Can an app make you smarter? This one wants to try.
This app, which is made by a company that spun out of Discovery Communications, takes the joy of learning and distills it into a form that can suit even the busiest person.
If your goal is to learn one new thing a day, this app will probably put you at least four or five things ahead thanks to a daily digest of curated and interesting facts on everything from ancient Egypt to the far reaches of space.
If you find something particularly interesting, you can like it, which helps the app figure out what subjects interest you. If you really like what you read, you can also share facts to social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
Users will need an account to use Curiosity. In addition to its daily digest, the app offers facts on a variety of subjects from anatomy to technology.
You can find information on a variety of areas that may strike your fancy — or perhaps try your hand at something new.
Free, for iOS and Android devices.
