I was getting location error for completing the application. Forvthe first application, it took several tries over four hours and finally it recognized the location while I tried it outside while driving. For second application, I was trying for a day with no success. Once again I tried it while driving and it recognized the location. If you have this issue, please go outside and try it while driving around. That what worked for me for two applications. Other than this issue the app is great.

Most of the application is straitforward and works well except for two main elements. First: There should be some method of saving the info you've entered so you don't have to completely start over the 20 times the app freezes. Second: There should be significantly better guidance for, and status of scanning the passport (which took forever 6 times).

Terrible experience! I was able to scan & photograph. App glitches at enter address point. Over 4 hours attempting to enter address, app saying "no internet connection". Tried in 2 different households, deleted & reloaded app 2x. Turned on developer mode of android & installed fake GPS app as suggested by another review- this allowed me to search & get address, but could not move to next page - again no connection mesg. Turned off MS Defender phone protection & was finally able to complete!
