I really like reminders to check in.

I live in Southeast Texas where the guv doesn’t believe contact tracking is useful and I haven’t found any apps for contact
tracking in my area. Still downloaded & got two nearby relatives whom I see from time to time to download it. None of us have been
tested but have reasons to stay alert and saf

Great app - except the nagging/

I love the app and what it does… But I really really really wish it would just stop asking me to create and join pods! How many
times do I have to say no? No means no.

Great app inconsistent updates

I love the general app and the idea it represents...
It’s easy to use
It’s useful and a benefit to society at large
But updates are sketchy and inconsistent
Such as the most recent... now my daily checkin won’t work ... the app won’t accept ‘good’ as a selection...
That wasn’t broken prior to the m

Update not helpful.

After the update, the landing screen is always on “Pods.” The button to the daily check in should be on the landing screen.
Like someone else said, keep this as simple and as easy to use as possible. It’s already a bit much for people to have to
remember to check in everyday.

'I totally agree with the reviewer above. I don’t believe ppl are going to actually state rather their outcome is positive or
even negative. It’s certainly a new way of indicating and exposing to others for obvious safety reasons.'

'Good but with a glitch'

'When this app is working right, it asks you every day how you are feeling. If you are feeling unwell, it prompts you to check off
your symptoms, then brings up options for testing.\n\nA couple of times over the several months I have had the app, it has
neglected to ask me every day, has stacked up

'Possible error?'

'My roommate and I both have the app. He tested positive and submitted his results. Being that we’re quarantined together, he is
the 1 and only Bluetooth contact I get each day. However my app still says I’ve have 0 potential exposure? Not sure if it’s an
error or because we live together.'

'Great idea to help with contact tracing'

'I notice someone said it doesn\'t work when your phone is asleep. Of course not, But it WILL be on as soon as you open it back up
for the day, which will let you know if you were in contact with anyone with Covid. It’s a great idea to have this app, and on,
until this virus is completely under co

'Works well just need to keep it running'

'Well designed and ties into Citizen. Without 80% of the population using it you can’t know you haven’t come in contact with
Covid but if someone is infected and has the app you will be notified which is better then nothing.'

'Looks like some people didn’t realize you need to have the app’s tab open all the time for it to trace. If you leave it will
disable. I do think that this should be more clear, because at first I was also confused as to why it would keep disabling.'

'Simple and straightforward'

'This app does exactly what the framework Apple and Google created is supposed to do: Keep track of other phones you’ve been
near, and if one of them reported that they’ve tested positive for COVID-19, you’ll be notified that you should be tested,
too. As far as I can see, it’s the only gene

i’ve had this app for a while now and it used to work well. recently, the “contact tracing center” hasn't updated at all and
has been stuck in dec 12 even though i’ve kept the app and the open all day. i really wish that it would update constantly like
it did before. also i would suggest having the

"It looks like you no longer want to do checkins"

This isn't true. My issue is that the app doesn't like to respond to input. I got frustrated and stopped using the app since it
always seemed unresponsive.

Unresponsive at times

Often, when I press on the check in buttons for the day there is no response.

Needs a better/more seamless way of taking in screenshots/evidence of tests rather than texting them to a separate number.

I know you're supposed to keep the app open and all times, but the app itself sometimes resets and suddenly you have a "1 day
check-in streak" vs weeks of rigorously checking in. It's also a really user-unfriendly interface, with no apparent link to user
support. Frustrating, especially with what

Keep it simple!

I had a negative test result, and I wanted to update the app with that information. It wanted me to take a selfie of me holding
the test results and also a government ID to prove it. No one is going to do all that, especially with a negative test. Maybe not
with a positive one either. Another time I
