I just purchased a ticket for a movie tonight using the Fandango app on my iPhone 4S running iOS 6. I know that Fandango is one of the current few Passbook supported apps. What I don't know is how to ensure that my tickets will show up in Passbook. Is there anything special I have to do? The Walgreens app prompted me to put my card in Passbook so I was expecting similar behavior from Fandango. Will the tickets just show up in Passbook closer to showtime?

Only certain theaters are capable of mobile ticketing. In the Fandango app when viewing theaters which can accept mobile tickets you will see a notification which says "Mobile ticket available." If you do not see this indicator a mobile device cannot be used as a ticket at this theater and therefore tickets will not show up in Passbook. That said, you can still purchase tickets for the theater and use a confirmation code at the box office.

  • This is a nice example of how apps can initially "support" passbook but it takes time (weeks to months) and updates to the app on the store to really integrate at a deeper level with passbook. – bmike Sep 30 '12 at 18:15
