    I want to develop an Android App, which needs to communicate with the PIC microcontroller for data and commands. Since the amount of data is small, I would like to use the NFC method of communication. Can I use the corresponding module for the PIC microcontroller? Or, which one do you recommend, Bluetooth or NFC? The simpler the better, mainly in terms of program development complexity.

    I think Bluetooth is more popular. Microchip has a slew of wireless evaluation kits to choose from. Your best bet is contact their support center and explain what you are trying to do.

    BLE is convenient. You have a choice of using modules that simply look like uarts, or for the more adventurous, other BLE services.
    Is power an issue at the PIC end?
