List of Passbook Apps
When you go to passbook you can click a button to go to the app store and see a list of compatible apps. But, once you add a "pass"into passbook you lose the option to click a button and go to the App Store to see a list of compatible apps. When you try to go to the App Store and search for apps that are compatible with passbook you can't find anything. So I think it is necessary to create a thread listing apps that are compatible with passbook so that we can use it as a reference. Please list apps that are compatible with passbook that you are aware of, that have not been listed yet. Thanks and I hope this helps everybody.

Steve Jobs created iCloud so he would have somewhere to go when he died and still be with Apple.

Some stuff like airline tickets may even just be an attachment to an email that you click on to add to Passbook without needing an app.

The current implementation for adding stuff to your passbook seems... lacking. I don't want to have to download a new app for every single item I want to add. That pretty much defeats the entire purpose of having a single repository for all this stuff.
For example, I have loyalty cards with many stores, including Kroger, CVS, Best Buy, Freebirds, Landry's, and a ton of others that I don't always carry around with me because that would make my wallet about 5" thick. I should be able to just open my passbook app and add all of these cards right into it. Why can't I do that?

i agree Big Dookie. I know passbook was a "ticket" feature, but i thought it could do what you pointed out. not really seeing the benefit of passbook. sure its all in 1 spot, but when i fly out or go to the movies, im not shuffling around a bunch of tickets on the same day. i pretty much just need to use the app involved for my task. i think NFC would have been more useful, but I understand that's a hardware improvement.
anyhow, i guess i'll be using cardstar again for my loyalty cards.
so this is awesome, 2 of the top 5 new features turned out to not be so helpful after all (maps & passbook). maps might be an improvement for some. for me not so much cause i need transit directions and better local business search.

As soon as apps update to include themselves in Passbook, you won't need the apps anymore. You'll be able to log onto your account online and click a button to add your loyalty card or ticket/coupon to Passbook. That's actually how the Sephora one works now.

Re: List of Passbook Apps
I installed both AA and United apps through the Passbook app, but neither one has a button in the app to "Add to Passbook"... Do you have to have a boarding pass to get that function? Not working as advertised... Very disappointed. Others, SPG and Starbucks do work. Trying others but doesn't look like all apps advertised are consistent.

List of Passbook Apps
Passbook has been more of a flop than a must have feature. There aren't many partners signed on yet. Hopefully that'll change, but if they haven't come on yet, it's probably gonna take a while.
