As usual, the US gets a lot of things before us Brits, one of which is the ability to walk into a Starbucks, order their coffee and pay using an app on their iPhone, which has made me jealous since the start of this year. But thankfully Starbucks will be allowing us to access this simply great feature by the 5th of January 2012, which is defiantly one more thing to look forward to in the new year.

If you don’t know about the application yet it basically lets you link your Starbucks card onto your iPhone, which you can then scan in any of Starbucks 700+ UK stores, eliminating any need to bring any money with your or even your wallet, all you need is your phone.

Personally, I cannot wait for this to be released here, and will go perfectly with their already released iTunes ‘Pick of the Week’ giveaway and their more recent introduction of free Wi-Fi in store.

What do you think? Is this an App you would use?
