NFC interactor 7.1 Brings Live Tag Size and Launches Cortana

Memory is scarce on NFC tags – the new NFC interactor 7.1 update helps you optimize your contents by showing you the live message size while you compose your NFC tag contents. Additionally, the new release adds a bunch of new Windows Phone 8.1 system apps, enabling you to launch the latest features like Cortana or VPN.

Furthermore, the new release combines the previous minor patches that we had immediately released to directly address issues reported by our users. The full change log compared to the previous NFC interactor 7 release:

  • Calculates and shows live message size while composing a tag
  • Launch new WP (8.1) system apps / settings, inlcuding: Cortana, VPN, Storage Sense, FM Radio, Files, HERE Maps, HERE Drive+, MixRadio, Nokia Camera, Nokia Camera Beta, Xbox Smartglass (and many more)
  • Fixes publishing issue when erasing tags with random contents
  • Fixes issue when attempting to add a detail to the Bluetooth Wizard
  • Fixes update problem coming from NFC interactor 6 with data in the “tag composer”


The new NFC interactor 7.1 is available for download for all Windows Phone 8(.1) devices that support NFC. If you have previously purchased the app, it is a free update – your phone will notify you automatically.
