Spotify prepares to launch iPhone app

updated 09:20 am EDT, Mon July 27, 2009

Spotify iPhone app coming

Streaming music service Spotify is preparing to launch an iPhone app, says the BBC. The title is currently waiting for approval from Apple, and permits premium (paid) subscribers to stream Spotify playlists away from a desktop. A notable difference in the mobile client is the ability to temporarily store a playlist, allowing for offline listening.

The app is set to be free download, but will be unusable without a premium Spotify subscription, which costs 10 per month in the UK. The desktop service is currently only accessible from a European IP address; an American version is scheduled to launch before the end of the year. Aside from enabling the mobile app, a premium subscription removes unwanted advertising.
