Pay Your Drinks With Your Android Device

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 15 years or so, you will likely recognize a Starbucks shop from a mile away (either by sight or smell). This brand has become an integral part of our daily lives and it seems that they will not just stop at serving us coffee and delicious pastries. There is an app for Apple devices, which basically will turn your i-device into a credit or gift card. This is a convenient tool for when you go out for a walk, carrying nothing but your phone and suddenly you feel an urge for coffee. If you were feeling a bit left out, worry not because XDA member Ethan Allison brings us this capability for Android. This app will allow you to scan a gift card and display it, so that you can pay with it instead. You will feel good about not filling up the environment with used cards, and you will feel even better about having your caffeine fix without shelling out a dime from your wallet.

Please leave some feedback for the dev since this app is still in early stages.

For some reason Starbucks doesn’t have an Android mobile pay app. So I made one!

Pretty simple now, only things it does are get the barcode and save it for later.

You can find more information in the application thread.

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
