Develop NFC Enabled Applications with TracerPlus
More Secure than a Bar Code. More Affordable than RFID.
NFC Scanning Apps.
Easy to Develop.
Easy to Use.
And already integrated into your Android devices.
NFC scanning is much easier to use due to its tap-and-scan technology. While barcode scanning requires you to hold your device or the barcode just right to capture the code, NFC requires only a light tap of the tag-embedded item to your device.
With Android phones, there’s no need to purchase a special reading device because NFC scanners come standard. Simply tap your Android device to an embedded NFC tag and you’ll pull data from the ID card, ticket or label.

NFC vs. UHF RFID Technology Basics
As a subset of HF RFID, NFC operates at 13.56 MHz and typically requires very close proximity to scan - 1 to 6 inches. NFC radios are low cost and can be found on most smartphones.
While UHF operates at 856-960 MHz and a has a much larger range depending on the tag and the reader - between 1 to 40 feet - the technology is much more expensive requiring specialized readers compared to consumer grade devices.
