Spotify update looking to suck even more data on your iPhone

Spotify update looking to suck even more data on your iPhone
Spotify for iOS has gotten a pretty nice update which adds a new option for song streaming, although it could be pretty costly if you have a lot limit on your monthly data plan for your iPhone or iPad. The new option adds the "Extreme" song quality option, which will deliver songs to you at a very respectable 320kbps. Of course, it is likely recommended that you not use the new streaming option on mobile data, but the potential for misuse is there by adventurous users. 

This is an option that has been in existence in the desktop versions of Spotify, but this is the first time it has been seen on mobile. There has been no word as to whether or not the option will make it to other mobile platforms, but it seems likely that the update will come along. 

If you want to try out Spotify, you'll need an iOS device running iOS 4.0 or higher, and you can grab the app for free in the iTunes App Store. Of course, you'll also need a premium Spotify account in order to access mobile streaming, and that will set you back $10 per month.

Co-signed on the Grandfathered unlimited data. It's awesome. Too bad us lowly Android users will have to wait since y'know iOS always comes first! Seriosuly, enough with the Apple priority BULLs**t. Anyone who pays $10 a month for the service DESERVES 320kbs streaming, regardless of platform.
