Completely overwhelmed by the myriad features. Seems like this requires a steep learning curve. I question the merit of such a complex, deep program for the average joe. Fine to be dazzled by all the options, but I couldn't get the basic understanding of the core nature of the program from the presentation.


Don McAllister

It's a difficult one to demo as there are so many facets to the app. It's basically a way to brainstorm and note take, all in a single project file using multiple techniques.

Berto Bauza

Excellent presentation, very clear. I had a trial of the Curio software but couldn't understand it and thanks to this presentation I will buy it now. The presenter takes you by the hand through many of the features of Curio. There are a lot. I will use few of them but definitely it can speed up productivity in an exponential manner just within an application.

Well explained

Thank you so much for reviewing this awesome app! I'd never heard of it before, but after trying it out after watching this video I ended up purchasing it for work. It's definitely making things a lot easier.
