Landscape on the iPhone at all would be nice too!

Spotify on the iPhone doesn't have landscape mode at all? Wow, I guess I should stop complaining. 🙂

It gets even worse in list views, less than half of screen is available for actual items — two rows, which makes scrolling a tedious jobIMG_12072011_160023.png.
