Latest AppRadio App Update Allows Custom Backgrounds [Video]

Pioneer's own AppRadio app has been updated to version 1.8.1 (iOS). This update includes one feature that was perhaps missed the most (apart from the glitch fixes). The app now allows you to use your own custom background on the AppRadio. Previously this couldn't be done directly from the device.

Once you launch the app on the iPhone it gives you an option of selecting a wallpaper. From here you can access your photos and albums on your iPhone to select the desired image. Another addition to the app is Sharing Settings. You can now configure your Twitter and Facebook accounts within the app.

You can download the latest version of the AppRadio app for your iPhone from the App Store today.

One of our readers who calls himself 'Porthos Musketeer' brought this to our notice. He has also sent us a YouTube video he made showing the custom background. The picture above is also from him. Thanks Mr. Musketeer!

Note: The Android version of the App was also updated on September 18, 2012 to version 1.1.1. I'm not sure if custom backgrounds are allowed on Android though. If any of our Android users have any input on this please feel free to leave a comment below. The Android version of the AppRadio app can be found here.
