Canadian coffee and donut chain Tim Hortons today launched a revamped app that enables customers to order and pay ahead of time with Apple Pay. Customers can also add a credit card or TimCard manually and pay by scanning an in-app barcode.

The app enables customers to choose their preferred Tim Hortons location and pick-up method. Payment is completed within the app, so customers can grab their orders to go at the counter or drive-thru, or dine in at the restaurant.

The minimum reload amount in the Tim Hortons app is set at the default of $10, but can be set at increments of $10, $25, $50, or $100, in both Canadian or U.S. dollars. Tim Horton's app FAQ outlines more details.

Tim Hortons locations will have new "Mobile Pickup" signage displayed at counters to inform customers where to pick up their mobile orders, enabling them to skip the line, according to the blog iPhone in Canada.

The new Tim Hortons app replaces the company's old TimmyMe app with limited TimCard barcode functionality. Tim Hortons says customers can seamlessly transfer their TimmyMe funds for use in the new app.

Restaurants offering the ability to order and pay ahead on a smartphone is hardly a new concept, but it's nice to see Canada's largest quick service chain, with over 3,800 locations across the country, get on board.

The new Tim Hortons app is available now for free on the App Store [Direct Link] for iPhone users in Canada and the United States.

I hated this with Starbucks, they offer incentives to order through the app while you're there instead of Barista then it causes all different confusions..How impatient are we getting as a society that we can't wait few minutes for a cup of coffee...

Do you live in Canada? I've heard the Canadian Tim Horton's is generally better quality.

Apparently US Tim Horton's tried selling a "poutine donut" with cheese curds, gravy and french fries on it...

If this means I don't get stuck in line behind someone ordering for their whole office, great!

Edit: What a terribly designed app. It looks like all it does is place orders. I can't find a way to find locations or anything.
Sadly, you can only find locations when ordering... Looks like you'll still need the existing Timmy Me app for finding locations.

People love to complain about Tim Hortons but that doesn't stop them from going.

I'll pick up a double double there when I need one, and it tastes fine enough for me. At least the coffee isn't straight out of a nuclear reactor like at McDonalds.
