Windows App Software Integration

Calling an External Application

The GoToTags Windows App has two powerful features which together allow an external application to use the Windows App to read an NFC tag’s data when read. In this setup the Windows App serves as a proxy between the NFC tag and the external application. The NFC tag data is written as JSON to the file specified. When an NFC tag is read the Windows App will call the external application. This external application can be any application; often users will use a Windows batch file which is written to use the results file. Note that the external application is called when the NFC tag is read, not when the NFC tag is on/removed the NFC reader.
