Pandora's Ghost
by EdTheReal on 2017/02/26 06:10
I loved Pandora but ever since the last the last update (2/21/17) all of a sudden my iPhone 6 starts playing the Pandora app. It will sit on my table and suddenly start playing music and the only way to shut it down it activate the app and then close it. Twice it's embarrassed me in a meeting and in court. I finally deleted the app.
Newest update
by SwaggyDaddy10010 on 2017/02/26 06:02
The newest update made my phone not even load pandora. What I mean is it just shows the P not all the station
Hopper
by Love sleeptime!! on 2017/02/26 05:59
Needs a view previous song feature on the Dish Hopper other than that love me some Pandora!!! Hit it with the 5 stars when it get up on that!
Had to delete
by Mpfaff on 2017/02/26 05:46
Been a pandora user for years, but these past few days every time I'd plug my phone into my kenwood head unit it would open and start playing pandora no matter what I had it set on. Since I don't want to listen to pandora constantly and would rather listen to my own music or a podcast I had to delete this app to stop the frustration.
Love Pandora
by Tam Iam on 2017/02/26 05:40
I am not the most technologically savvy and had to wait for my son to put the app on my new phone. I didn't realize how much I listened until I was without and I was missing my music. Hey q I love Pandora.
Good but....
by 29PMagMoose on 2017/02/26 02:49
Okay Pandora.... I'm becoming more and more disappointed with your service. I pay monthly so that I can listen to music I love anywhere, at any time, and on my devices! While I appreciate you warning me that someone else or another device is listening under the same account, I don't like it at all. It's annoying. I've also noticed that when I thumb up or down a song, the selection of similar songs becomes extremely limited and I hear the same songs over and over again. Pandora you need to step up your service especially for those who are paying customers
Make it so i wouldn't need my home
by Trumpster2017best on 2017/02/26 02:46
I wish I could just save the music so I wouldn't need my phone and the music would be on Apple Watch

Good app
by Jethro Tuwl on 2017/02/26 00:39
Plays a good mix of music. Too many commercials. Oh well.
Great app
by Someone answer this please on 2017/02/26 00:31
The only problem is that it always ask if I want the free trial which gets annoying but other than that it's great.
Commercial are too LOUD
by laxifist on 2017/02/26 00:31
You broke my subwoofer with the LOUD commercials you run. It's inconsiderate to blast my ears with out-of-proportion volume levels for commercial gain.
Broken After 2/22 Update
by MLMB07 on 2017/02/26 00:29
Since the last update on 2/22 Pandora has randomly started playing on its own. Have to delete the app until the problem is fixed.
More advertisements than music
by Plfucwuviiu on 2017/02/25 23:29
I used to like pandora but now I can't stand it. They have more ads than ever and it's not even worth it. I listed to two ads then two songs then another ad!! The ads are also really annoying, like they have some with alarms going off and that's not pleasant when I'm trying to study or not expecting it. Considering ditching pandora for good, i can't stand ads every two songs and immediately after opening the ap to begin with. Not cool pandora.
Great stuff
by Bwfutball on 2017/02/25 23:17
All day every night!
Two songs two 30 second ads what a joke.
by Glitchy and crashes. on 2017/02/25 23:16
Wayyyy too many ads. Ads in picture not enough so they play ads ever couple songs
Pretty great
by GREAT GAME ;P on 2017/02/25 22:49
I wish i had the premium but for free
App starts playing unprompted
by Anar Seyf on 2017/02/25 22:46
Hey guys, there's a bug in the current version: the app starts playing music at random times, without any user input. This happens even after killing the app. It also happens when another audio source, like Podcasts, is playing - in that case the other source gets stopped.
Cool tune
by Clarence. 1637 on 2017/02/25 22:33
It wonder to listen to these cool tune as I do my algebra and drink my wine this the way of higher education in in the 2100 century
Get songify instead
by Mason-sama okami-sama on 2017/02/25 21:53
This app used to be the best, but now it's just basically a bunch of commercials playing on loop with a little music.
This app is listening and selling your private info!
by Howismynametaken on 2017/02/25 21:45
I launched pandora while getting ready one morning. The first thing that popped up on the app was an ad for the exact cup in my hand...there is absolutely no way this was coincidental and not the first time it has happened. They either have access to our cameras or microphones without requiring consent.
Love
by My baby's my life on 2017/02/25 21:16
I love being able to play what ever I feel like when the mood calls for it.
Fix new update
by 30000000 on 2017/02/25 21:12
I'm a paying customer and I use pandora so I can get school work done and listen to music on the same device I used to be able to go out of the app and do work but still have music playing but now once I go out of the app the music stops playing
Whare are my stations????
by This blows a little on 2017/02/25 21:09
Like seriously all of my stations are gone wth pandora??!!!??!
Awesome!!!!!
by Mamamamamamalachi on 2017/02/25 20:43
Good stuff and music except it does have some ads if you don't get the newest kind of software called pandora plus 😎
Not cool...

I've always loved pandora. But lately it's been acting pretty bad. Bugs def need to be fixed!
I love it!

