Or 45, at most, according to the company president. The official Starbucks Windows Phone app is already in the works, and we got the hint that it is in development a few days back.
The middle of this month, actually.
New information on the matter reveals that the debut of this anticipated application is expected to take place in approximately one month from now. This has been revealed by company president and chief operating officer Kevin Johnson — who is also a former Microsoft executive.
He was quoted as saying:
“Our team has been working in partnership with Microsoft and we are within 30 to 45 days of releasing a Windows Phone app.”
What is not currently known is what kind of features the Windows Phone flavor of the client will launch with, and whether we can expect the anticipated app to have the same functionality as the iOS and Android versions of the official Starbucks application.
These versions allow customers to see locations of nearby stores on an interactive map, gain points for every purchase, and also pay for drinks with the app, among other functionalities.
They can also order before arriving at the store, add gratuities for the employees, and all that.
We can also expect the app to be universal and work on both Windows 10 PCs and mobile phones.
In any case, the pending release of a high-profile application like this will pave the way for other companies and developers to give Microsoft’s mobile operating system a look. Interesting times could be ahead.
