Can't follow on iOS

Regular
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.

Strange, it might be worth a clean reinstallation of the application, but you will need to resync any offline playlists you have.

Does it update correctly when you view your list from another application?

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.

Yup! That was the ticket! I'd have tried it sooner if I had thought of it. Strange how it turned out to be the most basic of solutions.

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". 

 

Any other ideas.?

 

thx!

Any other ideas?  I've reinstalled 2-3 times and still I can't follow artists using my iphone 5s.  I'm following about 50 artists and they simply won't load on my phone.
