Spotify for iOS Updated With New Interface Enhancements
The Spotify application for iOS has Wednesday morning received a nice little update that improves upon the user interface of the application.
The application now has a sidebar, which is becoming a popular navigation tool for mobile applications because of the efficiency of display space and easy-to-access design. Spotify used to have tabs at the bottom of the application, similarly to the Music application, for navigating around the application.
In addition, Spotify now displays a now-playing banner at the bottom of the application no matter where you are in the application so you can easily get back to the song you’re playing. Tapping on the banner reveals the song you’re playing in the Spotify music player, and tapping on the title bar of the Spotify music player shrinks the music interface back down into now-playing banner mode.
Also new is the ability to tap on a new ellipsis button to the right of any song to reveal options for the song, such as adding the song to your playlists, rating the song, adding the song to your queue, sharing the song, or going to the album or artist of the song to see more like the song.
In addition to the user interface improvements, Spotify for iOS has gained some bug fixes as well. An issue with the “Track only available online” pop-up appearing has been fixed, an issue with the lock screen not displaying the right track has been fixed, and an issue with shuffle play has been fixed.
The update is free from the App Store in the Updates tab if you're an existing user. Alternatively, you can download the Spotify application for free from this link
