Had the same problem but I probably found a solution*:

 

labels say "username and password"

Although on the webinterface you can type your email and password as well.

But the (iphone) app does not seem to work with email.

 

I tried to login about 10 times, reset password, uninstalled the app... nothing seemed to work.

But then I took a closer look at the login form labels and tried one last, simple thing.

 

You have to enter - as the label says - your username and NOT your registered email.

At least this worked for me.

 

*So it is no technical problem or bug but an interface/usability/user expactation issue :P

Users don't read ... (me included)

This is the correct solution, thank you. However, it is a development flaw not a flaw of the users. The login form field actually reads "username OR email" . So an email SHOULD work but the ap developer did not include a check for the email, only the username. Thanks for sorting this out. Spotify needs to correct this issue in their iPhone ap.

When you are trying to log in with your iPhone app use the beginning of your email and leave the (@emailsubscribed.com) out of it. So just use the beginning.

I can log onto the website, just not the app.

Are you logging in with exactly the same credentials? If your account is linked to facebook, you need to log in with your facebook credentials and will need the facebook app installed on your mobile.

I'm unable to log on via iOS on iPad. Log on via web is ok. I have reset password and problem persists. I've reinstalled the app and problem persists. Don't know what to do anymore...
