  • Fantastic content at a great price, but bogged down by technical issues

    By grievousfan91
    I recently subscribed for a whole year of this service, and it is the best value in streaming I’ve found. The content is of high quality and right up my alley. Both new programs and ones I haven’t seen in years that cater to my interests in science and history. My only issue concerns screen mirroring to my tv. I use a lightning to HDMI adapter to mirror my iPhone XR and the app regularly will cause the picture either fade to black, freeze, or simple cut out. I never lose audio, but the image seems to always to act up on me.
  • Unreliable!!!

    By Green61
    Amazing content but streaming and chromecast are super unreliable. Clearly a lack in development.
  • I Love it!

    By Duxford549
    Do yourself a favor and spend the money to subscribe to this! It is the BEST streaming service I’ve ever seen. So many programs to teach you. I will never be without it.
  • Good channel.... Tricky App

    By MotoCamper
    Download app for free.......BUT....... if you want to actually watch anything, you have to subscribe and pay. You can delete app but it stays in the “cloud” using space. If they trick you into downloading app for what looks like a free service, what else are they tricking you into? Consider this app “Click Bait”....
  • If you like science and history this is for you

  • Amazing content

    By Alan IOS Fan
    This is money well spent on a great assortment of interesting documentaries out there. The interface could be better.
  • Best subscription service

    By Colinb1264
    I, like most people here love documentaries. This app/service is the most incredible subscription based app I’ve ever come across as far as dollar per enjoyment/entertainment/education, and I’m very happy with my purchase of a year plan which will inevitably become more. If you enjoy watching any of the YouTube channels sponsored by curiosity stream, this will not disappoint. It’s the Netflix I’ve wanted all along! Very highly recommend! I love the product but the low price is what actually convinced me to pull the trigger on it, it’s a great selling point.
  • Content is great, but playback on the app needs work

    By Mandomorado
    Definitely gonna stay subscribed to them, but if possible, at least give the app a chance to rotate video and more responsive full screen button (too much trial an error not able to go full screen. The hit zone is too small)
  • Almost a perfect app

    By dan67547
    I like almost everything sbout the app. Many of us im sure watch at night and it would be nice if you could lock and turn off your screen and just listen. The documentary stops.
  • Great content; bad app

    By 683710uniq
    The content is mostly very good, but the app is very bad. It won’t show you which content you have already viewed and which is new- and you will not remember every title on your own. There is no way to use the accelerometer to automatically go into landscape or portrait mode, there is no way to go into landscape mode during the introductory commercial which proceeds every show, nor a way to skip the ad either, even though it’s always for at&t. There is one ad per show, even though you pay for the service! The app also doesn’t handle you switching in and out of the app well at all. Often the video will be frozen when you switch back to CuriosityStream, and often your phone will go to sleep while playing the curiosity video. It is almost as badly designed and implemented as the PBS Video app; The worst video app I have run across. They could learn a lot from Netflix or YouTube.
