Subject Re: NFC API at W3C
Date Tue, 21 Jan 2014 00:06:01 GMT
I have an existing NFC plugin
https://github.com/chariotsolutions/phonegap-nfc

I'm hoping to implement a new plugin based on the w3c spec to help work out
some issues.

If anyone is interested in helping with the new implementation or has
feedback on the w3c spec let me know.
