I give up. The designers meant well and I believe the user interface I well designed. But the technical problems make this app unusable. NFC reader works fine the first time to change the transport PIN to the 6 digit personal PIN but already the next attempt to see what data is stored on the card reliably fails. I spent 20 minutes turning and flipping the card (no case). 9/10 times, I get no reaction. If I'm lucky, I get stuck in the "weak signal loop". Sorry devs, but this ain't working.

It worked fine before this "UI refresh"! Now I cannot even set my new pin or get the Ausweisapp desktop client to pair with this mobile version. I am using an somewhat older (slower) Android phone with Android 12. (Fairphone 3) The NFC chip works, the tests in the app are all green. Yet I cannot get a stable reading of my eID card. It seems that the app process times out too fast and the error handling is incorrect. The app should try again to read from NFC instead of throwing the error.

Can't use the app with a non-German passport or ID, which makes it pretty useless for anyone not German. Only available if you're paying the €37 ausländertax and buy a eID-card which is free/included for germans. Pretty poor situation, I'm waiting for the app to be free to use for EU citizens. Please update

The ID card app supports cards that comply with TR-03124 and the specifications referenced there. Currently these are the identity card, the electronic residence permit and the Union citizen card.
