  • Why do I have to constantly sign in?

    By Genopsdir
    Can't the app remember my login information? How hard is it to do? I'm paying for this app to work and it's one more thing I have to do. Besides all the other kinks in the app, I enjoy the content. Navigating is difficult at best and I wish I could delete items in the viewing area that I don't like and didn't finish. Maybe that's why they're still there.
  • Paid Subscription

    By Urban03
    Paid Subscription monthly. Just stop working—then deactivated the account.
  • Great for many curiosities & cheap.

    By Half Scam
    The one thing I'd like to see is its availability on the Wii & Wii U, like YouTube & Netflix!

  • Great Content, Streaming Works Well

    By autdid
    I’ve found the documentaries on here to be really well done and interesting. The variety is well worth the cost. I have not have any issues with streaming others have mentioned, and indeed have found it more reliable than the ABC, CBS, and netflix streaming apps on my ipad. I would love to have the ability to have the video play in the corner of my screen while I also use the ipad for other work, as is possible on netflix and amazon prime, but for when I have time to focus solely on watching a show, it is really fantastic.
  • Is Anybody Out There?

    By Garzecki
    I'm talking about the developer of this app. You need to fix this app. I was going to give as a Christmas gift to several friends but I'm not giving them crap like this. 1- unable to play the video that goes with the selection. Just tried with Unbelievable Breakthroughs. Starting the first episode, plays a video on Rome. Try again and it's a video of Pompeii. Try again and it's a video of..... well, what it's not is the first episode of Unbelievable Breakthroughs. Second episode doesn't play at all. Third episode appears to be correct. BUT this is happening on many other selections as well and been like this for months. Why is this not already fixed! Seems like being able to play the selected episode is a primary feature of this app. 2. Need to have control over auto play. Currently no control at all. Not so much a problem with multiple episodes but at end of series a brand new series auto plays. Not even on my watch list. 3. Does not track what I watch between different devices. If I stop watching an episode on one iPad, my other iPad or iPhone have no clue. 4. No way to accurately or easily track what I've watched or what I'm watching... despite the watchlist. I find documentaries that I've never watched or selected in my watchlist and those actually in progress are missing. Even browsing through selections, there should be some easily defined mark to indicate the video has been watched. 4. Need three to five stars instead of thumbs up thumbs down. A middle ground is helpful to indicate that the documentary was good but could use work (like poor sound quality). 5. And finally I'm curious as to why 1 minute is an acceptable episode and (15) 1 minute episodes is a documentary. In conclusion, I had high hopes for Curiosity Stream. While not all videos are thumbs up, many were quite interesting. But for the reasons stated above and even other issues I did not expound on , I give Curiosity Stream a THUMBS DOWN. I will be canceling my subscription and recommending friends DONT watch. Get your act together and maybe I'll be back.
  • App needs work

    By jagkit
    The app needs work. Issues with Apple TV. For some reason video play back would cut to an image of a humming bird or just a blank screen but audio would continue. Would go idle and stop all playback as well.
  • But rough around the edges