Previous Controls Bug Was Fixed

Only suggestion is to bring-back the old and simpler Pandora with the grey, not white, app icon.
5+ Stars!
by SmokeySuzie on 2017/02/25 18:00
I could not be happy on my commute without Pandora. Best app on my phone!!
Why
by Thejt4 on 2017/02/25 17:50
The last update was stupid they always show there ads for pandora premium or whatever it is
Get it
by Dakine99 on 2017/02/25 17:06
Pretty much a necessary app if you like to discover music within your tastes and preferences. If that's not you, good luck getting through life without a soul, yo.
Great except a lot of advertisements
by Some person that is alive on 2017/02/25 16:25
Pandora is great but there are a lot of advertisements which is okay but they are a lot of the same ones and it is very repetitive. 🤷‍♀️
Rocking out since 2009🤘🏻🔊
by Buckeye chris on 2017/02/25 16:03
Update 2/27 Im starting to have some issues with the Pandora app. 90% of the time Im using the app in my car or work truck connected through Bluetooth. Now every time I get a text or even a notification on my iPhone the music stops and the app crashes! I have to pickup my phone while driving to restart the app so I can start the music again. This just started with the last update and it's getting very frustrating doing this over and over again. Before the the app would always stay running, pause the music for a few seconds, then start playing again. Also when connected the Bluetooth the music would always start playing automatically and not have to unlock my phone. I see other people having this issue so please address and fix this Pandora then its back to five stars! Im close to canceling my pandora one subscription. 5/2016- I wanted to update my review for Pandora. A few months ago I subscribed to Pandora one ($4.99 a month.) I am very happy with this decision. I was about finished with Pandora due to all the ads! However, now not having to deal with all the ads is wonderful and definitely worth the money. The only bad thing I don't like if I choose a certain artist most of the time it's any where between 3-20 songs before I hear another song by the artist. I do enjoy discovering new artist and hearing new songs. I wish there was a way I could change the settings so that majority of the songs were from the artist I have selected. Most of the time when I'm in the mood for a certain artist I really want to hear music from that artist.
Aggravated
by LynSue777 on 2017/02/25 15:49
All of my stations were deleted with this last bug fix! Do you think I remember what they all were? Aaaarrrrgggghhh!
I love it!
by ABWReviews on 2017/02/25 13:43
You can do so much with music. I heard some songs from my favorite band that I didn't even know existed before Pandora, and have diversified my music tastes so much. It works well for the most part, with only minor glitches every once in a while, but all in all it's an amazing app.
Missing playlist
by Woodstock717 on 2017/02/25 13:41
I have had pandora since 2011. I had an extensive library. One day all my playlists came up missing. Still gone and can't find some of the stations I know I had. What happened.
Pandora
by Bubba Buddy boy with teeth on 2017/02/25 13:19
It is awesome but the adds are the same every single time so if you don't like stupid adds playin every time well I think it is worth it so I would recommend it 100 percent
Never had an issue until now
by MrpotatoheadINC on 2017/02/25 07:55
I've pandora since my iPhone 5 never had any issues until this update. It will randomly start playing music with the app being closed. I've tried everything to fix it but nothing seems to work. Please fix this. It's really annoying to be woken up at 2 in the morning by my music coming on
Best music app
by Jdkdidiwnbdjsifieirnbrvrcd on 2017/02/25 06:31
I have been using pandora since I first got a smartphone and have never had and connection issues and have never experienced interruptions in my music. Also it is great at discovery all sorts of new songs like the ones I already love to listen too.
Orgasm killer
by Thilfer on 2017/02/25 04:46
Perfect app to get 95% of the way there then hear an advertisement to kill the mood.
Not enough skips
by Rickey Martin on 2017/02/25 03:14
When I watch a ad for skips it gives me 2 skips and if I watch a ad for replays it gives me 2 replays I and other people are having this problem and I know you should make so it gives you 4 skips when you watch a ad and 4 replays when you watch a ad!!!
Randomly playing songs
by MotoDuc on 2017/02/25 02:42
Pandora started playing music on its own regardless of whether or not the app was running in the background or completely closed. The fix I found online was to delete the app and reinstall, but as soon as I started using the app again it began playing on its own again.
Problems
by Joshy2230 on 2017/02/25 01:01
The service was great until recently, now there are a lot of bugs.
Best thing since sliced bread 😘😘😘
by Live love Bug on 2017/02/24 23:51
I listen all day to these songs and it plays my favorite songs one by one ☝️
Randomly starts playing music!!
by Nattybohme on 2017/02/24 23:39
Don't know what happened but all of a sudden every time I come home Pandora just starts playing music without me opening the app. It must be automatically happening when my phone connects to my home wifi. Pandora comes on the lock screen as playing but when I unlock my phone and double click the home button to show active apps it's not showing as active. Somehow Pandora now has a mine of its own. Isn't this how it started with Skynet???
Pandora
by Sem2018 on 2017/02/24 23:23
When I press on Pandora to listen to music, it won't load and it exits off the app itself
Plays the same songs
by lovemyMady on 2017/02/24 23:11
I've had Pandora for about 5 years so I feel like it knows what kind of songs I like. But it just recycles the same songs over and over. I might hear a new song once or twice a week. Otherwise I have to tell it that I'm tired of the song and use up my "skips". They have also began using video advertisements and streaming video uses significantly more data than simply audio streaming. I like that I can "customize" my music, but I stream so I can have a good variety instead of recycling the same tracks on CD or MP3 download.
Good stuff
by Airrun8 on 2017/02/24 22:59
Well worth the monthly subscription fee.
Last Update BROKE APP

