After months of waiting, the official Starbucks app for Windows Phone has been released. The app, similar to the one available for Android and iOS, allows you to pay for your coffee or food items at participating shops with your phone. This is done by providing a barcode which is connected to your Starbucks account (which in turn is tied to a credit card) that is displayed on your phone and scanned at the register. It is quick and simple and as one who has been using their app on other platforms, it is about time it got to Windows Phone!
If you have been trying to add your Gmail account to your Windows Phone over the past few days and keep getting an error, you are not alone. Currently when users attempt to add their Gmail account to their phone, they get an error indicating that the browser (Edge) is not supported and provides links to download other browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer). But, as you will know, that’s not an option for Windows Phone users.
The issue, it seems, is with Google and this isn’t the first time this particular issue has popped up.
