Besides educating Nokia customers of the benefits of NFC technology out of the box, we also ensure that Nokia NFC phone customers can take advantage of a growing number of apps that leverage NFC in an easily accessible way.
The Nokia Store NFC Apps Collection
Instead of customers having to look for different applications where they can put this technology to use, we’ve made the work for them… We are constantly on the lookout in our publishing system for apps utilising NFC and make sure they are all accessible in the Nokia store at an arms lenght – the "NFC Apps" collection. Users can find all the latest and greatest apps using NFC by simply going into the Categories section of their Nokia Store client using their NFC enabled phone, or browse the content from the Store web front.
Incentive for developers
Not only is this good news to consumers, I beleive it’s a really good incentive for developers. The NFC Apps collection gives NFC applications much sought visibility in the storefront, making it more likely for users to discover it.
How to get your app featured?
For Apps to be featured in the NFC Apps collection, publishers need to make sure that our system can identify that the application published is using NFC. To do that they need to include the keyword "NFC" in at least one of the following metadata areas before submitting the Content Item to Nokia Publish Quality Assurance:
- Application Name
- Application Description
- Keyword metadata
