    I would really like to know if our Europe invites will work for the US version.

    Yay! I can finally go legit ;). But really, I’ve favored MOG lately because of it’s 320 kbps downloads to mobile. Spotify was only 160 kbps last I checked, and you can really hear the difference.

    That’s true, Spotify Mobile’s max bitrate is ~160 kbps. Better than many, but given it’s offered on the desktop and MP3 downloads are 320 too there really should be an option for this on mobile.

    Great news! More competition from MOG, Rido and co. will definitely spirit Spotify up and give us a even more awesome product! Once they find people do care about MOG’s 320 kbps advantage…

    I mentioned the bitrate difference on their customer service forums months ago, and stated explicitly that I would stick to MOG until they upgraded it. No response. :(

    so where is the ipad app then?

    Really thought they would update the iOs software and add an iPad version of spotify with the US launch. 

    edit: looks like they just added folder support for iOS version. Great!

    Agree with the crashing problem – it kept happening even after I rebooted my phone, so had to delete and reinstall the app.
