  1. Getting the banks on board first was essential. I would say that is job done.
    Next is building out the retailers which is more of a challenge. 68 is good but there is still a long way to go.
    I won’t be getting an iPay capable phone for at least a year but hopefully the Apple Watch will make up for that. It will be interesting how well Apple Pay works.
    I finally got to use Passbook for the first time on a trip last week. It worked well except for the lack of notification of a gate change. I was wondering why we weren’t boarding and luckily refreshed the airline app and found that they have switched gates. I will definitely check more frequently in future but I consider that a fail for Passbook.

    1. Didn’t the big screen behind the counter inform you that you were at the wrong gate? You don’t need your phone to know if you’re sitting in front of the correct gate.
