    I've read conflicting information. Is it safe to use passsource.com to make a blockbuster card and a best buy rewards zone card?

    I myself have not used PassBook yet fully. I am excited to see what it brings down the table with other stores, etc coming on board to use it. But I can't answer what you stated as I have not read anything like that.

    Just wait. I'm sure a lot of companies will provide an official app or passbook solution. Just my 2 cents

    I truly hope so. I love the idea on not carrying paper and having it all in one source....

    Yeah. I used the app KeyRing before passbook. You had to manually input your cards, but once you did they worked fine. Passource I imagine is the same way. I've added my Kroger card and Starbucks card. The Starbucks card worked fine, can't wait for the app to add pass support this weekend so it will pop up automatically.

    I have to say so far passbook is a big disappointment. It's one thing if apps like Starbucks aren't updated yet but how are you not able to scan your store cards like you can do in key ring. I don't want to go through a back door site to do this. I want it to work the way they advertised it would.

    I use the Keyring app, too and placing card information is almost effortless. I was hoping the Passbook app would be somewhat similar in regard to inputting data.

    I completely agree, that's what I was expecting. I didn't think that I would have to go to a website to create them.

    I'm not sure how the store loyalty cards would even work. If the app is not set up to manually add or scan how would you get the info in there.

    I'm not quite sure, but thus far, at least in my opinion, it appears harder than it needs to be.

    On this note I would add that card munch app is worth a try. I have been using it and do not need to carry all those membership cards which is awesome.

    No, I'm not affiliated with "Card Munch"

    Card Munch is for business cards, not loyalty cards. Apples and oranges.

    For those of you still stressing over this....you should not go to a 3rd party website to enter information. This won't give you properly working passes anyway. Just wait until the store of your choice offers Passbook integration. Starbucks is supposed to be available tomorrow.

    As stores are ready for Passbook integration, they will offer either a link from their current app, or from their website (like Sephora) so that all you have to do is click to tie into Passbook. You can then get rid of the separate app if you so desire.

    I agree about the third party websites- what I am curious about is how they will handle loyalty cards from supermarkets etc that may not have an iPhone app. Not sure why they couldn't set up a scan system for those.

    Exactly! Having a scan system of some sort seems to be a no-brainer, in my opinion, and unless they incorporate one or the stores that already accept the scanned images that I have in my Keyring app, Passbook will remain my second choice behind Keyring.

    Passbook is a little beyond the loyalty cards you use at the supermarket. But if the supermarkets want, they can certainly offer Passbook support. If every local news station in the country has their own app, certainly chain stores can offer Passbook integration.

    Sadly it's not beyond anything right now. It's not functional for the majority. Believe it or not maps works better.

    Loaded a few apps to integrate with it last night. Seems to work flawlessly. now here is hope that more jump in on it.

    Well the plus side of Passbook is that unlike KeyRing and the individual apps, it is supposed to automatically pop up your loyalty card when you arrive to that location.

    Until it's more widely used, I've turned off Location Services for Passbook to save a little bit of battery life.

    Just my 2 cents what I understand is that a store has to have the equipment to scan the qr codes. It would be silly for a company to offer passbook integration if the technology in the store was unable to read it. Maybe in the future they will use 2d barcodes but right now it seems QR code exclusive.

    I'm not a fan of all of my apps having access to my location. I'm also one of those people who go through the settings of both devices and apps and limit what they can do in regard to my information & location. Still, the feature in and of itself is very nice.

    A QR Code is a 2D barcode...
