Starbucks App for WP8 Available (and GREAT!)

The app is called SBUX Card, by a third-party developer, and it's fantastic! I had been using a picture of the barcode from the iPhone app, which worked for payment but didn't provide any account info. With the latest update to the SBUX Card app, however, we're equal to or ahead of the official Starbucks app for other platforms.

What's missing is the ability to reload your card from within the app. But in all honesty, it was always problematic to use this feature on my iPhone and I mostly ended up using the web browser to handle this function. But here's where the iPhone app still shines brightest: Auto-Reload. In order to set up auto-reload to key off your balance you must do it via the iPhone app. If you do it with any web browser by logging into your account the only way to key your reloads is by date. No option to reload when your balance drops below a certain level! How is this not the DEFAULT method??

Some folks are slamming this app for the Store Finder feature not working. Personally I've not tried it because I know where my local Starbucks locations are. But in a strange city you would have to rely on a different app like City Lens, or Poynt. The app got 4 stars even with a bunch of people giving it only one star because of the locator failure.
