    For those asking why the app asks for location: on Android 10 and below, Bluetooth access is tied to the location permission. The app does NOT use GPS or WiFi location data.

    Could do without constant reminders to turn on Bluetooth. Neat idea and I have it on when I go out, but I really don't need it beeping at me if I'm not in public.

    I dislike that it requires both Bluetooth and gps be left on all the time. I usually keep both off unless I need them at the moment, and it helps prolong the life of my battery. Keeping both on all the time eats through my battery like wildfire.

    This app told my partner they'd been exposed after a show. We thought it was just a cold as they'd been vaccinated, but we cancelled all our plans for the next 2 weeks. Good job we did, because it turned out to be (thankfully mild) covid, and saved out friends from being exposed.

    Very good idea.easy to under stand, and the stuff I should have been more aware of .the one thing I feel is that was not so easy to find. I just so happens to fined by luck if any thing. So you just might want to figure out a way so that we are all on the same page. Please keep that in mind Thank you all so very much ! This has been a lesson well learned. May god bless us all! Have a nice day!

    Hasn't done anything for me. I would like to keep Bluetooth off because I work in a travel hub and people try to connect to devices via Bluetooth all the time. I am getting all the notifications I don't want and the kind of people that don't care about walking around with COVID don't have this app. I know of a few of them.

    I had this installed for several months in early 2021, and I never got a notif of positive exposure despite activating it while out in public and living in the county with the most cases. Either I'm very lucky, or most other people didn't have it installed or weren't using it properly. Given that I received no notifications from it, and that it also requires simultaneous usage of Bluetooth and GPS to nominally function, I pulled the plug and uninstalled it months ago and haven't looked back.

    This app only works if everyone downloads it and keeps it active. I've been in close contact with several people who have tested positive for covid and have never received an alert. I keep it open and active just in case, but there needs to be more public outreach to make it effective.

    Pointless to say the least. Read the in-app functions. This app only helps your public health authority not you or anyone else. It scans cell phone IDs near you and sends info to public health. This app states that if positive cases are detected near you, you and those around you will not be notified.

    Not Good! Not reliable, my mother tested positive and I have been taking care of her, both me and my wife have this app and not once has this app worked! We we're providing her with meals and her medications and No Notifications. This app really needs WORK!

    Battery killer due to requirement to keep GPS and Bluetooth on ALL the time. Good concept, but unless the app is snooping in your email, not sure how it determines positive civid if someone doesn't self notify

    My app suddenly is telling me the last check was yesterday at 8 am. Usually it check about four times per day. Something seems broken in this app.

    I cannot stand the fact that this app requires Bluetooth to be on, which I don't ever turn on my Bluetooth so i really don't like it. However, i have no choice but to turn on Bluetooth if i want the app to work. Then if i turn off Bluetooth, i get constant notifications that the app is unable to check. It is so annoying that it's making me mad and i am un-installing the app now. I like the idea and wish there's a better option than to use Bluetooth.

    Stupid app. It wants you to keep your blue tooth on all the time, does not track you with GPS only blue tooth. So unless someone else as the blue tooth on then it will see who you come in contact with. I do not like the idea of having my blue tooth on so the app can link to other phones. Why can it not just track us with GPS. Anyway I uninstalled the app. It not only waste my battery trying to scan other phones it is a security risk. Done with this app.

    Tax Dollars at Work This app only accepts county health department positives. With the MILLIONS of people in this state taking tests at home and the consistent backlog and waiting to access county health services who, by the way, seem to have difficulties with math, why would anyone want to prevent someone from notifying others who may be at risk of exposure to COVID-19 infection? What a lark! By installing this app you are providing (who?) with (what?) under the guise of public service?

    It's really annoying how it wants to remind me that I don't have the Bluetooth on every 10 minutes, yeah I know I turned it's off, if I wanted it on I would have left it on. Ultimately I decided to delete this and take my chances with a ventilator

    I don't like the fact that this app installed without much prompting. The installer automatically popped up. I thought it was by Google. Now I have to find out whether this is legitimate, or malware.

    Only works if everyone has it and it is on, kills battery quickly and just like the vaccine, if someone doesn't use the app, your app won't work as well!
