    I just saw this too, but can't figure out what it does that the app doesn't already do.

    Very cool but could get me depressed about my spending. :)

    This is just the initial rollout. The following is a roadmap of features that American Express is looking to implement in the future (but, as always, is not guaranteed):

    I'm not entirely sure how AmEx plans to take on Yelp, but the other bullet points sound doable.

    did it just work for you all immediately after filling out the form on your phone? Or was there a delay?

    It worked immediately for me. The pass popped up and I just tapped "Add."

    Thanks for the heads.
    Going to give this a try.

    Wonder why they are doing this through the web and not their iPhone app.

    ----------

    Working well but how are you guys now checking for passbook apps in the App Store since that option is no longer available within the passbook app?

    Bet American Express saw all the complaints about people not wanting to download apps to add passes to Passbook. :p

    No, they probably used a web page because they've lumped it under their American Express Sync program, which syncs deals to your card from foursquare, Twitter, and Facebook; you can only sync your card through the American Express Sync page.

    As for the list of Passbook apps, I briefly saw a banner in the App Store that led to a list of Passbook apps (much like there's a banner for Newsstand apps) but it doesn't seem to be up anymore. Perhaps it'll show up again in the future.

    Didn't work for me with my credit card.

    But my credit card is issued by my bank but it is still an American Express. So its not a card issued direct from American Express if you see what I mean.

    Arn's Appshopper site has an easy way to search:

    http://appshopper.com/search/?cat=&...l&sort=rel&dir=asc&search=Passbook&whatsnew=1


    You use "Passbook" as the keyword, and check the "what's new" field, and it'll give you a list of all the app updates that reference Passbook.

    Probably. It's not really an AX card.

    My corporate card issued directly by American Express doesn't work either, despite it being listed as an eligible card in the FAQ. Oh well

    It worked for me. It's nice, but has a long way to go. Right now it just shows the outstanding balance and the last few transactions. Cool as a quick way to check these things, but pretty limited.

    Worked fine got me. I think it will be useful for a quick check.

    Nice, but it only works in cards issued in the U. S., so I can't use it.

    Now i wonder if we'll have an option to put a passcode on passbook in the near future.
