Spotify apps for mobile phones and tablets

An overview of the best Spotify apps for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows mobile.

You probably all know the official Spotify App for iPhone, Android, Windows, BlackBerry. So let's skip these and put the spotlights on some interesting third party apps.

A Spotify iPad app

Something millions of Spotify users have been waiting for. A Spotify App for the iPad. Good news, it is there. The app is called Spotable. Not made by Spotify, but by The Famous Software Company using the Spotify API.

But who cares, it works and it looks a whole lot better than the iPhone app on your iPad

The app has most of the Spotify basic functions and it sure is nice to browse collections and even read the artist bio while listening.

It is not 100% perfect yet, you cannot create playlists and there is no connection with your Facebook friends (should you miss this). But for the rest most features are there including off-line syncing.

Now let’s wait and see if Spotify can top this.

You need a Spotify Premium subscription of course but Spotable is available for free in your local iTunes App Store.
