I cancelled XM radio because Pandora plays better music and I would rather listen to the ads on Pandora than the obnoxious DJ's on XM who don't know when to shut up. They talk more than listening to ads. Keep up the good work Pandora!

It seems every time I open another app no matter what it is, pandora will drop out, pause, or just stop working. I love pandora but this is really rather annoying I mean I get it for ones that use a speaker but it does when I open my safari or even my calculator!!!! Fix this bug please!!!!!!!

Where can I find the English version - all non music content is in a foreign language and I have no idea what is interrupting my music such as a severe weather announcement, missing child, missing senior, terror attack, etc. please make language specific Apps if you can going to continue with the foreign language as I can no longer use your service if you do not.

Slight problem
by hummenah on 2017/02/18 15:29
I love pandora and listen to it on my way to school. I turn it off when I get to class, I do the swipey thing and everything. But when I get to class, I take a sneak peak at my phone and pandora is still on and it's playing with the volume all the way up. It happened in my French class and my earbuds were not plugged into my phone. I got in a little bit of trouble for that.
Appreciated Warnings
by A Happy Fellow on 2017/02/18 15:29
I don't care for trashy "adult" content. My settings reflect that. Today, while searching for Looney Tunes, of Warner Bros. & Bugs Bunny fame, I picked a likely sounding suggestion and received a warning regarding the trashy content of the choice. I'm quite grateful for that.

by Godlessassassin69 on 2017/02/18 14:34
I love Pandora , they have everything I look for in a music station. The only tweak I would make is having my prime artists work more dominate on their station. For example, I went over an hour without hearing Amy Lee's angelic voice on my Evenescence station which is a crime lol!

Pandora plus
by Mmk01 on 2017/02/18 14:05
Good for when you're on wifi. Offline needs some work. I use it during my 8 hour shift and to listen to the same 6 songs 4 times a day with no random shuffle gets pretty boring fast. I'm tired of pitbull, flo-rida and t-pain. If I listen to a station for so many hours shuffle through some of the content. Also why does it have to open to get it to alarm with music?
Love it but one thing.
by Wolffette02 on 2017/02/18 14:05
I love this app. I'm on it 24/7 cause I am addicted to music and the one thing I'm annoyed by is the "get premium" or "upgrade for more skips" I don't care about that I just want to listen to my music without adds that will keep popping up. But besides that it's really good.
Keeps reloading while playing thru Bluetooth in 2014 Honda Odyssey
by hikingoutwest on 2017/02/18 14:03
Worked fine until last upgrade. Now it plays for about 5 min and then stops. Honda display says pandora is loading and after a minute it starts playing again. This cycle then repeats itself. Present version is unusable in the odyssey
Fix needed
by Brubasteve on 2017/02/18 13:48
iPhone. When I forget to turn on my wifi and access Pandora, I get an error message that will never clear unless I turn my phone off and back on. And when I have my wifi on Pandora takes forever to load. I like the service, but this stuff needs fixed or I'll just listen to TuneIn.

I have been an avid Pandora fan for years but lately there is a commercial between every song! I will not pay for this app, there was a moment that I thought about it. The surge in commercials solidified my choice, I might even drop Pandora all together :/

Won't work with car after last update.
by Jjtrannel on 2017/02/18 02:51
Pandora will connect to my car (Mazda 6) and play one song then it crashes as the next song starts and has to reconnect before crashing out again after each song. Bye Bye Pandora this is a deal breaker. I was only using this because it worked seamlessly with my car. Since it doesn't work at all now. I am going full time with Google music. By the way it no longer responds to the commands from the lock screen (iPhone 6), and I can no longer see the album artwork at full screen. I consider the app ruined with these changes. Since I can't give Zero stars I begrudgingly give you 1......

by WelcometoMarz on 2017/02/18 01:41
You can't go wrong with pandora one. The minimal fee is worth every penny. If you're someone like me who enjoys all types of music or needs music to get through some or all of your day, don't think twice. I used to close out of the app and go back in constantly to rid myself of the ads but that got annoying and I just gave in for the paid version. I don't regret my purchase at all.

by Ulovegames on 2017/02/18 01:23
The constant flow of ads are getting old. Especially with the new pandora plus they try to annoy you so you pay for the upgrade. The music stays where it's at and goes back to it when you come back to it. May sound good but most times my mood has changed since the last time I listened to that song, and its time to move on.
Favorite song app
by Don't even rate on 2014/06/28 21:00
I personally think most the people who give this app bad reviews have ZERO patience and there reasons to why it's bad are stupid. They don't think about the millions of people who use this and how many people use it at one time. Nothing is perfect. So of course there will always be things that can "make it better" but for the adds they are annoying but at the same time I don't really care because I don't sit there and stare at the screen and enjoying the picture that is there! I have a life!! If I'm listening to pandora I'm 100% of the time doing something else on my phone. Or I'm laying down. Like right now I'm doing both! The only time my music or anyone else that I knows music stops it's because it asks if you are still listening. Which is a good reason to stop the music. I always get notifications saying there are more songs on a station. I have never had it tell me there are none. I think this is an app that I would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone and I would give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! It's a great app and I have had minimum complaints. None that affect me or bother me enough to want to change anything. There are ads but I never have the app open when listening. Which is amazing that I can do other things and myosin still play. Yes I would like to be able to go back a certain amount of songs. But I don't skip a song by accident enough for it to bother me. Plus the so g usually comes back on again soon which I really like!!
FIX THE BLANK ALBUM COVER!!!
by Maggie 63!:93!384& on 2016/06/20 01:12
I love Pandora. Hands down. I love being able to listen to music that I don't actually own and it really helps me find out other music that I love. I never would've known that I absolutely love piano music if it wasn't for Pandora. But I do have a few complaints. Mainly the changed the blank album cover to the weird blue and white record/CD thing which I don't like. It used to be this like gray scale thing which I really liked and it didn't show up on my lock screen and now that stupid record does. Boo Pandora. Boo you. Also every once in a while I like a new song. Because really I only listen to one stations and I have literally perfected it. But every once in a while I do thumb up a new song and then instantly I get a slew of songs from that genre. I don't like that at all. I DO NOT need to listen to eight rap songs in a row. Just because I like one rap song does not mean I want to listen to every rap song in existence. The same happens with country music and I want it to stop. Through in a rap song here and there. But what I would really like is if the app would recognize the songs that I never skip and play them more often. There are definitely songs that I thumbed up because they were hip and I liked them for a spell but now I might want to listen to them now and again. I want Pandora to play the songs I love more than the songs I'm cool with. But other than that I put my seal of approval on this app.
Feeling a little angry here....
by DianaC112001 on 2016/03/03 13:05
For people with older devices might be having a more inconvenient experience (especially if subscribed from the device with the Pandora One loading screen) My mom and brother normally have the Pandora loading screen without ads due to subscription from another device. They both have iPad 2s and don't seem to have an issue at all. On the other hand, Pandora One was subscribed from my iPad 2 and has some issues that anger me. One, sometimes Pandora will hang so badly that I would have to force quit it to get it to work. If I tap my finger back into the app when I try to force quit it, the app will not respond no matter what you do to try to get out of it that I have to turn off my iPad and get it back in the plug to get it to respond. Two, when Pandora gets stuck and you can force quit it, it cuts you off your music stating that there are no tracks available on that particular station. No matter what station you go to after that point, same statement. Three, when you are on a station with your favorite song on and tune in to another station and tune back to the station with your favorite song, it will skip on to the next track you don't really like. I've had to delete and reinstall Pandora once since iOS 9 came out. I hope that you could either fix these issues or make a compatibility list of devices that could run Pandora well without issues interrupting listeners' experience (with the Pandora One subscription).
My REAL Review
by MateFeedKillRepeat on 2008/09/02 21:53
I wrote a comment before but now I want to give this App the review it deserves: Pros: 1. For iPhone users: This app works anywhere you have cell signal 2. For iPod Touch users: Works anywhere you have internet 3. Can have as many stations as you want 4. Can group them in alphabetical order to make stations easy to find 5. No more listening to the artists you don't like over and over. YOU pick what you listen to! 6. It work seamlessly with your account on the Pandora website. If you add a new station on here it shows up there too. 7. It takes up barely any space on your iPod/iPhone 8. You get it all for FREE!!!! Cons: 1. Can't do anything else why radio is playing except put it to sleep 2. You can't recieve incomming calls on the iPhone while it's playing or call other people 3. Only six skips per hour Overall: This App is the supreme. The best in the whole App Store. If you could only download one App onto your iPod/iPhone I would pick this one. It's great to be able to pick certain artists to listen to instead of listening to whatevers on. At last I can control my own radio! The only thing that really bugs my at all about this App is that you can only skip six times per hours. It would be nice it they made a paid version with unlimited skips. But that's not really a big problem. I really suggest you get this App right now because until you do there will be a gapping Pandora sized hole in your heart.
Takes place of iTunes, amazing app
by Felicia B ;) on 2015/08/26 13:48
I personally love this app. For me, I use it instead of iTunes and Apple Music. I love discovering new music, especially based on a song I love, which is basically what Pandora does. There are so many different situations that Pandora comes in handy in my house, and I'm so happy I got this app. It's just like the radio, but it's your radio. There's very little ads, and you can have multiple stations. I chose Pandora over iHeartRadio because you create the stations. I personally don't like the radio stations today because the music played on those stations are controlled by other people NOT with your music taste. That's what iHeartRadio plays most of the time. Pandora is unique, if you thumbs up a song it plays more like it. If you thumbs down a song, it won't play it again. Plus, Pandora works better on my phone than iHeartRadio does. On iHeartRadio, if you thumbs down a song it just keeps playing, and on iTunes you can only skip songs, and the song will soon play again. If your looking for today's radio, I would look towards iHeartRadio. If you don't want to download an app, and don't mind what music you listen to within a station, then I would stick with iTunes. But if your like me, and you like a variety of songs that plays a radio based on a song or songs you love only, I would go towards Pandora. This app is unique, and a big part in my music life.
It's great

Simply the iPhone's killer app
by SanJoseScott on 2008/07/29 03:38
I've been a fan of Pandora on personal computers for a few years now. Now it's available for your pocket! You create one or more "stations" based on an artist or song you like, and Pandora's amazing service creates a constant, commercial-free stream of similar music. You can thumb's-up or thumb's-down each song, or skip the ones you decide you don't like, and Pandora constantly fine-tunes your station for you. You can have multiple stations, too, and switch between them instantly. If (like me) you have a taste for uncommon music, no problem, Pandora's library is astonishingly extensive and includes lots of long-ago classics in many, many genres. And did I mention no commercials? And now it's pocketable. In a drive from San Jose to San Francisco, starting with WiFi at my home and continuing with automatic switching between 3G in the populated cities and Edge in the undeveloped portions of I-280, Pandora didn't skip a beat even once. What an amazing testament to the iPhone's groundbreaking capabilities! Beyond the stunning music capabilities is its integration with iTunes. Hear a song you like and want to keep in your own libary? A tap here and a tap there, and it's added to your iTunes basket. Slick! This, folks, is simply the killer app for the iPhone. Recommended. In fact, it's a must-have. You might even say it's one more reason to have an iPhone!
Better than ever with one major flaw
by Ttrestle on 2015/10/04 12:57
I generally love all the changes they've made over the last few updates and since the big change a while back. However, with one exception, and that is many times you cannot see the name of the song that is playing without having to click on a few links. For example, I am listening to the doors, LA woman, alternate version, right now and all I see is that I'm listening to the doors, LA woman. It has cut off the words alternate ending. This is the case with numerous songs because if the song title is too long then you cannot see the true name of it. Or if a remixed version is plain then you do not know. I absolutely hate having to click on the song and then click show more under lyrics to be able to see the full name of the song. For the love of God, just make the song scrolling if there is not enough room. There is no reason why I should have to click numerous times just to see what I am listening to. Who thought this was a good idea when building a new App?! Anyway, fix that please and we are good and I can give you a four or five star rating. I should also say that I actually love the new option to get one hour free listening no commercials provided I watch a marketing video or scroll through and advertising campaign. I also like that it shows how much time I have left and my free hour. I will never take advantage of the paid for option but love that you have an unpaid option to listen to music free of ads for an hour.
Consumer Friendly. Could be slightly improved.

