Mobile hardware and software limitations mean there are some differences between the functionality
available on the Android and iOS versions of the ToolTaggers mobile app that is beyond our control. Each ToolTaggers
subscription allows subscribers to login via the Android or iOS mobile app as well as a web browser without additional
Apple currently restrict access to certain features and functions required to implement the full list of ToolTaggers functionality on iOS devices. While the iOS version of the app allows subscribers to build their own personal tool database and use the rest of the app functionality Apple currently restricts access to Bluetooth and NFC scanning functionality.
Apple devices are prevented from scanning for Bluetooth devices in the background and prevent the application from accessing certain technical information required to identify certain types of Bluetooth devices.
The scanning of NFC tags has been introduced by Apple for iPhone 7 devices and above on iOS 11, however Apple have not fully implemented all of the NFC scanning functionally required to uniquely identify each NFC tag. This means we are not able to release an iOS version of the the ToolTaggers app with onboard NFC scanning until they do. While it is expected that Apple will introduce this functionality at some point in the future we cannot predict when this will be.
For those that require NFC reading capability on Apple devices before this date ToolTaggers have implemented an external NFC Scanner, please contact us for more details and pricing.
The ToolTaggers app is compatible with Android 5.0.1 and above devices which means the full Bluetooth and NFC scanning functionality can be accessed using an older NFC enabled android device. This gives iOS users the option of using either the external iOS NFC scanner or an Android device to scan NFC tagged tools and equipment. All users can scan NFC tags to add them to their account using the ToolTaggers desktop scanning app from a windows PC.

iPhone and iPad users may still manualy enter NFC Tag ID's in to their personal database or they may wish to consider
using an android device to add tags to their account. Any Tag ID that cannot be scanned using a mobile
device can be manually entered via the keyboard.
