Nokia's DVLUP programme provides incentives for developers to create applications for Windows Phone by offering a 'game' in which experience points can be earned through the completion of set development challenges. The latest of these challenges involves the creation of an NFC-enabled application.


The 'NFC Hunter' challenge calls for developers to create an application that uses NFC tags in a scavenger hunting scenario. Users who scan the tags must be awarded points, with the first person to scan a tag preferably receiving a larger allocation of points compared to subsequent tag hunters. Other conditions for submitted applications can be found on the challenge page.

The challenge will run for 30 days, from the 26th of April to the 26th of May. Successful developers will receive 700XP to exchange for rewards.
