    So do devs have to make a separate "pass" for passbook or do you get it automatically when you download the app.

    For example will the Fandango or Target app be required in order to use Passbook or does passbook have its own set like Newsstand?

    Mostly, you will see apps integrate passbook functionality into them. However I believe that any website (registered with Apple to send push notifications) can make passes for your device.

    Guessing, based on the existence of passsource.com :). It's a site that generates pass files, and they're offering an API for people to make passes for sites ( presumably those that don't have iOS apps)

    It would be really nice if they included many different sources that you could use the passes and giftcards from.:apple::apple:

    There's an API for apps to create passes. Websites can create/add passes as well.

    Would be nice if it could store credit cards/debit cards.

    (With a pin code to unlock, obviously).

    Very cool. Can't really test it though cause I don't have iOS 6. Interesting, none the less. So Passbook will be more of a standard than an app?
