For years, Starbucks has offered a free song from iTunes as part of their “Pick of the Week” program. A little in-store display has cards, like the above, with a promo code on the back that you redeem just like you would a iTunes gift card. Last fall, Starbucks expanded the program beyond songs to include “Apps, Books, TV, and More”. I still haven’t figured out what “More” means, but moving on.
As you can see in the picture above, the App Pick of the Week can include some killer apps. Snapseed is a very popular photo editing app that works on both iPhone and iPad. This weeks App Pick of the Week is also a great app, Instapaper. Instapaper is likely the most used app on my iPad. If you own an iPad and don’t have Instapaper, head to your local Starbucks, grab an Americano, and pick up your App Pick of the Week card for your free copy of Instapaper.
I realize this isn’t exactly new information to some, but I just wanted to point out some of the great apps that you can get for free with this program. If you already grab a coffee in the morning, it can be worth it to make your coffee run at Starbucks.
