Launch 22 System Apps + 36 Settings Pages: Nfc Interactor 1.3

Start into the new year by making your smartphone more efficient with Nfc Interactor 1.3 – the most versatile NFC tag reader / writer app just got more powerful. With a simple tap of an NFC tag, you can now:

  • Launch 22 WP8 system apps (including alarms or even Bing Maps – otherwise hidden on Nokia Lumia devices, which only show Nokia Maps in the menu but in fact have both maps apps installed!)
  • Launch 36 WP8 settings pages (28 additional in the update)

Additionally, the update fixes a small issue that sneaked into the previous release and URL-encoded special characters in telephone numbers – those encodings can’t be handled by WP8 in this use case. Version 1.3 went back to not encoding telephone numbers (but keeps it for the body text of SMS and Mailto tags, where it is required for valid messages).

Nfc Interactor 1.3 is now available for download in the Windows Phone 8 Store.
