I am a premium customer and recently upgraded to version 18.104.22.16851 on my iPhone 5 and I've been experiencing several problems. First, it takes a really long time to switch between songs (in the previous version it was instantaneous). Second, the songs will sometimes skip while playing, as if my phone was having trouble processing the track (again not a problem in the previous version). Finally, the app crashes fairly regularly. Probably once per day on average. The problem seems to be exacerbated when I try to skip one or two songs in a row.
I wonder if there's a way to switch back to the previous app or otherwise fix these problems? I've loved Spotify up until now, but I'm afraid I'll have to cancel my subscription if I can't get these serious bugs worked out. It's made Spotify virtually unusable.
I'm having the exact same issues, takes multiple seconds to switch songs, even for offlined playlist content. From usuage i would guess it has something to do with loading extraneous data such as album artwork, The app seems to switch songs faster if i'm not displaying album artwork, however it still is so slow its almost unusable.
