"And also bear in mind that app releases don't work on the principle that we release a new version every time a single change is made."

 

I'm sorry Richard, but this is not what Rorey has said, which is that there will be frequent releases with small bug fixes but that new features would take longer. So what is it? Are we back to New releases every 6 months again?

 

And don't try calling this a new feature, it is not. It was removed in April and has still not reappeared.

I meant to make a more general point as to why we can't develop things and push them out in a single afternoon, which seems to be the impression sometimes.

 

And as ever, the Android team are working as hard as they can to get things done as quickly as they can. Any harder and they'd probably collapse.

 

Replace 'highly requested feature' with 'function in the old client that the team didn't have time to code into the new build of the app but are working hard to put back whilst also fixing new bugs as they are reported alongside developing new things' if you like.

I appreciate that the Android team is working hard, but what is frustrating is that although the last two releases of the Android app have been tagged as having lots of bug fixes, these all seem to be bugs that have only been reported by your internal QA because I can't find a single instance of a bug reported here in the forum (since the preview release in April) as being fixed. And since the quality of your release notes are so poor we don't even know what internally reported bugs have been fixed anyway. Why are the internally reported bugs being given a higher priority than the bugs reported here in the forum, and if they aren't then why does it appear that way? You would get fewer complaints and maybe some more sympathy if we could at least see one of the high profile bugs that were reported in the preview release in April getting fixed!

I'm just the messenger, Steve. I don't get to tell developers what to work on. 


All the feedback gets passed on though, apologies if it doesn't always appear that way.

 

Anyway, to bring the thread back on topic - we hear you guys! Hang in there.

You've had more than 200 afternoons in which to fix this, how many do you need? Just saying....

This isn't a bug fix and something that needs to be fixed with a variety of things...its a CRITICAL update that needs to be restored.  Not a wish list, but a critical must have.  Some cell phones have 8 gbs.  But 32 or 64 gig cards.  Unacceptable.

 

There's things I want: Like turning off the default to the edited version of an album when you search by artist.  

You can only find the explicit version if you search album.  It'd be nice to reduce the number of repititions of albums and clean up searches by just having a feature: Default Listing - Edited, Explicit, Both.  Search cleaned up dramatically.  Songs you want much faster.  Simple.

 

But I digress.  That's a want...

 

Storage on my storage card is a necessity.

Thanks for all the advice. I installed the old verion and set up the proper path for my card. I checked this by syncing a large playlist and logging on to the storage section of the android task manager. I was happy to see my usb storage space stay the same and my sd card decrease! Yay!! 

I then went onto the Google store and updated spotify. Went to check my playlists and downloaded another large one, just to test the system. Bad news, it's back to downloading on the phone's internal memory. What did I do wrong?

You got Spotify and thought they cared.

Things like the widget has zero function on my screen. (Galaxy Note 2 Jellybean). Some real basics.
The storage thing is not like getting a cup holder or GPS in your new car. Its like seeing a car on the lot with 4 wheels and buying it. They roll up with 3 wheels on the car and say here's your car. Thanks Spotify. I was on the beta on the PC. one of the first in the US. I've convinced more than a hundred friends and coworkers over these years to buy it. I will reverse path soon.
