But there are certain limitations of this technology as its still under development and better results can be expected in near future, this technology works for devices which are located in lesser distance say 1cms to 4 cms and the data transfer rate is very very slow. Infact you can call Infra Red way better than this, but why NFC technology is in much talk and craze? As I said you, going in the future this will certainly improve.

  1. I think the author had some misunderstanding here. Nfc nowadays refers to the tap-enabling data transfer. U dun need any app to do it, the transfer starts right after one device touches the other.

  2. For heavens sake where is the tutorial Mr Patel is talking about in this post. I cannot see a step by step direction on how to do it. Am I missing something?

    1. Just download and open the File Expert, you will easily understand that. And the tutorial is just the two steps as mention in the post.
