    I do not know for sure, but I hear that all this update does is add more advertising functionality. So apparently nothing was changed besides the ads are better haha. Stupid.

    yea, some of the lock ups are a pain, but hey, for a service that streams me music I like and I dont have to pay for it... an issue here or there is not going to bug me too much.

    youve always gotton ads on pandora but I think what the poster was referring to was that the update just affects/changes the adds and does not provide any improvements functionality wise

    Honestly, I paid for the yearly subscription and it was well worth it. Better than satellite radio IMO. I control the content moreso.

    I have Pandora and Slacker Radio, I hardly use Pandora anymore, the music is so compressed it just sounds horrid compared to Slacker Radio, Slacker just sounds better, much better.

    I went back to an older version of Pandora, for 1 its themed and 2 I don't get ads anymore. I think some roms block ads by default (even audio ads) the only thing i see between the versions is the ads. On updated version i would get ads all the time (even 'blocking' them) older version.... no ads at all

    I am trying to figure the same thing. It said bug fixes? I was not aware of any bugs.

    Wow....I didn't even know Pandora had ads until reading this post. I listen every night for about 1-2hrs and have not heard a single ad. I do have adblocker installed, but I didn't that could control audio ads, as well.....or maybe it is a 1 in a billion chance I just haven't heard an ad yet.
    I uninstalled slacker radio bc I was getting ads and news (no matter how many times I clicked "no news") about every 5 minutes......

    Actually there were problems with Pandora 1.4 after the OTA 2.3.15 update. Songs would not load, connection issues with full signal, and songs would cut out in the middle and not play anything else.
    This was for some some, not all users. Myself included. I experienced these problems nearly everytime I used Pandora.
    This release fixed these issues since I have been using it all morning with no problems, OR ads.

    Apparently not everyone had the problems.

    Just FYI I dl the pandora update and it lock-up my phone. Had to pull the battery after that sd was damage. Not sure it is just my luck or the application had something to do with it.
