BlackBerry App News: Spotify finally arrives on App World
After yesterday's apologetic bounty of free apps, RIM has some good news on the app front today, with the announcement that Spotify is finally available for the BlackBerry platform. Finally.
Spotify has finally unleashed its Premium music streaming services on the BlackBerry-toting masses, by launching its mobile app.
Spotify mobile is already available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Nokia and even WebOS got some love from the Swedes before the BlackBerry App World is now getting a look in.
To make use of the app, just like on all of those aforementioned platforms, you'll need a Spotify Premium subscription, which costs a tenner a month.
Once you're signed up you'll have access to millions of songs, offline playlists stored on your handset and syncing of playlists between desktop and mobile versions. There's also track scrobbling to Last.fm.
The app is available to download in preview from the BlackBerry App World, but a full and complete version will be released very soon, according to RIM.
The launch of Spotify comes at an ideal time for RIM, which is looking to convince current users that it is worth staying loyal to the brand following last week's disastrous internet services outage which brought BBM down across the world.
Earlier in the week, the company says it was offering £63 worth of premium apps free for its users as an apology for the whole sorry episode.
