Technical feedback Make current version cache enabled and offline support Very useful application
A technical feedback to developers: I have already praised the app before. But in current version I noticed the loading time is more than before. Plus when then network in slow I saw more lag and previously loaded data not visible till proper internet comes. So as a mobile app expert myself my suggestion is that revert the changes done on the tech stack which is causing this, either the app is not responsive web which is caching itself for next launch or the app is native and now taking much more time as offline data is not stored, in either case the user experience is effected. Also I noticed the donate now button is missing now. so make the change quickly and do a release.
Overall A great initiative and innovative app by Indian government. Thanks for using tech to contain covid.
Add option to refer someone who needs Attention
Great initiative to connect with wider audiences to analyse the mainstream counts and spot the needed. While the personal self-test is great space for getting right inputs, we may not get the accurate picture as scared individuals may not fill it right of themselves thinking of what will it lead to at “quarantine mode”.
In addition to self-test knowing the app user, you may “also” want to ask an app user for his phone number or some unique details but easily available with app user if they had to say someone else might need help. Like referring someone to you through this app who needs more attention. Especially when the app user knows someone coughing, throwing up temperature or showing signs of this Act or has returned or either of the family members or has seen someone closely without socially distancing themselves : who returned from a foreign country and I want to report it. Government may have these details but in the greater interest of humanity, I don’t want it to be missed for any reason and use all the resources when at hand.
Useful app. Some suggestions
I would like suggest an idea which can be incorporate with this app. Not sure if this is already in it. Idea for contact tracing. Most difficult problem seems to be contact tracing. You can use google nearby api and google maps to broadcast some unique id to nearby mobile and receive their unique id. Block chain can be used here. If a person get infected we will get the complete list of people who were in close contact and probably infected including the known people eg friends,neighbors and unknown people eg on railway, bus station and airport who got infected during the passby with this feature who can be quarantine and avoid further infections. Same feature can be use to notify the people if they are in close proximity of some one infected. Please reach out to me if I can be of any help to develop this feature.
