Just a heads up that this has been officially released by Starbucks. It was made available yesterday (Wednesday 19 Jan 2011). You can get it by visiting Starbucks Card Mobile
on your device's browser.
And if you're having a problem with the in-app Store Locator not finding your location, I've written a quick troubleshooting how to
. Its on my website but I've copied and pasted it here so no one has to leave their favorite Blackberry forum. :D
Own a Blackberry and just installed the new Starbucks Card Mobile
but you're having problems with Store Locator finding your location? First, try using the in-app Store Locator closer to the Starbucks' window or door. Blackberry GPS seems to work better when there is a clear-ish view of the sky.
If that doesn't help, try this quick tip
to make sure the GPS on your Blackberry is working properly:
- Go to Options, select Advanced, then select GPS
- Press the Menu (Blackberry logo) key and select "Refresh GPS"
- The message "Scanning for satellites..." will display. Be patient as this can take a long time
No luck? Make sure you didn't accidentally click "Deny" at the screen below.
The good news is if you did click Deny but did not select Do Not Ask Again, you will be prompted again to allow the application to access your GPS. Just select Allow the next time the above dialog comes up.
If that doesn't work, be sure to read the rest of the Troubleshooting Built-in GPS on Blackberry
post over at Pinstack.com. That should take you from seeing this
to doing more of what you want; paying for your coffee even if you left that Starbucks card at home.
What's that? You have not downloaded it yet? You can do so by SMSing GO to 70845 or by visiting Starbucks Card Mobile
Happy Starbucks-ing! Anyone use it to buy a Trenta yet?
