Do you really use Passbook on iOS 6?

The title says it all. Just curios to know. I've not used it in real-life even once. Do you use it?

Nobody I know uses it, it's pretty much supposed to store your gift cards and stuff but it's more trouble than it's worth .

I used it for the first time @ starbucks yesterday, but I dunno, they need to implement more shops, or it's just a gimmick..

Yes

Yes, I use it regularly. There are a few programs that will allow you to create your own passbook passes so this has helped. I do wish for more support at the moment but I think it will come. Everything is going mobile and the more businesses see this as a ad and sales opportunity the more we'll see.

There are also a few coupon apps out there now that support it. When grocery stores and food manufacturers recognize this potential I think you'll really start to see it take off.

i use it, and i love it. i go to starbucks, bust out my phone, and the passbook notification is right there on the lock screen. one swipe, and i'm ready to pay. i don't have to worry about unlocking my phone, entering my pass code, or fumbling around trying to find and open the starbucks app. it's a win in my book any time you streamline the payment process.

Needs to be adopted by more stores and companies to have a larger foot print.

I use the Starbucks pass quite often and I've used my Best Buy Rewards card and Ralph's Market/Kroger card a few times. Waiting on Target and CVS to get their bar codes working.

It's hard to define regularly. I've used mine a couple times for boarding Air Canada flights, a few Starbucks trips and a couple Cineplex movies.

I voted yes, but I don't use the app every day. More along the lines of once a week.

I bought a $25 starbucks giftcard just to test it out when I got the phone on launch day. As of right now I still have $11 left on it if that tells you how much I use it.

The only other thing I have in there right now is a custom GameStop rewards card so I don't have to carry the physical one in my wallet. It needs more work and expanded uses for it to be useful to me.

How did you get Best Buy and Kroger to work on Passbook?

I used it Starbucks to look cool but really I save what 10 seconds to bust out my Starbucks card?

But does Lufthansa even have flights all over the planet, I mean they are famous for speak german on all of their flights lol...but unlikely that's not a booking point to me, since I don't speak german haha.
Is American Airlines Passbook ready? anybody has a clue?
