Touchatag Client


Touchatag is a service that allows you to link NFC tags to actions. When a tag is scanned, the tag info is sent to the Touchatag server. If an action is associated to that tag, the client app will execute it.

Some example tag action are:

- Opening an URL in the browser
- Open the Mail app with the 'mailto:' scheme
- Opening Maps app at certain coordinates with the 'geo:' scheme
- Opening the Dialer app with a certain number using the 'tel:' scheme

4. Create a new WebLink app with a certain URL you want the tag to trigger
5. Click 'use app' and select RFID tag.
6. You are now asked to place a tag on the reader, use your phone to send the tag info. The tag will show up in the dashboard. Click 'choose this tag' and done!
7. If you now scan the tag it will trigger the WebLink app and open the URL.

Open the foursquare app at a certain venue : use 'http://m.foursquare.com/venue/563520' as URL

Extremely limited! Bought tags from them & they can only be used with their equipment. Waiting for a response for a refund! Website doesn't say anything about limited capabilites. Poor business model

does nothing I have a touchatag (technically a tikitag) and scanning it only goes to a page saying that it's not associated

would do something if you can configure it You can scan tags, but then it tells you that they are not associated with an application. And you can't associate them either. All you can do is see that you have gone to a link on their website, and that link tells you its not associated with anything. Useless. I see a lot of potential in NFC tags, but not from this company, I cannot recommend anyone buying their tags as they are extremely limited in capabilities and unless you buy their hardware reader for your computer you cannot configure the tags to do anything.
