#N9Apps: Collection of NFC Tag Writing Apps

| October 9, 2012 | 18 Replies

Firstly, just a huge thanks to SwipeMobile AU, for providing me with some free NFC tags. If you’re in Australia, and want to look at NFC development, check them out.

Now, after that little marketing spiel ( :p ), onto the the app reviews. In this article we will look at a few NFC Writing apps I’ve used since I got the tags.

First up, is NFC TagWriter. This app allows you to;

  • Read Tag
  • Write Text Tag
  • Write URI Tag
  • Write VCard Tag
  • Write Smart Poster Tag
  • Write Bluetooth Audio Tag

Most of the tags you create seem to only be readable in the app, but creating a Tag with a URI (which is just a weblink) works via the default NFC system, although make sure the app is NOT in the background otherwise it will be read by the app, which doesn’t allow a clickable link. I’ve personally had trouble when it comes to adding VCards, BT Audio, and Smart Poster Tags. VCards


Note: I am using PR 1.3, which has apparently had NFC improvements, so you may experience slightly different results if using another version of the N9 Firmware.

We also have NFC Tag Writing Plugin, a simple “Sharing” plugin that allows you to share various items from your device, by writing the content to an NFC Tag. Personally, this is my favorite, as I have used the tags to store my own contact information, and instead on giving out business cards (which I didn’t have until last week), people I met had the information I wanted to share, simply with a tap.

Thirdly, NFC Interactor. This app is one of the handier ones. You can use it to Read a Tag, Save the Tag (so it can be cloned later), and Write to Tag. You can write the following to the NFC tag:

  • Smart Poster
  • URI
  • Text
  • SMS
  • Business Card
  • Social Network
  • Geo
  • App Store
  • Image
  • Annotated URL
  • Custom
  • Combination
  • NFC Interactor Autostart

      What on earth does that have to do with the article?
      There’s at least two proper ways to inform MNB of new stories.

    Say what you may but that godd*mn photo of the N9s on the top of this post still looks a million dollars compared to the other Lumia pictures on the main site!

    The flow of the N9 with the apps open looks much better than the tiles anyday…

    Excuse me for the off-topic and nostalgic post…

      Never a phone had so much love! Truly the N9 is a Unicorn, a peice of the future in our present.

    Nokia N9 design has just won another award: the number one in the British magazine the Mobile Choice ranking in category of design. The ceremony was in London.
    Rewarded was Lumia 800 which uses 100% of Nokia N9 design, but 1 additional camera button. So the winner in fact again is Nokia N9.

    In category of best photo number one was Nokia Pure View 808. PV 808 was 2nd in category of the most innovative device.

    Nokia as manufacturer were 5th, after Samsung, Sony, Asus and HTC.

    So still Nokia N9 rulezzzz…! 😀

  • Fantastic blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you
    knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!

  • You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be actually something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
