If you’ve ever been (or live) in Canada I'm sure you have come to the realization that we LOVE coffee, mainly Tim Hortons, and we like it a lot! So when Tim Hortons brought their famous TimmyME application to the BlackBerry Z10 I’m sure there was a collective sigh of relief from Canadians. The application has a ton of features available, some are simple like contacting Tim Hortons. While other features a really useful, like the ability to find a location or take an order. Continue reading to get the 101 on the new fully redesigned TimmyME app for the BlackBerry Z10.

Now, I fully understand that having a coffee application on the BlackBerry Z10 is not a life or death thing, but when it’s a Tim Hortons coffee application I’m all over it. The application has many features that are designed to make ordering coffee (and other items) easy. From the home screen of TimmyME for the BlackBerry Z10 you are presented with a grid of 6 menu items. The menu items on the home screen are, find a restaurant, Tim Card balance checker, connect with Tims, contact us, nutrition, and the famous TimmyME order notepad. On the home screen you are also able to tap on the settings icon, this will allow you to change location information and your measurement settings. Continue reading to get a breakdown of all the options found on the home screen of TimmyME for the BlackBerry Z10.

Application options

Find a Restaurant

The find a restaurant option is actually pretty cool and very responsive. Once you click on the find a restaurant option the app will automatically start scanning your location for the closest Tim Hortons restaurant. Once the app has found the locations you can click on the results. If you click on one of the results you will be able to see restaurant specifics, like if they have a drive through or if they carry Tim Cards. Once clicked on a specific location you can also get directions to that restaurant, or call them directly from your BlackBerry smartphone.

Tim Card Balance Check

If you’ve ever been to a Tim Hortons coffee shop, then you may have seen their customer card, aptly named the Tim Card. The Tim Card allows you to put money on their card and use it to buy your coffee from their locations. Well, within the TimmyME application you can input your Tim Card and check the balance before buying that large double double coffee. A handy feature when you’re on the go and don’t feel like carrying change in your pockets.

Connect With Tims

This section of the application is pretty simple. The connect with Tims menu allows you to connect to Tim Hortons through various social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Make sure you follow Tim Hortons to get updates on their specials including Roll Up The Rim To Win! and more.

Contact Us

These days, being able to contact a company at any minute is what keeps a company at the forefront of top notch customer service. The TimmyME application allows you to contact the Tim Hortons company directly to report feedback (positive or negative) about the brand, or a restaurant location you’ve visited.

Nutrition

If you’re one of those individuals that like to know the nutritional value of the food you’re eating, then you will most likely find this option within the TimmyME application quite useful. The nutrition page allows you to look up the nutritional value of all the products offered at Tim Hortons locations. From coffee to donuts, you’ll know the exact content of what you are about to eat.

Order Notepad

If you’ve ever gone to get coffee and you’re around other people, I’m sure you’ve experienced the surge in others who magically want coffee at the same time. When the surge happens and people make their orders as complicated as possible, be prepared with the order notepad found in the TimmyME application. Within the application you can use the built in notepad to take orders. The notepad will not only make your life easy, it will also ensure that everyone gets what they ordered.

 

The TimmyME application features everything that we’ve come to expect from the top tier applications on the new BlackBerry 10 platform. TimmyME for the BlackBerry Z10 features the ability to peak and flow throughout the application. Not only is the app visually appealing, it is actually really useful. Even if you don’t live in an area that have Tim Hortons coffee shops, you can use the TimmyMe app to take orders for all your coffee loving friends.

The TimmyMe application for the BlackBerry Z10 can be download for free from the BlackBerry World storefront.

Bla1ze just about had me banned for being Canadian and not knowing that this was on BBW weeks before I notices it.

True story...

I got my eyes on you, mister. cheeky

That is one heck of a long review for a coffee app. No doubt Canadian coffee lovers will be happy for it.

Lol, that's exactly what I thought when I wrote it. Also, I had a medium double double at my side.

When the app includes nfc payments then I'll be excited

With that comment, I must call your Canadian credentials into question, sir!

I've found the map to be a little finnicky. It's accurate in terms of address, but my location doesn't come up accurately and the pins seem to be improperly placed or shifted.

pmccartney

There are Tim Hortons restaurants in the USA too.

Excellent App!

Zach Gilbert

Yep, they are expanding into the US market. And as they said in Pinky and the Brain, they "Try to take over the World". Okay, maybe not the world, but they are expanding fast.

But the app doesn't support actually using the barcode from the Tim's Card, does it? So. what's the point?

Zach Gilbert

No it doesn't. The Tim Cards are magnetic strip cards. This allows you to check the balance without calling their 1-800. It's come in handy for myself.

Hilarious that I live in the UK but I can actually download this app lololol. Handy app to have as I spend a lot of time in Canada...born British but proud to be a Canadian too.

Shame there's no timmys here :-(

Was the second app I DL'd upon scoopin my Zed10. I never use it. Just had to have it. I did email them about the NFC tieing into the Tim Card for payments though. I think that would REALLY kick NFC use into high gear with thousands of people seeing that used to pay for their morning kick start (and midmorning/mid day, evening and night perk -pun intended)
Fill out the timmies feedback/contact us page and let them know, NFC would REALLY be a great app update http://www.timhortons.com/ca/en/contact-nature.html

Hope they will include barcode or NFC payment in their next update

Wasn't there supposed to be BIG news today?

There is one Timmies in Dubai if I'm not mistaken.

One thing that bothered me with the old TimmyME app was the "Order notepad" and I see things haven't changed. If you could select items from a menu to add to the order list, this app would be great. (As I sit here drinking my Starbucks).

Anyway, time to turn up the heat on Canadian Tire because their OS6 app was really quite good.

So where on my Z10 does the coffee pour out from after I order one? ; )

I'm not happy with this app at all, the find a tims locator does not work at all. I've downloaded it a few times now, checked the gps settings but to no avail my locater fails to work. I'm with Telus in Mississauga.

i cannot add money to my cards, nor can i pay with my phone. kind of a weak app but nice effort

WTangoFoxtrot

This app pales in comparison to the competition. Also if timmies wanted to put some effort into it instead of the same thing as old BlackBerry OS then they might have supported NFC payments with a time card off the device or something..

This app would have come in handy in Dubai. Had to find them myself, there's at least 3, Marina, Dubai Mall and Business Center.

This was one of the first apps installed after I got my phone. Use it all the time. Can there really be a better more important app? I think not.

Without NFC support the app is useless to me

This app has potential. Definitely needs some work. Nfc or improved map functionality

When there is a Starbucks app that supports payment via my loyalty card and helps me get free stuff, great. I downloaded this but never used the old one. Not once.

This app is useful when I am in a drive thru and have a panic attack that I don't have enough money on my Tim card...makes checking a breeze. Now, if it allowed me to reload, that would be awesome.

The restaurant locator doesn't work for me.
Do you simply push find a restaurant?.... . or am I missing something.
The circle spins in the center of my screen then stops. I'm left with nothing.

Find a restaurant doesn't work for me. It just leave me with a blank screen.

Yes, you love coffee, but Tim Hortons' is really, really bad! I'm talking about the espresso, at least.
Starbucks' espresso is better, at least :)

PS: I'm Italian but I am often in Canada
