GrantF - Nice tutorial

I am pleased that I found this. It is a good walkthrough on creating a simple application using NFC and Nokia Maps. I did however have some issues with returning information to the UI following scanning tags. I managed to get around it by using the Dispatcher class.

Here is a snippet of my code to show what I did. Just in case this helps anyone else.

Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(() =>
MessageBox.Show("Tag succesfully written!");
