Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services in the world. Through its desktop and mobile apps, users gain access to music from the artists they love, and have the ability to build and follow playlists, discover and follow new artists, and see what their friends are listening to. For a monthly subscription fee, Premium members are given access to an ad-free experience and the ability to save music to play offline.
In a world where most people now favor listening to music via a mobile device, as opposed to via an analog format, the Spotify mobile app is an indispensable companion that gives users access to (almost) any song they want to hear -- anytime, anywhere.
The Spotify app has a cutting edge design. A simple card-based design makes it easy to scroll to discover new artists and playlists. Tabbed navigation along the bottom of the screen, paired with minimalist iconography makes navigation of the app feel intuitive. Simple features improve the experience even further: users can skip a song by simply swiping left to advance to the next track. Beyond simply displaying an artist photo or album cover while a song is playing, the app will display lyrics as the song plays and display random interesting facts about the artist.
The app has a distinct and memorable design. A moody black background makes the app feel contemporary and edgy. White typography and illustrations pop against the dark background, and the lime green of Spotify’s logo is put to good use emphasizing calls-to-action and download status. The imagery on the platform is aesthetically unified, giving the app a distinct visual impact. Spotify’s mobile app truly is best in class among the streaming services, and indeed across the mobile landscape in general.
Spotify is an amazing app design in the arts & recreation and entertainment industries.