This app is super simple to use which adds to the convenience of the experience. Every time I use Pandora it immerses me in fantastic tunes that calm me down after the long day. I read through the reviews and decided to wright one as I've been seeing a lot of the same thing. Ads and personalization are two complaints that are being mentioned. I understand the presence of ads is fundamental for the development of the app, and I think it's great that you can mix stations and personalize your stations. Although it would be great to be able to select songs to be played over again, I think Pandora is aiming to expand on your musical tastes and introduce you to new music, rather than becoming your free iTunes library. I would however suggesting a menu where personalization is brought to another level for those who are very picky about there musical tastes. This way, rather than the like or dislike options, they have the ability to input or select musical terms/tastes/songs that they prefer only if Pandora is failing to grasp the style of music that the user likes. This should be hidden from the normal menu, just so it won't diminish the laid back, easy going feel of the the app. Other than this, I think this app is a win win for the producers and consumers of music! I recommend this application.
Terrific, but flawed, app
by glennjw77 on 2008/09/06 21:42
If you love Pandora on the internet, you've got to try this app on your iPhone or iPod touch. Like on the website, you can create online stations based on your favorite artists. Just enter the name of the artist, and it will create a station that plays music by that artist and similar artists. It's a great way to discover new artists based on artists you already like. The iPhone app has an interface very similar to the iPhone's iPod, plus you can bookmark songs and artists to access from the website later, and you can rate songs "thumbs up" or "thumbs down". So what's wrong with this app? Well, for one thing, it has a tendency to sometimes skip to the next song before the current song is finished playing. I don't know if this problem is limited to the iPhone app or if it's a problem at the Pandora website too, but it's pretty annoying when you're listening to a song you like, especially if it's one you haven't heard before. What's worse, there's no "back" button to go back to the last song. There is a fast forward button to skip to the next one, as well as a pause button, but there's no way to go back. If they would just add a "back" button it would make the first problem a little more bearable. But to get a five-star rating from me, they have to fix the skipping problem and add a back button. Other than that, it's a great app, and it's free. Check it out!
Pandora=story of my life!
by Mama Vixster on 2014/07/17 01:21
Ever since I was introduced to pandora, I have loved it! I had to upgrade to Pandora One because I'm playing music nearly 24/7. But it's affordable & worth it; No commercials or time limits. It's wonderful for every occasion. From the time I was in high school teeny boppin to now having a 3 month old baby I have had a station for every mood or event. I enjoy a wide variety of music & haven't been disappointed from lack of songs. I put the baby to sleep with spa music & we listen to many different things throughout the day. Through pandora, I don't have go out & buy music it is just one click away staying updated with all the new tunes. I appreciate that I can share the gift of music with my newborn, husband, friends & family. It's great that you can like/dislike a song so they can continue or discontinue playing it. I also enjoy that I am introduced to new music that Iv grown to love and that I wouldn't have learned about otherwise. It can take a while to "shape" a station to be your perfect fit weeding through the songs you like & don't like But Pandora makes this simple with the thumbs up/down buttons :) I do miss the "move this track to another station" button on the iPhone app. But other than that I am a very pleased customer thankful for how Pandora has enhanced my life. Thank you guys!
Overall a good app
by MJsChick on 2014/12/21 12:57
I don't mind paying for the app because I got annoyed at the amount of ads played on the free version. I do wish Pandora wasn't such a stick in the mud about playing the same account on multiple devices. I have 2 iPhones, my old one and the upgraded one and a netbook which all have Pandora loaded onto them. The old iPhone has no cellular service and is used primarily as a toy for my 2 year old and I download stuff using Wi-Fi. I use Pandora to play lullabies at night for her. Now my 7 year old son wants music to sleep to. Since you can't stream music from a device and connect to Bluetooth at the same time, I stream the station from my old iPhone for my daughter and connect my new phone to a Bluetooth speaker so he can listen to lullabies via my new iPhones. I once decided to then connect my netbook and listen to something I wanted to hear. All of a sudden, all the music stopped and I got an e-mail yelling at me about having one account on multiple devices! Boo on that stipulation. The other issue I have is with music variety. I find the same artist popping up on multiple stations, no matter the station, just because I've thumbed up some of their songs. I can sorta understand if the artists are kinda similar. Like MJ popping up on both my James Brown and Prince stations. But when MJ pops up on my Broadway station, someone got lazy with the algorithms.
It Really Is This Good...
by vhase on 2009/04/06 04:27
I am currently driving from Southern California to Northern Washington. I got an auto mount for the iPhone and loaded it up with tons of music, Old Time Radio, and the following: AOL Radio, Wunder Radio and, of course, Pandora Radio. AOL became fairly useless about a block from my point of origin. Wunder Radio works well, but there's a lot of adjusting to tweak it just right for your current reception (bandwidth choices for each station) making it a bit too "hands on" for the drive - Pandora Radio blew me away! It worked right from the start. I had set it for high bandwidth before I even started to listen, remembering my experience with poor sound on AOL Radio - but it started to stutter in edge areas (that's not criticism, just a fact of bandwidth). So I opted to switch back to low bandwidth, and could not believe how good the audio quality was! I've left it there all the way through Northern California and southern Oregon - northbound on interstate 5 all the way - with no troubles whatsoever (except for two brief areas where there was no cell reception). Choosing one of the genre stations is no different than the choices of AOL, and, frankly, choosing an artist helped keep me alert when the drive got long with the occasional thumbs up and thumbs down - just enough interactivity to break up the long gray highway. Road Tested and Highly Recommended!
One of the Best Music Apps out There!
by Ewonguyen on 2011/07/20 00:57
Pandora is a great app. I use it all the time. It's just the thing I need for discovering new kinds of music I like. With Pandora, you pick any artist, song, or genre you want, and it will make a "station" for you that will play that kind of music and other music like it. Like, I have a station called The Beatles Radio, and that "station" plays songs by The Beatles as well as similar artists, like the Rolling Stones, Queen, David Bowie, The Doors, Herman's Hermits, and Electric Light Orchestra. You can even bookmark songs to purchase on the iTunes Store. It's a fantastic app, but there are some things that could be changed. For one thing, you have to be at least thirteen to use Pandora. I don't believe that's fair to people under thirteen. There are also minor things, like some album artwork being of poor quality and some occasional song title typos (once, they misspelled the word wheels in "Watching the Wheels" by John Lennon). Other than that, I think this is a great app that everyone should get and is essential for music lovers like me. How does it stack up to Slacker? Well, personally, I think Slacker has a better looking interface, but it took longer to figure out, and it has WAY more commercials than Pandora. I think Slacker's great, but for some reason, Pandora keeps me coming back for more. I'd pick it over Slacker.
Love the Music & Comedy
by Sleepless in,,,?? on 2015/12/28 08:40
I'd love to give it 5⭐️'s but I have some issues. First I want to tell you thank you for letting me have the choice of listening free or purchasing. I know if I purchase there's either no commercials or less than the free. I love the fact that I can pick different stations by the Artist I enjoy and now I can add the Artists to the one I choose, that's AWESOME!! The other thing I enjoy a bunch, is the Comedy stations. And same thing, I can add the comedians of my choice to the station I pick, love this new addition. My issue is that I do listen quite a bit and I'm not sure if this is fixable or not, but when I listen to the Comedy stations, they're the same material, it would be nice if you could add more material every few months. Soon I will be bored with listening to Jeff Durham, Steve Martin, Christopher Titus, Brian Regan, etc... It would be great if they could add more material and I know some may be impossible after awhile because some Comedians are no longer with us, RIP Robin Williams, ( I will never get sick of him). It is nice to have a station cheer up your day and it has so many times! Thanks Pandora for giving me so many options and letting me listen for free, even though I have to endure a few commercials here and there, and usually it's just one and it's back to the station. Keep up the good work, you've made my world a better place!! 🎤 🎶💃🏼🎶🎼
New Pandora = AWESOME; Selfish Fat Society Gonna Hate
by GuitarBoyOriginal on 2013/03/17 15:29
I can't believe all the selfish negative reviews from people who apparently were raised to say "me me me" and "give me more things I don't have to pay for." Are most of you haters overweight? Do you ever exercise between mouthfuls of burgers and pie? What, did you all vote for Obama? He wants free stuff too and doesn't want to balance the national budget or reduce the debt. To those of us who bothered to read the news when it first came out, Pandora was created at enormous expense and research by way of their pre-launch music genome project. Plus, before going live, Pandora had to sign contracts with music artists to PAY THEM FOR THE STREAMING OF THEIR MUSIC FROM DAY ONE. This was years ago. Pandora is still free and now there is a cap per month. Anyone who doesn't like it can pay $3.99 per month. About the cost of one burger you downed in about 2 minutes flat while you could have been exercising. Haters need to get a life. Thank you Pandora for the FREE service. Ignore the haters, they won't pay anybody, they have a large appetite for drama and just like to whine, and again, most of them are overweight and have no idea what to do about it, so their are subconsciously taking it out on you, Pandora. I heart Pandora and will probably upgrade to the $3.99 per month for ad-free listening.
This is getting aggravating...
by Gt: Urokinase on 2013/10/30 17:17
Ok so, I love, and I mean, LOVE Pandora!! Best app I've ever had, especially because I love music. Music is my best friend, but lately Pandora has been getting on my nerves. For the past couple days, at 12:30 to like 1:25 IT DOES NOT WORK. It would just all of a sudden not connect and it would just stop working. It would claim the network isn't working... And trust me, I am not an idiot with electronics. I did a lot of tests to see what was wrong. Now keep in mind, this problem is on my iPad. So, first, I killed it and tried to open it up again; it didn't work. Next I tried to use the internet on another app to see if it was the internet, it wasn't because all the other apps worked comepetely fine. Next, I tried using the Pandora on my phone, and it worked! At this point, I was getting pretty frustrated... Next I tried killing it and restarting again, but it still didn't work. Then I tried restarting my iPad and it STILL DIDN'T WORK. I came to the final conclusion of uninstalling it and reinstalling it. Since it wasn't connecting, I couldn't log in until later that day. But I do love Pandora, it's introduced me to a lot of new music genres and songs!! I use it all the time... its crazy. but since it doesn't work like that, its veeeerrrryyyy annoying... -_- please fix then i'lll give u guys a 5 star :D thanks, hope this helps. bye
My preferred streaming music app
by Lilyheart9 on 2015/07/25 14:04
I absolutely Love Pandora. I've been using it for years, and have my stations dialed in pretty well according to musical genre. The only station that seems a bit "off" in its algorithmic formula is my Queen station. It's the most recent addition to my list, and I'm surprised that it offers very few of Queen's songs in the playlist. I also give a "thumbs down" every time "Hey Jude" plays on every one of my stations. I love The Beatles, but I cannot stand this one song, yet it keeps showing up for some reason (hoping it will change my mind? Not! Lastly, I use the free version, because I don't normally mind hearing an occasional ad, but I absolutely hate getting bombarded by singles ads. If I have to be subjected to ads, can you at least allow me to give a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" to the content? These are just three small gripes. Overall, I love Pandora and will remain a faithful listener. I buy songs off of the link provided while the song is playing all the time, and have amassed a nice offline playlist too. I will likely move to the paid version once I trade in my car - I have a paid subscription to a competitor that I can take or leave. I just can't justify paying for two music subscriptions at this time. Thanks for being so awesome, Pandora!
Absolutely Spectacular App!
by Ryan Barnhill on 2015/10/21 22:12
Hands down the most spectacular and well created app of all time when it comes to the category of music! As there are many ads, the fantastic music played every track makes up for every bit of it! Many people complain about the ads but I have to say thank you for them! Because the ads is the reason why this app stays free you guys! Without the ads implemented in the app, just imagine having to pay for the app regardless if we want premium or not!! Thank you so much to the creators of this app. It is hands-down my all time favorite music app! It reunites me to music I have not heard in a very long time, and when I hear it, I realize it's been one of my favorite songs in my past that I would have loved to hear again, and would have NEVER though of the song name, regardless of the band, to ever hear the song again. Also introducing me to new bands similar to my favorite bands? This app cannot get any better! Thank you so much for the work and updates brought to this app!! And I'm so excited to use this app for the rest of my mobile life to listen to what I actually WANT to listen to! 5 STARS ALL HANDS DOWN NO EXCEPTIONS!! Could not get any more perfect than this app right here! Recommended to everyone who has a great since and taste in music!
Good... But
by ScottishGlassLady on 2015/12/18 15:55
The good: huge range of music and I like that it does function like a radio station- I never know what I'm going to hear, but it is within my genre. $5/month to go ad-free is eminently affordable. The bad: the ads have gotten outta control. Seriously. They play at a louder volume than my music, making them a sensory jolt sometimes. They are way more frequent and they are (amusingly) for things I would never ever do or buy. It's almost funny because the music is tailored to you that the ads are just crap thrown at a wall to see what sticks IMO. Also, hearing the same song 3x in a day if I have a narrowly focused radio station. "Women in comedy" was great until I listened for over 40 hours... And then repeat after repeat. Also, if I've thumbed down something, it would be nice if Pandora didn't immediately follow it up with 2-4 other tunes that a) are the same exact sound distillation (like multiple banjo pieces in a row on a station that includes about 30 artists by now, only 4 of whom are strictly bluegrass) or a few pieces in a row by the same band... Whose sound I just told you I wasn't keen on. So yeah, it's a good app for the money, but I think it could be a lot better. Especially if they (at Pandora) are still touting it as the "music genome project" wherein "if you like this, we think you'll like that too based on people's data." I can't stand to use it for free anymore though. Ads.
Pandora going down hill for me....
by April_Coleman on 2013/03/20 02:28
I loved Pandora when I first downloaded the app and I still do now but it freezes up a lot. And most of the time when you search a specific artist, for ex. Ed Sheeran it will play maybe 1 or 2 songs by him and the rest of the songs are random artist. Its called Ed Sheeran radio for a reason, just saying. Im not sure if there is anyway you guys can fix that problem but if you can, please do so. Also, im really not liking that you guys giving only 40 hours of music. You just started this and this month I only have 5 hours left for March but I didnt know about the 40 hour thing till yesterday. And I liked Pandora better than any other radio app because you didnt have to pay for it and because it played good music but now you guys are doing this hour thing and then on top of that your charging if you want to continue listening after the hours are up. I understand that you need to make money from Pandora but could you atleast give more hours. I don't know if you've noticed or not but music is very important and has been for a long time so I think there shouldnt be a limit on music. And my final issue is the amount of commercials there are, its really annoying when you have to stop your music to watch dumb commercials. We see them all on TV. Could you please lessen the amount of commercials, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Works well, but no social network integration and some other dumb oversights
by LastSilmaril on 2012/11/08 18:47
I have suffered none of the issues others have mentioned here. Thumbs up and thumbs down work just fine. Skipping songs limitation is inherent to Pandora radio overall, and is the fault of the labels, not Pandora itself. The app is mostly well designed, but there are a dew dumb oversights. One is the lack of integration with Facebook or Twitter for sharing songs with friends. More importantly, the track names often appear very long and truncated, or replaced by a variant of the album artist name and album name. You can bookmark a song but not view the bookmark to find out what the full track name is; I don't really care about viewing bookmarks so much in and of itself, but something should be done about the track name situation. Lastly, searching for song on iTunes from within the app appears to supply iTunes with the album name, not the track name. That's just a silly oversight, given the level of polish the rest of the app exudes. I don't really use iTunes either, but it seems like a feature that they should be able to get right in an iOS music app, given how many people do use iTunes. Also, and this is more of a suggestion, I think the higher quality audio option should be enabled by default on non-phone devices, where data usage and most likely connection quality aren't really issues.
Pandora remains the best app of its kind
by Lymang on 2015/10/29 11:36
So it's been a long time (years?)since I wrote my initial review and it seems only fair to give it another go. My only initial complaint was the presence of ads but that's not really a valid criticism in this day and age and with the evolution of Pandora as a service. The honest truth of it in my opinion is that no one does this as well as Pandora, and their iPhone/iPad app is about as ideal as you can ask for. I switched to the VERY reasonably priced premium version of the Pandora service and I have no complaints. I think my sub fees are going to licensing fees - or I hope so. I know that Pandora has a huge selection and broad swath of artists and genres, I rarely have a problem finding someone I want to hear on Pandora. Any issues I have with Pandora now have nothing to do with the app, and are related to their algorithm for selecting appropriate music based on my seed selection or search criteria. E.g. I have a channel for female rappers. Despite thumbing ONLY songs with female lead vocalist/rappers (probably 50, maybe as many as 100) the algorithm still often gives me songs with no female vocalists (that I thumbs down of course). And there you have it. Great app. Great service(with some pickiness issues on my side)!
I love Pandora, but this is just garbage
by Kyle918 on 2008/07/18 18:55
Pandora is a great application with a LOT of potential. Its main and actually its only drawback that I can see is that if you hit the home button...the application closes!! Why is that? Every application is like this. We iPhone users multitask. The iPhone is such a great phone, but yet, its so one dimensional. It can only run one program at a time. What a waste. The only thing you can close and still have running is the iPod on iPhone. I just don't understand why you would have the application quit on pushing the home button. I mean, God forbid you get a text message and you have to close your music and start over again once you re-enter. It's a busy world out there and it's highly annoying to render my iPhone useless while listening to my favorite music on Pandora. The only problem is that I think that this is Apple's fault. I don't think that they allow any of the apps to run in the background. Supposedly this is because Apple fears the battery life will be shortend. Well Apple, obviously I don't care about battery life if I am willing to have my iPhone in use for about 6 hours a day. It's not complicated to charge it! If I was so worried about battery life I would end calls after a minute not use internet or have my wireless set to on everyday all day and never use the speaker to play music aloud. Get over battery life and allow background processes. "KB"
All The HaTeRz Are poor Non-SubscriberZ
by RåTçHēT on 2013/06/07 00:09
All the haters of Pandora can't pay for a subscription. Ooops did I say that?! Been a paid subscriber 3 years in a row. Took me only a couple days to realize the value in a subscription to satisfy my eclectic taste in music. I have over 40 genre related stations customized by rigid monitoring of what plays, utilizing the thumbs up and down, as well as customizing the "station seeds". The effect of the stringent quality control allows me to enjoy countless listening hours of a vast array of music. Pandora has introduced me to countless undiscovered tracks (for me), and that says volumes because I come from a family of DJ's as well as having friends in the with years digging for music in the DJ industry. I also appreciate the concept and effort put into "The Music Genome Project". It has allowed Pandora to become MY PERFECT DIGITAL DJ !!! Love the background info on most artists. Very well written original material. If you notice the ratings, there is pretty much a simple divide. People either love it or hate it. View the haters, they're mostly non-subscribers. At $36 a year, that's less than a tank of gas, an eighth of weed. Only $3 a month. If you have a smart phone, tell me why u can't afford that? To me PANDORA IS UNDENIABLY WORTH IT, period.
Each Update Brings Something New
by Old Deleted Account on 2013/05/22 18:43
Each update brings something new, and this one is no different. I love what you've done with today's update, but I still have one request that only your website can show: which song is playing off of which station. For example, I have 5 total stations based off of genre, and I'm very particular to know which song is playing off of which station as some songs that are best suited for one genre station plays on another as well. Every time I thumb up a song, I have to go back to my station list, look through the station that I intended to thumb it up in and, if it's not, I have to look in the station(s) that I think that it was thumbed up in and either delete it or thumb it down (assuming it's still in my recently played music history that shows until you force quit the app). If you guys can add this, then you're gold (as they say)! It would make things so much easier for people like me who are nitpicky about what we thumb up and where. Oh, and as a side note, it would be great if you made your desktop app more like the mobile one for iOS and put it in the Mac App Store. That would be great! Keep up the good work and I look forward to what you have to offer in the future!
Best music one bug
by Bright1Owen on 2014/08/19 03:47
Do I need to explain how amazing this app is?!?! I love pandora I'd rate it 5 stars but I know those ratings don't get as much attention. I have a big report and a suggestion. First the suggestion; add a bug report on your help menu you'll get a lot more help thy way and improve software an more. Now for the bug, I've noticed that whenever I listen to music especially over cellular data instead of displaying the length of the song remaining it displays a large number like 39hrs and 20 minutes and some seconds, I assume this is how much music I've listened to but to be honest I'd rather see how much longer I have on my song, if you could fix this bug I'd be grateful. Additionally some further suggestions would be a skip counter, and (I know this won't happen but) give the ability to temporarily download a preselected amount of time of music like an hour and a half that can download ahead of time so I don't have to use data when I'm at the gym or running. I know that's far fetched incase someone tries to steal the music but me and u know that'd happen anyways, so if u do decide to consider it make the amount of time variable but maybe cap at some large amount like 6hrs and make it so the music auto deletes after a song has been heard. Just think about it it'd save money data time, etc. it could be another form of persuasion for pandora one which is too expensive now for what limited services it provides!!! Thanks love a pandora one customer
Good music, horrible ads and UI
by Motown08 on 2015/09/03 00:57
I absolutely love using Pandora and find that their playlists are quite diverse, but almost always consist of exactly what I'm looking to listen to. For that, Pandora gets 4.5 stars. The reason for the 2 star rating is in part due to their increase in ads, and not just those that come up when you're listening. The formatting for ads on your screen that now take up almost the entire screen and have the smallest 'x' button is horrible. I'm constantly accidentally clicking on the ads when I try to close them and then get accosted by Pandora asking me to rate them. 😡 Further, of the ads that play during your listening sessions, some of them have evolved to be politically motivated or personally offensive ads (most currently those touching on the Iran Nuclear deal). As such, I feel like there should be a way to report offensive content or dismiss ads that aren't catered towards you. Of course there is little motivation to improve this experience since it should be a motivator for the purchase of a Pandora subscription, but it is nonetheless infuriating that Pandora has been turning into a political targeting platform when I really want to listen to music. I would be willing to change my rating if Pandora issued some updates addressing the size of the ads on the screen, their increased frequency, and ways to report offensive content.
Why do you guys complain so much
by Ethan Isaiah Chaney on 2016/09/23 03:10
Why do you guys complain so much. There is an app that lets u listen to FREE music. Y'all act like there is no catch. This app is amazing! There is a great variety, u just have to customize your station! Yes you can do that. Y'all say there's no variety but y'all probably don't even look at the full app first. I like Soundcloud too but this app is way better. You don't have to sit there and make a playlist, u can put in ur favorite songs or artists and as many different one as you want and then it plays all the music you could possibly ever want! Yes, adds are annoying but you have to remember that real people make real money off these adds and in return they let us listen to thousands of dollars worth of music, for a 30 second ads. Btw if one pops up and you don't want to wait for the add to go away, just click on a different station and then click back to the one you were listening to, don't be mad Pandora just trying to help. This is my favorite app, I delete and reinstall/download other apps all the time and yet I've had this one for a very long time. Thank you pandora for being patient even tho your customers aren't and thx for making an amazing app.
Best music app bar none...from Cooper
by Sir-Cooper on 2016/07/31 16:31
I can always find music on Pandora's app to lift my spirits - it keeps improving all the time - keep up the great job...Thanks Another review and yes still the best music app out there. I can't understand others complaining about the ads after all it's free. I actually read and watch the videos that come with the ones I am interested in. Just a suggestion cut the price in half and reduce the ads by half of what the free version is now to give another option. I think you could get more to join such as younger kids that can't afford the full version. Or even older people such as I am at 68 years of age. With the lower price version just give a bit more options. I spend a lot of time setting while having my kidney dialysis done 3 days a week so money is tite for me but a reduced version I could afford. Plus I can't sleep at night from the pain I am in so I listen to your app with my ear buds on-it's amazing how much your app helps pass time. I have tried so many music apps but none come close to yours. I can't Thank You enough for making my life more tolerable. I would love to pay and could at a lessor version yes even with some ads. Again Thank You
My savior has come.

