@Miss_K_Rya  @CathalTwomeyn  @DonnellyStephen  @fiannafailpartyThat ’s a request for Apple really. To make it work properly, they needed to change the operating system. Otherwise it would kill the battery on your phone and probably not work properly into the bargain. It’s why the NHS dumped its app.

@CathalTwomey  @DonnellyStephenI  @fiannafailpartyt  won’t work on the iPhone 6 because it needs the latest version of iOS 13 to run - unfortunately the IPhone 6 doesn’t have it.

The HSE’s new Covid tracker app explained.

Can I just point out to those asking anyone who is using the app to delete their contact details: that’s not how the app works. At all.

Also, if you are wary of this app, let me walk you through the mess that is social media and ad tracking.

The Covid tracker app excludes under 16s. But like most apps, that’s policed via a button that says “yes I’m over16”

See this is why we can't have nice things. Also: I love Krispy Kreme, but not enough to queue for an hour.

Peter Mark chargingextra to do long regrowth and fix home dye jobs: isn’t that literally what salons are supposed to do for the prices they already charge? GTFO.

So last night I had an experience and a half. Let me tell you about why I’ll never charge my phone by my bed again. (Spoiler: it involves a cable going on fire in my hand)

This is Baby Emmi. Currently awol in Faro Airport (though not in her “armour”, in a pink onesie with B on it instead). One very upset four year old is hoping she might find her way home. If anyone spots her...
