Doesn't work on the latest US passport I got my new passport today and wanted to read the info, and check to see if the "only works when it is opened" claim is true. Either my Passport is broke from the US government, my Nexus 4 isn't working right with NFC on Lollipop, or this app isn't able to read the newest US passports. Bummer. Now I have to wrap the entire thing in a tinfoil hat...
What am I doing wrong? It won't do anything. (Galaxy S4 - Lollipop 5.0.1) I have NFC and Android Beam turned on. It would be nice if there were instructions, FAQs or a help file somewhere. My US passport card is 5 years old and has RFID. My US passport book is brand new. It won't respond to either.
5 stars. Ok, I did not remember changing phone since last time. Apparently, the Nexus 5 have no hw-support for mifare classic. (What happend? It used to work, but now it just say that my device don't support mifare classic. (Nexus 5))
Having never used the NFC function of either my N5 or N9 I became quite frustrated when I could not get them to communicate with each other, with the help of this app reading my passport I discovered that the NFC antenna in the N9 is in the upper right hand corner. Now I can send things between the 2.
What I have the same problem as +Merijn Bellekom ... When I try to uninstall this app it automatically reboots the phone so I can't get rid of it.... edit: after it rebooted my phone I didn'T run it and uninstalled it right away and it works. changed my rating from 1 start to 2, once this bug is squashed I will rate it appropriately :3
This version works well for my UK & Italian passport This version works like a charm with my UK and Italian passport! Remember to turn off the autostart feature or the application will kick in every time it detects a NFC / RFID tag.
