Spotify goes back to invite only status

In the immortal words of a great (if animated) American, Home Simpson, D'oh. The Spotify application has reportedly gone back to invite only status. The app only recently hit the Android market, and if you didn't grab it whiel you could you may be too late. The app has reportedly gone back to invite only status because the company couldn't handle the glut of new registrations.

Spotify Mobile hits Android Market

Spotify have finally released their official app into the Android Market, meaning that premium subscribers to the music streaming service can now access tracks on the move.  As promised, the app delivers on-device database browsing, playlist creation and offline playback. The offline playback means that playlist contents are cached, and can be replayed while the Android device is temporarily without a 3G or WiFi signal or indeed switched to airplane mode.  A third-party app delivering catalog access was released back in August, but removed at the request of the company themselves. Spotify Mobile for Android (and the iPhone/iPod touch app, which has also been released today) is available for download now, and requires a subscription to Spotify Premium.  That costs £9.99 per month ($18); currently Spotify is only available in the UK, France, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Spain, though a US launch has been tipped for as early as the end of 2009.

Spotify streaming music mobile demo for Android [Video]

Spotify, who provide a free music streaming service, have demonstrated their new mobile client on the T-Mobile G1.  The new Android app - which is yet to be released - allows tracks to be synchronized with the handset for offline playback, meaning that even without WiFi or cellular data music can be played back. The app also supports on-device searches and custom playlists, with straightforward access to the company's huge catalog of tracks.  It's also synchronized with their existing desktop app, meaning you can search for and add a track on the desktop and have it sync for offline playback on the cellphone. As a desktop Spotify user, this is just what I've been waiting for.  The company has previously said that they'd be requiring mobile users to sign up for their premium service (which cuts out the adverts that intermittently pop up for free account holders) and frankly this looks well worth it.  No word on when we could expect to see a release; they're promising more details at Google I/O.
