    Why not use the Toggle Option?

    Thank you for making the video.

    It helped me understand NFC tags.

    I think I'll buy some and play around!

    Yes, that's exactly what I use them for. I use the "Switch" option. When I get in my car, I turn on GPS, turn up brightness to full, and open Maps. As I leave, I turn off GPS and reset auto brightness.

    Once a tag is programmed, can those operations be turned of while attached to the tag..?

    So from the video you have to unlock the phone to use them? Hmm, not as exciting any more imho. I realize there are many many applications and uses for these, but I would use them mostly for switching on/off wifi and bluetooth and volume settings depending on location, but I can do that pretty easily already with a profiles app.

    I am open to the idea of the tags, will just have to think about how I would personally use them beyond what I described.

    Great video though! Thanks for putting that together!

    I don't have my tags yet but one I would like to make is one that I can tap in my car that sends a message saying "I'm driving" (or something similar). I know you can set up auto-responders but I think you have to remember to turn them on and off. It might be handy to just tap your phone somewhere when you get the message.

    There are a lot of potential problems with this such as it not clearing the message so you keep getting the reminder despite having responded. And, of course, you have to unlock your phone.

    Just an idea. I know we all approach tasks differently.

    If you need to unlock your phone first does that mean I can't use a NFC to enter my password? My firm locks my phone after 5 minutes so the most common task I have is typing in a password. If I could swipe my phone to enter the password, that would be great.

    Default Where to get NFC Tags

    They have a starter pack with a bunch of different tags.

    they also have a NFC Tag Launcher that I use instead of the default. I'm still playing with the settings for using the tags though. The only thing I've done is gotten it to set an alarm. Haven't had time for anything else.

    I also found a NFC Writer, but haven't even installed id.

    You can also buy NFC tags at . Prices are pretty reasonable, about $1 per tag.

    Here is a link to other places you can also buy the tags:

    There are plenty of great thoughts and uses right now. The problem is mainstreaming them. Think about tapping it outside your front door and it unlocks and the lights turn on. Unlocking or starting your car. You could do anything...

    I would think so, it more than likely wouldn't recycle the action until you've removed the device from the field than reintroduced it.

    Perhaps I should have had it launch the Pizza Hut app instead.

    I don't think that's possible (at the moment). This almost sounds like the screen lock would have to be a third party developed app built from the ground up to be used with NFC tags.

    im guessin the tags just have a simple chip with a unique i.d. and youre not actualy programming the tag but tellin the phone what u want it to do when it detects that i.d.?

    with NFC task launcher you can also setup a tag that switches between different profiles. So you can use the same tag to e.g. setup and disable your car settings.

    How did you actually setup the tag to launch android central forums within your browser?
