Just recently, it has also launched it’s version for iPad, hard on the footsteps of rival music streamers Deezer, Rdio and Mog. The tablet version of this music discovery app is easy to use and has a fast download time. Aside from the usual features seen on the previous iPhone version, such as being able to search for new music, create playlists, and share them with other users, there is also another feature which is unique to this iPad version. You are now able to discover new music through an extensive directory list of artists and bands. Tapping on an artist like Duran Duran, for example, will bring out other similar 80’s artists and bands of the same genre like Spandau Ballet and Aha.
The tablet’s bigger screen size will also allow you to appreciate the optimized graphics and layout of this app. You can cache playlists for offline listening, or have a live-streaming on your tablet. It is also very uncomplicated to use since the music player will remain at the bottom of the screen even while you are scanning different pages and exploring new artists.
Spotify’s chief product officer Gustav Soderstrom is very proud of their new app and wants people to have a trouble-free music listening experience, saying that he pictures users at home reclining on big sofas, “maybe with a stereo with AirPlay, and this is to a large extent a remote control." In essence, using this app on your tablet really does feel like having a big remote control which you can use anywhere, anytime. The $9.99 monthly subscription fee is a minimal investment compared to the ease and possibilities this music app brings.
