Passbook can be an incredibly useful tool for storing all kinds of things from boarding passes to loyalty cards to gift cards and more. Unfortunately, the App Store doesn't make it so easy to find apps that are Passbook compatible.

The case for Apple slowing down, rather than speeding up

Instead of media and markets continuously hounding Apple about "what's next?!", there's a case to be made that Apple has already announced several services that could do with a little -- or a lot -- of their attention. It might not be as magical or revolutionary as a fresh name on a big slide, but making what's already here work better could also increase the value of Apple's platform as a whole. At least that's what Joe Cieplinski thinks:

How to disable lock screen notifications for specific Passbook cards

If you use Passbook frequently on your iPhone, you may have noticed that certain passes use your location in order to give you easy access on your lock screen to a specific pass when you're within the vicinity.

How to disable location services for Passbook on your iPhone

Passbook for iPhone may be a great tool for managing boarding passes, reward cards, and more, but it can also be a drain on battery. Since Passbook continuously checks your location to see if you're in range of somewhere you may want to use one of your passes, it can significantly decrease your battery life.

While it's a convenient feature, if you're finding your battery life is suffering, you can disable location services to lessen the strain on your battery.

How to disable access to Siri and Passbook from your iPhone or iPad lock screen

If you've got a passcode set on your iPhone, Siri and Passbook will still work by default on your Lock screen. This means that anyone who wants to talk to Siri or use one of your passes will still be able to. While it's convenient, it can be a bit unsafe.

Samsung re-starts copier, announces Passbook for Galaxy devices

Samsung announced their new Samsung Wallet today. Here's Simon Sage's take from Android Central:

Samsung has announced a new API for developers to help manage event tickets, boarding passes, memberships, and coupons. Samsung Wallet will be a new application which brings all of these types of content into one place. Time and location-based push notifications will help users get a hold of the ticketing information.

If that sounds -- and looks -- familiar, it's because Apple already announced it back in June of 2012 as Passbook.
