    I was using Pandora skips for several days with no issues, today I was breezing through the skips and it locked up on me? it opens up but when I choose station nothing happens. I deleted app and tweak and rebooted phone and reinstalled and still same thing. any clue?:confused:

    if I hold down power button on top right of phone, the red slider comes up, I release that and hold home button for 6 seconds. it shuts down Pandora and then it works again. if I skip a lot of songs all at once, it freezes again. whats going on here?:confused:


    that gets it unstuck but wont allow me to change stations still ?:confused:

    Wow I've never seen this method of closing an app before. Has this alway been built into iOS? Hold down power, then when slide to power off appears let go of power and hold the home button and that kills the app? But it doesn't reboot the phone? I know, and use, the hard reset but what exactly does this method do? Tia!

    It does not reboot the phone it just kills the app. It has been in place since Apple added voice recognition on the 3GS on iOS 3. Before then you could get the same results by just holding in the home button until the app closed. Since it conflicted with the trigger for the voice recognition Apple changed it. I believe it manually kills apps just like when you manually kill them from the app switcher. Before the introduction of the app switcher I believe this was the only way to kill a misbehaving app besides a reboot.
