    You can adjust the audio quality to be higher from the default, just as you can on the pandora desktop site, right?

    I use it a ton on my hero, it sometimes gives me a little attitude, but I love it.

    I can't wait to use it on the EVO~

    Pandora on my Evo is a little iffy. It freezes, force closes and skips songs on its own at times.

    Ahh I hope it's not like this.

    I usually only use Pandora when I'm at the gym, and a lot of times on my Hero it gets iffy the way you describe =\

    We shall see tho

    It gets "iffy" when the connection is bad. It usually happens to me on Wi-Fi.

    My question is does it bog the phone down the way it does on my Pre?
    This was the 1st app on my Pre and I still use it in place of FM or CDs in the car.
    It just slows everything else to a crawl ):

    Does not slow the phone down. Using a 3G connection (no WiFi) it streamed perfectly (High Quality) while I recorded video or when surfing the web. Changing apps was normal with no slow down.

    I can corroborate this, it keeps freezing and I have to kill the app on my EVO. Great while it is working...but something isn't playing nice with the EVO.

    I just used it on my evo for the first time for 2 hours and never had an issue. Was your signal good? Or were you using wifi?

    Also, does anybody know if playing in high quality affects battery life at all?

    Signal is excellent...6 bars (full). It does seem that the 3G network around Indianapolis is a bit bogged down/slow though. I suppose that that could be it.

    Pandora has mostly been working for me great.
    The one issue is the widget tends to start playing when i hit play on a video.
    Almost as odd as hitting play on my bluetooth headset playing music on the sd card but not showing in the music player.

    I've had it Force close on me a few times when first opening it. Open it right back up and it's good again.

    This is not a complaint, but coming from Pandora on the Pre, this version is a little rough around the edges. All in all, it's perfectly fine, but some oddities:


    • Turned it on and it automatically skipped two songs without me even touching the phone (...that I really liked too! I'm in a full coverage area)
    • I wanted to go back and thumbs-up a song, but it wouldn't let me go back like the WebOS version does.
    • Text message alerts clunky. Causes the music to break up, sharply cut off, instead of smooth fade in and out with WebOS version.
    • No option to light screen when the song changes. Either always on or always off.

    Minor gripes. That's what updates are for, right? Besides that, it is great.
