My Question or Issue

Since the latest update, they have revised the way the left sidebar works, and now it wastes a lot of real estate, and either the playlist panel is too short vertically, it is too small (horizontally) or the album art is too small (both ways).


This is a problem because over the 4 or 5 years I've used Spotify, I've obsessively created playlists for a bunch of genres and occasions, and not being able to find them because of space issues is annoying as **bleep**, not to mention silly considering I've got a 3 monitor array for work. I also like to look at album art because it gives you a quick reference of what/when/who about the music you're listening to.


The solution would be very simple if they used a more Winamp-like way to move panels, but alas. So the solution goes: let me decide on the height of the album art, and the width of the sidebar. So simple! Please update this so that we can continue to happily give you our friggin money for a good service.

Honestly, I would. But it seems like Spotify does the best Chief Wiggum's Invisible Typewriter impression when it comes to user feedback.


Thanks anyway.
