Pandora

Hey I just updated Pandora on my smartphone and now I just noticed MFT displays both song and artist on the screen. Question is; was this a result of the latest MFT update or does Pandora get the credit?

Outstanding!!! My Pandora updated on its own today but early this morning it didn't show anything. Maybe both parties get credit.

Wow! The lack of Pandora info was actually a show stopper for a guy at work who's still shopping for a car. I'll try it out on my car and display it to him when I go back to work. Woo Hoo!

One quirk or caveat I noticed..... the screen has to be on for the next song to show up. If you have pandora in the background and/or the screen is off, the song that was showing before you minimized it/turned off the screen will show indefinitely. The next and pause buttons still work with the screen off, though. It just doesn't update the text on the screen until pandora is brought up on the screen again.

Yeah, noticed the same behavior but better than it was. Maybe see if we can find a work-around for this minor oversight.
