Starbucks has released a new version of their iPhone app to finally add support for Passbook. It was the most eagerly awaited app that comes with Passbook support.
In addition to paying from Starbucks for iPhone, you can now add a Starbucks Card to Passbook, which can then be used to pay at over 6,800 U.S. company-operated Starbucks and 2,000 Target and Safeway locations.
