Spotify is a joke when it comes to everything related to problems and request from actual users that PAY for their completely broken services. Double facepalm!

App crashes everytime I open it.  Never gets past the startup screen.

As a Premium customer, I would expect that the one thing that I'm paying for (use of Spotify on a mobile device) would work. The app works fine on my iPad Air w/ iOS 8, but it will not get past the splash screen on my Verizon iPhone. It did work when I first upgraded to iOS 8, but the first Spotify app update broke it. This absolutely needs to be fixed.

Ever since i updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 8 my phone has been crashing, even with this update. Once i open the app ill see the Spotify logo for about 10 sec then the app crashs.

Woo! Now I just need to save up the several hundreds of dollars for a CarPlay-equipped head deck (I can dream, I can dream... one day) :p

Once again, no My Music on iPad.

A simple OFFICIAL response from spotify is all we want! 

 It's been confirmed that the new iPad version is in development (somebody correct me if I'm wrong there, it was confirmed on Twitter, I believe?). Seems like the new black look for the app will be released alongside with Your Music and (hopefully) Discover as well.

Geez, I was popping over here to comment on the ridiculous idea of implementing CarPlay before the most requested feature by far (Chromecast) but I didn't realize the iOS version had as many problems as the Android app. To everyone requesting fixes/new features/responses from Spotify, I wouldn't hold your breath.

 

We've been waiting for more than a year for any word on Chromecast and they haven't said a thing. The developers also wrote the Android app so poorly that one person apparently hacked it and they had to replace it entirely (not just an update), but they updated it with a completely broken version and snuck in a bunch of permissions they didn't explain. So if it's any consolation, the developers are just as incapable of rapid iteration (without breaking other features) on all the major mobile platforms.

I noticed in the previous version of the iOS app, on iOS 8, when playing a song on radio, there was an extra button on the lockscreen that had options to thumb up/down songs, and an option to save the song to Your Music as well (however the save option was grayed out).

 

The option appears to have disappeared as of this version. 

 

Does anyone have any idea what that option was exactly? Any idea if it is returning as well? It would've been cool to see it fully implemented! (as in not just for radio)

The dividers were really cool. :(

I also had loads of problems with Spotify on my IPOD this morning. Nothing worked this morning until I connected to wifi. Just got the 3 dots when going into my offline albums :( 

 

Is there a way to roll this back

I like how they closed the other thread without bothering to see if it fixed the issues people were having.

 

I'm on 1.8 and the app still crashes nearly every time I try to play a song.

 

Are spotify going to fix this? Also what about the 2+ weeks of being unable to use the service we are paying for?
