    Just exactly does Passbook work? Keep saying it cannot connect to iTunes.

    Yeah I get the same error. Won't be much use in my country anyway, filed in my CrApple folder with the other stock apps.

    From the looks of it, the App Store has apps that may go into the Passbook and then you can scan gift cards into it, and or flight tickets.

    You need an app that is compatible with passbook. In that app there will be an option to add your info into passbook. There are only a few so far from what I understand. The only one I have is the Walgreens app.

    Ok, the key to this app is to not open the app directly. You must open an app that is compatible with passbook. For example, Starbucks.

    When you open the Starbucks app, you can then update your information on your Starbucks account, so that gift cards, coupons, and preloaded $ are updated. Your credit card info is also an option, so that you can reload your loyalty card; you can also select specific locations.

    For more info, go to www.passsource.com. You'll also get a list of current passbook friendly apps. Good luck!

    Ok so I tried this. Thanks. It does ask for bar code ## which I get. But it also ask for card ## too?

    I tried this and it let me create a dummy Airline boarding pass. When I was done it took me to Passbook. Then I deleted it and it shredded it just like in the Keynote.

    See the other Passbook thread. One post has a link with explanation and a list of Apps that work with Passbook...Starbucks, Walgreens, etc. I got to create a fake airline boarding pass there which I could see in Passbook and eventually delete.

    Looks like this site is for creating Passbook cards.
    To use the Passbook App you must have to have the app and a card loaded for the vendor... Starbucks, Delta Airlines, etc. I don't have any cards so wasn't able to test for real.

    So on the site do you sign up for it, or just create? A little step by step would be nice!
