When you use an iPad or an iPhone and you want to switch an app off, all you have to do is to touch the thumbnail of that app and swipe upward. For many apps, this is enough. However, some users have been complaining that even though they did this on their Pandora app, it still continued operating in the background. This guide will help you solve this issue once and for all.
What is Pandora?
Pandora is a music streaming app. It offers automated Internet Radio service run by the Music Genome Project. It is a smart app that selects songs for the user based on his or her preferences. This is gleaned from the user’s feedback on the songs offered by the service.
Why won’t it quit?
Sometimes, when you are running Pandora on your device and you tap the Home button, it still plays music even if the home screen appears. This means the app is not yet closed. It was only minimized to the phone or tablet’s multitasking tray. The music will continue to play until you delete the app from the tray.
Steps to Turn off the Pandora app on your iPhone
If you are running the Pandora on your iPhone, all you have to do is to double click on your device’s Home button. This will make the device show the multitasking tray at the bottom of the screen. Look for the Pandora app icon and press on it. You might have to slide the bar to find the icon if you are using a lot of apps simultaneously. Make sure to press on the app icon until all the icons begin to shake. You will notice that a red circle with a white horizontal line in the middle will appear on the corner of the applications’ icons. Click on that. The app should now be closed.
Steps to Turn off Pandora app on your iPad
Switching off the Pandora app on the iPad is basically the same thing. All you have to do is to close the Pandora app while you are using it. Expose your device’s app tray by double-clicking its Home button. Touch and hold the Pandora icon. Click on the minus sign that will appear on the icon once it starts shaking.
Music is great for productivity. However, some apps use up a lot of battery. One of these apps is Pandora. If you want to switch off Pandora to conserve battery or just for some peace and quiet, follow the steps above.
