Say “Hello” to iOS App Clips

Learn about how TPass and Bay Area Boba Shops adapt to the Apple newest iOS 14 feature

TPass, the first mobile pick-up service app dedicated for boba shops. We’re on a mission to help our local and independent boba shops thrive. Order ahead, earn rewards, satisfy your cravings, and discover new shops and drinks near you.

We’ve all had an experience like this. Say a user is trying to buy a drink at a boba shop. Typically, they either wait in-line, place orders, and pay with cash, credit cards or mobile payment. Or they either require to download an app or scan QR codes that direct them to a web browser, place orders by navigate through different interface ordering systems, and manually input their credit card information every time.

App Clips Code

But with these fancy blue-circular App Clip Codes, it provides a generic interface for a quick and seamless transition to allow the user can quickly load a tiny part of the TPass app within seconds to pay for the drinks by even skipping the manual credit card entry. We in hopes that App Clips will drive people out of webpages and into the app.

We’re living in a world that requiring us to use apps to interact, and sometimes we have too many apps. App Clips is exactly trying to solve this. You scan and launch a small part of a full app that will be available instantly on-demand when you need it.

With App Clips, users are more likely to place order digitally with a seamless, in-app experience. This allows users to directly interact with the app’s functionality, and to discover the value of the app (like a movie trailer!!) and eventually download the full version.

On the other hand, the App Clips is so small (less than 10MB) and will be automatically removed after a period of inactivity. Users won’t be overhaul apps, and to make more storage space in more important things.

We see App Clips as an innovative, unique product with lots of potential to change the mobile landscape and enhance the user’s experience. We see modern consumer is changing purchase behavior, and they value efficiency, and convenience more than ever. Likewise, we’re eager to see the value App Clips bring to the mobile ordering ecosystem as a whole, and we can’t wait to help you along your boba ordering journey.
