Dimple Uses NFC to Add Shortcut Buttons to Android Phones: Hastener

by Lambert Varias

Near Field Technology (NFC) in mobile devices is mostly used for effortless interactions with other gadgets, such as opening smart door locks, pairing with digital cameras, or issuing wireless payments. An upcoming accessory called Dimple shows us that NFC can also be used to improve a mobile device itself. It’s a set of stick-on buttons that you can set to trigger a variety of actions.

Stick Dimple on your device then use its complementary app to specify what its buttons will trigger.  With one click, you can open your browser to a particular webpage, call a cab, toggle a setting and more. Dimple Inc. also promises that Dimple will be integrated with the popular automation app Tasker.

Dimple works with any NFC-enabled device running Android 4.0 or later, except for those that have metal cases such as the new HTC One M8.

Dimple Inc. will launch an Indiegogo fundraiser for Dimple on May 6. Sign up on the Dimple website to be reminded when the fundraiser goes live.
