very good
I’ve been using this app for a long time now and its has been amazing so far. there are 2 missing features though. the first one is not being able to read some cards. my iPhone would simply ignore some tags (I tested this with some NFC cards which are not credit cards). the second feature is it would be nice to write data exactly as its saved in the Saved Tags section

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

Totally awesome!! 👍👍
NFC Tools is totally awesome and I like the idea of going digital on the old school identification tags, such as dog tags. You can get creative and put your own information on the NFC sticker that is affixed to an old fashioned dog tag. I like the fact that you can do a mixture of old school and new school with NFC stickers too… Way to go and keep up the great work. 👍👍

Connection Error. Please Try Again.
Gave it an extra two stars (3): (1) no crashing despite ugly UI. (2) C+ for effort to support the feature count. Appears it may provide a decent adhoc tool for intermediate-level features and utilities. However, it’s unknown to me if those features are operable using NFC/RFID tags/chips unowned by me. Upon attempts to read my NFC/USB-C Titan Security Key (Model: K40T), this application for the last two years has not been able to read it. Begins scan, after tapping the key against the top of device it successfully recognizes the NFC device and shows error message 'Connection Error. Please Try Again.' This fails every time, despite evident operability of the key on same device, and precisely using the NFC communication with other applications.

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!

Works perfectly
Works for everything I want and the pro is a one time purchase which I really appreciated. If it had been a subscription I would have deleted the app immediately.

Easy to use, but Business Card functionality on iOS limited
Very simple and user friendly, but trying to use this to setup business cards for iOS and won’t automatically work. Will have to use another workaround to share contact info

Works well for some things
This app does well and does most of the jobs, I’m having issues with programming my tags to add a contact or add my WiFi, but it does well with going to websites or social media profiles and even. Venmo. Please fix the add contacts option… that would be amazing if that actually worked since I’m using this for networking events.

This app is quick, easy to understand, and does what it says it will do every time. I love it! It made writing my new nfc cards so easy. I can write a url onto a new card in under 30 seconds from start to finish.

Reads and writes!
It actually works, I use these at work, I copy the work nfc tags and write them on my own tags, to make things simpler. All it needs is a folder feature to organize different saved tags.

Has Contacts Access without grant
Somehow this app, newly installed, has full and complete access to my contacts (in the write tag section). I did not grant this access, and the app is not even listed in Settings > Privacy > Contacts so it is not possible for me to grant or deny access to my contacts. This is a privacy breach and should not be possible on the latest version of iOS. I have reported this to Apple to investigate as well. Please explain.

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.

Doesn’t Write Contacts (Please Fix)
I really do like this app. Unfortunately it claims to write contacts on tag however phones cannot read them. Please let me know if there is something I may be doing wrong. Using and manufacturing NTAG216’s.

Just label the app for $3.
I don’t mind paying for any app, but when they trick you into a paid “Pro” version, I’m out. It’s not pro when the free version of the app is worthless. It’s just an ad at that point! And it seems people are complaining for two years that contact info cannot be scanned. Has this been fixed?!? Would like to use the app, but not looking good.

Not Reading After Writing Contacts
Tried to go through the support page but it reset me back to the beginning so I’ll post here hoping to get a response. I have two different types of NXP NTAG215s some are cards some are dots. I used the app to write contact information on them, but it seems that the phones can’t read it. I’m using an iPhone 11, and it does work for website links, phone numbers, etc. it’s only when I try to write a contact, it says “complete”, but no other phones can read it. Anyone else having this issue?

Hotel cards or entry cards don’t work
This works on any personal nfc chips that don’t have data. If your trying to get a key card to enter work or some hotel rooms it won’t work from my experience. I get a message pop up that says “Oops! We cannot find any compatible record to write.”

Horrible experience
I’m sorry to say this, but i had an extremely bad experience with this app. It’s hard to navigate, and doesn’t do what i expected it to do. You can’t upload your own files on here and i paid $2 trying my hardest to figure out a way i could upload a small simple file and it ended up not being able to do that. I am extremely disappointed.

Functionality incomplete
It doesn’t write contacts or WiFi records in a way that an iPhone can automatically read. Haven’t tested all record types yet, but those 2 are big ones to not get right.

I can’t add a record with wpa2 enterprise wifi settings because it only asks for the ssid and password, while wpa2 enterprise uses account and password combinations to authenticate

Almost perfect
The app itself is easy to use and works like a charm. I only wish that instead of asking for a records file path that there could be an explorer of sorts to pick out a specific file.

Hate it
Don’t work, don’t get this app there is other apps use those. This app does nothing you have to get the “pro” version when I say it does nothing I mean it it will act like it is going to scan a d if can’t find anything you have to get pro but it doesn’t even advertise the pro version.

Able to read memory, but unable to edit & then write memory blocks of NFC213 tags.
This is one of the few apps I have found that reads and can show you the memory blocks of NFC213 tags. But the app is not allowing me to edit and write those blocks on my iPhone XR.

Did not work
I just needed it to detect credit card chips so I can check the effectiveness of my allegedly RFID-protected wallet. I hit the "read" button, aimed all 4 sides toward the card almost touching; when that failed, then laid the phone completely on top of the card, both face down and face up. Nada. Deleting.
