Near field communication, or simply NFC, is an emerging technology with endless applicability. Its low battery consumption and simplicity are the keys for to its success. From simple daily tasks such as opening a website, to access control and instant payments, NFC is used everywhere. Manufacturers are starting to include the NFC chip in every smartphone, so it is rapidly becoming accessible to everyone. Now is the time to take advantage of NFC to ensure that your project is a success.
This is a practical, hands-on book, that covers a range of step-by-step recipes, from the very first steps with NFC to some awesome and more advanced real-life applications.
This book will take you through a number of clear, practical recipes that will help you to set up your development environment, helping you to get to know the basics of near field communication and then use what you learn to create more enhanced and practical applications. This book shows you how and where to use NFC.
You will learn how to set up your development and testing environment to use NFC in your applications. The first areas you will cover are reading and writing different tag content types.
You will also take a look at sharing content directly between devices and extending NFC’s functionality through Bluetooth. At every step, you will be presented with fully functional and ready-to-use, real-life examples that will give you an idea of how powerful NFC can be and the benefits it can bring to your applications.
