Frequently asked questions, answered

Is DIMPLE.IO discontinued?

Yes, DIMPLE.IO doesn't exist anymore. If you recently were able to place an order- it will be delivered shortly. No new orders are accepted.

Will it work with my device?

There's thousands of devices DIMPLE.IO buttons will work on. This sadly excludes phones made entirely out of metal. Creating a device out of metal usually requires the engineers to make some sacrifices in terms of antenna location. This affects our customers' ability to position DIMPLE ergonomically. If your device has a metal enclosure- it doesn't necessarily mean that it's incompatible, many metal devices like Pixel or all of the latest Galaxy series are still compatible. So, if your device runs Android 4.0 and above, is not made entirely out of metal, and has NFC technology, you are safe to assume that DIMPLE will work with it.

The app shows as unsupported on the Play store

Sadly Google recently updated their minimum target requirement API version, forcing an update. Migration to a newer API version broke too many things, not practical to fix given the very limited amount of stock left. Please download the app .apk here. Please note that you may need to enable app installation from unknown sources. Alternatively you can use any of the many NFC tag automation apps on the play store.

Will it work with my iPhone?

Yes, after iOS14 you can use these in conjunction with automation app on non metal backed iphones.

Can I cut them?

No, you will destroy the internal circuitry.

No HTC One, Nexus 6P, LG G5, OnePlus 3, etc?

Designing a metal body forces the engineers to get creative. The result of this creativity is that the NFC antenna is located around the camera ring. You would have to sacrifice the camera to make the DIMPLE work. No cases or covers will solve this.

Will it work with my Galaxy S10,S20,S21/Note phone?

Yes- if it has NFC and the rear is made out of glass.

Will it work with my Pixel phone?

Yes. Rear glass part.

Can it be reused?

Even though the adhesive used allows for easy removal, each time you remove a DIMPLE from your devices surface the adhesive properties will deteriorate and that may compromise the longevity of the DIMPLE. Think of reusing a standard sticker- it will stick to the surface to some degree, but nowere near as good as when it was new.

Where can I put it?

In close proximity to the NFC antenna of the device. For most gadgets it means rear rear side of the device. For tablets it means a part of the rear side. You can easily add multiple units on one device as long as they are positioned at least partially over the NFC antenna coil.

Will it work with my case?

DIMPLE can be attached directly to your case instead of to the surface of your device. Unless the case is made out of metal, you should be fine.

How about accidental trigger?

We have engineered the buttons impossible to be pressed unintentionaly. The buttons are flush with the surface of the DIMPLE.

How long will it last?

If you applied the DIMPLE carefully, the adhesive should outlast your gadget upgrade cycles. Our tests have concluded that each button can withstand about 2 million clicks, and you can reassign the functionality of around 100,000 times before the button memory wears out. It is more likely that washing it and exposing to disinfectants will slowly kill the adhesive used in the sticker.

I want to use DIMPLE.IO in my app

How about other platforms?

You can't use DIMPLE.IO On an iPhone due to the fact that Apple has chosen to limit the use of NFC in their devices to just Apple Pay and some useless interaction with modal confirmation windows for every "NFC Action". Hopefully it will be opened to a broader audience soon. You can use DIMPLE.IO on Windows Phone and Blackberry by using a third party app.

I want to use Tasker to do some crazy stuff with a DIMPLE.IO button. How exactly am I supposed to make it work?

It's simple. Make sure you have Tasker installed. Enable external app access in the Tasker settings. Install the DIMPLE.IO app. Select a Tasker task from within the DIMPLE.IO app.

Is it waterproof?

Yes, the cool thing is that the buttons still work under water, unlike the capacitive screen.
