Flint Mobile enhances iOS app for better Passbook integration
Flint Mobile today announced enhancements to its iOS app that leverage Apple’s expanding digital wallet ecosystem.
The Redwood City, California-based company said in a press release that new upgrades include SMS-delivered receipts and coupons that can be imported into Apple Wallet (currently known as Passbook). Flint believes the new features will enable its clients to generate repeat business by simplifying coupon creation, distribution, storage and redemption for iPhone business users and their customers.
Flint said businesses can create offers in the app and send text messages with links that automatically download customized coupons into the Apple Wallet. The app will handle redemption via an embedded QR code reader, according to the announcement.
This update is the first of a series of new features that Flint is developing for its iOS app, according to the press release. As an Apple mobility partner, Flint will add iOS-specific features to its own app as well collaborate with other business app developers working on the iOS platform.
"Working closely with Apple will enable us to accelerate our efforts to build easy access to Passbook and eventually Apple Wallet as well as to deliver more features that enable our customers to manage their businesses directly from their iOS devices," said Greg Goldfarb, co-founder and CEO of Flint.
