Hey, I have the same problem. I did some testing and I found out that it crashes everytime I add a song to one of my offline playlists. It only happens rarely when adding songs to unsynced playlist. I'm running MiUi (custom rom based on Gingerbread 2.3.7) on a Desire S. My internal memory is over 60% free and my SD is over 20% free. I was connected through my home's broadband so I'm sure its not a memory or bandwidth problem. Does anyone have the same symptoms or does it crash regardless if the playlist is offline synced or not? Also, android's built-in crash thingy (E.g the system dialog that tells you the Application has stopped responding) doesn't see the crash, the App just "exits". Other than this problem, the App runs perfectly fine.
This post is quite helpful, but I don't think it should be marked as a solution!

I also experience the issue with adding or starring songs. What does that mean for my experience? Every time I discover a new song I love, it stops playing. When I like something, I star it, or add it to a playlist. It's the worst possible time for the app to crash.
I've been a paying premium customer since I was awarded early access via a Klout perk, and I evangelized Spotify to everyone in my life and social media circles. I still would too, glitches and all, if I wasn't outright ignored by them. I tried to report the issues I was having months ago, which received an auto response that my device was not supported (which is interesting, considering a visit to their site on my phone says it is - I have an EVO). I thought I'd try tweeting them, but they just ignore everything.
I'm sitting tight waiting on this update. If it fixes things, I'm truly ecstatic to continue paying. If it doesn't, I don't know how I can justify continuing to pay to be ignored when I'm paying for a broken service. I'm done with blind faith.

same boat as you.
totally changed my life from piracy to legitimacy. however, if the app continues to provide an underwheling and functionally defiiant experience, then I'm done. i can honestly say I'm finding more issues with the mobile app as time goes on. today, for example, it just crashes when i play a particular band. i've listened to spotify on mobile for at least 6 hours today, and only with this one band does it crash (it only appears to crash on a particular album).

Similar problem with an HTC Incredible running 2.3.4.
When I add a song to a playlist or star it, I can then play a song for a minute or two and then Spotify crashes. It's a new problem and very annoying!
I have tried reinstalling a few times to no avail.

An crash shortly after adding a song to a playlist or starring something is solved by the preview app: http://www.spotify.com/download/previews/
