NFC apps appear on Android
Android’s OS updates have introduced early NFC capabilities to the devices, and we’re already seeing the first developments appear on the Market. NFC World brings word of Taglet, a Japanese language NFC tag reader and sharing app, which works kind of like a QR code combined with a URL shortener. It pulls up all associated data on a tag, and can be associated with a given action, such as tweeting or sending data to a friend.
The second NFC app discussed is EnableTable, a US-developed app that lets restaurants give discount vouchers to customers when they pay their bill. It keeps the voucher in a mobile folder that contains their customer activity associated with that venue, adding a few personalized features to the concept of a brand loyalty program.
