The Spotify music streaming app for Android has been updated with a range of UI tweaks to make it better suited for “almost any screen resolution, rotation and density, even tablet resolutions.”
The app, originally launched on Google’s platform just over a year ago, has received a major UI overhaul that brings it bang up to date with the growing disparity in screen sizes for Android operated devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab and HTC Desire HD, while looking just as pretty on smaller phones such as the Sony Ericsson X8 and X10 Mini Pro.
The revamped software also brings on-the-fly screen rotation for landscape devices and remedies a raft of issues involving scrubbing of longer tracks, network detection and reconnection, songs not playing in certain cases and an overall improvement to the speed of the application.
The full list of new devices supported are as follows: HTC Desire HD, HTC Desire Z, Huawei U8300, Motorola Cliq, Motorola Cliq XT, Motorola XT720, Samsung Galaxy 3 (Apollo), Samsung Galaxy Tab, Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro, Sony Ericsson X8 and ZTE Blade.
The update is free to download now from the Android Market. However, the use of Spotify on mobiles requires a monthly subscription fee of £9.99.
