A week on the road with Spotify - aggrevation :(

A week on the road with Spotify - aggrevation :(

Oh Spotify, why do you hate your customers so much?


Before I left on my trip, I made sure I synced all the playlists I loved, for offline playback. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Xoom, so both devices that Spotify claims are unsupported, since their developers are stuck in 2009. 


Day 1: Got on the plane, app crashed, all offline playlists are gone. At my hotel, I resynced them

Day 2: On plane, offline playlists are there, but can't play more than 3 songs at a time

Day 3: On plane, offline playlists gone again. This time, I didn't fall for it, and connected to inflight Wi-Fi to sync some songs. 

Day 4: On plane again, offline playlists are there, but now the app crashes after just one song plays

Day 5, 6,7: Playing music off RDIO, which doesn't suck, has a tablet version and lets me listen to music instead of jet engines. 


Thanks Spotify for making the decision so easy!


It has become obvious that your Android app is dead - no developer in the market ignore their app this badly. It isn't like little things don't work - your app hasn't been updated in four months, and "does not support" anything beyond the oldest devices.

Kudos to you for actually trying and trying to get support like all of us here. I too am cancelling my subs today for Rdio. See ya on the other side!

I synced my playlist for driving cross country and it only synced one list after saying it had done all of them.  Currently at a hotel on the way back.  Made sure to sync the playlists last night so I would have music in the "dead" areas....Every time I tried to open the app it crashed my phone and I had to do a battery pull to get the phone to reboot.  I'm driving 11 hours tomorrow with only 3 CD's now.  How is this worth it?  My iPod is dead and the cord is somewhere in the piles of boxes in my car.  So much for my music!  Thanks----I'm over Spotify after this week!
