Training in Quarantine – Day 306

Today’s been raining, windy, sunny, rainy again and repeat all day.

Managed to get a walk in between the rain and wind phases

Finished reinstalling my apps and had a few issues with location. Waze and Google Maps had trouble locking onto GPS and found out that even though the option to allow location “only while app is running” was available, I needed to set the permission to “at any time” otherwise they would lock on.

Citymapper had no issue

Just Eat still has issues and does not have a “at any” level for location permission, so I just use the postcode for that.

Most of the apps are now working. A few will not install from Play Store, presumably they’re not built to support Android 11 yet:

  • WeChat
  • Fenix 2

For Fenix, I went back to Plume (I had previously paid for the Premium version and that works fine). I installed GBoard so I can put gifs into my tweets again (one feature I really liked from Fenix)

WeChat, I ended up sideloading from apkmirror and it worked fine.
