An incredibly innovative new app called ToothTag is soon to grace the Android market. This app, which was created by a company called 'NeuAer', seems to have an endless variety of uses, hindered only by your creativity. It utilizes WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC technology to create tags for items, places, events, and people in your life. It takes the idea of location-based services a step further by actually showing you what's in your immediate surroundings in novel and creative ways that you can customize.
An example of how it works might be:
- You park your car and then set a Google Maps pin of the location. Then, when you return to your car later, you can set a custom recording to start telling you that 'you are getting warmer' as you get close to it.
- Another example could be; You go to a party that you have previously tagged, and can check in with ToothTag to see which of your friends that you also tagged are already there, or you can even set it to start playing a 'warning' song when someone, like your ex for instance, is in a predefined proximity to you. 'Darth Vader's Imperial Death March' comes to mind as a good choice of song for this particular situation.
- Or, perhaps there is a person at work that always talks your ear off. You could set your phone to 'call' you with a ring-tone, and escape from the annoying person by 'having to take an important phone call.'
You are really only limited by your imagination. This app seems to have amazing possibilities. Share some of your ideas in the forums.
