NFC Tools can read and write your NFC tags with a simple and lightweight user interface.
By passing your device near an NFC chip, you can read the data it contains and interact with the content.
The "Read" section allows you to see data such as:
- the maker of the tag
- the type of tag (ex : Mifare Ultralight, NTAG213)
- the norm of the tag (ex : NFC Forum Type 2)
- the available technology (ex: NFC A)
- its serial number (ex : 04:85:c8:5a:40:2b:80)
- the size of the tag and of the data on it
- if you can write on the tag
- all the data on the tag (NDEF format)
NFC Tools can record standard information on your tags which will be compatible with any NFC device.
For instance, you can store a VCARD to share your contact details easily, open an URL, share a phone number or even a geolocation.
The "Write" section let you record standardised data such as:
- a simple text
- a link to a website
- an email
- a contact
- a phone number
- a predefined text message
- an address or geolocation
- a WiFi or Bluetooth configuration
- personalised data
- and more...
The write function allows you to add as much data as you wish.
This way you can record large quantities of information on your tag.
The app also allows you to save the contents of your chip for later access.
NFC Tools has been tested with the following NFC tags:
- NTAG 203, 210, 210u, 212, 213, 213TT, 215, 216
- Ultralight, Ultralight C, Ultralight EV1

Great, when it's working
I really like this tool. So far it's my favorite for reading/writing to NFC tags.
Unfortunately, there's a lot of hit/miss for me when used with my NTAG215 tags on my iPhone SE (2020).
Misses can occur often but it's mostly when writing. I'd password protect a tag, remove the password then find that it won't let me write to the yeah anymore. Been able to get around it by repeatedly setting a very basic short password, removing it, then trying to write to the yeah again.
Not entirely sure if this is a fault of the tags (quality?), the phone or the app.
Looking forward to updates.
Went on the App Store for about an hour and this seems to be the only one that tells me everything about the NFC chip as well as formatting and locking it with a password. Only problem I have is it doesn’t let me pair with my Sennheiser 4.40 BT headphones. That however I’m sure is an Apple issue because I’ve looked on Apple’s manual for NFC online and there doesn’t seem to be any documentation for pairing
Simply the best
There is no other app out there with this perfect mixture of easy to understand UI, and data richness. I use NFC data tags for automation all the time and this is THE go to app! Additionally, the developers 100% deserve the funds provided for the pro upgrade and the upgrade itself is well worth the price! This app is fantastic, simply the best!
