German PlateFinder / Deutscher Schildfinder Released This Week

Three days ago our latest iPhone app in the “PlateFinder” series appeared in the iPhone App Store. The German PlateFinder (Deutscher Schildfinder in German)┬áis our most aggressive undertaking thus far. Here are a few highlights:

  • If your iOS device’s default language (in Settings) is German, the entire app appears in German. For other languages, the interface defaults to English
  • All 451 of the current location codes that appear on German license plates appear in the app.
  • In order to facilitate the location of a given code, an index appears at the right-hand side of the main view.
  • (Yes, there are plans to add a search bar at the top of the main view, to facilitate searches for specific locations and codes.)
  • Like our other PlateFinder apps, this one is free.
This is our first venture in internationalized apps. Please send suggestions, feedback, complaints and bug reports to
