    Curve launches on Android (with £5 free on signup and for each referral)


    PaulOBrien

    Curve, the virtual credit / debit card that has already launched on iOS has finally launched out of private Beta on Android and is downloadable now from the Play Store.

    After signing up to a free Curve card, you can assign your other cards to it and switch between them at will, paying via conventional means or using contactless payments. It works incredibly well and is a great way of keeping track of transactions etc. Purchase notifications are pushed to your phone instantly, email receipts can be switched on and receipt image capture, currently available on iOS, will be coming to the Android app in the future. There's no Android Pay support as yet, I really hope this comes at some point!

    The card itself (the entry level 'Blue' version) was previously paid for, but it is now free for a limited time. A 'Black' version is also available which will offer a higher cashback rate in the future as is a black version with an included card wallet.

    As well as the cards you load on the app, a built in reward card is included. This is empty on a normal signup, but if you sign up with the code 'TBXZH', you will then be credited with £5 the first time you use the card. For each friend you refer, you will get an additional £5. Pretty great really, who doesn't like free money?

    There are some useful value add features I've enjoyed in the time I've had the app on iOS, such as the ability to withdraw cash against credit cards with no fee (as the CC just sees it as a regular transaction) and the excellent foreign exchange rates. I used it abroad and got better rates than my Fair FX card!

    Head on over to the Play Store to download.

    [Note: This is targetting self employed and entrepreneurs right now. So determine how entrepreneurial you are!]

    I was really excited about this until I saw there is no Android pay support.  My bank is taking forever to 'get with the programme' having only introduced Apple's pay system THIS YEAR.

    • can you please tell me how you signed the zip file because with zipsigner it doesnt work 😕 says footer error in recovery Greetings
    • Hello. I've been using this smartphone since 2016, I went through the official upgrade to Android 5.1.1 and then to 6.0.1. Long story short I'm now with TWRP 3.2.3-0 and Lineage 14.1 (Android 7.1.2). I found some interesting bugs: one is that if you have low battery, about to self power off, and you switch on the torch, it stays on even after the phones is powered off, and you can't turn it off whatsoever, except plugging in the charger and switch on the phone again I guess, but I didn't try it. The matter is that if you let the torch on to let the battery discharge completely, and the light goes off, when you charge it again and switch on the phone you can't switch on the torch anymore, even tho the system claims is on, it doesn't beam any light from the flash led. The only way to "reset" this status is to open the phone, removing the back cover, unscrew 3 screws that hold a tiny bar and manually disconnect the battery (most rightside connector) and then reconnect it. Not even holding the power button helps. Another bug is that if you turn on the phone, and then, without putting it on stand-by, check with some kind of cpu monitoring app the cpu cores activity, the less powerful cores of the A53 are awake and running. If you put the phone in stand by and then re-awake it up, they are always on sleep or "disconnected" or similar status. Even tho it seems that this doesn't affect performance, so it seems that they doesn't show correct running status but still works. Last but the most important: the phone THROTTLES at room temperature!!! If you try a cpu intensive app, the cores throttles at 800 MHz or less, and if it heats more it goes down even to 200 MHz stuttering everything! I don't know if it gots bad thermal spread design or is it a thermal sensor bug, since in system monitor apps it shows temperature above 49~50 in idle while room temp is 20 to 23 °C and over 67-68 while running full calculations! Can anybody confirm or else suggest me some solutions to these issues? Thanks.
    • It worked well on my liquid a1 (running custom rogers rom). Should work on any acer based 2.2 roms I think. But I cant guarantee 😉 use at own risk.
    • I have experience this fine product by Honor. There are some features which are competing with expense mobile companies as well.I'm looking forward to buy honor 20 pro for some latest updated version of it.
