Good articles, poor reading


Curio has an excellent selection of articles, but the people who read them are terrible in terms of their pronunciation. Either they don’t look up pronunciations or they think they know the correct way to pronounce even common words such as “interlocutor” “teleological,” “Anaxagoras,” and “correlative.” I find this very distracting. I’m thinking about cancelling for this reason. Also the readers seem to treat all sentences as worthy of equal emphasis. Slightly better than a version read by a computer. The value to me right now is that I can find out whether I want to read the text myself.

Hi Larry, thanks very much for trying out Curio and for your feedback. We take pronunciations and the type of delivery very seriously. With Anaxagoras, as it's a Greek word, with two different pronunciations - one in Greek and one in English - we chose to consciously go with the Greek one as it seemed more authentic.

Also, each voice actor has a different natural style, which we encourage them to use as much as possible. So I would urge you to listen to a few other pieces as well. And please do not hesitate to contact us at if you would like any clarifications or have any issues. One of us will always be available to chat. Thanks once again for checking out Curio and for engaging with us so deeply.

What to expect on the App...


It’s beneficial for anyone interested in expanding their horizons to invest in App like this one in question. You will be put in a trance, which in return learn new matters from many different discourse, and through enjoyable fashion.

Learning doesn’t have to be boredom, or a remedial task at hand. Limitless potential here on this App for all education levels. You come to listen to articles, yet a impetus for a appetite to reach the stars in knowledge appears.

I adore the psychology portions in the beginning primarily, then I got drawn to totally out my spectrums categories like art, history, and feminist articles. It’s like a Pandora box of massive enlightenment potential ready for the mortal to grasp, and attain absolute wisdom.

Stay thirsty my friends, this App will quench your thirst!

Hi there,

Thank you so much for trying out Curio and for your amazing review. We're very pleased that you were able to discover new categories of listening - that is something we consciously aim to promote, knowing the joy of serendipitous discovery ourselves!

You'll also see a lot of new updates with functional improvements in the coming weeks, which I hope will help you enjoy the service better.

Thanks again for this!

Would love to use this app but...

1. PLEASE let me pay per article. I listen to 1 every once in a while, I don’t want to subscribe. Give me a per article option.

2. This app, just like the beta, makes it hard to find a specific article. I spot one online, jump to the app, use search but nothing comes up, search through the publication and sometimes find it, often not (even though it’s embedded in the site so I know it exists). Add an open in app links to your embedded web player please.
