[Mobile][Browse] Recently Played unavailable without network connectivity

One of the main reasons that I am a Premium subscriber is to listen to music on planes, as I travel a lot for work.

 

The section that I used the most in Spotify was "Recently Played", as I usually shuffle through a few albums and playlists.

 

In the new version of Spotify, the "Recently Played" section was moved from a vertical list, to a horizontal list in the Home Screen (this is bad, I want to see a vertical list, but not the end of the world).

 

Now, I am in the plane, with no network connectivity - I cannot access the "Home" screen as I have the message "No internet connection.  Go online and try again."  This is easily reproducable by enabling airplane mode on an iPhone.

 

Trust me, I rarely offer feedback, but this is infurating - you've added friction in my user experience.

 

Two things:

1) Horizontal lists are bad when I want to consult over 5 items.  Bring back the vertical list for Recently Played, as I usually play music from many playlists/albums

2) Allow me to view Recently Played with no network connectivity

 

This has been a bad change for my user experience and I do hope that I will be able to view my Recently Played as a vertical list in the near future.
