    I love the Windows phone platform, however if there isn't a Starbucks App. added to the Store soon I'm going to move back to IOS. I'm always receiving Starbuck gift cards and my wife ends up getting to use them because she has an App (IOS) that allows her to load them on to. My wallet already has to many cards in it so I don't need gift cards plugging it up.
    IMO MSFT needs to start writing more corporate Apps for third parties very soon or your going to lose even us Windows phone FAN's.

    When are we going to see an Official Starbucks App?

    Microsoft cannot provide a Starbucks app. That would be up to Starbucks.

    There had been third-party apps, but those were pulled.

    You can use the mobile Starbucks website to pay for drinks/food, reload cards, etc... I've used it and it works well. Also, you can pin the Starbucks web site to your start menu for easy access.

    On the band2 page, it says that you can use your new band2 to pay at Starbucks.

    Yes, you can do that on both the original and upcoming band 2. Only drawback is that there is no way to check your balance or reload.

    tl;dr - there will be no official starbucks app for the forseable future other than the Band app

    Hi
    Thank you all for the replies, appreciated.
    I will try loading my gift cards onto the Starbucks Official URL and see how that goes.
    I understand that MSFT can't be writing APPS for corporations without there consent, however can't they negotiate some kind of a deal to entice them into the Windows platform?
    MSFT really needs to shout out loud right now and promote the hell out of W10 and the new Lumia 950, and start with exposing Apple as the lagers that they really are. GET POLITICAL!

    My barista told me that it was "pretty cool" after I used my band to pay for coffee this morning.

    Now they just need to get on board with an app. 😌

    I went to the Starbucks URL but could not figure out how to pay with my phone. I do have a card already registered with the site. How do I pay?
