After years of rumours, whisperings, outright denials, and instances of "well, maybe...", Spotify has finally released its iPad app to the world.
Spotify's head of mobile product, Gustav Soderstrom, said in a press briefing: "We've spent a bunch of time building this application. We think the iPad is a unique device and we want to build a unique application for it."
The app does everything that you'd expect Spotify's iPad app to do. It lets you search for and play music from Spotify's library, as well as organising it into playlists and displaying large cover artwork. The app can also sync playlists for offline playback, as well as giving access to the service's social functionality.
