Not having the Your Music functionality on the iPad renders the app useless if you embraced Your Music when it was rolled out months ago. Forcing users who use iPad as well as any other device to basically manage their music in 2 different ways is extremely frustrating. I will also add that the SONOS app hasn't added access to Your Music either, which sucks.
I'm done with this garbage. Not only are they not adding basic functions, every update makes it more of a hassle to navigate the already slow interface. Having an interface that manages to be both barebones and clunky at the same time is seriosuly impressive. Im not renewing my subscription when it runs out unless serious improvements are made.
Seriously mate, what evidence, other than "it must happen eventually" do you have to back up your statement that it is "in development"? This thread, which already said the iPad app was outdated, was started 9 months ago (yes, I know, by you 🙂 ). So far no Spotify staff have bothered to comment and the only other info we have had are, from MattSuda in April "The developers are working on an updated iPad update with a new design similar to the iPhone app and it will include Discover and Your Music. Shouldn't be too long of a wait. Maybe 1-3 months wait at the most. (just my best guess)" - I never knew what Matt meant by "at most, possibly" (paraphrasing), but anyway it's 3 months tomorrow - and, from Spotify Support just 3 weeks ago, relayed by spom409, "As much as I'd love to be able to tell you that we're going to release an update soon, there's currently no plans to do so. Sorry about that!"!
Frankly, without a proper commitments from Spotify, any "back channel" promises of "development" are just empty platitudes on their part, at this point!
I used Beats Music for a couple of months when they first launched to see the differences, and initially preferred it to Spotify solely because of the ability to save music to your library. The problem with Beats at least at the time I cancelled my subscription there was that the desktop experience is horrible. I listen to music on my mac at work all day long and found myself playing music from anywhere but Beats because the interface was lousy and at times you plain lost connection. Once Spotify added My Music, my choice to switch back was simple. Of course at the time, I didn't realize that the iPad app was going to be the black sheep of the Spotify family.
@Sam, as some have said already, at this point I don't even care about an impressive iPad interface. Just the ability to put the iPhone app on my iPad and so access 90% of my music without searching every time would be a start!
