Re-use/recycle write protected NFC Tags such as hotel key-cards, access badges, price tags, lift cards, key fobs etc...
You can use this app to associate multiple functions (e.g. Wlan OFF, Bluetooth ON, Mobile Data TOGGLE, start navigation,run Tasker task, start any installed app, use media buttons, call a phone number, add a timestamp, calendar entry, add Text-to-Speech and much more!) to a NFC (near field communication) tag via an app internal database. You can even add tag cycles and let your tag run different activities per scan. So ReTag is the perfect NFC automation tool for you ;-).

(Works with ANY android supported tag = re-writable AND write protected!)

With NFC ReTag you don´t have to write anything on the tag (-> uses the tag ID, great for small tagsizes and write-protected tags!) and NO data is send to the internet. Additional write options (for better dispatching, device independent tags etc.) are also available. Import of activity tags and beaming is also supportet.

*!* NFC enabled device required / NO root required *!*

Support forum:

If you have any issues, please do not hesitate to write us an e-mail.

You could combine any activities/ actions and add as many activities and cycles as you want per tag. (obviously except for writing activity tags -> depends on tagsize). For best performance and dispatching, write a special NFC ReTag tag (this is NOT an activity tag!).

Full description and changelog:

An ad supported free version (with limited number of tags) and an unlimited ad-free (PRO) version is available. Please check if this app works on your phone via the FREE version before downloading the PRO version.

Supports any standard android NFC tags (NFC Forum Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4, MIFARE Classic, Ultralight(C), DESFire etc.).

Issues with TASKER: Install Tasker BEFORE NFC ReTAG, enable Misc / Allow External Access in Tasker UI, enable Tasker (on/off button), try the Tasker fallback option within NFC ReTag settings!

Some security related NFC Tags (e.g. in passports) change their ID on every read attempt. This app will not work with such tags.

    Use NFC chips you already have like credit cards and some hotel room keys to launch custom actions. I use it to run my Tasker tasks, like launching my banking app when I tap my wallet.

    isn't toggled when car mode is launched with the app. It simply starts a car mode sign notification in notification bar which does nothing. Gotta need to update to accommodate. Nevertheless, one of the greatest software ever!

    A desperate option needed is to reorder the commands. I want to add a new command at the start but dont want to completely redo the whole list. Another feature needed is to unlock the screen.
