Mobile Future

Speed-Up Your Morning Routine

With the newfound expectation that smartphones are perpetually glued to our hand, Starbucks recently announced it would begin accepting mobile payments via their Starbucks Card Mobile App, which is the fastest way for customers to purchase beverages at Starbucks according to VP of Starbucks Card Brady Brewer.

The app is available for the iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry, and allows customers to purchase their custom-brewed beverages and baked goods by simply holding their smartphone to the 2-D scanner at the register. The mobile app also lets customers add money to their Starbucks account as needed with PayPal or via credit card, view their rewards and current balance.

As more companies begin to realize the benefits of mobile payments and smartphones begin to double as payment devices, gone will be the days when forgetting your wallet is a major crisis.
