Curio is a new app that recently became available for smartphones. It’s a unique app that allows people to gather their news by listening to articles. The app joins together multiple publications, such as The Washington Post and The Guardian, to share the news with listeners.

According to the New York Times, more than half of Americans have listened to a podcast. With the growth of popularity in audio formats within media, Curio created a space where users can listen to multiple different stories at the click of the button. It covers topics such as politics, economics, and technology. Users have the option to curate their listening feed to which topics interest them most.

This app is gaining popularity and is well liked, with a rating of 4.8 out of 5. The rising popularity speaks to the importance of creative and new forms of digital news delivery.
