Can't follow artists and playlists on iOS. I can tap on the follow button, but if I go to the "Me" screen to access the list of who I'm following, the app just hangs. The count also does not change when I follow somebody. Currently, the count is stuck at 21. This is on an iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1.3.
I logged into the Spotify web player from Chrome on a friends Windows PC. I'm able to access the list of who I'm following on the web player, but the iOS app just shows a spinning wheel and "Loading...". But the list never loads in iOS :/. It just spins and spins.
I've deleted the app and reinstalled spotify twice. I still can't see the artists I'm following. Everything else in the app works fine and following works on my desktop. Just no joy on my iPhone 5s. It stalls out when I select "following" and just says "loading".
Sorry, I'm actually stumped. Removing the app and reinstalling on my iPhone 4 fixed the problem for a little while, but it didn't last. The problem returned after a little while. I've essentially given up on it.
Thanks for the feedback. I had the same issue. When I first updated Spotify to the version that allowed following, it worked for a while, then it stopped. Now, no matter how many times I delete and reinstall, following doesn't work any more.
At least I know I'm not the only one with this problem. It's really frustrating. I hate having a gazillion playlists, when basicallyy I'm simply intersted in an artists entire discography.
