On the Spotify blog they have a video of the latest version of the Spotify iPhone app that has just been submitted to the iPhone app store for approval. Notice how on the video, the Spotify client is in the position on the home screen that the iPod app normally occupies. I wonder if Apple is going to like this.
Some of the interesting details emerging about the app are:
- Won’t be released in the US app store since Spotify is not available in the U.S (sniff)
- Free Download
- Only works for premium users
- Offline mode allows you to cache 3,333 tracks (!)
- Works on iPod touch
- Music stops when you switch away from the app
I’m really looking forward to being able to run this app. And rumor is that it won’t be long before people in the US get to play.
