Pandora For BlackBerry Is Now In Stereo: Upgrade Your Pandora And Enjoy!!!

July 16, 2009 | By | 2 Comments


The newest version of Pandora for BlackBerry has just been released, v1.1 which also has improved audio quality. It now streams in stereo! I have used Pandora even before I had a BlackBerry, when it was the digital radio for your PC online. Pandora lets you choose your music by your favorite band or song, customizing a radio station for you.

Some of the new features of this version are:

  • Significantly better audio quality over mobile network – now using stereo AAC+ (HE-AAC) for both Wi-Fi and mobile connections
  • Listener preference option to select “High” quality stream over mobile network or “Normal” for slower connections. Both are stereo.
  • Create Station screen now has auto-complete functionality as you type
  • Added user preference option to enable or disable station auto-start
  • Moved “Log Out” from main menu into Options screen, it now shows the currently logged-in username
  • Visual overlay when changing volume; easier to see actual volume level
  • Application will check for correct application permissions on startup, and offer to set them to appropriate values if required
  • You can now get to the “Options” screen from the menus of both the Station List screen and the
    Now Playing screen
  • Reduced download size of app by about 30-40%

Bug fixes for this version are:

  • Fixed stream resume problem on some Storm devices after being interrupted by a system alert (phone call, SMS, email, etc)
  • Fixed bug where Wi-Fi capable devices without a SIM card or data plan were not able to use Pandora over Wi-Fi
  • Fixed reports of “low volume” settings not being low enough – the lower volume settings now go as quiet as possible before being muted
  • Fixed bug where album art may not have been displayed for some tracks
  • Mute button should now properly sleep the device when holding it down

What are you waiting for? Go upgrade your Pandora on your BlackBerry OTA at the Pandora website.

    I just tested out this new version on my Tour… All I can say is wow. The audio is super clear and the app itself works great.
