Spotify Android App is crashes unexpectedly all the time?

I am currently a Spotify Premium member and I use Spotify on Android. 

 

Whenever my app downloads enough songs, the app will crash. This crash will terminate spotify within 3 seconds since its launch and I can't do anything except uninstall and reinstall the app back. 

 

I did a logcat and this is what I am seeing:

I contacted customer support and was told that ICS was not supported. 

 

The last android update was on November 14th (which is about 4 months ago). I hope the upcoming version will be able to fix this bug.

Re: Spotify Android App is crashes unexpectedly all the time?

I had the same problem, the application crashed after a couple of seconds when launched. I'm also running on ICS, but if was working fine for me at ICS since i updated my Nexus S last fall. 

 

Finally i managed to work again, what i did is mount the usb filesystem and then remove the folder com.spotify.mobile.android.ui that is located in the "Android/data/" folder.  

 

i hope this will solve your crash too.

Check these two topics for more info, many people are having the same problem; apparently a major update for the Android app is in the works, but no release date yet, so add your voice to the others, perhaps it will help:

 

Last client update was november 2011
