MIFARE Ultralight NFC Smart Ring.


Multifunctional, Waterproof and Stylish- Product Review.


After waiting two weeks I finally received my NFC (Near Field Communication) Smart ring. With many different styles and sizes, you’ll have to take your time and scroll through a few, maybe hundreds of rings to find the right quality and of course low prices. I ended up finding a few nice generic rings with a high ratings 5000+ and prices between $5.00-$10.00 AUD.

Upon receiving the ring depending on what market or brand, it may arrive in a small package baggie or its own branded package. I resorted to buying a size bigger as sizes 10-11 were out of stock at the time.

One of the most common complaints I’ve heard so far is that the ring doesn’t work or your device is not receiving the ring’s data. Is your device NFC compatible? these little chips are installed on many devices usually the newer models, but sadly some may miss out on this experience. Before you buy, look through your device’s settings and see whether it is compatible or not. When you are using the device for the first time, scanning it will just say its empty so finding the right application for your device is essential for writing tasks for it to perform, this is when you will find that it has many features and functions.


Popular Android, Windows, and Apple NFC Smart Ring Applications.


Android Play Store.

  • NFC Ring Control: Read your Smart Ring and write tasks. Features also include social media link, youtube link, and website/URL link.
  • Smart NFC: Read, write, link social media and URLs, launch applications, send emails and text messages and more. The free version is limited (with ads) but still provides some basic tools or buy the full version for $1.39.
  • NFC Tools: Free to use, this app has all the essential linking tools you need. With 1M+ downloads, its features include URL/URI link, social media link, search engine link, video link, add contact/phone number, SMS and location settings include add a location, add an address, destination address (use this feature to link with Google Maps), proximity search and street view.

One of the most useful services I found on NFC Tools was the option to add Emergency information. Enter your details including allergies, blood type and whether you are an organ donor. We always have our mobile phones close by but 99% of us use a pin or lock, it”s a useful tool for if there is ever an Emergency.

Windows (Mobile).
  • NFC Launchit: The only application that controls most built-in applications on your mobile. This is where you can get more use out of your smart ring. Some features include (app control) accessibility settings, airplane mode settings, alarms, battery saver, Bing search, Bluetooth settings, calculator, calendar, call number, camera, Cortana (WP 8.1+), date and time, find my phone, games, Here Drive, Kids corner, launch website, lock screen settings, marketplace, messaging, music and more. Its the ultimate NFC tool kit for windows.
  • NFCsms: Create and send text messages pre-written on the ring. It has limited use as scanning the ring then opens the messaging app for you to review and send. Useful for the office or invitational if you have to send the same message to multiple contacts.
Apple IOS.
  • Jakom.com: Required purchase of the Jakom NFC smart ring, Jakom currently offers the only application available to control your ring by scanning the QR code received after purchasing and receiving the ring, you’ll then be sent to the website needed to control your ring. The downside to this is its not actually an application but a website, so you will have to bookmark it to use for the future. Also its only limited to text sharing and creating a virtual business card.

Is It Worth It?

While Smart Rings are only just making its name in the marketplace, it leaves plenty of room for application creation and user reviews and this is only one of them. Some rings may work well with one OS while they work better with others, experiment and see what suits you. Currently, I’m using mine to link viewers to this website and my Twitter page, while leaving a personalized message. If I were to pick out its more useful purpose at the moment, its a great advertising technique for your website or online marketplace.

  1. I absolutely love your site.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you develop this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my very own site and would like to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called. Many thanks!|

  2. A great question. Getting your study space ready is my first step, tidying up and making sure there’s plenty of desk space, keeping notebooks/pens/markers within reach. If you have a computer table that holds extra space eg: shelving and CD storage this helps with organising things without having to move to another bookshelf. Clearing the place of all sounds that could be distracting tv’s, radios (unless your cool with some tunes) a quiet workspace leaves a clear mind. If your having trouble of where to begin, before posting, I spend a bit of my spare time writing practice articles on random topics and keep them all in a book. Some will never see the light of day but it’s great to get the brain flowing educating yourself while learning the different styles of article writing. After a while you can look back at the different levels of articles you’ve been writing and how much you have improved, use it as a push to show yourself what you can do. Experiment with the content to see what really grabs people’s attention and don’t be afraid to make an edit change if it feels boring. Enjoy Blogging and Good Luck 🍀

  3. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or
    tips? Kudos!

  4. I have seen that nowadays, more and more people are increasingly being attracted to cameras and the field of taking pictures. However, really being a photographer, you must first commit so much time frame deciding which model of dslr camera to buy along with moving store to store just so you can buy the most affordable camera of the brand you have decided to settle on. But it isn’t going to end at this time there. You also have to contemplate whether you should buy a digital video camera extended warranty. Thanks a bunch for the good tips I gathered from your blog site.

  5. One more important aspect is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance with regard to pensioners is something you should really look at. The older you are, the greater at risk you are for making something awful happen to you while in foreign countries. If you are certainly not covered by quite a few comprehensive insurance coverage, you could have some serious troubles. Thanks for sharing your good tips on this blog.

  7. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt
    for something concerning this.
