Yes, you know what it is … it’s one of the app pre-installed on your iPhone. I event tried to erase it because I didn’t see its use but I couldn’t do it because it’s part of the Apple apps.
Lately, I’ve been traveling with Air France (when they don’t strike …) and I checked in with the Air France app that’s how I discovered accidentally the use of Passbook.
Basically, Passbook gathers all your tickets (not only boarding passes but also you receipts, loyalty cards, coupons, …).
You can add your tickets to Passbook from
. apps (check the list of apps working with Passbook)
. or by scanning the bare code.
Why can this be useful?
First of all,
. all your tickets are gathered at the same place (saving you time when you look for it in your phone and can’t find them and the crowd behind you is growing angry).
. the D-day, your ticket pops on your locked screen for you to show in only one little swipe to the smiling hostess or steward!
With Passbook, you’ll also keep a track of your purchases, tickets, coupons.
Definitively worth a try!
PS: Depending on your country of origin (the nationality of your bankcard recorded in iTunes, you’ll be proposed different list of companies that are collaborating with Apple).
