It is horrible. Switching over to Rdio if this doesn't get fixed in the next few days.

I have the same experience... but not global for the app.

I only have issues when I try to play a playlist I synced from my pc with songs that doesn't exists in spotify.

All other songs I stream are fine!

Here in the thread I explained my problem a little bit detailed.

Reinstalling the app didn't worked.

Same problems. 5-10 seconds pause between tracks. The Bluetooth DNLA doesn't update for between 25-30 seconds. Off line tracks stutter. Interface is very slow and sometimes unusable.

I've also had this problem and uninstalling/reinstalling didn't work for me. I hope the issue is resolved quickly, I  typically use the mobile app in the car and not being able to easily forward through a track indeed renders Spotify mostly useless to me.

Dear Spotify,

Your App is a **bleep**ing heap of **bleep**, it's had bugs since I can remember. I pay for the premium service but receive subpar software and service.

Please know, that as soon as a alternative is available I'll switch, just waiting for Beats Music to support australian and I'm **bleep**ing you guys off.

Every app promises bug fixes, and you fail everytime. You've proved yourselves incompetent many times and there is no coming back from that.

OP here,

 

After using the app for 2 days after re-installing, it's back to a crawl. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with local files synced into the app, or just being used for 2 days. The solution therefore does not work completely.

 

Still have the issue.

Dear spotify.

 

Considering that I spent in the last months more time with issues in the app than enjoying music and, additionally, considering  a number of functions that me and a lot of users like me, are waiting for long time now (landscape on IOS and buffering of next songs to avoid reproductions gaps, just to make 2 examples) I decide to cancel my premium subscription and move to Google music play.

 

I feel a little sad doing that because you were the first offering this service and I was your customer for long time now, but I feel the service is not any longer matching the expectations. Specially on the customer care site, in consideration that we are paying 9,99€ each month.

 

 

 

Thanks for the good music you provide to me on this time.

Same issue / symptoms for me on the standard iphone 4. Unfortunate given that offline streaming with bluetooth in the car is the most compelling reason for a premium subscription right now.

Same problem here...

If it's not a quicfix,  then please remove the version completely and give us the old one back until its fixed!

This IOS release is a HORRIBLE! it takes 5 seconds to just move to the next song. I wind up pressing it 10 times then over the course of 90 seconds, it slowly moves forward one song at a time with huge lapses.. I will kill it then and have the same thing happen again after a pianful restart.

I have used SPotify for years. Now looking for something else. what a disaster. Do you test your software spofity? Using a Ipod Touch v5

Fire your SQA staff. they suck
