Curio version 8.5 is out.

I have been using Curio all day, every day in my practise as a lawyer since a few months after switching to Mac - about three years ago.

This is hands down the most powerful program available for the more...

You can see Curio in action from the Zengobi youtube channel. This helped me understand the power of this application.

Second app I cannot use since upgrading to 10.9.1. earlier today. The other app being Chronosync. I can open both apps but cannot open their files or create new ones.. Weirdness. Two apps I use veeeeery regularly.. I'm screwed.

To add two things to my earlier review:

1. Curio's developer recently released version 8.6.3 of Curio to coincide with the public release of Mavericks. What the release notes do not reveal is that the developer made Curio fully Mavericks compatible within one or two days of the first Mavericks developer preview. As usual, utterly impressive commitment from the developer. I have had no problem in committing my entire professional document base to Curio as I know that the developer will always be there to ensure that Curio continues to work, come what may.

2. I have recently started to use Curio as a fully-fledged task management application. It has replaced my previous dedicated to-do app (which I won't name directly for the moment). It's a little too much to describe in this short review, but trust me, one can use Curio as a complete to-do manager which makes other dedicated to-do apps look weak by comparison. The chief advantage which Curio has in this regard is its flexibility, its ability to interlink with other Curio projects on which one might be working, and its seamless integration with iCal (oops, "Calendar" and iCloud) and Busycal (and with the Reminders app). Curio has a dedicated to-do pane which lists one's tasks with their due dates, and simply by clicking on any entry listed in this view, one will be taken directly to the task as it appears either in one's dedicated "to-do" project, or in any other project in which one created the task in the first place. Fantastic.

I've tried them all: Yojimbo, DevonThink, Together ... you name it. Curio is VERY VERY good. I'm still wrapping my mind around how to use it most effectively for my work (academic researcher/writer). It is changing the way I work. It remains to be seen whether this is good or bad for my productivity. In some ways it works just the way I want (love that I can copy links from Bookends). In other ways I still find myself stumbling over how I want to do things with Curio. By that, I don't really mean "learning how to use Curio." I mean figuring out how Curio and I can come together for a more effective workflow.

No review from me yet, because I'm still too new with this amazing piece of software.

Not a review either since I just downloaded the trial... but, did you ever figure out how to use it for academic research? Trying to figure out if this would be great for dissertation (UGH) organization, writing... I am trying powerpoint in a note card way with notes and original file name. I guess I'm old school ;-) Otherwise, I just procrastinate with trying to find the best ( which I have done, but it's not a good use of time...) Thanks!!!

@AshBP I've been using Curio for several years now and I recently completed an MA using Evernote and Curio together. The challenge for Curio is that you have to figure out your own workflow and then stick with it. I dump all my reading notes and web research into Evernote. Then, I organize it in Curio using outlines, mind maps and by grouping clusters of ideas. I grab the "note link" from Evernote and paste them into Curio for reference. I make lists of points I want make in Curio and link to the source in Evernote or my bibliography manager. When I do the actual writing, I use a word processor in a window next my Curio outline. You can check off items in Curio as you cover them in your paper and rearrange things in Curio as needed. This has worked well for me.

How on Earth had I not yet tried this piece of magic ? It's a little hard commenting on it specifically.. but it opens doors, so many doors.. In a sense it's up there with DevonThink (though a different beast).. meaning it can adapt to one's creative organisational whims. Have only "dabbled" with it for a couple of days and can already see it as a hub for managing projects, clients, planning etc.. This is top-notch software ;0)

Curio version 8.5 is out.

I have been using Curio all day, every day in my practise as a lawyer since a few months after switching to Mac - about three years ago.

This is hands down the most powerful program available for the Mac. Despite its incredible power, it is incredibly simple to use.

Curio provides the best, and in my view, the only way to properly organise and work with PDF documents and has allowed me to run a completely paperless practice, both in court and in the office.

Even more importantly, George Browning, the developer, is incredibly approachable and regularly incorporates suggestions and reported fixes into regular point releases of Curio. I have never encountered a developer who is more helpful and engaging in this regard.

If your work, or hobby, involves collecting, organising, linking between and manipulating PDF (or other) documents (and much else besides) you owe it to yourself to try out Curio.

Thank you, George, for creating Curio.
