    Hi everyone,

    I would like to introduce my app : NFC Tools.

    NFC Tools can read and write your NFC tags with a simple and lightweight user interface.
    By passing your device near an NFC chip, you can read the data it contains and interact with the content.

    Free for download here : https://itunes.apple.com/app/nfc-too...2749?at=10l3Vy



    Here a quick video that explain how-to write a simple URL on your NFC tag

    What tags are you getting?

    Can I trigger Siri shortcuts with this tool?
    And/or, can I change the iPhone's ringtone volume?

    (Background of question: automation/shortcut triggering based upon location does not always work reliably for me. So I would eg want to put a tag next to my front door at home to trigger certain actions. Also, Siri shortcuts can't change ringtone volume (which I would like to do when arriving at home), so maybe another app can, and can be triggered by means of an NFC tag based automation?)

    I suggest to get some NTAG215 or NTAG216, they are compatible with all devices.
    Don't use Mifare Classic chips.

    Yes, you can set a Shortcut record.

    You need to configure your profile in the Shortcut app, then use NFC Tools to write the record on your tag.
    It's located in "Write" > "Add a record" > "Shortcut", enter the profile name, then write on your chip.

    Just to clarify, to „set“ or „write“ a shortcut record, does that also mean I can then trigger the shortcut to fire when I get close to the tag with my phone? Is this then your app that does that or what else? Does your app have to be up and running to trigger the shortcut?

    No need to have NFC Tools installed or running once the record is written on your NFC chip.
    You just need to scan your tag and the Shortcut app recognize automatically the record to execute your profile.

    I am intrigued by this concept, and hope that I'll be able to figure it all out!

    Feel free to contact me if you have any question

    Important note:
    You can scan NFC tags without app from iPhoneXS but on iPhone 7, 8, you need a NFC app to read your tags.

    We're happy to announce a new update of NFC Tools for iOS (version 2.5).

    There are two major features :

    • Now, you can create a NFC record from an existing QR Code
    • A new record is also available to make a call with FaceTime, but only with audio.
