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.
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.
