Arriving very fashionably late to the party, the ever-trendy Starbucks has finally updated its iOS application to be compatible with the new 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5 and latest iPod touch. If you’re a caffeine fiend or avid scarf-wearer, you can download version 2.5.2 of the official Starbucks application from the App Store now. Other than the screen optimization, the app update comes with the usual serving of half-caf, mocha bug fixes and it also features a few no-whip, low-fat sound effects.
The Starbucks application has been Passbook-compatible since the first week of October, so I’m a bit confused as to why it took the company so long to update its application for the iPhone 5. I guess the developers just got a bit too caught up on those novels they were working on while sipping their Chai teas and listening to artists you’ve probably never heard of… but, better late than never.
