NFC by MOO Android App

What is the NFC by MOO App?

The App is for the Android mobile operating system, and allows you to rewrite data to NFC Business Cards from MOO, or other NFC tags.

MOO making mobile apps? Isn't that a bit weird?

Well, you may think that, but as we start to develop more and more products that merge your offline and online identities, you'll see more and more things like this from us. Don't be scared. It'll all feel normal soon.

What does the app do?

We've designed it to quickly and easily allow you to explore the "third side" of you business cards. We've thought about the sort of uses that an NFC Business Card could be used for. The options in the app are:
1. Write a URL
2. Write a Map Link
3. Link to your social networks (Facebook, Twitter,, Flickr)
4. Write a Phone Number
5. Write a Contact Card (vCard)

How much does it cost?

It's free!

Does it work on all phones?

You need to be on Android v4.0 or above, and you need a phone which is NFC enabled. If you have that, it should. If you run into problems, please let us know. We'll update this page and the Google Play store if anything comes up that you need to know about, or if certain phones are not supported.

Update: Google Nexus 4 devices will run the App, and write to most NFC tags. However, they will not write data to the MOO Beta Test NFC Cards as they use a type of NFC Tag (Mifare Classic) that is no longer supported by the NFC Forum. Our next batch of NFC Cards will be on an NFC Forum comptible tag.

So if you have an App, do you also sell NFC cards?

At the time of writing, we are giving away a free NFC Business Card with every paid business card order. We are also working on a full production pack of NFC Business Cards that you'll be able to buy. We're not quite ready though, and we hope to have them for sale in summer 2013. Keep your eyes peeled for that!
