NEWS: Microsoft releases Tag app with Tag, QR, & NFC support

The new Tag app now supports Tag barcodes, QR Codes and NFC. With so many readers and formats, everyday users have been frustrated by the fragmentation in the industry. We’ve heard your concerns and have launched one app that can scan the most common 2D barcodes and NFC touchpoints. The new Microsoft Tag app for Android and iPhone lets users scan Tag barcodes and QR Codes – both those generated by Tag and third-party codes. But wait, there’s more! Android users who have NFC-enabled smartphones can use the updated app to also scan NFC touchpoints. Users of the new app will have all this as well as features such as:

  • A visual history of the most recent Tags and the ability to flag and organize favorites in a variety of ways
  • Ability to share Tag experiences with friends on Facebook or Twitter as well as via email
  • View other Tag campaigns through our Featured Tags section
  • Save and edit contact information

Windows Phone 7.5 also supports Tag barcode and QR Code scanning through the Bing Visual Search button.

So there is no reason to have more than one reader taking up space on your mobile device… and that’s space you can use for more important apps like Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja.
