Bad USB cable preventing Aps from working

Anyone else have problems using streaming apps like pandora with off brand cables? I've been frustrated that Spotify and pandora were not working with my new X1 w/ ultimate package. Turns out it was my monoprice lightening cable. The connected app worked ok, but I guess the cable could not handle the bandwith needed for the streaming apps. Heck, even the Mlap timer would quit on me. Anyway, thought I would post this here for anyone else having problems.

I had similar issues with what I thought was premium cable. Problems went away with Apple OEM cable.

Same for me- switching to the apple oem cable did the trick. I'm just relieved I got it to work, frankly. I was afraid the apps were crap and everyone else was just used to them sucking by now.
