N2 Manager Update

Dear users: Today we release a stopgap fix release for our N2 Manager application. Some users

28/12 – N2 >< Amiiqo name change

A quick confirmation as we still receive lots of email about the Amiiqo>N2 name change:

N2 Elite and Amiiqo are exactly identical products. The only difference between an Amiiqo purchased a few months ago and a N2 Elite is the sticker on the device ūüôā .

You can replace one name, ‘N2’, by the other, ‘Amiiqo’. Therefore, early adopters who bought an ‘Amiiqo’ and not a ‘N2’ do not need to worry. Their device supports all current updates, and since we will try our best to only proceed via software updates, you will enjoy continuous support for years wether you own an ‘Amiiqo’ or a ‘N2’.

On a side note, the free bonus offer for early adopter is now closed. All bonus items have been shipped. If you did not receive your bonus item or at least an email with your tracking, you can contact us to obtain your bonus item information only if you had emailed us before Christmas 2015.

Happy holidays to all from the N2 team!

14/12 – N2 Manager Release

Today we are proud to bring you the first release of the new N2 Manager application that is to be used with our N2 USB peripheral. Head over to the Downloads page to find a copy of the application for Windows and OSX. Providing a compatible/universal Linux binary proves to be a bit of a challenge, so we’re still working on that. Early adopters of our N2 USB hardware should be getting their devices in the mail soon!

Stay tuned for upcoming news on the new Android application and our efforts into open sourcing our hardware!

Amiiqo Press Release 2015-12-01 — Introducing N^2 Elite.

Phew! We’re back! First of all, sorry for the long silence. The past few months have been very hectic for us. Dealing¬†with legal matters is never a pleasant nor a fast process. We had to deal with C&D’s, our ISP shutting us down¬†and then a lengthy legal process to ensure that we’re “doing the right thing” ‚ĄĘ. Suffice to say, these are not the¬†areas on which we would like to spend our precious time, but let bygones be bygones!

Now, for the relevant and more exciting news:

As of today we will be known as “N2 Elite“, or N^2 in short. This rebranding is not merely the result of a¬†legal matter but is the first step into expanding our existing product with exciting new functionalities! As you know the¬†firmware on our N^2 NFC emulation tag is fully upgradeable, and we have many exciting functionalities planned for our users.

Skylander? MIFARE? Access token emulation? The sky is the limit!

Secondly, the USB NFC reader/writer hardware is currently rolling out of our factories and being shipped out to early adopters of the N^2 productline (you know who you are!). We are excited about this addition to the N^2 hardware family, both as a way for people without an android phone to manage their N^2 tag as well as a general purpose NFC/RFID reader/writer!

n2reader._HH

The hardware is based around the known NXP MFRC522 chip and connects to the computer using a USBserial bridge (Oh, and we added 3 leds¬†for various methods of displaying status ). We’ve extensively been testing this hardware and implemented the N^2 manager as a¬†reference application. We hope to soon be able to provide documentation and an SDK so fellow developers can repurpose our¬†reader/writer hardware to talk to any RFID/NFC/ISO14443 device they like.

Screen-Shot-2015-12-01-at-17.57.35_2

To accompany the release of the N^2 USB NFC reader/writer we’ll also release the N^2 manager app soon. This cross-platform application¬†for Windows, OSX and Linux will allow you to manage your N^2 tag like you would with the android application. Simple, fast and easy!

The look and feel of the android app has been a bit crude from the start. A proof of concept you could say… Don’t fret, we’ve been¬†hard at work redesigning the flow and look and feel of the app. The new app allows to manage separate “profiles” for your N^2 tag¬†and has been completely redesigned to give the user the android user experience!
