I came across this video and thought that it was very interesting and addressed some great points such as:

What will the future of mobile payments look like?

Will NFC ever become a major player in the world of technology?

Will Google be the next big bank?

What do you think?

If you check-in more than once a week, you need Checkin King.
With one app check-in to Facebook, Foursquare, Google, and Gowalla with Checkin King. Here is what the press is saying about Checkin King:
“Checkin King makes checking in to any or all of those services as easy as one click.” – Phandroid
“How to check in to multiple location services with one click” – CNET
“43 Best New Android Apps” – AndroidPolice.com
Another great way to encourage fans to check in at your establishment is to post a QR Code sticker on your business entrance.  You can order stickers for Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Google Plus, Yelp and more by clicking here

Apple looks to be shunning NFC tech in favour of the more readily- available barcodes, highlighting how easy it is to use the barcode on screen in its latest advert.

The advert, “If you don’t have an iPhone, well, you don’t have an iPhone”, spouts the latest brand message, with the company seemingly keen to point out the obvious.

Not content with telling you just how easy it is to buy a new app (which, incidentally, fails to show you long loading times and password entry each time), Apple tries to convince you that you won’t need the new tech at all, hinting that a screen with different barcodes on it is ample to pay for things at the checkout or check in for a flight.

Of course, it’s Apple’s usual distortion field in action as Android, BlackBerry, and every other mobile phone operating system out there has exactly the same features. But, as the young-uns on the corners in Cupertino would say:

“If you don’t have an iPhone, well, you don’t have an iPhone.”
