    Pass Book seems to a fail. It is confusing and needs to have a way to manage it from the app.
    i tried a demo in the store and it seems useful. i simply think they launched it when it was not ready. If they'd launched this with 30 to 40 companies onboard with working apps. Like starbucks and many airlines already use scanners and codes for purchases. So for example imagine the same launch but passbook works with say 10 airlines, 10 grocery stores, costco and sames club cards, walmart, target, apple store (how is your own store not working already), starbucks, peets coffee, fandango, moviefone, etc. i don't know fill in the other names. but you get the point. And also it would help to have instructions, like a help link because it's not self explanatory how it works to the average users. But i think if they'd done that instead of this half assed launch it would have presented itself with a better image. Like i said before, i'd be stunned if when Jobs ran Apple they'd have launched so haphazardly. I'm not saying he hasn't had busts, see Ping, but i think he'd had said that's not good enough.

    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.

    I don't think so. I was able to put the Walgreens in Passport the day I upgraded to iOS 6 and I didn't need to provide any credit card information.

    Ah, it must have been the way I did it then. But anyway that's the only app I have so far. I'll hit up Target and CVS soon and I already have a Starbucks account with the app, so by the end of the month that will be in Passbook too.

    Yeah, thus far, Walgreens is the only thing I have. I got it in Passport by installing its app. I don't want to have to install a store's app just to get an item into Passport. That is counterproductive. Anyway, I'm sure Passport will live up to its billing over the next few months with more companies coming onboard and simpler ways of insertion into the app. We will see.

    So clarify one thing. Once an app is in Passbook, you can delete it from the iPhone and it will still be in Passbook?

    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.

    Yes. At least that is how it is with Walgreens. Once I got it into Passbook, I immediately deleted the Walgreen's app. It's place within Passbook was unaffected.

    as a practical matter you a company or store needs to be able to handle the passbook scanning on a phone. Take an airline. if you don't have the proper scanners it does nothing but cause problems and confusion having people load up their milage plus card into the app if it can't be scanned at an airport. Like i have a ralphs card, and i can scan it, photograph the barcode, and at some point possibly add it into passbook, but the problem is my Ralphs only has the old school laser bar readers and they can't read an old style barcode off a phone, largely because the glass screen ruins the reflection. It needs better scanners. Like notice starbucks has those special square readers meant for reading phones. I notice when i use my phone boarding pass on Delta they have special readers with a square pattern not a laser line. I can imagine you don't have the ability to read that in businesses you'd be doing nothing but causing hassle to employees trying to deal with irate customers that expected things to work. I downloaded Keyring too last night. i'll try it but even in keyring it says how certain scanners arent' going to be able to read barcodes off a phone so there's also a clear infastructure component to these things.

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

    ios 6 Passbook is integrated with the security so that users can use rewards card that can be redeemed easily. I would say i really like this App.

    I get that, and agree. But my local Wegmans has new scanners that read the bar code on Keyring. Other older stores I go to have older scanners that don't work. So they manually type the account number in. Just like the might type a phone number in to find you if you don't have a card with you.

    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.

    The only person I know who uses NFC every day is my husband because it's embedded in his employee ID badge. None of my credit cards come with NFC.

    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!
