    Lovely bit of code, thanks for the source too. Works fine, picked up all tags I gave to it. Well done.

    Works exactly how I needed it to we use RFID tags for assets at my job and it works perfectly for me in the field. I am very happy to see copy and paste function. Other apps in the market do not even have a simple copy and paste function.

    App allows me to copy tag text to clipboard. Many apps omit this basic functionality.