Randomly turns on
by New Living Please on 2017/02/24 21:54
So, I love Pandora. I use Pandora One all the time. After the last update on 2/22/17, though, it keeps randomly starting up. I am not touching my iPhone or any Bluetooth devices and it just starts playing the last radio station I listened to. I even have made sure it is closed in the background.
Has a mind of it's own
by Virulis on 2017/02/24 21:00
Lately the app had been doing things without input from me. It will randomly start playing in the background without opening or connecting to anything. Sometimes it will stop playing completely on its own as well, switching stations seems to temporarily fix it. The watch app will take a very long time to start up sometimes.
Randomly starts playing
by SoccerReader on 2017/02/24 20:29
The last few days the app will just randomly start playing music, luckily this only happened at home and has not resulted in insulting anyone. I am uninstalling now and will only give it another chance when they hire professionals who can do a decent job of coding, what a pathetic joke.
Randomly Plays now after update
by Panda96er on 2017/02/24 20:11
Now the app just randomly plays now while I'm on my phone. I close it out and it still does it.
Fix this!
by Pandora used to be great! on 2017/02/24 19:40
I'm paying for Pandora plus! Where are my unlimited skips and no ads? Fix this - This used to be a 5 star app.
Annoyed
by JBr@vo on 2017/02/24 18:52
For whatever reason, why is it that when I close any app, Pandora automatically starts playing even tho the pandora app is completely closed....please fix
App starts to play on its own
by Media Baron on 2017/02/24 18:49
The app will just start playing music on its own. If I double-click on the home button it doesn't show Pandora as an active app, it's not on any of the app tabs displayed. To turn it off I have to either launch the Pandora app and stop it or swipe up from the bottom to the music control center to press pause.
I LOVE IT!!!!
by Gillian Chiasson on 2017/02/24 17:37
I love Pandora. It is so much better then I Heart Radio!!! 😍😍😍
Starts playing for no reason
by C Yeater on 2017/02/24 17:24
After the last update pandora started playing immediately and I didn't think much of it. At 1am while sleeping pandora started playing all by itself. Next day while at work I'm listening to a podcast and it stops and pandora starts playing. I deleted the app then reinstalled then restarted my iPhone and once again listening to a pod cast the next day pandora starts. It is now deleted until a new update is released.
To many commercials
by General Jimmy on 2017/02/24 17:13
Pandora plays way to many commercials now .. like every other 5 songs they play a couple commercials and there's no way in getting around them ... I downloaded this app to avoid commercials from the radio .. now it's like there's no difference anymore .. it feels like they play so many now it's just pushing to to play for the app ..
Buffering ad Naseum or Cannot Connect
by Sbb13 on 2017/02/24 17:09
Would really love some live help on this one. Unable to use Pandora at all. Between buffering, frozen or unable to connect… Truly disappointed.
Pandora update issues
by love_child_65 on 2017/02/24 16:58
I love Pandora but will have to delete if it doesn't get fixed! The app starts playing music on its own! Scared the crap out of me! I left my phone on the desk at work and came back find Pandora had started on its on. Not cool, please dix asap!
Autoplaying for no reason since 2/21 update
by Jon.O. on 2017/02/24 16:55
My Pandora App has been auto paying randomly throughout the day since the most recent update. I always ensure the app is closed out in the background yet somehow music still starts playing randomly. In a meeting, music! Walking down the street, music! Problem is I didn't ask for it to play. Also I have had times where volume is so low I didn't notice playing for a number of min/hrs which eats my data unnecessarily. Fix this asap Pandora.
Good but a bit buggy
by CinderyFrame101 on 2017/02/24 16:16
This app is good but I encountered a little bug. When I'm not using the app at all, it somehow out of nowhere automatically starts playing music I don't know what's the deal behind that but it does get annoying from time to time.
Jhjjj
by Hshdidbfbdib on 2017/02/24 16:11
Don't like how I have to listen to a commercial to replay a song and run out of skips.there is not enough control for a user unless u pay to upgrade to pandora plus
Good?
by ryomsny on 2017/02/24 15:18
Is simply something that we could all get used too.
it only available on USA ,Australia and New Zeland
by i.TAD on 2017/02/24 13:48
I do not like it at all as its service is only availabe in USA,Australia and New Zeland and also it has fewer songs & skip numbers comparing to Spotify & Apple Music

stop changing my station!!!
by brbholdmyweave on 2017/02/24 12:19
the app is good but most of the time the station gets messed up. if it's a fall out boy radio station it'll eventually turn into a whole nother artist's station with 1 or 2 fall out boy songs mixed in but the alarm option is excellent
I love pandora
by Phone die do on 2017/02/24 12:19

Why can't I stop the music??
by Vitupero on 2017/02/24 12:18
What a mess. The latest version plays music. However it won't stop either. I have to kill the app to get it to stop. The pause button no longer seems to work. I have deleted and reinstalled the app and the problem continues. Disappointing
New update is not good!!!
by Nickawa on 2017/02/24 12:04
Had to delete app!!!Music starts on its own without the app even running in the background!!! Pretty annoying at work!

Can't retrieve Plus subscription
by Mjhtgfrghj on 2017/02/24 10:04
The link to retrieve my Plus subscription doesn't work. Clicking Upgrade just tells me I already have a subscription. My only option there is to Manage(cancel). Got a few more days in the month for this to work and then Cancel it is!
Sick of the "bug fixes" pushed in the last update
by rogerleggewie on 2017/02/24 08:44
Since I updated to the latest version of the app music (from random stations from what I can tell) just starts play about once or twice an hour. I've uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and not I'm uninstalling it all together. VERY frustrating when you're in a meeting with your boss and music starts playing loudly from your pocket regardless of being on vibrate or not.
Love it
by PlainTalk23 on 2017/02/24 07:56
You're the One
To many adds!
by WalkingDeadArmy on 2017/02/24 07:24
I'm not buying the pandora plus or whatever it's called now, but at least block porn adds, I clicked on a "new snapchat" add and it turned out to be an add to "play" with milfs
Normally love this app
by Me mutha fkka on 2017/02/24 06:51
After update my music starts to play randomly even when I have pandora completely closed out. I restarted my phone and it helped for a little bit but now it started doing it again and more frequently. 5 stars once fixed. If not fixed soon I will be deleting this app and canceling my monthly subscription
Ridiculously loud commercials
by CAMA-SS on 2017/02/24 06:01
When a commercial comes on it blows my ear drums out.
Despite recent bug fixes app constantly crashes
by LukeTheBook333 on 2017/02/24 05:15
Whenever pausing music for five minutes, exiting the app to visit another one, or letting a Bluetooth device autostart music - Pandora reloads and starts a fresh playlist instead of retaining the original song that was playing when going back into the app With the most recent update, the app now randomly starts playing music without opening it, which makes for a really awkward experience at work
Horrible update. App starts itself randomly and with CarPlay
by yonnage on 2017/02/24 04:59
Congrats! Latest update forced me to uninstall the app. App was randomly starting it self. When plugging into CarPlay it always took over and started playing. Was making my phone very irritating and was forced to uninstall.
Usurper!
by VorJoshigan on 2017/02/24 04:40
I haven't opened up the app in a year, and now it starts itself up every timer I get in the car. Unfortunately I'm usually playing a podcast at the time. Bye.

