Spotify for iPad Released
Spotify is a music streaming service, comparable to Pandora, that allows you to play music from anywhere. It includes online and offline mode so you can listen to your favorite tracks whether you have an Internet connection or not. The music client is free on all computers with ads, however mobile users have to purchase Spotify premium, which comes with a monthly fee of $9.99 per month and has no ads. First-time users of the application can try the service for free for up to 30 days.
Spotify has issued an update to their iOS application today (version 0.5.0). The application is finally iPad-compatible and includes some additional fixes for the application for all iOS devices. Yes Ė users could always run the iPhone version of the application on their iPad, however what we have been waiting for is the full-screen version that actually uses the iPad's unique hardware. The interface of the new iPad version has been optimized to take advantage of the large iPad screen as the interface similarly resembles the desktop version, despite some obvious differences.
Apart from the iPad support, the application includes some minor updates for the application universally including gapless playback and cross-fading, a fix for a bug that could cause offline playlists to be deleted by the system, and finally a fix for a crash which was invoked by updating playlists or starring music tracks.
If you have an iPad (or any other iOS device) and you are a music junkie, you should consider taking a look at Spotify. Iíve been using it for a few months now and the sound quality is amazing. It's also a plus not having to use your iOS device's storage to hold music anymore as it allows more space for applications.

Took them long enough, the iPhone version sucks.
Sound quality is great, but it eats up your data quite fast.
I like the looks of this version, hope it don't crash as often.

FYI I don't use limeware but you seem to know what i do. Creepy if you ask me. I would not pay for a service I can get for free aka a radio or pandora. I rather purchase my music via iTunes and listen to what I want when I want. Just give me a monthly fee as well, since you have the money to throw out of the window.
Oh and the spell check is very original. Your should be you're. Wow is all I can say. Really. Bahahhahahahaha

How is paying for a service that is used throwing money out the window? I personally don't subscribe to spotify (yet.) but I do have a Netflix account. And I watch mostly TV series. I also have cable. The ability to watch what I want when I want is worth it to me. The same is true with music. Personally I use pandora, but if I want to listen to something specific, I'm out of luck- enter Spotify... Personal playlists out of everything? Yes, please!

Still no artist radio station support? I guess we still have to use SpotOn for radio station support.

wow, finally! I hope it runs great, I'll try it out later at home
$10 for Spotify service is a BLESSING. Huuuge catalog of music (there was 1 album I couldn't find, In Rainbows by Radiohead). You can download the music and save it to your device for offline listening. But, like Anthony said, it's awesome to free up device memory by deleting your music and listening to it on Spotify instead.
I got a tweak for Siri that opens Spotify when I say "Play artist *****", it's awesome. I can't remember the name off the top of my head.

Honestly i just went with the subscription after dealing with pandora. Pandora chooses the music on it, and its real hard to get on it without a major distribution company putting out there. I don't mind paying $9.99 to hear every band that publishes their music digitally. Some of the bests groups are the unknowns.

It's about time!! Annoys the crap out of me every time it would delete my offline playlists.
