iOS: Downloading Older Version of App

Local Performer

I have a 5th gen iPod that I have used Pandora on since day one. Lately, I've started having issues with Pandora suddenlink stopping and having to be restarted and sometimes the iPod itself had to he restarted. I have deleted the app and reinstalled with no change. I uninstalled the app last night and went to reinstall and I get an error message saying Pandora Music is not compatible with this iPod. I don't understand this issue. Someone please help!

GREAT, it worked for my ipad with ios 9.xx

IT WORKED.. Pop-up asked if I wanted the last compatible version, downloaded, logged in and pandora is playing again.  My original must have been corrupted somehow.

I have an IPAD Mini 2 device

and it keeps stopping when trying to play pandora.

I am reading pandora requires IOS 13 or 14 and higher.  

My device max software is 12.5.7.  How can I get a pandora version

for my iPad.  I really don't want to have to buy another device.

Ran into the same problem with older iPhones (4, 4s).

Solution: find older Pandora .ipa file and, while connected to iTunes, drag and drop onto iPhone/ipod icon. Boom! Done! It works!
