"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!"

    Crashes on Lumia 720

    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. I'm using a Lumia 928 on 8.0.

    Good I guess, but all around useless since you cannot really toggle settings or do anything other than launch some apps etc. If you are thinking of buying NFC tags to do something funky or toggle settings, Windows Phone isn't that sophisticated.

    Crashes with every action on Lumia 925 running wp8.1 developer preview.

    I would like a tag that takes me straight to audio, the equalizer and what not, or to just settings in general.

    Works, but boring as hell. No ability to launch multiple commands, or define settings
