I do not find relevant the comparison between the levels of adoption of television and radio with the levels of adoption of this application.

We are talking about an imminent risk of losing your life!
Television is a means of communication and entertainment.

There are many applications that have been developed in the midst of the pandemic. I think there is a developer rally.

So in the midst of so much pressure and competition, the real performance and value of these Apps must be evaluated with a broad approach. There is a lot of publicity involved behind all of this.

That’s right but everyone has there own perspective and we can’t change that.
Thanks for you reply.

My pleasure

It s a great initiative as long it is used to serve it's purpose.

As is an government initiative I didn’t think gonna we used for bad things

I feel it is going to help citizens and the developers will be making some cool money for themselves also.

Yes you are right
