    Default Passbook and Fandango

    I just purchased movie tickets via the fandango app but I can not figure out how to get my tickets into passbook. Anybody know how?

    No you don't that site was set up to test out the functionality while in beta. Click on the email ticket that you were sent and it should allow you to add to passbook.

    No, it didn't. Ended up using a confirmation number at the theater like some hobo.

    The theater you are purchasing tickets has to be able to read the passbook tickets, here is a list

    Probably why you had issues.

    This is very Informative, many thanks for sharing. Now you can save time with passbook ios 6 supported apps like fandango movies. You can send and share your tickets and breeze into the theater.

    You can add them to passbook from the confirmation or purchased tickets section in fandango but I went to the theater that advertised using fandango and all they did was hit the info on the passbook ticket and type the confirmation into the computer ...

    Seems a lot of places are not ready to even scan could you imagine how little use NFC would get

    I guess it cost a bunch of money to update systems to be able to use passbook but still I think eventually it will be at that point

    Same thing happened to me...even though the place was accepting passbook, the guy typed in the code..kind of defeats the whole purpose! The other thing that didn't work for me was the proximity alert where the passbook is supposed to show the event ticket when its time or the location....

    Passbook has been a dismal failure. Just about the least intuitive thing Apple has done. Blegh.

    Does anyone actually use Passbook? I here Stubhub supports it no but most places don't have the correct scanners.

    I can't find a use for it. The movie theatre in my area had no idea what I was talking about and I live in a mid size city. New Orleans.

    Not all theaters are set up for it -- Fandango lists the ones that are.

    I also use it with my American Express card...it shows me my current balance as well as telling me when it has been used.

    In this list of theaters you'll see the barcode...and if you select that theatre it will say "mobile tickets and passbook available"

    I attached screenshots
