In Malaysia, a person is typically identified with aMyKad. LinKad accepts a MyKad, and links it to either the samecard, or any contactless card or NFC tag. The personal particularsin MyKad are retrieved through its contact interface and stored ina local database during linking. The contactless interface of MyKadcan be the target of linking. Alternatively, many other contactlesscards such as Touch n Go, MyRapid, Manjalink or any NFC tag can beused.After linking, the person only needs to tap the contactlesscard or NFC tag on a reader or an NFC-enabled phone to indicate hisor her presence. The presence may be used for attendance recordingor even in a basic payment system.The USB-NFC edition provides alow-cost option to users.

Communications with thecontactless interface is done through the built-in NFC component ofthe phone. The contactless card or NFC tag to be linked should betapped on the phone.CI LinKad allows multiple contactless cards orNFC tags to be linked to a person. As long as any of those cards ortags is tapped on a reader or a phone, the presence of the personis recorded.Reminder :You are responsible for the safe-keeping ofthe collected personal particulars, and for making sure they arenot utilized in any manner not agreed by their owners.Disclaimer:Causal Idea is not responsible for any loss, injury or damageinflicted during and after the installation and use of theapplication.MyKad compatibility :It has been learned that somemodels of Android devices, such as Samsung Galaxy S4, have migratedfrom NXP to Broadcom chips. This prevents the devices concernedfrom reading Mifare Classic cards. Unfortunately, MyKad hastraditionally been Mifare Classic. When tapping MyKad on thedevice, if you see a message saying the tag is not supported, thenthis is mostly likely the cause. There is no known workaround. So,it is suggested you use LinKad USB Edition instead. Or if possible,get an earlier Samsung Galaxy model such as S3. Or, switch toanother brand like Sony Xperia. :)
