App for file transfer over Wifi using NFC

    Hey,

    So NFC is a new feature which is going to be supported in all androids in the near future. It has so many applications but the best is to share something with your friend in the same room instantly. This is made possible by various apps such as BluenNfc(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fiteam17.bluenfc&feature=search_result#?t=W10.) This app uses NFC to do a connection hand-over to Bluetooth which then transfers the file. However, this is slow and can be annoying for large files. Using the same idea, if the connection hand-over was done to Wireless LAN instead of Bluetooth, the transfer would be much faster! I'm suggesting maybe NFC can do a hand-over to the email app on your phone and automatically transfer so that once you touch two phones together, it happens within a few (4-5) secs.

    Can anybody come up with an app for this? I could really use it.

    It sounds like you need WiFi Direct to me. Too bad it it seems to be broken in every android device I've ever tested.

    Dear BobPaul,
    Actually I'm looking for an App that allows NFC to make the device enter the wifi network and automatically start a file transfer similiar to the app mentioned above which uses bluetooth. Wifi direct, though effective, doesn't use NFC.
