Coffee giant Starbucks has announced that it will disable its Starbucks Card Mobile app for RIM's BlackBerry platform at the end of the month.
New downloads of the app actually discontinued in October last year. But Starbucks still allowed existing users to use the app if they had already downloaded it.
Starbucks has emailed BlackBerry users, instructing them to go to one of its cafes to have their balance transferred to a plastic card before August 28.
The company's mobile presence remains alive and well on Apple's iOS and Google's Android. The company launched mobile payments for Android devices in Canada in July and back in April boasted that it had processed an astonishing 40 million mobile payments in just over a year.
