  • Feel safer but battery drains Jan 1, 2021

    By Beni63
    I feel safer but since installing my battery drains quickly, too quickly. My battery easily used to last all day but now it only lasts half a day. Will probably uninstall.
  • Looks good like other countries Dec 1, 2020

    I have experience using one other COVID app for a different country, and this seems the same - a reliable way to trace contacts without sharing location. Please roll this out and skip the pilot program. It’s working in much bigger areas.
  • Secure, and much needed Nov 15, 2020

    If you believe contact tracing can help contain COVID-19 (and it can), trust this privacy focused app over an overworked state employee to keep track of your fully-anonymized close contacts. The science and the public health benefits are sound, no matter what your crazy uncle says.

    Now the DOH has got to include the entire state. They had to start somewhere and Lanai made sense but we need it statewide as soon as possible Congrats to DOH for getting it started as overwhelmed as it is.

    Such an important tool to help our economy reopen safely and keep kamaʻāina safe. Look forward to being alerted if I was near someone that tests positive. Love that it keeps everyone anonymous and respects privacy. Mahalo for launching.
  • Please open this to all of Hawaii Dec 21, 2020

    By Pueo77
    This is a much needed app for more than just the pilot areas in Hawaii. Please start having people use this statewide. This would be helpful everywhere.

    I’ve been waiting for Covid tracking to become available to us locally.

    Very easy to use, doesn't require any personal info. It does require bluetooth but it's anonymous and you can keep it off at home and just use it when connecting to wireless headphones/remember to turn it back on when you go out. Only criticism is it's only in english and spanish, needs more languages. You shouldn't have to know english to be safe and keep others safe. It's just accessibility.
  • Roll it out to the entire state Nov 20, 2020

    Don’t delay in rolling this out to the entire state. We needed this months ago.

    Asinine that a government is mandating a third-party program that tracks health data. Irresponsible and ineffective. This demonstrates a clear lack of understanding of viral transmission.

    Can't get it on my phone, or I don't know I have it. It's difficult being old. Is there an icon?
  • Feb 7, 2021

    By Harry Walker
    This app shares the weakness of all of these apps in that it doesn't warn me of shorter exposures rather only if I've been exposed for 15 minutes. Plus it doesn't tell me where the hotspot areas are so I have no way of knowing where or when I should avoid certain places. A minor but annoying point was that this app interfered with the playing of Bluetooth in my car.
  • Hawaii DOH doesn’t Follow CDC recommendations Jul 18, 2021

    By OrlandoMomma
    If a person is vaccinated, why do they need to wear a mask indoors? Does the vaccine not work? If the CDC states that social distancing and indoor masks are unnecessary, why does Hawaii DOH ignore them? What is the point of closing a restaurant 2 hours early, or spacing tables out, if everyone is vaccinated? It’s like the anti-vaxxers, it makes no sense.

    Doesn't work. My partner and I kept bluetooth on always. When he got COVID he reported it to the app with the code and I never got notified from the app, despite the fact that we live together.

    Uses the proper decentralized protocol as well.

    By Alvin Toda
    I have used the app for about one week now. And there has been no contact warning. Was just wondering if it is still working. I just checked the number of installs and it's more than 10 thousand. That means that less than one of us gets positive each day. Its unlikely that we have had any contact in say the last week. No news is good news.

    Easy, easy, easy. The app installed in seconds. There is NO setup. It doesn't ask for any input at all. You don't need a username, password, or email address. Just open the app, read the screens, and press the button to enable notifications. The whole process takes about 15 seconds, and then you never have to open the app again unless you receive notification that you may have been exposed to COVID-19.

    Nice concept but only 100,000 people have the app and there are 1.45 million (2020) people in hawaii so it is very unlikly you will get an alert.

    This app has a bug in it. On a moto 6 it grabs the Bluetooth and won't release it. So you have to reboot your phone to connect to your car's hands free system. It should also allow you to adjust exposure time. 15 mins is way too long given the higher contagion strain.

  • Drains Battery!!! Pls fix it! Feb 9, 2021

    This app drained my iPhone battery significantly. I had to uninstall the app because my phone kept shutting off due to low battery power.

    This is useless, takes up space and was never used when I flew into Hawaii.
