    Turns out you can use Passbook as a flashlight app on the Watch. Who knew? *

    It temporarily turns the brightness up to max, and keeps the screen on for a decent time (60 seconds) no matter how you move your wrist - perfect for a little bit of light when you really need it.

    I only had a old ticket for the Australian Open, and even with a thin barcode it works surprisingly well. And being on the Watch, you can use both hands.

    It is a 3 tap and scroll the wheel solution, but still. Any port in a storm.

    * Oh YOU knew this launch day? Well done tiger! I'm a slow learner.

    Almost as good, you can all go to the Australian Open Kids day 2014, on me!

    But an accidental free coffee for a few hundred forum members would have been a lot funnier.
