Is it possible to add support for nfc with this app. I would like to be able to store my bookmarks on nfc tags then use 2cloud to automatically ship the url to chrome once the tag is read.

    Hi Ken!

    Thanks for the suggestion. :) NFC is something we've thought about a lot, and right now there are only two real barriers to us implementing it.

    The first, and most important, is we just don't have a test device. We can't afford to buy a new Android phone at the moment, so we need to wait for the project to be bringing in income before we can consider purchasing an NFC-capable device. Which is something we'd need before we could develop an NFC-capable app ;)

    The second is that we're just not sure how it should work. Would you like to be able to encode the URLs on tags, or would you rather encode devices on tags? Or both? Would you want us to sell the tags online?

    It's definitely a space we're excited about, but we aren't quite ready to enter it just yet.

    Thanks,
    Paddy
