This complete step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how you can select a contact from your address book, customize it to contain the info you’d like to share, pin it to a live tile for instant sharing to another device and activating the live tile.
Of course, you can also share a contact directly from the built-in address book – but not as conveniently with one tap like with NFC interactor, and most importantly: only NFC interactor allows customizing the details you actually want to share!
Step 1: Choose type
Start NFC interactor, swipe right to go to the “tag composer” view and tap the “Choose tag type to write” button.
Step 2: Select “Business Card”
Step 3: Open address book to import a contact
Step 4: Choose contact to import
Step 5: Modify details and tap “pin to live tile” button
Make sure you only include the details you want to share – you’re free to edit the contact details, create additional details or remove details you’d rather keep private. The changes you make here are unique to your future live tile, and do not affect your contact in the address book.
Step 6: Customize your live tile
Step 7: Live tile is pinned to your start screen
Optionally adapt the live tile size.
