Near Field Communications.(NFC) is a method to pass data between two mobile devices using a gesture. Just by touching two phones NFC makes a connection without cumbersome pairing or error-prone use of PIN codes.
NFC uses Microsoft Proximity API which is shared by Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 platforms . NFC enables sharing data and apps by tapping two phones together. Data can be photos, URLs, apps, and more. NFC can also be used to launch apps and to start automatic acquisition of content. For example: multi-user games.
