Spotify finally updates iOS application Spotify has given iOS device owners a nice overhaul for their favorite app.
Version 0.6 brings most of the updates Android users have had over the past few months, including the "always-on" Now Playing bottom bar and the navigation sidebar.

Additionally, a few existing bugs have been fixed, such as the lock screen errors.

Full release list:

New: Shiny new interface. You can navigate around the app with a new sidebar. Check it out by swiping left-to-right, or by pressing the ≣ button in the top left of the app.
New: Now Playing bar. You'll always see what you're listening to along the bottom of Spotify. To switch tracks, just swipe along it. Tap or drag to see more information about the current track. Tap the cover art in the extended view to use AirPlay, and disable/enable shuffle and repeat.
New: Track menu. Tap the ... button on any track to see a redesigned context menu.
Fixed: "Track only available online" issues. This would sometimes appear after start-up, or when you'd been offline for a little while. Not any more.
Fixed: Lock screen will now always display the correct track.
Fixed: Shuffle now switches off after you've used "Shuffle Play" on an album or playlist.
