Paris, the 19th of September 2011 – AIRTAG partners with ORANGE to show on its booth at the NFC World Congress 2011 (19/21 September) the first secure NFC Android app on the SAMSUNG GALAXY S2. AIRTAG thus confirms its leadership in NFC technologies and strengthens its mobile strategy.
The application, based on AIRTAG fidBook technology, developed for the Samsung Galaxy S2 NFC, allows users to collect loyalty points and download coupons on their phone, communicating directly with an NFC reader using the “card-emulation mode” using an Orange Cityzi SIM card.
Thanks to its fidBook technology, AIRTAG provides retailers with white-labeled turnkey loyalty apps to mobilize their customer relationship.
“La Croissanterie” app is available on the Android Market and in the Cityzi wallet for NFC Smartphones.
« We are convinced that high-end Android NFC Smartphones arrival on the market is going to drive a consequent usage increase for NFC services in the coming months. The Galaxy S2 offers a great user experience; compatibility with the Secure Element is key to enable massive growth of transactional secure mobile applications (Payment, Transit, Couponing). With this achievement, AIRTAG maintains its leadership on the secure NFC mobile applications market » outlines Jérémie LEROYER, cofounder and CEO at AIRTAG.
