In response to the review of “useless” this app is better than nothing. Maybe if enough of us sign up it will change the
thinking and would become very effective tool. Let give it a try and encourage other to do the same.

Easy to install. It depends on people to use the app, and to self-report when they know they have been exposed or if they test
positive. It’s anonymous. All the system does is alert others who were close to an exposed person. It uses the short-range
(30 feet) Bluetooth radio in your smartphone,

Really good!

I really like this app! I find it to be very useful and informational. It helps us stay alert and well aware of everything. I feel
like this app has potential to help decrease the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan. This app will allow our community to stay safe. I
recommend this app to everyone. The wh

Easy turn on Bluetooth

1) Install
2)Leave Bluetooth on
When leaving house
3) Forget until needed
a) notify if you get sick
b) get tested if you get notified

It’s so nice that our state finally catches on to creating an app for exposure notifications! Honestly, only nitpick would be to
say that, maybe a lil more work could have gone into the app icon. 😜

Better than a Vaccine!

No need for a vaccine when you have this app downloaded to your phone!

How it works 101

Basically 2 phones have to have the app installed. If one persons tests positive AND reports it in the app AND your phone was
within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes, then your app would provide you a notification.

If the person who tests positive DOES NOT share the results in their app, your app wou

Trace and stop the spread of covid

Glad to see this is available. I think there needs to be an increased campaign so everyone is aware and will make it more
effective. Everyone living and traveling in Michigan should have this app activated to help with the test and trace and eventually
the elimination of covid!!

I like the idea . But the fact that this app relies completely on self reporting and given the delays in reporting test results,
this fall far short of being an effective tool. By the time you actually get your test result, if you’re one of the VERY FEW
people that have downloaded this app , the eff

Hope it works?

Just downloaded three days ago I’ve traveled and run a lot of errands clocked in at least 25 mile radius nothing coming up so
far. Not much as far as information or user maneuverability goes.

Some ignorant reviews here.

The app doesn’t “detect covid”, it only works if the confirmed case person has this installed and also reports it using a
discrete PIN you get with your positive result.

Good app

I like the idea and functionality of this app however I wonder if this will be as affective as this was meant to be unless as many
people as possible can download and use it.I kind of feel like those who don’t care too much about Covid probably it wouldn’t
care to download this app anyway.

Needed it

Its been a long since other states have released similar apps. I have been waiting for this app because it could help notify
people who have been in close contact with someone testing positive such as in the grocery store.

Protects Your Privacy!

The way these contact tracing apps work is actually quite interesting. Somewhat counterintuitively, its able to do its job
effectively without violating your privacy.

It doesn't track your location, it doesn't know your name or anything about you, it doesn't know the identities of the people

The app is awesome!

I’m so happy that this app exists during this time right now. It shows if you have been exposed in the location and time. It is
just really helpful. Please download it! It could save lives!

Why does race matter?

If you go to the stats tab you can select a “demographic layer”. It allows you to select black, hispanic, and native
American. You can’t select any other race; the only other option is Non-White. What does this mean, is the app racist? We’re
all human and want to know how many of us have corona

I’m hoping

I’m hoping this app works better than the few reviews that I’ve read! Anything on the positive side has to be better than
what Trump is doing right now, which is NOTHING

No 8 digit pin

I tested positive for COVID and I never got an 8 digit pin. So how was I supposed to notify others?

Good but not perfect

It’s well designed with the glaring oversight of needing iOS 13.7+, so the highest risk people in my family can’t use it on
their older phones.

app does NOT detect Covid

Hey... This App does NOT detect Covid. The only way you will see ANY notice is IF the person uses this app to warn us. I cannot
give it any “star ratings” because I see nothing or notice any changes in the App. I have it a neutral rating so that I could
post my review.
Battery drainage? I see zero
