Passbook-like Samsung Wallet now available on select Galaxy devices

If you have been wanting iOS-like Passbook functionality that the iPhone 5 has on Android, then Samsung has the answer for you- provided that your Android device is a Galaxy SIII, Galaxy SIV, Samsung Galaxy Note, or last year’s Galaxy Note II.

The Samsung Wallet allows for a method to store and manage purchased content such as tickets for concerts, membership cards, product coupons, and the like.

The Android application enables syncing with the other Samsung apps and data with your Samsung account, which you could use across your other Samsung devices and receive push notifications on all of them so it’s easy to locate your data no matter the device or Wallet-supported app.

Samsung Wallet won't have NFC functionality for the time being- just like Passbook!

However the drawback is that with so few Galaxy-branded handsets able to support the current edition of Samsung Wallet, it will be unlikely potential users will have more than one of those supported models. So the push and sync feature of the Samsung Wallet does not seem like it will be all that useful although it could have set the Wallet apart from Passbook.

Back in February, several sites were mentioned to be Wallet-compliant, including Booking.com and Hotels.com but as of right now the Samsung Wallet is not capable of making transactions only storing and maintaining deals and bookings.

So if you have one of those supported Galaxys, you will be able to download the Wallet app from the Google Play Store.
