    Bike Baron is a an extreme biking game where the objective is to navigate through dangerous terrain and deadly obstacles. Our sister site TouchArcade has a review of the gameplay:
    Though the game originally debuted in 2011, it has been updated several times, adding a slew of new features like additional levels and level editing tools. Bike Baron can be downloaded for free through the Starbucks app, which began offering mobile downloads back in April.

    Starbucks is an iPhone app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    And in other news, Starbucks just partnered with Google to offer free access to Google Music All Access service across the US.
    Great

    How do you actually get this within the Starbucks app?

    After some research, it turns out you have to be connected to Starbucks' Wi-Fi to download. So you can only get it in-store x.x

    I usually end up getting a message within the Starbucks app and the download link is there. I never connect to the starbucks wifi and I get one of these free download things every week, either a song or an app.

    Not so. If you go into your Starbucks app then go to messages, the link to download is there. It will launch app store and redeem. This can be done from any network connection including 4G if the size is not over limit.

    You don't need to have an account, but the updates don't always come at the same time for everyone.

    Bought the game a while ago and it's still one of my favorite iOS games. It was well worth the $1, and at $0 it should be a no-brainer.
