If you want to discover new music with your iPhone or iPad on Spotify, has you covered. The company, formerly known as ShareMyPlaylists, has updated its iOS app today with a number of new features including custom artwork and geo-tagged mixes.

Six months in the making, the app separates its library of over 145,000 playlists with a number of categories including Most Played, Latest and Moods. They’re all found in the sidebar, accessible from the icon in the top left-hand corner of the screen, and utilize a clean grid interface for navigation.

Tapping once on the cover art will reveal the tracklisting for each playlist, with a secondary tap loading up the mix within the app. As with the regular Spotify app, you’ll need a Premium subscription to actually listen to these mixes on your iPhone or iPad.

Today’s update adds custom artwork to the app for the very first time and there’s also a new ‘Pin’ feature which gives users the ability to see geo-tagged playlists in the surrounding area. It’s an unusual feature, with the idea being that you’ll leave a curated mix in the gym or park for another Spotify user to uncover.
