Yep, highly annoying as I'm streaming all my music over bluetooth (in the car, at home, on my headphones...). Spotify has made it clear more than once that they are zero committed to WP. I guess that can only change if WP ever picks up significant market share, which with Ballmer leaving Microsoft has just become a bit more likely. I'm not gonna hold my breath though...
Same issues. Hopefully we get some traction on this because paying for something and really liking the product puts me in this awkward position of trying to decide if I should continue. You'd think there would be some kind of response to this thread since it's obviously a problem. If they don't want to support WP then kill the app and tell me to take a hike but don't ignore the issue and let it fester for something I pay for.
Last time I contacted Spotify support they couldn't even tell me whether they are still working on maintaining the WP app. If you have the chance, take a look at Deezer. Although stability for me is the main issue at this point, the stylish UI is impressive and shows what's possible on WP.
Initially I thought the proximity between Finland and Sweden would help spur Sptify's WP development. I had high hopes for Nokia to push Spotify as much as WhatsApp. Well, looks like it's not going to happen.
