Ratings and Reviews
Problem with app
This app not easy to set up. Changed system since I first downloaded it. Now can’t set it up. We have vac cards but I can’t figure out how to upload. Don’t have paper wallet.
The experience is quite seemless
The experience is quite seemless, no login required, look like the app use phone nunber as login. Data synchronization is OK. Some slowness during the first few days and then it becomes very fast
Developer Response ,
Hello. Specifically, what problem have you encountered so that the Center can help you. Also to learn more information or get the fastest support, please inbox the page https://www.facebook.com/TTCNCovid19QG
Non-intuitive and constantly crashes. Poor instructions are difficult to follow. US phone numbers not acceptable in the app’s format field. Error messages displayed when attempting to upload scanned or photographed documents. Discouraging and disappointing for a mandatory requirement for entry into a lovely country.
