    Hello!

    I recently released this app for Pandora Radio. I'm a long time fan of them and built this a while back for my personal use. I finally decided to open source it and release it on the app store. It will always be free with no plans of in-app purchases.

    You can download it here directly from the app store:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/milkshake/id1440379601?mt=12

    You must already have a Pandora account. If you don't, go to https://www.pandora.com and create one.

    Unfortunately, this app is restricted to USA only because Pandora only operates in the US.

    Features:
    • Minimalist UI that focuses on album art
    • Shortcuts
    • Scrubbing / searching of song (drag the bottom bar)
    • Cross fading
    • Keep player as front window
    • Easy navigation
    • Premium Pandora users will have ability to do on-demand playing and playing their playlist.
    The next release will have a "History" tab which will allow you to thumb up/down previous played songs.

    Again, this is free and open-sourced. If you find issues, feel free to file it here

    Pushed out an update to the store. You will now be able to view previously played tracks and to update your like/dislikes from it.

    Pandora Premium subscribers will be able to re-play tracks from history.
