Spotify finally has anapp! The streaming music service has launched a native app for the iPad and it’s free to download. Like the company’s existing mobile apps, it requires a premium subscription to really use. The app supports Apple’s AirPlay technology to stream audio wirelessly to compatible hi-fis, and its graphics – including album artwork – are optimised for the new iPad’s Retina display.
Spotify’s revamped Radio feature is missing, as are the apps that have made its desktop application far more than just a search box. Regardless, what we have here is a streaming music iPad app is more than just a remote control for a hi-fi it can offer a standalone experience. That it is able to offer such a robust experience, even if you need AirPlay compatible speakers, makes this addition a fantastic one, however, my questions is…where is the Android version?
