Android 4.2 Breaks Starbucks App [Updated]

Starbucks Android app users who upgraded their device to 4.2 are getting an unwelcome surprise when trying to pay for a Starbucks purchase.

Galaxy Nexus owners who upgraded to the latest version of Jelly Bean (myself included) are reporting the Starbucks app repeatedly force quits.

A Starbucks spokesperson said the company is at work on a fix to the problem.

“We’re aware of this issue and working to resolve it,” she said.

Uninstalling and reinstalling the app also did not resolve the bug.

The Starbucks app for Android is designed to manage one’s account, keep track of rewards, and of course pay for drinks. The most recent fix, according to the app page on Google Play, was for an incorrect bar code displaying.

A number of users in the app’s review section and in other Android forums are also reporting the app no longer functions with the 4.2 update. The complaints came from those who were using the GSM Galaxy Nexus.

The update itself came with some issues, including many users reporting severe battery drain and the phone temperature becoming abnormally high.
