    Hey all, not seen a recent thread that covers this but thought it would be worth trying to get a list together of passbook apps that work in the UK now that the Apple watch is here. so far I've got the following:

    Subway Subcard (Rewards Card)
    Costa (Rewards Card)
    Greggs (Prepay Card)
    Starbucks (Prepay Card)

    I've used the Starbucks pass and the Costa pass on my watch in store which was very handy. Anyone else seen any of interest?

    I've downloaded the Subway app in anticipation of the perfect opportunity to test it out. This will probably become very useful actually as I eat there a lot but can never be bothered to get my card out.

    I wish Tesco would do something similar with their Clubcard as I use that at least 3 times a week.

    Slightly off topic, but how does passbook work on the watch? What is the procedure for getting from a blank screen to the thing you need?

    In the UK, this process does not exist since we do not have Apple Pay. Instead we have to open home screen then tap on passbook.

    Get the stocard app for generic barcodes. It has watch support. The barcodes look quite small but the self service counter scanners do read them. I use it at Tesco regularly.

    Passbook only supports less than a handful of the barcode standards out there.

    As mentioned in another thread, there is a rumour Apple Pay will finally be coming to the UK officially with the Banks

    Nice app I've added a couple of cards to it just disappointed it won't work with my club card as it's on my credit card. wish Tesco would update the app with passbook support

    Good find. I've loaded up Stocard with Nectar, Tesco and Costa barcodes. Thanks for tip.

    Pleased to hear the self service scanners can read the barcode, life is so much better with a self scanner. :D

    Can't wait. Happy to see my bank and most of my fast food places and quick stop shops on there too.

    It's a little shocking that Barclays isn't on the list.

    How will this work? If I have a credit card linked on Apple Pay for example my Amex, as well as a store loyalty card such as a Tesco Clubcard, Will I need to scan each one separately ?

    Does anyone know if your spend is limited to £20 the way it is now if you use a contactless card?
