the kiosks are most common now.

I am totally excited about Fandango - I use it all the time.

That sucks. Try restarting your phone? Either way, it'll work in time.

Same here. I would have thought that it was a issue with the app or a hard coded link somewhere, but if some people have it working while others do not, it must be a server issue.

I found a fix, and it connects and updates.

Try this.

Go to Settings>General>Date and Time>Set Automatically>Off. Set the date one year ahead. Try to update the apps again. If you get an error message, go back to the settings. Correct the date and time (set automatically) then go back and try to update the apps again.

For those getting the connection error, this fix worked for me:

https://discussions.apple.com/messag...17541?tstart=0

I have another problem now, though. I just bought some movie tickets with the Fandango app, and sure enough, there is an "Add To Passbook" option. But every time I click on it I get the following error.....

First app for Australia is up.

"Shoppernova" - Run by a radio station here in Australia , The app allows discount vouchers.

If you book via the "Virgin Australia" website now on your iPhone the confirmation is now sent to passbook.

I also work for a Hotel in Australia and we are currently developing a confirmation for express check in's via passbook and even an app to contact concierge and reception.

Hope To see more apps today!

Deleting and reinstalling the Fandango app solved the problem.

Also curious about this. How will cards get added to Passbook without the need for an app?

So, how does this work if you're buying multiple tickets? If I'm going to a show with a friend, do we have to go through the ticket gate together? What about places like movie theaters where you have to show your stub to exit and reenter?

Is there a way to distribute tickets to other members of the group, and if so how do they stop you from distributing to the world?

This actually worked for me! Crappy bug if that's the case that a lot of people have to do this.

Has anyone gotten the Starbucks app to work with passbook yet? Or do we have to wait for an app update?

I have a couple of tickets I bought from Ticketmaster a couple of weeks ago that unfortunately I can't get into Passbook. I was hoping Ticketmaster's app would allow you to throw your previously ordered tickets into passbook but apparently no.

Another way to get passes without an app

You can create passes for your credit / debit cards by using BillGuard for Passbook http://passbook.billguard.com.
It'll show you your balance and you'll get alerts for suspicious charges on your card. You don't need to install another iPhone app for this.
