Dear all,

I’m the author of Pass for iOS.

Thanks for your interests on Pass for iOS. The origin of the app was from the need of mine, and there was no good option at that time. I choose to create my own app. The app have some essential functions and works well most of the time. It is an open source project. Yishi and I are actively polishing the app. I also subscribed the Apple Developer program ($99/year) to publish the app in App Store. I am very happy to see the growth of the app. Therefore, I hope the community can help us.
  1. Please feel free to submit an issue to the GitHub repo, and patiently wait me to try my best to solve/close it.
  2. Submit PRs to us to solve a small issue.

Thank you so much.
