Spotify for iOS gets its promised free, shuffle-based music streaming (updated)

Spotify free streaming on iOS

Spotify delivered free mobile music streaming to Android users a while back, and it's following up today with a corresponding update to its iOS app. iPhone listeners can now listen to artists or playlists in shuffle mode without spending cash on a Premium subscription; iPad listeners can play any song they like at any time. As long as you live in one of Spotify's supported countries, you'll want to swing by the App Store to grab the big update.

Update: Spotify says the feature arrived at the same time as it did for Android, despite version notes that suggest otherwise.
