Starbucks has released in app for the iPhone, so now besides getting free wi-fi from AT&T hotspots, you can now buy your coffee and songs from Apple iTunes at the same time.
Now available in the App Store, myStarbucks, and Starbucks Card Mobile let users find their nearest Starbucks and manage their Starbucks Card. If you live near one of 16 stores in the Seattle or San Francisco Bay Area, you can even pay for your purchases with the Starbucks Card Mobile app via barcode.
Some may argue that their are apps that already help you find a store location, and check your card balance, but some of those are pay-for apps, while Starbucks app is free, and offers a lot of functionality. For instance, rather than just finding a store with the built-in GPS or wi-fi locator, you can use the Starbucks app to search for stores that have a drive-thru, by operating hours to be sure they are open when you get there, and you can even invite friends to join you at that Starbucks.
Another cool feature is the ability to customize and save drink configurations, which you simply show to the barista.
The app was developed by Small Society. Great app!
