Spotify app exits directly after login, on ICS

I have a Nexus S android running ICS.

A couple of days ago the Spotify app started malfunctioning. When I started it, it would log in as expected and display the playlists. However, after a small number of seconds, it exited without any warning whatsoever. I cannot use the app anymore since it exits almost instantly.

 

I have tried to clear the app data and reinstalling the app, it didn't work.

 

(Another problem that I've had quite a while (that I think is unrelated) is that my offline playlists fade from the cache. I have to re-sync my phone every couple of days.)

Re: Spotify app exits directly after login, on ICS

Could this be the infamous too-many-playlists bug?

I tried clearing the app data and reinstalling the Spotify app but somehow my settings survived. I'm at a total loss of what to try next.

This exact problem just started for me today. Galaxy Nexus, silently crashes a second after starting the app. Uninstall & reinstall, restore from backup, didnt fix.

Not the playlists bug. Simply sounds like the 'ICS is not supported' bug/issue/annoyance.

At some point in the future, Spotify might deign to upgrade the app. Until then, lots of people are being upgraded to, or are buying phones with, ICS, and many of them will leave.

Re: Spotify app exits directly after login, on ICS

I got it working on my Galaxy Nexus running ICS.  I'm not sure if it was luck or coincidence, however here are the steps I followed:

 

1. Uninstall Spotify

2. Reboot Phone

3. Reinstall from the Market

4. Check "App Info" to verify there is no data and the app is not running

5. Run the app, it should prompt you to login; it worked for me at this point

Same bug here on a nexus S and a galaxy nexus.

Found that starting spotify in airplaine mode and disconnecting allow me to start the app.

As soon as I connect again the app exits so I can't download my playlists anymore...
