    Great concept. How many users by state? How many users By county? How many users by town? I feel like I'm the only one using this app in my area. I do turn on Bluetooth when I leave my home. *For me the only useful part of this app is the info on stats. I wonder if they advertised this app along with V-SAFE (online app) and others, if more people would even know about this app and download it. That's the only way this app will work is if others know about it and download it.

    Easy to install and set up. Requires someone who is exposed to reach out to their health department and put in a provided code in order to notify others, so there's a reliance on all users doing their part for this to work.

    Up to the minute localized and regional data. Impressive application

    More of a data analysis tool, but useful nonetheless to see what's happening.

    I never had any issues with the app functionality but, it was not useful to me in any way. No alerts or information to help me stay informed or safe. It has not improved my life or proved to be a valuable tool during COVID-19 in any way.

    It's a well designed app and is useful even if only for a convenient way to keep an eye on the charts. Of course the fact that it's opt-in is a limitation, but I really don't understand the complaints on this. People are saying they've never gotten an exposure notification like it's a bad thing. Are you sick with covid-19? If not, then what is the complaint exactly? You want false alarms?

    Could be good if more people used it. Unfortunately for my battery, I can't afford to have Bluetooth on all day so I pretty much can't use this app. Only when plugged I but I can't have it plugged in when I'm public so...

    I have it installed. With such an allegedly important tool that could save life's it really is discouraging that it only relies 9n Bluetooth. Even a ping of data could provide enough location for triangular based location. Uninstalling, scientific based precautions will help. Not on a COB Job cell phone app, and also this is a lesson for the people of NY also. Common sense and caution will benefit not this. C

    500k downloads in a state with 20 mil people. The core purpose of this app is as useless as it gets if less 3 percent of the population have this. And even then, you need Bluetooth on by default.

    The app is really only useful if widely used. Much like the new Excelsior pass, if it's use is not mandated or widely used voluntarily, it is essentially useless.

    Worthless app. does not work. People close to me are now dying from Covid and this worthless app helped no one. It drains battery on bluetooth and that's all it does. I am however fully vaccinated. UNINSTALLED

    The app is a great idea, but it's useless because no one is using it. It should be mandatory. I'll uninstall because it does not work with only 500K installs.

    It's a hog for data bandwidth and I can't find a way to uninstall it now that I've been vaccinated.

    This app is useless and doesn't work. I was positive for covid but it didn't notify my gf who also had the app. None of the Healthcare providers or health departments seem to know about this app.

    Caused 6 other apps to fail and stop working. Uninstalled from phone, but still getting this apps notifications when Bluetooth is disabled. Very disappointed. Not recommended.

    Invasive use of solicitation to user by recommending via notification outside of the app store. I should not be getting push notifications that override my settings for these to be unable to do so. Google and affiliates are invading users privacy by doing so.

    Randomly popped up with a notification even though I'd never had it installed. Basically tricked me into installing based on the assumption that it was trying to warn me of a potential exposure.
