Ever seen the message that certain Youtube videos are unavailable on mobile devices?
Or notice that you can watch Monday Night Football on the iPad but not on the iPhone.
'Your Music' seems like just a much better way to organize features that are already availably on the iPad (able save to device etc) but I don't think it's completely absurd for it to be a legal hangup.
When will a spotify rockstar get proactive and ask for clearance to tell us all what is going on??
Yes, this is odd! I'm new to Spotify, and I exepected the iPad version to beat the iPhone version in features, but it's the other way around!
Looks like it's been like this for a while too. Makes you wonder if Spotify are in trouble somehow? The iPad and iPhone version shold be pretty similar source-code wise, so it can't be a huge effort to keep them in parity.
Hmm.. I get this email saying someone has replied. It was a very interesting reply too.
Then I go here and the reply is nowhere to be seen.
Is the Spotify staff removing critical posts?
If so, this would be s a very bad sign for the company, and it would be high time for introspection.
I've been around for a while, and I can see the writing on the wall when updates stop coming, major functionality never shows up, and community members get censored.
I like that I can use my rpi and listen to Spotify without having to use the airplay method, which can be limiting and annoying at times.
I can't get that with some of the alternatives at the moment.
Being an album guy, I was happy to see the Your Music feature (I have never even bothered creating a playlist in my life), and equally unhappy when it's wasn't on the iPad. I also expected the iPad's large screen to be much better utilized.
I might use Spotify for a few months. I like getting access to some older esoteric Nordic stuff, being a Swede myself.
But in the long term I'll keep my fingers crossed for other options.
Oh, one more thing: On the US site, which I get directed to all the time for some reason, the price is USD 9.99. Fine, I can afford that.
Then when I look at signing up, it's suddenly £9.99. Whaat? Ripped off again for being in the UK. Perhaps I'll pass on this after all.
P.S: Ok, so I'm now a "Gig Goer". Bit silly to send an rank update after every single posting... Sort of devalues it. (In my case it's a total waste.)
P.P.S: And now I'm a Concert Regular! Soon I'll be the CEO of Spotify at this rate!
