"Nokia NFC is a Windows Phone app which allows you to read/write any standard NFC tag. You can create NFC tags to launch applications, check-in to places, update social status, or even make phone calls or send text messages by simply waiving your phone over the programmed tag. 

Once a tag is created you place the tag in a convenient place, then tap your phone to it to perform the actions that have been stored to the tag. While the tags are created using your Windows Phone, they can be read by any operating system that is NFC enabled!"

    I wish NFC could run more than just one task. And how about set currant location to map?

    Far too basic, which may be a windows phone failing. Saves me one button press. What's the point. If I'm being stupid let me know

    Pretty poor, can only select a small of apps, why?

    The idea is to programme NFC tags to 'activate' a command on your Windows 8 mobile, but it's too limited. I wanted to programme a 'tag' to turn on the bluetooth, when I get in my car, so a tag on the dash board would be a good idea, right? Wrong! All it does is open the bluetooth option, leaving ME to turn it on. I have a shortcut 'tile' on my screen for that, making this app completely redundant...

    More functions please, multiple tasks to 1 tag better cross platform and lock tags also to start Nokia drive (now here drive) i get the option for here or gmaps??? Better if the tag would do what you tell it and not half the job? Updates please Nokia.

    Good app but needs to support multi functions then it will get 5stars!

    Superb app. Works flawlessly on Lumia 920. Would like to turn off the option of accepting the NFC tag when used.

    Just not very useful due to Windows Phone's very weak NFC functionality.
