Works with Canadian Passport Requires providing the following information before the application is able to read the information: Passport Number Date of Birth Date of Expiry This was as per Passport Canada's literature on ePassport However, the passport was closed and yet my Nexus 4 was still able to read it. This is in contradiction to their literature. It is really fascinating and cool but really spooky at the same time!

it works decodes spanish passport image correctly. Remember that you need to have nfc taginfo installed as well, and you need to enter some info in the settings to be able to decode a passport.

British passport?? I could not get it to work with a new British passport. Has anyone else been able to read one?

Works with U.S. passport Have not tried with other passports, friends are reluctant to let me test on their passports after a successful demonstration. 1. Install NFC TagInfo by NFC Research Lab 2. Install PassportImageDecoder 3. Launch NFC TagInfo 4. Enter : Passport Number, Date of Birth, Date of Passport Expiration 5. Scan passport - takes a few seconds. Hold still.

Good app! Also IPS (UK) has an NFC app (UK Passport Reader) to read its NFC chips as of 22/10/2012

Works well Decodes Turkish passport image correctly. It would be awesome if the app supported unicode so that Turkish characters would be displayed correctly. Also, I don't know the other countries' passports but Turkish passports include, fingerprints as well. So maybe the app could display them..

A Google User

Doesn't work Tried it on an Icelandic passport, but nothing happened. Just a beep sound, but no visual cues. It would have been nice to see an error message rather than silent failure.
