Edit: Someone told me the apps are region locked APK download - CovPass (17.1 MB) APK download - CovPassCheck (16 MB)
APK rehosted directly from the Google Play Store Edit2: Some have issues with name formatting being wrong/cut off Edit3: Cut off names is an issue with Taiwanese certificates and not the apps.
This official German app can store the digital certificate. Has English language.
Hint: the website seems to be quite busy. It often gets stuck at the “please wait” (in mandarin) message. Waiting for minutes didn’t seem to do much… So I simply tried a few times until it worked. The “waiting” time was a few seconds, less than 10.
Now I have managed to download the Certificate. I just need to work out how to get a link to the PDF file on my phone homescreen. Presumably sometime Taiwan will provide an App for local use, just depends on whether the CDC mandate Vaccines at some time as required for admission to some places.
I downloaded that App and scanned my Certificate, which seems to be OK though it has some formatting errors . There is a comment down towards the bottom which says “You can only download German Certificates as PDF Files”. I will keep the app on my phone though, it does display the right details, and I have the TW Certificate on the phone as well, and will also get myself a printed copy. Of course a Booster shot will require an updated certificate too.
EDIT - found a better one - Swiss and not geo-restricted - named COVID Certificate.
Did this work for you? I could scan it all right, but the name shows up garbled. Like… if my name was “Lastname Firstname Middlename” it shows up as “astname Firstname Mi L” in the main screen, and as “L, astname Firstname Middlename” in the certificate detail view. The standardized name is completely ok.
Yes, seems it grabs the name rather differently, there is a “-” before my name and a space between 1st and second letters of my surname, else it shows OK. For my partner, who is Taiwanese, it shows the Chinese Name only.
So we wait until Taiwan produces its own App, which hopefully caters for the a-z alphabet as well as Chinese, no doubt why some others are country restricted. Meanwhile, just have the PDF handy and show it if asked.
