Briefly: Starbucks iOS app adds tipping, more PFiddlesoft updates
Thursday, March 20, 2014 @ 5:53pm

Starbucks' iPhone application has received an update, finally released today following an App Store delay. Redesigned with an improved interface and a personalized dashboard experience, the app now features digital tipping for US company-operated stores. Users will receive a push notification after each eligible transaction, and can tip their barista up to two hours after their purchase.



Starbucks v3 also includes a "Shake-to-Pay" function, allowing a shaking gesture to display the paying barcode at the register. Additionally added is the ability to share rewards milestones on Facebook and Twitter, and one's entire account history can now be viewed in a consolidated feed.

PFiddlesoft releases UI Actions 2.2.1, UI Browser 2.4.3, updated PFAssistive Frameworks As reported last week, PFiddlesoft released software updates for PFAssistive Framework, and AppleScript utility UI Actions. Today, PFiddlesoft released new versions, citing minor bug fixes. PFAssistive Frame v3.3.1a and PFEventTaps Framework v1.3.6a are two Cocoa frameworks for writing assistive applications for persons with disabilities, using Apple's Accessibility and Quartz Event Taps API and Mac OS X. The updated frameworks feature reduce the memory footprint of both frameworks, and also fix a code signing issue for Gatekeeper. UI Browser v2.4.3 ($55 for new users) is a bug-fix update to the "ultimate assistant" for Apple's AppleScript GUI Scripting and Accessibility technologies, and UI Actions v2.2.1 ($35 for new users), offering "universal attachability" to AppleScript on Mac OS X, adding accessibility support in OS X 10.9 Mavericks as well as bug fixes.
