Issue with housing.com's google log-in profile

I was using housing.com android app last week to take a look at the rentals in my area. 
I wanted to contact couple of owners. And of course I needed a profile. So I checked out their login page. Google login is supported, so I logged in using my gmail account. Then I tried to update phone no. The app crashed. 
Then I tried same thing using housing. Com website. And as I logged in using Google, the profile page just won't show a phone no field textbox. There was a label and an update button but no place to type the no. 
So I have up using housing.Com and moved onto 99Acres. Here i didn't have any problems.

Broken navigation in Google Maps

I cm across this couple of days back. I was travelling with couple of cousins. And one of them started navigation on his phone. It was a Lollypop phone. The 3D navigation screen won't show. Instead only 2D screen was shown. We thought it might be because of Lollypop. So I started maps on my phone. I have android 6. But my Google maps also did the same thing. 
Then my other cousin started Maps on his phone. This is a lenovo with Android 6. There maps worked fine. So we went through all the settings etc, but could not find any explanation. 
So maps sucks sometimes. At least the new 2D navigation worked alright.

SFOS Update v2.1.3.7 Kymijoki

I had seen this update few days back. Now a whike has passed and no more major breakage was reported, so I decided to go ahead and upgrade. This is mainly an enhancement update.
I updated over commandline since I dont know if and when this will be available by Intex. As usual devel-su, followed by ssu re 2.1.3.7 and version --dup finished the upgrade. It was kind of small at 170MB mentioned on the Jolla Blog.
After upgrade was complete I rebooted the aquafish and its working fine without any major breakage. The one thing I noticed is the UI now is even smoother and responsive. I intend to check out the enhancements one by one. And Im going to see if they have solved the WiFi issue I have been having with Enterprize wifi with MSChapV2 auth. Lets see.
I have been using Aquafish for a while now. And my experience has been great overall. The battery life is great. The smoothness and speed is great. It feels much more value than my other cheap phone - Panasonic T44. But again the extra 2K rupees can always give you a lot more.
By the way I have removed the broken lens cover. Now the photos come out fine, but the Camera module is completely exposed. Going to have to be a bit careful where I thtow the mobile these days.
So thats it for today. Adios!
