Is there an option to log out from the IH shop account on the mobile version? I couldn't find it :-[.

Interesting. I had a look and couldn’t find it either. Perhaps the @The Web Minions  know?
Thanks. I've added it to the dev list to investigate.

i know i tend to ask all the weird questions. but i promise they're of use..

i'm not sure how many of you have experience in doing so but i thought i'd ask here anyway. so i'm determined to drive from uk to france, it's always been my dream to drive about in europe. a lot of the responsibility of these have been pushed to the renter hence my need for answers.

1) there's this thing apparently, where in france it is compulsory to have a breathalyser, warning triangle and reflective jacket in your car. For you french, you probably already do i'm guessing? but what about those who are not and have driven over to france? i'd like to hear some tips regarding this..

2)The Low Emissions Zone in Paris(i've checked the websites), they require some sort of sticker where you could buy online when heading into paris. I'm doubtful anyone could be helpful but since i'm driving a rental, i wouldn't know the information regarding the vehicle to be able to apply in advance until i reach the UK. i know they ship to you, but i've got no idea how that works as well. i'm doubtful it'll be within a certain time while i'm in london.

With that said, i don't recall seeing my vehicles with this last year in september while i was there..

They will make you buy one at the checkpoint if they see you do not have one for about 3 times the price that you can get one here.
Yes, they do check.

Is there an easier/ faster way to get to Ireland than take the ferry from Cherbourg to Rosslare?.. Dover => London => Manchester or Liverpool => Dublin seems like it would take a lot longer (especially without a car)...

And no: flying's not an option.

I know that the Guinness is supposed to be amazing at the St Jame's Gate, but that is major dedication.....

I'd catch the train to Brussels Zuidstation / Gare du Midi, then catch the Eurostar over to London. This would arrive into St Pancras station, I think that it's a four hour journey.

From St Pancras you can either catch the Underground (one stop) or walk to Euston (about half a kilometre), then catch the train to Holyhead, which will take about another four hours. From there it'd be the ferry across the Irish Sea to Dublin, which Google Maps says is another four hours.

Alternative you could take the ferry from the Hoek van Holland to Harwich, which I've used a few times. It's easier to do it overnight than during the day as it's a boring trip. There's a railway station at the terminal, and you can get to London in about an hour and a half, but you'll need to get from Liverpool Street to Euston, which is less convenient than from St Pancras.

Question for you iphone tech nerds: I now have an iphone 7 but for some reason there are 2 apps showing up in my apps store that need updating that won't update. They are the Clips app and the Apple Store app. Tapping the 'update' button yields nothing. Any ideas how to fix this?

Close all apps. Power off phone. Power up phone and try to update. Had sam on my 7 which cleared all but apple store. Had to take it in for that one.

Hmmm. Still not working. Not the biggest deal but kind of annoying staring at those two updates showing up in my app store app

Ok, got it to work now. It wouldn't update from the app store, so I tapped on the icon that shows up on my phone and updated it that way
