Near field communication, or NFC, allows for simplified transactions, data exchange, and connections with a touch. A smartphone or tablet with an NFC chip could make a credit card payment or serve as keycard or ID card. The ease of use and secure in nature for data transfer makes NFC technology applicable in wide range of use-case scenarios.
With Google launching its Nexus S phone with NFC capabilities and reports about Apple planning to incorporate this technology in its iPhone 5, it becomes important to explore what this technology has to offer and if we can do any thing to make sure that the apps we develop can make the best use of it. Session will cover details of technology, its current state and its impact on mobile application development, followed by a demonstration of how to build a NFC based TAG reading Android Application
