Oyster Card NFC support!

By Jan Kopanski

I mean we've already got our credit cards on there so there's not much point in carrying a special travel card around when it could be put on your NFC enabled phone, e.g. Samsung Nexus, Samsung Galaxy SIII etc. One less thing to carry around when you've always got your phone!

    Nice idea until your mobile device runs out of power.

    At least the card is a passive device and will always work!

    Might be better as a sticker that you could stick on/inside the phone like the Barclay’s NFC solution…

    I share your wish, but this seems to be the reason why TfL aren’t rolling this out yet:

    Barclays tried this – at one time you could get an Oyster card on a credit card.
