I'm a spotify user for years now.
I use the app everyday and created 1000 playlists. Really.
But now, the app is constantly slow and crashing. Why? Because Spotify changed a rule with its black version: before on playlist in your mobile app, there was no image of the playlist. Now it tries to load tons of images which slow the app a lot!
You could make the app so much faster with a simple setting option: use spotify without images!
I use an iPhone 4S and this is a big issue for me and I'm sure also for thousand of users.
As a Product Manager myself, I did the same in our app and we are now engaging more people in countries with slow brandwitch & with people with old devices.
It is a really simple solution and a pretty fast one to implement!
I'm sure if an Analytic manager at Spotify really check the stats of users with old phones that have a lot of playlists or users in countries with low brandwitch, he will see that the app has a lower use and that it decreased just after the black version.
Keep up the good work and continue to improve!
