You have work projects and home projects, school classes to manage and book reports to research, vacations to plan and novels to write, web sites to design and lab results to organize. Perhaps you currently use a collection of notebooks, your office whiteboard, scraps of sticky notes, oodles of browser bookmarks, and multiple documents scattered around your hard disk.
Basically you have a mess.
In Curio, create a project to represent your real-world project, then fill it with everything related to that project including notes, bookmarks, images, documents, and much, much more. Use Curio's integrated lists, mind maps, tables, and index cards to organize all of this information or just place it anywhere on the page. Speaking of which, your projects can have dozens or even hundreds of pages, which we call idea spaces.
Anything placed into Curio can be associated with tags, flags, checkboxes, priorities, ratings, and start/due dates and durations, for fast and easy searching and task management.
The best part is you are in complete control over your idea spaces. Make them sloppy or organized, freeform or in a grid, and place anything anywhere. This is called visual thinking and perfectly mirrors your real-world notebooks and whiteboards so you are instantly comfortable in Curio’s innovative environment.
Thousands of customers around the world use Curio in a surprisingly diverse range of occupations. We have students and professors, engineers and designers, lawyers and writers, entrepreneurs and filmmakers, all using Curio for information gathering, brainstorming, and creative exploration.

You’ll love the simplified and modernized user interface with detachable inspector popovers. The entire UI was rebuilt and redesigned from scratch for ease of use.
A new, incredibly simple method for inserting figures, lists, mind maps, index cards, WebViews, new audio/video recordings, Google Docs, and much, much more.
Curio now makes it super easy to insert a streaming YouTube or Vimeo video directly into your idea space.
Edit PDF’s live within the idea space with support for annotations and markup.
Curio mind maps now support colored boundary areas that enclose a parent figure and all of its children.
The method for customizing collection styles is now much, much easier to manage and control.
Calendar and Reminder syncing has been greatly improved with support for iCloud-based calendars and reminders, and sharing existing calendars.
Curio now requires Mac OS X 10.7.4 or above. Major portions of Curio have been completely rebuilt to take full advantage of the newest Apple OS X releases, including native full screen & autosave support.
High-resolution images for the user interface are included so Curio 8 looks gorgeous on retina displays.
The new Share button is a fantastic, easy-to-use method for sharing your Curio creations with others.
Drag text, image, and PDF files or weblinks directly to the Organizer allowing full-window viewing and editing. The Organizer therefore becomes a more versatile binder of notes and documents.
Quickly filter the Organizer based on last modified date, label, tag, or title.
With a single click you can now view more than one idea space at once either side-by-side or above-below.
A new mouse-wheel technique makes flipping through dozens of index cards incredibly fast and easy.
Tons of internal refactoring and rewriting have made Curio faster, more optimized, and much more robust.
No more monolithic asset library containing all data. Instead individual asset files provide a more robust solution, allows for Dropbox browsing of previews.
A powerful, extensible repository system allows you to share templates, styles, stencils, color swatches, and Sleuth modules, through network shares or Dropbox.
Curio has adopted Evernote’s OAuth authentication, which will be required on November 1st, 2012 for all 3rd party access, and their latest API for more robust access.
Curio now uses Apple’s new AV Foundation framework to provide robust audio and video recording features.
Please note some features, like Dossier and Flashlight, have been removed to tidy Curio 8’s feature set.
No more Core, Standard, or Pro editions. This simplifies purchasing, support, and development, and guarantees you have all the great features at your fingertips.
