Thanks to those of you who took the survey.
Our winner for the device give-away is F Cheng from Proximiant.com
With permission, I am posting her answers as follows;
How long have you been developing NFC apps?- We've been developing NFC apps for a little over a year.
What type of apps are you developing? - We have an app that allows user to tap on an NFC device to get transaction record or other print data to their mobile phone and to organize those content for the user. The app is designed to assist shopping process so there are also other shopping related elements there. The NFC-specific feature, that we use on the NFC-phone side is primarily scanning feature. We will also hugely benefit from P2P features, should there be better stand for it in the future. Right now, we avoided using P2P so that the app can run more consistently regardless which handset maker, or carrier it's running on.
For which mobile OS development framework(s) is your app intended? - Currently our NFC app is on Android. We do have plan to port the app to Windows Mobile as well.
What features are missing in the NFC framework(s) you are using? - As mentioned earlier, we can benefit hugely a more standard P2P protocol. Right now, we avoid it, because of the differences on whether or how it is supported on different handsets. We by pass this matter by taking advantage of card emulation and scanning, with a combination of getting real-time information from the cloud.
