I guess I always assumed that it was. Maybe it's just that I have a shitty phone.
Your crappy plan means you have limited data (so should download the app whilst connected to wifi).

Even a crappy phone with crappy storage should manage the app size ok, as it is small.

Perhaps you don’t have the right settings enabled.

If its an iPhone go to Settings ->> General ->> iPhone Storage and enable Offload Unused Apps.

Thanks. Yeah, I think that's what it is -- that I have limited data. I'm constantly receiving notifications on there that I have very little storage space left.

Re: Coronavirus

Holland. Hospitalizations are almost zero though so far. Still, wouldn't surprise me if we look the same in a few weeks. To be fair, they never got to such a low incidence as we had.

Uni Hospital Geneva study finds 67% of GE population with antibodies.

Probably highest in Switzerland.

Are cases a concern now?
Everyone vulnerable has been vaccinated, the tail end are young, fit and healthy, which is clearly backed up by the hospitalisations, length of stay, ICU and numbers of deaths.
Anyone not vaccinated needs to remain vigilant, if they’re concerned about the virus, as does anyone at risk, vaccinated or not.
Delta seems unstoppable in any case.

Sure, just shared this to allow a sneak preview. I reside in a canton where 44% of the population have one jab.

Oh dear. Is that anti-vaxxers or poor supply?
I thought we were swimming in the vaccine now?

Look at the stats and click on the individual cantons in the table, it flattens out everywhere. In the conservative parts of the country earlier than in cities.

Data allowance and storage space have no link. Data allowance is how much you can download/upload to your phone without wifi (this is part of your mobile plan). Storage is how much stuff your phone can physically hold (nothing to do with your phone contract).

It says between 1st June and 2nd July so should be substantially higher now. FWIW uk is somewhere approaching 90% (Somerset recently became the first place to get to 90% of adults with one dose - and then you add on the infected and unvaccinated on top), so we aren't even nearly there even in GE.

Nope, not semantics. Holland is the name of 2 provinces, the rest is not Holland. Koninkrijk der Nederlanden, kingdom of the Netherlands.

No intention of discussing that, I have my opinion on that (happy to invite you to try some delicious double salted licorice though )

I love the bikes everywhere though.

Speaking of foreign countries, Eastern European Front News - In CZ the R number was just 1.43 and is increasing..Hospitalisations are low. For now. Everybody wears a FFP2, even little kids. Everybody is distancing. Delta is expected, big wave predicted for Sept/Oct. 2 new walk in centers opened for quick vaxin' without registration. The vax gap between the two doses just got shortened to 21 days to prevent big Delta.
