In Qt 5.4 NFC support is restricted to Blackberry 10. After working on basic desktop support for Qt 5.5 through neard, basysKom decided to kick off NFC support for Android as well.
After two months of work, basysKom has committed Android NFC support to a Qt development branch, based on previous work by Juhana Jauhiainen and colleagues. The patches have passed the review process and we are proud to announce that Qt NFC support for Android will be part of Qt 5.6.
Just so you do not have to take our word for it (or build the dev branches yourself), have a look at the video.
Here you see the NFC corkboard demo from the Qt examples on Nexus 7 running Android 5.0.2 and Qt 5.5 Alpha with our NFC patches. The provided NFC tag has 3 NDEF records – one URI record and two text records. These show up as post-its on the corkboard.
Visit us at the Qt Dev Days 2014 in Berlin.
basysKom will present a QtWebChannel based application supporting both – Qt and web based clients.