I recently lost my favorite jazz radio station in Orlando, and I've been looking for an alternative. Pandora has exceeded my expectations. I've placed all my favorite jazz artists into one station, and it's created a station ten times better than the one I lost. As for the ads, I love them, because they are getting me free access to all kinds of great music. My father works in radio advertising, and the fact that they are able to provide us with free radio with so few ads is abosolutely incredible. For anyone complaing about the ads, go listen to a real radio station some time, because I think you've forgotten how many commercials there are. Our local radio stations do 15 minutes of commercials PER HOUR, and one of the breaks they take is 10 MINUTES LONG. If free radio means an ad from Subway comes up every 8 songs or so, I'll take it no questions asked. Heck, I might even try out that sandwich Subway was advertising! It looked delicious! I have no faults with this app, no complaints, just 100% praise. Thank you for introducing me to some great music, as well as giving me the sure to be soundtrack for my new dorm room in just two weeks. I highly recommend this app to any lover of music of any kind!

I was fortunate to discover pandora long before most people. I have never been disappointed by their program or updates. I still enjoy the free version, and while yes, it does seem there are quite a few more commercials than there were years ago, if it really starts to bother me the simple solution is to buy the app. My only critiques would be to work on the initial song variety when creating stations based on a certain band or genre. An example being the Delta Rae station I created. They are compared, in almost every review I've read, to Fleetwood Mac, based on there song writing, 4 part harmony, etc, yet I've never heard Fleetwood on that station. I do utilize the "add variety" feature but feel that maybe there could be some improvement there. Also the song rotation within all "stations" has room for further development. I have created many stations and I can predict exactly which songs I will hear on each because the selection has not changed despite new music continually coming out. Aside from that, I have always considered myself to be very fortunate to have access to so much beautiful music. I am sure that I will be a user for a long time :)
Please read pandora!
by Duckymancave on 2014/08/02 10:09
Please and thank u. What I want to keep it fresh. Make it easer for me to give a thumbs up or down so I don't have to take my phone out my pocket every time I want to like a song. Have it be a new update and have a on and off toggle switch for people who may not want to use the new feature to quick like dislike songs toggle switch. Trust I'm a dj and I love using pandora my goal is May be work for pandora one day. I'm sure that's only up to the lucky ones in the world or book smart people. But I feel blessed and I want to bless pandora with a new toggle switch witch I would think the world would love. A easy way to go back to my account and see all the like's I'v made in that run. Use the mic clicker as a quick twice to thumbs up and three times to thumbs down. Trust I want to see pandora thrive and inspire for years to come. I believe music inspires people you. It be cool to get a response back I would think I'm not that lucky out of a million likes my message would be read and may be read again. My name is ANTONIO I'm from LBC CA look me up I'm face book I'm not hiding it be cool if u found me I know your smart enough to find me and contact Me. I have a lot of ideas I'd like to share
I love the Personalized Music, BUT...
by Pelipen on 2014/11/24 01:34
...BUT there are 2 things I don't appreciate: 1) The pre-written "kudos" for my review! I can speak for myself! and 2) a $5/month fee, for PandoraOne, just to avoid annoying ads and have a few extra "skips" per day (who really cares?) is ridiculous!! It's greedy and unnecessary!! I'm going to cancel my subscription! It's a waste of money. I'll deal with the ads! MOST apps will offer a one-time upgrade to eliminate irritating ads, but not this one!! Pandora wants you to pay and pay and pay! I think Pandora is far too greedy! I would've rated this app at 5 stars, because it is, overall, a sensational "radio" app, but I am less than satisfied with how Pandora operates, with supreme control. I've emailed 4 suggestions to improve the app (such as capability to add specific artists/songs and hear them at demand). Each time I received a "Sorry, No dice." response. They really don't want to hear any feedback, so don't waste your time and effort! Other than this, if you want to take the time and energy to "train" this app to play only the music you want to hear, nothing surpasses Pandora. I truly enjoy the music they offer! It's a GREAT concept...but poorly controled. Just agree to play by THEIR rules and you may love it!
WOW
by Whoreheezy on 2009/02/03 08:47
I always read comments and reviews, but never ever wrote my own, thats until now. I've never tried Pandora before or knew what it was but decided to give it a shot, just to add a radio station to my iphone. I quickly and easily made an account with pandora and created some stations. My favorite one is my Chromeo station. It's given me alot of songs within the same style and most of the songs are just great. It really knows my taste in music and what I'm looking for. It's all I've been using the last couple of days. its not perfect but its almost here....what stops it from being the perfect application is the fact that you can't put it in the background and use other apps. It is really frustrating when I get a text or need to look up something in another app and the music just stops. I've read why Apple made the decision for this, to save battery life. thats cool I guess, but maybe they should leave that up to us if we want to use mulitple apps at the same time or not.....besides that one and only complaint, this apps is amazing and i love how its always connected. edge, 3g or wifi, you'll always be connected to Pandora. amazing......and best thing about all this......IT'S FREE!!!!!
A daily user
by skyhorse101 on 2013/03/22 18:10
I would like to start with the fact that I have been using pandora radio since I bought my first iPhone some time in 2008. In the long run I have seen many improvements or updates that have passed through Pandora as an app. The recent 40 hour limit listening is a real disappointment and I am hoping that the second time around testing this limit fails and it is once again taken away. Maybe this is the company's way of pushing the purchase of this application I am not sure. I would also like to see an ability to download the songs that I enjoy listening to. Maybe rewarding clients who listen regularly with a free song download for listening to them constantly instead of limiting the service provided. Lastly I'd like to touch on something specific to the iPad application. I like the ability to see the lyrics to the songs that are being played and am unable to specifically on my iPad. Please make this simple change as it would only improve customer satisfaction. In conclusion I hope that Joe Kennedy's Successor is for the improvement of Pandora and is able to grow customer satisfaction. My overall satisfaction has been steadily decreasing and the new additions/restrictions are not helping to keep the free version of the application at the top of free application software.
runs on wifi and the 3G network seamlessly
by Bruce Radaikin on 2009/07/08 17:08
The coveted 6 star rating... I love it!!! One of the best free apps, no wait, one of the best apps on the iPhone... I thought I would have some issues with streaming but no... plays just like my ipod... The sound quality is full... It sounds like your playing a cd on a great sound system... Does it matter that I'm using this app on my new 3GS? I don't know. Some reviews stated that they had some issues with the update. Have not had any problems myself. Just great music. Put in one of your favorite artists and get songs from that artist (i.e. Beatles) along with other similar styled artists. A great way to be introduced to music that you may not have initially thought about checking out. Thumb down feature lets you goto the next song and I guess knows not to play that song again for you(I'm not sure about that as a feature, does anybody know?). Yes, it's true that you cannot run this app in the background... Just like all the other 40,000 third party apps. If you want music in the background while running other apps you can play your ipod, eventually Apple will have to let third party applications do the same. Keep up the great work Pandora Radio.
A wonderful gift to the world!
by sjzb on 2009/07/12 23:25
Amazing repertoire of all kinds of music! Wonderful, intuitive search engine rewards the listener with delightful new discoveries and priceless, sometimes forgotten old treasures. Notes on music and composers make it a great musical educational and discovery tool for all ages. This app is a true treasure!!! Pandora Support rocks as well! I was in process of deleting/re-installing all ITunes apps from my macbook and Iphone, but for some reason had trouble "re-purchasing" a couple apps, including Pandora. My email to Pandora Support was answered in LESS THAN 90 seconds by Esteban, who explained that since Pandora currently has "no age rating" (ie- 4+, 12+) in the ITunes store, the parental controls on my computer and/or Iphone were blocking the function of the "get app" button in the store and the subsequent re-download on the Iphone. Temporarily de-activating parental controls solved my 're-purchase' problem of all 3 apps impacted! Visual ads are clear but small and unobstrusive..... wise decision as I scan them out of gratitude for subsidizing Pandora but would ignore them if they interfered with the music experience. THANKS PANDORA and all Pandora staff!!!! You truly gift the world with beauty.
Great app!
by warcraft_parker on 2013/06/05 22:41
I keep reading these reviews that give one star due to the waiting period for skipping, the FB sharing, ads, etc, and am baffled on how much complaining people can do because of these features! I've purchased the PandoraOne service, which gets rid of the ads, and I've never been happier with Internet radio. I don't use the FB sharing, but know others use it and respect it being there. I hardly notice the two second waiting period, as my life doesn't need a second-by-second regulation on what is going on...and I usually allow the song to play a few seconds as it is to hear what it is, or what version it is. That being said, if you don't like features, don't use them, it won't kill you that they are there. Though I am still giving it 5 stars, there are a couple small features that I would love to see implemented. If there is a music video associated with a song, it would be awesome to have an external link to it, or have it play with the song. Next, having a back button on songs played, even if it was one song, would be nice. I've accidentally hit the 'next' button too quickly and skipped a song I love, and kick myself for doing so. Happy jamming!
Great app, but has some flaws
by Eggo in LA on 2008/07/13 22:04
Pandora does what it's supposed to do - builds a customized radio station that learns your preferences and offers new music that you might like. For that, it's perfect, and it's amazing that it's free. However, there are some problems with the initial version of the app. It is very easy to exit the program, and once you do, it kills it. For example, if you have to hit the home button to do something else, the app shuts off. If you get a phone call, the app shuts off. It would be better if you could set Pandora to run in the background so you could multi-task. You do get reception over the Edge network, but sometimes it will cut out for 5-10 seconds. Most of the time though, it is usable over Edge, which is great for free. Over wi-fi, I've never had it cut out on me. The final 'problem' is this app is a battery hog. Granted, you are streaming and transmitting data constantly, so this is to be expected to a certain degree. I listened to the radio for about an hour over Edge and I was shocked to see my non-3G iPhone battery was about 1/4 gone. If you're over Wi-fi or 3G, the battery drain will probably be worse. If you have a charge cable with you wherever you go (so battery life is not a problem), this app is great.
Simply the Future of Radio
by Kee Hinckley on 2008/11/26 16:02
Nothing else matches Pandora's music matching algorithms. Pick some mellow instrumental piece as a seed and you'll get the perfect soundtrack for bedtime. Throw three completely different artists at it and you'll get a playlist that alternates between those styles. Use it as a game on long car trips, seeding playlists with obscure songs or artists and seeing where it goes. On Halloween I created a playlist simply seeded with The Monster Mash and got back a station consisting almost entirely of Haloween-appropriate tunes; songs about vampires and ghosts and wolfmen, ranging from Rocky Horror to Live Potion #9. Lately I've had to drive the family several times from Massachusetts to Michigan and back; 15 hours in the car. No futzing with radio stations. No worrying about whose favorite songs are on the playlist; we just take turns with Pandora. I even completely befuddled my father by creating a station of old cowboy country tunes for him. That said, Pandora on the iPhone needs one thing, and only Apple can provide it. Lobby Apple for background playing. In the meantime, an in-app browser would be nice for those times I want to look something up on the web without turning off the music.
Good at first
by mspinelli2000 on 2014/04/07 20:26
Pandora works very well at first. Plays songs similar to what you suggest, and usually brings in some obscure stuff that you wouldn't know of otherwise. I have been using pandora for years now at this point, and the main problem I've encountered is repeating. It seems like there's a loop of songs associated with one another, and when you make a station and listen to it continually, at some point it just starts to replay the songs but in a different, slightly varied order. This is especially troublesome if you give a 'thumbs up' to a song. It seems like as soon as I do that to ONE SONG, it gets stuck on that one song and completely changes the nature of the station based off of that one song. For example, if I'm listening to a non-red hot chili peppers station, and they play a RHCP song that I like and I give it a thumbs up, the station turns into just a RHCP station and really limits the options for songs. This is not that big of a deal if you just don't thumbs up or down a song, and just let it play and skip if you don't want to hear a song. Other than that, works super well and has exposed me to some of my favorite songs/artists over the years. Still use Pandora regularly and will continue to do so.
Pandora paid subscriber
by Jgame24 on 2015/09/29 01:37
I have been a paying Pandora subscriber for 3 years now. Let's get some things out of the way now. First, there are many different options out there for streaming music with some being better then others. Pandora for me gives allows me to listen to and explore many different musicians from many different genres without having to do very much. I get bored very easily and love the wide range of music Pandora provides by simply typing in a song or artist I like. Second, if you want to listen to exact songs or albums from artists then this company is not for you. Lastly, Pandora does repeat songs and artists. If you think there is a never ending supply of new songs and artists then your wrong. You need to keep on exploring genres and artists which is part of the experience. Pandora is well worth the price to me given I use it in my car, train and for every party I host. Everyone is always happy by the variety of music and the sound quality is great. One more thing to mention, when going through a tunnel I use to get immediately cut off. Now they allow enough of the song to load/buffer for me to finish a complete song even without a signal. Keep up the good work Pandora.
Pandora
by Hector Hernandez on 2015/01/06 05:35
I love pandora I can have any kind of music when it comes to my dancing and I have to practice I go to pandora and look up ballet jazz hip hop tap and I have the music in less then a min. When it comes to listening music with my friends I just listen to my tween radio. If I need a love song I go to my prince Royce radio, I guess I can count on pandora if I ever need music or think of music I click or think of pandora. I literally use music all the time so I guess I use pandora all the time. For example chores I have music homework I have my music on or I guess pandora on taking my showers well that's a little tmi, to much info but it's true . The best part about pandora is that it has mixed up songs not repeating the same song over and over again that's why I love pandora so many different songs from different artists and I learn new artist which is amazing cause I learn new songs. Ok well u see my point how amazing pandora is if it didn't exist then I would have to listen to the same songs over and over which to me is boring it would be horrifying, well that's how much I love pandora 😍😚😘😚😙😗😉😊☺️💛💙💜💚❤️💗💓💕💖💞💘💌💋that's all I have to say now back to my music
A truly great application
by brncndlr on 2008/08/24 03:44
I was curious when downloading this app, as usually internet based radio is flawed in some way. Pandora lets you create up to 100 stations by entering a band or song name, then that station will try to match you up with similar music to your selection. So far it has been very accurate with what it thinks I will like. If you don't like a song it gives you, you can give it a thumbs down. Two thumbs down to the same artist will ban that artist from your station. A thumbs up will let the program know you approve of this artist. By taking the info you give it, it can really tailor a station to your specific tastes. However, even without any thumbs up/down inputs, the stations are great already. You can skip songs, but only 6 times per hour, not too bad when it gives mostly good music. Also, using Pandora does not block incoming calls, you will be interupted by the ringer, and taken back to the same song when finished with your call. Awesome! All they need to do now is work with Apple to allow this app to run in the background with any task in iPhone. I would definitely pay for that feature. (This review references version 1.1)
Great music with terrible interface
by Foxyshadis on 2012/02/18 05:08
Pandora can be so incredibly frustrating sometimes, when you're driving and all you want to know is what that awesome song you just heard was... But it plays so much awesome stuff, more than any other radio app. Hell of a conundrum. I don't care what anyone says, I loathe ads of all sort, so I paid and I'm much happier with the app now - especially since I can skip all the crappy tracks I want. It plays great quality music on the cell network, has massively expanded its catalogue, and consistently turns me on to great music (when I can bookmark it in time). If you can't bookmark by the end of the song, you're screwed. I'm sick of the UI problems: The iPad doesn't allow you to see your bookmarks anywhere. The iPhone app also has completely different interfaces in portrait and landscape since a recent version; I much preferred the old unified interface. There is no way to bookmark or thumbs up a song in the iPhone's history (landscape mode), and the history routinely disappears when you try to view it. None of the pandora interfaces, including web, track your overall song history, which is a huge mistake in my opinion; I want to come home and see what I listened to in the car, instead of lunging for the phone and trying to bookmark it in time.
Love Pandora, but.....
by Watersideglass on 2014/10/07 13:40
I've been with Pandora since the beginning and I love what you guys do, but it has become incredibly annoying recently how often songs I will press the "dislike" button for will end up popping back up again not even an hour or two later!!!! Please, please, I understand you guys have certain contractual obligations, but this has become annoying to the point where I have begun shopping around for alternatives for Internet radio. I know as well that in not the only one with this complaint and I know many who's decision to leave Pandora was prompted in part by this feature. Please, please if there's any way at all that you could ensure that when a particular song is disliked on a station that it NEVER re-appears on that station, you would make this customer and many others very happy and much more inclined to continue being paid subscribers. Perhaps even have a "dislike list" on the full browser version so that customers can go through it if they choose and reverse previous decisions? It's not that we never want to listen to it again sometimes, but I assure you, your customers don't generally magically change their minds in the space of an hour and to repeatedly have to dislike a song until we have done it so much that we are locked from further skips is maddening to say the least.
The most!!!!
by mtandh20 on 2015/06/11 13:33
As a technologically challenged person, this is a superior way to listen to music, fall asleep with relaxation music, awaken to inspiring music or even put some 60s, beautiful Christian hymns, current top hits, or anything you could even think of to set a station on. Phenomenal is an understatement for Pandora! It is so worth the cost per month! As noted before, you can advance it, high 5 it, or trash it if that particular song is not to your liking. They do an incredible job of matching up like genre as well. If that is not enough, they also have incredible reviews written by people giving bio information which also includes historical musical history. And, if that's not enough, you can click on an album cover in the discography and sample tracks - and even leave a comment. Obviously it took a while for me to learn that tapping on the little items or the artist name or album title would take me into another realm and a fabulous app. You certainly get your money's worth but more than that an opportunity to enjoy an expansive realm of music that will surely satisfy every person's particular desire to listen to. Enjoy and relish the opportunity:-) You'll never regret it!
Do not upgrade to pandora plus
by Lo23lo on 2016/10/25 18:12
I have had pandora plus for a few years now and with the new update I was SO excited to have unlimited skips...it's total bs on Pandora's part. I've been hoping ever since the update they would have another to fix the many bugs but nope! Since the update the station a song will randomly stop working or skip to a different song without me even touching my phone. Or it gets halfway through a song before cutting out and seeing that my song has been paused with again, nothing touching the phone. When I hit play on my phone the song starts back from the very beginning and then will pause at the same exact spot. It will do this over and over again...real annoying when a great song comes on and you can only listen to the first 30 seconds of it on repeat. I was already paying for pandora plus for years before the update and it worked great but DO NOT pay for pandora plus now, their update obviously has tons of problems and it is not worth it. Pandora seems to get worse and worse with every update which is very unfortunate, they used to be great but I've finally decided to cancel my subscription after years and years of subscribing. It's not worth it, it's a rip off, and the company isn't honest about what is included. Incredibly disappointing.

by Village Princess on 2017/02/18 20:10
I cancelled XM radio because Pandora plays better music and I would rather listen to the ads on Pandora than the obnoxious DJ's on XM who don't know when to shut up. They talk more than listening to ads. Keep up the good work Pandora!

by Sherrysaw1 on 2017/02/18 20:01
It seems every time I open another app no matter what it is, pandora will drop out, pause, or just stop working. I love pandora but this is really rather annoying I mean I get it for ones that use a speaker but it does when I open my safari or even my calculator!!!! Fix this bug please!!!!!!!
Awesome app

Have stations set up depending on my mood. 90% of the time I'm listening to music in spanish (Latin American artists) and they have a great selection. I don't mind the ads at all, they pop up in reasonable intervals. To sum up: love it!
Great music channels

It spend more time with me than my friends or family AND knows my taste in music 😉 I love this app and I use it all day every day - driving to work, in the office, at the gym, and when I'm home cooking, cleaning, and even use the ambient station when I'm sleeping! Thanks Pandora!

