    I have one by my desk. Connects WiFi, enables lock screen, lowers volume. Tap again toggles those settings. One in my car for Bluetooth and music start.

    Which tags did you get? Is there anything to look out for when buying them or anything to avoid?

    Like all things in life, size matters!

    RapidNFC NFC Tags Six Pack Stickers - Six Colours: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    Avoid anything smaller than these for task sequences (137 bytes)

    Well so far, with 3 NFC tags in use its erm, ok.

    Think the most useful is the Satnav activation NFC in the car. Still cant find uses past the obvious tho!
