Starbucks has announced that it will be bringing it’s mobile payment app already available Stateside to the UK in the new year. The one-touch mobile app will allow you to enter any one of 700 Starbucks coffee shops and pay through the tech. The app will be available on both iPhones and iPods.
This seems to be in response to customers having to wait far too long for their morning/afternoon brew and will save a vital 10 seconds per transaction – not a huge amount of time you might think, but imagine if this kind of tech was embedded in every shop on the high street; you could end up saving minutes.
