Exclamation Important notice about NFC on Android 7.1
Bad news everyone...

Google screwed up the Android 7.1 update. An NFC-related bug blocks you when you want to use an unformatted (factory data) NFC chip.
For example, you've ordered new NFC tags, then it's impossible to write on it... that sucks.

This week, I've worked on a quick workaround for Android 7.1 users.
An update of NFC Tools has been published, with those following version numbers : 4.21.2 for NFC Tools and 3.21.2 for NFC Tools - Pro Edition

When you try to write something on your NFC chip and you get the the message "You have to format your NFC chip!", go to "other" tab then select "Format memory".
The workaround for Android 7.1 will fix the data and force Android to recognize correctly your NFC chip.

NFC Tools

The fix works for this following chips :
  • Ultralight
  • Ultralight C
  • NTAG203
  • NTAG210
  • NTAG212
  • NTAG213
  • NTAG215
  • NTAG216
  • Topaz 512

I've already contacted Google about this problem, and a bug report is opened here :

But it seems like Google don't consider this issue as important...
If you see the problem on your device, I suggest to add a star on the bug report (top left of the web page).
Developers who have the same problem can also post a comment on the bug report.

This is a huge problem and I hope Google will reconsider the priority...
Also, feel free to send me additional feedbacks if the fix doesn't work on your device / NFC chips.

Sorry if this isn't app related. But after I write my nfc tag and launch it, it executes the task I wrote but also opens the most recent app I've used. For example, I assigsd a task to set an alarm, when I scan my tag it sets the alarm correctly but also opens the most recent app I have used

Good news everyone ! But mainly for NFC developers

I just updated NFC Tools and add a new feature for send commands to your NFC chips.
As you can see, you must to understand what you're doing before using it.
It's mainly dedicated to developers or advanced users.
So... please be careful ! Because an incorrect command can corrupt definitely your NFC chip.

This app is really good! The only thing I would love is a more material design look it the only "bad" thing for me, but of course design is personal tastes

can this act on merely reading the unique id and not read stored contents?

kudos to you for intellectual honesty.
