    Being new to BlackBerry I stumbled upon this app called "Give Me That App!". What it does is become a conduit to ask devs of your favorite/favourite app to release a version on your platform.

    So I decided to use it for Spotify. The Android version is ok so as long as you're not using it to stream music in a car where you'd like to make use of steering wheel controls for track selection.

    This is what I received back in a twitter response.

    Let's get Spotify native!-img_20141101_215633.png

    Let's get it crackin' and get Spotify developing for #BlackBerry10. It's not like they are incapable of doing so. They once maintained a version for Symbian (that still works btw).

    This is fixed in 10.3.1.

    Download Beta Zone. There's Spo2fy by Nemory. It's pretty decent.

    I would still prefer a native one.. I'm not paying for it until it goes native.. that and they finally make 'basic' artists like beatles and ac/dc in my area...

    That alpa version? I never thought to download that. It appears to have been abandoned looking at the date of it.

    You should talk to those artists, then. Spotify doesn't have them because they don't want in.

    Android version works acceptable... But I prefer a native one!
    BB10 app style in general is more ergonomic and enjoyable for use.

    Just keep contacting them through email and twitter. I'm doing the same for a couple of apps that I want on blackberry 10 devices.

    If we used the BlackBerry defense force with every app then we would have done something by now but unfortunately requests like these never gain traction in the forums.

    Hang on I've got Ringo on the phone, he won't shut up about when he left the band and they begged him to come back. When he's done waffling I'll ask him about Spotify.

    That's the thing. Who cares about every app. Just a success story here or there would suffice.

    People need to rally on just one app, Spotify for example and bombard them with requests. They would be forced to do it. Unfortunately, we get people do agree on the forum but they don't follow up with contacting devs...

    Need to think of a simple yet effective way for people to weigh in and give pressure to devs.

    To the OP I will support a native spotify.

    There is one sitting in the Beta Zone called Spo2fy, but it's been there since July and if you search the forum it sounds underdeveloped and buggy. I just grabbed the official app off of Snap.
