Spotify releases app for BlackBerry

Spotify, which has been introduced to iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Symbian and all other platforms, has now been made available to BlackBerry users worldwide.

Like other versions on other platforms, the Spotify service for BlackBerry will still require premium subscription, in order for individuals to stream music.

If you’re new to Spotify, premium users will be able to play music anytime and anywhere for your music catalog in the app. You can also create you’re playlist. You can also search for specific tracks, artists, albums on the app and receive and as well send tracks to your friends.

You can try the app via their free 48 hour free trial if you aren’t sure you’d love this app. You can download Spotify in the BlackBerry App World. There is also a promo in the BlackBerry App World where you can have a 30 day free trial.

The Spotify app is available for almost all BlackBerry devices including smartphones from the Bold and Curve lines. Unfortunately, smartphones that run on CDMA-network and the Torch 9800 aren’t currently supported.

This is something good for BlackBerry after all the problems that have surfaced for the company.

Do you think BlackBerry can bounce back from their problems?

Spotify for iPad now available

Online music streaming service Spotify released its much awaited iPad app that is a complete upgrade to the iPhone app that preceded it.

This latest app from Spotify is available for free to premium subscribers. Those who pay a monthly fee of $9.99 will be able to listen to the app. Though the company is offering a free 48 hour trial, this can be extended to 30 days if you wish to give them a little information about yourself.

The company has about 3 million paying subscribers, but majority of them have no iPads so those who can enjoy this app are relatively small. This still is good news considering that the number of individuals owning iPads out there are growing by leaps and bounds.

There is a search function that enables users to access the catalogue of the site. You can create, adjust and share playlists with your friends and followers. You can plug your iPad into your stereo system and you can have a party with your friends the whole night.

The main page of the app, called “What’s New”, gives you a little hint on how to navigate through the entire app or site. It gives you a glimpse of a few new releases.

Hopefully, Spotify can improve on the app in the future weeks to come.
