    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, NOT GPS information. Again, it’s completely anonymous for those who self-report and to anyone who is later alerted. All of us who use the app provide a benefit to our communities, and to ourselves, as well. It’s not a perfect system. If it betters your chances (or a loved one) by 15%, would you use it? 5%? You betcha.

  • app does NOT detect Covid Nov 13, 2020

    By DebbieLim
    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 drainage on my cell. Make sure to check your Battery in your Settings and see where most of the drainage is coming from. Remember, this is a brand new App and most do not know about it. Let’s just hope most will use it. As for the city offices that spread Covid, noticing that this app was out there for one day or so at that time, they probably did not know about this app yet? Hopefully it was on the news or in the media to warn people? I am trying to stay positive here. The BEST way to stay safe is to WEAR A MASK! Now that is one thing I can complain about. When I am out at the park or driving by a little league game, 99.9% of the people were NOT wearing a mask! That is a shame! Stay safe everyone. We need to stick together and do what is right, because we ALL are going through this.

    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 you've come into contact with, and it doesn't spread any information about who you are to others. Very awesome to know that we can keep ourselves safe during a public health crisis without having to give up our privacy.

    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 effectiveness goes out the window . This app will not track your movements from 3 or 4 or more days ago to tell you that you were in close contact with someone who finally got their result and then decided to go ahead and report through this app.

  • Really good! Dec 3, 2020

    By Zee_alh
    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 whole idea of posting your results is a really smart thing. However, even though the results will most definitely be off by a couple days, results are results and it’ll help all of us stay safe.

    I did the whole background battery app check thing suggested below. This was not the problem. Bottom line. It's time to give up on the ghost. It doesn't work and it's not the battery settings.

    I am giving up on this app. It stops checking. I reload it. It works for a few days and stops. It is partcularly likely to stop checking when I leave home to shop or go to the doctors, exactly when I need it. I do not have a Samsung phone. Battery saving is turned off for this app. I open it daily to keep it active. All other apps work. The fact is that this app simply does not work.

    Has not checked for exposure since Feb 20, 2021. I followed your instructions and my Covid 19 app is still not working. Nothing Exported as well when I clicked export.

    Constantly stops checking . Need to Uninstall and reinstall every few days. edit: that sites instructions are terrible. I tried multiple times to figure it out. And needed to do anything extra to get your app to work still means it's terrible and deserves 1 star. EDIT AGAIN: yeah those instructions aren't exact, but I did it and the app would still stop checking after a couple days. Even if I opened the app every single day. No one should have to change settings for this to work.

  • How it works 101 Nov 13, 2020

    By Ryan from MI
    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 would NOT provide you a notification. Be courteous to others and report positive test results in the app.

  • Hope it works? Nov 12, 2020

    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.

    Used to work but now it hasn't checked for exposure since Feb 13th. It's up to date, I've uninstalled and reinstalled, phone restart, checked permissions. Nothing has worked. I'm uninstalling because it's not worth the waste of space.

    This app is a great idea, but seems that it could be a bit more transparent. I appreciate that the app does not track me in any identifiable way, but I think it would be helpful to have more personalized statistics. Right now, the only thing we know is when the app last checked for exposures. I think it would be helpful to know how many unique IDs were gather over the last day. That way we can determine if the people around us are using the app and that the app is actually gather data fromothers

  • Does not alert Dec 8, 2020

    By Alainahd
    I ended up getting covid and only place I can think of is between 3 places... mainly a grocery store near me.... I went to self report however I did not have a “PIN” from the local health department. I was in the hospital when I found out about being positive. It would be nice to be able to report being positive. I called all 3 places myself and told them I tested positive so the employees are aware of exposure. I did NOT have symptoms. However now I have a stuffy nose that comes and goes, can’t smell, and hardly can taste.

    The app stopped scanning so I redownloaded it and it still doesn't update. Also, not sure how effective it really is since sharing if you've trsted positive for covid is by choice and I'm pretty sure most people in my area haven't even heard about the app and if they have, probably wouldn't choose to share.

    My app hasn't checked for any exposures since Feb 6th. I don't have an update option, and all permissions are granted. Frustrating. - I tried to export and nothing happens on my end. I clicked "export" and I didn't have the option to view or email anything over.

    Data is old and hasn't been updated. I dont trust that this would help keep me safe at ALL ETA: Added star because of the response from the developer, but data is still wrong. Michigan covid deaths specifically. When the average person can get accurate data by using a quick Google search, I would much rather be able to open my app and get all data available as ACCURATELY as possible.
