Apple wants to destroy your wallet and kill your credit cards with Apple Pay, its new mobile payment system.
Samsung has just announced its new Wallet mobile payment app at the Mobile World Congress and... and it looks a hell of a lot like Apple's Passbook.
Apple has announced that Passbook ticketing will be available in 13 Major League Baseball stadiums this coming season.
Who needs a piece of plastic to give a gift card anymore? Not you if you go through Square. A new update to the Square Wallet app adds digital giftcards you can give right from your phone right to someone else's. And if your gift-target is running iOS 6, it'll show up in their Passbook.
As one of the billboard features of Apple iOS 6, Passbook has proven way more useful than we initially anticipated. Amtrak, Fandango, and sports ticketing integration have already made it a welcome addition. But what's really going to make this a killer feature in the future is having all of the world's airlines on…
Though iOS 6's Passbook burst onto the scene with a bit of a whimper, it's been getting more useful as time goes on. This weekend, Apple started rolling out Passbook-enabled Apple Store gift cards so you can buy a gift that's not only last-minute, but not even a physical object.
If you've got an iPhone, and your Passbook app has been sitting lonely and unused, there's a short-term solution to the problem; fill it out with some gag tickets.
You give a friend a thoughtful gift certificate for their birthday, but how do you know it's not going to sit in a drawer forever and just end up expiring? It's not for lack of gratitude, but because those plastic cards are easy to forget about. Gyft is an app that gifting a whole lot simpler.
Now that iOS 6 is out in the wild, Apple has announced its line up of newly Passbook-supported apps. Sadly the list is much shorter than expected—and doesn't even include many of the applications highlighted by Apple in its public demonstrations.
We've seen and heard about many of the new features coming to iOS 6 already, but with the announcement of the iPhone 5, we now know exactly when it's coming: September 19.
Apple has landed some more intellectual property for Passbook, its mobile wallet solution for iOS 6. This time it's a patent directly related to shopping.
The next great iPhone software is still in beta mode right now, but we're already excited about digitizing some of the crap in our wallets via Passbook—and for frequent travelers, it'll be a godsend. Check out the future:
While Apple announced the launch of Passbook for iOS 6 a couple of weeks ago, even those using the developer release of the operating system can't really try it out properly—as information to use with the app just isn't out there yet. Now, however, Redmond Pie has shown us how to start trying it out.
Passbook is a new mobile wallet from Apple that will debut in iOS. Right now it's not about payments, it's about ticket aggregation, but it's a sign of things to come. Currently, it allows you to combine your tickets and loyalty cards into one convenient place. It's intuitive, and pretty spectacular.
