[Mobile] Spotify Lite Version for Mobile Apps

Hello,

 

Spotify is becoming is becoming a "heavy'  app for some old smartphones. So my question is andI don't know if it is allready asked, is there any way possible to let people choose for the full application or choose for a semi application with less functions, but they can still listen to there music.

 

I was thinking about when installing, semi app recommed for old smartphones or full app ... . And let people choose even later in options.

 

By the way, sorry for the bad English ;p.

 

Matthias

Marked as new idea and edited the title to let it differ from a similar idea for the desktop app here.

+1 for this. it's taking a while to lad on my 2 year old ipad mini, so this would probably help. though in my case, it's going to be an iOS install that needs to ho on a diet.

i haven't worked out if it's the player part of the spp that's swelling or additional social aspects of the app that sre growing in size unecessarily.

all things said, a music player shouldn't really need to be 75mb+.

the android install on my htc m8s is about 13mb, by comparision, less than 2 thirds of the install size.

I like this, i have a iPod touch an i can only dl iOS 7.xx and i cant dl spotify om it... I think it sucks big time.. Made å topic bout this, but i was rederected here..

 


I have an idea about making a simpel verson of spotify for older ios.
I have an old ipod touch which i want to dl sporify on, to play all my favorit songs when im at work in my lorry, but i cant, cos i cant dl spotify cos i cant opgrade it to ios 8.xx. Therfor i have been thinking if its possible to make an easy verson of spotify, only get your playlists, and saved song, make them available offline and play them, and to manage your playlists etc you have to go to a pc, mac or iphone with ios 8.xx.

 

Cheers, best regards, Tor Vidar

+ 1 for a lite app, basically the app from 12-18 months ago.

 

Current app is effectively useless on iPhone 4 / iOS 7. One minute to launch the app? I'll rather put some vinyl on or warm up the tubes on grandma's radio. Nags every time for mobile data? You ate all of my el-cheapo-data plan in three hours once when the wifi was glitchy, not going to make that mistake again.

 

Canceled my premium subscription and uninstalled the app. Not going to buy a new €500 phone just to listen to some music.

 

Pardon the bluntness, but this is just silly.
