    Yep, NFC is fun to play with. I’m currently developing NFC applications on Android at work. I’m also playing with a third party iPhone cover that provides NFC functionality. The manufacturer provides an SDK and it’s pretty straight forward.

    Apple doesn’t believe in NFC, but have instead gone with Bluetooth Low Energy with iBeacon. BLE has some advantages – longer range, no need for a scan gesture. The longer range allows for some applications that can’t be done using NFC. One example that keeps coming up is indoor navigation. Proximity triggers are also better for home automation compared to having to scan a tag. I used to get my computer to unlock itself simply by walking into the room. The computer would detect that my phone is within range and run whatever scripts I asked it to.

    It’s not inconceivable that in the near future you’d walk into a shop wearing your Google Glass, look at a rack of t-shirts, and Glass tells you that your size is unfortunately sold out – but you can order some online right there and then if you’d like. All without having to rifle through the rack.

    So, BLE has more potential applications than NFC. However, NFC does have one advantage: BLE devices need to be powered whereas NFC tags don’t need to be.
