on a 4S and i've had the exact same problem twice. it moves fine right after the crash. i may have something to do with moving it from one page to another.

I think you have to have a credit card associated with your account with whatever app you're using. I put Walgreens in Passbook and it showed up after I associated a credit card with my Walgreens account.Gimme a vector, Victor. I'm coming home. Roger, Roger. Huh?

You shouldn't have to wait for some companies to jump on board. The iPhone has a camera. It has bar code scanning ability. You should snap a picture of your loyalty card bar code, and be done. This exists in KeyRing. Most store logos are in KeyRing. If they can get that ability into Passbook (as they should have done), it would be a winner.

Is Passbook going to be able to replace Cardstar or similar apps. The store credit features are cool but not having to carry keytags is what most interests me.
I tried playing with passbook on my wife's phone and it didn't seem like I could do what I wanted it or thought it would do.

How does keyring compare to cardstar. I got all my cards loaded on my 2 iPads in andicipation of getting our iPhones. Haven't went down that road yet though.
I was hoping Passbook was actually used like this.

now all that being said. Apple should have had it's ducks in a row and a bunch of businesses fully ready at launch.

These programs are out there and available (often for free), so there's no reason for Apple to release a similar program that has less features, is harder to set up and use, and requires registration with a third party web site to gain access to a minimal number of card accounts.

well i was just responding to the part about "You shouldn't have to wait for some companies to jump on board" because the phone has a scanner. Scanner or not that doesn't solve the problem on the business end. Sure you can enter numbers manually in plenty of situations but, there are plenty where you can't. I mean i don't know about how it works if you have a card for say, kinkos, or Banana Republic, or Virgin Airlines, or Dodger Stadium ticket, and on and on. That one grocery store can enter numbers doesn't mean A random airline trying to move people through security as fast as possible is ready for to manually enter digital boarding passes that fail to read or even that the airline can read your card at the checkout counter at all. I got several cards that don't even have barcodes. They have just the strip. it has to be swiped. There's no number to enter. I just think for many businesses it's not a simple matter of copying the numbers.

This is actually the reason Apple didn't go with NFC - the business end. There's nowhere to use it. You have to work backwards from whatever standards exist - you can't try to create new standards.

Used passbook for the first time today. Rolled up to target and behold, my Starbucks card showed on my lock screen. Swiped it and there it was ready to be scanned! Scanned twice for to two coffees to increase my stars! Loved it!
