I believe the Swiss App is supposed to encompass both tests and vaccines, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Prior to yesterday (I think that was the day?), the EU didn't recognize the Swiss app.

Thus if a person wanted to be totally "safe", it was best to take a printout of a PCR test and/or vaccination record in addition to using the app.

You never know when you're going to encounter a border official who enjoys making people's lives difficult.

Edit - Also what Tom says. Not all countries recognize each others' vaccination apps but they all seem to be okay with paper printouts so long as you have what they want. Some countries don't care if you're vaxxed, you still need an antigen or PCR test.
Exactly this - I have a yellow global vaccination record from many years ago, and got this stamped at the vaccine centre

The Swiss Covid app has a digital record of my 2x vaccinations. Would always carry a paper version as a backup
