A Lot or a Little?

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
There's a lot to learn on this app, with more than 25,000 lessons on topics such as cooking, history, second languages, and guitar lessons. Curious - the game of lifelong learning is a terrific way to learn a little about a lot of things in only a few minutes each day. Although there's some stuff here that will appeal to kids and others just looking to find some fun info, far more material is geared toward highly motivated teens and adults. There's excellent content, such as NPR's radio broadcast Science Friday, while other content is less engaging (some videos are grainy, and other audio is not well produced). Some of the best content on Curious is in the "Curious Conversations," in which Curious.com's CEO talks with experts in various fields. If your teen loves to learn or might need a spark to get interested, this app's free trial will let you see if it's a good fit.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
