Afternoon Flomio family,
I am quite pleased with everything here on the website I have seen thus far and have a few questions before placing an order.
The first is regarding the iOS SDK. In a previous thread you mentioned the NFC Actions App for the iOS won\’t be ready for a few more weeks, what it\’s current state? The majority of the order will be intended for 3 iPhone 4s and one 3gs user and we are curious how we will be able to easily read/ write our tags with the FloJack and our Mac based infrastructure.
Is NFC Actions for the Andorid, available here: https://play.google.com/store, the only standalone reader/ writer program to be able to write to tags without having to write any code?
And finally, if I write a tag with NFC Actions based for the Android, will my FloJack plugged into my iPhone be able to execute its function and vice versa writing a tag with NFC Actions developed for iOS and read by a PC based phone.
Hope to hear back from you soon.

Hi Duncan, thanks for the feedback. The NFC Actions app for iOS is coming along well and will be submitted to the Apple App Store for review by then end of the week. The App will let you read and write NFC tags with NDEF formatted messages, but keep in mind that the data rate of the Audio Interface is limited to (more details here):
- iPhone3G & 3GS – 12 b ytes/sec
- iPhone4G & 4GS – 31 b ytes/sec
- iPad2 & iPad3 – 80 b ytes/sec
The NFC Actions app on Android works in the same way as that on iOS. It’ll let you read and write NFC tags without having to write any code. If you use our Cloud Actions feature you can manage your tag experiences from our website (currently in beta). This is more powerful since you’ll be able to write web apps to control tag interaction results.
Tags written with NFC Actions on Android or iOS are indeed interoperable!! So you can write tags with your iOS device and expect any other Android or iOS device to properly read it. URLs, App Store links, Contacts, Phone numbers, SMSs, etc.
