I was browsing the app store my new Android phone were I came across a Microsoft product called Tag. I had no idea what is but I went ahead an installed it anyway. My first impression though was that the icon was lame, 1988 looking if you ask me.
Turns out it is a glorified UPC. Very promising stuff.
Here is my first tag. It links to my Live blog.
One initial thought I had was “Ok, I’ve viewed it on my mobile phone but now I have access to a pc and I want to review visit, how do I easily do that?” It looks like there is no way of doing this.
Another initial reaction is I don’t like the above url. gettag.mobi? why not a .com?
App Usage Feedback
The first time on ran the app on my phone it asked me too many questions, I think there were 4 prompts. Too many in my opinion.
I was able to point my phone at the image above and it worked! Very cool.
Microsoft Tag Website
As the creator of the above tag I can view a set of reports (as expected). The reports are good but the icons are weak. Very small and old school looking.
