blackberry now playingPandora has launched version 1.1.0 today.  In previous versions, you could only get mono AAC via your mobile connection.  Now, stereo AAC+ is available just like you find on your wi-fi connection!  You can download Pandora for free via your BlackBerry Browser at http://www.pandora.com.  Check out all the new features and bug fixes after the jump.


New Features

  • 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

  • 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:

  • 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

    Pandora Mobile does not currently count towards the 40 hour cap. And as someone who has found himself at that cap(I really DONT listen THAT much, but whatever) I would prefer the mobile version not add to my “40-Hour Listener Cap”, so I will not be upgrading.

    Unfortunately, 1.1.0 doesn’t load correctly on my Javelin 8900 (T-Mobile) blackberry.. It keeps saying connection has timed out. It worked fine on .114 version OS but not when I upgraded to .250. Also really hate the *ads* popups. Total turn off. Ill stick w/ the older version.

    Right. I’ll just move to the united states to listen to radio.
    Why is it that RIM and all their partners hate non-yanks so much??

    The whole idea of the internet is that data should be available world wide!
    If I wanna listen to local radio, I’ll buy a radio, not a computer/phone.

    BTW.
    there seems to be an iphone app for last.fm. Anyone know how to get last.fm support on the storm?
