On Tuesday, Spotify rolled out its app for the Kindle Fire (available for free on Amazon). Initial reactions to the music streaming app were exuberant as people thought Spotify completed their Kindle Fire. But as time wore on, the mood started to change a bit and the reactions went from “love” to “eh… it’s ok.” The Spotify app for Kindle Fire is available as free download in the Amazon App Store which will give you the standard free access to all of the radio stations. But for $9.99, you can upgrade to the premium version and get access to your content on your desktop such as streaming, playlists, social features, artist details, etc…
Let’s listen in now on what some of the 23 users who have posted reactions are saying (23 users as of this writing):
(1 star rating) - The biggest problem is that while it’s playing, the wireless goes out, and I have to keep waking up the kindle’s screen to keep everything playing. I don’t have this problem with Pandora, on the same wireless network. Fix that, and it’s worth two stars.
(5 star rating) - I love Spotify. The only downside is that you can only run it on one device at a time. My boys like to listen to music on their tablets with their headsets and they can’t both be logged into my Spotify account at the same time.
(3 star rating) - I use last.Fm and have been disappointed that I could not scrobble from Amazon’s mp3 player on my Kindle Fire. I guess this app is no different even though there’s a place in the settings to supply my last.Fm login information. I’m only using the radio option. Would I have to pay for the premium option to get it to scrobble? I would rate it higher if I could scrobble to work.
(5 star rating) - I love this app!! I get to jam to my own tune anywhere I go and am always having a blast!
You can view all of the ratings (23 thus far) on Spotify’s app page on Amazon. But as you can see, users up to this point are relatively happy with the app with a 3.5 star rating overall. So have you checked out the Spotify app on your Kindle Fire yet? If so, let us know what you think in the comments.
