Pass Viewer

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (18 votes)

This is a simple viewer for PassBook® files.

The app searches the file system, starting in the home directory, for passes, and shows them in a list. A tap on the pass shows the details including the barcode (usually the most important thing). The design is simplified compared to the original app, but should be readable.

Passes close to the relevant time are highlighted. It's also possible to highlight passes close to relevant coordinates (check settings). The top highlighted pass is shown on the cover, with the cover action opening the pass directly. Also, highlighted passes are shown in the event view, while the app is running. Calendar entries can be made from passes with a relevant time.

Passes containing an update link may be updated. Changed fields will be marked the first time the pass is viewed after the update.

I tried it to see train e-tickets (pdf) but the app does not detect them. What kind of 'passes' does it read? What is it ultimately for? The description is not clear enough. WTF is passbook???

p2501's picture

Passbook is a well known, widespread file format (extension .pkpass). It's commonly used for boarding passes, but also for tickets, loyalty cards and so on. PDFs should show up in the Documents app instead. And no, I won't include a description what Passbook is for the same reason that, say, an ePub Viewer app doesn't explain what ePub is in its description. The app description should be brief and not contain info, that those looking for the app probably know anyway.

BTW: Apple renamed it to Wallet. But as far as I can surmise, that didn't really catch on.

Thanks for the great app! Looking forward some other great features!

I have contrast problems with the application: 33c3 tickets have a black background and there are black fonts are shown. So there is no contrast. The ticket should look like in this tweet (probably an apple device):

Please send me the offending pass (don't worry, I won't abuse it ;-) ), so I can check why the color is misinterpreted. However, I'm currently mostly afk due to the holiday season, so it might be a while, sorry. You may use the "simple view" option from the pulley menu as a stopgap solution.

Doesn't find any passes in current SailfishOS version.

p2501's picture

Please try again with the new version. If the problem persists, please give me more info. Otherwise, I can't help.

p2501's picture

Release 0.4-2 should finally fix both the disappearing passes as well as the non-disappearing notifications.

Thanks for the bug reports. After all, I can't fix what I don't know about. ;-)

The latest version doesn't show any passes for me as well. I therefore reverted back to the release on Jolla store, which still finds the passes.

I also have a problem that for some reason I cannot delete pass viewer notifications from the events screen:-(

p2501's picture

Okay, I can reproduce the problem with the undeletable notifications. Apparantly, the behaviour of the notification system changed slightly in the newest OS release, and I need to adapt.

As for the passes not showing, I'm stumped. If anything, the OpenRepos version should show passes that the Harbour version doesn't, not the other way round. Now, petros never sent me a pass, so I couldn't actually check what's wrong. Can you send me one? Thanks.

petros's picture

latest version doesn't show any passes on my jolla!! any idea why?

p2501's picture

There might be a problem with the signature check. Try the "accept faulty signatures" option in the settings.

If this happens to be the problem, please send me a pass (you may use the mail address in the changelog), so I can have a look at it. You may use an old, expired one.

petros's picture

no, that didn't solve the problem. prevous version work fine!

p2501's picture

There was a bug which rendered the "accept faulty signatures" option useless. Please try again.

If it works now, there still probably is a problem with the signature check.

Can't get this idea out of my head, sorry... :-)
