Samsung’s Wallet app for Android
Samsung has introduced the Apple’s Passbook-style ticket and coupon management app called as Samsung Wallet, during the Developer Day at the Mobile World Congress.
Apple’s Passbook app gives the ability to the users to store things like event tickets, boarding passes, store cards, and coupons at one place. Moreover, it also gives push notifications to inform the users about the offers and updates and the users can show barcodes to scan at payment desks.
Samsun has introduced the app with the affiliation with partners, such as Walgreens, Belly, Major League Baseball Advanced Media, Expedia, Booking.com, Hotels.com, and Lufthansa, that would probably be increased by the launch time of Galaxy S IV. Partners will also be able to use the Samsung Wallet API to give time and location based push notifications.
At this time, the app is available only as a developers’ preview. According to the company, the API will be open to the public in May, 2013.
