SaveKad (MyKad recorder)
by: Causal Idea • 5
SaveKad allows the personal particulars of the MyKad chip to be shown and saved on a smartphone or tablet. A tiny affordable smartcard reader ACR38U-PocketMate is needed. It is probably one of the smallest and most portable contact smartcard readers in the market. To purchase the reader, please visit the Causal Idea website, whose URL is at the bottom of this description.
Instead of using a piece of paper to jolt down the names of students, club members or employees interested in joining an activity, we can now use a smartphone or a tablet, together with a small reader, to record their particulars easily and quickly. This involves a simple card insertion action and a few taps on the screen.
The recorded data can be easily exported to a csv file, again, with a few screen taps, for use in spreadsheets and mail-merge facilities of word-processors. So, from participant registration, to creation of a presentable participant list or sending out of notification letters, there is no longer a need to write their names and addresses by hand.
These are some of the uses of SaveKad.
In order to alleviate the data mis-use concern of JPJ, the saving of driving license data has been disabled for the time being.
