Follows up Love the fact the developer follows up on issues, even reported here. Sure device has a few hiccups, but every great innovation has to start somewhere and never starts out flawless.

Coherent Abstractions

Broken Won't allow me to register to get code for nfc unlock app, all other parts of app work it reads and wrights to my nfc ring, but go to register page and does nothing at all on any side of ring,

Brett Clanton

Doesn't work The app just shows me five buttons that I cannot click (frozen I guess ). I am an iphone user, and I bought a samsung galaxy axiom with ice cream sandwich PURELY to run this app so I could setup my new NFC Ring. I am very disappointed. .


Can't click options to do anything App displays several options, none of which work. Clicking does nothing. Even after uninstall and reinstall, same behavior.

Nicholas Conte

The ring is a lie and the customer service is disgraceful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nfc tag won't hold information through a full day of normal use. Product is useless.And yes i have left a forum post. the response to that was telling me i was using it wrong. so to the developer telling me a one star review won't help anyone that's also a lie. it helps people avoid your product, your customer shaming, and your refusal to help fix a faulty product.

Freeze/crash at startup I can't do anything with this app. Add soon as I open it, it freezes, and then crashes a few seconds later. Sprint LG Optimus G

Frank Perez

Galaxy Note 3 The ring and app work well for me. When I first got the ring I was having trouble finding the sweet spot, this app has a feature that shows you the heat map of the NFC sweet spots and now I am easily able to use the ring with my phone.

Helen Allien Poe

With minor bugs, but nice.

William Kelly

Dont buy Poor support from the company and got a ring that would not work for anything i think i got it to recognize maybe twice but it wouldn't read or write anything. Its a scam

Alex Sheive

The product and app are a kick starter scam Ring doesn't work, app crashes instantly. We should start a class action lawsuit against these a**holes

Jordan Williams

You had one job Dies when I try to try write to the ring. LG G3.

Jon Sutton

Does not register! What's the point if it doesn't register? I want my money back.

Lyn Birchmore

Unable to use Does not work unable to access any pageand then crashes. Samsung galaxy S 3

Hiroki Okamoto

Doesn't open Was excited to receive my ring in the mail today. Downloaded and installed this app along with the unlock app. This so won't open, actually it opens to, what I'm assuming is it's opening page, but once open I can't do anything. Nothing works. Tried the Unlock App, but it doesn't work until you register the ring and of course I can't do that since nothing works on this app. So far a big disappointment. Would of reported this under their bug tracker link, but I shouldn't have to sign up for a Github account.

NFC Rings are complete rubbish I had my ring for 2 days before it broke. Since then I've gone back and forth with "Tom" and "Chris" who are apparently the entirety of company's customer service department. They have made excuses and dodged every opportunity to reasonable resolve the issue. First they offered to let me keep the junk ring I had and give me 1/2 of a new one... no thanks. Then about a month ago said that they had personally mailed a replacement ring which turned out to be a lie. Thank goodness for Visa fraud protection!

Ruben Delvalle

Ring Unlock Issue Good except that even when you disable the feature it will still lock your phone, which if you don't have your ring is frustrating to enter email/password. Please look into it.

joe menta

Not an NFC ring? Hmmm I scan the NFC ring to register it but im told its not one....wish I didn't pay the full amount for it least I can still use app to write stuff to it

Andrew Stoginski

A gross oversight I can't even set my contact info up on this. This, combined with being sent the wrong ring and having 3 tickets closed out on me, I will not be purchasing another product any time soon.

Ryan Clawson

Open specific app? Done of us don't care about Facebook or twitter. It would be near if I could open Google music and have it press play for me on one tag.

Zachary McDonald

Didn't work It says it will not connect to the server and then crashes can't control anything

Aaron Westervelt

still waiting for unlock code.... registered my ring 2 days ago and still haven't received unlock code. company is slow to respond to emails. in this day and age the unlock code should be an automated process. There is a feedback button in the app but it doesn't do anything when I click on it. This app wasn't ready for prime time. Response to developer's reply: Your response doesn't make sense. Inside the app, the Register option says "Register your NFC Ring and obtain your NFC Ring unlock app code." I registered my ring by scanning it and providing my email address...that's it, there was no code used by me to register. Also, when I open the NFC Ring Unlock app, I'm prompted for a verification code. Yet there's no directions to suggest how you get the verification code.

Barrie McNaught

Wonderful Wonderful app with a minor issue that seems to be affecting a few people myself included but nothing to downvote. I would like the ability to share contact information. I was hoping for something easier than making a web page but I don't know if that's an android limitation.

Robert Norberg

Can't register Just got my NFC ring and when I try to register it I get a warning that it's not an NFC ring. If I can't register in this app I can't use the NFC ring unlock app. Frustrating.

Santo Spirito

Awaiting delivery I was part of the kickstarter campiagn so eargerly awaiting for the ring to arrive.

