iOS 5 and 6 are both supported in the current application.
iOS has a dedicated legacy application called Spotify for iOS 4 😉
I have this EXACT same problem! I have a similar setup - iPhone 4, iOS 5.0, but on O2 in the UK) since I upgraded to 0.6.0 my Spotify app crashes whenever I open it and it's not connected to wifi. I found I can get it to work and play my offline tracks by putting my phone in airplane mode when I'm out and about. Obviously this means I can't receive calls or texts or basically use any of the functions of my iphone.
This is a huge problem for me as the only reason I pay for Spotify premium is to use it on my phone while out and about. I have never had any problems like this before and it coincided directly with upgrading to 0.6.0. I hope this can be fixed soon!
I have the same issue as all other users in this thread: App works fine on wifi/airplane mode but crashes instantly after starting up while on 3G.
I note that there was a Spotify app update yesterday, which DID FIX OTHER CRASH issues, but did not fix the 3G crash issue. It would be nice if this was given some priority.
I have tried all the suggestions give here (reinstalling the app, rebooting/powering off), short of clean reinstalling everything on the phone, which would be an outrageously invasive procedure.
Interestingly, upon reinstall the app works fine on 3G until the point where one has logged in - then it briefly shows the app screen at shuts down. Let this be another hint to the developers for where to look for the bug in their software.
Spotify: It sucks big time to pay a monthly fee for a non-functional product. Meanwhile, please do not charge for this (lack of) service.
