New Contactless payment solution

I am currently finishing a whole news payment solution for every NFC compatible devices.

Easy to use, easy to implement, the solution is simply based on having connectivity between the seller device (or pc with NFC ready peripheral : acrxxx, etc… ) and the buyer.

The buyer sync with a server, the buyer receive the push from the buyer and sync with the server etc… and tada

The solution currently work with paypal and let you having payment solution better than the one you can see in the apple stores B) hey, it is great to say to a customer “you have nfc on your smartphones? you can buy our product directly with your paypal account”

I am open to implement any other solutions, if you are a company and want it, you can contact me per mail to discuss about the condition and to link your project/solution with it (for instance if you don’t want paypal but your own servers, etc…)

Launch an Android Application/Activity when URL are read from NFC tag

What a long title to a simple and really easy system.

But It took me some minutes to find how to manage to open my application activity when a nfc tag is read with a particular url.

Here is the trick :
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.nfc.action.NDEF_DISCOVERED" />
<data
android:host="google.com"
android:scheme="http" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
</intent-filter>

put this between <activity></activity> to tell to the system that the activity can hold the http://*.google.com/* and should start it by default

It will also override the internet browser 😉
