…. will it be crippled
Spotify have confirmed their iPhone application and a short video demo is sitting on my favourite trusted resource TrustedReviews.
With offine modes, sharing facility (with other Spotify users) and multi device sync this looks a really interesting development in the current streaming vs downloading debate. It also now creates a reason for you to pay for the premium spotify service as the iPhone app will only be available to premium subscribers.
However the big issue here is whether those nice folks at Cupertino will certify it and more importantly ever allow it to run over HSDPA/3G connections. What ?? Simply protecting their iTunes franchise in the face of competition from the streaming market ?? Surely not ??
Lets wait and see.
