NFC Profile Version 2.1

I just released a new redesigned version (2.1) of my free open source Android app NFC Profile. With NFC Profile you can write different system settings profiles on NFC tags. When you touch a profile tag with your Android NFC enabled device, your configured system settings will be toggled accordingly. My personal use case for the app is to switch my wireless connections off and to turn my ringtone silent at night with a touch of a tag. The next morning I just have to touch the same tag again to switch my wireless connections back on and to turn my ringtone on also.

Feature Set:
  • enable/disable airplane mode on tag detection
  • start an external app on tag detection
  • enable/disable Bluetooth on tag detection
  • enable/disable WiFi on tag detection
  • switch ringtone on/off on tag detection
  • set alarm on tag detection

NFC Profile can be downloaded in the Android market at:

Available on Google Play

    Wir sind gespannt auf weitere Updates :)
