      Any chance you could link directly to the app, and not to a specific marketplace. We are not all US citizens  Angel

      Did you make the Starbucks app because you wanted one and thought it was a worthwhile project to work on or did Starbucks ask you to develop a WP7 app?
      I know Starbucks certainly wasn't interested in Windows Phone when it first came out.
      It's stuff like this that makes a difference when promoting a new mobile OS. The little things people use every day might not be as news-worthy as Angry Birds but they actually help more with word of mouth advertising.

      By the way. In Canada, anywhere with any population might not have a Starbucks but they definitely have a Tim Horton's Smiley

      @dentaku: We wrote the app because we love Starbucks and wanted a WP7 app. Then we thought, "Hey, might as well share it with other WP7 users!"  Yes, it's definitely been a worthwhile project to work on and it's been fun developing for Windows Phone.

      Thank you for your comments about it helping to make a difference for the WP7 platform.  Smiley  

      I haven't tried Tim Horton's yet, but I wish I tried it when I took a vacation to Canada last year! Guess I will have to take another vacation. Tongue Out

      You'll haev to try the iced cappuccino.
      I've never tried anything from Starbucks actually. I don't like drinking hot stuff  like cofee or tea.

      Laura,  Any chance you will do a recap or highlight past apps again?  Maybe like a Hot 20 list of apps for the year.  My Shut The Box game was featured last April and hopefully would make your Top 20 list especially now since there is also a free version with achievements and leaderboards.  If interested, here's the link  http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/apps/1845cc67-dc66-457a-8d10-417813ed3c93

      I just found this fun WP app named Morpho. It's better than I expected when I first started watching a video demo of it.
