NFC is short for Near Field Communication, which is a technology that enables two communicators to exchange information wirelessly over a short distance. This might sound very similar to bluetooth, however there’s a crucial difference. While bluetooth works great between two devices (e.g. two smartphones), NFC doesn’t necessarily need two active devices. NFC can do more! It also supports the communication between one device and a passive tag.
You might have been using NFC already and are not aware of it. NFC technologies have arrived in our everyday life and are used, for example, in tickets for public means of transport and ski lifts and also as keys.
Have you ever found yourself replying to a text message or an email during a business meeting or a dinner conversation? Let me tell you, Emily Post would not be amused with your behavior. Neither would she like to hear that 3 out of 4 adults text while driving nor that 63 % of Americans answer phone calls while going to the bathroom. However, this seems to be the inconvenient truth about our mobile manners of today.
As we‘ve already mentioned in our last mysms insights blogpost about our new office in Sunnyvale, CA, we also moved our headquarters to a new office in Graz, Austria. On a very summery Friday in June the whole team packed their traps and left the old mysms masonry.
We’re experiencing exciting times here at mysms! A couple of weeks ago we officially launched our mysms apps globally and since then we haven’t slept a bit. A whole lot of new users all over the world have joined us and many international tech blogs covered our story. We are very happy and grateful about the massive support we’ve got from all of you! To let you all take part in the happenings around mysms of the last two weeks, we’d like to present you what’s been written about mysms on international blogs and social media.
