The Karnataka government has also asked people to dowload an app called 'Quarantine Watch' that is available in the Play Store, but not in the Apple Store, which puts iPhone users in a bit of a predicament.

Furthermore, the 17 reviews in the Play Store are not favourable for the app, which is probably in its early stages, with most users saying that they are unable to upload photographs to show that they are under quarantine.
