Spotify iPad App Announced with Retina Support

Spotify announced (finally!) their native iPad app this week. It's been a long tie in coming as the existing app didn't make much use (or any, really) of teh enhanced space and real-estate available on the iPad. The new app also optimizes the app for use with the iPad 3's retina display. Here's a breakdown of the main features, which include:

  • Retina graphics for iPad - dazzling display, razor sharp images, richer colors
  • Even easier to browse and explore Spotify’s entire 17 million* song catalogue
  • New ‘Now Playing’ full-screen view with high-definition cover art
  • Search for playlists, users and music - all from the same view
  • Check out what's hot and find trending playlists & songs amongst your friends
  • Inbox grouped by user for easy searching
  • Gapless playback and crossfade
  • AirPlay integration

Enjoying all the world’s music instantly on your iPad has never been easier. And with the brand new full-screen view and AirPlay integration, Spotify and your iPad are perfect for each other, both as your pumped-up living room stereo and your lean, green music machine when you’re on the move.
