Tim Hortons app lets you pay for your coffee

Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons has just released the official TimmyMe app that lets you pay for your coffee with your Windows Phone. Similar to how the official Starbucks app in the U.S. works for iOS and Android, TimmyMe allows you to store your Tim Hortons gift cards on the phone to pay for coffee and snacks. When you're ready to pay, a barcode displays on your Windows Phone and your barista can scan the code for payment.

The app is built as a universal app so it will work on both Windows as well as Windows Phone.

In addition to being able to pay using your phone, TimmyMe also allows you top off and reload gift cards using the app. There is even an auto-reload feature once your balance falls below a certain threshold.

And if you don't know where your nearest Tim Hortons location is, the app will also display a map with location information for those who are in need of a caffeine fix.

You can download the app in the Canadian Windows Phone store or by scanning in the QR code below.
