    Anyone else wondering what Passbook is all about, does it even work in the UK? Seems to be yet another useless app palmed off on my by Apple that I am unable to use/delete!

    Passbook will work fine in the UK if any merchants decide to support it.

    You can't delete the basic apps that are part of the iOS. All you can do is hide them in a folder where they won't be noticed.

    I updated to IOS6 and had a question about passbook, is passbook only provided for Ipads with a cellular network? Because I am unable to locate it on my Ipad. I have an Ipad3 wifi.

    Yes, the iPhones 4s and 5 and the iPod touch 5th generation.

    I guess they felt that the feature would be best utilized on the smaller hand held devices. Imagine going to the movies and showing them your ticket on an iPad.;)

    Lol. That's my thinking, too. But I read about people taking photos and doing barcode scanning with iPad, so apparently there are users who'd like Passbook on iPad, too.

    I have watched several "live" events on the tube recently (not going to name them for various reason) but I was surprised to see some Joe standing there taking either a video or photo on an iPad. If you put a camera on a tablet people are going to use it sooner or later. No matter how silly it looks or doubtful we are that folks will use it. I remember this one time I was doing some repairs at home...needed to place something, but didn't know what it was called...grabbed one of my Android tabs (not going to take my iPad out to the hardware store (lol)), took that photo, end up in HD and showed it to one of those experts. That larger screen made the difference, too, because several people ended up looking at it at the same time.

    I do barcode scanning for my movie collection...easier to do that on a smaller device, IME. But I do find it harder to tell is a subject is in focus on my phone, but much easier on a tablet.

    I look forward to having my "loyalty cards" all in PB. I hate having those in my wallet. This app will be a keeper if folk support it. Seems like some big names are already onboard....Target, Walgreens (these folks have strong app support), and several airlines. Of course, Fandango is there too. Smart.

    I think PB will proved to be useful in the not distant future. Apple can make it happen.

    Yes, I've used iPhone and my Android phone for boarding passes, Starbucks checkouts, membership discount scanning at Barnes & Noble.

    Passbook has potential, but it will take more robust participation to make it really worthwhile. They've got to iron out how it works before turning off too many users. Already online, there are posts about how frustrating it can be to use.

    The problem before was that each program required it's own app. Passbooks purpose is to integrate all that into one app. If they get enough businesses signed on it will do very well.

    Looks like Passbook is another feature that Apple has pushed out half-baked.

    Since I loaded iOS 6 on my touch 4, I loaded various Passbook apps. In two days, I've found that the Fandango app initially failed (went only to a dead black screen); three or four Passbook apps have already had to upgrade; and now I have a hanging duplicate Walgreens Passbook app.

    I updated several Passbook apps last night, as prompted. They took a long time to upgrade, so I went to sleep. Now the night has passed and I've found the old Walgreens Passbook app on my touch, along with a duplicate one that's hanging in update mode at least 12 hours later. I'm now going through restart / reset to see whether I can solve the prob.

    With Siri (half-baked), iOS 6 maps and now Passbook, Apple is showing me that it's lowering standards of what it will ship to customers.

    OK, restart / reset got rid of the hanging duplicate Walgreens Passbook app.

    I've now deleted every Passbook app from my touch, except for the native one, which I've consigned to my "Unused Crap" folder.

    Looks like Apple has skipped properly building and testing Passbook before pushing it out.

    As with its iOS 6 maps, I'm going to take a pass and wait for other users to do beta testing and product development for Apple. If the feature actually improves and people start raving about it, I'll revisit.

    I don't do beta testing and product development, and if I did, I wouldn't do them for free, lol.
