What is it?

This app is a viewer for passes - a cross could be a e.g. boarding-pass in your subsequent flight, a coupon for a pleasant sizzling beverage on the vacation spot, a film ticket, a membership card - there are a lot of prospects.

Basically it is a replacement for a piece of paper or plastic you'd usually have to carry with you - so lets save some bushes and cut back waste!

Also this app is Free-Software - Free not solely as in Free Beer - but more as in Richard Stallmans Concept of Free and Open Software for a better World.

How does it work?

There are so called espass or pkpass information - you possibly can open them with this app - e.g. whenever you receive them through e-mail or get an Download-option. The most necessary content is the BarCode ( QR , AZTEC PDF417which authorizes you most of the time - however it also has other attention-grabbing content like a description - usually a time ( that you now can add to your calendar ) - typically additionally places ( to offer you instructions ) - simply strive It out!

The app is offline usable once you downloaded the pass!


I stumbled upon Passbook recordsdata when i received my ticket for the 29c3 - I appreciated the Idea - but there was no Android App which was working for me. I noticed that the implementation is quite straightforward ( only a zip container with json and pictures ) - The first model was construct very fast was working for me ( received entry to 29C3 ) - In the following year I truly have not worked on this app a lot as I had no actual use-cases however there the place lots of users downloading the app and I fastened processing of some passes that the place ship to me ( some passes include really damaged json .. )

One yr later - simply earlier than the 30C3 - I got here to work a bit on this app once more - for 2 reasons:

- a good friend of mine is very into this complete BTLE thing and location beacon / context conscious thing could probably be interesting for Passbook - but nothing prepared yet

- I got a mail from a Luis Torrecilla - a very good designer who did an excellent redesign

This all was leading to PassAndroid - a totally new version - with a model new look and new functions ( sorting and adding to calendar alongside pull to refresh a navigation drawer and contextual ActionBar menu )
