NFC file transfer

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to create a windows application for file transfer through NFC. I have Sony RC-S380 nfc reader/writer device and my windows 8 machine is able to detect it as a proximity device. I am new to NFC and wonder if i need to create an application for the phone as well to receive the transferred file. I have got a code sample on msdn which is working with NFC tag but not with a NFC enabled device. 

    https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsdesktop/NFC-Editor-529ccda6

    My requirement is to transfer the images from windows surface to any smartphones(Android and Windows). Please suggest a proper approach for this.

    Regards,

    Ranjan Kumar

  • Yes, you need an app which will receive on the phone side. In Windows Store apps, it's called Proximity and there's a sample here:

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
