NOTE: THIS APP IS ONLY FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND STAFF. YOU CAN ONLY LOGIN INTO THE APP WITH YOUR UTEXAS EID AND PASSWORD INFORMATION.
Symptom Survey and Symptom History: Log any symptoms that you are (or aren’t) feeling today to help decide if you should come to campus or work remotely.
Campus Access Pass: Are you going to campus today? A Campus Access Pass verifies that you do not have COVID-19 symptoms.
COVID-19 Test Reporting and History: Link your COVID-19 test IDs for proactive community testing to your EID using a QR code reader or enter the test ID manually.
Room Check-In and History: An important part of contact tracing is knowing where a person with COVID-19 has been so that others can be notified of potential contact and spaces can be isolated and disinfected, if necessary. But it can be hard to remember every room you've been in over a two-week period. The app helps you record that information easily.
Anonymous Statistics: You can volunteer to send us anonymous statistics that will be shared in aggregate form with the community in general and with the University to support decision making on how to best protect the campus from a COVID-19 outbreak.
Local COVID-19 Information: Access the latest information, statistics and resources on COVID-19 to stay up to date.
Multilingual support: App is accessible in both English and Spanish.
This version fixes a bug related to version checking and manual updates. Moreover, we disabled the anonymous statistics by default (including bluetooth and location) to help battery life and added a seat location to the room checkin function.
Ratings and Reviews
Really Basic- hopefully will be useful for contact tracing.
Pretty basic application, I hope the room checkin process is pretty robust, I’m curious if this is how the university will do contact tracing or not. If it doesn’t have the ability to send notifications after someone you’ve checked into a room with tests positive, I’m ready to call it useless.
Campus pass feature isn’t really useful, as most people are going to ignore the logs and just hit the okay button at the bottom, and it doesn’t really tell you to get tested if you report symptoms, which I think is an oversight. You shouldn’t get the same big “Survey Complete” text, it should be something like “Go Get Tested” or “Stop. Call UHS” or something.
It’s also really weird to me this required a UTEXAS google account instead of EID authentication, we have our own APIs for direct authentication. Come on UT, let’s use our protocols for crying out loud!
Major Battery Drain
If you’re going to use this app, Do not give it permission to use your location if you want your phone to keep a charge. I could not figure out why my new iPhone pro 12 was suddenly getting absurdly bad battery life. It was dead by lunch with minimal use. I was getting ready to make a warranty claim when I decided to check battery usage in preferences. This app was sucking battery like crazy. It was listed as using 60% of my battery. I deleted it, and battery problems disappeared instantly.
I can’t use the app because it’s demanding me to update. I can’t update because I only have an iOS 12 so the app is basically closed off to me.
