Tap Tag is extremely quick and easy to program using many third party free smartphone apps. Our favorite is "NFC Tools" located in the apple and Android app store. We have created a Youtube Video which breaks it down step by step and we also created a Web Page to walk you through the process step by step.
For the demo below we will be walking you through programming using NFC Tools:
1: Open a free NFC-writing app like "NFC Tools"
2: Tap "Write"
3: Tap "Add a record"
4: Tap "Custom URL / URI" or "Social Networks" to start
- You will notice many more features of the app that you can program. Tap Tag hold 137 bytes which is the equivalent of roughly 35 characters of data. So have fun adding different content. Some features do not work on all phones, For example, you are able to add "WiFi Network" to the Tap Tag but currently all iPhones and most android do not support WiFi credentials through NFC...yet.
5: Input your website link if selected URL, or insert you social media tag if selected. (If you selected Social Media, and then "Instagram" for example, all you have to add is you @ "______________" and not the entire website link)
6: Select "OK" in top right corner, you will see you creation in menu of the next screen, now all you have to do it tap "Write" and hold your phone near Tap Tag for about 1 second. Your phone should make a sound and/vibrate when tag is programmed.
Your NFC apps will always override anything previously programmed on Tap Tag. Our tag can be programmed at anytime and is infinitely reloadable. Most apps offer a way to "Lock Tag" but keep in mind this is 100% permanent and irreversible. We recommend only doing this in a business or public setting to avoid people re-writing your tag. Once Locked everyone will be locked out from writing it including you, whatever info or link was on the tag it will be there forever. Locking a tag voids any refund.
