That's scary. That means it could be even easier for people to hack.
I know you were hoping for positive responses but the dangers I've heard seem more feasible if you can read nfc with screen off. Sure it can have its ups.
I'm not trying to be a negative poster. I hope you don't take this the wrong way.
Fortunately, you can set it to what you'd like. By default, it is set to only scan when screen is on and unlocked
. You can have it scan when screen is on and locked (what I like to do with NFC Task Launcher to quickly silence my phone when I get in to work in the morning) or have it scan every few seconds while the screen's off.
Again, by default it only works while the screen's on and unlocked.
Now, with that out of the way, I happened to compile AOKP with this mod built-in yesterday. Note that Foursquare is also fixed in these:
