At PadGadget we’re big fans of Starbucks Pick of the Week program. Sure, we’d love it even more if they gave away apps every single week, but it is nice to get the musical pick without heading out to the coffee shop.
Through its iOS app Starbucks notifies iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users whenever there is a new free song to download, which happens about once a week.
While the app doesn’t run natively on the iPad, it does work. Find the notifications under the app’s message section. Tap the song you wish to download. Then tap the “get it free on iTunes” button.
As soon as iTunes opens enter your Apple ID. Then simply wait for the song to download. Once downloaded, the song will be listed under the purchased section for the associated Apple ID, so a user may add it to any of her iOS devices.
Either head into Starbucks and snag a card, or use the app, and be sure to enjoy this week’s tune “You Found Another Love (I Lost Another Friend)” by Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite.
