Last month, Adam introduced us to NFCLauncher; the first BlackBerry application to tap (pardon the pun) into the power of NFC. As he mentioned, the application allows you to launch applications, ShortcutMe macros, media; just about anything that your BlackBerry smartphone can do – all with a tap against NFC tags. Fonware, the developer behind NFCLauncher, now known as NFCShortcuts has an impressive history of creating new ways to automate your most common command on your BlackBerry using the popular ShortcutMe. They take it even further with NFCShortcuts, but it’s up to you to decide what you want to do with it. Now while we’ve heard of the NFC capabilities being tested here and there, this is an amazing way to see it for yourselves, and benefit from it too!

Since we last took a look at NFCShortcuts, it’s received some significant updates to it. For starters, NFC tags can now be reprogrammed so you can change them as your needs change. You can also program your tag so that they do not cause the Smart Tags applications to run, only NFCShortcuts.

Contest: We have 25 copies of NFCShortcuts to giveaway! All you have to do is leave a comment below to be entered. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST. The contest involves the NFCShortcuts application only, not the NFC tags. For NFC tags, Fonware suggests picking up non-programmed Mifare Ultralight tags.

I would love this! Hook a brother up!

Edit: NVM, Dont pick me. I got to excited and then remembered that AT&T is a bunch of asshats and they block NFC.

EDIT---Don't pick me, either-on ATT with my 9800 and they block it for some reason-sure sounded like a cool app to have though. Rat Finks...

Still, good luck to everyone else entered whose carrier will allow them to utilize it, provided that they win.

I was first looking forward to the convenient payment options promised by NFC. Now i am beginning to see NFC will bring so much more.

I purchased NFC Launcher all ready in an effort to try and learn to program tags. Now I'm told that the NFCLauncher app is worthless and I have to buy the new app, OR hope I win a copy? Well, I'd like to win a copy then and maybe I could learn how to program the tags someday. I already have ShortcutMe and NFCLauncher but I just can't figure out how to write the tags or program the Launcher. I'm in though.......It looks really fun once I can learn how to work it..

jrocke0w0

I'll take 1 please. I'm anxious to use my 9900 to its full potential!!

bizzyqu

this would definitely be a fun addition to my bold!

chisler

Custom Tags, Perfecto!

slagman5

This would be pretty awesome, the idea of putting a tag by your door so you can switch from wifi mode to carrier mode is a great idea. I guess put another tag by your desk to do the opposite... Just wondering though, where do you get the nfc tags?

kidmac13

im pretty sure i should win.

gordonzhao
