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.

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
