iHeartRadio, the streaming service that brings your local radio stations with you wherever you go, has updated its Android app today, and the fresh code brings some handy new features along. The most useful improvement is undoubtedly the new mini player that grants access to playback controls from both lock screens and notifications drawers, so users can pause, play and make volume adjustments without diving into the full app. Along with that bit of convenience, it also delivers local news, traffic and weather updates inside user-created custom stations, and iHeartRadio Talk show pages are accessible from within the app, too. Want the new goodies? They're waiting for you at the source below.
