Spotify iPhone app hits Twitter rumour mill

But music service still waiting for Apple approval

Despite Twitter going into rumour overdrive, Spotify is still waiting to see if an iPhone application submission will make it past the Apple's App Store approval process.

Based on reports from Swedish online news sources, in Swedish no less, rumours spread the Spotify iPhone application had been rejected, with Apple after all needing to protect future iTunes sales from the Swedish streaming music service, which offers a free option for listening to music.

Later in the afternoon Spotify responded to the stories.

"Twitter, right? We've also been reading Tweets claiming the exact opposite. Absolutely nothing in it - we've still to hear back from Apple. We ran over some technical questions with them the other week but that's as far as it's gone. We're as eager to hear back as you are!"

While we await Apple's answer the Swedish Wire reports Spotify lost of 31.8 million kronor (£2.8 million) last year, almost double that of losses made in the previous year. Despite money concerns, the company is looking to expand its global reach with Spotify services planned for the US and China.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
