NOTE: Installing TagWriter on a non-NFC enabled phone is enabled now but it does of course not allow you to actually program tags. Anyhow, you can now prepare NFC data sets e.g. on a large screen device and then share them with an NFC enabled handset to actually make use of them. Besides that you can catch a pre-view on what you could do with a handset supporting NFC.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have problems, if you don’t find things you seek for and feel free to contact us if you like things, too. We will continue our efforts to add new features for your benefits and we work hard to provide a feature rich application ahead of other apps available in the market.

Next to the creation and storing of NFC data sets the NFC TagWriter by NXP also allows to automatically launching applications based on the data read from NFC-enabled tags and items containing NFC-enabled electronics.
The following NFC data sets are supported to launch applications:
- Contact (vCard) to import data into the address book (Contacts)
- Bookmarks (URL) to open a given web address
- Plain text to display simple messages directly on the screen
- SMS (SMS URI) to create a new message
- Mail (Mail URI) to create a new mail message

- Bluetooth to pair and connect devices
- WiFi to connect to WiFi Networks
- Geo location to open a given destination- File URI to open a file on the device, including file picker UI
- URI to create any kind of URI, also those not directly supported by the NXP TagWriter
It supports a series of configuration options adapting the application to your own needs and preferences. Don’t miss to have a look into the preferences menu and check what you can explore in the about screen.
The application fully supports the NFC Forum Type 1 Tag, Type 2 Tag, Type 3 Tag as well as Type 4 Tag portfolio. This includes a whole range of NXP and third party NFC-enabled contactless IC products like MIFARE Ultralight, MIFARE Classic, MIFARE DESFire, NTAG 21x, NTAG I2C, ICODE SLI and many others.
We are sorry in case the application might show any functional interruption when using it. Please help us to improve and provide us a so called “crash report” and/or contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. This helps us to detect, analyze and fix possible issues you see when using our application in combination with contactless ICs that have not been verified to work and so may cause problems or unexpected behavior on use.
How you use it:
1. Select the plugin in Locale.
2. Scan a NFC-enabled tag of some kind.
3. Chose actions that should fire when tag is scanned.
Please note that your screen will have to be on for the phone to be able to scan NFC-tags. This is a limit in the Android system and can not, at the moment, be changed.
Please also note that at the moment the plugin can't detect when you remove your phone from a tag.
The plugin reads the Unique Identifier of a NFC-enabled tag. This means that you will not need to write any data to the tag. Instead you can use any NFC-enabled card. Such as commuter cards, access card or whatever you have lying around. These cards can then be linked to trigger any other setting or action that is available from within Locale or Tasker.
One user scenario can be that you place a NFC-tag in your car. Once the tag is scanned it could enable bluetooth and start the navigation app of your choice.
It supports the following standards: Sony SmartTags, MifareClassic, MifareUltralight, ISO14443-4, ISO14443-3A, ISO14443-3B, JIS6319-4, ISO15693.
If you have conflicts with other NFC-applications such as the default Tags-app you can do the following:
If you have a Ice Cream Sandwich phone - System Settings->Apps->ALL->Tags->Disable
If you have a Gingerbread phone you will have to write a unique tag for this plugin. To do this follow this guide http://goo.gl/uZmYv
If you have trouble finding the plugin in Tasker, this is where you should find it. Create a Profile -> State -> Plugin -> Locale NFC Plugin.
If you have any questions or feedback feel free to give me a tweet or send me an e-mail.
The application have been tested on Galaxy Nexus, Samsung GalaxyS2 LTE, Asus Nexus 7 and LG Nexus 4.

