Inria, which manages the project, explains that "final adjustments" were needed to cope with a "massive influx of potential applications".

It is finally around 16 hours Stopcovid has made its appearance in the app store Google Play. The holders of iPhone have had to wait 19 hours.

An application Spanish top downloads

The delay has resulted in a lot of sarcastic comments on Twitter. It has also led to an application of the government of Catalonia, Stop Covid 19 CAT, get head downloads in France on Tuesday on the application store of Apple, in front of Zoom, TikTok and WhatsApp, according to a ranking prepared by the specialized firm AppAnnie. It was likely to be internet users by confusing the two applications.

StopCovid must allow its users to be warned if they have crossed recently, less than a meter, and for more than 15 minutes, another user who is found to be contaminated by the coronavirus responsible for the Covid-19. The application has been developed under the direction of the institute for research in computer science French Inria with the assistance of developers from private companies such as Orange and Capgemini. It is built on an architecture different from the platform tracing of contacts proposed by Google and Apple, and therefore has not enjoyed the cooperation of the two american giants.
