Emma, stand-alone Spotify app, released for Fire TV & Fire TV Stick

The official Spotify app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV stick is a bit of a let down. The app is useless without a smartphone or tablet sending it music. Cue Emma for Spotify, a brand new app just released for Fire TV devices. Emma is a stand-alone Spotify client capable of streaming Spotify music without the need of smartphone or tablet. The app focuses mostly on curated and personal playlists, but can also play individual songs. As with all Spotify clients, you’ll need a premium Spotify account to use the app.

    You may want to warn Fire TV Stick users that your how to block software updates no longer works. I followed your instructions, but as of 4/2/15, my original stock software has been updated to the latest version without my knowledge or permission. I wonder if Amazon just added update domains? So now I have to look at banner ads when at the homescreen & for some reason, the Stick’s remote is incredibly laggy when using it on Kodi.

    Forgot to ask. Is there a way to turn off onscreen notification for Bluetooth controllers when they turn on/off? I don’t mind it turning on then getting notified if I’m not in the middle of watching something, but it’s really annoying for it to tell me that my Ouya controller is turned off. I can’t use my Ouya controller for Amazon PIN as well so I have to look the the Stick’s remote. The Sleep mode shortcut is nice, but doesn’t it consume the same amount of power whether it’s on or on sleep mode?
