"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!"

    Doesn't do anything (useful) except crash. But it is very good at doing that. All the time. Swore twice to get to page 3? Boom! Crashed. Click a link or store app? Pow! Crashed again. No instructions on NFC use besides the buy link either. And once the "task"is chosen, with all details filled out, there is no "next" or "write" button. No message instructing the user to operate the NFC tag either.

    What's odd is that the screenshots for this app don't match what it has. I do not have the "Search Store" button as an option. I'm very disappointed that this app is so very limited in capability. I envisioned writing tags such as an Excel formula to carry out a series of simple tasks, such as turn off WiFi then start a specific station on my Slacker app, and then maybe turn off email notifications. No such luck. You only get one item per tag and zero customization. Apparently this is due to Windows Phone security? All I can say is I'm glad I only got one tag as a test and didn't buy a dozen. Also, no more support apparently. I'm using a Lumia 928 on 8.1.

    I want to use NFC to turn my bluetooth on and off, in my car without inconvinient interaction with with the phone, but the phone and the software are one step short of success.... I have to turn on the bluetooth myself at the final stage, it saves me a couple of taps but it doesn't present the final solution. It may be good for other thing but who cares when it doesn't work for what you need it.

    Crashes no matter what I do on my 1520

    Awesome. Could you add a feature to add a Cellular data+SIM setting? It would greatly enhance my NFC experience! If multiple commands were an option, that would be great too, although currently limited by the OS.

    Great for creating tags that send you to a website, share an address, or location on a map, but I always viewed the usefulness as being something to send people to harder-to-find places, or non-standard apps (ones that come from the store). I can't find a way to do that with this.
