Samsung TecTile is an app which lets you read & write NFC tags (TecTiles). You can create TecTiles to change settings on your phone, launch applications, check-in to places, update social status, or even make phone calls or send text messages automatically. Once you create a TecTile using the TecTile app, place the Tile in a convenient place, then tap your phone to the TecTile to perform the action stored in the TecTile.

They work great and very easy set up.
AmazonJunkie
It lets you customize much more than the Samsung app and it also let's you tag NFC even in airplane mode (in the settings you can toggle this).

These TecTiles do not work with the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.

I received my Samsung TecTile Tags yesterday and they work well with my new Galaxy S3, even though I leave the S3 in its protective case. The sales site seems a bit coy, but you receive FIVE of these fingerprint-sized self-sticking TecTiles.

Reading over previous comments, I ignored Samsung's app and downloaded the free "NFC Task Launcher" into my phone.

Programming with the NFC Task Launcher is a no-brainer. The first thing I did was program one TecTile to turn off WiFi and turn on Bluetooth. Then I stuck it in my car's phone mount so my phone automatically syncs for hands-free operation. Then I programmed another TecTile to do just the opposite: turn off Bluetooth and turn on WiFi when I get home.

The TecTiles are erasable and you can program multiple commands into a single tile. I'm still dreaming up cool stuff to avoid all that laborious button pushing--snort!

UPDATE: I programmed a third "car" TecTile to turn off WiFi, turn on Bluetooth, boost screen brightness to 80% and turn on Navigation. All on ONE tile--neat!
Then I programmed another TecTile to shut all this stuff down when I exit the car. Fun stuff, and somewhat useful.

UPDATE 2: The one drawback to using NFC tags is that your device has to be on and active, and not just on the lock screen. You can shut your phone down afterwards, but it takes some of the fun out of the process.

I upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (an NFC-capable device) the same week that Samsung announced TecTiles, so I was excited to give them a try. As the video from Samsung and many reviewers suggested, I was most looking forward to sticking one in my office, my car and on my nightstand to quickly apply a batch of settings.

The underlying technology of the TecTiles works great - any time my phone is powered-on and unlocked, I can wave it over a TecTile tag and it reads reliably. The shortcoming of this product is on the software side - specifically, the TecTiles app that Samsung provides to accompany the physical tags. While the app does allow you to adjust phone settings, the useful options are limited. You can turn individual peripherals (such as WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.) on and off, set the ringer volume, and set an alarm, among other less-interesting settings. The app also features a "toggle" setting for turning things on and off; it hasn't worked for me, defaulting to turning the associated peripheral to the "on" state every time.

More importantly, while the app provides a variety of actions your phone can take after scanning a TecTile, they are grouped into mutually-exclusive categories. There doesn't appear to be a way to program actions from more than one category into a single TecTile. For example, I prefer the standard alarm clock to the one bundled into the TecTiles app, so I'd like to set my nightstand tag to set my ringer volume to vibrate and launch the standard Android alarm clock app. Unfortunately, since the settings and the "launch any app" actions are in different categories, I can't program a single tag to perform them both.

Overall, the TecTiles product has a lot of potential, but the accompanying Samsung app is a letdown in terms of capability.

This is a great product and excellent use of the NFC capabilities that are in some phones. I was getting tired of always changing the settings on my phone (Samsung Galaxy Nexus) depending on where I was at. I would have the ringer up when I was in my car and then when I got to work, sometimes I would forget to turn it off only to have it ring loudly in my very quiet office building. Then when I left work I would forget to turn the volume up again and would miss a lot of calls.

Once I read about these little stickers and what you could do with them I was excited to try them out. I bought the TecTiles and downloaded the required app (which is free), and began programming the TechTiles right away. It could not be easier. The app is really easy to use and it gives you a good selection of options to work with.

Some of the options include...
-Ringer volume
-Music volume
-Bluetooth on/off
-Alarm set
-Screen brightness
-WiFi on/off and Join a WiFi Network
-Launch an App
-Show a message
-Make a phone call
-Send a text
-Share a contact
-Open a web page
-Show a address or location
-Social media Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn

These can be used for so many things. Like I mentioned, I use them for changing my settings on my phone. I have one at home, in my car, and in my office. My home TecTile turns my WiFi on, ringer volume up, BT off, and screen brightness to medium. The TecTile in my car turns WiFi off, ringer volume up, BT on, music volume up, and screen brightness to auto. My work one turns my phone to vibrate and WiFi and BT off. It couldn't be easier. Now my settings are where I want them all the time without having to change each option in all the menus/widgets.

So, I am very happy with my very affordable tiles on my Galaxy S II, Lumia 920 and my darling HTC One. I get a new Galaxy S 4 and boom! "Tile not supported". Turns out that Samsung made changes on the chipset for the S4 and it cannot handle "older" type tiles, such as these TecTiles. They say TecTiles2 are coming.

I hope Amazon allows URLs:
[...]
[...]

etc etc.

So, do not buy this tiles if a Galaxy S 4 is on your radar. Otherwise, they work really well, and compatible with all my other phones: Lumia 920, Galaxy S II (I assume III too) and HTC One. These tiles are great value and work well but are becoming obsolete.

Warned.
