Unable to rearrange playlists in New Spotify

Casual Listener

I'm a Premium account user and use both the mobile and desktop versions, mostly mobile on my iPhone 4. After a recent 'update' to my Spotify app, I can now no longer rearrange playlists on my phone. This is a terrible downgrade, as on-the-fly rearranging was one of the main reasons I loved the app and justified paying for it monthly. 

The only solution I've been able to come up with is to install the old iOS4 Spotify app, arrange my playlists on there, and listen using it or the new version of the app. This is so inconvenient though. I saw somewhere that a Spotify developer said this function was taken away in order to expedite the release of the new Spotify app, and that the function would return once they had figured out how to make it operate properly without crashing. WHY? I would have rather kept my old Spotify app (not the iOS4 one) if I had been told I can't rearrange playlists if I update.


If the function doesn't return I would honestly consider cancelling my Premium subscription, and I know the other members of my band would as well. I just want the functionality the app once had. 😛

How long until this is sorted out. Thank god I still have version 0.5.6 on my iPod touch that I will NEVER update and have in my iTunes until this SIMPLE FEATURE is implemented again. I posted this same thing almost verbatim in the 0.6.0 release notes and NO response from anyone. I accidentally updated to 0.6.1 and will be TRASHING this garbage update, back to 0.5.6 for me. If there is anyone who wants it let me know and I can try to get it to you. If you are jail broken you can use full force to update to a "shiny new interface"
