We have some good news for Spotify lovers, as it looks like the makers of the popular streaming service are finally ready to unleash an iPad app. An image has apparently leaked out ahead of a scheduled event later this week and it could have spoiled the beans for the makers if they were planning to keep this a surprise.
If you are a regular user of the service, you’ll know that an iPad app was one of the big requests from users, especially those who fork up for a premium account. A lot of premium users are not too happy with the quality of the iPhone app compared to the desktop version, but there’s little doubt that an official iPad app would quickly put a smile back on those faces to make the subscription fee that much more worthwhile.
The image which you can see over at BGR here was uploaded to Instagram by a Swedish user, but has since vanished into thin air. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that Spotify wanted this to be kept underwraps for the event on April 18th, but we’re just hoping that they have further announcements in place, rather than just being specifically related to an app for the iPad.
As for the image itself, it looks as good as you might expect. We’re still considerably frustrated though that Spotify still isn’t available in countries like Hong Kong, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that more availability is also one of the planned announcements for Wednesday.
Spotify seems to be the one number choice for many music lovers now as far as streaming services are concerned, but what do you think about the premium subscription – is it value for money? If you have been using the paid service for a number of months now, let us know if you think it is worth it, or if you have any alternative services to recommend others.
