Starbucks On The iPhone

October 8, 2010 by Ryan Ray 

We’ve talked about Starbucks a little bit before, you can read a full on app review over here. But going a long with our series of apps you can order from this app takes a little different turn. Sadly you can’t order from the Starbucks app, but that’s why I wanted to bring it to everyone’s attention. I think you should be able to place a drink order and be able to stop by and pick it up without waiting. The current app allows you to get pretty close to that. You can build a custom drink, or order a familiar, old standby. You can check out different roasts, find store, check out food, even look for jobs! Sadly like said, no way to order and get your stuff at your local Starbucks. If you are out there Starbucks listen up and implement this somehow.

That’s what the app looks like for the most part. The drink builder can get pretty involved and it’s actually quite fun to try and see what you come up with. They also show you the nutritional info on your drinks. I like that a lot.

Anyway, here is the system I’ve devised in my head. You have your drink builder, you have blends to grab, you have the store locater, you even have food to get! Update the app and allow all of these items to be added to your “bag.” So you’ve got your bag and you are ready to checkout. You should be able to then find any nearby store and send the order there. You can use your Starbucks cards to pay, credit card, PayPal, etc… so it’s already been paid for when you get there. I’m sure they won’t make an order if you aren’t going to show up and pay for it. So, then all you must do is drive up to the Starbucks, go in or through the drive through, and show them your receipt and order number from your iPhone and they’ll give you your order! Simple as pie!

I know this would be a cool system to use, and am I sure it’s 100% logical… I don’t know. I’m not a programming genius to know how this would all work out, but I think it is definitely possible. So what do you think? Dumb idea or does it have some potential. Leave a comment with how your think ordering Starbucks from the iPhone should work. Thanks so much for reading!

    You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really one thing that I feel I’d by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely large for me. I’m looking ahead for your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get the hold of it!
