Finally, Spotify is available on App Store.
As many websites have now confirmed, VG-nett and DinSide amongst others, Apple has now approved Spotify as a new app on AppStore. The app, called Spot, is ready to download, and the app itself is free. However you have to have a premium membership to use it, which costs you 16,70$/11,44 €/10 £ per mont..
The Ipod Touch and Iphone app works perfectly; search for and listen to music just like on the computer. Playing your music works almost the same way as on the Ipod Touch and Iphone's music app - and it works excellent. You can also edit and create playlists, and it works smoothly.
One of the most interresting features, is the "offline playlist". This gives you the oppertunity to play music when you are without internett connection. The "offline playlist" must of course be made when you're online, as you choose the songs you want "downloaded" to your playlist. However, to be able to synchronise the songs with your Ipod Touch or Iphone you need to be wlan connected. In my opinion, this is a somewhat unnecessary limitation.
Unlike the built-in music app, Spotify can not play music simultaneously as you use other apps, as the Iphone and Ipod Touch is not multifunctional when using apps not made by Apple themselfes.

So, is it worth the money?
Spotify is an exiting application with an enormous potential. The first version definately fulfills the expectations, and with the mobile version Spotify hopes to get more paying customers.
Personally, I will not pay to be a premium user. That is partly because I'm somewhat of a music enthusiast and have alot of music on iTunes from before, and I'm practicly broke. But I certainly understand those of you who do.
Spot is also available on Andriod-phones, and Spotify will most likely also release a Sony-Ericsson and Nokia version.
Now, I'll end this post with a totally random picture:
