5 stars. Ok, I did not remember changing phone since last time. Apparently, the Nexus 5 have no hw-support for mifare classic. (What happend? It used to work, but now it just say that my device don't support mifare classic. (Nexus 5))
Doesn't work on the latest US passport I got my new passport today and wanted to read the info, and check to see if the "only works when it is opened" claim is true. Either my Passport is broke from the US government, my Nexus 4 isn't working right with NFC on Lollipop, or this app isn't able to read the newest US passports. Bummer. Now I have to wrap the entire thing in a tinfoil hat...
Works Great Reads and displays tag info like a charm. Test deleted and it really did delete. I reinstalled it and it's now a keeper.
Does exactly what it says And does it well. Huge level of detail about scanned tags - a very useful tool for people who use NFC!
Does not work on htc one m8 App is responsive to all functions EXCEPT its primary one, to initiate a scan. Upon trying to uninstall, phone crashes and reboots.
Can read passports Awesome app! It can even read my biometric passport, with PICTURE :D
Lots of info But could you maybe combine it into a more unified screen instead of pressing buttons to look at little bits? And when listing the read/write, or the ASCII, the byte # is not nessesary, or please make 2 columns, as it is distracting.
"The" NFC inspection app The only reliable app to inspect tags. We use it a lot, to understand why some tags we have work, and others don't. This app is the yardstick: if it can read it, you can use the tag with Android. If not.. use another tag!
They are the breakthrough NFC tag reader This is definitely the best of breed app for tag reading and being an NFC veteran for over a decade, the statement says a lot.
Do not install!! App works as advertised, but once installed it will crash & reboot my phone when I try to uninstall it. I can't remove it!
Great tool Shows pretty much all the information on any NFC card. I was able to read HEX codes off of a NFC subway pass. Big props for being a truly free app with no ads or paid features.
Impossible to remove This didn't play well with another NFC app so I decided to uninstall it. Half an hour later and I am still trying to uninstall it. Seems to be a common problem.
Didn't work now ever time I try to uninstall reboots phone and stays on!
Now it's forever in my phone! Cannot uninstall it
WORKS Need a way to open saved files though
Don't install it It restarts your phone when you want to uninstall it.
Cant uninstall I try to uninstall this and it just reboots the phone. Whats that all about?
No longer works on rooted devices
Very Nice Application Can read all tags
What I have the same problem as +Merijn Bellekom ... When I try to uninstall this app it automatically reboots the phone so I can't get rid of it.... edit: after it rebooted my phone I didn'T run it and uninstalled it right away and it works. changed my rating from 1 start to 2, once this bug is squashed I will rate it appropriately :3
Blocks other nfc apps
Nice Showed me at least some info where some famous tools failed to.
Could improve a bit Please get rid of the Eclair buttons. This app needs a small facelift. Also display that the tag has encrypted content without the need to go to a submenu. It should be on the main screen.
Great tool Support a great range of protocol. This app is also reliable and let you save tag as xml.
Versatile tool Easy to use and gets the job done.
The best one i could find, easy to use for everyone who doesn't know every rf id protocol
Works for me Does what it says on the tin. Ideal for developers
Good app Does what it's supposed to. Small file size.
The absolute best.
Works as described Factory Nexus 7 16GB, installed without a problems, reads 3 recent issued US passport booklets. Haven't succeeded in reading passport cards. This app and another won't read the US passport book if the book is kept shut even if opened to 90 degrees. I'm not sure if more sensitive readers will do better. The only way it worked was if the book was opened near flat opened so the long axis of the book was parallel that of the Nexus, and oriented in one direction, turning it upside down, sideways, or partial contact resulted in no reading. The Tag info say the passport now uses standard 256 bit RSA encryption compared to what is often discussed on the web as being weaker lesser bit encryption.
To all of you wining about this apps not working Take a good look at what chip you have in your mobile. On S4 Samsung have replaced the chip (NXP PN544) with a Broadcom chip that is NFC complaint. MIFARE-chip, like PN544 is NOT NFC-complaint. This is a great program. Judge the app, not the phone.
Reads just about everything This is a really useful app, and well worth having for anyone working with NFC chips. There's a trick to reading UK passports: place the passport on a table with the front cover facing down and the spine to the left (you should be looking at the back cover). Place your phone on the back cover, with the top of the phone (the speaker) centred along the bottom edge of the passport. Wait a minute or so for NFC TagInfo to read it. This worked for me with my Nexus 4.
Russian metro. An update on the user who mentioned the app not working with a Russian metro card: I just tried this app with a Moscow Troika metro card on a Nexus 4. NFC TagInfo identified the card as using the Mifare Classic 4k protocol with the message "Mifare Classic is not supported on your device!" A quick search confirms that this is a hardware limitation. Seems like the App is working great, and it correctly called out the protocol as unsupported.
Lights up Skylanders This app lets me light up Skylanders using my phone. Neat little party trick; does exactly what I need it to.
App is great! My tag is not. If the new NFC tag I just got in the mail isn't being detected by this app (or other NFC apps), what does that mean? Do I have a bad tag? Is there some sort of way I'm supposed to turn the tag on?
Doesn't seem to read UK passports Detects my passport's chip but gives an authentication error, even though the access keys are set up. Seems to work okay with other types of chips.
Doesn't work? Tried with Russian metro and I get nothing coming up
No menu button on S5 Good app but I can't get into settings as there is no physical button on the phone and nothing on the screen
Thx Very helpfull app for NFC development. Thnx very much.
Works! The only app for development and just fun purposes.Works good.shows not only info, but read/write rights
Awesome! Please, add write hex-data to cards function.
Can't download application. Can't download application. Progress just stop on 100% and norhing happed.
Bug I Can't set 01/04/YYYY in sccess keys setings
more access keys need for bio passport, example. mine, my wife, etc =) and in other kind of - apps is good!
This version works well for my UK & Italian passport This version works like a charm with my UK and Italian passport! Remember to turn off the autostart feature or the application will kick in every time it detects a NFC / RFID tag.
1.09c still eats battery From the permissions list: PREVENT DEVICE FROM SLEEPING Allows the app to prevent the device from going to sleep.
AVOID THIS APPLICATION. Cannot uninstall application crashes my phine evrytime I tried to uninstall.
What am I doing wrong? It won't do anything. (Galaxy S4 - Lollipop 5.0.1) I have NFC and Android Beam turned on. It would be nice if there were instructions, FAQs or a help file somewhere. My US passport card is 5 years old and has RFID. My US passport book is brand new. It won't respond to either.
Not credit cards Looks good but not a cc reader
Does not work on Nexus 6
Works but menu button? There is no menu button in newer androids so can't get into options of this app
Having never used the NFC function of either my N5 or N9 I became quite frustrated when I could not get them to communicate with each other, with the help of this app reading my passport I discovered that the NFC antenna in the N9 is in the upper right hand corner. Now I can send things between the 2.
Didn't work on Xperia Z3 Compact
Do not remove tag, This may take up to a minute ... and it took forever
Didn't scan anything. Almost like my nfc is broken, but works just fine with other apps.
Crashes Crashes when scanning
Travel Card Thank god. I had washed my opal card (mifare classic 1k) and thought i totalled it. (Uninstalled this due to using nfc pro tools) but instead, i installed again, tapped my card and was pleased to see it wasn't destroyed. Thanks dudes!
Garbage app. Crashes my phone when I try to uninstall
I can't seem to get this to read my US passport on Android 5.0 (Nexus 6). I get Authentication error. Warning processing: State of non-volatile memory has changed / No information given. The MRTD keys are correct. I was able to get it working with an older phone though, although the NFC is weak.
Nice job I can read any acess permission on the card. Awesome.
Perfect for those developing NFC devices.
Good app. Very helpful to check to Mifare/DESfire cards
