★★☆☆☆ Minimal functionality once again 

Having to use a Windows phone for my job, it is unfortunate to see that once again the Windows Phone OS is being left behind. Is the  government trying to show us that only those who can afford the best and the brightest are allowed to be safe? This seems to be the message sent. I don’t want to catch the virus, I do want to keep people safe. But I can’t fork out lots of money to do so. Sorry central government, it’s a yes from me, but a no from you.

★☆☆☆☆ It’s just spying without the title 

Yes I don’t want to catch the virus, but having a mandatory app on my phone to track where I go all day? No thank you. I don’t want the government knowing where I go all day every day, checking on my shopping, my friends. I don’t want them to start targeting advertisements at me. I can’t believe people don’t see the light, this Coronavirus is all a conspiracy to make us take their vaccinations and have their people spying on us all day. Big brother won’t be watching me.This app uses the internet too, don’t be fooled! They want you to use their 5G with this app to make it spread more!! See sense!

★★★★★ A fantastic idea 

As an NHS worker, Track and Trace app is a fantastic idea. We have to be based on the science, and the science shows this is the most effective method of dealing with the virus. I have been on a COVID ward, and if by using this app I can protect the people around me and stop them from getting there, I will. With a range of functionality, a sleek and smooth design, this app has the potential to save lives by just living your day to day life.
