Where to get Tags?

If you'd like to see some functionality added feel free to make a request.

The APK linked below is free of the license check of the Market version and is fully functional for 7 days.

For anyone who decides to purchase the app after using the APK attached to the thread - un-install the free version first otherwise the market installation fails.

Here's a few videos I made for a current demo:

Hmm that would be really cool. Embed a tag in my doorframe and set it to enable/disable wifi so I never have to do it by hand lol. Put one it my car steering wheel to turn on BT...you're a genius sir!

What I would be really interested in is an app which allowed users to easily assign a list of actions to certain tags, directly from the application.

I'd certainly help out in the development of the application if anybody else is interested

If this was something people were interested in it would be fairly trivial to write an app with a defined set of options and write the text tags instead of having to compose them by hand.

This would be my question as well. I think this is a cool idea. Definitely need to have an easy to set up user interface to enable tags.

I picked them up for $2-3 each.

I ordered a few from Finland for €1.30 a piece shipped. I also ordered a few from a US company for 2.95 each + shipping. All are 1k tags. Once I get them I'll let you know how they flush out.

Touchtag sells them reasonably cheap but it's a lot of 25 for #15 or $20, I think, but they are out of stock .

Once I get the tags I'll add a main UI for building/writing the text tags. I had assumed constructing them manually and then writing with one of the existing products would be easy enough, but it's pretty trivial to implement a simple text tag writer and accompanying UI.

I overlooked that entirely. I'll add toggle support as well.

I don't have tags to test writes tonight, but if my kids cooperate I'll try to get a UI and the associated logic set up over the next few days. Then when the tags arrive I'll get some video/screenshots up for people to are how it all works.

Ok, toggle support is in. I created a UI to start with tonight for tag building. The known SSIDs and app list aren't populated yet - I'll get to that some time this week. It needs cleaned up a bit as well, but it's a start for now.

It does looks like auto BT pairing isn't part of the API, so that my be out of the feature list. But enabling Wifi Tethering and associating with a known SSID should be no problem.
