NFC, as you might already know, is a wireless technology for short-range communication.
It is already widely used in our daily life. Let’s see some practical use-cases:
- Payment: Apple Pay and Samsung Pay both use NFC.
- Transportation and ticketing systems: for example, the Suica in Japan uses NFC.
- Access control and security systems: lots of applications in this domain choose NFC to be their communication protocol.
- Even in gaming: Nintendo Amiibo uses NFC to exchange data between Amiibo figures and the Nintendo Switch console.
Among these use-cases, we will focus on how to build mobile apps to interact with NFC tags.
