Spotify app hits Google Android app store

Third-party app doesn't allow offline playback

The Spotify app for the iPhone may still be awaiting approval from Apple, but that hasn't stopped an app for handsets running the Google Android platform being made available in the Android app store.

Droidify has been created by a third-party developer using the Spotify open API and allows users to listen to songs on the move as well as manage their own playlists from the music streaming service, using both 3G and Wi-Fi.

However, unlike Spotify's own Android app, which it demoed earlier in the year, Droidify doesn't allow offline playback.

Droidify can only be used by Spotify Premium account holders. The music streaming service is peppered with adverts, just like commercial radio, but premium account holders pay a monthly subscription of £10 to enjoy ad-free listening.
