    Nice suggestion. Has an Apple Watch app too, in addition to simply allowing you to add to PassBook.

    I had been using Key Ring but, after seeing your post, decided to try Stocard.
    I like this better than Key Ring for these reasons:
    Easier to add cards because of their large database (I only had a few I had to manually add; better track record than Key Ring.)
    Free (no pop up ads; offers appear only if you select them)
    Works with Apple Watch! Key Ring does not :mad:

    However, like Key Ring, same limited number of cards entered appear in Passbook. So, I guess Passbook needs to "open the door" and/or update to allow more cards.

    Glad I have Stocard! Overall it beats Key Ring hands down!
    Even though I'm glad that this app is free I would have gladly paid for it (minus the offers).

    Has anyone tried to put a Wawa gift card in passbook via Stocard? I tried to put mine but the bar code looked different than the one in the Wawa app and wouldn't scan at the store.

    I have the same problem with the My Best Buy rewards card. I've tried the original card, and also scanning the QR code version that is in the Best Buy iOS app. Funny thing is, it created a different QR code that it stored. Neither worked. I've also tried the websites that allow you to generate passbook cards without any luck.
