Review from A Google User
Disappointed This has so much promise but two of the things I tested failed. 1) Facebook didn't update. Of was just broken. 2) When you program it to go into airplane mode it turns off NFC - and there's no way to turn that back on. But there's no other way to turn off my Verizon that I can find
Good start... needs more features Note that you can only program ONE category of Settings, Call/Text, Location/Web, or Social with each tile. Why the limitation? Also, not being able to turn on GPS is a major miss, as most have noted. The tiles seem to work very well, but the functions should not be so limited. I hope they will improve the app, since the tile itself is just a trigger, and the responses can be expanded with a better app.
Good for phone settings. Lacking Love the profiles and the ability to change phone settings. Very handy for Bluetooth devices. I would like to see people tags like "call spouse" so both of us can use the same tile. I shouldn't have to go through 4 steps to make a call. 1) wake up phone. 2) lock screen off. 3) scan. 4) tap to activate. The documentation never mentioned that you had to have the program installed to read a tile. Google will take over this idea to work with all NFC phones. The app is well-written and what it does, works great.
Works great for it's limited subset of tasks Needs to be able to turn on and off driving mode Needs to be able to use non-stock apps for email/text/etc ie gMail app for email, Google Voice for text Needs an option to read TecTiles without having to unlock phone. Getting my phone out and unlocking it is half the time I need to do all the tasks the TecTile is supposed to do for me. Why bother? Should be an option though for security. This would be a really great app but they need to open it up to do a ton more things. Then I will buy a bajillion of these things and stick them everywhere.
Great start, please add more abilities! I want to give this 5 stars so badly because it works wonderfully. The problem is, it is lacking in available functions. Please add the ability to toggle gps, mobile data, sync etc. It should be able to toggle all phone features if it is to become more than just a fun tech toy. Please add those features Samsung and I'll revise to a 5 star rating. :-) Samsung galaxy s3.
Great utility! Finally can implement manual profile switching, where each stick is placed. One at home office desk, where ringtone and volume is set to full, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned on. One on my nightstand, where bt, Wi-Fi turn off ; the one at work, where ringtone and notifications change to mild, half volume and turns off bt. One at the gym setting a Facebook check-in and firing up sports tracker and going to silent... Only thing to get that last star is a hometown widget. Would love 1x1 or 2x1...
Great but needs a few more features Withholding one star for lack of two features. First you can only toggle music playback not force to play or pause. I unintentionally activate my tile from time to time and it toggles playback to pause. The other feature is the one that is worth the last star. There needs to be a way to change the notification volume. I want to be able to activate my bedtime tile and turn notification volume to 0% as I don't want notifications when I'm sleeping.
