Nfc Interactor is a new app available for Windows Phone that enables users to create and scan NFC tags. The Near Field Communication tag reader / writer app provides the tools for a variety of content to be added to a tag, which can then be scanned by a compatible device that sports NFC capabilities.
NFC tags can be written using a dynamic message editor - including Smart Posters, geographic tags, social networks and LaunchApp tags. Additionally, you can also send your messages to other NFC devices simply by tapping. Neat, eh?
Supported formats include:
- Smart Poster
- Social Networks (Twitter, Facebook, Skype, etc.)
- Telephone call
- Geo Tags (Longitude & Latitude, for opening Maps)
- LaunchApp (for Windows 8 & WP 8)
- Android Application Record
- Nokia Accessories
- Custom records
The core NDEF library of Nfc Interactor has been made available at ndef.codeplex.com (open source), while additional tag types (eg.: business cards) are planned for future updates.
You can download Nfc Interactor from the Windows Phone Store for $1.99 (£1.49). The trial version is limited to reading 10 tags and writing 20 tags.
