What is NFC?

NFC is a short-range wireless technology that's designed for transferring data quickly.

Depending on the applications you have installed on your device and the NFC compatibility of other devices, there can be many interesting ways to use NFC. Here are a few possibilities:
  • Simultaneously exchange contact cards with a new friend or business acquaintance.
  • Pass a picture to your friend by touching the backs of your devices together.
  • Pay for your bus or subway ride.
  • Pay for your morning coffee without taking out your wallet.
  • Grab a coupon from a poster you see on the street.
  • Gain access to your building when you get to work.

These are just a few of the things you can do with NFC. For more, play with NFC on your device, be creative, and see what you can do.