ENGLISH VERSION???
by -AMR- on 2017/02/18 17:02
Where can I find the English version - all non music content is in a foreign language and I have no idea what is interrupting my music such as a severe weather announcement, missing child, missing senior, terror attack, etc. please make language specific Apps if you can going to continue with the foreign language as I can no longer use your service if you do not. Thank you.

Slight problem
by hummenah on 2017/02/18 15:29
I love pandora and listen to it on my way to school. I turn it off when I get to class, I do the swipey thing and everything. But when I get to class, I take a sneak peak at my phone and pandora is still on and it's playing with the volume all the way up. It happened in my French class and my earbuds were not plugged into my phone. I got in a little bit of trouble for that.
Appreciated Warnings
by A Happy Fellow on 2017/02/18 15:29
I don't care for trashy "adult" content. My settings reflect that. Today, while searching for Looney Tunes, of Warner Bros. & Bugs Bunny fame, I picked a likely sounding suggestion and received a warning regarding the trashy content of the choice. I'm quite grateful for that.

by Godlessassassin69 on 2017/02/18 14:34
I love Pandora , they have everything I look for in a music station. The only tweak I would make is having my prime artists work more dominate on their station. For example, I went over an hour without hearing Amy Lee's angelic voice on my Evenescence station which is a crime lol!

Pandora plus
by Mmk01 on 2017/02/18 14:05
Good for when you're on wifi. Offline needs some work. I use it during my 8 hour shift and to listen to the same 6 songs 4 times a day with no random shuffle gets pretty boring fast. I'm tired of pitbull, flo-rida and t-pain. If I listen to a station for so many hours shuffle through some of the content. Also why does it have to open to get it to alarm with music?
Love it but one thing.
by Wolffette02 on 2017/02/18 14:05
I love this app. I'm on it 24/7 cause I am addicted to music and the one thing I'm annoyed by is the "get premium" or "upgrade for more skips" I don't care about that I just want to listen to my music without adds that will keep popping up. But besides that it's really good.
Keeps reloading while playing thru Bluetooth in 2014 Honda Odyssey
by hikingoutwest on 2017/02/18 14:03
Worked fine until last upgrade. Now it plays for about 5 min and then stops. Honda display says pandora is loading and after a minute it starts playing again. This cycle then repeats itself. Present version is unusable in the odyssey
Fix needed
by Brubasteve on 2017/02/18 13:48
iPhone. When I forget to turn on my wifi and access Pandora, I get an error message that will never clear unless I turn my phone off and back on. And when I have my wifi on Pandora takes forever to load. I like the service, but this stuff needs fixed or I'll just listen to TuneIn.

Won't work with car after last update.
by Jjtrannel on 2017/02/18 02:51
Pandora will connect to my car (Mazda 6) and play one song then it crashes as the next song starts and has to reconnect before crashing out again after each song. Bye Bye Pandora this is a deal breaker. I was only using this because it worked seamlessly with my car. Since it doesn't work at all now. I am going full time with Google music. By the way it no longer responds to the commands from the lock screen (iPhone 6), and I can no longer see the album artwork at full screen. I consider the app ruined with these changes. Since I can't give Zero stars I begrudgingly give you 1......

by WelcometoMarz on 2017/02/18 01:41
You can't go wrong with pandora one. The minimal fee is worth every penny. If you're someone like me who enjoys all types of music or needs music to get through some or all of your day, don't think twice. I used to close out of the app and go back in constantly to rid myself of the ads but that got annoying and I just gave in for the paid version. I don't regret my purchase at all.

by Ulovegames on 2017/02/18 01:23
The constant flow of ads are getting old. Especially with the new pandora plus they try to annoy you so you pay for the upgrade. The music stays where it's at and goes back to it when you come back to it. May sound good but most times my mood has changed since the last time I listened to that song, and its time to move on.
Favorite song app
by Don't even rate on 2014/06/28 21:00
I personally think most the people who give this app bad reviews have ZERO patience and there reasons to why it's bad are stupid. They don't think about the millions of people who use this and how many people use it at one time. Nothing is perfect. So of course there will always be things that can "make it better" but for the adds they are annoying but at the same time I don't really care because I don't sit there and stare at the screen and enjoying the picture that is there! I have a life!! If I'm listening to pandora I'm 100% of the time doing something else on my phone. Or I'm laying down. Like right now I'm doing both! The only time my music or anyone else that I knows music stops it's because it asks if you are still listening. Which is a good reason to stop the music. I always get notifications saying there are more songs on a station. I have never had it tell me there are none. I think this is an app that I would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone and I would give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! It's a great app and I have had minimum complaints. None that affect me or bother me enough to want to change anything. There are ads but I never have the app open when listening. Which is amazing that I can do other things and myosin still play. Yes I would like to be able to go back a certain amount of songs. But I don't skip a song by accident enough for it to bother me. Plus the so g usually comes back on again soon which I really like!!
FIX THE BLANK ALBUM COVER!!!
by Maggie 63!:93!384& on 2016/06/20 01:12
I love Pandora. Hands down. I love being able to listen to music that I don't actually own and it really helps me find out other music that I love. I never would've known that I absolutely love piano music if it wasn't for Pandora. But I do have a few complaints. Mainly the changed the blank album cover to the weird blue and white record/CD thing which I don't like. It used to be this like gray scale thing which I really liked and it didn't show up on my lock screen and now that stupid record does. Boo Pandora. Boo you. Also every once in a while I like a new song. Because really I only listen to one stations and I have literally perfected it. But every once in a while I do thumb up a new song and then instantly I get a slew of songs from that genre. I don't like that at all. I DO NOT need to listen to eight rap songs in a row. Just because I like one rap song does not mean I want to listen to every rap song in existence. The same happens with country music and I want it to stop. Through in a rap song here and there. But what I would really like is if the app would recognize the songs that I never skip and play them more often. There are definitely songs that I thumbed up because they were hip and I liked them for a spell but now I might want to listen to them now and again. I want Pandora to play the songs I love more than the songs I'm cool with. But other than that I put my seal of approval on this app.
Feeling a little angry here....
by DianaC112001 on 2016/03/03 13:05
For people with older devices might be having a more inconvenient experience (especially if subscribed from the device with the Pandora One loading screen) My mom and brother normally have the Pandora loading screen without ads due to subscription from another device. They both have iPad 2s and don't seem to have an issue at all. On the other hand, Pandora One was subscribed from my iPad 2 and has some issues that anger me. One, sometimes Pandora will hang so badly that I would have to force quit it to get it to work. If I tap my finger back into the app when I try to force quit it, the app will not respond no matter what you do to try to get out of it that I have to turn off my iPad and get it back in the plug to get it to respond. Two, when Pandora gets stuck and you can force quit it, it cuts you off your music stating that there are no tracks available on that particular station. No matter what station you go to after that point, same statement. Three, when you are on a station with your favorite song on and tune in to another station and tune back to the station with your favorite song, it will skip on to the next track you don't really like. I've had to delete and reinstall Pandora once since iOS 9 came out. I hope that you could either fix these issues or make a compatibility list of devices that could run Pandora well without issues interrupting listeners' experience (with the Pandora One subscription).
My REAL Review
by MateFeedKillRepeat on 2008/09/02 21:53
I wrote a comment before but now I want to give this App the review it deserves: Pros: 1. For iPhone users: This app works anywhere you have cell signal 2. For iPod Touch users: Works anywhere you have internet 3. Can have as many stations as you want 4. Can group them in alphabetical order to make stations easy to find 5. No more listening to the artists you don't like over and over. YOU pick what you listen to! 6. It work seamlessly with your account on the Pandora website. If you add a new station on here it shows up there too. 7. It takes up barely any space on your iPod/iPhone 8. You get it all for FREE!!!! Cons: 1. Can't do anything else why radio is playing except put it to sleep 2. You can't recieve incomming calls on the iPhone while it's playing or call other people 3. Only six skips per hour Overall: This App is the supreme. The best in the whole App Store. If you could only download one App onto your iPod/iPhone I would pick this one. It's great to be able to pick certain artists to listen to instead of listening to whatevers on. At last I can control my own radio! The only thing that really bugs my at all about this App is that you can only skip six times per hours. It would be nice it they made a paid version with unlimited skips. But that's not really a big problem. I really suggest you get this App right now because until you do there will be a gapping Pandora sized hole in your heart.
Takes place of iTunes, amazing app
by Felicia B ;) on 2015/08/26 13:48
I personally love this app. For me, I use it instead of iTunes and Apple Music. I love discovering new music, especially based on a song I love, which is basically what Pandora does. There are so many different situations that Pandora comes in handy in my house, and I'm so happy I got this app. It's just like the radio, but it's your radio. There's very little ads, and you can have multiple stations. I chose Pandora over iHeartRadio because you create the stations. I personally don't like the radio stations today because the music played on those stations are controlled by other people NOT with your music taste. That's what iHeartRadio plays most of the time. Pandora is unique, if you thumbs up a song it plays more like it. If you thumbs down a song, it won't play it again. Plus, Pandora works better on my phone than iHeartRadio does. On iHeartRadio, if you thumbs down a song it just keeps playing, and on iTunes you can only skip songs, and the song will soon play again. If your looking for today's radio, I would look towards iHeartRadio. If you don't want to download an app, and don't mind what music you listen to within a station, then I would stick with iTunes. But if your like me, and you like a variety of songs that plays a radio based on a song or songs you love only, I would go towards Pandora. This app is unique, and a big part in my music life.
It's great
by Bloontowerdefence on 2015/03/17 02:43
Try to add where u can search by the name they sorta do but it could be better fyi this puts me to sleep at night with all these songs great app they do have it where u search I just didn't find what I wanted and they have tons of songs but by no means all the songs u could ever ask for hope u like my long pointless review with me just saying facts I've found after a couple months I hate u need account for it that just kills me the even better part is if u go to sleep after 20 or 30 minutes it will turn off and u just touch button to turn back on I just wanna see how long I can type because I hate writing but if it's mobile I can do a 40 page paper cause it's just so fun to write stuff aka type stuff and I'm listening to music while typing which just makes it better I listen to pandora tell me if u think I should be an author to a really long pointless book like an auto biography I could type for ages I hope u had fun reading this yea I'm talking to u that guy that's reads reviews and decided to read a 5 pages review about random stuff I just think of so maybe I should just keep typing and never stop this whole thing is nonstop brain work I never stop to make changes or think of what next if it's full of perfect no mistakes thank you auto correct if it's full of random words get out of here auto correct I seriously want to just type forever can I do that
Simply the iPhone's killer app
by SanJoseScott on 2008/07/29 03:38
I've been a fan of Pandora on personal computers for a few years now. Now it's available for your pocket! You create one or more "stations" based on an artist or song you like, and Pandora's amazing service creates a constant, commercial-free stream of similar music. You can thumb's-up or thumb's-down each song, or skip the ones you decide you don't like, and Pandora constantly fine-tunes your station for you. You can have multiple stations, too, and switch between them instantly. If (like me) you have a taste for uncommon music, no problem, Pandora's library is astonishingly extensive and includes lots of long-ago classics in many, many genres. And did I mention no commercials? And now it's pocketable. In a drive from San Jose to San Francisco, starting with WiFi at my home and continuing with automatic switching between 3G in the populated cities and Edge in the undeveloped portions of I-280, Pandora didn't skip a beat even once. What an amazing testament to the iPhone's groundbreaking capabilities! Beyond the stunning music capabilities is its integration with iTunes. Hear a song you like and want to keep in your own libary? A tap here and a tap there, and it's added to your iTunes basket. Slick! This, folks, is simply the killer app for the iPhone. Recommended. In fact, it's a must-have. You might even say it's one more reason to have an iPhone!

I generally love all the changes they've made over the last few updates and since the big change a while back. However, with one exception, and that is many times you cannot see the name of the song that is playing without having to click on a few links. For example, I am listening to the doors, LA woman, alternate version, right now and all I see is that I'm listening to the doors, LA woman. It has cut off the words alternate ending. This is the case with numerous songs because if the song title is too long then you cannot see the true name of it. Or if a remixed version is plain then you do not know. I absolutely hate having to click on the song and then click show more under lyrics to be able to see the full name of the song. For the love of God, just make the song scrolling if there is not enough room. There is no reason why I should have to click numerous times just to see what I am listening to. Who thought this was a good idea when building a new App?! Anyway, fix that please and we are good and I can give you a four or five star rating. I should also say that I actually love the new option to get one hour free listening no commercials provided I watch a marketing video or scroll through and advertising campaign. I also like that it shows how much time I have left and my free hour. I will never take advantage of the paid for option but love that you have an unpaid option to listen to music free of ads for an hour.
Consumer Friendly. Could be slightly improved.

