Yesterday I updated Spotify on my Android 2.3.4 Motorola Defy+. I had downloaded around 20GB of music to my mobile. This was annoying as hell because Spotify would stop synching sometimes and I had to restart it many times. So today I listened to my offline playlists one my way to work. Everything was fine. But when I connected to the WiFi and disabled Spotify's Offline Mode to synch recently added music I had to find out Spotify had just deleted around 20GB of music from my mobile! (The app stated I had to go online in 20 days to prevent losing my music.)
Do you know how long downloading 20GB of data takes, when the WiFi is used by many people?
I thought several times about quitting my Spotify Premium subscription, but I think this **bleep** just ruined the whole experience for me. If there's no option to listen to your music offline on your mobile without the risk of complete data loss or buggy synching, I don't have any use for Spotify. Because if I have to get my music anyway somewhere else so I can use it on my phone, I can simply stick to buying/downloading it. That's definitely more expensive and I would need to change my listening habits, but I won't pay for a service, that actually NEVER cared for my messages about buggy software and can't seem to provide more stable software.
