Bluetooth and NFC: Connected with NFC interactor 7

Connect your Bluetooth accessories with a simple tap: one of the most convenient use cases of NFC. But what if your Bluetooth gadget doesn’t integrate NFC? You can now create Bluetooth handover tags with the new NFC interactor 7!

The new release fully integrates support for parsing NFC tags in existing accessories like headsets, printers or loudspeakers. These can also be cloned, edited or created from scratch – either using the low level editor, or the convenient Bluetooth Wizard.

The relevant specification documents that are relevant for the new app version total 2,753 pages (Bluetooth 4.1 Core Specifation, NFC Forum Connection Handover 1.3). The multitude of scenarios and Bluetooth features require a huge amount of flexibility in the app to correctly represent all options in a user friendly way.

NFC interactor 7 is the world’s first app that allows advanced users to create standard-conforming Bluetooth NFC tags through an easy to use interface, while at the same time offering access to every single configuration detail possible. Thousands of combinations are possible, and it’s easy to save your NFC tag composition for later re-use.

To make the full world of Bluetooth more accessible, we have additionally integrated a Bluetooth Wizard. To create an NFC tag, simply select one of your previously paired Bluetooth devices – NFC interactor automatically retrieves the device address and name. Optionally, you can then choose the device class (loudspeaker, smartphone, etc) from relevant presets. That’s it, your Bluetooth Connection NFC-Tag is ready to use!

The full list of new NDEF record types you can use with NFC interactor 7:

  • Bluetooth Wizard
  • Bluetooth Secure Simple Pairing
  • Handover Select
  • Handover Alternative Carrier
  • Handover Error

Additional New Features

We have updated the record parsing display to make the tag reading analysis results easier to understand – especially important for complex records like for Bluetooth.

In addition, NFC interactor 7 supports 9 new Windows Phone 8.1 settings launch options – including the battery saver, proximity or the notifications & actions center settings.


The new version of NFC interactor 7 is available immediately. If you have previously purchased the app, it is a free update – your phone will notify you automatically.
