Judging by the some of the outstanding problems highlighted on this forum I'm guessing this issue won't be addressed for months (if at all). The crashing issue on iPhone 3's for example, has been open for over a year with no fix and no acknowledgment from spotify support. I'm surprised that no-one in the media has picked up and reported on any of these issues and the non existent 'customer support.'
Same happening here, iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2 Spotify version 0.5.9.10, core 0.7.1.6114
Can someone from Spotify comment on when this is likely to be fixed?
I got to this thread by clicking on a ' there is a solution to this problem' button that appears at the start of this thread. obviously not, so not sure what that is supposed to mean?
I emailed Spotify and got this completely uncommitted:
"We're aware of an issue with the full results list not showing in iOS searches and it's something we're looking into. Hopefully a fix will be along with the next update we release although we can't promise anything.
Come on Spotify. An otherwise excellent product unnecessarily handicapped here. This isn't exactly going to be an 'oh my god we need to rewrite the entire code base to fix this' bug. It's going to take one dev like an hour or two tops to nail a faulty array pointer or handle a try-catch properly. Seriously, iPhone users are among your only paying customers... Can you seriously afford to give us such bugs when your business model needs us so badly?
(As if anyone from Spotify with any job description other than 'placate the users any way you can but don't bug the devs' is ever going to read this. Yeah right!)
I wish there was something more I could do help... like inflict this pernicious annoying ass little bug on the Spotify CTO ... or better yet one if their venture fund backing CEOs. You watch how fast that would get this **bleep** fixed. But diddums here... he isn't got no beef in this world. Lets all cry for diddums and his fellow spotify users.
P.s Spotify is awesome and kicks all the competition's asses. Just saying. (They got me over the fricking barrel here; kickass product, lame bug :7)
Everyone in this thread needs to like all posts in the thread (as well as any threads like it speaking to the same problem) to maybe give it a little more visibility. I know I'm grasping at straws here.
Tweet them on twitter with @Spotify and complain there too.
Blog about it on your own blog.
The only thing I know to do is to push on every public avenue available to get their attention.
If I were paying $1 per month for the premium service I might be a little more forgiving, hell I would even be more forgiving if they said anything at all here... I'm a pretty forgiving guy. But don't ignore your customers entirely. Why even have the community site if your not going to engage your customers at all. It makes me feel like I'm talking to some governmental agency, like the IRS.
I was having the same problem. I had tried uninstalling and installing with no success. I emailed Spotify and they replied asking me to uninstall, then power down my iphone (4), power up the phone, and reinstall. It worked for me. I had previously uninstalled and reinstalled without restarting the phone. You may want to try it this way.
