myStarbucks Canada iPhone App Released

Starbucks has released an official iPhone app for Canadians. The app is called myStarbucks Canada and includes extensive information on coffee beverages, snacks, and food. It also locates all the locations near your location and includes key info like store hours, address, phone number, etc.

Here’s the official description:

Finally the official Canadian iPhone application from Starbucks! Want to find a store that’s open, with a drive through? Now you can do that and more with myStarbucks.

What I would’ve liked to have seen was the ability to check your Starbucks card balance, or even pay for purchases right from your iPhone. The app did crash a couple times on my 3GS and froze on my 3G. For a Starbucks lover like myself, this app is fun to use. You can setup your hot/cold drinks and share them with friends.

As you can see, downtown Vancouver has an abundance of locations (almost overkill lol):
