Curio Express


For over a decade, thousands of customers around the world have used our flagship product, Curio, to create notebooks filled with freeform idea space pages containing notes, research, and ideas for their work, school, and personal projects. Curio Express is for those that don’t need Curio’s project notebook support but want something more than yet another mind mapping, outlining, or flowcharting app. Within a Curio Express document, you have a single, spacious freeform idea space page where you can use all of Curio’s incredible features detailed below for brainstorming, organization, and creative exploration.

Curio Express can also open, in a read-only mode, project notebooks containing multiple idea spaces created using the flagship Curio product. You can even use the built-in presentation mode to view notebooks as a slideshow.

A Curio Express idea space allows you to place anything anywhere including:
• Text (with support for image or file attachments).
• Images (with support for captions).


• PDFs (with integrated PDF annotation tools).
• Audio and video files.
• Web links and WebArchives.
