Just moments after Apple released iOS 4, internet radio service Pandora launched an updated iOS app which supports the operating system’s new multitasking features.

Specifically, you can now run Pandora in the background so that it will continue to play music while you’re using a different app in the foreground. In order to bring up the media playback buttons, you don’t have to close out of an app and switch back to Pandora. Just double-tap the Home button and swipe to the left to bring up on-screen media playback buttons.

My iPod touch doesn’t support multitasking, so I haven’t been able to fully test the new app. But Christina Warren at Mashable took it for a spin. You can check out her hands-on video after the break.

Pandora for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store.
