Coffee isn’t just that sludge they serve in your office and at the car dealership. For many of us, it’s a religion.
It is no coincidence that there are people out there who can’t imagine going a day without the stuff and don’t bat an eye at dropping hundreds of dollars each year in coffee houses. For some, it’s a cultural experience, a comfortable part of the morning routine or a beautiful work of art.
Whether you take your daily java black as night or you only occasionally find yourself sipping a lightly sweetened latte, there are a handful of apps in the Android Market to help you get the most joy out of each cup.
We have compiled a list of apps that will help you to track down local coffee houses, make your own coffee shop-quality beverages drinks at home or quickly hop to the front of that long line at Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbucks.
When you’re in a rush, even a wait in a short line won’t do. Splick-it for your Android phone allows you to order and pay for your coffee from your phone so that you can just walk in and walk right back out. Ignore the line, grab your drink and be on your way. The app only works with certain businesses, though, some of which include (but are not limited to) Bruegger’s Bagels, Juice it Up, Smiling Moose and Brewing Market. The developers have noted, though, that new locations are constantly being added, so check back frequently.
