@o0karen0o Thank you for bringing this up. I think the increasing number of services offered only to people who agree to install random apps is a big issue. I recently visited a city where a lot of people are using rented electric scooters (and it could have been helpful to use one for me too), but all these services seem to require apps, although just a web browser (or even sms, like with trams in some countries) should have been perfectly fine.
