Enable the NFC feature



I was wondering if you're planning to add this functionnality to the Framework.

This could be very interesting and many scenarios could result from it, such as in the industry!

I know that this feature is not necessarily present on all phones but having the possibility to access the NFC reader as well as the camera could be interesting!

I'd love to have the ability to use this my apps!

I stumbled across this quite by accident. I can't find any documentation for this and can't understand why Microsoft would neglect to mention something with so much potential.


The ReadNFC() function returns the following:


  • .Text
  • .RTD
  • .TNF
  • .URI

I was able to use them by calling the function with the On Select of a button setting a variable

Set(varNFCtag, ReadNFC().)

What I really wish I could get is the tag ID, preferably in hex.

Too bad it is only usable on mobile!
