    Perhaps a jailbroken iphone user can let us know how well it is supposed to work LOL Reply

    Yeah. I do it all the time on my jailbroken ipod 2g. Works like a charm. I have had it going for easily over 4 hours straight while playing games and browsing and it never stuttered or anything. Apple should look harder at some of the jailbroken software code I think. Reply

    As a paid user of Music Controls, which adds backgrounding and locksceen control/art integration as well as miniplayer and a host of other touches (Next/Previous Track AVRCP being among my favorites), I can honestly say: Very well. I'm going to miss NT/PT on my motorcycle A2DP kit until there is an update or new program. Reply

    I've enjoyed the numerous, albeit short, articles that Anandtech has released lately, but this is going a little too far.

    I come to Anandtech for an intelligent, in depth review of various tech subjects, not this stuff. You can do better, AT!

    Well, if you think that these kinds of short articles (i.e. blogposts) are a reason that there will be less in depth analyses in the future, your comment is valid. However, I do not see it that way. This is more like a bread crumb AT gives us, to let us feel like part of the process and release early information they deem important to the issue. I like and support these short posts. Reply

    I agree with Spartacus, its been a while since dailytech got introduced, and the news were separated. Now it seems like the dailytech is leaking into the AT site competely.

    This just in,

    where are the serious articles that kept me going for hours when i was working night shifts 6 years ago? It was slow, but certainly AT has lost some of its vibe it once had.

    Had the same problem on my iPod Touch 2G.
    When the screen dimmed it started skipping; all I did is touch the screen no skipping.

    Why is this on the front page???

    If this gets here, then why doesn't Anand report on the countless new Windows bugs that appear every day - and those have definite causes to point to as well, for crying out loud. Or some other random software?

    This isn't journalism. It's a couple of guys who haven't been getting enough sleep freaking out about their new favorite toy.

    Come on - get rid of this crap - put it on the blog where it belongs. I can't believe Anand is stooping to this type of "viral fanboyism."

    It's the first time Apple has included mutitasking in their phone OS, so I think it's worth writing about. I'm sure they'll investigate further the AT way and post back the results. Reply

    Or how about the countless Apple OS bugs for that matter.

    -that is all-
  • Exelius - Monday, June 21, 2010 - link

    C'mon guys; this is a small software bug that will likely be fixed in a patch next week. Definitely not front page material; isn't this what dailytech or twitter are for?

    Maybe Apple set the bar too high on bug-free software (and honestly; their products are generally less buggy than any other tech company I can name) but this isn't real news.

    AnandTech just sucks these days. Fluff stories and no real substance. Reply
  • piroroadkill - Tuesday, June 22, 2010 - link

    I disagree that AnandTech "sucks these days". They still have just as many in-depth articles about tech as they used to, but yes, there's a lot of this fluff inbetween those articles now, because it used to be that there wouldn't be updates on here every day, and people have short attention spans, they want to see new stuff flashing up in their face every second, because they're used to the verbal faeces shower that is the rest of the net - blogs, facebook, twitter

    I was fine with the old way really, but there's no way AnandTech has only bad articles now compared to a few years ago.

    I'm guessing they are reporting this, since it is directly effecting their battery tests for the new iPhone OS and multitasking. Reply

    sounds awfully like a slow winding memory leak somewhere...
    after a while, the entire RAM of the device is consumed by the leaking application, and kaboom goes the device
  • kring - Tuesday, June 22, 2010 - link

    I think it's an audio issue in general, I was playing angry birds for about an hour and I notice the audio breaking up and a bit of a delay scrolling back and forth across the screen. I bet there's some sort of issue with the way it handles all audio now.

    I wasn't multi tasking either. on 3GS

    I listened to pandora last night for over an hour in the background while using safari and other apps and never once got a skip.

    I have a feeling we've just reported one incident, not a trend.
  • groove11joel - Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - link

    FWIW, I'm getting tons of skipping while listening to Pandora. I never experienced it before upgrading. I'm on a 3G phone. It's seemed generally more sluggish since the upgrade as well. Reply

    I live in Japan and just received a Pandora update this morning (June 23). I suppose a follow up should be done to see if this fixed the problem. Reply
  • CZroe - Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - link

    Where were you when I seemed the be the only human alive complaining about A2DP ant playing well with WiFi on the same 3G iPhone? It was vastly improved with the 3GS but after the buffer cleared it was impossible to use, say, Pandora over WiFi and listen over A2DP. Reply
  • Drizzt321 - Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - link

    I don't think Pandora is the only background audio app. I think the KCRW streaming player does so as well. At least, that's what I keep hearing when they advertise it on the radio.

    KCRW is a NPR station in Santa Monica, CA that has a very eclectic mix of independent musicians and programming.

    That happen also to me when playing youtube video. I had to hard restart the phone iPhone 3GS. Hope for fix soon. Reply

    After my iOS4 upgrade I started seeing the exact same thing on my 3G. Pandora runs fine for a while then begins to skip or stutter. Eventually, phone becomes unresponsive. A reset brings me back to iPhone goodness until I run Pandora again for a while. Also, notice stuttering with a couple of games that I didn't see before upgrade, namely Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja. Not sure if I can tie the stutter in the games to sound yet. Reply

    I have both Pandora and Slacker. I have the problem you mention with Pandora skipping. It happens to me after listening for several minutes. I also have Slacker and it doesn't skip but will stop playing a song and skip to the next song. Both apps will "hang" eventually. I have another app where I listen to the sports radio show of Dan Patrick. It doesn't have the problem however I don't listen as long to it as I do the music apps. Reply
