Open PKPASS File

The PKPASS format files were created by Apple to digitally store credit cards, loyalty cards, flight tickets and the like.

PKPASS files have become a de facto standard and are officially opened with the Apple Passbook app, pre-installed on all iPhones.

In the case of Android mobiles, they do not come with an app that opens them, however, there are applications on Google Play that can open them without problems.

In general terms, PKPASS files are ZIP-type files that contain everything necessary to generate the ticket or loyalty card, and in practice this means several PNG images, JSON files and others.

It is important to know that the content of the PKPASS file is encrypted to prevent it from being modified by the user, although this does not apply to some of its components such as images included in the banknote or some of the texts.

Finally, there is little that can be done manually with a PKPASS file, it only takes an application to open, interpret and display it on the screen.

In iOS 6 higher that is the job of Passbook, while in Android there are "unofficial" applications that do exactly the same.
