Starbucks App Update Brings Mobile Order & Pay

Starbucks has dropped an update to their official app in the Google Play Store that rolls out nationally the Order & Pay functionality.  The update is build 3.2 for those keeping score at home and you can now order your favorite Starbucks drink or food item, order and pay for it on your Android phone, then simply go to the store and pick up your order.  No more waiting in queues!

The update is available now in the Google Play Store and expands the Order & Pay function as part of the rollout the company announced today.  While it is only available in the United States currently, it is expected that support for the feature will roll to the United Kingdom and Canada in October.  It should also be noted that the feature only works with Starbucks company stores, not those run by franchises.

Starbucks for Android Update Improves eGift Redemption

The Starbucks for Android app has been updated today, bringing substantially improved eGift redemption within the app.  The update, version 3.1.1 for those keeping score at home, promises “seamless” eGfit redemption for users.  This will be a welcome change to many as the previous builds of the app struggled to get the eGift applied properly to accounts.  That, hopefully, is a thing of the past with this update.

Starbucks Locator App for Windows Phone With Another Major Update

If there is one app in my life that I truly miss since coming back to Windows Phone it is the Starbucks app.  The company doesn’t make an official one for Windows Phone and I thought I had found the answer in MyBucks for Windows Phone but it has since been pulled from the Windows Phone Store as well.  Imagine my surprise then when I saw the Starbucks Locator app in the Store and not only that, the developer (Lancelot Software) is doing an epic job of keeping it up to date with new features and fixes.  Last week it receive a major update to version 2.0 with complete new UI and other updates.  Today it has received another major update, this one brining more security, a reduced app size and several new fixes.  The update, version 2.1 for those keeping score at home, is available now in the Windows Phone Store.
