  • Please fix offline download

    By nmartinez0779
    Downloaded content stops playing and begins an never ending buffing spinning circle. I have to close the app and start playback, to get it working again and worst of all, it goes back to the beginning of the documentary. Otherwise, I love the content!!!!
  • Please Stop Auto-Play

    By Wyldoxz
    The content is superb. It’s what the History, Science, and Discovery Channels used to be before they were all infected by the reality tv bug and lost sight of their true purpose. That being said, the inability to disable or otherwise control the auto-play (on iOS and TVOS) is frustrating. It doesn’t even pull something next from your watchlist, which means some random video that one may or may not be interested in is now taking up residence in one’s feed and history. It’s a nuisance.
  • Offline download needs work

    By Rajesh paramesh
    It’s been more than 7 months subscribed to CuriosityStream, I really enjoyed watching all the documentaries. I have been waiting for offline download so that I can enjoy my long drive commute everyday, but it has some buffering problem. I have to reopen the app to keep running the offline downloaded videos. My request to the developer is to fix the offline videos problem.
  • Does not remember playback location

    By Someguy6347733
    When using Chromecast, playback location is not correctly retained. Please test the Chromecast functionality.
  • As other say, the app is the weak link

    By EcoEric
    Still: It is buggy and you cannot full screen zoom on iPhone X models. I can’t even flip the video to the other side when rotating my phone in landscape. Update and fix the app like most other video services.

  • Great App !

    By MrBumpie
    I’m a documentary junkie ! This definitely scratches my itch for knowledge! A great value too ! This is like having PBS’s Nova, the Science Channel, Nat Geo and the Discovery channels rolled in to one, just a click away ! They say variety is the spice of life, this app is a full on spice cabinet! One feature I especially enjoy is how mainstream media usually just touches on an event, where this app goes in depth on the story. An example is the recent discovery of a black hole. A two minute cover on mainstream media After watching a story on CuriosityStream l now understand it better. The bonus is seeing the people behind its discovery. It’s like they are having a conversation with me in my living room ! Education with no test questions, just for pure educational knowledge! Kudos to the developers and those associated with the development of this amazing app! A sincere thank you to the men and women behind the development and production of this app !
  • Wonderful

    By Jett1986
    I rarely write reviews for apps, even more so positive ones. But CuriosityStream is one of my favorites. I spend more time watching it than Netflix and Hulu nowadays. I highly recommend this app and the amazing content it offers. I’ve seen documentaries on topics I had never thought of or heard of. And the way the information is presented is far more objective than a lot of documentaries I’ve seen. The content is wonderful and detailed AND it’s presented in a way that is easy to understand; for most topics at least, quantum physics is going to go over my head every time most likely lol.
  • Awesome

    By Alejoarzia
    Using IPhone 6 and app is great when I travel...and superb 4K visuals when I am home on my big Screen. The content is everything I missed when I cut the “cable” service. Well worth the annual fee! This is true TV for nerds as my brother put it.
