Last September, Moo.com added a programmable Near Field Communication (NFC) chip to its business cards, enabling you to tap your cards to people’s phones to share contact information.
The company — who is also behind the Facebook Timeline-themed business cards — has now launched a new Android app that lets you add digital information to the soon-to-be released NFC cards.
NFC by MOO allows you to add custom URLs, contact information, map links, social networking profiles, and data from other apps to personalized business cards. These cards aren’t limited to contact details; retailers could link new promotions or show off product catalogs.
While the app is live in Google Play, the NFC business cards won’t be available until April. There’s no word on whether an iOS app is in the works, but considering that the iPhone 5 doesn’t support NFC, it’s fair to assume that this will remain and Android exclusive for the foreseeable future.
If you’d like to be notified when NFC-enabled business cards are available for purchase, you can sign up on MOO’s website.
