    For some reason, I can't get Spotify to play in the background? I'm using Backgrounder for it but it still cuts off when I leave the app after enabling the background. It's driving me bonkers ...

    Running iPhone4 on 5.0.1

    TIA,
    Scarlet

    P.S. I searched the forums first but didn't find the answer .

    try disabling backgrounder completely from Spotify?

    Spotify natively should be playing after you leave the app until you pause it or the playlist ends

    Okay! Deleted Backgrounder completely. I really don't even use it since it became more or less part of the ios. Spotify now backgrounding flawlessly. Also installed the NowListening tweak you suggested and LOVING it!
    I never really got into Pandora. Should I check it out? Been using Spotify since it was Beta (it started in Sweden where I live). If I do try Pandors I'll have to go via VPN to make it work ... Any other radio streaming apps I should try?

    Thanks for the suggestions and help .

    ahhh, Pandora is not available for you guys over there.. personally Pandora is all i use so i am not sure about other streaming apps

    i love Spotify. i have been using a combination of Pandora and Spotify heavily. when listening to Pandora i will hear a song i used to like or something new, then hop onto Spotify and sync that song and or the whole album. this is why i feel the premium service is worth the $

    my Spotify playlists are growing-and-growing!

    I downloaded Tunein so will try that one in the meantime. There is a vpn service I was thinking about signing up for, but would only really use it for Pandora so I don't know if it's worth the cost. We already have American DirecTV via a Slingbox service so don't need the vpn for that either ... I'm feeling rather geeky right now with all my gadgetry .

    I <3 Spotify. So worth the premium cost to get the offline syncing .

    Thanks for your inputs!

    the hacker inside me wonders where exactly Spotify stores their synced music. but i'm sure it's not as easy as finding the containing file-drag & drop. hmmm..
