A easy tweak to Spotify's iOS app makes navigation lots simpler
Spotify is the main streaming music service — although its app design has all the time left one thing to be desired. Issues have improved within the final yr or two, however by and enormous its apps aren’t straightforward to navigate. Nevertheless, a seemingly easy UI replace that rolled out to the iOS app in the present day truly makes issues lots simpler. The app’s important navigation buttons — residence, browse, search, radio and library — have all been moved from a slide-out menu on the left to the underside of the app’s interface. It now resembles Apple Music and a number of different iOS apps.

The menu that slide out from the left was buried away, inaccessible until you hit the “again” button to retrace your steps. It was irritating that the aspect menu wasn’t universally accessible, however this replace modifications all of that.
That does not imply Spotify is not nonetheless a somewhat complicated app — “house,” “browse” and “uncover” all have loads of duplicate content material, for instance — however this makes issues a bit cleaner for positive. And a sophisticated consumer expertise is nearly par for the course nowadays. Simply ask anybody who’s hung out with Apple Music.
