    So I have seen other posts about this but just wanted something simpler to reference to. How many of you guys use the Passbook app? More specifically, who keeps the location services on with passbook to get the full use out of it?
    For me, I use it for my Frys food V.I.P. Card and it's nice that it automatically pops up on my lock screen when I arrive at the local Frys by my house. Only concern I have...does it use up too much battery? not sure but it's nice to use.

    Use it for Walgreens, and AAA, it's handy. Beats digging for cards.

    I've never used it. I honestly think things like this are a bit of a fad at the moment. Until the world settles on one type of standard, there will be far too many different apps, ways and methods to actually be useful.

    If the Tim Horton's app had passbook integration I would be using the passbook app a lot more but right now I don't even use it.

    I started to use it and then I realized about the only common use for it I would have is for my Starbucks card. Since it's just that, I would rather just open the app.

    This is kinda what I think I'm going to do with my Frys card. I figure to have passbook locate all day so it knows when I'm near my local frys grocery store would is probably eating up battery life.

    Used it twice for movies. Bought the ticket in fandango then opens up in passbook. At the movies they scan the on screen barcode and I'm in.

    I use it regularly for Starbucks, Walgreens, and AAA and have also used it for boarding passes/tickets for Amtrak.

    The Location feature makes it really convenient for Starbucks and Walgreens. They automatically show up on the Lock Screen if you have that enabled.

    Same here. In the past I also used it for Harbor Freight.
    Good Luck

    I currently use it for starbucks, target, and walgreens around once a month. I used it on my flight back from vacation as well and each time; its worked smoothly. For someone who mishandles their keys enough to lose every loyalty card and uses the 12South bookbook case which barely holds cards; this app is awesome. Just wish more companies used it

    I use it a fair amount and definitely see the usefulness in it. Specifically, I use it for Delta Airlines boarding passes and mediallion member status card, my AAA card, my Starwoods member card, my Dillons grocery start card.

    Granted, all of this info is available in their various apps, but passbook gives me a one stop access point for all of them vs. having to hunt for them in each individual apps. Also 4 less physical cards having to take up physical space in my wallet.

    For those who don't use its features, I'd agree it's useless. However some of us have gotten good use out of it (this is to head off "I don't use it, therefore Apple should get rid of it" nonsense).
