I haven’t frequented a Starbucks in a very, very long time. Thankfully I have Crema, the wonderful independant coffee shop mere steps away from my office. So when I need my coffee fix, I’ve got it covered for most of the week.
But Starbucks introduced new functionality to their iPhone app. And I just couldn’t resist the allure of using my iPhone to pay for my drink. And as far as apps go, this one is top notch; packing in a ton of functionality into a minimalist design.
I have spent my entire adult life loathing my wallet, and since I want to be prepared for everything it’s always woefully fatter than it should be. This is the first step towards losing the plastic that bulks up my back pocket.
I just wish I could use it anywhere but Starbucks. Ick.
