This TouchPoint Getting Started App implements the User Interface and provides connectivity for Socket Mobile TouchPoint hardware to read NFC SmartCards, NFC stickers, RFID Tags, and NFC-enabled SmartPhones. The App displays the Number and Card Type, maintains a history of cards/devices read, and manages the Bluetooth low energy connection to TouchPoint. The App also logs Bluetooth communication with TouchPoint – useful to diagnose a complex configuration.
