So I recently decided to be brave and move from my iPhone 4S (have been an iphoner since 1st gen) and moved to the new Samsung Galaxy S3.
All is going great and I am enjoying the device, but, my spotify experience has been completely ruined.
First of all - for some reason, whenever I exit Spotify and open it, lets say after 15-20 minutes, I am completely logged out, and my entire downloaded playlists are DELETED, I mean REMOVED, I mean VANISHED from my phone for no sane reason. This is driving me insane, I am downloading before heading out, want to enjoy my well paid Spotify Premium subscription, but hey, all my downloaded playlists are GONE and i have to stream and milk out my data plan, right.
Second - Why can't you make the app send out song names through bluetooth?! Your iPhone app does this, your iPad app does this, but no, your android app can't do it. It is such a simple implementation that your very fine coders can easily do.
Third - So I stream the songs with my data plan, enjoying my music, and hey I feel like stopping at 7/11 getting myself a drink, great, of course everything is stopped (spotify is still running in the background). I get back to the car, get my stereo back to bluetooth in HOPE that the music will continue from where it was stopped, but nope, nothing, mute, i go into the Spotify app, and what do I find there, a black blank screen with no artwork (but inside the player itself), instead of getting the lovely artwork of my last listened song.
The funny part is, if i use my 4S, everything works perfectly.
So, for now I have cancelled my subscription in HOPE that you will recover from this very soon. It doesn't make sense. I'm lucky I have an iPhone so I can enjoy Spotify, but if it ain't my main phone, Spotify is useless. At home I can listen perfectly fine with the lovely ads you have running, no need to pay $9.99 a month. Spotify is made for the RUN.
Come on guys, fix this nonsesne!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have been using spotify since 2010-09-16 and always been a premium user... But now i'm getting sick of it too.
At first i was paying mostly for the Desktop app which is hopefully great. But for years i've been strugling against the numerous bugs of the Android app...
We just can't accept to be considered anymore as lower premium users. We do have the right to the same mobile experience as the IOS users... It's just no fair ! We pay just as much money as they do and all we got right now is a beta version of the app. And the development rate is just ridiculous.
I heard the the Android development team is very small and they lack quite a lot of people to keep the Android App at the same level as the IOS one.
So i'm now thinking we should unite and make a petition with an ultimatum.
"We do not accept to be treated as lower customers, and we will cancel our premium subscription in X weeks".
What do you think ? i'm quite sure we could spread that petition all over and regroup the numerous Android Spotify users...
