Can anybody explain Passbook feature in iPhone5?
And How to use this feature in real life?
Passbook is essentially a virtual wallet, used for gift cards, reward cards, etc. for specific businesses/locations..
One example would be the Walgreens Rewards card. I signed up, and it has my card & bardcode on my iPhone. Every time I purchase something at Walgreens, I show the clerk my iPhone and it adds points to my Rewards Balance. I also received a Starbucks gift card, and activated it in Passbook. Upon purchase of a Venti Cappucino, I whipped out my 4S and the clerk used that for my payment.
Very handy/neat concept.
There are also apps where you can find and download coupons and such from to your Passbook.
For example, the iSlick app has a Passbook section. When you find a coupon you want, you tap the little Passbook icon and follow the steps to add it to Passbook.
I just added one, see:
How the sales clerck the use the passbook? Wil they scan the device which showing the passes/coupans?
With the Starbucks card in Passbook, there's a barcode that they scan. I would imagine that's how it works for other ones as well.
You can add your Starbucks and all sorts of things in there.
It is a lot more easier to use Passbook.
That's new information!
Passbook is limited. However I'm sure in a month from now we'll see many companies getting on board with these Passbook Apps
Time to reload your Starbucks card.
