The internet music application everyone loves, Spotify, has released an app for Symbian phones . The new app was created in conjunction with UI design firm The Astonishing Tribe (TAT). The technology behind the new app has been used to produce a number of user interfaces across the mobile and desktop spaces. The Symbian platform is the most widely used mobile OS in the world at this time, so this entry was certainly overdue.
The release of this app means that the 250 million users of S60 devices running 9.2 or later can enjoy the Spotify service. “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Spotify to help realize their visions for a mobile version that can now reach hundreds of millions of music lovers that use Symbian based phones,” said Charlotta Falvin, CEO of TAT. Regardless of your feelings about Symbian, that’s more than can be said for US music lovers. Spotify is still only available in Europe.
