Pandora Version 1.1- Sounds Even Better

On July 25, 2008

We’ve been working on a review of Pandora’s iPhone application and before we could even get it posted they went and made it better.

Version 1.1 of the application offers a couple of nice improvements. 

Station Resume means that listeners who switch to a different application or take call are brought right back to the station they were on when they return to Pandora. This is key since Aple won’t allow 3rd party apps to run in the background.

The new version brings auto-complete to make searching for an artist or song that much faster and it allows users to register for Pandora right from their iPhone or iPod Touch.

All of these are great improvements but they are nothing compared to the one that stands out the most. Version 1.1 of Pandora means that

music will now be streamed over WiFi in high bitrate stereo. This is huge because, let’s face it, the nicest interface in the world is worthless is the music quality stinks. Pandora was great but the sound quality was, at best, passable before. Well, now it Rocks!

Watch for our full review in the next few days. Quick advance summary- WE LOVE PANDORA!
