Lookout Starbucks, there’s a new app in town. Dunkin’ Donuts has just launched an Android payment app, looking to encroach on a mobile empire currently ruled by Starbucks. Now you have two options for paying for coffee with your smartphone, using the reloadable, points-tracking Dunkin’ Donuts app. Also new this week is the WWE app, finally finding a way to offer an official mobile experience. Falcon for Twitter also made a splash this week, debuting a full-screen Android widget for the socially savvy.
Back to school time is often a great opportunity for brands and parents to help raise money for local schools, and Shoparoo makes things easier with a new app that converts your store receipts into school donations. In turn, you earn exclusive rewards, bonuses and coupons. There are no restrictions on the types of products you can purchase, or the stores from which you shop, but donations will be doubled if you purchase a featured brand. To donate, take a photo of your receipt from your Android device camera and submit. Select the school or charity of your choice and help your local community raise funds.
