Spotify Has Improved But Needs Ratings or It Will die

While I have to say I still miss some of the features of the old music player software I was using before Spotify and iTunes came around, I will say Spotify has improved.

The ability to play related songs is very cool. It helps me find new music.

What I don’t understand though is why they continue to omit the ratings of songs???

Don’t they realize that people have a personal library of songs and like to rate them?

That omission is a mystery to me. After all if they want to take me away from Apple iTunes and my music library they need to give me the features I need to properly organize my music collection.

Being able to rate songs makes it easy to play only the good ones when wanted and also create playlists that are better.

On iTunes I can quickly make playlists of “only 5’s” or 4 and above.

If you want a great playlist this is the best way to do it.

Need to find good songs fast and put them on a cd or send to other devices? Sort by rating and you can do it fast!

Unfortunately you can’t do it in Spotify. You can in iTunes and most other jukebox music software players.



High Tech at!

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.

Spotify Update takes a big step backwards

I finally found an ANGRY thread on Spotify forum about latest UPDATE and now realize that the Spotify update may be what is causing my PC to act weird.

I am having problems I did not have before and my pc certainly is more sluggish.


That is what really upsets me is that in the morning when I turn on my PC it now takes MUCH LONGER for Spotify to be responsive enough to PLAY music on.

I mean it is SIGNIFICANTLY SLOWER to load.

At least 10 minutes after booting up my pc.

I have to keep coming back over and over again to see if it has finished INITIALIZING  yet and that is very annoying.

Then when the interface finally does load if you click on anything it zombies out and looks like it has frozen. The graphics are all stalled and the program is unresponsive.

I think this update is awful and not only is it SLUGGISH and BLOATED I don’t like the new look.

There must be some kind of TRACKING or SPY stuff going on that they insist on keeping this DOG VERSION up and running when the old one was so good.

Man – I loved Spotify but now have to admit I am getting angry and will start using other apps instead of wasting my time WAITING for spotify.

NOW – am I crazy or this SPOTIFY VERSION now affecting my PC as well? Someone else said their pc was slow.

Geez – I hate when people force stuff on me. This forced update is not good. I want the old spotify back.
