“DIMPLE allows mobile users to add four customizable hardware buttons to NFC-enabled Android gadgets. In essence, DIMPLE is an NFC sticker that you put on the rear side of your gadget where it is installed in close proximity of the smartphone’s NFC reader,” said Rihards Skrubis, founder of DIMPLE. “What’s most important is that the user is the one who chooses the functionality – using their NFC-enabled smartphone to make everyday tasks quicker or to save precious time by launching key apps. DIMPLE offers endless personalized options using the phone’s own energy and NFC technology.”

A plug-in framework can dramatically extend the array of choices regarding standard functionality that the companion app provides, making everyday tasks quicker and saving precious time with key apps.
