Spotify is the world’s greatest music streaming service and one of our favourite iPhone music apps.

Spotify Review

by on March 17, 2010

Spotify arrived on iPhone last September and it very quickly became a ‘Marmite app’, in that music lovers either loved it or hated it.

Most of the haters didn’t like the app for the simple reason that to access both your personal Spotify playlist and the service’s immense jukebox of over four million tunes ‘in the cloud’ via your iPhone you have to be a Spotify Premium member. Which costs £10 a month subscription fee.

Many fans of the service, us included, were more than happy to shell out a tenner a month to have access to pretty much all of the world’s pop and rock back catalogue at any time of day, wherever they may be.

Gripes from some fans about the cost of subscription fees aside, the app itself is very well designed. It is simple and uncluttered, but lets you access your own playlists or search for new music very easily indeed.

One of the coolest features of Spotify on iPhone is the option to stream music immediately via 3G, which works remarkably well most of the time, with little drop-off in audio quality. And as with the desktop client you can search for tunes via artist, title, album, genre, label or year.

Finally, you can even play up to 3,333 tunes offline where you have no Wi-Fi or 3G connection. Natch!
