Just got Spotify premium for ipad- it's great! Got a Q about browsing and finding new music: how do you guys do it?
I understand that you can:
- search for a specific artist or song
- and you can find nice user-created playlists
But I want to:
- discover new music related to my tastes
- browse a genre of music instead of having to search for specific artists
Is there a way to do any of these things?
Thanks for your time, fellas!

Do you only use the iPad, or do you use it on the computer too?
On the computer, there are a number of apps you can install in the Spotify program that are good for music discovery/recommendations. There is also a radio option.
On the iPad, the in-app music discovery options are pretty limited. There is the related artists feature, other people's playlists, and that's about it. There are quite a few external websites that can interact with Spotify and give recommendations. I have always liked Spotibot for generating playlists based on your last.fm account or whatever artist you type in. There used to be links to a bunch of different sites on Spotify's site, but I can't find them right now.
There an ipod for Ipod called Spotilicious and playes music based on which Genre you pick It has alot more than I ever knew of existed. It's on Ipod. App store. Hope that helps.
