Can't use the app without first updating??
I have blocked app store in my phone, but unlike other apps that auto update, I have to manually update the Atlas app every few days so I can attest and get my covid pass. So I need to change settings every time to unblock my app store etc. just so I can update Atlas...why doesn't it automatically update like other apps, and is it possible to have less frequent cumulative updates? and/or be able to attest even if not updated to the latest version... thanks the app otherwise is great!
Forced Updates, User Feedback Unheeded
I’m currently standing stranded outside of my lab for the 47th time this year because I, once again, had an (biweekly) update force on my app on the way to work and it took forever to load. If MIT can afford the cost of sending the research of every student and faculty member to a grinding halt every single time they add vanity features to the umbrella ATLAS app, then they should have the money to move COVIDPass to a separate app that won’t need to update every three days. Considering there are many, many reviews of this app here that all say basically the same thing, I don’t think they intend to any time soon either.
Developer Response ,
Hi cartoonaddict12345 -
Point taken about the updates! We are really sorry about those - we introduced a bug and only realized it once we pushed out a few updates. The bug unfortunately still exists in 1.7.3, so once we push out the version that fixes it there will be one more forced update.
Really do appreciate the feedback and commit to ending the constant updates.
Best, Atlas Team
Not user friendly
It would be so easy to give users some control over notifications or at least let us know when we are out of compliance so we can fix it, instead of 2 hours before we go out of compliance.
It would also be nice if it would remind you to get tested when you have like 2 hours left in the day to get tested instead of incessantly every day at midnight.
Having to set an alarm to remember to use an app is dumb when an app can have that functionality built in.
Not to mention the travel section doesn't seem to send that info to anyone.
I literally want to move off campus to at least reduce the negative impact this app has on my daily life.
