Spotify used to be GREAT. Now it SUCKS.


Spotify is not listening to it’s users who are upset over the update they made in Feb. 2013.

There have been ZERO IMPROVEMENTS made to SPOTIFY LOAD SPEED or rather LACK OF SPEED in the SPOTIFY APP loading on my computer since after their HORRIBLE UPDATE.

SPOTIFY still loads too slow and takes too long to play music. It sucks.

It used to be just fine before the update.

I am now forced to use iTunes every morning when I boot up my PC because it takes SPOTIFY so long to load and be able play music.

10 to 20 minutes is ridiculous to have to wait for something to load.

I have high speed internet and can stream videos just fine – but the spotify app loads and acts like a zombie until 10 to 20 minutes passes and the app loads all it’s crap.

Everything else on my Windows 7 PC loads fast EXCEPT SPOTIFY after your lousy update.

itunes – less than 1 minute and it is ready.

Chrome or Internet Explorere is ready in 10 or so seconds to play videos or music.

Why not the NEW version Spotify?

It was a huge step backwards when you updated Spotify and it seems you have no interest in serving the tons of people complaining in your forum who are upset their favorite MUSIC APP has gone bad.

Look at the thread Horrible update which has 4,343 entries as of today (April 12, 2013)

That’s a lot of upset people. Your fans are angry. Don’t you care?

There must be some secret reason you’d endure this kind of user wrath just to have your bloated new version of Spotify stay as it is.

I just had another unpleasant experience with SPOTIFY (this happens every day by the way)

I rebooted my PC because SPOTIFY STOPPED PLAYING (that happens a lot – it feels like it ran out of memory or something and just won’t play any more) and since I know how long it takes for spotify to start up – I started it and went for a walk

20 minutes later when I cam back it was still a zombie

If I clicked on the app or a playlist I would get a windows alert saying the program was not responding.

I finally gave up.

Spotify used to be GREAT. Now it SUCKS.

I would be thrilled to have another alternative as I don’t need this extra GRIEF every time I want to listen to music.

Start paying attention SPOTIFY or you’ll lose the loyal base you gathered up so quickly.

Easy Geeks!
