Fun and Tricks with NFC and Your Android, Part 1

Advertisement

In our last video we showed off CyanogenMod 9. Among the topics we covered were “Profiles” and a teaser of something awesome to come in our next video — this video.

Switching profile’s isn’t all that quick. It’s somewhat unfortunate because the several screen taps that are required to switch between profiles has been enough to keep me from using them. With NFC, that all changes. Hit play, and prepare to have your mind blown.

Interested in getting some NFC tags, you need only head over to Amazon.com to see a huge list of tags that you can buy. They will probably cost you around $1.50 each, but you’re only going to need a few. I bought ten for right around $15.
