How do I turn off Pandora without rebooting. When I hit the home button it goes to my main page but keeps on playing. Also my mp3s on the ipod button keep playing when I use them. On my 3g phone when I hit the home button it exited from the program but not with iphone4.

iOS 4

Double tap the home button. Press and hold the Pandora app icon at the bottom until a small x appears in the corner of it. Then tap on the x and this will close the app.

    I'm looking for an answer to this well, but bringing up the "X" and clicking will remove the app, not just close it.

    theres a giant pause button located second icon from the right if you hit that before closing the app it stops playing.. and will not use battery power

    If you click the icon on the regular icon position, yeah, you delete the app from the phone. But that is not what the other poster referred to.

    You double click the home button and at the bottom of the screen will be a list of all "running" programs (not all of these are actually doing anything, but are normally still in memory). To remove an app from this so it is not running at all or taking up operating memory, you hold your finger on it until they jiggle and an X appears. Tap the X for each one you want removed from "running". This leaves the app on your phone.

    If you get a message that says you are going to delete the app, you are in the wrong place!

    I'm surprised that no one here or in other iPhone forums have explained how to do shut off Pandora on the iPhone 4.  The answers above dance around the technique but fail to give the correct answer. 

     

    First, tap the home button once (yes, once), to display the screen with all your apps icons.  This is critical.  The Pandora application is not filling the screen, the screen has all your app icons, as usual.  Next, tap the home button twice (yes, twice).  The screen will change, and icons for running apps will appear at the bottom of screen.  Tap and hold the Pandora icon until the icons begin to shake.  A small red button will appear in upper-left corner of each app icon.  Tap the red button for Pandora.  Pandora will shut down.  Simple, eh?

    The second post of this thread (Mr. C UK) already explained it in the exact same manner as you.  In fact, discussion of this method is what most of the thread is about.

    I hope my post clarifies how to do this.  I will be interested to learn if other people can follow the second post and succeed.

    Why exactly did you feel the need to dig up a thread that is almost a year old to post the EXACT SAME THING as another user?

     

    Your posting serves absolutely no purpose.

    Thank you Paul_Pittsburgh for your detailed explaination. The previous comments led me to delete the app all together, thanks to YOU I was able to shut down various apps without deleting them. I am new to the iPhone and found your comment the most helpful!

    I am assuming you just want to stop the music.

     

    If so, then I would just go to the Pandora app and hit the pause button.

     

    Or, if I was in another app (or on one of the navigation screens),

     

    1 - double click the Home button

    2 - swipe the multi tasking bar to the right and hit the pause button

     

    That way when you want to listen again you just unpause the app instead of having to start it again.

    marlatucson, read the rest of the thread.  After you've read it, you'll understand why paul_pittsburgh "suggestion" is pointless.
