StarBucks Shazam
Starbucks and Apple has always be good friends their relationship dates back to 2007 with a deal that had Apple offering a special Starbucks section of its iTunes Music Store, with Starbucks-curated music picks that would appear when iPhone or iPod Touch users were on the store’s Wi-Fi network. This time Starbucks offers something new for every iPhone or iPod user that orders a cup of Starbucks coffee. A free App Store application.

“Using the same “Pick of the Week” cards the two companies have been using since April 2008, Starbucks is now using that same system to dole out iPhone applications.”

Its only available in the US at this point. Lets hope Starbucks will also offer this in other countries soon.

“The first application to be offered for free is Shazam Encore (iTunes), a music-identifying app that sells for $5.99 in the U.S. version of the App Store. That is a considerable deal compared to new music tracks, which typically top out at $1.29.”
