Pianobar (Pandora radio) Remote Control

I'm writing an (ad-free and free) Android app to remotely control pianobar (unofficial Pandora client, see this website) running on a Linux computer. Perfect if you, like me, have a headless Linux music server and like to listen to Pandora. Pianobar is easy to set up with a proxy server so you can access Pandora from anywhere in the world.

The app is available on Google Play and you can find the setup instructions at Pianobar (Pandora) Remote Control. Please let me know if you find any bugs or have any problems/suggestions/comments!

Good luck with the

Good luck with the app. 

Funny though, I spent yesterday afternoon chastising my sister because I found she was listening to Pandora through the laptop sourced system I recently put together for her. She admitted that the 24/192 kHz flac version of Lee Morgan's Sidewinder playing at the time sounded great,  but lossy compressed streaming must be like any other ugly addiction for those affected.

(I'm really not an audio snob, I just like to act like one, haha)

Thanks! :) I do agree that

Thanks! :)

I do agree that high def flacs sound better, but for background listening the 192kbit MP3 (with Pandora One) is perfectly fine for me. It's also a great way to discover new music and not having to think about what exactly you want to listen to and add music to a playlist suits me ;)
