    I am a Spotify subscriber and have had Spotify side loaded for quite some time on my Z10 and now my Z30. The app works great with all the features working beautifully including the ability to cache songs offline.

    One thing I did notice is that this app is really slooowww and sluggish when I compare it with the other Android apps I have installed (ie. Netflix, Hulu Plus, Yamaha AV Contoller, etc). I mean it takes ages to display the screen upon launch and at least a few seconds to update the UI after I click on something. Once the streaming starts it's great but the sluggish UI is really a problem.

    Anyone else experience this with the Spotify App? Perhaps someone has a solution for this?

    On my Z30, it's a bit sluggish too. It works and does the job, but it's definitely slower than other Android apps.

    I guess we have three choices:

    1) Live with it.
    2) Hope they release an updated version that runs better, or
    3) Keep pestering them to make a BlackBerry 10 Native app!

    Same issues on my Q10. Thought it was the Amazon app but unfortunately the Google Play app wasn't much better.

    Just got my hands on a new device with 10.3 on it. Wow, Spotify (so far) is running silky smooth. If this is how it continues then we are very good shape! I'll post an update if the performance degrades but so far so good.

    +1 Yes Sir it runs like butter on my Z30 With 10.3! To top it off it only slows down when I'm gaming and running it in the backround even then it runs like a champ. Really sweet because my berry rocks hard!

    Shame Bluetooth Media controls still don't work with Spotify on the 10.3 OS leak.

    Agree. Its a shame but for me it was barely working on 10.2 so this is huge step.
