Alberta’s contact-tracing app is flawed with bugs

The weekend after its launch, the ABTraceTogether app has been downloaded more than 100,000 times.

But, the iOS version of the app only works when the phone is on, screen unlocked, and the app is running in the foreground. The app is based on an open-source software protocol from Singapore called BlueTrace. ABTraceTogether uses Bluetooth, not GPS.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford said that at a conference call with other premiers, territorial leaders and the federal government he will call for a national plan for contact tracing apps.
