    I think Flic is better. You don't need to point your phone to a tag and it offers same functionality as the NFC tags.
    • You can set three different functions per flic. Have flic to do different functions on click, double click and hold.
    You should check it out: http://www.fliciscoming.com/

    Thanks for the info. I want to try them out. They seem like they could be useful.

    So is this about your experience? Or is it just a tutorial? Or are you just advertising some apps?

    NFC is near field communication. An NFC tag is a little sticker that you can program to do something when you tap your phone on it. I used to have one in my car. I would tap my phone against it and it would send a text to my girlfriend and say that I'm on my way. It's kinda useful. I still maintain the idea that NFC is stupid and more useless than useful.

    The reason is because by default Android will stop you from doing that.
    If you are rooted and have Closed framework installed, install the NFC Lockscreen Off Enabler module. That's what I did

    OK so being rooted is the way to fix that then. Is rooting hard/worth the trouble?

    And I was thinking the same. Doesn't NFC constantly draw at least some battery?
    Because, the idea of "changing the profile with NFC tag while phone is locked" sound great. But at the same time, it sound like a total waste of battery,., any info on that?

    @mattc : So OPO would work flawlessly with Sony Xperia NFC tags right? No need to doubt before buying? Am planning to buy now. Confused between the sony tags and smartrac stickers. I personally like the Sony ones as they are durable, no worries of sticker being blow away or peeled off ;)

    Thanks for the post. Will dig into more about NFC before I have One+1. So that no surprises later on ;)
