The app is named Ankommen and means Arrive, with the official website describing this product as "The guide for your first weeks in Germany." Set to be an all encompassing information application, this new product offers asylum seekers information on German customs and values, a simple language course, work and study information plus a help for an asylum seeker application, as explained by Gizmodo.

Developed by numerous government departments and Bayerischer Rundfunk, a radio and TV business, this app will also feature updates in order to keep newcomers informed on policy changes and other important pieces of information.

Ankommen is currently on Android only with an iOS version said to come soon.
