Spotify slammed for 'bad' UI

The adjustments to Spotify's iPhone app ditched word-based buttons in favor of picture-based ones - including a new inexperienced button that combines the play and shuffle play icon.
A redesigned Action row houses actions - such as 'like,' 'play,' and 'download' - grouped in the center part of the app. The motion bar also houses a brand new downloading feature to listen without WiFi for premium customers, which appears loads just like the one that the app has been using for podcasts.