This app is super simple to use which adds to the convenience of the experience. Every time I use Pandora it immerses me in fantastic tunes that calm me down after the long day. I read through the reviews and decided to wright one as I've been seeing a lot of the same thing. Ads and personalization are two complaints that are being mentioned. I understand the presence of ads is fundamental for the development of the app, and I think it's great that you can mix stations and personalize your stations. Although it would be great to be able to select songs to be played over again, I think Pandora is aiming to expand on your musical tastes and introduce you to new music, rather than becoming your free iTunes library. I would however suggesting a menu where personalization is brought to another level for those who are very picky about there musical tastes. This way, rather than the like or dislike options, they have the ability to input or select musical terms/tastes/songs that they prefer only if Pandora is failing to grasp the style of music that the user likes. This should be hidden from the normal menu, just so it won't diminish the laid back, easy going feel of the the app. Other than this, I think this app is a win win for the producers and consumers of music! I recommend this application.
Terrific, but flawed, app
by glennjw77 on 2008/09/06 21:42
If you love Pandora on the internet, you've got to try this app on your iPhone or iPod touch. Like on the website, you can create online stations based on your favorite artists. Just enter the name of the artist, and it will create a station that plays music by that artist and similar artists. It's a great way to discover new artists based on artists you already like. The iPhone app has an interface very similar to the iPhone's iPod, plus you can bookmark songs and artists to access from the website later, and you can rate songs "thumbs up" or "thumbs down". So what's wrong with this app? Well, for one thing, it has a tendency to sometimes skip to the next song before the current song is finished playing. I don't know if this problem is limited to the iPhone app or if it's a problem at the Pandora website too, but it's pretty annoying when you're listening to a song you like, especially if it's one you haven't heard before. What's worse, there's no "back" button to go back to the last song. There is a fast forward button to skip to the next one, as well as a pause button, but there's no way to go back. If they would just add a "back" button it would make the first problem a little more bearable. But to get a five-star rating from me, they have to fix the skipping problem and add a back button. Other than that, it's a great app, and it's free. Check it out!
Pandora=story of my life!
by Mama Vixster on 2014/07/17 01:21
Ever since I was introduced to pandora, I have loved it! I had to upgrade to Pandora One because I'm playing music nearly 24/7. But it's affordable & worth it; No commercials or time limits. It's wonderful for every occasion. From the time I was in high school teeny boppin to now having a 3 month old baby I have had a station for every mood or event. I enjoy a wide variety of music & haven't been disappointed from lack of songs. I put the baby to sleep with spa music & we listen to many different things throughout the day. Through pandora, I don't have go out & buy music it is just one click away staying updated with all the new tunes. I appreciate that I can share the gift of music with my newborn, husband, friends & family. It's great that you can like/dislike a song so they can continue or discontinue playing it. I also enjoy that I am introduced to new music that Iv grown to love and that I wouldn't have learned about otherwise. It can take a while to "shape" a station to be your perfect fit weeding through the songs you like & don't like But Pandora makes this simple with the thumbs up/down buttons :) I do miss the "move this track to another station" button on the iPhone app. But other than that I am a very pleased customer thankful for how Pandora has enhanced my life. Thank you guys!
Overall a good app
by MJsChick on 2014/12/21 12:57
I don't mind paying for the app because I got annoyed at the amount of ads played on the free version. I do wish Pandora wasn't such a stick in the mud about playing the same account on multiple devices. I have 2 iPhones, my old one and the upgraded one and a netbook which all have Pandora loaded onto them. The old iPhone has no cellular service and is used primarily as a toy for my 2 year old and I download stuff using Wi-Fi. I use Pandora to play lullabies at night for her. Now my 7 year old son wants music to sleep to. Since you can't stream music from a device and connect to Bluetooth at the same time, I stream the station from my old iPhone for my daughter and connect my new phone to a Bluetooth speaker so he can listen to lullabies via my new iPhones. I once decided to then connect my netbook and listen to something I wanted to hear. All of a sudden, all the music stopped and I got an e-mail yelling at me about having one account on multiple devices! Boo on that stipulation. The other issue I have is with music variety. I find the same artist popping up on multiple stations, no matter the station, just because I've thumbed up some of their songs. I can sorta understand if the artists are kinda similar. Like MJ popping up on both my James Brown and Prince stations. But when MJ pops up on my Broadway station, someone got lazy with the algorithms.
It Really Is This Good...
by vhase on 2009/04/06 04:27
I am currently driving from Southern California to Northern Washington. I got an auto mount for the iPhone and loaded it up with tons of music, Old Time Radio, and the following: AOL Radio, Wunder Radio and, of course, Pandora Radio. AOL became fairly useless about a block from my point of origin. Wunder Radio works well, but there's a lot of adjusting to tweak it just right for your current reception (bandwidth choices for each station) making it a bit too "hands on" for the drive - Pandora Radio blew me away! It worked right from the start. I had set it for high bandwidth before I even started to listen, remembering my experience with poor sound on AOL Radio - but it started to stutter in edge areas (that's not criticism, just a fact of bandwidth). So I opted to switch back to low bandwidth, and could not believe how good the audio quality was! I've left it there all the way through Northern California and southern Oregon - northbound on interstate 5 all the way - with no troubles whatsoever (except for two brief areas where there was no cell reception). Choosing one of the genre stations is no different than the choices of AOL, and, frankly, choosing an artist helped keep me alert when the drive got long with the occasional thumbs up and thumbs down - just enough interactivity to break up the long gray highway. Road Tested and Highly Recommended!
One of the Best Music Apps out There!
by Ewonguyen on 2011/07/20 00:57
Pandora is a great app. I use it all the time. It's just the thing I need for discovering new kinds of music I like. With Pandora, you pick any artist, song, or genre you want, and it will make a "station" for you that will play that kind of music and other music like it. Like, I have a station called The Beatles Radio, and that "station" plays songs by The Beatles as well as similar artists, like the Rolling Stones, Queen, David Bowie, The Doors, Herman's Hermits, and Electric Light Orchestra. You can even bookmark songs to purchase on the iTunes Store. It's a fantastic app, but there are some things that could be changed. For one thing, you have to be at least thirteen to use Pandora. I don't believe that's fair to people under thirteen. There are also minor things, like some album artwork being of poor quality and some occasional song title typos (once, they misspelled the word wheels in "Watching the Wheels" by John Lennon). Other than that, I think this is a great app that everyone should get and is essential for music lovers like me. How does it stack up to Slacker? Well, personally, I think Slacker has a better looking interface, but it took longer to figure out, and it has WAY more commercials than Pandora. I think Slacker's great, but for some reason, Pandora keeps me coming back for more. I'd pick it over Slacker.
Love the Music & Comedy
by Sleepless in,,,?? on 2015/12/28 08:40
I'd love to give it 5⭐️'s but I have some issues. First I want to tell you thank you for letting me have the choice of listening free or purchasing. I know if I purchase there's either no commercials or less than the free. I love the fact that I can pick different stations by the Artist I enjoy and now I can add the Artists to the one I choose, that's AWESOME!! The other thing I enjoy a bunch, is the Comedy stations. And same thing, I can add the comedians of my choice to the station I pick, love this new addition. My issue is that I do listen quite a bit and I'm not sure if this is fixable or not, but when I listen to the Comedy stations, they're the same material, it would be nice if you could add more material every few months. Soon I will be bored with listening to Jeff Durham, Steve Martin, Christopher Titus, Brian Regan, etc... It would be great if they could add more material and I know some may be impossible after awhile because some Comedians are no longer with us, RIP Robin Williams, ( I will never get sick of him). It is nice to have a station cheer up your day and it has so many times! Thanks Pandora for giving me so many options and letting me listen for free, even though I have to endure a few commercials here and there, and usually it's just one and it's back to the station. Keep up the good work, you've made my world a better place!! 🎤 🎶💃🏼🎶🎼
New Pandora = AWESOME; Selfish Fat Society Gonna Hate
by GuitarBoyOriginal on 2013/03/17 15:29
I can't believe all the selfish negative reviews from people who apparently were raised to say "me me me" and "give me more things I don't have to pay for." Are most of you haters overweight? Do you ever exercise between mouthfuls of burgers and pie? What, did you all vote for Obama? He wants free stuff too and doesn't want to balance the national budget or reduce the debt. To those of us who bothered to read the news when it first came out, Pandora was created at enormous expense and research by way of their pre-launch music genome project. Plus, before going live, Pandora had to sign contracts with music artists to PAY THEM FOR THE STREAMING OF THEIR MUSIC FROM DAY ONE. This was years ago. Pandora is still free and now there is a cap per month. Anyone who doesn't like it can pay $3.99 per month. About the cost of one burger you downed in about 2 minutes flat while you could have been exercising. Haters need to get a life. Thank you Pandora for the FREE service. Ignore the haters, they won't pay anybody, they have a large appetite for drama and just like to whine, and again, most of them are overweight and have no idea what to do about it, so their are subconsciously taking it out on you, Pandora. I heart Pandora and will probably upgrade to the $3.99 per month for ad-free listening.
This is getting aggravating...
by Gt: Urokinase on 2013/10/30 17:17
Ok so, I love, and I mean, LOVE Pandora!! Best app I've ever had, especially because I love music. Music is my best friend, but lately Pandora has been getting on my nerves. For the past couple days, at 12:30 to like 1:25 IT DOES NOT WORK. It would just all of a sudden not connect and it would just stop working. It would claim the network isn't working... And trust me, I am not an idiot with electronics. I did a lot of tests to see what was wrong. Now keep in mind, this problem is on my iPad. So, first, I killed it and tried to open it up again; it didn't work. Next I tried to use the internet on another app to see if it was the internet, it wasn't because all the other apps worked comepetely fine. Next, I tried using the Pandora on my phone, and it worked! At this point, I was getting pretty frustrated... Next I tried killing it and restarting again, but it still didn't work. Then I tried restarting my iPad and it STILL DIDN'T WORK. I came to the final conclusion of uninstalling it and reinstalling it. Since it wasn't connecting, I couldn't log in until later that day. But I do love Pandora, it's introduced me to a lot of new music genres and songs!! I use it all the time... its crazy. but since it doesn't work like that, its veeeerrrryyyy annoying... -_- please fix then i'lll give u guys a 5 star :D thanks, hope this helps. bye
My preferred streaming music app
by Lilyheart9 on 2015/07/25 14:04
I absolutely Love Pandora. I've been using it for years, and have my stations dialed in pretty well according to musical genre. The only station that seems a bit "off" in its algorithmic formula is my Queen station. It's the most recent addition to my list, and I'm surprised that it offers very few of Queen's songs in the playlist. I also give a "thumbs down" every time "Hey Jude" plays on every one of my stations. I love The Beatles, but I cannot stand this one song, yet it keeps showing up for some reason (hoping it will change my mind? Not! Lastly, I use the free version, because I don't normally mind hearing an occasional ad, but I absolutely hate getting bombarded by singles ads. If I have to be subjected to ads, can you at least allow me to give a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" to the content? These are just three small gripes. Overall, I love Pandora and will remain a faithful listener. I buy songs off of the link provided while the song is playing all the time, and have amassed a nice offline playlist too. I will likely move to the paid version once I trade in my car - I have a paid subscription to a competitor that I can take or leave. I just can't justify paying for two music subscriptions at this time. Thanks for being so awesome, Pandora!
Absolutely Spectacular App!
by Ryan Barnhill on 2015/10/21 22:12
Hands down the most spectacular and well created app of all time when it comes to the category of music! As there are many ads, the fantastic music played every track makes up for every bit of it! Many people complain about the ads but I have to say thank you for them! Because the ads is the reason why this app stays free you guys! Without the ads implemented in the app, just imagine having to pay for the app regardless if we want premium or not!! Thank you so much to the creators of this app. It is hands-down my all time favorite music app! It reunites me to music I have not heard in a very long time, and when I hear it, I realize it's been one of my favorite songs in my past that I would have loved to hear again, and would have NEVER though of the song name, regardless of the band, to ever hear the song again. Also introducing me to new bands similar to my favorite bands? This app cannot get any better! Thank you so much for the work and updates brought to this app!! And I'm so excited to use this app for the rest of my mobile life to listen to what I actually WANT to listen to! 5 STARS ALL HANDS DOWN NO EXCEPTIONS!! Could not get any more perfect than this app right here! Recommended to everyone who has a great since and taste in music!
Good... But
by ScottishGlassLady on 2015/12/18 15:55