What a Useless mess Greedy as hell
by Me1953453 on 2017/02/24 04:03
Why isn't there a minus 3 or 4 rating? Skip limit is 1 or 2? What the hell is going on? Maybe I'll pay for it!? Right!! What kind of fool would?

If you use something everyday, it becomes a part of you. I wonder if someone exists that would never let you go, in spite of your actions or behavior...just ask! Thank you pandora!
Horrible update!!!!!
by Bigfoonkrits on 2017/02/24 03:25
Since the update Pandora starts for no apparent reason. This happened during a meeting and my daughter's play. I have loved Pandora, but fear I will need to delete the app and unsubscribe from my premium services if this isn't fixed ASAP!!!!
Started from the bottom now I'm here!!!
by HHP4LIFE on 2017/02/24 03:16
Does it really get any better than this!?! It doesn't matter what kind of mood or attitude I am in or what neck of the woods I'm at... Pandora is where it's at- for real, for real!!! Love me some music, Pandora 24/7!
Have to listen music I don't like ! Why?
by Alishkaya on 2017/02/24 02:49
I don't mind to listen or see an ad but why does Pandora forces people to listen whole song. I know they make money from the author but why not just giving a skip feature. I am just letting them know that I deleted my account and app just for that reason.
Vehicle/accessory interface -- ** fixed!
by AC_Texaco on 2017/02/24 02:40
February's update fixed the vehicle integration problem! I'm listening and liking Pandora again! ---- I subscribe to Pandora specifically because my car has a Pandora interface, which works only intermittently since the latest app update. I see that others are having the same problem. Please fix this!
Only one person can listen at a time
by Rorytea on 2017/02/24 02:09
Only one person can listen at a time so I can't share our pandora one with my husband anymore. I am very disappointed in pandora. We will be switching to a different ad free radio.
Where's the music ??? Way too many adds!!!
by Rating App on 2017/02/24 01:42
Don't even get more than 2 songs without hearing the my pillow ads, switching over to iHeartRadio!
Last update stops auto play on Bluetooth
by diegowarrior on 2017/02/24 00:56
I used to be able to get into the car and pandora used to start automatically on the last song it was playing. Not anymore, now I have to manually open the app. Also the volume goes down when Google Maps is giving directions at the same time. Please fix it.

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!!
Fantastic - Needs a But More World Music But Getting Better
by darkraistlyn on 2017/02/19 17:14
Title pretty much says it all. Especially music from Korea. It is becoming much better, but still leaves much to be desired. More Japanese pop as well would be fantastic - especially that found on anime, as I'm sure many folks will be drawn into that genre of music initially from that medium. One of my largest complaints is the discrepancy of the search between what Pandora actually seems to have. I have looked for a particular song a few times to have it continually return nothing only to have it pop up on a station later on. Searching for the same song later on still said it didn't exist. I had to wait months for one particular song - Lindsey Stirling's Phantom of the Opera medley - to come around on a station so I could make a station out of it. It may have been updated by now, I haven't checked since. To be fair, over all, these are minor complaints. I more say these things to alert the developers than to dissuade anyone from using the app. It is an excellent resource for music. I do hear the complaint you can't choose exactly what you want to hear at that time. You can hear pretty close to the thing you want, and frequently my favorite songs are played. But you never get to choose on a radio, either. I am a premium subscriber for $5 a month, so whenever those songs come on I can just replay them to my heart's content. However, you cannot skip endlessly, but you can skip further than normal. Keep it up, guys!
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!
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.
by Zachary03038 on 2015/10/31 01:34
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!
Last update screwed everything up
by JoJo Mahamma on 2017/02/23 09:23
Update Same day 45 minutes later after resetting my phone seven times turning it on and off and resetting the app trying all sorts of things I eventually stopped 15 minutes go by I go back to the app it works thanks a bunch 🤙🏻 it must've been an internal server error thanks for fixing it. It will only play one song then freezes and I cannot pause the music even if I take my headphones out the music keeps playing through the speakers and vice-versa then and could not replay songs that say I can being a Pandora plus subscriber hope you guys fix this soon I don't want to have to cancel my subscription! Fix it now please!!!! I'm not happy with your current service have to exit the app then re-enter the app just to get to the next song🤦🏻‍♂️uaaaahhhhhhh just fix it! I have an iPhone 7 not plus i've got the newest version of iOS (10.2.1) so there should not be any problems other people seem to not have these problems I have T-Mobile so that could be the problem I'm using my Wi-Fi though so this should not be a problem at all just trying to give you as much information as possible so you may be able to figure out what the problem is I can't because I don't seem to understand what's going on.
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!
Long time listener
by Aubsnsiahsmom on 2014/09/26 14:59
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.

