Step 1 - Open the app and select the option “Write Tags”

Step 3 - Here you have a list of datapoints. Select “Link” as in this instance we’re navigating to a URL
Step 4 - In the next page you will have to give your new dataset a description.
In our case we’ve written the description ‘Maxbox VR’.
In the field below you will have to write the URL of the website you want the user to navigate to when they interact with the tag.
In our case we’ve written “https://www.maxboxvr.com” this will navigate users to our website
The remaining fields you can leave blank as is on the screenshot.
Step 5 - Confirm
The button “Confirm overwrite” should be enabled, if it not then you should enable it.
Once ready, press the “write” button at the bottom of the screen
Step 6 - The next screen will show a page that says “ready to store”.
Hold the NFC tag against the mobile phone and you should hear a noise of confirmation that both the NFC tag and mobile phone are connected.
Step 7 - The next screen will show a page that shows the NFC details, the URL you want to use and a “Confirm” button.
Before pressing confirm, again, hold the NFC tag against the mobile phone.
Whilst holding, press the blue “confirm” button.
Continue holding until the tag is written, this should take a few seconds and you’re done.
Step 8 - Enjoy !
