Slight tangent but this only reminds me that Spotify still hasn't added offline functionality to their Apple Watch app so that Spotify Premium users can listen to downloaded music untethered from the iPhone. I'd love to be able to go for a run without carrying my phone but still accessing my Spotify music.

Continuing the tangent but this is exactly what I was reminded of. I went on my regular trip round the net to see if there’s any news of this coming any time soon- nope.

Wish they would follow Apple’s lead with Now Playing and show length of song rather than volume.

I already know how loud the music is. That’s why I have ears.

Yes, I am the one Pandora user in the world.
