I'm having this problem as well. I can confirm that Spotify only stays logged in in offline mode as long as the app remains in the device memory. As soon as I've launched enough other apps to get Spotify kicked out of memory, it requests that I login again.
I'm getting the same problem. Iphone 4 newest iOS. Very frustrating - i keep spotify on offline mode as it drains too much of my battery with online mode, but I then have to "connect" and login before i can use spotify? DEFEATS THE PURPOSE?
Re: Constantly asking for login, even when in offline modus
I have the same problem and it's really ennoying ! I'm launching spotify everyday in the metro to play offline songs (and paying 10€/month just for this feature) with no internet connexion and it always asks me to login before listening offline sync songs, or using spotify at all. WTF guys ? Please let us use your service for what we pay for. Offline means offline, not "log in every time and play offline after".
Re: Can't access offline playlist - keeps asking me to login?
Just an FYI: this issue seems to be resolved for me. Whatever you guys did, I didn't have to log in again from offline mode and the countdown timer ("x days left") also displays the correct number of days instead of just "-".
So far, so good.
This post has been open for 4 weeks! I'm seeing some posts on the Android forum that seems to point to similar issues. I had the issue for at least 5 weeks now.
I am calling BS on the comment of "the top people are working on it." Either those top people are high-schoolers or they are not really giving this much attention.
Just come clean Spotify - are you removing this feature? Waiting for the next iOS to fix it? What?? Just roll back your code to an earlier version that was working. Or give us the ability to use that older version.
