It’s been a while since we started working on WalletKit. At the World Wide Developer Conference on June 11, Apple announced its mobile wallet Passbook – “the simplest way to get all your boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons, loyalty cards, and more all in one place”.
All your digital passes from airlines, theatres, retailers and other businesses can be added to Passbook through apps, emails, and websites .You can also see when your coupons expire, where your concert seats are, location of the event and the balance left on your gift cards.
Passes appear on your Lock screen at the appropriate time and place — like when you reach the airport or walk into the store to redeem your gift card or coupon. This very powerful feature will reminds users to redeem passes at the business nearby. Each pass is location and time relevant. You can then scan your pass to check in for a flight, get into a movie, and redeem a coupon.
If your gate changes after you’ve checked in for your flight, Passbook can alert you to make sure you’re not relaxing in the wrong terminal. Every single field in a pass can be updated and pushed to Passbook through the standard iOS notification feature.
Apple is entering into the mobile wallet marketplace by wisely choosing a path to work with rather than against existing infrastructure. In the process Apple will change just about all aspects of physical ticketing and payments.
Passbook will have a direct impact on all existing companies that are in Payments, gift cards, loyalty cards, reward cards, incentive cards and ticketing space. Over time the impact of Apple Passbook on other mobile wallets like Google Wallet, MCX,Mastercard PayPass Wallet, Isis, PayPal Here,Sprint Touch,Square,Lemon,Visa V.me and Windows WalletHub will be significant.