Have you ever noticed that some chargers charge your phone faster than others? Ever wondered which charger is the best? How your mains charger compares to your car charger? I know I have.
This app is designed to give hard numbers to just how effective a charger (and cable) are. No more guessing, no more assuming if the power rating on that cheap imported charger is just for show.
Xperia users, ever wondered what the differences between the EP800 and EP850 are?
I hope to profile as many chargers and cables as I can to come up with the ultimate combination to charge a phone as fast as possible. I will update my web page (www.vexedbadger.com/?page_id=97) with all the results I collate.
After performing a series of tests I have observed that the cable you use us as important as the charger. I got over double the performance using a dedicated charge cable as opposed to a normal USB cable on a HTC B250.
So how does it work?
Its quite simple. Use your phone normally until the battery level is below 20%. Run this app then plug your phone in to charge. Leave it until it has charged and look at the results.
Why 20% to 80%?
Getting the remaining charge in a battery is not as exact as you would like to believe. I have noticed, especially at low levels, that the reading can be as much as 5% out. I have also observed that many phones have a behaviour built into them so that when they reach 90% charge they slow down the charge process to help protect the battery. With this in mind, I am using the relatively stable 20 - 80% range to test how a charger behaves at maximum load.
How is charger power determined.
This is a bit of a guess. I have assumed that the phone being tested has a battery with a capacity if 1750mah (a Sony Xperia S), although as of 2.0 this value is configurable. I then work out how many hours it takes charge from 20 to 80%, and what percent of the battery this is. This gives a pretty accurate number. If your battery is different, the number may not match the charger, but it is still directly comparable to other tests against your phone (I think it will just consistently read high).
While this sounds great, I personally use the a car dock app that has a huge "Exit Car Mode" button on it, and Android puts an item in my notification bar allowing me to disable Car Mode easily.
See my other apps for the infinitely more useful Car Mode Off, and see the web site for ways to use this app.
Xperia Desk Clock launches the Sony app directly.
NOTE: This only works for the Sony Xperia S using the factory ICS ROM. (thanks gibbylinks)
I plan to use this in 2 ways, either through LiveWare to launch it when a charger is connected, or via a SmartTag (see my other apps for making these)
Oh, if you dont have an Xperia S, this will not work for you.
Oh, and just for clarity, I didn't write the clock, only the ability to directly launch the clock. Credit for that goes 100% to SONY
Also note, this only works on Sony Xperia S phones. Please don't leave a 1 star review if it doesn't work on you SK17i (SX Mini Pro). You know who you are :)
That also applies to the Samsung S3, Mr Frenchman : )
It is recommended that this is used in conjunction with something like Sony Xperia SmartTags and a good Car Home app like Car Dock v3 or the default Google one (assuming your phone supports it).
See my other apps for the slightly less useful Car Mode Off, and see the web site for ways to use this app.
With Bin Buddy you can stick an NFC sticker to each bin and encode it with recurring rules. Now, simply wave your phone over your bin and Bin Buddy will tell you when it is due for collection, it can even read out how many days until you need to put it out.
Sure, you could achieve this with repeating calendar entries, but you have a £500 phone in your pocket, why not use it (and confuse your neighbours)?
Usage is simple. Open the app, select the start date (this could be the last date that the bin was collected) and pick how many days days there are between collections. Next pick how many days before hand you want to be warned. If you scan a bin more than this number of days away from collection you will get no notification. Finally, pick how you would like to be notified. A simple popup, a noise, have your phone talk to you or a combination of them all. Hit Write Tag and encode this data to your bin.
To read the tag, simply wave your phone (unlocked but in any app) over the NFC tag and marvel at the results.
All data is stored on the sticker so why not buy everyone in your household an NFC enabled android phone so they can tell when the bins need taking out?
The use of this app goes beyond bins. It can be applied to any object that requires interaction on a regular interval. I use it on some meds that I need to take every 4 days. I plan to use it on my car to tell me when it needs servicing and when I need to check the tyres.
If you can think of any cool uses, leave them in a review below.
It is recommended that this is used in conjunction with something like Sony Xperia SmartTags.
Note that there is no corresponding UnMute Media. This can be achieved much more conveniently by using the hardware volume buttons.
See my other apps for the excellent Car Mode On and the slightly less useful Car Mode Off, and see the web site for ways to use this app.
