Pandora adds station recommendations to iOS, Android app
Pandora has updated its iOS and Android apps to offer its users recommendations for new stations based on artists the user listens to. The Personalized Station Recommendations will show up to six suggestions based on current listening preferences and previous likes and dislikes, claims the Pandora blog, with future station suggestions to be further improved the more music the user listens to. Users can find the recommendations when they create a new station, or if they scroll to the bottom of their station list.
Freesat releases satellite companion app for iOS
Free-to-air British satellite television provider Freesat has launched a companion app for iOS. In a similar manner to competitor Sky's mobile offering, Pocket-Lint reports that the Freesat App allows users to search through the TV guide, select items for recording, and to also search for shows archived on on-demand services operated by the major UK broadcasters, for viewing through the set-top box itself. It is not known if an Android version of the app is in development.
