Last week Spotify told us that they submitted a new version of our iPhone app to Apple for approval. The approval process has been super quick and today we’re happy to announce that the update is now available in the app store.
What’s new in this version:
- Last.fm scrobbling.
- The ability to open and play Spotify links e.g. straight from your Facebook app or browser.
- Save time and space by using tracks already stored on your iPod in your playlists - there’s no need to sync those track anymore.
- Save and find your favourite tracks and albums with the Starred playlist and Star buttons (also coming to the desktop version soon!).
- Support for listening at 96 kb/s for more efficient streaming on slow connections.
- Spotify remembers when you were when you quit and starts up at the same location.
- The ability to sync your purchased Spotify tracks over Wifi.
- A new look for albums and playlists.
- The ability to set playlist as collaborative or not.
- The ability to search in playlists.
- The ability to create a new playlist from the Add to Playlist view.
- Playlists named “-” show up as separators.
- Album reviews added to album view.
- Volume slider uses system volume.
- Volume normalization option added

Many people (including myself) have come to the conclusion that Gmail, with its threaded messages, spam filtering, and vast storage space, is one of the web’s best webmail providers. In fact, we like it so much that we use it for both our personal accounts and work accounts using Google Apps. But that also poses a problem: many of us wind up having to maintain two separate Google accounts, which means we have to swap logins whenever our Gmail, Reader, or other data is stored under the other account. Fortunately, there may be an end in sight for this juggling act.
