It's been awhile since we've checked in with the Spotify app for iOS, and the company just so happens to have a shiny new update out today which introduces a new look and feel to the mobile app.
Spotify released version 0.7.1 of its free, universal iOS app on Tuesday, and while you'll still need a Premium account to get much use out of it beyond the free radio features, subscribers will find plenty to love.
The first thing you'll notice is an all-new app icon (although I have to confess I kind of prefer the previous version). For the iPhone, the latest update adds a new Discover experience for finding music, although the feature isn't available to everyone quite yet -- Spotify is rolling it out gradually to users. (We're seeing it at this end, but your mileage may vary.)
Also rolling out gradually is "a shiny new Now Playing view," complete with an Up Next queue for the iPhone. So what can iPhone users actually do with today's update? How about editing your playlists, a feature that we've been looking forward to for some time.
Spotify 0.7.1 also comes with a number of other improvements such as changing the order of iPhone search tabs, moving the context menu button in Playlist and Album views, fixing integration with Ford vehicles when using a language other than English and showing the actual number of tracks while in "All Tracks" view.
