The Barclaycard app now will allow Near Field Communication-enabled contactless payments on supported Android devices.

With the new feature, consumers can make contactless payments of up to £30 pounds ($43) without a PIN, or payments of up to £100 with PIN authentication, according to a report on Engadget
