My Question or Issue

I just decided to switch my primary device to a new iPad Pro rather than laptop setup and I am sorely disappointed that there are some basic functions that seem to be missing on Spotify on iPad:


-can’t reorder playlists’ “custom order” (filter options aren’t good enough)

-can’t immediately like/heart songs, without having to click on the triple dot menu, which is a pain when trying to like/add multiple songs from a playlist to my saved music

Frankly, I was expecting the functionality of the desktop app on such a large device and don’t see why that can’t translate. Since I am transitioning to a no-desktop setup these are functions that make me think of possibly using a different streaming service instead because they are so vital being able to organize the music I listen to. If there are any workarounds for managing these issues from iPad please let me know.
