Pandora apps Radio Controlled and MetroRadio working again

Radio Controlled v2

We reported a few days ago that Pandora once again changed their undocumented APIs thereby breaking Radio Controlled and MetroRadio. Luckily the "fix" was easy and both apps are back, fully working again as far as we can tell. In addition, both have some other fixes and new features on board:

  • Radio Controlled - Hitting version 2.0, this app has received many new features and changes including being more Metro-themed, Last.FM login for "scrobbling" and Driving mode. Driving Mode is perhaps the most exciting as it gives a large, finger-friendly UI for when using the app on the road. It allows you to like/dislike a song, play/stop or to skip. We found this part truly ingenious and tremendously useful. In addition, the new "more Metro" look to the app, artists-as-background and other options make this an awesome update. You can grab Radio Controlled here for free in the Marketplace.
  • MetroRadio - Now on v3.3, this update is mostly bug fixes and to address the API change from Pandora. Those fixes include getting songs, Live Tiles and MetroMP3 search service. That app you can also pick up for free in the Marketplace right here.

It's great to know that so long as Pandora remains obstinate, we have independent developers willing to give us what we want. QR codes after the break...

Pandora apps Radio Controlled and MetroRadio working again

I don't really know how the platform works, but given the (intentionally?) frequent API changes I'd suggest the developers to create a proxy between their service and Pandora, so that they don't have to resubmit the app if the APIs change.

Unfortunately neither work internationally anymore. Which is understandable. But still unfortunate. I hope an overseas developer will eventually try their hand at the API, since there's definitely a public for it.
