Just wanted to start a thread to see if anyone can think of some interesting places to utilize the Samsung TecTiles. I have thought of a few places, but would be interested in hearing where everyone else uses them.

By the home entrance: Toggle Wi-Fi and brightness

By the bathroom sink/shower: Launch Google Music

Nightstand: Turn on blocking mode

By the toilet: Launch favorite reading/video website

Coffee Table: launch GoogleTV remote

Here's what I thought of...
Car? Turn on GPS, disable Wi-Fi, turn on bluetooth and turn on Music.

Work Desk? Turn on Wi-Fi, disable GPS, turn off/on bluetooth depending on your need and Silent Mode.

Are you asking how to program these TecTiles (or other such things)???

well, yes.

Samsung TecTile (US,Canada only)
is the Samsung app. The 1st version was a bit lacking but they have improved it.

there are a bunch of other apps including these:

NFC TagWriter by NXP

this one you can re-purpose other tags:
NFC ReTAG



NFC Task Launcher

You can find these for around $1 for basic tags at places like tagstand.com or tagsfordroid.com. It just depends how aesthetically pleasing you want them. There are many sites that sell tags with equal or better function for less than Samsung.

Its just Samsungs official tags...there are some for cheaper, like other people have said but they are not the official ones. Do they work just as good? Probably, but I never really paid any attention to the other ones.
