So, having throughly ballsed up our own attempt to develop an app as part of our world beating contacting tracing system, we are finally implementing a technology that has been in use in multiple countries since May.

I would once again like to commend the Conservative government on their truly spectacular track record of ineptitude.

Just wondering, how many other countries have these apps, and are they an integral part of their contact tracing schemes?

Here is the list of countries with apps. I'm not sure about the second part, that would require looking into it.

I tried downloading it but it said I need to upgrade iOS so I didn’t bother. If it’s that important it’d work on every device and wouldn’t be another pushy way of the big phone companies forcing their latest updates onto everyone.