Pandora's Ghost
by EdTheReal on 2017/02/26 06:10
I loved Pandora but ever since the last the last update (2/21/17) all of a sudden my iPhone 6 starts playing the Pandora app. It will sit on my table and suddenly start playing music and the only way to shut it down it activate the app and then close it. Twice it's embarrassed me in a meeting and in court. I finally deleted the app.
Newest update
by SwaggyDaddy10010 on 2017/02/26 06:02
The newest update made my phone not even load pandora. What I mean is it just shows the P not all the station
Hopper
by Love sleeptime!! on 2017/02/26 05:59
Needs a view previous song feature on the Dish Hopper other than that love me some Pandora!!! Hit it with the 5 stars when it get up on that!
Had to delete
by Mpfaff on 2017/02/26 05:46
Been a pandora user for years, but these past few days every time I'd plug my phone into my kenwood head unit it would open and start playing pandora no matter what I had it set on. Since I don't want to listen to pandora constantly and would rather listen to my own music or a podcast I had to delete this app to stop the frustration.
Love Pandora
by Tam Iam on 2017/02/26 05:40
I am not the most technologically savvy and had to wait for my son to put the app on my new phone. I didn't realize how much I listened until I was without and I was missing my music. Hey q I love Pandora.
Good but....
by 29PMagMoose on 2017/02/26 02:49
Okay Pandora.... I'm becoming more and more disappointed with your service. I pay monthly so that I can listen to music I love anywhere, at any time, and on my devices! While I appreciate you warning me that someone else or another device is listening under the same account, I don't like it at all. It's annoying. I've also noticed that when I thumb up or down a song, the selection of similar songs becomes extremely limited and I hear the same songs over and over again. Pandora you need to step up your service especially for those who are paying customers
Make it so i wouldn't need my home
by Trumpster2017best on 2017/02/26 02:46
I wish I could just save the music so I wouldn't need my phone and the music would be on Apple Watch

Good app
by Jethro Tuwl on 2017/02/26 00:39
Plays a good mix of music. Too many commercials. Oh well.
Great app
by Someone answer this please on 2017/02/26 00:31
The only problem is that it always ask if I want the free trial which gets annoying but other than that it's great.
Commercial are too LOUD
by laxifist on 2017/02/26 00:31
You broke my subwoofer with the LOUD commercials you run. It's inconsiderate to blast my ears with out-of-proportion volume levels for commercial gain.
Broken After 2/22 Update
by MLMB07 on 2017/02/26 00:29
Since the last update on 2/22 Pandora has randomly started playing on its own. Have to delete the app until the problem is fixed.
More advertisements than music
by Plfucwuviiu on 2017/02/25 23:29
I used to like pandora but now I can't stand it. They have more ads than ever and it's not even worth it. I listed to two ads then two songs then another ad!! The ads are also really annoying, like they have some with alarms going off and that's not pleasant when I'm trying to study or not expecting it. Considering ditching pandora for good, i can't stand ads every two songs and immediately after opening the ap to begin with. Not cool pandora.
Great stuff
by Bwfutball on 2017/02/25 23:17
All day every night!
Two songs two 30 second ads what a joke.
by Glitchy and crashes. on 2017/02/25 23:16
Wayyyy too many ads. Ads in picture not enough so they play ads ever couple songs
Pretty great

I wish i had the premium but for free
App starts playing unprompted
by Anar Seyf on 2017/02/25 22:46
Hey guys, there's a bug in the current version: the app starts playing music at random times, without any user input. This happens even after killing the app. It also happens when another audio source, like Podcasts, is playing - in that case the other source gets stopped.
Cool tune
by Clarence. 1637 on 2017/02/25 22:33
It wonder to listen to these cool tune as I do my algebra and drink my wine this the way of higher education in in the 2100 century
Get songify instead
by Mason-sama okami-sama on 2017/02/25 21:53
This app used to be the best, but now it's just basically a bunch of commercials playing on loop with a little music.
This app is listening and selling your private info!
by Howismynametaken on 2017/02/25 21:45
I launched pandora while getting ready one morning. The first thing that popped up on the app was an ad for the exact cup in my hand...there is absolutely no way this was coincidental and not the first time it has happened. They either have access to our cameras or microphones without requiring consent.
Love
by My baby's my life on 2017/02/25 21:16
I love being able to play what ever I feel like when the mood calls for it.
Fix new update
by 30000000 on 2017/02/25 21:12
I'm a paying customer and I use pandora so I can get school work done and listen to music on the same device I used to be able to go out of the app and do work but still have music playing but now once I go out of the app the music stops playing
Whare are my stations????

Awesome!!!!!

Good stuff and music except it does have some ads if you don't get the newest kind of software called pandora plus 😎
Not cool...

I've always loved pandora. But lately it's been acting pretty bad. Bugs def need to be fixed!

Only suggestion is to bring-back the old and simpler Pandora with the grey, not white, app icon.
5+ Stars!

