Now that switched over to team Rdio, I almost forgot Pandora existed. Still the best option for those that want to stream personalized music stations of the go, Pandora for Android is now seeing a new update in the Play Store. The latest version finally brings about lockscreen controls, a welcome addition indeed. Here’s what’s new in this version:
- Lock screen controls for devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and later
- Added elapsed and remaining timestamps to the track progress indicator
- Reduced startup time
- Bug fixes and enhancements
Unfortunately, it looks like the Pandora devs still manged to leave out notification controls, a standard in music apps these days. Oh, and for the HOLOYOLO crowd, sadly, the app still looks like a mishmash of modern Android UI, and iOS. More updates, please.
