When the app eventually syncs, it plays OK 80% of the time. The otgher 20% it just hangs.
The posts you have linked to are more to do with the app refusing to open over a certain no of playlists. This is not my case. The App opens fine. I just have to sync 1 playlist at a time when using the Desktop Client. If I go through and manually select the playlists on the app on the phone it will add them to the queue and sync them (albeit slower than paint drying) It eventually took me 3 days to sync around 200 playlists
"but hopefully we'll be able to get it sorted in the next Android release. Stay tuned."
Really? Really? Sorry to sound a little sarcastic there, but do i need to link to these posts?
you shouldn't get Spotify on your phone until they fix the nasty bug with the app. The app crashes all the time, it is impossible to listen to a full song! I heard this problem is on all devices on Android and iOS!
As in, we're hoping it just starts to work? You know that if you want it to work you have to *make* it work, right? No updates for 4 months would make the user-base assume you really think it might just happen on its own...
Firstly I think this problem.is.targetting your paying user base and not putting paying customers first. Secondly, people are more than fed up with wishy washy answers about updates. My guess is that there no updates planned otherwise dates and specifics would be given.
One lesson learned paypal is when you provide bad customer service and ignore your paying communities requests websites like paypalsucks.com will start to rise up.
Solution: give a date for the update with current status. This would show good faith. Anything short of that will breed more distrust here.
