    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.

    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.

    • Hi again everyone, Yesterday afternoon I did another stint of warning sellers on eBay who are selling their hudls (both 1s and 2s) as fully working, unaware that their buyers will want to return them as faulty due to this issue... However, it looks like I've triggered some red flag on eBay and the number of messages I can send per day has been limited (to 6, it seems, after having sent 35 yesterday) so I wondered if someone else could take over for a bit? Someone on this thread did say earlier that they'd been doing the same. I've just had an online chat with eBay and they couldn't see any reason for my outgoing messages being restricted and promised to get the restriction lifted, but if someone else could warn the slew of new listings that would be good. Thanks!
    • I have just come off the phone with tesco about my 2 hudl 2"s that won't connect and have been told its not their problem and they won't do anything about it and it's tough luck go buy a new one... Now both these tablets were working fine before hand and I've had them 2 years from new but sorry to say they don't want to know and say its not there software update so that's it!!!!!! Anyone want a couple of expensive bookends... Dave
    • It will certainly be interesting to see what Tesco IT's reply To BelAstair's message is....it could be quite revealing. My guess is that they've gone for the 'end of useful life' approach not because they can't generate a solution, but because they've been told by higher management that it isn't acceptable to generate one that commits Tesco to any further support resource in future. I feel sure that's the real sticking point....  If I'm right, they might well be open a compromise in providing a solution that permanently removes any future support  commitment. In practice, given that most users won't be capable of the ingenious solutions we've already seen on this forum, this would probably mean their providing an update which removes the requirement to go through Tesco's servers during setup. Provided they issued the necessary instructions for this, and warned everyone with affected HUDLs to run it within a reasonable timeframe, they could then withdraw server support. It would also get them out of a potentially nasty reputational backlash if the broadcast media do start to take an interest. The debacle of the accounting scandal is still relatively fresh in peoples' minds, and they won't want this dredged up again. Let's hope reason prevails...
    • So does this mean Tesco could turn off the server permanently?    Also can someone please tell me how to get rid of box for grocer's quote I decided not to use? It appears in the reply box all the time now.
