Have you ever heard of NFC Tag / RFID Tag ?
They are little stocker with circuit allows you to embed web page address, v-Card and other binary information. If you use your smartphone to pay, you are using NFC Tag / RFID Tag technologies.
We have created http://www.clickitaudio.com
enabling you to embed audio in your web page. You can also access this audio by scanning QR code. As a progression of this technology, I have been experimenting with NFC Tag / RFID Tag to access this audio file.
It sounds easy but NFC Tag / RFID Tag are still in its infant stage and a lot of information are written for programmers ... I have no idea what they are saying. All I wanted to do was to write a home press address to NFC Tag / RFID Tag and have smartphones to access them by just putting your phone close to the tag.
It took many trial but I was able to write to NFC Tag / RFID Tag using PC and Android Phone. iPhone has no capability at this point to write to NFC Tag / RFID Tag. Then I was able to read NFC Tag / RFID Tag using PC, Android Phone and iPhone.
Is it usable as a product?
The biggest problem we have with NFC Tag / RFID Tag is the fact neither Android nor iPhone comes with NFC Tag / RFID Tag reader software. And there are many different NFC Tag / RFID Tag reader software and they all work differently. Unless manufacturers came up with standard NFC Tag / RFID Tag reader software, I think NFC Tag / RFID Tag cannot be used widely.
