Is there anyone else having issues with the NFC reader?  
Everytime I use it, my app closes.
Does Microsoft monitor these posts?
Thanks All.

The problem appeared about 3 weeks ago on android devices (no problem on iOS) and it seems that it still hasn’t been fixed...

Hi I have the same issue. It was working on Android 8 and now we have Android 11 phones and it just closes the app. The other NFC tools had no issue reading but I really need this to work with the powerapp.


Have you had any luck on this?

Just got off the call with them.

The caller asked for my App ID and Session ID.
He then said that he would call me back when there is any changes.

He also said engineers are aware of the issue and already working on it.

I will let you know more when I do.

Here are the updates from Microsoft.
App no longer crashes...
App still can't read NFC data.  They are still working on it.
Non crash version of PowerApps available on Monday.

Here is the communication I got this AM..


Greetings for the day and I hope you're doing well!
As previously mentioned, a version of Power Apps that fixes the crashing issue should be available on the Google PlayStore since Monday.
However, we are still working on a fix for the NFC feature not being able to read codes.
I'll make sure to cascade any meaningful update to you as soon as I get any.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to let me know.