I could not be happy on my commute without Pandora. Best app on my phone!!
Why
by Thejt4 on 2017/02/25 17:50
The last update was stupid they always show there ads for pandora premium or whatever it is
Get it
by Dakine99 on 2017/02/25 17:06
Pretty much a necessary app if you like to discover music within your tastes and preferences. If that's not you, good luck getting through life without a soul, yo.
Great except a lot of advertisements
by Some person that is alive on 2017/02/25 16:25
Pandora is great but there are a lot of advertisements which is okay but they are a lot of the same ones and it is very repetitive. 🤷‍♀️
Rocking out since 2009🤘🏻🔊
by Buckeye chris on 2017/02/25 16:03
Update 2/27 Im starting to have some issues with the Pandora app. 90% of the time Im using the app in my car or work truck connected through Bluetooth. Now every time I get a text or even a notification on my iPhone the music stops and the app crashes! I have to pickup my phone while driving to restart the app so I can start the music again. This just started with the last update and it's getting very frustrating doing this over and over again. Before the the app would always stay running, pause the music for a few seconds, then start playing again. Also when connected the Bluetooth the music would always start playing automatically and not have to unlock my phone. I see other people having this issue so please address and fix this Pandora then its back to five stars! Im close to canceling my pandora one subscription. 5/2016- I wanted to update my review for Pandora. A few months ago I subscribed to Pandora one ($4.99 a month.) I am very happy with this decision. I was about finished with Pandora due to all the ads! However, now not having to deal with all the ads is wonderful and definitely worth the money. The only bad thing I don't like if I choose a certain artist most of the time it's any where between 3-20 songs before I hear another song by the artist. I do enjoy discovering new artist and hearing new songs. I wish there was a way I could change the settings so that majority of the songs were from the artist I have selected. Most of the time when I'm in the mood for a certain artist I really want to hear music from that artist.
Aggravated
by LynSue777 on 2017/02/25 15:49
All of my stations were deleted with this last bug fix! Do you think I remember what they all were? Aaaarrrrgggghhh!
I love it!
by ABWReviews on 2017/02/25 13:43
You can do so much with music. I heard some songs from my favorite band that I didn't even know existed before Pandora, and have diversified my music tastes so much. It works well for the most part, with only minor glitches every once in a while, but all in all it's an amazing app.
Missing playlist
by Woodstock717 on 2017/02/25 13:41
I have had pandora since 2011. I had an extensive library. One day all my playlists came up missing. Still gone and can't find some of the stations I know I had. What happened.
Pandora
by Bubba Buddy boy with teeth on 2017/02/25 13:19
It is awesome but the adds are the same every single time so if you don't like stupid adds playin every time well I think it is worth it so I would recommend it 100 percent
Never had an issue until now
by MrpotatoheadINC on 2017/02/25 07:55
I've pandora since my iPhone 5 never had any issues until this update. It will randomly start playing music with the app being closed. I've tried everything to fix it but nothing seems to work. Please fix this. It's really annoying to be woken up at 2 in the morning by my music coming on
Best music app
by Jdkdidiwnbdjsifieirnbrvrcd on 2017/02/25 06:31
I have been using pandora since I first got a smartphone and have never had and connection issues and have never experienced interruptions in my music. Also it is great at discovery all sorts of new songs like the ones I already love to listen too.
Orgasm killer
by Thilfer on 2017/02/25 04:46
Perfect app to get 95% of the way there then hear an advertisement to kill the mood.
Not enough skips
by Rickey Martin on 2017/02/25 03:14
When I watch a ad for skips it gives me 2 skips and if I watch a ad for replays it gives me 2 replays I and other people are having this problem and I know you should make so it gives you 4 skips when you watch a ad and 4 replays when you watch a ad!!!
Randomly playing songs
by MotoDuc on 2017/02/25 02:42
Pandora started playing music on its own regardless of whether or not the app was running in the background or completely closed. The fix I found online was to delete the app and reinstall, but as soon as I started using the app again it began playing on its own again.
Problems
by Joshy2230 on 2017/02/25 01:01
The service was great until recently, now there are a lot of bugs.
Best thing since sliced bread 😘😘😘
by Live love Bug on 2017/02/24 23:51
I listen all day to these songs and it plays my favorite songs one by one ☝️
Randomly starts playing music!!
by Nattybohme on 2017/02/24 23:39
Don't know what happened but all of a sudden every time I come home Pandora just starts playing music without me opening the app. It must be automatically happening when my phone connects to my home wifi. Pandora comes on the lock screen as playing but when I unlock my phone and double click the home button to show active apps it's not showing as active. Somehow Pandora now has a mine of its own. Isn't this how it started with Skynet???
Pandora
by Sem2018 on 2017/02/24 23:23
When I press on Pandora to listen to music, it won't load and it exits off the app itself
Plays the same songs
by lovemyMady on 2017/02/24 23:11
I've had Pandora for about 5 years so I feel like it knows what kind of songs I like. But it just recycles the same songs over and over. I might hear a new song once or twice a week. Otherwise I have to tell it that I'm tired of the song and use up my "skips". They have also began using video advertisements and streaming video uses significantly more data than simply audio streaming. I like that I can "customize" my music, but I stream so I can have a good variety instead of recycling the same tracks on CD or MP3 download.
Good stuff
by Airrun8 on 2017/02/24 22:59
Well worth the monthly subscription fee.
Last Update BROKE APP

