As an Android 4.0 user, I feel like I’ve been waiting a long time for a reliable and up to date music streaming service. Then, like proverbial buses, two come along at once!
For a while it seemed like Spotify had all but abandoned the Android platform and since Google launched the Play Store there has been a conspicuous music-shaped hole in its UK product line. Literally! (Screenshot 1 - Left).
The wait was over in April when Spotify released a revamped beta version of its Android App. The new UI is great and makes excellent use of a menu tray to access the main functions.
A preview panel of the song Now Playing makes switching between the media player and other parts of the app a breeze. This is a real improvement from the previous version where the sliding panel seemed a little clumsy.
