Costa Coffee launches first mobile app
Dubai, July 14, 2013
Leading coffee brand Costa Coffee has launched its first mobile app in the UAE becoming the first coffee chain to launch a mobile app in the region.
The app features a distinct navigation tool, complete online product details, social media integration, store finder options and uses the custom Costa colours red and cream.
The app’s unique store finder feature works on an activated GPS system and helps in locating or be notified about the nearest Costa Coffee stores. Mobile app users can now play games and listen to music on the go. Users can now stream music from their favourite Internet radio stations or playlists while being mobile. The app also comes with pre-built templates of Sudoku and Crossword games where users can set challenges to receive instant awards.
A new approach to the Costa Coffee Mobile App is the Social Media Integration which allows users to engage with their preferred social media channels, create events and invite other users to join them.
Users will also be able to set up their own Costa Coffee events. One can freely sign in with Facebook, Foursquare, Google Plus and Twitter for seamless social media integration.
Eric Hughes, general manager, Costa Coffee UAE, said the release of the new mobile app will provide potential and existing customers with the communication tool they always needed.
“This platform will help Costa Coffee build and develop an interactive relationship with their customers,” he added.
The Costa Coffee Mobile App is available for download for free from the Apple Store online and is compatible with all Apple devices. – TradeArabia News Service
