    NFC tags in HK

    Anyone know of a walk-in store that sells NFC tags?

    I'm guessing they would be available somewhere in one of the computer centres or the usual SSP street, but don't want to comb through several dozen stores before stumbling across the right one.

    Probably about half a dozen, so if there's nowhere I can pick them up super easy in HK I'll just order a bunch via the net. I was kind of hoping that someone might know of a place in WCC as I pass it on the way home

    Question to you guys who've obviously used them: Are they really simple to manipulate phones with or do you need to mess with something like Tasker (which I found a pain in the ass).

    Sorry I don't have that many.

    They are quite easy to work with, I've used a couple of apps with NFC tags
    On Android, "Automate" can work with NFC tags and, in my opinion, gives a good balance between complexity and power

    Hah, that'd be a cool thing to do.

    Don't worry about looking for spares though, I'll just order a dozen or so off the net and wait for a bit.

    How does one get to keep Shenzhen MTR tokens? don't they get swallowed up when you exit?
