Since there has been no genuine communication on this issue from Spotify att all, what did you expect?

I think the problem is Spotify has no real concurrency at the moment, at least in France i mean, i tried deezer, musicme, qobuz etc... and i just can't leave the spotify desktop client. To be honest their app works fine on my cowon z2 player, what i can't stand is they offer 320kbps to iOS users without even reassure android users about a future similar update.

That's my feeling too.

 

People moan I'm leaving for X and Y but X, Y and Z expect you to use a web browser when not using a mobile. Are you for real? Spotify Desktop is exceptional and specifically why I stick with Spotify.

 

Fingers crossed at some point I'll be able to say the same thing about their Android mobile app too. I recently got a Spotify survey e-mailed to me. I made it very clear how dreadful it is.

 

I'm not aware of any streaming service that has taken the same Desktop vs. Web browser approach in Europe or North America. Sure in theory browser based is better but I just don't find I ever need music at a third party random computer and almost all of my mates have Spotify installed anyway. Those that don't, there's always Grooveshark.

@bradavon i'm afraid i do not have any further update.

This was pretty much meant as a post to share what little information i did have, since it appeared not to be known by most people that a rewrite was in progress.

I did not want this to be another rant trhead, just information.
And i was hoping someone at spotify would see the thread and confirm it so there would be an official statement.

I will update the front post if i get any new information, but i would not hold my breath!

Thanks.

 

I didn't know a rewrite was coming. I don't believe Spotify actually read these forums, except maybe the odd moderator or two. The best channel is e-mailing support.

A complete rewrite must be necessary. 

This application is so bad i don't even want to see the code. 

 

This is a paid service, give us some quality ffs. 

 

Plus i've joined this community 20 min ago and saw people have been complaining for 1 month at least. ONE MONTH. 

How come spotify let people complain for one month on Mobile application issue?? This mobile thing is supposed to be the main concern of a company like spotify.

@ Sheugel: Thanks. Can you post a link please?

Does it sound like a proper upgrade or just another minor one? Any timeframe? Thanks again.
