Curio: hear great journalismfor iOS



Articles on the go

It’s difficult to keep up with world events, but Curio changes that. With this app, you can hear well-written articles as audio files, much like how you listen to audiobooks.

Stay updated

Curio is a good app that satisfies your curiosity with a subscription to audio journalism.

Audiobooks and podcasts are a great way to listen to your favorite topics or read a book without turning a page. Curio brings you various journalist articles from leading, trusted newspapers and magazines, all on audio file.

If you own an Apple watch, you can access more content. A free daily edit is available exclusively for the Apple watch, giving you quick access to a daily dose of knowledge anywhere, anytime.

Whether you're out shopping, doing your daily run, or relaxing on the sofa at home, you'll be kept up to date from topics involving politics, science, technology, and more. The full breadth of options is great, and it gives you the freedom to tailor your listening.

With a free trial of 10 articles, you'll have more than enough time to make your decision of taking out a monthly or yearly subscription or uninstalling the app. Subscriptions have unlimited access, and the annual plan comes with a seven-day free trial.

Your selection of newspapers and magazines is massive. You can pick from well-known papers and magazines such as The Guardian, Financial Times, Bloomberg, The Economist, and many more. As there are many options, you feel the freedom of choice. For those who want to have a comprehensive understanding of the world around thiem, that detail can prove rather important in the current media landscape.

The only downside to an app this handy is, as mentioned before, the free trial limit of 10 articles. Fortunately, with low monthly prices, it's an easy sacrifice for knowledge.

Where can you run this program?

Curio is available on IOS 11.0 or later, and Android 5.0 and up.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Audiobooks from Audible and Spotify are both great options for alternative information you can play while working. Spotify is entirely free to use, unlike the other two, but it doesn’t provide the same content.

Our take

Curio is a handy little app, but you'll need to purchase a subscription before enjoying the full, unlimited experience. This won’t be convenient if you’re on a budget, but if you can spare the cash, you’ll find that it’s worth the price.

Should you download it?

Yes. Even if you only use the ten free articles, this app is worth the information it provides.


  • Free edit daily on the Apple watch
