Saavn’s iOS 7 Update

Saavn’s iOS 7 Update


Saavn has been one of the most popular music streaming services targeted towards the Indian market and arguably, the only one with commendable design aesthetics. When iOS 6 was still around, Saavn’s iPhone app was far better than what the other services were offering. Yesterday, Saavn’s app received a major 3.0 update that completely overhauls the design, UX and also introduces a few nifty features. The app has undergone a complete makeover and now sports a very iOS 7 inspired look at feel. The iPad version of this Universal app is no longer just a blown up iPhone UI and instead now offers a native UI, just like the iPhone. Saavn’s design team has done a remarkable job with this update.

Saavn is available as a Universal app Free on the App Store and has ads. To disable the ads, you can chose from two kinds of subscriptions — Saavn Lite for $1.99/m or Saavn Pro for $3.99/m and a 30-day free trial is available. It’s a shame that there’s an ugly, unskippable, pixelated mess of an ad that plays right as you launch the app for the first time.
