We first met with Lambeth Country Show before Christmas, where we exchanged ideas about how they could streamline the process of collecting, sorting, and communicating with hundreds of applicants who come together to make this amazing 42-year old show what it is.

There's nothing worse on site than hungry crew.
Ok, there are worse things, but you definitely, really don't want your crew going hungry if you can help it.

Here's part one of our rough guide to using Passbook on your iPhone. We'll cover Android later so that no-one feels left out. (BlackBerry and Windows Mobile - really? Do you need to ask?)
Although Passbook has been around for a couple of years now, if you're anything like me it's one of those apps you shove into a folder
