Samsung has just released Samsung Wallet onto the Google Play Store and it looks to provide Galaxy users with the Apple Passbook app they’ve been missing. Before you download, don’t get this confused with the NFC-based Google Wallet — there are no actual transactions to be done using this app.
Instead, Samsung Wallet acts like a physical wallet, simply storing and organizing all your membership cards, coupons, event tickets and whatever else. Because this is a Samsung app, it remains exclusive to their Galaxy line of devices and is only currently compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note, and Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
The best part is other apps can take advantage of Samsung Wallet, by a handy “Load to Samsung Wallet” button appearing in some of your favorite apps. At launch, Samsung Wallet is only supported by specific retailers like Walgreens, Expedia.com, Booking.com, Hotels.com and more. If this sounds useful to you, grab Samsung Wallet via the link below.
