Hi there Spotify.
I'm a developer myself doing Windows Phone apps for quite some time. Now, it has been known that a Windows Phone 7.5 Spotify app is available, but not for Windows Phone 8.0.
This doesn't even make sense. Windows Phone 8 is FULLY backwards compatible with 7.5. So why did you deliberately pull it from the marketplace? It would have been running perfectly, while you could upgrade it internally to 8.0. That's what everybody else are doing.
Imagine if Microsoft pulled Office 2010 support for Windows 8, while Office 2013 was under construction. How would that make you feel as a consumer, knowing that Office 2010 would be able to run on Windows 8 just fine?
That's what you're doing now. And it simply doesn't make sense. There are so many people out there needing Spotify on their new Windows Phone 8 devices. Don't leave them hanging! Spend the 5 minutes (and yes, it takes 5 minutes) to upload your Windows Phone 7.5 app and make it available for Windows Phone 8 users WHILE working on a specific Windows Phone 8 version.
Anything else wouldn't make sense at all. I am very frustrated about this. I can't even begin to imagine what you've been thinking. This is not at all a rant. I just seek some form of explanation. Why should we wait for Q1 2013? How come it even takes so long?
