The service of People’s Card will be stopped in one month

People’s Card has been removed from Apple Store for a long time. Although people who downloaded that before could still use it, since the backend server is still keeping running, it could not work forever for there would not be enough budget to support that.

So I must apologize to people who enjoyed People’s Card, and who purchased IAP to create more cards beyond the free ones. I plan to shutdown the server one month later. All the passes / cards that you created and distributed would be still visible in Passbook. But you could no longer modify them and automatically update the distributed ones.

I have published the server implementation details for any one who wants to build similar service. Please check https://whenitsdone.org/2012/12/21/build-a-fully-functional-robust-and-secure-passbook-server-with-almost-zero-cost/

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

People’s Card Released on AppStore

People’s Card is a free utility app to explore the maximum potential of iOS 6’s revolutionary Passbook system.

It helps you to create your very own passes and cards, and place them in your iPhone’s Passbook. You could easily distribute them to other people as you will.

It could be used to create your personal & business card, or event tickets when you are organizing a party. For people who is executing a small business, the app would be also valuable. You may want to create awesome coupons and membership cards, for your customers who have an iPhone.

Unlike the traditional card makers, you could freely change the content of our passes and cards whenever there is an update. And the people who have the card will have it refreshed immediately.

Update:

More details, including screenshots and videos, could be found here.
