I had the same problems with several minutes to synchronise a track, but found that synchronising at 6am was considerably faster than during the evening. So I had to wake up earlier in order to sync!
However I'm now syncing 961 tracks at 8pm on a Sunday and it's already done 170 tracks, so it seems the problem I've experienced over the last few months has been fixed and syncing is back to normal. I had an iPhone 4 on 5.0.1 at all times and now 5.1.
Re: Spotify is extremely slow to sync offline playlists on iOS
I am having the same problen with slow sync. I am cosidering canceling and returning to Pandora and Itunes. it was fast at one time now it takes forever to download. what made me sing up and be an advocate fo this servce was the speed of download
This is so frustrating! Just got a new iPhone 4s on iOS 5.1 and the offline playlist syncing is so slow! About 8 songs after an hour??
I have spotify on my MacBook pro and my android tablet. Syncs up super quick over my home network. I have a very fast Internet connection. What is going on here? I've tried keeping the screen unlocked and tried turning off mobile data. Ive also tried downloading offline playlists with the app playing. No luck. What is wrong with the iOS app?
I tried deleting the app an reinstalling. Still super slow. On my android tablet it too just a n hour to sync my entire 1200 song playlist. On my iPhone it's ridiculously slow. It's been 6 hours and only 46 songs downloaded fork offline playlists? What is going on? I'm about to cancel my subscription over this.
Yes I'm on wifi. Yes I've tried different networks. Yes I have a track playing and the screen to never sleep or lock. Ive tried everything. So is the app just broken. If that's the case i wish spotify would just admit it so I know what to expect!
