I've just downloaded it. Let's hope enough people do the same to try and get the virus back under control.

suziewoozie is it possible you need to do a software update on your phone?

I have an iPhone 6 and have successfully downloaded the app.
You probably need to load the latest software update.

Downloaded and working... pretty simple.

I read a while back about some sort of tracking app. which has already been installed on our phones.

I believe it’s accessible under ‘settings’

I presume this new one is different?

PS. I love the Matt cartoon!

Just downloaded it as it will be easier for the person running our upholstery class. I know one of us will be grumpy about it, but I think it's worth doing.

You download it from Apple or Google Play. I tried to do mine yesterday but it wouldn’t. It will now.
As of today by law bars, restaurants and sports clubs have to register for NHS QR, download a QR poster and display it on their premises for people to hold their smart phones against and be recorded as part of test and trace. For those who don’t contact details have to be taken manually and kept for 21 days

Daisymae Thu 24-Sep-20 08:53:56

Yes, I have it. Anything that might help

Alegrias Thu 24-Sep-20 09:02:50

Hi JenniferEccles, this new app doesn't track your location, so it's not related to any tracking apps that might already be on your phone.

Ive done it too. It tells you whether your area is high medium or low risk. Mine is medium.

25Avalon Thu 24-Sep-20 09:28:59

BBC News online has a very good article explaining all about it.

Shropshirelass Thu 24-Sep-20 09:34:00

Yes, I am going to download it thus morning.

Luckygirl Thu 24-Sep-20 09:38:09

Done - quick as a flash. I hope I have no communications whatsoever from it!!

Grannybags Thu 24-Sep-20 09:41:08

Just downloading it now. I hope it helps

Barmeyoldbat Thu 24-Sep-20 09:48:36

Well how is it going to work for me, I don't have a smart phone, just one that makes calls.

Rosalyn69 Thu 24-Sep-20 09:52:00

I’ve downloaded it. It’s easy and seems to work for me.
I see the problem for people without smart phones but do t know the solution.

MTDancer Thu 24-Sep-20 09:54:28

I've downloaded it. Does it need to be kept open?
