Full of stuff google thinks I like. It seems to think I like coronation street, Sunderland football club and Everton football club for some reason . Can’t influence what I want to see at all. Feed still full of news from sources I specifically blocked. Fed up of tying to hide these sources. Unless these sources are being prioritised cos they pay google and I can’t get rid of them. Choosing “show fewer news like this” doesn’t make any difference either. And the more I try to hide and filter, the app slows down to a crawl.

Unless google lets me see what topics it decided I like and let me change it , this is a pointless exercise on a poorly performing app.

Old news


I liked it at first. It drew on news that interested me. There was a little too much trashy news, gossip, then that is what tend to click on. I am perfect for anything click bait. Chuck something trashy my way and watch me click it!

However, this morning it threw me with an article in the For You section. ‘Manchester’s worst night of violence in years’. I am from Manchester but I am currently on holiday in North Wales so I was shocked to see the article. On reading the content I discovered it was from 2008! Why? Evidently the AI needs a tweak.

Back to Flipboard which has never let me down.

One step forward, two back


I always liked this app, which seemed to work better for me than Apple News, but since the update it is more problematic. It insists on serving me news that I am not interested in or sports events. I tell it I’m not interested, but it makes no difference and I just end up with more of the same. It also judders badly - too busy loading video I don’t want to watch than providing a smooth experience. Overall, just too much of a pain to use. A shame really.
