We have no complaints with our iPhone 5, but if you were among those disappointed that the handset didn't introduce near-field communication (NFC) to iOS, a new Kickstarter campaign might be just what you're looking for.
Sharing data between iOS devices used to be a daunting task, but the App Store now offers plenty of third-party solutions to this problem. Chirp is the latest, and easily the most novel solution since Bump. Chirp uses the power of sound to initiate a transfer between compatible devices. With the free app installed and open on both devices, simply take/choose a photo or type in a link or note, tap the yellow button, and enjoy short, bird-like chirps as your transfer is made.
