No Pandora??!!

I am disappointed to see that Pandora is not on the new HD +. Is this going to be addressed? A lot of customers love listening to Pandora, other than Angry Birds and Words With Friends it's the APP I get the most questions on.

Re: No Pandora??!!

Let me put in my vote for getting Pandora on the HD series of devices ASAP.  With the bluetooth support for external speakers it's an almost must have.

 

Thanks.

Re: No Pandora??!!

You should contact Pandora directly. It's up to them to make a version of their app that supports HD and HD+.

Also there's an App called RDIO that might be worth trying.

fyi, for those who've set up the debugging, you can pull Pandora from your NC (only tested from the NC, possibly NT also) and install it on the HD+.  The better speaker is very nice with Pandora.

@Dawn...

 

I can't help you with the debugging. I don't have my HD yet.

NC is Nook Color and NT is Nook Tablet.

Re: No Pandora??!!

NC and NT are indeed nook color and tablet respectively. 

 

Getting debugging set up is pretty challenging;  the BN guide for doing it is here.  Read it end to end without trying to follow it once and if you think it's something you can do, then go through step by step.  It really does have to be done just so for these devices, and it took me quite a bit longer than usual to finish sounding it out.

From what I'm hearing, there may be a way of assembling an sd card that can be used to install software without following the entire guide, and I hope that works out.  Those cards are incredibly helpful for the nook color and nook touch devices. 

 

ETA on those cards?  Hard to say.  Weeks with luck and interest.

Re: No Pandora??!!

Bn included pandora in the first sw release, and the critical update removes it! I did a hard reset and re- image and pulled a copy of the apps before the update came through - and pandora was on board. What's interesting is that this version displays pop up ads if it is in the foreground, and i think that' s why bn yanked it, they didn't want to hear the complaints about it. My guess is that the right version will be available soon.

I suppose that could mean a paid ad free or limited hours version and a free version with ads is coming, like is common with other Android apps.

No Pandora on new Nook HD+???

I too was very upset when I upgraded to the Nook HD+ and discovered there was no Pandora app.  So I was surprised when I turned mine on today and discovered that Pandora was uploaded to my apps. Yeh!! I am so happy I didn't return it which I was contemplating.

 

So let me know if anyone also got the app uploaded to your Nook HD+?

Re: No Pandora on new Nook HD+???

Ellie, if you go into device information, what softrware version are you on?  

 

I'm unable to find Pandora in the BN store, and wonder if perhaps your device reverted to the software it was shipped with somehow?

Re: No Pandora on new Nook HD+???

Pandora uploaded itself to my apps also.  I'm running software version 2.0.2
