I use my phone and my tablet (both ICS) for listening to music at uni. The proxy server prevents use of the Spotify app in online mode, so it would be good to have the app use the OS proxy settings, particularly if Spotify radio is going to be included in the app at some point. Other apps like Google Music are able to stream music through the proxy, so it seems to be possible.