The good: huge range of music and I like that it does function like a radio station- I never know what I'm going to hear, but it is within my genre. $5/month to go ad-free is eminently affordable. The bad: the ads have gotten outta control. Seriously. They play at a louder volume than my music, making them a sensory jolt sometimes. They are way more frequent and they are (amusingly) for things I would never ever do or buy. It's almost funny because the music is tailored to you that the ads are just crap thrown at a wall to see what sticks IMO. Also, hearing the same song 3x in a day if I have a narrowly focused radio station. "Women in comedy" was great until I listened for over 40 hours... And then repeat after repeat. Also, if I've thumbed down something, it would be nice if Pandora didn't immediately follow it up with 2-4 other tunes that a) are the same exact sound distillation (like multiple banjo pieces in a row on a station that includes about 30 artists by now, only 4 of whom are strictly bluegrass) or a few pieces in a row by the same band... Whose sound I just told you I wasn't keen on. So yeah, it's a good app for the money, but I think it could be a lot better. Especially if they (at Pandora) are still touting it as the "music genome project" wherein "if you like this, we think you'll like that too based on people's data." I can't stand to use it for free anymore though. Ads.
Pandora going down hill for me....
by April_Coleman on 2013/03/20 02:28
I loved Pandora when I first downloaded the app and I still do now but it freezes up a lot. And most of the time when you search a specific artist, for ex. Ed Sheeran it will play maybe 1 or 2 songs by him and the rest of the songs are random artist. Its called Ed Sheeran radio for a reason, just saying. Im not sure if there is anyway you guys can fix that problem but if you can, please do so. Also, im really not liking that you guys giving only 40 hours of music. You just started this and this month I only have 5 hours left for March but I didnt know about the 40 hour thing till yesterday. And I liked Pandora better than any other radio app because you didnt have to pay for it and because it played good music but now you guys are doing this hour thing and then on top of that your charging if you want to continue listening after the hours are up. I understand that you need to make money from Pandora but could you atleast give more hours. I don't know if you've noticed or not but music is very important and has been for a long time so I think there shouldnt be a limit on music. And my final issue is the amount of commercials there are, its really annoying when you have to stop your music to watch dumb commercials. We see them all on TV. Could you please lessen the amount of commercials, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Works well, but no social network integration and some other dumb oversights
by LastSilmaril on 2012/11/08 18:47
I have suffered none of the issues others have mentioned here. Thumbs up and thumbs down work just fine. Skipping songs limitation is inherent to Pandora radio overall, and is the fault of the labels, not Pandora itself. The app is mostly well designed, but there are a dew dumb oversights. One is the lack of integration with Facebook or Twitter for sharing songs with friends. More importantly, the track names often appear very long and truncated, or replaced by a variant of the album artist name and album name. You can bookmark a song but not view the bookmark to find out what the full track name is; I don't really care about viewing bookmarks so much in and of itself, but something should be done about the track name situation. Lastly, searching for song on iTunes from within the app appears to supply iTunes with the album name, not the track name. That's just a silly oversight, given the level of polish the rest of the app exudes. I don't really use iTunes either, but it seems like a feature that they should be able to get right in an iOS music app, given how many people do use iTunes. Also, and this is more of a suggestion, I think the higher quality audio option should be enabled by default on non-phone devices, where data usage and most likely connection quality aren't really issues.
Pandora remains the best app of its kind
by Lymang on 2015/10/29 11:36
So it's been a long time (years?)since I wrote my initial review and it seems only fair to give it another go. My only initial complaint was the presence of ads but that's not really a valid criticism in this day and age and with the evolution of Pandora as a service. The honest truth of it in my opinion is that no one does this as well as Pandora, and their iPhone/iPad app is about as ideal as you can ask for. I switched to the VERY reasonably priced premium version of the Pandora service and I have no complaints. I think my sub fees are going to licensing fees - or I hope so. I know that Pandora has a huge selection and broad swath of artists and genres, I rarely have a problem finding someone I want to hear on Pandora. Any issues I have with Pandora now have nothing to do with the app, and are related to their algorithm for selecting appropriate music based on my seed selection or search criteria. E.g. I have a channel for female rappers. Despite thumbing ONLY songs with female lead vocalist/rappers (probably 50, maybe as many as 100) the algorithm still often gives me songs with no female vocalists (that I thumbs down of course). And there you have it. Great app. Great service(with some pickiness issues on my side)!
I love Pandora, but this is just garbage
by Kyle918 on 2008/07/18 18:55
Pandora is a great application with a LOT of potential. Its main and actually its only drawback that I can see is that if you hit the home button...the application closes!! Why is that? Every application is like this. We iPhone users multitask. The iPhone is such a great phone, but yet, its so one dimensional. It can only run one program at a time. What a waste. The only thing you can close and still have running is the iPod on iPhone. I just don't understand why you would have the application quit on pushing the home button. I mean, God forbid you get a text message and you have to close your music and start over again once you re-enter. It's a busy world out there and it's highly annoying to render my iPhone useless while listening to my favorite music on Pandora. The only problem is that I think that this is Apple's fault. I don't think that they allow any of the apps to run in the background. Supposedly this is because Apple fears the battery life will be shortend. Well Apple, obviously I don't care about battery life if I am willing to have my iPhone in use for about 6 hours a day. It's not complicated to charge it! If I was so worried about battery life I would end calls after a minute not use internet or have my wireless set to on everyday all day and never use the speaker to play music aloud. Get over battery life and allow background processes. "KB"
All The HaTeRz Are poor Non-SubscriberZ
by RåTçHēT on 2013/06/07 00:09
All the haters of Pandora can't pay for a subscription. Ooops did I say that?! Been a paid subscriber 3 years in a row. Took me only a couple days to realize the value in a subscription to satisfy my eclectic taste in music. I have over 40 genre related stations customized by rigid monitoring of what plays, utilizing the thumbs up and down, as well as customizing the "station seeds". The effect of the stringent quality control allows me to enjoy countless listening hours of a vast array of music. Pandora has introduced me to countless undiscovered tracks (for me), and that says volumes because I come from a family of DJ's as well as having friends in the with years digging for music in the DJ industry. I also appreciate the concept and effort put into "The Music Genome Project". It has allowed Pandora to become MY PERFECT DIGITAL DJ !!! Love the background info on most artists. Very well written original material. If you notice the ratings, there is pretty much a simple divide. People either love it or hate it. View the haters, they're mostly non-subscribers. At $36 a year, that's less than a tank of gas, an eighth of weed. Only $3 a month. If you have a smart phone, tell me why u can't afford that? To me PANDORA IS UNDENIABLY WORTH IT, period.
Each Update Brings Something New
by Old Deleted Account on 2013/05/22 18:43
Each update brings something new, and this one is no different. I love what you've done with today's update, but I still have one request that only your website can show: which song is playing off of which station. For example, I have 5 total stations based off of genre, and I'm very particular to know which song is playing off of which station as some songs that are best suited for one genre station plays on another as well. Every time I thumb up a song, I have to go back to my station list, look through the station that I intended to thumb it up in and, if it's not, I have to look in the station(s) that I think that it was thumbed up in and either delete it or thumb it down (assuming it's still in my recently played music history that shows until you force quit the app). If you guys can add this, then you're gold (as they say)! It would make things so much easier for people like me who are nitpicky about what we thumb up and where. Oh, and as a side note, it would be great if you made your desktop app more like the mobile one for iOS and put it in the Mac App Store. That would be great! Keep up the good work and I look forward to what you have to offer in the future!
Best music one bug
by Bright1Owen on 2014/08/19 03:47
Do I need to explain how amazing this app is?!?! I love pandora I'd rate it 5 stars but I know those ratings don't get as much attention. I have a big report and a suggestion. First the suggestion; add a bug report on your help menu you'll get a lot more help thy way and improve software an more. Now for the bug, I've noticed that whenever I listen to music especially over cellular data instead of displaying the length of the song remaining it displays a large number like 39hrs and 20 minutes and some seconds, I assume this is how much music I've listened to but to be honest I'd rather see how much longer I have on my song, if you could fix this bug I'd be grateful. Additionally some further suggestions would be a skip counter, and (I know this won't happen but) give the ability to temporarily download a preselected amount of time of music like an hour and a half that can download ahead of time so I don't have to use data when I'm at the gym or running. I know that's far fetched incase someone tries to steal the music but me and u know that'd happen anyways, so if u do decide to consider it make the amount of time variable but maybe cap at some large amount like 6hrs and make it so the music auto deletes after a song has been heard. Just think about it it'd save money data time, etc. it could be another form of persuasion for pandora one which is too expensive now for what limited services it provides!!! Thanks love a pandora one customer
Good music, horrible ads and UI
by Motown08 on 2015/09/03 00:57
I absolutely love using Pandora and find that their playlists are quite diverse, but almost always consist of exactly what I'm looking to listen to. For that, Pandora gets 4.5 stars. The reason for the 2 star rating is in part due to their increase in ads, and not just those that come up when you're listening. The formatting for ads on your screen that now take up almost the entire screen and have the smallest 'x' button is horrible. I'm constantly accidentally clicking on the ads when I try to close them and then get accosted by Pandora asking me to rate them. 😡 Further, of the ads that play during your listening sessions, some of them have evolved to be politically motivated or personally offensive ads (most currently those touching on the Iran Nuclear deal). As such, I feel like there should be a way to report offensive content or dismiss ads that aren't catered towards you. Of course there is little motivation to improve this experience since it should be a motivator for the purchase of a Pandora subscription, but it is nonetheless infuriating that Pandora has been turning into a political targeting platform when I really want to listen to music. I would be willing to change my rating if Pandora issued some updates addressing the size of the ads on the screen, their increased frequency, and ways to report offensive content.
Why do you guys complain so much
by Ethan Isaiah Chaney on 2016/09/23 03:10
Why do you guys complain so much. There is an app that lets u listen to FREE music. Y'all act like there is no catch. This app is amazing! There is a great variety, u just have to customize your station! Yes you can do that. Y'all say there's no variety but y'all probably don't even look at the full app first. I like Soundcloud too but this app is way better. You don't have to sit there and make a playlist, u can put in ur favorite songs or artists and as many different one as you want and then it plays all the music you could possibly ever want! Yes, adds are annoying but you have to remember that real people make real money off these adds and in return they let us listen to thousands of dollars worth of music, for a 30 second ads. Btw if one pops up and you don't want to wait for the add to go away, just click on a different station and then click back to the one you were listening to, don't be mad Pandora just trying to help. This is my favorite app, I delete and reinstall/download other apps all the time and yet I've had this one for a very long time. Thank you pandora for being patient even tho your customers aren't and thx for making an amazing app.
Best music app bar none...from Cooper
by Sir-Cooper on 2016/07/31 16:31
I can always find music on Pandora's app to lift my spirits - it keeps improving all the time - keep up the great job...Thanks Another review and yes still the best music app out there. I can't understand others complaining about the ads after all it's free. I actually read and watch the videos that come with the ones I am interested in. Just a suggestion cut the price in half and reduce the ads by half of what the free version is now to give another option. I think you could get more to join such as younger kids that can't afford the full version. Or even older people such as I am at 68 years of age. With the lower price version just give a bit more options. I spend a lot of time setting while having my kidney dialysis done 3 days a week so money is tite for me but a reduced version I could afford. Plus I can't sleep at night from the pain I am in so I listen to your app with my ear buds on-it's amazing how much your app helps pass time. I have tried so many music apps but none come close to yours. I can't Thank You enough for making my life more tolerable. I would love to pay and could at a lessor version yes even with some ads. Again Thank You
My savior has come.
by djsmartie1227 on 2011/08/15 03:45
I recently lost my favorite jazz radio station in Orlando, and I've been looking for an alternative. Pandora has exceeded my expectations. I've placed all my favorite jazz artists into one station, and it's created a station ten times better than the one I lost. As for the ads, I love them, because they are getting me free access to all kinds of great music. My father works in radio advertising, and the fact that they are able to provide us with free radio with so few ads is abosolutely incredible. For anyone complaing about the ads, go listen to a real radio station some time, because I think you've forgotten how many commercials there are. Our local radio stations do 15 minutes of commercials PER HOUR, and one of the breaks they take is 10 MINUTES LONG. If free radio means an ad from Subway comes up every 8 songs or so, I'll take it no questions asked. Heck, I might even try out that sandwich Subway was advertising! It looked delicious! I have no faults with this app, no complaints, just 100% praise. Thank you for introducing me to some great music, as well as giving me the sure to be soundtrack for my new dorm room in just two weeks. I highly recommend this app to any lover of music of any kind!

