Wednesday morning, I received a text from Michelle, who writes Miles, Points and Mai Tais, telling me that the Starbucks App for Runtastic Pro was free this week at Starbucks. So, when I went out to run that morning, I stopped by two Starbucks, looking for these “Pick of the Week” cards. Alas, I saw only cards for Wild Sky, some sort of game.
Little did I know, Starbucks has two Picks of the Week. The one in the store, with the actual cards, and a second one, which is digital, and you get right from the Starbucks App on your smartphone. Dohhh.
So, I checked, and voila, Runtastic Pro, normally $4.95, is indeed Starbuck’s digital Pick of the Week. This app is a GPS-based app, with a social media aspect.
Here are the details of the Runtastic Pro app:
