@johnyma22 Thank you for the reply. I understand the difficulty in creating something this durable and I am impressed by your customer support regarding the matter. Although I shan't be pre-ordering, I eagerly await your next release.
Can I set up a series of actions to occur with one tap of a tag? <-- See The app in Google Play called "Tasker". I'd recommend having one action on each side of the ring.
Will NFC Ring Control recognize and launch any app installed on my device? <-- Depends on the app and what intents it supports. You can use ANY NFC software with our rings, you aren't just limited to ours.
2.1 Or, can I use the writer and ring to accomplish this? See 1.
By the way, these are actions I'll use at the bedside in the morning and night so I’m looking for the best solutions.
Last, I still need to purchase some NFC tags and the best ring. Are there any guidelines or requirements? <-- Just look at the datasheets for each ring to see which suits you best. I'd recommend the 2016 rings for new users and 2013 for more experienced :)
Many thanks for your response. I'll get to work on this and make a decision.
I did configure mine, prior to switching to smart lock, to use my normal swipe pattern plus unlock nfc. Having removed all my registered rings leaving just the pin unlock in the nfc unlock I then had pattern + nfc ring password.
Skip to the end. He's goin real slow. It will read the ring as soon as you place it in the read spot. So you brush to wake it, immediately press ring and bamn - it operates. Under a second in my tests.
Sadly we can't add new vouchers for free rings any more, that window of opportunity came and went.
We decided that as a company we need to draw a line under this and move forward so we can focus on the future. Apologies if you were affected negatively but imho we did everything we could to make it right and went way beyond what was expected of our service.
Customer service is a tricky thing where you want to do everything you can but you can't just give your company away and I feel like we behaved appropriately and have learned from it :)
Thanks for the support and apologies again that we can't take this any further.
@imscuba , sorry, I must have missed this post - thanks for reminding me, I had completely forgotten about this.
End results were all bad, with the removal of the comfort fit resulting in a much weaker ring and displacement of the inlay.
In order to fit the inlay in that portion of the ring is significantly thinner than a normal piece of jewellery would be.
So no, on both smaller and larger.