Jordan Ellingson

Can't register Can't register ring. Just received in mail today. Both my HTC M8 and nexus 7 say "NOT NFC RING".

Eric Guenther

Can't Wait! Part of the initial KickStarter and can't wait to receive my Stealth Bomber NFC ring!

James Cassidy

Seems solid However the Locate Sweetspot does not work on the HTC One. If anyone is wondering it's centered just under the camera. Can't wait for the ring.

Jonah Alvarez

Don't have a ring Where can you get the rings I googled it but would only find a kick starter idea

Alasdair Nicoll

Store Text on Ring Seems to work fine on my Nexus 4, but there's no option to write plain text strings to the ring. What if I want to store my passport number/password/id/secret codes? Update: Text coming soon! Great news. Can't wait to test. Thank's John. Update 2: Have tested in-app, without the ring - looks good - not sure if there's a max character limit on the field; don't want half my Secret Code string cut off during transfer to the inlay! Can't wait to experiment.

Peter Pavlovic

No longer crashes on exit! Great! Now just need the ring. Would be good to write a vCard so I can use it to pass contact details...

James Crowther

Seems to work fine Seems to work fine on my phone (nexus 4 running CyanogenMod 11 (kitkat 4.4.2))

Stoyan Krastilov

OK but.... Can'exit with Back button ! Fix it.

Tony Buon

Good Note 3 crashes on exit too

Shawn Burkit

App issue This app has to way to exit the application. The back button will only take you to the main app screen. Please resolve the issue.

Sephiroth Egret

Can't really do much without My ring so giving this 3 stars for now. For some reason the back button doesn't work while in the app. Weird bug.

Bryan Teger

Can't wait! To finally get my ring!

Matthew Anon

Neat, especially for the sweet spot Decent app but it's missing a few things. The back button should do what the finish button does. Reading a tag and creating an alert dialog should clear previous dialogs. These little things annoyed me or else I'd give five stars.

Swag Man

Touch functions don't work. A child could do better (menu options)

Cian Tempest

Not usable Control app just has buttons that don't work. And on the unlock app when it prompts for a code to be set up only half of the keypad is on the screen HELP!!

David Slattery

Can't make the ring work. Can make other NFC tags work

enoch serna

Stylish ring The ring is great! Wished there were Google Wallet or Paypal support. That would be grand and dangerous if ring is lost or stolen. But still, it would be grand if there were an option of pay.

Ethan Woo

I cant write anything I was young to write text / url. But it just doesnt work. G3

Irena Savchenko

Functional... but only just ? The interface feels like my old Android apps from years back and with zero Google love, only pointless Facebook, Twitter and some random other ? The Instructions use unfriendly English and for someone who isn't a tech nerd, but just loves using modern technology, it's annoying. It's a great NFC Ring at least, just a terrible app, including the awful screen lock app, which fails more than works ? / Device: OnePlus One (64Gb)

claudia carlson

What good is it if it only partially works? No way to erase what you've programmed the ring to send. Feedback button doesn't work, guess they really don't want to help. Can't use forums until they send verify email, 3 days and still waiting...

Gregg Carlson

Does not work. S6 phone sees the ring, registered, but endlessly wants to reset my password. Over and over, never unlocks the phone.

Ian Hunter

I have a genuine nfc ring but won't let me register saying it might not be genuine help please

Chris Ringeisen

Development is stale I love the build quality of the new rings having previously bought version one. Bit your apps are in need of a lot of love.

Dave Yates

Ring not writable Can't wright anything to the ring. States the tag isn't ndef

Matthiew Marks

All it does are links The feature set of this app is disappointing. I didn't buy a $60 NFC ring just to use add a website bookmark. I hope this ring works with other NFC apps.

Luke Barnard

Works, sort of Everything works besides when I go to register the ring it says it may not genuine... I was one of the first to get one of these when it was still a kickstarter project, smh.

Chris L

Really nice little app Well designed and does everything I need my NFC Ring to do. I can even program other NFC tags with it just fine. Love the vCard addition in the latest update.

Kev Chay

Devs, under the create new action for the ring, could you guys add in a unlock function. And also the feedback selection is useless. Nothing happen when selected

Ryan Olgin

It's ok Ring is ok buy it has a hard time unlocking my phone with a thin case, very unimpressed with the ring signal. It does work but signal is weak and would like more apps but I do like the look and water proof feature.

Daevid Vincent

This isn't used to un/lock my phone?! Seems kind of useless then.

Matt H

NFC is spotty I'm sure if my phone was as sensitive to the ring as it needed to be I'd love it, but as it stands even the supposed hit zones aren't reliable enough to use regularly and as a result the ring was kind of a dud gift. It's a shame because if it just worked wherever I touched it to my phone I can imagine it'd be a lot more secure.
