Xamarin.Forms + NFC

NFC (Near field communication) is a short-range radio technology that enables communication between units (devices) without direct physical touch. We can use it, for example, to create paperless tickets, access controls, cashless payments, and car keys.

It is pretty simple to integrate these functionalities in our native apps and we can find dozens of tutorials on how to do that but what if we’re developing our app using Xamarin Forms?

Well, the bad news is that it gets a little trickier as you have to implement an Interface an write code for both Android and Windows Phone, but the good news is that I’ve already done that for you!

So you wanna read and write NFC tags?

Sure!

Just install this Nuget, follow these instructions and you will be able, with few lines of code, to read and write your tags!

Have Fun! 😀
