These days using a WiFi connection isn’t the only way possible for transferring data from one device to another. As you know, most of the Windows 8 devices are coming with NFC support, so by using the mentioned protocol you can easily establish a proper connection between different devices like tablets, laptops, or desktops. In case you want to learn which NFC apps works best on the Windows 8 platform, don’t hesitate and take a look over the list from below.
NFC or Near Field Communication represents a short-range protocol used for contactless communication between various devices. You can understand NFC as a simplified WiFi connection, though the terms are quite different. In order to establish the mentioned connection both Windows 8 devices must have support for NFC. You can use this connection for exchanging data but only on a short range distance (less than 2 cm). Of course with NFC you can transfer only small amount of data, but the service is quite useful especially when you need to get something quick and by using high-speed data transfer.
Anyway, if you want to properly use NFC on your Windows 8 device, then check the list from below and learn which app to download from Windows Store in order to enjoy a stable and proper connection.
