same issues here with 184.108.40.20651. It is pausing ~8 seconds inbetween songs before you can change them. The hole app freezes until that ~8 sec is up and it loads up the timer bar for the song. It needs to be fixed asap
Just wanted to pop in and say this isnt the issue. I have no songs synced already to my ipod. I only have spotify on my ipod.

Do you have local tracks mixed in a playlist with spotify tracks? I've found that that seems to be the issue causing the lock screen troubles for me at least
I believe the issue is a UI issue. Its spending to much time trying to load the app instead of delivering songs and quickly playing them. Sorry for multiple posts. Im just trying to help by giving my input on finding the true issue and a solution to the problem. I have contacted spotify and let them know of this wide spread issue. I haved asked for credit for the month since I paid for the non working serivce. They should fix it. They always do!
Same here. Very frustrating. I'm running on iphone 4. ios 7
Before upgrade it was slow, but still usable. After the upgrade it is simply unusable.
Hit "pause" and 15-30 seconds later it pause. This happens almost all the time.
Hit >> (Next) to skip song and 15-45 seconds later it started playing next song. Sadly, I'm not even exaggerating.
Hit << (Prev) on the curernt song, the app won't register it until the new song already started for about 20 seconds. And by that time, it restarted the next song. If I insist on pressing the << (prev) twice to return to the song I want to listen, app will be freezing for 20 seconds, and then crash.
Hit pause/play/skip/prev too many times because app won't register the command, and the app crashes as well.
If Spotify team does not know how to fix the issue at least give us option to roll back to the previous version. Don't wait until we switch.
It's absolutely astonishing that the Spotify customer service dpt hasn't even announced that this URGENT issue is being taking care of. One week since the update has passed already and you all seem to be too busy bathing in narcissistic investment mania and sucking up to Facebook and Apple. You really have humiliated yourself announcing in media that this version has been tested thoroughly. Absolutely unbelievable.
I have been a paying subscriber of this service for SIX (!) years, and yet I'm being left with a ridiculously unusable app. As a side note it's still not possible to send songs to other users without a disgusting Facebook account, a feature you so brilliantly removed followed by several complaints.
I'm leaving this sinking ship for whatever else I can find with a management that's not beyond all reason, which shouldn't take more than a Google search.
