You need a one-time key to let people know they've been exposed ....... ENTER YOUR ONE TIME KEY "

Downloaded. So basically if you're infected you get a one-time key to enter into this App, voluntarily and others who has this App will get a Alert notifying you if you are near this individual who entered his/her one-time key...voluntarily.

iOS needs to be 13.5 or higher. That means that anyone with an older iphone will not be able to use this app. Who most likely will have an older cell phone... your high risk groups: low income and seniors. What's the point if you can't track people who are most vulnerable?

It's not going to be all that useful if the majority of people don't install the app, huh?

I had the virus back in late March/early April, so there's not much this app can do for me (or, through me, for anyone else).
