Your Morning Coffee Run Just Got Easier

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:24 PM EDT
Starbucks is teaming up with Square, a service letting shoppers pay with their smartphones.  All customers have to do is download the app and pay for your latte with a simple scan of a bar-code.

This new app is similar to Starbucks' existing mobile payment app, but this gives the customer another option. Eventually the app will go a step further, allowing your phone to recognize when you're in a Starbucks.  It will notify the store, and your name and photo will appear at the register -- all you have to do is say your name, the cashier matches your account, and your payment is processed.

The pay by phone service will begin this fall at seven-thousand Starbucks locations.
