Re: Does NFC need to touch?
You have to tap them together. You can feel the resistance like putting 2 magnets together. You also get an audible chime when they connect. You have to keep the two devices relatively close, 1/4 inch or so during the transfer or it will abort the procedure. I use NFC all the time between my NS4G and Gnex, it works great. If the two devices aren't touching and connected, there is no way anyone can see your stuff.
