Enabling NFC solutions

Attido Mobile developers of the PassWallet app, and Skycore LLC, developers of the codeREADr app have announced the capability for PassWallet passes to be presented and redeemed using NFC-enabled Android devices.

Passbook creates a centralized mobile wallet for consumers to access these passes when needed. Each pass contains a unique barcode which is scanned at the point of service to validate or redeem the pass. Since Passbook passes are not natively supported on Android or BlackBerry devices, Attido created the PassWallet app to enable consumers to view, store and use passes on those devices. codeREADr is a provider-agnostic app for iOS and Android devices which scans barcodes so merchants, venues, schools and enterprises can securely validate and redeem passes presented on any mobile device or on any print media. Passes stored within PassWallet normally present pass IDs as barcodes for scanning but can now also beam pass IDs via NFC and have those IDs validated and redeemed with the codeREADr app on NFC-enabled Android devices.

“Apple created the Passbook standard for card, coupon and ticket delivery to iOS devices. My team built PassWallet to fill the gap for the Android platform. We then expanded the technology to support NFC redemption on Android through our partnership with the codeREADr team,” said Andy Nugent, Director, Attido Mobile.

“Beaming NFC passes has the potential to eventually offer a fast, secure and seamless tap-to-validate process for passes. As the technology matures and becomes broadly available, we expect consumers will find convenience in a simple tap,” said Rich Eicher, Skycore’s CEO.
