I have received many emails wanting an update for the Pandora Transparent Widget that I made. So I thought I would try and make sometime for it and modify the newest version of Pandora.
Pandora Radio is the most popular music app for smartphones. Both Android users and iOS users enjoy the powerful algorithms of the Pandora Radio engine that works by you telling the app about what songs you like. And then the app will recognize the most notable features of that song. Like for example the current song it’s playing for me: Female vocals and European influences. It will then play other songs that have the same features of this one. More information can be found here on their website.
The new Pandora Transparent Widget is no different than the one I made before. To install it:
- Uninstall your current Pandora Radio app.
- Install the one you are about to download from the link below.
- Login and add the new widget to the launcher.
- That’s it.
Some people might face a problem with installing an apk that’s not from the market. This is totally normal and you still don’t need to root or unlock your phone. It is a security feature that all Android phones have. To fix that you can follow these easy steps:
- Go to your phone’s settings.
- Scroll down to “security” and click
- Then tick on the “Unknown sources” option.
You can download the Pandora Transparent Widget 4.1 from here. (outdated! look below)
If you want me to keep you updated you should subscribe to my rss feed. Although I might recommend subscribing to the Android section only if you don’t want to receive updates about my lame Las Vegas trips 😛 … It’s still a personal blog of a broke college student after all.
Feel free to submit this around the web but please give credit where credit is due. Also there are the share buttons on the left that I just installed! Cheers 🙂
