Starbucks U.S. does give beans about Windows Phone, plans on offering an app for consumers
If you're a coffee drinker in the U.S. who swallows the stuff by the gallons at Starbucks, you can pay to get your caffeine fix using the iOS and Android app as a mobile payment service. If you're a Windows Phone owner, you might have had to rely on downing cans of Coca-Cola to get your caffeine. That's because Starbucks doesn't support the platform in the states. Well, at least it didn't until now.

According to a tweet from Seattle Times reporter Janet Tu, Starbucks announced at its annual stockholder's meeting today that it will soon be launching a U.S. based Starbucks app for Windows Phone. The app will join other Windows Phone powered Starbucks apps in use in other countries like Mexico and Russia.

While there happens to be a third-party Windows Phone app called Buckstar that will work in the states, most consumers probably prefer to use the official Starbucks app. Now that the company has made its intentions clear at the annual stockholders' meeting, we imagine that the app should be launching soon.
