Introducing the MIFARE SDKThe easy way to develop NFC enabled Android applications

Leveraging the worldwide success of NXP´s product installations, the launch of MIFARE SDK opens up a world of new possibilities for creative Android application developers.
The enormous reduction in development time enables Android app developers to focus on the real important things: designing cool apps for a range of applications like access management, closed loop micropayment, campus cards and loyalty programs.

gvibrac MIFARE SDK Advanced : "Page Forbidden"October 31, 2014 Hello,

When I click on "Click here to go to the MIFARE SDK Advanced.", I log in with my credentials but I have "Page Forbidden, You are not authorized to access this page."

How can i purchase the advanced version of SDK ?


Re: mifare AppidOctober 30, 2014 The lite API actually doesn't have the limitation, you just need to approach the card in a different way.

In your manifest, add an intent-filter with action android.nfc.action.TAG_DISCOVERED for the activity
