Hey guys, I don't know if this will apply to anyone else but I had the following problem: after upgrading my Galaxy S2 to ICS, Spotify would crash immediately after logging in and going to online mode. I tried reinstalling it multiple times but that didn't fix it. What did fix it though, was pressing the settings button in the login screen and choosing "Full Reset of Spotify". Apparently this cleared all old data and cached stuff from previous use and the app has been working fine after this. Just thought I'd share this since it might help someone else.

Spotify don't support ICS, and hilariously don't actually have plans to do so.

 

Further they provide Customer Service that makes Basil Fawlty seem like the most welcoming and efficient bloke in the world. 

 

Sigh, I do love Spotify really but they seem to be trying very, very hard to make me change my opinion.

This is completely untrue. While I share your pain, I don't know where you've seen that Spotify have no plans for ICS. A Spotify rep on this board stated yesterday that there is a new Android app in development and this fact was also tweeted by the Spotify France account a couple of weeks back. What they have no plans for is telling us when it might drop

Really? THat must have changed recently then as oyur topic was "Under Consideration" before I went on holiday, and only last week on one of the threads here the rep/community leader blokey said he couldn't confirm ICS support.

 

Glad if it has been changed, but still utterly disgusted with Spotify over all this.

 

And I am certain even if a new app debuts which is compatible with ICS it will still be missing major functionality in the IOS/WP7 apps. Harumpf!

Hi, I am a premium user and I am serious problems login in on my mobil device. This has been going on for a very log time time. All I get is and invalid user/password combination. I have reset my password on facebook a number of times without any success. I using a Google Nexus One phone and I have just double checked on your webpage and its listed as a supported device. So could there be something that I am missing?

Although the rep mentioned that it's in development it is true that on the Ideas board this is marked only as 'Under Consideration' at the moment, which is a little hilarious. Either it's planned or it isn't. This isn't something that needs to be considered.

The ICS app is in development.

 

There is no specific development for Honeycomb (although it's likely that any ICS-compatible app will work on 3.x too).

 

That's the reason given for it still being Under Consideration rather than Planned

Lots of stories in the online Techpress. Cnet crave, Phandroid have both run stories about the rubbish Android app that have appeared in my RSS feed.

 

C'mon Spotify, time is of the essence!
