I'm using spotify for over 5 years now. I was loyal all the time, except that one time when I tried to switch to Apple Music for better phone integration - but your interface was better. Now - If this UI stays as it is - I will finally make the switch.
What where you thinking? We feel at home in your App. We build our own music library - we feel like vinyl store owners carefully compiling our catalog of good music.
This update invaded our homes and pushed our content away from us. This is emotional. Look through all the new posts, people really feel hurt.
You oversimplified, wasted huge amounts of precious space. Scrolling through my playlists or albums now feels like using a Windows Phone with this HUGE tiles (ew).
I compiled the main concerns I have with this update and also provided a visual on top:
Please bring back the following UI model:
Start App -> Overview of my Stuff -> List to choose from (Albums, Artists, Podcasts), etc -> FULL SCREEN CONTENT VIEW.
All we want is full screen content, beautifully listed without >5 filter options distracting us all the time.
Thank you for your attention.
