NFC tags and NFC applications. NFC allows two electronic devices to exchange information if they are close to each other. For example, a cell phone can read data off of an NFC tag embedded inside of a poster or business card. An NFC tag contains small amounts of data that can be read by NFC-enabled phones and readers. It's basically a chip plus an antenna, usually embedded within a sticker, card, or poster. NFC tags have applications in advertising, ticketing, payments, events, and as accessories to mobile applications. Tagstand's app NFC Task Launcher makes extensive use of NFC tags, with the belief that near-field technology can reclaim lost seconds and minutes in our day.
