Important app to know if you've been exposed to Covid so you can isolate and get tested. I am happy that they now support quite a few languages: Spanish, Catalan, Basque, Galician, English, Romanian, Valencian, and French. Unfortunately it forces you to keep Bluetooth and GPS turned on at all times, even though it only uses Bluetooth to determine your proximity to other people's phones. This is true of all of the Android contact tracing apps, it's just how Location Services works in Android. But I normally would prefer to keep my GPS off both to conserve battery and for privacy reasons. There is also an annoying bug (apparently it's a known bug from what I've read in another review) where it is frequently giving me a notification saying it's not working properly. It seems to happen every time I manually turn my screen off (again to conserve battery), even though I was literally just checking to make sure that both Bluetooth and GPS were on and the app was open and it seemed to be working when I turned the screen off. In the other review I read, the developers said (in April/May) that this bug would be fixed in the next update, but I now have the latest version which was updated in July and it still does this.

So far so good, I have had no problems with the app, it has worked from the day I downloaded it. I noticed no difference in battery life. Runs in the background. I check it once a day and luckily I have had no contact in my area with covid. I like the idea of how it helps, and the minimalistic layout works well and anyone can use it.

I installed the app while traveling. Seems to work fine. Doesn't consume much battery. I got no alart but that is as expected as I avoided crowds. I luckly did not need the reporting function, so I cannot review it. One negative point is the inconsistent translation. To switch to English you need to know that this is Inglés (any traveler should know this but an app intended for travelers should be more user-friendly) Also some of the linked web-pages are Spanish.
