Pandora App Updated To Version 5.8 With Google Now Card Support And A Few Bug Fixes

Oh Pandora, how I wish I could quit you. I pay the folks at Google Music for their services, and I know they work hard.

The Material fever has struck again and this time it took over the Hootsuite social application. The service, which supports both Twitter and Facebook (along with LinkedIn and Foursquare), has moved from a very Holo design to a more or less Material one that sits quite comfortably on Lollipop devices.
