Excellent features that the NFC technology brings

NFC was invented based on the principle of identification radio frequency (Radio-frequency identification - RFID) which allows a reader to send radio waves to a passive electronic tag to identify and track. The first invention associated with RFID technology was granted to Charles Walton in 1983. NFC has been approved by ISO/IEC in late 2003.

However, many people still doubt the practical applicatio of NFC. Especially in the market of developing countries, we rarely see anyone using NFC. What are the advantages of NFC and its practical applications? Here, we will go through the benefits that NFC brings.

1.        Transfering photos, video and music between devices

Previously, when you wanted to transfer photos or videos from a device to the other, user or a device uses an intermediary computer. Everything is copied to a computer via USB and from your PC to other devices using a dedicated cable. Doing this is very time consuming, so Bluetooth 4.0 was born and had better support this work more effiecintly.

However, things can be further simplified when NFC technology is applied into reality. Users simply put the two devices together to transfer data back and forth. Samsung Galaxy S III phone has very good support through a feature called S Beam.

Currently, on the market there are many electronic devices equipped with NFC connectivity for users to easily perform tasks such as smartphones, cameras, laptops, and even TVs. You can share a lot of things such as: applications (not .apk files sharing, but instead, the recipient will get the link to the application on Google Play), the URL of the web page, YouTube video links, contacts (shared through your Google account), images, videos available.

2.        Car control

Many automobile manufacturers like Hyundai began using NFC-enabled smartphones to control some of the features on their cars. When you put your phone in the car, the smartphone charger can automatically charge, back up your contacts and connect to the NFC car speakers to play your favorite tracks.

3.        Replace ATM card

4.        Shopping support

The use of smartphones with integrated NFC is also very helpful when a user purchases something in the commercial center. Thanks to the NFC support, shoppers can quickly identify information on the aisles in the store, find out the discount items and promotion through active interaction between the phone and other NFC devices through the center of a supporting app.

Finally, the payment will also be easy as when you withdraw money from an ATM.

5.        Check-in

The user's phone will store the information about them such as name, phone number, where they live, much like a personal identity card. When they go to public places such as airports, schools, theaters, hotels, hospitals, or attend events, security devices that support NFC will interact with the phone to check the information of the user. However, this has not really been widely used because of concerns about confidentiality issues.

Are NFC tags really useful?

In addition to direct interactivity between the two devices, you can interact from your device with NFC tags. NFC tags are mounted with an NFC chip, which can be used to store information such as posters, business cards, labels, stickers, URL ... or even some of the settings for the device. Different types of NFC tags also have different storage capacity.
