Starbucks Official Application Hits the App Store

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

##ICON_NAME## Starbucks has finally released an official application titled myStarbucks! The app’s features include;

• Store Locator: Display the closest stores, directions, store hours and amenities—find stores with a drive through, oven warmed food, and more!
• Drink Builder: Create and share your perfect Starbucks® beverages
• Food Menu: Browse the menu and see detailed nutritional info and ingredients
• Coffee Menu: Explore every Starbucks® whole bean coffee
• myStarbucks: Save all of your favorites for quick recall and sharing

There are a few things I really like about this application and one feature that is missing. I love that you can quickly locate nearby stores as well as view all the details about them (that way you know if they are open, if they have a drive through… etc). I also like that you can create favorite drinks for both you are your friends. This is awesome for those Starbucks runs where you are picking something up for a few people in the office or a friend. No need to ask them what they want (again!)… you already have it entered into your iPhone, exactly how they like it! Another cool feature is the ability to invite a friend to Starbucks. Once you have chosen a specific Starbucks location, you can choose to invite a friend from your Contact list to that Starbucks. It gives you a nice template (that can be emailed or text) that includes the store location and a blank space where you can enter the time.

The most obvious feature that the application is missing is the ability to send your order to a store. As far as I can tell, there is no way to do so. It would be awesome, if on your way to Starbucks, you could send in all your drink orders and they could get started on them (or have it done) by the time you get there!

Other than that… I like the app, but I’m totally addicted to Starbucks so I might be slightly bias. Though, I will say that the app doesn’t quite live up to the Starbucks Concept App from back in the day.
