About this app

The COVIDaware MN exposure notification system helps slow the spread of COVID-19. With this system, your phone gets notified when you may have been exposed to COVID-19. Exposure notification uses privacy-preserving technology developed by Apple and Google. It exchanges anonymous Bluetooth keys with other phones when they are within 6 feet of each other for more than 15 minutes. If another user reports a positive COVID-19 test, the phones they exchanged keys with are anonymously notified. This lets Minnesotans know when they should take extra care and get tested. Nobody ever knows your location or identity, and no information on the use of exposure notification can be traced back to you. Full details at https://covidawaremn.com

This app is a great idea, however, it is not flexible enough to be practical. I did the setup when I got the app. I then turned off my Bluetooth and location. I don't need them on in the house. Went for a walk today, so I turned on mobile data, GPS, and bluetoothand thought the app was working. Nope. You have to redo setup every time you turn off those services. Makes the app useless.

Seems like a great idea, but It sends a push notification everytime it checks to see if your exposed, without any way of changing it to only alert if potentially exposed. It just went off at 4am and all it was doing was checking, which isn't cool. Also, you actually have to add your test results. I've been around several people who tested positive and the app said nothing. Maybe the app should be required for covid tests, and the results should be sent through it so the app actually works.

Edit: the below issue has been addressed. Much better now! Old review: "Like the app, easy to use, pleasant interface. However, I was exposed about a month ago. It alerted me correctly, but it never cleared/updated the exposure notice. It says "Possible exposure 7-14 days ago". So after your first possible exposure, you'll be tempted to ignore it. It would be more effective if it either said "Possible exposure between "11/14 and 11/21" or simply added a timestamp to each exposure notification."
