So many problems with Spotify update

I have noticed a lot of problems with the spotify update. As someone who pays for my service, I am extremely dissappointed that my services seem to have been downgraded. Here are the list of problems I am having so far:

 

- Unable to star entire albums anymore

- Does not shuffle songs from different albums anymore from the same artist, keeps picking songs from the same album

- Automatically starts at startup of the computer, even though I have selected through my preferences that it should not multiple times

- Linked to my facebook account, but is no longer showing me the feed of what my friends play

- Ugly itunes like layout, difficult to navigate in comparison to previous layout, contrast of dark color and white is hurting my eyes 

 

Is there a way to downgrade to the version of Spotify I had before? Are any of these problems going to be fixed?

Agreed.  The new version is so dumbed down & takes so many more clicks to do anything.  The favorite people section is missing, there is less information on each artists page so it's harder to find new music.  PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK!

Re: So many problems with Spotify update

my main gripe is def the new visual layout/color scheme.

 

it feels like the worst of itunes.  the 1st thing i did was go to the prefs to see if i could at least reverse the colors like in adobe stuff. nope.

Hey guys :) 

 

Anyone running Mac OS X 10.5 or below can not use the most recent version of the client, since Mac OS X 10.5 is no longer being supported by Spotify. The reason for this is the new client uses features which are not possible on 10.5.

 

Have a read at my post here for a few more details and a link to an old client which might work for you.

Re: So many problems with Spotify update

Thanks. That has worked. Does this mean that I may lose Spotify at sometime in the future?
