Fixes issues with BMWs, Minis
Music service Pandora has posted a new version of the Pandora Radio iOS app, v3.1.15. The update makes several significant changes, for instance allowing upgrades to the Pandora One tier from within the Settings tab. This costs $36 a year, but strips out audio and visual ads from the app as well as the web player.
The v3.1.15 code also makes some iOS 5 related changes, for example showing track art and metadata on a device's lock screen; when using car accessories, the app will now continue playing while in the background. Another car-related improvement involves integration with BMW Apps or Mini Connected, which should be fixed. Pandora users must, however, keep devices unlocked while connected to either platform.
The Pandora app is a free download, and works on any device running iOS 3.0 or later.
