How to Program and Use Samsung TecTiles

tectilesTecTiles are small programmable NFC(Near Field Communication) tags that can be read using the NFC technology on your Samsung device through an application that can be found on the Google Play store. The main function of a TecTile is to program it to complete tasks on your device like turning on your Bluetooth, Wifi, or opening certain applications by simply touching your device to the tag.

Some TecTiles can be accessed simply by using the NFC technology on your enabled device although some require that you use the free application on the Android Market. If for any reason you set you phone on a TecTile and it cannot read it and complete the action it will let you know that the application is needed.

Samsung Introduces TecTiles: NFC Tags You Can Program With Your NFC-Enabled Smartphone

1NFC is one of those odd features that everybody wants in their phone, but few people are sure how they'll use it yet. Payments systems are slow to catch on and Beam functionality requires a friend with an NFC phone and a need to share data that isn't easier to share via the internet. Samsung, who is quick to note it has the largest NFC-enabled userbase, aims to change that with TecTiles: NFC tags that you can program to perform tasks when you place your phone near them.
