    Near Field Communication (NFC) is a set of short-range wireless technologies, typically requiring a distance of 4cm or less. NFC operates at 13.56mhz, and at rates ranging from 106 kbit/s to 848 kbit/s. NFC communication always involves an initiator and a target.

    This tutorial covers the following areas:


    • How to parse the data from the NFC tag. This is abstracted as the NdefMessage object



    • How to simulate a Tag Discovery event in an emulator



    • How to process a Tag Discovery intent within your Activity
