New options not explained properly
Since this app is developed for the sole purpose of helping each section of people in this country. I feel that new options introduced in the app should be shared as pop-up. Today when I opened the app after 3 days I say an alert icon on the top left page of the app. By mistake Some portion got selected in the alert pop up. as I could not view the text properly in my iPhone maybe issue with phone. Now the data is synced and I know that due to lack of knowledge on the app has prevented actual collection of data. Which should be the sole purpose. Again there is no support no to inforun that issue wa done and how it can be negated. I mean to say such a good initiative from government should be more interactive. It will clearly help all and also promoting the app by common people will really help in making aware of the advantage of the app. Atleast we should have chatbot in the app so that the user can interact and provide correct information. Now when we say for sample collected option is selected by user then there need to be more information like date of sample provided. Which lab collected. Etc. this will help in verifying the information also collected from lab itself and information remains constant through out.
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.
