    So people in the US are starting to see the benefits of passbook, has anyone found a use for it in the UK, or any apps that UK businesses (or even UK variants of US businesses eg. Starbucks) allow use of? Clicking "Find Apps" in the passbook app simply lists about 4 useless apps...

    To be fair, web and email based use actually seems much more useful than integrated apps in the first place.

    You are lucky you are not in Middle East….

    We will perhaps get something useful by year 2020, if we are lucky…

    Annoy your local companies and developers until they use Passbook then. :)

    There seems to be quite a few in the Far East, more specifically China.

    ----------

    I've been checking this list daily, it's up to 49 apps in total now.

    Have used the Lufthansa one a lot in the last few weeks, obviously only if you travel a fair bit.

    I asked The AA if they planned to do membership cards, they said it is something they will be looking into.

    At least they didn't say 'what is it?' :)

    No usefulness whatsoever, thus far!

    To be honest, I can't see that changing for a while.

    Bought a Clickteez t-shirt. Only cost 4 quid.

    Once ordered you get another Passbook card showing your order status.

    Starbucks is going to bring Passbook support to us in the UK soon.
    Also Tesco is going to be revamping their apps and also adding passbook support soon.
