If I'v understood correctly, you want a widget to contol Spotify from the homescreens?
Spotify has its own widget. It's installed automatically when you install Spotify.

Spotify includes a widget when you download the app.

Are you using the new beta version of the Spotify App that supports ICS? If so, could you please give a feedback? I would like to use Spotify, but I refuse to pay for a service that is only in beta right now...

It's excellent, but still doesn't have playlist folders.
You can download it here.
It includes "extreme" quality streaming/saving (for offline access). It's much neater to use. It's now just as good (albeit quite simple) as an ordinary music player on Android.

Get a trial and see if you like it?

Also, relevant to this thread, it doesn't seem to have come with a widget!

Well, I have been using Spotify Premium on my Symbian device. I cancelled my subscription because I read about the incompatibility with ICS. But this seems to be fixed now, so I will consider subscribing once again.

Thx for your answer! :)

The new ics version of spotify works with the lockscreen widget, only just noticed, which makes me think its only just started working.
