Pandora has just released a huge new update to their iOS app. Version 4.0 adds a bunch of social, music information, and music discovery features. Looks like an amazing update. It’s been a while since I’ve used Pandora, this looks like a reason to give it another try.

• Share your latest discoveries with friends on Pandora, Facebook, and Twitter

• Full lyrics for the songs we play
• Artist biographies and discographies
• Detailed track features from the Music Genome Project
• Find even more music you’ll love by adding variety to your stations
• Enjoy constantly updated and expertly curated genre stations

… and other great updates:

• Timer added to the track progress indicator – drag the player controls up to reveal the timer
