Windows 8

Hey all,

 

Do you think we'll see a beta app for Spotify on the Windows 8 Consumer Preview?

I'm running Windows 8 Consumer Preview and it works fine... The only difference I have noticed it duplicated the Windows Media Player Playlist if you had it on there... other then that... it works great.

Re: Windows 8

Given that we've been asking for an iPad app since the iPad was released in 2009, and we've still not got one... I wouldn't expect a metro app anytime soon, or any plans soon either.

 

Also I thought metro apps were based in HTML and JavaScript... so it's unlikely that we'll ever get a metro app - since Spotify has previously said (in response to a web app) that they believe they can produce a better quality experience with proper desktop apps.

 

Maybe they'll surprise us... but I don't think it'll be a priority since the normal desktop app will work fine in Windows 8.

Re: Windows 8

But what about those that will be using the ARM processor?

 

Surely they will have to cater for that?

First off:metro apps can be

  • C++ (most used programmer language)
  • BASIC (most used windows programming language)
  • JavaScript an HTML (web language)

Agree, we need a metro version. It could show new releases on the startpage tile etc. They could port the Windows Phone player over to Windows 8.
