The latest re-write is atrocious, there is near on a thousand pages on the Spotify forums of users who dislike the latest version - Several wanted features have been removed with vague promises they will be included at a later date - Many users have downgraded (upgraded?) to a pre 1.0 version so they can continue to use it - Apart from features being removed the latest version uses far more memory, & isn't as configurable, there is virtually nothing to like about it.

Nice software that makes it incredibly easy to find/browse music/albums you'd normally not listen to,or simply forgotten. To find a custom playlist from a specific USERNAME you simply use a syntax in the Spotify search field:

spotify:user:USERNAME

NOTES:

Linux DEB package available for Ubuntu/Debian based distros:
https://www.spotify.com/us/download/previews/

Linux RPM package available for Fedora based distros:
http://negativo17.org/spotify-client/

Unfortunately Spotify Windows client DID NOT run properly under WINE last time I tested.

Love this program! Looks a lot like Songbird, a discontinued media player not long ago. Makes it incredibly easy to find and browse music/albums you'd normally not listen to. To find a custom playlist from a specific USERNAME you simply use a syntax in the Spotify search field:

spotify:user:USERNAME

One minor bug,when you browse an artist's' album, sometimes it's non responsive or doesn't go back immediately when you hit the "back" button;waiting a few more seconds and it will respond to go back. Pretty solid and stable for me on Windows 8.1,no crashes and running for hours.

It's time this program was in final, there are no noticeable changes with each release apart from some improved stability (it had plenty of room to improve here) - Spotify uses ridiculous amounts of RAM within 2 minutes of launching it was using well in excess of 300 MEG & the program still terminates when it wants to - It seems the developers pay no attention to it's users in it's own forum.

Only using this desktop version can you specify HQ streaming which still is only equivalent to MP3 360 Bitrate but on most apps you get what they give you which is 128 MP3 equivalent, not good enough for £10 a month ($16.68).

Still unstable & prone to crashing, the program will actually close totally whenever it bloody well wants too - It really is about time this was sorted esp. as I pay for the privilege of using it - Also with updates few or no new features/options are added as 'mentallo666' says options to the interface are long overdue.

Hopefully there will be some decent competition for the likes of Spotify & use on more than one device simultaneously as single use is ridiculous for the cost - Spotify try to defend this using licensing restrictions as the reason - Rubbish!

I use the premium account, the problem I had with the previous version was the program would often crash when adding songs to a playlist, here is hoping they have fixed that annoying bug - Another than that, it's excellent - Can't speak for the free version as I don't use it ~

So many ads in the free version that it's the user who should be payed for.
In fact, cheaper to use the registered paying version :)

Lots,lots of ads in free version,and use it is a absurd for now.Today is lots of free alternatives with no ads at all and do not needed spend a dime for listen everything you want.Also music database not a large for every listener,with specific taste.Songs stored locally but if you not pay for extend,everything is blocked. I try both premium subscription couple monts ago and consider do not extend any more..

More and more advertising everyday. Otherwise a great service with a great catalog of music. If only they could make the interface a tad bit better... And how many years does it take to get to version 1.0? :)

Great app. Works in The Netherlands. An overwhelming amount of streaming music: modern, classical, jazz whatever. Free for a maximum of 20 hours a month.

I can't fault this little gem.here in the UK it works a treat and all your playlists are stored online.If you want to download track to your pc you can if you pay,which is keeping things legal,but leaving your music online means you can access it from anywhere,so well done to the Spotify team
