Spotify update brings simpler navigation + offline radio to Premium users

The Search page is also more powerful.

Way back in August of this year, Spotify rolled out a new UI for its iOS and Android apps that’s much simpler and easy to use. This was a very welcome change considering how cluttered the app used to be, but up until now, this new UI has only been available for free users. Now, Spotify’s expanding this to its Premium subscribers.

The bottom navigation bar that used to have tabs for Home, Browse, Search, Radio, and Your Library has been cut back to just Home, Search, and Your Library. The Search page has been completely revamped and is now your one-stop shop for finding all sorts of new music. At the top of the page is a ”Your top genres” section that’ll change over time based on your current listening habits.

Mophie’s new powerstation USB-C 3XL can charge your MacBook

The fabric covering lets you store it next to your laptop without scratching it.

Mophie’s new powerstation USB-C 3XL is a mobile battery charger with the juice and the power to charge the Apple MacBook. In fact, it can provide a 12-inch MacBook with up to 18 hours of battery life. That’s thanks to the 26000mAh battery and a 45W USB-C Power Delivery port. Of course, it doesn’t have to charge a MacBook. With both USB-C and USB-A ports, you can charge anything you want, including your iPhone or other mobile device.

With the abundance of ports, you’ll be able to plug in and charge the device even while it’s plugged in and charging something else. Priority+ is mophie’s way of making sure your device gets recharged before the powerstation does. It also has four LED lights that let you know the charging status and battery life.

While the powerstation 3XL is mophie’s largest portable battery pack so far, it’s one of several announced recently. You can also find the powerstation XL online f…