Randomly turns on
by New Living Please on 2017/02/24 21:54
So, I love Pandora. I use Pandora One all the time. After the last update on 2/22/17, though, it keeps randomly starting up. I am not touching my iPhone or any Bluetooth devices and it just starts playing the last radio station I listened to. I even have made sure it is closed in the background.
Has a mind of it's own
by Virulis on 2017/02/24 21:00
Lately the app had been doing things without input from me. It will randomly start playing in the background without opening or connecting to anything. Sometimes it will stop playing completely on its own as well, switching stations seems to temporarily fix it. The watch app will take a very long time to start up sometimes.
Randomly starts playing
by SoccerReader on 2017/02/24 20:29
The last few days the app will just randomly start playing music, luckily this only happened at home and has not resulted in insulting anyone. I am uninstalling now and will only give it another chance when they hire professionals who can do a decent job of coding, what a pathetic joke.
Randomly Plays now after update
by Panda96er on 2017/02/24 20:11
Now the app just randomly plays now while I'm on my phone. I close it out and it still does it.
Fix this!
by Pandora used to be great! on 2017/02/24 19:40
I'm paying for Pandora plus! Where are my unlimited skips and no ads? Fix this - This used to be a 5 star app.
Annoyed
by JBr@vo on 2017/02/24 18:52
For whatever reason, why is it that when I close any app, Pandora automatically starts playing even tho the pandora app is completely closed....please fix
App starts to play on its own
by Media Baron on 2017/02/24 18:49
The app will just start playing music on its own. If I double-click on the home button it doesn't show Pandora as an active app, it's not on any of the app tabs displayed. To turn it off I have to either launch the Pandora app and stop it or swipe up from the bottom to the music control center to press pause.
I LOVE IT!!!!
by Gillian Chiasson on 2017/02/24 17:37
I love Pandora. It is so much better then I Heart Radio!!! 😍😍😍
Starts playing for no reason
by C Yeater on 2017/02/24 17:24
After the last update pandora started playing immediately and I didn't think much of it. At 1am while sleeping pandora started playing all by itself. Next day while at work I'm listening to a podcast and it stops and pandora starts playing. I deleted the app then reinstalled then restarted my iPhone and once again listening to a pod cast the next day pandora starts. It is now deleted until a new update is released.
To many commercials
by General Jimmy on 2017/02/24 17:13
Pandora plays way to many commercials now .. like every other 5 songs they play a couple commercials and there's no way in getting around them ... I downloaded this app to avoid commercials from the radio .. now it's like there's no difference anymore .. it feels like they play so many now it's just pushing to to play for the app ..
Buffering ad Naseum or Cannot Connect
by Sbb13 on 2017/02/24 17:09
Would really love some live help on this one. Unable to use Pandora at all. Between buffering, frozen or unable to connect… Truly disappointed.
Pandora update issues
by love_child_65 on 2017/02/24 16:58
I love Pandora but will have to delete if it doesn't get fixed! The app starts playing music on its own! Scared the crap out of me! I left my phone on the desk at work and came back find Pandora had started on its on. Not cool, please dix asap!
Autoplaying for no reason since 2/21 update
by Jon.O. on 2017/02/24 16:55
My Pandora App has been auto paying randomly throughout the day since the most recent update. I always ensure the app is closed out in the background yet somehow music still starts playing randomly. In a meeting, music! Walking down the street, music! Problem is I didn't ask for it to play. Also I have had times where volume is so low I didn't notice playing for a number of min/hrs which eats my data unnecessarily. Fix this asap Pandora.
Good but a bit buggy
by CinderyFrame101 on 2017/02/24 16:16
This app is good but I encountered a little bug. When I'm not using the app at all, it somehow out of nowhere automatically starts playing music I don't know what's the deal behind that but it does get annoying from time to time.
Jhjjj
by Hshdidbfbdib on 2017/02/24 16:11
Don't like how I have to listen to a commercial to replay a song and run out of skips.there is not enough control for a user unless u pay to upgrade to pandora plus
Good?
by ryomsny on 2017/02/24 15:18
Is simply something that we could all get used too.
it only available on USA ,Australia and New Zeland
by i.TAD on 2017/02/24 13:48
I do not like it at all as its service is only availabe in USA,Australia and New Zeland and also it has fewer songs & skip numbers comparing to Spotify & Apple Music
GOING INSANE
by Megan McQuade on 2017/02/24 13:05
EVERY TIME I HEAR THE ANTI SMOKING AD I GO INSANE BECAUSE IVE HEARD IT SO MANY TIME FROM THIS APP THAT I LOVED BUT NOW HATE.
stop changing my station!!!
by brbholdmyweave on 2017/02/24 12:19
the app is good but most of the time the station gets messed up. if it's a fall out boy radio station it'll eventually turn into a whole nother artist's station with 1 or 2 fall out boy songs mixed in but the alarm option is excellent
I love pandora
by Phone die do on 2017/02/24 12:19
It lets me relax and just calm down. 😌
Why can't I stop the music??
by Vitupero on 2017/02/24 12:18
What a mess. The latest version plays music. However it won't stop either. I have to kill the app to get it to stop. The pause button no longer seems to work. I have deleted and reinstalled the app and the problem continues. Disappointing
New update is not good!!!
by Nickawa on 2017/02/24 12:04
Had to delete app!!!Music starts on its own without the app even running in the background!!! Pretty annoying at work!
Very good app

Can't retrieve Plus subscription
by Mjhtgfrghj on 2017/02/24 10:04
The link to retrieve my Plus subscription doesn't work. Clicking Upgrade just tells me I already have a subscription. My only option there is to Manage(cancel). Got a few more days in the month for this to work and then Cancel it is!
Sick of the "bug fixes" pushed in the last update
by rogerleggewie on 2017/02/24 08:44
Since I updated to the latest version of the app music (from random stations from what I can tell) just starts play about once or twice an hour. I've uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and not I'm uninstalling it all together. VERY frustrating when you're in a meeting with your boss and music starts playing loudly from your pocket regardless of being on vibrate or not.
Love it
by PlainTalk23 on 2017/02/24 07:56
You're the One
To many adds!
by WalkingDeadArmy on 2017/02/24 07:24
I'm not buying the pandora plus or whatever it's called now, but at least block porn adds, I clicked on a "new snapchat" add and it turned out to be an add to "play" with milfs
Normally love this app
by Me mutha fkka on 2017/02/24 06:51
After update my music starts to play randomly even when I have pandora completely closed out. I restarted my phone and it helped for a little bit but now it started doing it again and more frequently. 5 stars once fixed. If not fixed soon I will be deleting this app and canceling my monthly subscription
Ridiculously loud commercials

When a commercial comes on it blows my ear drums out.
Despite recent bug fixes app constantly crashes
by LukeTheBook333 on 2017/02/24 05:15
Whenever pausing music for five minutes, exiting the app to visit another one, or letting a Bluetooth device autostart music - Pandora reloads and starts a fresh playlist instead of retaining the original song that was playing when going back into the app With the most recent update, the app now randomly starts playing music without opening it, which makes for a really awkward experience at work
Horrible update. App starts itself randomly and with CarPlay
by yonnage on 2017/02/24 04:59
Congrats! Latest update forced me to uninstall the app. App was randomly starting it self. When plugging into CarPlay it always took over and started playing. Was making my phone very irritating and was forced to uninstall.
Usurper!
by VorJoshigan on 2017/02/24 04:40
I haven't opened up the app in a year, and now it starts itself up every timer I get in the car. Unfortunately I'm usually playing a podcast at the time. Bye.

