Very nice plugin for Tasker Does exactly what it advertises to do, and yes it will scan the same nfc tag more then once if you set the repetitive option. Happy I bought this, because this is a real plugin for Tasker. This makes it more flexible than the other (free) apps that only can launch a task in Tasker.
Nice little app This is a nice little app. I'm using it with Tasker to trigger profiles when I'm in the car or at my desk at work. I was a little annoyed by the "Choose action" popup. I had to use the custom tag trick and now it is working perfectly.
Works Well Everything works as expected but took me a bit of time to troubleshoot properly. I would have liked better documentation in description specifically for URL code and repetitive scanning (shouldn't that be a default on feature?). Thanks!
App works well, amazing customer service I had some trouble understanding the app at first-the plugin can only be set in tasker using "State" context, but checking "repetitive scanning" basically sets it to "Event" context. I emailed the developer, he responded within half an hour, with an in-depth explaination of how the app worked, and what the limitations were due to the way Android handles NFC-he even offered me a refund if is wasn't working the way I wanted to. 5 star app, 6 star customer service.
Best way to launch Tasker tasks from NFC I tried using 'Tasker URL Launcher', but it doesn't seem to work on Jelly Bean. And 'NFC ReTag' is powerful, but seems an over-the-top way to launch a Tasker task (as a whole other app + service, it likely consumes more resources than just this Tasker plugin, but this is an assumption on my part). 'Locale NFC Plugin' however, seems the best way to launch Tasker tasks from NFC. You can have a state enabled upon the scan of one tag, and that state will be enabled until another tag is scanned (handy for turning off your keyguard at home). Alternatively, selecting the "Allow repetitive scan" option turns the 'State' into an 'Event' (ie it will start and exit the Tasker profile on the one scan), which means that you can have a task re-run each time you scan that tag. I love it.
Does exactly what it should.. Exactly what I was after, and works a treat. While not exactly obvious, if you want a single task run when the tag is scanned (versus the default behaviour), you need to tick "Allow repetitive scan". It's the one issue (minor, as long as you're aware of it) with an otherwise great app. Also love the fact that the dev includes a way to force tags to trigger this app - which is necessary with the ever increasing number of apps including triggering of actions via NFC.
