I figure we should start a thread of all the creative things that you guys are doing with your NFC tags. You should list what you are using them for and what apps you are using to make them work.

I made a tag for use with Tasker profile to punch in and out of work, then it adds it to my google calendar when I punch out. Better than my previous solution: post-its.

there are ir auto door locks where you can open your door with a ir remote like a car remote... so what you do is you get a wifi to ir griffin box and you setup a nfc tag outside of your house and there you go lol...

I've used NFC Tag Launcher to turn the POS Verizon car dock into something better: Launch Car Home, disable wifi, enable bluetooth, adjust ring, notification, and media volumes, and then to play a clip of Jim Gaffigan screaming "BAAAACOOOON!" to let me know everything has been set. I've still got a handful tags, so I'm looking forward to finding something new with them.

Is there a way to have a tag be a toggle? I'd like my nightstand tag to put my phone into night mode when i tap it at night, and then put it back into day mode when I tap it a second time in the morning.
