I'm JVGO, and spotify sucks. How long is it going to take your developers to solve the offline problems we android tablet users are facing. Why are you snubbing us spotify, why? You release iOS updates like every other week but neglect android users entirely. If this issue with spotify not always going offline each time we try to sync our playlist offline doesn't get fixed, I am going to start a petition asking all android users unsuscribe from your premium service. Its like throwing 10 bucks into the air and getting nothing in return, no"we are working on it," or "this is the problem at the moment." You just snub us. and i am sick and tired of it. you have a week to release an update for android ICS 4.0.4 or else.

I cant speak for spotify, but I can take an educated guess as to why the Android Updates take longer then the IOS Updates.
Android runs Windows so there for the spotify applet that runs on an android device will be codded in ASSEMBLY code or C ++ this takes time but not much space on a memory card. The Update that will run on a Android device needs to codded correctly, and have the capability to intergrate itself in to the correct application. Since ASSEMBLY is a memory based math and logic codding system, it takes a long time to build up the code and assemble it into a .exe file
IOS takes far less time because the codding is linux based, and linux is inherintly much more simple in desigen then windows.
