With this app, users can also see when their coupons expire, where their concert seats are, and the balance left on that all important coffee bar card. “Wake your iPhone or iPod touch, and passes appear on your Lock screen at the appropriate time and place - like when you reach the airport or walk into the store to redeem your gift card or coupon. And, if your gate changes after you've checked in for your flight, Passbook will even alert you to make sure you're not relaxing in the wrong terminal,” it added.
