Addendum: Apparently the "Windows 10 Creators Update" removed this feature because it had a security vulnerabiliy, which is sad, but I guess Japan had probably moved on from LZH by then.
Honestly is there any combination of descriptors you can use which makes an API less appetising?
This occasionally involves not backflipping, which is upsetting because that's a DPS loss
re: DE Bureaucracy
A little more specificity:
* They do CV on the client to pull the details out of your passport. Whatever CV system the Android app uses struggles heavily with the holograms in UK passports (At least those with the the pre-Brexit design).
* It seems to get confused by the passport not containing an address (I'm pretty sure only DE and JP put addresses in passports!)
* There's a language selector and it ignores it, which is even more annoying than not having one to begin with
Postident, which practically has a monopoly on doing IDV for all sorts of things here, have an Android app that's basically just broken if you're not German.
So like if you want a mobile phone or to have things delivered to a Packstation or a bank account from most providers, you need to get yourself an iDevice (or borrow one from a friend with one), which is kind of amazing
Also, as a consequence of the upgrade we have the "non-advanced" web UI available now if you prefer it
