Starbucks Launches 2 Official iPhone Apps

Starbucks iPhone app

The good folks over at Starbucks just launched two iPhone apps. One app, myStarbucks, allows users to find stores, build drinks, and browse the coffee chain’s menu and find nutritional information.

The other app, Starbucks Card Mobile, gives users a virtual Starbucks Card and in 16 select stores in Silicon Valley and Seattle, users will be able to use this app to pay for their drinks. The app will display a barcode that the baristas at these stores will be able to scan. In addition, the mobile payment app will also allow users to check their card’s balance, reload it with any major credit card, and view their transaction history. For now, this feature will only be available in these two test markets, which, according to Starbucks, were chosen because of the high usage rates iPhones and Starbucks’ loyalty cards. After this trial, Starbucks will decide whether it will bring this feature to other markets. [via]

I, personally, can’t wait for the Starbucks Card Mobile app to be usable in my area.
