What’s bad? Signing up for Spotify is much more difficult than I expected. Their registration form looks archaic now and can be organized better without email confirmation and annoying reCAPTCHA.

What’s good? Making a playlist on Spotify is as easy as taking candy from a baby.
What’s bad? Well, you simply can’t add a song to multiple playlists.

«You're too important to me to let go. There's just so much left to do, and so much time to live and love. I want you to be there in my life.» — Any Ex-Boyfriend
What’s good? No dark patterns were noticed. High five, Spotify!
What’s bad? Just like with your ex, if you have good reasons to break up… Break up already!
What’s more, you shouldn’t ask users to return after they’ve just unsubscribed. It’s simply ineffective and doesn't make any sense.
If you’ve decided to make your own streaming service or radio, take this into account when prototyping.
