Pandora was updated today so I thought I should update the Pandora transparent widget as well. This update from Pandora finally brings the lock screen controls that we have been waiting for. And of course I have also already done my part of modifying the apk file and creating an install-able Pandora transparent widget.
Nothing too special about this update of Pandora except the lock screen controls. Also the interface has been slightly updated to include a progress bar with seconds remaining of the song. And the buttons for skips and thumps up and down are still the same.
As a reminder, this modification has been done only to the interface of the widget. The code hasn’t been touched and the functionality of the app is still exactly the same.
I hope I don’t disappoint you when I say that if you are looking for unlimited skips, you will not find it here. I personally pay for Pandora One now and I’m really happy with the service and recommend you to do so also. After all, if you use it for more than a few songs a day, that’s like paying a few cents for a few songs.
To Install this apk, do the following:
- Uninstall the current original Pandora from your Android phone.
- Download the Pandora transparent widget apk that I made and install it.
- Sign-in and you’re set!
Note: If you get a massage saying that you can’t install the transparent widget, do the following:
Go to Android Settings.
Enter the Security menu.
Put a check at Unknown Sources so that Android will be ok installing apk files from sources other than Android Market.
