Mysterious Universe Now Available in the App Store

The long wait is over. The official Mysterious Universe app is now available in the Apple App Store!

The app has been designed from the ground up for iOS7 by our own Elliot Birch to bring you the best mobile MU experience possible.

*ANDROID UPDATE* We're already seeing many people asking when the Android App will be released. Currently we do not have an ETA but we can say that designs are now being finalized. As mentioned at the end of this post the speed at which we can develop depends on your support and signing up for a Plus+ membership is the best way to show that support.

App Features

  • Easily download MU podcast episodes directly to your device
  • Automatic notifications of new episodes
  • Membership login for access to your Plus+ podcasts
  • 320kbps HQ option for Plus+ members
  • Option to remove ads (FREE for Plus+ members)
  • The latest news and articles from MU
  • Access to our FAQ, call-in line and Skype message bank


We love our mobile devices here at Mysterious Universe and are ecstatic to see our first app launch, however this is just the beginning. Mobile devices are fast becoming the primary way most of us access MU content, whether it be audio podcasts, video, or written articles. With this in mind we are committed to constantly improving the MU mobile experience with app updates and expansion to other platforms.

Future Features & Current Limitations

  • Automatic podcast downloads (we are waiting on an internal software update that will allow us to add this feature)
  • Plus+ Articles (a technical limitation means that Plus+ exclusive articles can currently only be viewed on our website)
  • Article comments
  • Android App


How quickly we can add the above features depends on you. App development is expensive and our resources as a small company are already stretched to the limit, yet there is a way you can help. By signing up to our Plus+ membership you not only ensure that we can keep creating great podcasts, videos and articles every week, you also help us push ahead with new features and improvements to our apps and website. The Android app is now receiving the final design touches and its release depends on your support.
