Curio overview

Curio is the premier brainstorming and project-management application designed to promote visual thinking. Using Curio's innovative freeform interface and tools, you can intuitively gather, associate, and recall your ideas, while easily managing all the notes and documents associated with your project.

The heart of Curio is the idea space. Think of idea spaces as your whiteboard, notebook, and sketchpad all wrapped up into one. Within a Curio project, you can create an unlimited number of idea spaces where you can place anything anywhere on the page. Brainstorm or organize your notes with freeform collages of text, images, URLs, documents, Mail messages, movies, and sounds. Give the idea space a note paper or graph paper style, or perhaps a linen paper texture. This is your idea space, with your notes and ideas. Make it the way you want it to look.

Curio is available in three different editions: Professional, Standard, and Core so customers can purchase based on their feature needs. Pricing information can be found here.

Bought the 14.4 pro version three month ago… The app got updated to version 15 with a very short list of 7 additional features which are either minor, or should already have been included in the pro version (like markdown images in text figure - what kind of app support markdown without image ?) and now it ask me to pay an additional whopping 69€ for the upgrade to the 99$ I already spend, while announcing a « great » update in the pricing model allowing a 1 year free update after every purchase instead of a yearly major version paid upgrade model (which happened to be in April every year) and a new « outstanding » subscription model in the Mac App Store for 76€/year. The developer is one more **** to the growing list of greedy developers which ask you to pay every ****ing year for bug fix or simple update to the last apple API or minor additional features or cosmetic update.

This app helps not only with projects, but with generating and organizing ideas. The ease of using idea spaces to put down thoughts with text, notecards, lists and more along with storing and viewing PDFs and images is worth the price.

This is the first “project management” app that actually helps me be productive. And I have tried them all, I think. With most software in this category, I find that I spend more time working on the *application* than I do working on the *project*. Curio has a delightfully accessible learning curve, and I was able to be actually working within 30 minutes of installation. In fact, my first use of the tool allowed a breakthrough on a stalled project. ‘Nuff said.

Leonardo da Vinci would have loved Curio, because it would have allowed him to be a brilliant polymath in multiple media with its master-craftsman's set of tools. I'm not Leonardo, but I find Curio's unlimited white board approach to be enticing and I probably only use about 25% of Curio's tools. No other app allows you to craft your information in as many ways: outlines, text, mind maps, tables, lists, images, index cards, multi-media. The app may seem expensive to some, but it can replace about five other apps. I'm impressed.
