Training in Quarantine – Day 198

A very short walk due to heavy rain.

In other news, I found my replacement to Revolut — Curve.

Curve seems to be different. It’s not a bank of its own, but lets you put debit/credit cards onto your account and when you use the Curve card, the transaction goes onto the default card you have set on your account. And you can move the transaction from one card to the other (only once per transaction though).

Plus Curve supports FitBit Pay, meaning I can use that instead of Google Pay which has now broken again due to my device being rooted.

Revolut: A warning to Android users

It seems like Revolut’s latest Android update (6th November) has shafted some users, including me, rendering them unable to receive the update, and making the app disappear entirely from the Play Store for those users. No notification, no warning. Just a sudden stop to updates. I had to restore from a backup I made of the app, and was then able to transfer my money out of there.

I spoke to support, and their suggestion? Use a newer device.

I guess I will be closing my Revolut account.

Training in Quarantine – Day 194

Evening walk from yesterday that I forgot to log — short walk, the weather was looking ominous and did actually end up heavily raining.

Also, I got a notification a couple of days ago that Endomondo is being retired at the end of the year.

I knew this was going to happen soon at some point after Underarmor picked it up.

I’m saddened by this as Endomondo has been my go-to for a lot of running things, including helping me train for the Half Marathon. Strava is my alternative and a lot of my colleagues are on that, but I really do not like the interface and only really use it for storing my walk/run tracks.

Training in Quarantine – Day 193

Another evening walk, and this time I went to look at the back of a house that my folks really like post-viewing.

The back has a shared parking space — which, during the day seems okay, but in the evening, when everyone else is there, it looks very tight for space, meaning unless you have backed into the parking space, it’s going to be difficult to come out of the parking unless you reverse out.
