    I created an app on the Google Play store that can read data from amiibo to determine which figure it is. I'm also working on data backup but I don't want to release that yet due to issues with Nintendo's copyrights.

    The app itself recognizes which amiibo is scanned and lets the user set up simple actions to preform every subsequent time it is scanned. I don't personally own every amiibo, but I believe it works with all the ones released so far.

    Cool project, but don't try to spoof amiibo or you'll get a nice C&D on your doorstep.

    Awesome! The price tag is somewhat holding me off though.

    Yep. Not touching that if I'm going to release on Google Play.

    I already got a letter from them saying the app's logo infringed on copyright; wonder why they said nothing of NFC compatibility. :rofl2:

    @ Celeryyy: Does the app also support tracking non-US retailers? If so, what countries/retailers does it support so far?

    Non-US support is a bit limited but it does the European Amazons flawlessly and a few others in the UK like Gamestop, GAME, Gameseek, and the official Nintendo Store.

    There was a project released a few years ago for decrypting Skylanders figure dumps, which quickly got the author in a lot of legal heat with Activision. Also found some since-deleted Reddit posts from one guy who apparently had something similar working for amiibos, but removed all references to it at the behest of his lawyer http://redd.it/2nxm37
    Now ofc there's Maxlander, but the pricetag probably puts a number of people off it.
    EDIT: And memahaxx's video evidence of spoofing amiibo's via drc-sim, but it's not looking likely that they'll release that any time soon :P
