Spotify for windows 10 via centennial bridge has only just been released. Thank you for your efforts!. (app version 126.96.36.1995g024fbe68 (windows store version))
Things I've noticed that could use some improvement.
1. Rendering of the app is slow.
-onclick access of buttons, label art album pages, prompts and menu's are relatively, but noticeably slow to respond or close, compared to the native desktop or uwp apps.
- scolling menu's is noticeably slower and seems to lag half to one second slower that the input.
-response to scrolling on windows 10 on a touchscreen device such as a surface device is showing noticeable slow scrolling response to touch of 1 second or more.
2. app is very desktopcentric. It is more difficult to use as a user interface on a windows touchscreen device due to the smaller fonts, buttons and overall more crowded layout, which leads to prone accidental unwanted button presses and a poor user experience.
3. Snapping the app is a compromised experience. Only in desktop mode is the app snappable and then apparently limited to a fixed 80/20% ratio. Snapping in tablet mode is not enabled. Would be better if this was optimized to fit basic windows functionalities.
4. App by default opens automatically in the background at launch of windows. This is an annoying feature and interfereing with opening of other apps. I wish this feature was off by default
5. Would be nice if the app had more live tile functionality. Such as:
-showing album art on the live tiles
-supporting chaseable tiles for improved discoverability of songs in the app
-Be able to pin favorite songs, albums or stations as live tiles (in all available tile sizes) for easier searchability and accesibility in the app.
- Support for light and dark mode and windows accent color for the app.
- support transparency of the app live tile.
-support notifications, for example when a download is complete or when a new and upcoming favorited album or song is available on te platform.
6. improved personalization options of the app. Currently is it limited to being able to turn on/off hardwareacceleration and the right sidebar only. But the left sidebar menu also takes up screen real estate and I don't always use it. I would like to collapse it too in favor of more space and an unobstructed view of more space to the artist, album or station listings. The dashboard UI is alrady quite feature filled and could use some "breathing room".
7. support for UWP. Maybe somewhere in the future, but native support would be a nice experience on windows 10.
