  1. nice hope they work on my tablet note 10.1

  2. This app has been available nearly a year now and is on the Play Store (US Only). Those in the know can access it outside of the USA, you can use the app with any NFC Tags you don’t need the special (overpriced) Samsung branded ones.

    The app itself is very nice, does everything that the better NFC apps do, and has some Samsung specific actions that other NFC launchers cannot offer.

  3. There is made European version of this app, it’s available via SamsungApps. BTW, it is better, then the US&Canada app.

  4. Note 10.1 doesn’t have NFC dude

  5. yes I know my mistake I think that can be used like accessories…

  6. Not only the price of the tags is important, the memory size also is. For example the Sony Smarttags only have a “memory” size of 46 bytes, not even enough for a decent url or a vCard. The Samsung Tectiles have more than 700 bytes. I’m using these tectiles for a week now but the Samsung app is a bit limited (the same for the european version of the app…if there is any difference at all!!) in the “settings” section. Also don’t install a lot of NFC apps, they sometimes interfere each other (at least the do interfere on my Note 2)
