Yes, I’m the Managing Editor of an iPhone blog. So, naturally everyone assumes already that I think Samsung is a company that only knows how to copy. And that I hate anything that doesn’t start with an M or lower case i. With that in mind, let me leave this video showing off Samsung’s new Wallet app. You can judge it for yourselves. I don’t even know where to start except to say: Samsung clearly likes the attention it gets from its various lawsuits with Apple.
The app allows users to store tickets, boarding passes and coupons digitally. It even uses GPS locations to notify the user when it’s near one of their favorite available places to use one of those passes. It doesn’t make use of NFC (yet) and will have services available from companies like Hotels.com, Lufthansa, MLB Advanced Media and a handful of others. Sound familiar yet? It’s a developer preview right now, but will be launched at some point this year.
