Part of smart quarantine
Ministerstvo zdravotnictví České republiky
Protect yourself, protect others. eRouska remembers other eRouska apps you have met. When a user is infected, he/she can easily and anonymously notify others about the risk of infection.
eRouska is the official exposure notification app of Czech Republic, developed by the Ministry of Health in collaboration with NAKIT (National Agency for Information and Communication Technology). In the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic, the app aims to notify users, who are at risk of carrying the virus. Based on the history of exposure to other potentially contagious users, the app gives instructions, how to proceed to minimize spread of the epidemic. However, the app is not a medical device and is certainly not a substitute for a doctor.
The app is based on Bluetooth Low Energy technology, which is designed to be especially energy-efficient, and it doesn’t collect any geolocation data, including GPS data. The app is developed and released in full compliance with Exposure Notification API Policy requirements, fully GDPR compliant and doesn't collect and directly process any personal data - any data that would identify the user or his mobile device, such as their name, address or telephone number. eRouska is able to determine that contact has taken place between two users without knowing who those users are and where the contact occurred.
The app is a part of Czech Smart Quarantine concept and a valuable tool in the fight against COVID-19 epidemic. Every single user increases its overall effectiveness. It is strongly recommended to install the app and encourage others to do likewise.
The eRouška app’s contribution to the fight against the pandemic is over. Thank you for being part of a network of 1.7 million people. You helped to protect other other people by sending out more than 400,000 notifications about possible risk contacts with infected people. Exposure notification will be switched off and your phone will not continue to search for contacts. eRouška will be inactive, will notify you in case of future changes.
Ratings and Reviews
Battery drainer but the new version works well
The new version is definitely miles ahead of the old one, give it another shot after previous bad experience. That said, my battery life has gone significantly shorter since turning this on, I’m not a heavy phone user but my battery dies within 14 hours every day and the app is constantly on top of the battery consumption stats - it eats battery like potato salad during Christmas time.
Developer Response ,
Version 2.x has improved battery consumption. If you have questions, please reach out to my colleagues at email@example.com
Good in theory, terrible in practice
It is a good idea theoretically, but it just doesn’t work in the real world. Very poorly executed with unrealistic expectations of how users use their phones, completely falls short on the UX.
Maybe that’s because of platform limitations, vendor restrictions or just poor design, but it makes the app pretty much useless in its current form. I know Apple is very restrictive in what it allows devs to access (and when and how), but I can’t give a good rating just because Apple is, well... Apple.
Maybe focusing so much on privacy and refusing to use geolocation wasn’t such a good idea. This day and age, there’s no privacy anyway.
Developer Response ,
Please wait for version 2.0 that is coming to the shop in first half of the September.
Take ownership and do your part!
Version 2.0 has improved a lot. You can always delete the app from your device if you don’t like it. Easy to install, easy to use. It’s about time to make your own contribution to the greater problem (and hold our country reps accountable later).
