Despite some news reports proclaiming NFC credit cards can be read by passing strangers, in my experience the card has to be in close contact with the back of the phone to get a good read.
Out of paranoia, this app censors credit card info and the content of "track 2 equivalent data" as I would hate to release something that could be used for evil.
This app has only been tested on UK cards, with a Galaxy Nexus so may not work on other credit cards. The app does not save or transmit any of the read data, but you use it at your own risk.
See demos on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/SiliconCraft

* NFC-enabled Smart Phone
* Android 2.3.3 or later version
(Even after meeting the above conditions, some or all of the functions may not work in some cases because of the smart phone’s specifications.)
How to Use:
When each menu option is selected and the reader/writer is touched with Smart Tag, the process starts. To perform another operation, first release the tag from the reader/writer.
*Show demo images
Sample images will be displayed on Smart Tag starting from the first registered image. The image will switch each time you touch.
The camera takes a picture and it is displayed on Smart Tag. (After taking a picture, touch Smart Tag.)
Enter a sentence and show it on the display area of Smart Tag.
When you touch with your finger [Touch here to input . . .] the input screen will be displayed.
Go to the next line after about 10 characters per line.
Up to 4 lines can fit into the display. (It takes a few seconds to communicate with Smart Tag.)
*Register current image
Register the image displayed on Smart Tag. Specify numbers 1 ~ 12, then touch.
※Smart tag only.
*Show Registered image
Images that have been registered in Smart Tag will be displayed. An image will switch each time you touch.
※Smart tag only.
Write text into Smart Tag memory. Touch “Tap here to input…” to change to Entry screen.
Read the text in Smart Tag memory and display on the screen.
Save the URL in the Smart Tag memory. The web address can be changed by touching the URL on the screen.
Read the URL that you saved in the Smart Tag memory and open the web. (When Smart Tag is touched, the web browser starts to access the page.)
The Android logo will display on Smart Tag.
(It takes a few seconds to communicate with Smart Tag.)
Clear Smart Tag display.

While we test our app prior to releases, there might still be some errors that cause unexpected behavior and functional interruptions. If you happen to find such misbehavior please help us by providing a so-called "crash report". You can also file bug reports or feature requests using our issue tracker: http://issues.mroland.at/
* NFC TagInfo does not store data retrieved from tags on persistent memory without explicit user consent.
* NFC TagInfo does not transmit data retrieved from tags across the Internet.
In AppOps settings you can restrict permissions that you granted to apps during installation time. KEEP IN MIND: Restricting permissions may BREAK the functionality of some apps and might even cause apps to crash.
This launcher app has been tested with Android 4.3 (Nexus 4, Nexus 7) and Android 4.4 (Nexus 5).
Known issue with Android 4.4: If you leave the AppOps settings by pressing the home button, AppOps settings will be shown the next time you open the "Settings" app. You can get to the other settings by pressing the back button.
