Based on the experience of developing several NFC apps and doing NFC developer workshops, I have written several articles that cover specific aspects of Near Field Communication that are otherwise often not too well documented:

  • NFC Developer Comparison
    While many parts of NFC have been standardized by the NFC Forum, the level of platform and developer API support varies.
    This document helps you decide which technologies you can use to achieve a maximum cross-platform NFC use case, as well as if it’s possible to implement your idea on a specific target platform.
  • How to Store Application Data on NFC Tags
    Compares different ways of storing application data on NFC tags, also considering the ability to launch apps and cross-platform compatibility. Many tutorials on the web suggest sub-optimal ways of storing data – read this tutorial to get insights about related NFC standards and why some methods should not be used.
