Great news, music fans: Spotify, the popular music-streaming iOS app, has been updated for Apple's iOS 7. As such, users of the free application can enjoy a user interface that has been optimized for the seventh iteration of Apple's mobile OS. Changes include the song progress bar and icon, the Now Playing music controls, and the banner notification-style interface that appears at the bottom of the app, and allows users to easily pause or play a track. In addition, iOS 6-style icons have been removed from the application, too, and as such Spotify now looks much better running under iOS 7. Spotify explains in the app's release notes:
As before, Spotify can be downloaded in the App Store free of charge, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app requires a paid Spotify Premium subscription, however.
