Yesterday: my Samsung Galaxy SII used Spotify just fine. I was chillaxing out in the sun, revising for my exam whilst listening to even more chilaxing tunes. You know, the whole exam revising ordeal.
Today: whilst online on my home network (wireless) I open Spotify to synch some new chillaxing tunes. I open Spotify on my computer and see my phone in the devices list. Cool. It automatically starts synching the tunes as soon as it's connected. And stays there. For. A. Very. Long. Time. Stuck at 1 of 12 songs synched. I go to the shop and I'm gone for half an hour. When I'm back I look at my phone, and it's still at 1 of 12 songs synched. What the actual f***?
I try using Spotify on the phone, but there's no response. It's jammed. Okay, so I click my fancy "Home" button on the phone and go back to my desktop and try opening Spotify again. Lo and behold:
It instantly shuts down, it doesn't even log in. Okay, so I try clearing memory cache and try again. Same result. I uninstall Spotify, restart the phone and reinstall Spotify. Same result.
Now: after 1,5 hours of scouring the Internetz I finally find this "apparent" solution. There's only one problem: this is what I've been doing from the beginning. I went online with my phone, tapped my way over to http://www.spotify.com/download/previews/. It instantly asks me if I want to install Spotify. Clickes yes, and it brings me back to Google Play's useless app which doesn't work.
I'm not entirely lost behind a shed computer wise, so a detailed response would be nice.
Bonus info: my phone (again: Galaxy SII) is fully updated and running nothing except Spotify at the time of the crashes.
If I don't manage to fix this by the end of the day, I'm cancelling and moving over to Wimp, simply because they're better.
