Sharing data between devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, and sorry if this is in the wrong place but I just wanted some guidance on the best way for me to share small amounts of data between devices that have my app installed.

    What classes should I be using for this sort of thing ideally?

    Thank you,

    Jib

  • Hi Jib,

    in my opinion there are two technologies you can use: NFC and Bluetooth. An example how you can do an app to device communication via Bluetooth can be found here.
