starbucks-order-ahead

If you haven’t got time to stand around in a Starbucks queue to place your order, the good news is that you no longer have to. The company, which first allowed iPhone users to place orders on the mobile app before reaching the store, has now added the same functionality to the Android app … 

The company has also rolled out the service to all 7,400 wholly-owned stores within the USA. Note that it is not supported by franchised stores, which tend to be smaller.

Starbucks says that the service will be introduced in Canada and the UK next month. The app, which got a Material Design refresh last month, is a free download on Google Play.
