Starbucks rolls out Android App with mobile payment

We know there are plenty of you coffee junk heads out there, who can’t got a day without strolling into a Starbucks store and picking yourself up the latest flavor on that new Frappuccino. If you’re packing an Android phone (Apple devices already have an app), life just got easier for you with the new Starbucks Android App, which supports mobile payments as well. All you do it download the app (from the link below) and add your credit card details to the app. Then simply scan the app’s barcode at the counter and you’re all good to take away that Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino topped with whipped cream and perhaps chocolate flakes!

Now note, that this is only available for those devices running Android 2.1 and above (which let’s face it is most devices these days). The App will now also locate your closest Starbucks in relation to you, making your trip even quicker. The system works with 6,800 stores currently, although more will be added in due time. Download the app from the source below!
