    So they don’t have to fork over commission of course.

    Yes...I suppose if the app came via the App Store then subscriptions would have to be processed via the App Store.

    Is this true? I believe it is only if signups/purchases were allowed *in app.* For instance, the Kindle and Amazon apps for the phone won't allow you to buy books, instead directing you to the website to buy them.

    Their app likely doesn't follow Apples restrictions for software in the app store.

    It can be downloaded from Spotify's website though, is this not good enough?

    I doubt they do. That’s my point.
