Talking Tags

Way Around for Android and iOS is a “simple tag-and-scan system [that] lets you record a custom description for any item plus details like washing instructions or expiration dates.”. Purchase tags from the app developer and tag all and anything that you want to label. Add a description to an item, then just open the WayAround application, scan the tag and your smartphone will read the description you recorded. WayAround also lets you select specific information from the tag, like description of item only or washing instructions only. The tags come as stickers, magnets, buttons, and clips, and cost about a dollar each. Thank goodness they’re reusable.
