Starbucks app gets Uber integration for rides to stores

If you’re jonesing for a coffee and it’s too far to walk, the Starbucks iOS app was just updated with Uber integration. Now you can call a black car to get your black coffee.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

When you click on the Uber button in the Starbucks app for a store you’d like to visit, it launches the Uber app. From there it’s the typical Uber experience except at the end you get a hot cup of caffeine.

The update also addressed some sign-up concerns experienced by some customers, and tackled the usual bug fixes and enhancements.
