Starbucks goes mobile for summer

To celebrate summer, Starbucks is hosting a scavenger hunt, and it’s not your average cup of Joe.

The game, called Starbucks Summer Pursuit, is described by the company as a “fun text messaging trivia game.” Each week, Starbucks will text participants three summer-themed clues, to which they can respond to text or picture messaging.

The photo part, Starbucks says, is what “the techies call…intelligent image recognition.”

If you rack up enough answers, you have a chance to play the Ultimate Scavenger Hunt in New York City and compete for a trip to Costa Rica.
