Fresh iOS7 Look and Feel

It boasts a brighter color scheme, simplified icons and a ‘cleaner’ design while being fully compatible with the current iOS6 operating system as well as iOS7 ready. 2.0 is delivered as a standard feature for all PassKit clients.  Smartphone users will see this beautiful landing page for any pass template that has a dynamic field that allows the pass holder to enter their own value.  This is as simple as checking the box in the The PassKit Portal.
