The next time you want to head down to your local Starbucks, there ought to be a new method of payment that might just stoke you. We’re talking about the launch of mobile payment in all US company-operated stores, where you can pay for in-store purchases with select smartphones (we’re talking about the iPhone, iPod touch and BlackBerry devices only, making us wonder how come Android-powered phones are left out of the picture). This will continue where the Starbucks Card Mobile App left off, where all you need to do is download the free Starbucks Card Mobile App and you’re good to go. The same app allows you to manage your Starbucks Card account, check your card balance, reload your card with any major credit card as well as keep tabs on your My Starbucks Rewards status. Thirsting for a tall mocha? That’s a snap, as this app will also help you locate a nearby Starbucks store with the store locator feature. BlackBerry coffee lovers can get their app here, while iDevice owners can head on here. [Press Release]
