Make Spotify app respect the iOS mute switch!!!

This is actually important... When I have my phone switched to "mute," I expect the apps to comply. Spotify does not, leading to some very embarrassing, loud interruptions, usually at inopportune moments because I THOUGHT I had muted my phone.<br><br>Please fix this!! Thank you,<br><br>Mattynabib

Gotta respectfully disagree with this one. It's so much better the way it is without having to mute any other apps (Including phone, messages, tweets etc.) than having to do all of those individually whenever I just want to listen to music. I recommend just pulling up the iOS 7 control panel And turning the volume all the way down on your phone, even if it is muted.

I agree with ohheyslim, the mute switch is intended to mute the ringer only, which includes ringtones, notifications etc. if you've noticed games often still play music even while muted, although well-coded apps turn the music off only and leave sound effects playing
