NFC Talk application demonstrates connection initiation by tapping devices together or by searching for nearby devices over Bluetooth, using the Windows Phone 8 Proximity API, the Windows.Networking.Proximity.PeerFinder and related classes.
The example has been developed with XAML for Windows Phone devices and tested to work on Lumia devices with Windows Phone 8.
This example application is hosted in GitHub: https://github.com/Microsoft/nfc-talk
For more information on implementation and porting, visit Lumia Developer's Library: http://developer.nokia.com/Resources/Library/Lumia/#!code-examples/nfc-talk.html
This is a simple build-and-run solution. Learn about Proximity API usage for opening communication channels to application instances on other devices by trying out the application.

Using the Windows Phone 8 SDK:
- Open the SLN file: File > Open Project, select the file
- Select the target 'Device'.
- Press F5 to build the project and run it on the device.
