Windows Phone users also drink coffee; MyBucks is a Starbucks app for the platform

Back in 2013, Starbucks said it would not support a Windows Phone app. But if we are not mistaken, Windows Phone users also drink coffee, and many of them actually consume the stuff at Starbucks. That is why Windows Phone developer Elliot Forde has come up with MyBucks. This is a Starbucks client for Windows Phone handsets, that will do everything but drink your cup of Joe for you...

WP currently has over 50 million users, Starbucks isn't a very smart it seems ,every sale is a dollar earned. One thing WP has always had is great client apps, much respect to those developers.

Sure there's 50 or 60 million WP users, how many are in the US? 58% of Starbuck locations are in the US, where WP is not as popular. Before you bash me as a troll I own a Lumia 1020. Personally many apps on WP are not nearly as good as Android or iOS.

unless you use 6tag which is better than instagram imo, with the ability to download the picture or video, it is more capable.

Good point. It certainly helps that WP doesn't have "US-centric" apps since third party apps do a much better job to provide unrestricted apps.

Sometimes I feel it's better off that independent developers make these apps. If a large corporation is uninterested in even making an app for the platform, then any app that they do eventually make for it would probably be pretty half-baked. But an independent developer has motive to make a good app, and they usually manage to make it more attractive and less bloated.