I was fortunate to discover pandora long before most people. I have never been disappointed by their program or updates. I still enjoy the free version, and while yes, it does seem there are quite a few more commercials than there were years ago, if it really starts to bother me the simple solution is to buy the app. My only critiques would be to work on the initial song variety when creating stations based on a certain band or genre. An example being the Delta Rae station I created. They are compared, in almost every review I've read, to Fleetwood Mac, based on there song writing, 4 part harmony, etc, yet I've never heard Fleetwood on that station. I do utilize the "add variety" feature but feel that maybe there could be some improvement there. Also the song rotation within all "stations" has room for further development. I have created many stations and I can predict exactly which songs I will hear on each because the selection has not changed despite new music continually coming out. Aside from that, I have always considered myself to be very fortunate to have access to so much beautiful music. I am sure that I will be a user for a long time :)
Please read pandora!

Please and thank u. What I want to keep it fresh. Make it easer for me to give a thumbs up or down so I don't have to take my phone out my pocket every time I want to like a song. Have it be a new update and have a on and off toggle switch for people who may not want to use the new feature to quick like dislike songs toggle switch. Trust I'm a dj and I love using pandora my goal is May be work for pandora one day. I'm sure that's only up to the lucky ones in the world or book smart people. But I feel blessed and I want to bless pandora with a new toggle switch witch I would think the world would love. A easy way to go back to my account and see all the like's I'v made in that run. Use the mic clicker as a quick twice to thumbs up and three times to thumbs down. Trust I want to see pandora thrive and inspire for years to come. I believe music inspires people you. It be cool to get a response back I would think I'm not that lucky out of a million likes my message would be read and may be read again. My name is ANTONIO I'm from LBC CA look me up I'm face book I'm not hiding it be cool if u found me I know your smart enough to find me and contact Me. I have a lot of ideas I'd like to share
I love the Personalized Music, BUT...
by Pelipen on 2014/11/24 01:34
...BUT there are 2 things I don't appreciate: 1) The pre-written "kudos" for my review! I can speak for myself! and 2) a $5/month fee, for PandoraOne, just to avoid annoying ads and have a few extra "skips" per day (who really cares?) is ridiculous!! It's greedy and unnecessary!! I'm going to cancel my subscription! It's a waste of money. I'll deal with the ads! MOST apps will offer a one-time upgrade to eliminate irritating ads, but not this one!! Pandora wants you to pay and pay and pay! I think Pandora is far too greedy! I would've rated this app at 5 stars, because it is, overall, a sensational "radio" app, but I am less than satisfied with how Pandora operates, with supreme control. I've emailed 4 suggestions to improve the app (such as capability to add specific artists/songs and hear them at demand). Each time I received a "Sorry, No dice." response. They really don't want to hear any feedback, so don't waste your time and effort! Other than this, if you want to take the time and energy to "train" this app to play only the music you want to hear, nothing surpasses Pandora. I truly enjoy the music they offer! It's a GREAT concept...but poorly controled. Just agree to play by THEIR rules and you may love it!
WOW
by Whoreheezy on 2009/02/03 08:47
I always read comments and reviews, but never ever wrote my own, thats until now. I've never tried Pandora before or knew what it was but decided to give it a shot, just to add a radio station to my iphone. I quickly and easily made an account with pandora and created some stations. My favorite one is my Chromeo station. It's given me alot of songs within the same style and most of the songs are just great. It really knows my taste in music and what I'm looking for. It's all I've been using the last couple of days. its not perfect but its almost here....what stops it from being the perfect application is the fact that you can't put it in the background and use other apps. It is really frustrating when I get a text or need to look up something in another app and the music just stops. I've read why Apple made the decision for this, to save battery life. thats cool I guess, but maybe they should leave that up to us if we want to use mulitple apps at the same time or not.....besides that one and only complaint, this apps is amazing and i love how its always connected. edge, 3g or wifi, you'll always be connected to Pandora. amazing......and best thing about all this......IT'S FREE!!!!!

