Episode 86: WayAround, the easy to use labelling system that works with the phone you always have with you

Kia ora again Mosen At Largers. Chances are that you’ve tried one of the many audio labelling gadgets that have come and gone over the years. They were all handy, but it was another device to carry around, charge or have a fresh set of batteries to hand, and potentially lose. What is you could have even better functionality using the smartphone you have with you anyway?
 
This episode is all about WayAround, a system that uses the NFC reader on most Android phones and on all current iPhones. It’s simple to use, elegant, and it works. I’m now using to label everything from clothing to household items.
 
I’ll speak with Jessica Hipp from WayAround, then give you a demo of the iOS app.