What a Useless mess Greedy as hell
by Me1953453 on 2017/02/24 04:03
Why isn't there a minus 3 or 4 rating? Skip limit is 1 or 2? What the hell is going on? Maybe I'll pay for it!? Right!! What kind of fool would?
Great!
by Suenur on 2017/02/24 04:03
I love the variety.
Loyal Companion
by GODDIED4U on 2017/02/24 03:31
If you use something everyday, it becomes a part of you. I wonder if someone exists that would never let you go, in spite of your actions or behavior...just ask! Thank you pandora!
Horrible update!!!!!
by Bigfoonkrits on 2017/02/24 03:25
Since the update Pandora starts for no apparent reason. This happened during a meeting and my daughter's play. I have loved Pandora, but fear I will need to delete the app and unsubscribe from my premium services if this isn't fixed ASAP!!!!
Started from the bottom now I'm here!!!
by HHP4LIFE on 2017/02/24 03:16
Does it really get any better than this!?! It doesn't matter what kind of mood or attitude I am in or what neck of the woods I'm at... Pandora is where it's at- for real, for real!!! Love me some music, Pandora 24/7!
Have to listen music I don't like ! Why?
by Alishkaya on 2017/02/24 02:49
I don't mind to listen or see an ad but why does Pandora forces people to listen whole song. I know they make money from the author but why not just giving a skip feature. I am just letting them know that I deleted my account and app just for that reason.
Vehicle/accessory interface -- ** fixed!
by AC_Texaco on 2017/02/24 02:40
February's update fixed the vehicle integration problem! I'm listening and liking Pandora again! ---- I subscribe to Pandora specifically because my car has a Pandora interface, which works only intermittently since the latest app update. I see that others are having the same problem. Please fix this!
Only one person can listen at a time
by Rorytea on 2017/02/24 02:09
Only one person can listen at a time so I can't share our pandora one with my husband anymore. I am very disappointed in pandora. We will be switching to a different ad free radio.
Where's the music ??? Way too many adds!!!
by Rating App on 2017/02/24 01:42
Don't even get more than 2 songs without hearing the my pillow ads, switching over to iHeartRadio!
Last update stops auto play on Bluetooth
by diegowarrior on 2017/02/24 00:56
I used to be able to get into the car and pandora used to start automatically on the last song it was playing. Not anymore, now I have to manually open the app. Also the volume goes down when Google Maps is giving directions at the same time. Please fix it.
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!!
Fantastic - Needs a But More World Music But Getting Better
by darkraistlyn on 2017/02/19 17:14
Title pretty much says it all. Especially music from Korea. It is becoming much better, but still leaves much to be desired. More Japanese pop as well would be fantastic - especially that found on anime, as I'm sure many folks will be drawn into that genre of music initially from that medium. One of my largest complaints is the discrepancy of the search between what Pandora actually seems to have. I have looked for a particular song a few times to have it continually return nothing only to have it pop up on a station later on. Searching for the same song later on still said it didn't exist. I had to wait months for one particular song - Lindsey Stirling's Phantom of the Opera medley - to come around on a station so I could make a station out of it. It may have been updated by now, I haven't checked since. To be fair, over all, these are minor complaints. I more say these things to alert the developers than to dissuade anyone from using the app. It is an excellent resource for music. I do hear the complaint you can't choose exactly what you want to hear at that time. You can hear pretty close to the thing you want, and frequently my favorite songs are played. But you never get to choose on a radio, either. I am a premium subscriber for $5 a month, so whenever those songs come on I can just replay them to my heart's content. However, you cannot skip endlessly, but you can skip further than normal. Keep it up, guys!
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!
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.
by Zachary03038 on 2015/10/31 01:34
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!
Last update screwed everything up
by JoJo Mahamma on 2017/02/23 09:23
Update Same day 45 minutes later after resetting my phone seven times turning it on and off and resetting the app trying all sorts of things I eventually stopped 15 minutes go by I go back to the app it works thanks a bunch 🤙🏻 it must've been an internal server error thanks for fixing it. It will only play one song then freezes and I cannot pause the music even if I take my headphones out the music keeps playing through the speakers and vice-versa then and could not replay songs that say I can being a Pandora plus subscriber hope you guys fix this soon I don't want to have to cancel my subscription! Fix it now please!!!! I'm not happy with your current service have to exit the app then re-enter the app just to get to the next song🤦🏻‍♂️uaaaahhhhhhh just fix it! I have an iPhone 7 not plus i've got the newest version of iOS (10.2.1) so there should not be any problems other people seem to not have these problems I have T-Mobile so that could be the problem I'm using my Wi-Fi though so this should not be a problem at all just trying to give you as much information as possible so you may be able to figure out what the problem is I can't because I don't seem to understand what's going on.
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!
Long time listener
by Aubsnsiahsmom on 2014/09/26 14:59
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.

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

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.

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

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.....

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.
