iOS App menu page useless if you've got a mobile data allowance

When you start the app you're presented with the following options:

 

Search

Now

Moments

Running

Music

Shows

Your Library

 

As it turns out, if I'm outside and wanting to save my mobile data allowance, the only one I'm interested in is the last one: the music I've already synced to the phone; all of the other options will either tell me to connect to the Internet or silently use up my allowance without my consent. 

 

Based on previous experience I know it's utterly futile to suggest anything here, but could you possibly tweak this a bit?

What in particular are you looking for them to implement? 

 

It is possible to prevent Spotify from using cellular data (click me!); though adimtadly it is a bit of a round about way to go about it.

 

And as far as those other features go, they're features that require data to be streamed, so they're not possible in offline mode. You can't really discover new music if you can't connect to the internet, etc., so there's really nothing to be done to fix that experience.
