NFC or Near Field Communication is capability of two devices to send data to each other when they are brought into close proximity. Nowadays, it is generally used in form of NFC tags which can be read by mobile devices such as Android based tablets and smartphones. NFC usage varies from launching specific websites or for other actions such as providing Wi-Fi configuration to visitors at a café. And, the availability of NFC encoding apps like Tagster have made them even more versatile and functional.
