What’s the Deal With Passbook?

Erica Ogg:

Burning question I have to ask: what is up with Apple’s Passbook app? Since its unveiling at WWDC, it was one of the things I looked forward to most in iOS 6. As a frequent traveler and someone who detests printing things out, I love the idea of storing digital tickets, boarding passes and rewards cards in one place on my phone. But after using it for the first time Sunday, I’m left feeling mostly perplexed and a little let down.

“What am I supposed to do with this?” is not something you usually ask about an Apple product. Its potential is great and I do think Passbook will get better, but right now it’s mostly waiting for support from third-parties.
