Spotify on iPhone works great over 3G, but not so well over Edge


Then there's the More tab. Not a lot to say about this one, but there are options for help, as well as to sign out and force the offline mode to switch on.

Spotify on iphone

Our verdict

Spotify for iPhone is fast over 3G and great to use. We're sure it'll be a winner especially for the offline playlists. Better buffering over Edge would also be a huge bonus.

Remember that while the app will be free, you'll need a Premium Spotify account to use it.

£10 a month doesn't seem too bad, but most of us already pay a lot of cash for entertainment each month. £50 for Sky, £35 for your mobile, DVD sub and more. Is the extra cost justifiable when we all already have libraries full of music anyway?

The Spotify iPhone app certainly has have the potential to be a game changer, even if our gut feeling is that the usual Apple restriction - no multitasking - does restrict it so much that it's simply not convenient for many situations when you want to listen to music while doing something else with your iPhone.
