A few days ago, the Swedish startup announced video ads on the platform and said it will be giving 30 minutes’ worth of uninterrupted music to anyone who sits through occasional 15-30 second video ads.

The service counts forty million users, ten million of which are paying ten bucks per month for high-quality ad-free streaming on desktop and mobile.
The 35.4-megabyte download is compatible with any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad supported by iOS 6.0 or later.
