About this app

The NFC TagWriter by NXP stores contacts, bookmarks, geo location, Bluetooth Handover, SMS, Mail, text messages and many more to any NFC-enabled tags as well as to items like posters, business cards, watches and many more containing NFC-enabled electronics. Once data has been stored the application allows also reading and viewing the programmed data including options to launch applications automatically based on the contained data.

NOTE: Installing TagWriter on a non-NFC enabled phone is enabled now but it does of course not allow you to actually program tags. Anyhow, you can now prepare NFC data sets e.g. on a large screen device and then share them with an NFC enabled handset to actually make use of them. Besides that you can catch a pre-view on what you could do with a handset supporting NFC.
Please contact us at nfcapp.support@nxp.com if you have problems. We will continue our efforts to add new features for your benefits and we work hard to provide a feature rich application ahead of other apps available in the market.

- Bluetooth to pair and connect devices

- Geo location to open a given destination- File URI to open a file on the device, including file picker UI
- URI to create any kind of URI, also those not directly supported by the NXP TagWriter

It supports a series of configuration options adapting the application to your own needs and preferences.

The application fully supports the NFC Forum Type 1 Tag, Type 2 Tag, Type 3 Tag as well as Type 4 Tag portfolio. This includes a whole range of NXP and third party NFC-enabled contactless IC products like MIFARE Ultralight, MIFARE Classic, MIFARE DESFire, NTAG 21x, NTAG I2C, ICODE SLI & many others.TagWriter supports any NDEF pre-formatted tags for all NDEF operations but formating to NDEF feature is limited only to NXP Tags.

A good app but some issues with Business Cards. When editing not all fields (like the phone number) are displayed. More importantly, no blank Business Card is offered. You can only select an existing contact which is not much use if you want to produce a new one with your own details. So four stars.

Used this to write password protected tags (with 4 character password). Now can't write to them any more and can't remove password (asks me to put in 8 characters minimum)! At least tell people that they have to convert their old ASCII passwords to hex values, or give us the option to specify which we want to enter!

Has major bugs in the uid and counter mirror with URLs. The offset process is wrong. I have wasted loads of time. It just does not work . Has it been tested? One star till fixed :-( Latest update has not fixed the interaction counter issue.
