Yes, I think it helps to share more infos.

Note that in Germany is a large debate about a possible app ongoing,
with news almost daily. If you want a good coverage by folks you know what 
Free Software and privacy is, I can recomment

an FAQ where it say under 10.:

"Singapur, Österreich und Island haben dabei gute Erfahrungen mit quelloffener 
Software, dezentraler Speicherung und der Beschränkung auf die 
Bluetooth-Funktion gemacht"

rough translation
"Singapore, Austria and Island have made good experiences with Free Software,
decentral storage and limitation on bluetooth functionality."
