Spotify’s BlackBerry app exited beta and was made freely available to a selection of compatible handsets back in December, but it still wasn’t available in BlackBerry’s official app store. Until now that is.

The app was first announced back in October but was available only as a preview for users who wanted to give it an early try and provide feedback. When it was launched properly just before Christmas, users had to direct the browser on their phone to m.spotify.com and follow the installation instructions.

However, as with Spotify on other mobile operating systems, you can now access the app directly from the manufacturer’s official store, in this case BlackBerry App World.

With 2.5 stars out of a possible 5 so far, it’s not fairing terribly well. But now at least it will gain more exposure and perhaps get a bigger uptake from the BlackBerry community.
