    Given that NFC wouldn’t be a good choice now because the majority of users don’t have it (also, we don’t think that the HID readers on campus can read the NFC of a smartphone, but we’ll try anyway) and that the only other comment was a reasonable work-around, we’re going to decline this idea to focus efforts elsewhere. Thanks.

        Are the readers on campus HID iClass compatible? From what I've researched those are the NFC (13.56MHz) compatible readers.

        The HID reader to lower level Creese (to Commuter Lounge) seems to be a different model than the rest on campus. I think this one supports iClass.

        Unfortunately, we aren't going to do any more BlackBerry development unless the platform makes a come-back. The old platform lost traction even before BB 10 came out. (Windows Phone, by contrast, has been growing steadily, even though it still is really tiny compared to iOS, which seems to rule the Drexel campus.)

        Make a BlackBerry 10 app and allow the NFC feature to emulate the ID for HID access.
