The New Starbucks App and Case Makes Paying for Coffee Easier Than Ever

You can now pay for coffee at Starbucks with a tap of your phone case through a new Starbucks app. Uniform Experiment, a men's apparel store in Japan, has collaborated with Starbucks to create the Starbucks Touch phone case.

The app allows customers to order their drink, and tap -- with very same phone they used to order -- to pay for the purchase. The app also has a history feature and will allow coffee lovers to track their purchases.

Aesthetically, the case varies from a simple case with a Starbucks logo on a faux sleeve to resemble the famous cup. Another design includes a series of colorful squares accompanied by the same faux sleeve, off centered of course.

As it stands, the case is only available in two stores in Japan and only for the iPhone 6.
