Spotify updates its iOS app to support iPhone 5

Spotify has finally updated its iOS app to support iPhone 5

I use Spotify on a daily basis, but one thing I've been hugely disappointed in is the fact that the iPhone 5 has been out for a little over a month, and yet one of my absolute favorite music-streaming applications has gone without an update to support the iPhone 5. Each day that passed reminded me of just how much I detest non-iPhone 5 optimized applications on the iPhone 5 as those black bars on the top and bottom of the app drive me nuts. After over a month with having to deal with my first-world problem, Spotify has just launched its iPhone 5 update to its iOS app.


The update is now live on the App Store and its version notes simply say, "Spotify now looks great on iPhone 5!" After playing around with it all morning, I can tell you that it certainly does and this update is a welcome addition to my iPhone 5.
