Update: now on top of everything else Google insist on asking you to sign in every time you try to use the app. ENOUGH! I don't want to have to close an ad for Google Now every time I open the app. It is time to start using another search service.
Maybe they should change the name to Big Brother. Of course, we live with Google & it has become as omnipresent & uncontrollable as the weather. But it has gotten to be just plain creepy. I really don't want to ask a search engine "How about this weekend?"
