    No it shouldn't. As long as it is not playing in the background you should be fine.

    Any application that is running will use the battery and it is an online streaming player type, so IMO it affects the battery life.

    Not if you close it out on your multitask bar so that its not running in the background.

    Your login information is saved as data on your phone that gets loaded when the app starts.

    Nope. Time to read up again on how multitasking works. If Pandora is playing it it will.

    It can affect battery life but it can't effect battery life.

    Pandora will use battery if it is running. Regardless if its in the foreground or the background.

    If pandora is not actively running, but is not closed and resides in the background still, it should be be using any battery life.

    What part are you lost on?

    If you're not listening to Pandora, it is not using your battery. Even if its in a frozen state (background).

    If you are listening to Pandora, it is using your battery charge.

    Clear it up for you? :)

    if you close out the app or it's not playing music it's not effecting the battery no reason to sign out.
