    No NFC apps for Symbian

    Hi all
    Tell me why there is hardly two or three good NFC apps for Symbian.
    Only NFCinteractor - but it is very complicated
    and then Nokia NFC Writer - it's good but there is no option to launch app or change settings by tapping a tag. I think these two things (launch app, settings) are most useful about NFC tags.
    Look at the Windows Marketplace - there are even up to 3 applications which allow user to change settings and launch system or installed apps (Nokia NFC Writer; NFC Launchit; NFC Publisher; NFC actions).
    Why there is no option change settings, launch app inside Nokia NFC Writer for Symbian??? What's the problem?

    Thank you in advanced for reading this.
    I hope someone develops a great symbian application with all these possibilities.

    Starting an application, does this help? On the next page, an app called Situations is mentioned which – once started by an NFC tag – automatically does an action.

    i think there are more apps than you mention, also i remember there was channel/collection dedicated to NFC - i dont know where is it now because of store changes
    but from a quick search of "nfc" you get more than what you mentioned

    However i dont know if its even profitable to develop nfc based games/apps i never heard of big demand for them.

    For some people it is outdated.My next phone after 808 is going to be android or sailfish.Most symbian users already #SWITCH to android though some do switch window.There is even a users who switch to asha as nokia market asha as cheap smartphone and end up complain later on missing "real" smartphone capabilities.From somewhere the statistic I read ,most window users are either from previous feature phone or ios users as most ios users would already get used to the Os restriction and those new smartphone users know nothing about other Oses.Right now from I see,after 1020 nokia is going stagnant.There is nothing more nokia can innovate.Other than making more camera and map apps,nokia is in dead pond.Unlike android which oem can create ui on top of android,nokia have no say on how window should work or look.I see no future with window
