Droid X2 -- Immediate Force Close on Start Up

Droid X2 -- Immediate Force Close on Start Up

Hi.  I've used Spotify on my iPad for sometime but my friend raves about it on his Android-based device.  I want to switch to that device and, if it works well, go Premium so I can listen to off-line content.  However, after downloading the app from Google Play this morning I've found that it hangs with a white screen, eventually force closing, on every single attempt to use it.  Any idea what might be going on?

 

Thanks,

 

Jared
