Hey folks,

We wanted to post an update as a lot of you have added your votes to this idea. 

We’re always working on improving the Spotify experience across platforms, but we’re afraid we don’t have any further information to share at the moment.

We typically don't announce integrations with third parties in advance. The best place to keep an eye on is on the Spotify Newsroom blog for updates about any partnerships.


Thanks for continuing to share your ideas!

@dschidi no, apple didnt remove that app in the First place. Spotify told the guy (coder of that app) to remove it. And now it’s back up for whatever reason. Apple (probably) had no part in this. 


Wonder on what grounds they could get it removed anyway. "API access using an unwanted tool by legitimate, paying customers"!?

The Apollo app is no longer available. Spotify pulled the plug on that one very quickly. Well done (cough cough) well done.

Is no longer available yet..


just for 1h. 

Who downloaded it? 


Apollo working so good! I got it and hope many others did too.


I used to think Spotify was a really cool and user-focussed company, but their behaviour over this is absolutely disgraceful. I’ll keep my account for now due to having Apollo, but my opinion of Spotify is now rock bottom, and I’ll switch to another service once something better comes along, which it will.

I don't have the ipa file and I'm not Apollo's proprietor. I'm not the developer who put apollo online.

I only signaled that apollo was available.


I'm sorry


Do not send more mp sorry.

Wonder on what grounds they could get it removed anyway. "API access using an unwanted tool by legitimate, paying customers"!?

Originally the developer said, on Twitter, that Spotify pulled him up for something like (I can't remember the exact words) "using the Spotify API on unauthorised hardware which was against the API licence terms".  


Glad I was able to snag Apollo while it was on the App Store. This is exactly the functionality I was hoping Spotify would deliver. It is a shame they are unwilling to do so.


Get this done guys, seriously.

guys maybe there's a way to keep getting Apollo.


soon (25-26 September) I will give you further information by replying to this topic.




If it interests you, put it like this I understand and proceed with the guide (I don't know if it works but it seems to be fine)
