Samsung Rolls Out New Functions for TecTile App
Samsung today announced version 3.0 of its TecTile application for Android devices. The new application significantly boosts the functionality of the TecTile stickers by allowing Samsung smartphone owners to do more with them. For example, the new TecTile app allows users to program multiple functions for a single tag, customize profiles via tags, store TecTile tag history, create private TectTile tags, and unlock locked TecTiles. TecTiles can also be set to do things such as share electronic business cards, forward a call to a predetermined number, or playback specific music tracks in the media player. TecTile 3.0 is a free download from the Google Play Store. Samsung sells the TecTiles in packs of 5 for $14.99 at AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile USA stores. TecTiles originally launched on the Galaxy S III, but Samsung said that the TecTiles app is now compatible with a wide array of its handsets, including the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and others.
