Default Program NFC Tags

With my Moto X, I cannot seem to program an NFC tag...is there a trick to doing this.

I got a Skip and three tags with my Moto X and have quickly learned that I will not use the function the Skip is designed for.

However, I would like to use the three tags for various things.

I have tried using the app 'Trigger' to create tasks, but every time the app tells me to place my phone over a tag to program it (and I place the phone over one of the tags), it takes me directly to the Motorola Skip app to either setup or add another NFC tag to skip....very frustrating.

You need some other tags or use some other device to reprogram these ones (if they're not read-only).

To the OP : moto's skip dot NFC stickers are read-only. They've been locked.

You can find lots of different nfc stickers that are read-write enabled all around on the internet. They're pretty cheap.
If you don't want to use the skip, then it and the dots are pretty useless to you.
