Why there isn't look screen controls ? This shouldn't be difficult to implement, like any other music app !
I totally agree.
I also think that there should be track control options in the notification bar.
I've had an idea.
Download WidgetLocker from the play store. This replaces the default lockscreen. You do not need to have root to use it and from it, you can add the spotify widget to the lockscreen.