I would like to start with the fact that I have been using pandora radio since I bought my first iPhone some time in 2008. In the long run I have seen many improvements or updates that have passed through Pandora as an app. The recent 40 hour limit listening is a real disappointment and I am hoping that the second time around testing this limit fails and it is once again taken away. Maybe this is the company's way of pushing the purchase of this application I am not sure. I would also like to see an ability to download the songs that I enjoy listening to. Maybe rewarding clients who listen regularly with a free song download for listening to them constantly instead of limiting the service provided. Lastly I'd like to touch on something specific to the iPad application. I like the ability to see the lyrics to the songs that are being played and am unable to specifically on my iPad. Please make this simple change as it would only improve customer satisfaction. In conclusion I hope that Joe Kennedy's Successor is for the improvement of Pandora and is able to grow customer satisfaction. My overall satisfaction has been steadily decreasing and the new additions/restrictions are not helping to keep the free version of the application at the top of free application software.
runs on wifi and the 3G network seamlessly
by Bruce Radaikin on 2009/07/08 17:08
The coveted 6 star rating... I love it!!! One of the best free apps, no wait, one of the best apps on the iPhone... I thought I would have some issues with streaming but no... plays just like my ipod... The sound quality is full... It sounds like your playing a cd on a great sound system... Does it matter that I'm using this app on my new 3GS? I don't know. Some reviews stated that they had some issues with the update. Have not had any problems myself. Just great music. Put in one of your favorite artists and get songs from that artist (i.e. Beatles) along with other similar styled artists. A great way to be introduced to music that you may not have initially thought about checking out. Thumb down feature lets you goto the next song and I guess knows not to play that song again for you(I'm not sure about that as a feature, does anybody know?). Yes, it's true that you cannot run this app in the background... Just like all the other 40,000 third party apps. If you want music in the background while running other apps you can play your ipod, eventually Apple will have to let third party applications do the same. Keep up the great work Pandora Radio.
A wonderful gift to the world!

Amazing repertoire of all kinds of music! Wonderful, intuitive search engine rewards the listener with delightful new discoveries and priceless, sometimes forgotten old treasures. Notes on music and composers make it a great musical educational and discovery tool for all ages. This app is a true treasure!!! Pandora Support rocks as well! I was in process of deleting/re-installing all ITunes apps from my macbook and Iphone, but for some reason had trouble "re-purchasing" a couple apps, including Pandora. My email to Pandora Support was answered in LESS THAN 90 seconds by Esteban, who explained that since Pandora currently has "no age rating" (ie- 4+, 12+) in the ITunes store, the parental controls on my computer and/or Iphone were blocking the function of the "get app" button in the store and the subsequent re-download on the Iphone. Temporarily de-activating parental controls solved my 're-purchase' problem of all 3 apps impacted! Visual ads are clear but small and unobstrusive..... wise decision as I scan them out of gratitude for subsidizing Pandora but would ignore them if they interfered with the music experience. THANKS PANDORA and all Pandora staff!!!! You truly gift the world with beauty.
Great app!
by warcraft_parker on 2013/06/05 22:41
I keep reading these reviews that give one star due to the waiting period for skipping, the FB sharing, ads, etc, and am baffled on how much complaining people can do because of these features! I've purchased the PandoraOne service, which gets rid of the ads, and I've never been happier with Internet radio. I don't use the FB sharing, but know others use it and respect it being there. I hardly notice the two second waiting period, as my life doesn't need a second-by-second regulation on what is going on...and I usually allow the song to play a few seconds as it is to hear what it is, or what version it is. That being said, if you don't like features, don't use them, it won't kill you that they are there. Though I am still giving it 5 stars, there are a couple small features that I would love to see implemented. If there is a music video associated with a song, it would be awesome to have an external link to it, or have it play with the song. Next, having a back button on songs played, even if it was one song, would be nice. I've accidentally hit the 'next' button too quickly and skipped a song I love, and kick myself for doing so. Happy jamming!
Great app, but has some flaws
by Eggo in LA on 2008/07/13 22:04
Pandora does what it's supposed to do - builds a customized radio station that learns your preferences and offers new music that you might like. For that, it's perfect, and it's amazing that it's free. However, there are some problems with the initial version of the app. It is very easy to exit the program, and once you do, it kills it. For example, if you have to hit the home button to do something else, the app shuts off. If you get a phone call, the app shuts off. It would be better if you could set Pandora to run in the background so you could multi-task. You do get reception over the Edge network, but sometimes it will cut out for 5-10 seconds. Most of the time though, it is usable over Edge, which is great for free. Over wi-fi, I've never had it cut out on me. The final 'problem' is this app is a battery hog. Granted, you are streaming and transmitting data constantly, so this is to be expected to a certain degree. I listened to the radio for about an hour over Edge and I was shocked to see my non-3G iPhone battery was about 1/4 gone. If you're over Wi-fi or 3G, the battery drain will probably be worse. If you have a charge cable with you wherever you go (so battery life is not a problem), this app is great.
Simply the Future of Radio
by Kee Hinckley on 2008/11/26 16:02
Nothing else matches Pandora's music matching algorithms. Pick some mellow instrumental piece as a seed and you'll get the perfect soundtrack for bedtime. Throw three completely different artists at it and you'll get a playlist that alternates between those styles. Use it as a game on long car trips, seeding playlists with obscure songs or artists and seeing where it goes. On Halloween I created a playlist simply seeded with The Monster Mash and got back a station consisting almost entirely of Haloween-appropriate tunes; songs about vampires and ghosts and wolfmen, ranging from Rocky Horror to Live Potion #9. Lately I've had to drive the family several times from Massachusetts to Michigan and back; 15 hours in the car. No futzing with radio stations. No worrying about whose favorite songs are on the playlist; we just take turns with Pandora. I even completely befuddled my father by creating a station of old cowboy country tunes for him. That said, Pandora on the iPhone needs one thing, and only Apple can provide it. Lobby Apple for background playing. In the meantime, an in-app browser would be nice for those times I want to look something up on the web without turning off the music.
Good at first
by mspinelli2000 on 2014/04/07 20:26
Pandora works very well at first. Plays songs similar to what you suggest, and usually brings in some obscure stuff that you wouldn't know of otherwise. I have been using pandora for years now at this point, and the main problem I've encountered is repeating. It seems like there's a loop of songs associated with one another, and when you make a station and listen to it continually, at some point it just starts to replay the songs but in a different, slightly varied order. This is especially troublesome if you give a 'thumbs up' to a song. It seems like as soon as I do that to ONE SONG, it gets stuck on that one song and completely changes the nature of the station based off of that one song. For example, if I'm listening to a non-red hot chili peppers station, and they play a RHCP song that I like and I give it a thumbs up, the station turns into just a RHCP station and really limits the options for songs. This is not that big of a deal if you just don't thumbs up or down a song, and just let it play and skip if you don't want to hear a song. Other than that, works super well and has exposed me to some of my favorite songs/artists over the years. Still use Pandora regularly and will continue to do so.
Pandora paid subscriber
by Jgame24 on 2015/09/29 01:37
I have been a paying Pandora subscriber for 3 years now. Let's get some things out of the way now. First, there are many different options out there for streaming music with some being better then others. Pandora for me gives allows me to listen to and explore many different musicians from many different genres without having to do very much. I get bored very easily and love the wide range of music Pandora provides by simply typing in a song or artist I like. Second, if you want to listen to exact songs or albums from artists then this company is not for you. Lastly, Pandora does repeat songs and artists. If you think there is a never ending supply of new songs and artists then your wrong. You need to keep on exploring genres and artists which is part of the experience. Pandora is well worth the price to me given I use it in my car, train and for every party I host. Everyone is always happy by the variety of music and the sound quality is great. One more thing to mention, when going through a tunnel I use to get immediately cut off. Now they allow enough of the song to load/buffer for me to finish a complete song even without a signal. Keep up the good work Pandora.
Pandora
by Hector Hernandez on 2015/01/06 05:35
I love pandora I can have any kind of music when it comes to my dancing and I have to practice I go to pandora and look up ballet jazz hip hop tap and I have the music in less then a min. When it comes to listening music with my friends I just listen to my tween radio. If I need a love song I go to my prince Royce radio, I guess I can count on pandora if I ever need music or think of music I click or think of pandora. I literally use music all the time so I guess I use pandora all the time. For example chores I have music homework I have my music on or I guess pandora on taking my showers well that's a little tmi, to much info but it's true . The best part about pandora is that it has mixed up songs not repeating the same song over and over again that's why I love pandora so many different songs from different artists and I learn new artist which is amazing cause I learn new songs. Ok well u see my point how amazing pandora is if it didn't exist then I would have to listen to the same songs over and over which to me is boring it would be horrifying, well that's how much I love pandora 😍😚😘😚😙😗😉😊☺️💛💙💜💚❤️💗💓💕💖💞💘💌💋that's all I have to say now back to my music
A truly great application
by brncndlr on 2008/08/24 03:44
I was curious when downloading this app, as usually internet based radio is flawed in some way. Pandora lets you create up to 100 stations by entering a band or song name, then that station will try to match you up with similar music to your selection. So far it has been very accurate with what it thinks I will like. If you don't like a song it gives you, you can give it a thumbs down. Two thumbs down to the same artist will ban that artist from your station. A thumbs up will let the program know you approve of this artist. By taking the info you give it, it can really tailor a station to your specific tastes. However, even without any thumbs up/down inputs, the stations are great already. You can skip songs, but only 6 times per hour, not too bad when it gives mostly good music. Also, using Pandora does not block incoming calls, you will be interupted by the ringer, and taken back to the same song when finished with your call. Awesome! All they need to do now is work with Apple to allow this app to run in the background with any task in iPhone. I would definitely pay for that feature. (This review references version 1.1)
Great music with terrible interface
by Foxyshadis on 2012/02/18 05:08
Pandora can be so incredibly frustrating sometimes, when you're driving and all you want to know is what that awesome song you just heard was... But it plays so much awesome stuff, more than any other radio app. Hell of a conundrum. I don't care what anyone says, I loathe ads of all sort, so I paid and I'm much happier with the app now - especially since I can skip all the crappy tracks I want. It plays great quality music on the cell network, has massively expanded its catalogue, and consistently turns me on to great music (when I can bookmark it in time). If you can't bookmark by the end of the song, you're screwed. I'm sick of the UI problems: The iPad doesn't allow you to see your bookmarks anywhere. The iPhone app also has completely different interfaces in portrait and landscape since a recent version; I much preferred the old unified interface. There is no way to bookmark or thumbs up a song in the iPhone's history (landscape mode), and the history routinely disappears when you try to view it. None of the pandora interfaces, including web, track your overall song history, which is a huge mistake in my opinion; I want to come home and see what I listened to in the car, instead of lunging for the phone and trying to bookmark it in time.
Love Pandora, but.....
by Watersideglass on 2014/10/07 13:40
I've been with Pandora since the beginning and I love what you guys do, but it has become incredibly annoying recently how often songs I will press the "dislike" button for will end up popping back up again not even an hour or two later!!!! Please, please, I understand you guys have certain contractual obligations, but this has become annoying to the point where I have begun shopping around for alternatives for Internet radio. I know as well that in not the only one with this complaint and I know many who's decision to leave Pandora was prompted in part by this feature. Please, please if there's any way at all that you could ensure that when a particular song is disliked on a station that it NEVER re-appears on that station, you would make this customer and many others very happy and much more inclined to continue being paid subscribers. Perhaps even have a "dislike list" on the full browser version so that customers can go through it if they choose and reverse previous decisions? It's not that we never want to listen to it again sometimes, but I assure you, your customers don't generally magically change their minds in the space of an hour and to repeatedly have to dislike a song until we have done it so much that we are locked from further skips is maddening to say the least.
The most!!!!
by mtandh20 on 2015/06/11 13:33
As a technologically challenged person, this is a superior way to listen to music, fall asleep with relaxation music, awaken to inspiring music or even put some 60s, beautiful Christian hymns, current top hits, or anything you could even think of to set a station on. Phenomenal is an understatement for Pandora! It is so worth the cost per month! As noted before, you can advance it, high 5 it, or trash it if that particular song is not to your liking. They do an incredible job of matching up like genre as well. If that is not enough, they also have incredible reviews written by people giving bio information which also includes historical musical history. And, if that's not enough, you can click on an album cover in the discography and sample tracks - and even leave a comment. Obviously it took a while for me to learn that tapping on the little items or the artist name or album title would take me into another realm and a fabulous app. You certainly get your money's worth but more than that an opportunity to enjoy an expansive realm of music that will surely satisfy every person's particular desire to listen to. Enjoy and relish the opportunity:-) You'll never regret it!
Do not upgrade to pandora plus
by Lo23lo on 2016/10/25 18:12
I have had pandora plus for a few years now and with the new update I was SO excited to have unlimited skips...it's total bs on Pandora's part. I've been hoping ever since the update they would have another to fix the many bugs but nope! Since the update the station a song will randomly stop working or skip to a different song without me even touching my phone. Or it gets halfway through a song before cutting out and seeing that my song has been paused with again, nothing touching the phone. When I hit play on my phone the song starts back from the very beginning and then will pause at the same exact spot. It will do this over and over again...real annoying when a great song comes on and you can only listen to the first 30 seconds of it on repeat. I was already paying for pandora plus for years before the update and it worked great but DO NOT pay for pandora plus now, their update obviously has tons of problems and it is not worth it. Pandora seems to get worse and worse with every update which is very unfortunate, they used to be great but I've finally decided to cancel my subscription after years and years of subscribing. It's not worth it, it's a rip off, and the company isn't honest about what is included. Incredibly disappointing.
