OK, so I used Apple Music for a long time but the rest of my family were all on Spotify so a few days back I took the plunge. Itunes is an incredibly poor piece of software but I am gobsmacked at the Spotify UI and the way it 'operates'...
I've done a bit of reading and this is a recent change from Spotify -
You can't just click on an artist and play all the songs/albums you have for them
You have to 'follow' an artist and then search through what spotify wants you to see about them
Only complete albums show in the albums option, so if - like me - you look at an album and download only your favourite tracks, you don't see that 'album' in your album view
The solution to the above is your songs from partially download albums only appear in the 'songs' option which can be thousands of songs long!?!
Did spotify employ a team of low IQ baboons who came up with this cracking idea?
Its not great at all folks, not great at all...
I'm guessing I will stick with this and see if Spotify see sense and put some actual functionality back into the app. Fingers crossed and all that.
