About this app

Re-use/recycle write protected NFC Tags such as hotel key-cards, access badges, price tags, lift cards, key fobs etc...
You can use this app to associate multiple functions (e.g. Wlan OFF, Bluetooth ON, Mobile Data TOGGLE, start navigation,run Tasker task, start any installed app, use media buttons, call a phone number, add a timestamp, calendar entry, add Text-to-Speech and much more!) to a NFC (near field communication) tag via an app internal database. You can even add tag cycles and let your tag run different activities per scan. So ReTag is the perfect NFC automation tool for you ;-).

(Works with ANY android supported tag = re-writable AND write protected!)

With NFC ReTag you don´t have to write anything on the tag (-> uses the tag ID, great for small tagsizes and write-protected tags!) and NO data is send to the internet. Additional write options (for better dispatching, device independent tags etc.) are also available. Import of activity tags and beaming is also supportet.

*!* NFC enabled device required / NO root required *!*

If you have any issues please do not hesitate to write us an E-mail.

You could combine any activities and add as many activities and cycles as you want per tag. (obviously except for writing activity tags -> depends on tagsize). For best performance and dispatching, write a special NFC ReTag tag (this is NOT an activity tag!).

Full description and changelog: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1477138

An ad supported free version (with limited number of tags) and an unlimited ad-free (PRO) version is available. Please check if this app works on your phone via the FREE version before downloading the PRO version.

Supports any standard android NFC tags (NFC Forum Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4 etc.).

Hints:
Issues with TASKER: Install Tasker BEFORE NFC ReTAG, enable Misc / Allow External Access in Tasker UI, enable Tasker (on/off button), try the Tasker fallback option within NFC ReTag settings!

Some security related NFC Tags (e.g. in passports) change their ID on every read attempt. This app will not work with such tags.

This is very interesting stuff and you have my attention. I'm trying to learn about NFC but the documention with this app is lacking at best and terrible at worst. I just keep trying to get my mind around all of this but I'm in the dark. A comprehensive help section would make it so much more palatible. I like it and I don't mind paying for it but help a guy out and write some instructions.

It's supposed to rewrite NFC Tags but you need to have the app installed to read the new written tags. So it can only be used by the owner of the app and not by other NFC devices
