    How would I go about creating my own store/reward cards for use with PassBook? If anyone has any info it would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    The Passbook app is a bit more than a rewards card/store card app and therefore if you simply create a custom one for a specific store, it does not guarantee that the store will accept it or if their scanners can scan it. For stuff like that you may want to download the Keyring app from the App Store. Still, to answer your question, go HERE.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I already have KeyRing and its a pretty cool app but it lacks the GPS features that PassBook has. PassBook also seems to have a friendlier user interface as well.
    That Pass Source website seems confusing by the way :-)
    Thank you for your response.

    I did a totally paperless checkin on an airline flight, and figured I had to reopen the email with the boarding pass linked to it , but it was there, in passbook, ready for security and the gate to scan . I have the airlines app installed and they seemed to seamlessly connect. Way to go !!

    I've used it in Starbucks. That's the only one that's useful to me.

    Tried it for the first time today, with the Walgreen app, seems pretty cool, but will have to get back to you on it.

    I use it all the time, Starbucks, United and the movie theater. It's easy to have it on the lock screen so you don't have to unlock, go to the app, open it then use it.

    I was extremely excited about this feature but it's been nothing but a huge disappointment. I don't know whose fault that is - Apple for making the technology too hard for retailers to adopt or retailers just not caring. IMO Apple needs to reach out (assuming they haven't done so already) to some large companies in an attempt to kickstart this thing. Places where people actually use rewards cards, membership cards, and gift cards, in my area I can think of a few - Kroger, Gold's Gym, Panera, Qdoba, Subway, etc. The only place I would possibly use Passbook is Best Buy and I don't really shop there anymore.

    I load coupons to passbook from coupons.com/passbook. (Tks to JustMe'D)

    Good Luck
    Please share how this is done. Every time I try to get the coupons on iPad it says I have to install coupon printer.
    Thanks

    On your iPad? I thought the Passbook App only worked on iPhone and iPod Touch Devices using iOS 6 or later. Anyway, when you access the www.coupons.com/passbook page via the Safari browser on an iPhone or iPod Touch, you will see a listing of available coupons with the "add to passbook" option next to it. See the attached screenshot. Simply tap on "Add to Passbook" in regard to any coupons you're interested in and it will automatically transfer into your device's Passbook App. It is that simple...

    Thanks! I was hoping there was a way to get the actual qpons on coupons.com like $1. off certain items. Guess this is not for that.

    I'm sure it can be implemented but whether or not the people at coupon.com actually initiate that implementation is anyone's guess.

    Useless, to think this was a big "feature" of iOS6

    I think the fact that so few apps are passbook capable, and that there's been any adoption lately shows what a failure it's been.
    Just laying the groundwork for bigger and better things. Once i showed the girlfriend how to use it at Starbucks, she was excited about the possibilities. I don't use it at all yet, but it's a step closer to easy, secure mobile payments and with those kinds of public information and financial exchanges going on I'd prefer a slow approach. Today it's a few vendors with limited functionality. But tomorrow I'll be in and out through designated registers swiped over my iBand, iWatch, or whatever as I walk right out the door.

    I use it regularly at Starbucks. Saves so much time at the drive through! I don't even have to worry about unlocking the phone.
    I have the regular old Starbucks App on my phone.. seems pointless to have a secondary app (Passbook) that does what the primary app (Starbucks) does as well. I can upload more funds, pay for drinks, get free songs, etc all through my Starbucks app.. I dont see a need for another app to do the same thing.

    Your observation is very valid. Furthermore, Passbook still need the Starbucks app installed in order to update its balance.

    Yes agreed. I use the Starbucks app over the passbook every time. If I could I would delete it.

    This is the same for Fandango (for those that use it).

    The only way to "delete" it, per se, is to hide it using SB Settings (must be jailbroke).

    I use Passbook when I know I'm going to be using a provides service. If I'm flying, ill turn it on so I have the real time flight and boarding info. Going to a movie, ill cut it on so Fandango will show my tickets when I walk up. There are some great uses for it, Apple just needs to get more partners on board.

    Nice! Personally though, I opted to disable location services for Passbook. I prefer to unlock my iPhone and initiate the app manually.

    The advantage of Passbook over the app is that you don't have to unlock the phone or go find the app. It's just there.
