Can an app make you smarter? This one wants to try.

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION -

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.
