Ratings and Reviews
Review of Google as Search Engine
It is hardly surprising that wherever one goes these days that people don’t say, “Look it up”; instead it’s “Just Google it.” For me, it is not only supremely convenient, having my searches rated for me (& recalled); but the more I look into the company itself, the more I am impressed by its work ethic; the high degree of responsibility that it displays as the “custodian of the world’s knowledge; the outstanding manner in which it appears to handle staff issues (& controversy); and, lastly, its (seemingly?!) unselfish ways in which it spends its profits on benefits for mankind (eg Google Space). I’m very glad Google is there! You set the worldwide bar for ethical business dealings.
Only one complaint...
I love the Google app. It does what it is meant to. I don’t even need a browser installed on my phone with the app.
My only issue (and I sincerely hope the devs are reading this) is when I open the app and before you enter any searches, the app gives suggested new items to read.
I’m not sure what these results are based on or how the algorithm works. Obviously I do get a lot results and suggestions of things I AM interested in. But I also get a lot of cr@p that I don’t care about... like sport, certain politics, finance, the Kardashians and similar rubbish.
I tap the 3 dots on the side and select “not interested in...” but these same things are CONSTANTLY being suggested to me no matter how many times I say I’m not interested.
So the algorithm doesn’t work properly and it’s quite annoying because I like looking at the suggestions because it’s mostly relevant. Mostly. The rest is BS.
False "No connection" alert
Are Google and Apple undergoing some dispute that has caused ALL Google Apps to misbehave on all my iOS devices?!
Every Google app claims "No connection" whether I'm connected via LTE or a high speed WiFi connection. I then have to toggle the data and or WiFi switches on and off several times before any of the Google apps acknowledge I'm connected. And I have to go through the rigamorale with every app individually, multiple times a day.
What is happening?! I'm begging you to fix it! I can't do a thing productively anymore!
