how to Write NFC Tags
Below you can find the available mobile Apps to write NFC Tags.
If you want to encode NFC Tags with a computer, instead, you will need one NFC reader / writer. See description of each NFC writer for information about drivers and softwares.
If you don't want to write NFC Tags, we offer the Encoding service: we write the NFC Tags the way you want.
NFC Apps to read and write NFC Tags
If you are interested in NFC Tag , you most likely have an Android SmartPhone or tablet. In this case, we recommend the App developped by Shop NFC:
- Easy NFC Writer, very simple to use, totally free, it allows you to write an URL, simple text, or a V-Card contact on your NFC Tags, which will be readable by all NFC devices, with every Operating System. It can also provide information about an NFC Tag's Chip (type of Chip, UID).
Alternatively, there are also the following apps, also free:
- Trigger (formerly known as NFC Task Launcher) is perfect for private use of NFC Tags.
- NFC Bulk Writer, available on Google Play for € 4.99
In the Apple Store, there is a very intuitive and functional application:

For BlackBerry, we recommend the app below, which is compatible with BlackBerry Z10, Z30, Porsche Design P9982, Passport and Passport Silver Edition. It's completely free.
For those Nokia phones which don't run Windows, unfortunately there is not much choice. It seems the only available app is the aforementioned NFC Interactor, which is not free. According to Steve Litchfield, it would be compatible with different models Symbian, including C7 and N9.
