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.

What’s new in version 23.0

Updated on Nov 01 2022

Fixes
  • Quick Find: Fixed an issue where Quick Find didn't refresh the query results automatically when switching windows or tabs to another project.
  • Status Shelf Rewrite: Fixed a bunch of Status shelf user interface and thread timing issues with a significant rewrite to make it much more reliable. This includes fixing an issue related to figure tasks with asset URLs or link URLs being incorrectly written to the proxy project file making the Status and project galleries potentially inaccurate.
  • Journal Title: Fixed issue with journal entries having the wrong default title if coming from a template. By default they have no appended title, just the journal entry date, but if you set Journal Adopt Template Title then it will take the template's title.
  • Daily Journal: Fixed the Daily Journal journal template so it didn't have odd header figures.
  • Auto Layout: Fixed an issue with automatically scooting figures closely underneath a figure. It now does a better job at recursively scooting other figures as the scooting cascades down. The related Geometry inspector checkbox has also been renamed to Resizes should move figures closely underneath which is more accurate.
  • Index Card Markdown Lists: Fixed issue where markdown lists in lined index cards where not abiding by the lined spacing. The root cause was that markdown text figures weren't starting first with the paragraph attributes of the text figure itself and then applying master markdown styles to that, instead it was taking the general macOS text system defaults which meant it wasn't getting set line spacing values.

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.
