5.0 out of 5 stars Works Perfectly Galaxy S3 / NFC Task Launcher, October 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TagsForDroid 10 NFC Tags + 1 NFC Key Chain + Stickers (MIFARE 1K) (Personal Computers)
Works great, cheaper than Samsung stock NFC tags.

Somewhat larger than a quarter and as thick as a dime, these plastic tags are solid and have just the right feel. The stickers are great and of course you can make your own with the right type of sticker paper and printer for your own customized look.

I didn't realize the keychain was a NFC tag as well so that is pretty cool (I originally thought it was meant to put a tag on it, doing so caused NFC tag confusion!)

Each tag has pretty solid sticky under paper on the back for mounting to walls, desks, car, etc. that will only come off with solid prying - these are not going to just fall off after a bit.

Am using with a Galaxy S3 and the free NFC Task Launcher application.

Turing on/off GPS on most phones requires root. This is not an issue with the tags or the application but inherent in the Android OS itself. This is not a biggy for me since GPS in app activated anyway and does not drain power unless you have a bad behaving application.

A great future enhancement that would get me to buy more of these is offering them in different colors... though I bet the current ones could be painted or color modified in some way and still work.

The 11 tags (10 plastic and 1 keychain) is plenty for most uses - I have at work, in car, at home, at PC and in bed tags.

Now if NFC could be extended to 5 to 10 feet... that would be the ultimate.
