Even 9to5Google feels the same way:
Samsung is today officially unveiling its “Samsung Wallet” mobile app solution, and it is quickly gaining attention for similarities to Apple’s iOS 6 ticket, card, and coupon solution known as Passbook. For those familiar with Apple’s app, Samsung Wallet appears to work much the same way.
9to5Google reports the similarities:
As for the Apple influence, aside from the look and feel of the app and icon (pictured above), the Samsung Wallet app doesn’t seem to provide any additional functionality above and beyond what Passbook already offers.
Wow. Well, whatever. Don’t get me wrong, Apple takes “inspiration” from a lot of other popular tech, but this is literally a complete clone of Passbook. Can someone explain the differences to me?
