UPM RFID and SimpleNFC launch TapThatTag Android app which helps users select the exact NFC tag they need effortlessly
UPM RFID and SimpleNFC (the company behind CustomerIn) have launched an Android app called TapThatTag that teaches users all about NFC tags. The two active companies in the NFC space have got together and launched a new Android app that allows users to pick the exact NFC tag they need for a specific project. When it comes to NFC tags, it can be a mine field to know what you need. There are NFC tags designed for indoor use, NFC tags designed for outdoor use and different NFC tags for stickers and smartposters. That just covers a few areas of NFC tags and doesn’t even touch on memory size, whether the tag is rewritable, whether an admin can lock the data on the tag, or even whether the data needs to be encoded at the factory and then remains unwritable from that point on. As an emerging industry, NFC tags have spawned different tags for different environments with different capabilities in different use cases. Okay, I think we’ve made our point that unless you are used to dealing with NFC tags, it can be a little confusing picking the right tag for a specific job. TapThatTag app guides you through the process.

Kyocera Echo Android 2.3.4 update doesn’t bring NFC support
Kyocera Echo to get NFC support, not! It sounded too good to be true that Kyocera had sneaked some NFC love into its dual screen Echo smartphone, and alas it was. A company spokesperson confirmed that the Android 2.3.4 update would not bring NFC capabilities to the Kyocera Echo and that the announcement was a mistake. The rumor mill went wild yesterday after the update announcement had been made, as it looked like Sprint already had NFC phone number two right under our noses since April and we didn’t even know it. The Kyocera Echo hadn’t made it to our list of NFC phones just yet.
No NFC support for the Kyocera Echo, yet
There, there, we know, it’ll all be okay. Being taken to a giddy high and then dropped back down to Earth can be hard on the tech lover in your life.
