Not really working with KitKat. After scanning a tag, there's a popup where I have to choose the app to use the scanned data with and then, there's a "Tag discovered" list, where I have to tap the just scanned tag again to launch it. Very annoying. I'm pretty sure there's missing some NDEF_DISCOVERED intent-filter for it to work with newer Android versions.
Good but It does work well however on DROID dna when I write the task I have to select to run it. When I followed instructions to disable the tags app nfc stopped reading the tag at all. Could just be me but other than that cool. I do agree that other apps I have tried do not have this issue like Nfc task launcher
Has promise but needs sorting out on Kitkat Doesn't allow seamless task invocation on KitKat. I get a "tags" popup asking me to select the app to process the NFC event. If I disable the tags app then just get an error beep and Tasker URL doesn't action the event.
Awesome Works exactly as advertised. People using ratings for feature additions, or to solve a problem are ridiculous. You cannot expect tech support to watch the google play store system to pickup issues. Use support system for each app, and use reviews to review the product. This is an essential add on for tasker imho. Thanks to the devs.
Can be used for barcodes as well. Samsung GS2 w/Jellybean.Downloaded this to try it with reading barcode labels. It works! Instead of an NFC tag, create a QR barcode & scan with your phone. I just used the "free text" option of an online QR barcode generator to be "tasker://task". After it read the barcode I then just tapped the screen to "Open Browser" & it ran my task. The big advantage of being able to use the BCS is that I can generate unlimited free barcodes for those places I don't want to risk losing a NFC tag, for infrequently used tasks & for simple tasks that I don't want to dedicate one of my precious NFC tags. Example: putting barcodes on test fixtures at my work where I can scan a barcode to start a timer to remind me to come back. And since they are paper barcodes taped to the machine, I can make a strip of several for different times. No wasted tags! Woo hoo.
