The coffee maker is now offering free iOS apps via the official Starbucks app, according to CNET.
First launched in 2008, Starbucks’ Pick of the Week program provides customers with digital content freebies. Since 2011, these have included paid content from Apple’s App Store, and iBookstore.
Beginning April 9, the app freebies will show up in the inbox of the Starbucks app, or by accessing the Starbucks Digital Network in-store. Since last fall, Starbucks has been offering free music downloads in a similar manner.
The first title being offered this way is Rovio’s Angry Birds Star Wars.

Of note, the free pick-of-the-week cards are still available in-store with different selections than the digital downloads. To see the current paper and digital offerings, click here.
