Great App

Ok pandora you have a great app but enough with the Doritos commercials already, every time it comes on I have to change to iHeartRadio.

Good “free” streaming
by ddm/mf on 2020/02/27 04:30
I don’t mind the commercials. It’s nice to have wide selection of songs I like. I wish the CarPlay interface were more reliable though as I mostly use that.
Listening to good music is so relaxing

Update....
by Grandpa2016 on 2020/02/27 03:44
Since the update, I can’t get to my notifications. It says I have one but can’t get to it. I do understand that things need an update but certain things do not need to be. I love the app.
Simply the best
by jeffreyscottbrock on 2020/02/27 02:43
This is still hands down my favorite streaming app. Pick a song or genre and let it rip. I have learned of and purchased more music because of this app. I don’t know of anything else like this.
The best app ever!

Ok so I understand that you guys need the money to keep this app going but I swear it’s so crappy.Ok so first whenever I exit the app,it stops playing my song and then starts playing some random song.I think that’s so stupid and that’s the thing I’m most mad at.I also don’t like this app because it literally almost deleted my WHOLE playlist.Like I don’t know if this is a glitch or this app is just really awful in general.I suggest getting Spotify instead >:/

Better the Spotify
by Laynie07🥰🥳 on 2020/02/27 01:16
I am able to get this app to work at school, home and places with little connection. Where as when I had Spotify it did none of that and would not even connect to my AirPods. It is also way cheaper than any other music app.
Best app ever!!!

I love musics and this is my favorites rite app to listen to it on! A+ on the sound quality and variety!👌🙂
The adds..
by Peanutbutterkitkat on 2020/02/27 00:32
I love the app but the gosh dang adds, I can’t get premium until April and it might just be my dumb phone glitching but my radio stations will play but anything from a free trial won’t it’s just silence, it’s probably my phone and my app already updated so I’m sure what to do exactly but otherwise the app is really good
STOP CRASHING
by nsoega on 2020/02/27 00:00
I’ve had Pandora for awhile now and it’s been great, but recently the app has been crashing by kicking me off the app or by not playing the music. It’ll say that the music is playing but there won’t be any sound! I like this app a lot and don’t mind watching an ad to get temporary premium access so PLEASE fix these bugs so I can get back to listening to my music undisturbed.

More music would help
by Agape Reign on 2020/02/26 19:44
I have not gotten the premium service because you have a limited number of songs you play on my channels. I loop through the same small group of songs. And I’m not sure how some songs get on my stations. They aren’t even in the same genre.
Awesome!!!!
by aaa battery boi on 2020/02/26 19:11

My favorite music app
by Hap!? on 2020/02/26 15:38
This app is the best music listening app for me. It’s great at playing the kind of music I want to listen to when I want to listen to it. The heartfelt country, the shower singalongs, the getting out some anger rock, upbeat cleaning jams, slow relaxing meditation sounds. I have a station for each of these, and more. Because I choose what station tinlisten To based on my mood at the moment, I would love to be able to choose to give feedback for “this station,” for “this artist,” or for “this song.” Some songs I never want to hear, ever, on any station. Some singers/bands I never want to hear ever on any station. Some songs are perfect for the rockin stations and wrong for the chillin stations. I want to be able to specify “thumbs down for this station” versus “thumbs down” or skipping the song leading to the impression that I didn’t want to listen to that song. It depends on what my music mood is what station I’m on and what music I want to hear. Pandora does a great job with stations that play music to fit my mood, this would just bring Pandora up to a new level. I would love to have a station for “broken heart” songs that includes broken heart songs from country, rock, pop, etc instead of the default country genre. This could be applied to so many other emotions, which of course is the place music touches the most! “Pick-me-Up” “Love💗” “🤬 you” “sexy time” “massage/bath relaxation” The list goes on as far as the emotional range of all of the listeners of Pandora. Pandora, you can do this!
Great until glitches
by Hugonias on 2020/02/26 15:34
Have always preferred Pandora to other music apps but have run into various glitches with the app.
Great app. Worth paying for to get rid of commercials
by Schoomista on 2020/02/26 15:31
IT’S BEEN OVER 10 YEARS I’VE HAD THIS AMAZING APP. I’ve been a plus member since day 1, I loathe commercials, that’s why I don’t listen to the radio anymore. My only wish is that I could listen to my stations on more than one device at a time so I can have different stations in every room! Amazing app!
My Fav App
by KARAMEL_KANDY on 2020/02/26 14:07
I love Pandora. I have used it for years and they never fail me.
It’s ok I guess
by gZudud on 2020/02/26 05:56
I like this app there are better apps out there and the only reason i use this app is to get to music I normally reach. It’s ok I guess in a rush I would never use this app because you have to watch an add. But on slow days I would totally recommend it if you haven’t heard a song in a while or you need to pick up on the latest songs. Though I find it hard to find music that I like and the adds are so annoying I just want to listen to my song! I can’t even find my playlist without going on search and watching an add. I must of watched the same add over a hundred Times. I do dance and I can’t let the screen go dark from the other side of the room and then I have to watch the add all over again. I would not recommend this app if you have a short tension span.
Great But Just 1 Problem
by Kenzie M. :) on 2020/02/26 03:45
I love pandora. It’s an amazing app for listening to your favourite songs and I would have given this review a 5 star if it wasn’t for the only issue I’m having. When you listen to an ad to get the free trial to listen to the music if your choice it has a time limit before it times out and takes you back to the radio stations. But sometimes if you close the app before the time is up and you come back after the time is up and you should be back to the radio and ads, it won’t switch over and be stuck on the premium trial. You can’t play music or anything though. It won’t load or anything and there is no way to get out of it inside the app. I have another electronic that shares the same account as mine, and I can usually go in there and it will time out on there and switch it out on my phone but sometimes that won’t work and deleting the app or shutting down the electronic doesn’t work. Idk how to make this not happen, but that the only complaint I have. Otherwise, I absolutely love this app.

Still a good app, but....
by HellSpawn1970 on 2020/02/25 15:30
I’ve been listening to music on Pandora for a while now, and it’s still a good app for listening to music at the gym, but I’ve noticed something: while it’s still playing music that I like, it seems to be from the same four bands, when in the past I heard music from 10-15 bands. Is there some way I can get back to the way it used to be? Help! (Please?)

There’s room for improvement
by Dan Baggerson on 2020/02/25 12:38
I wish that either 1) the artists that actually get played got more money or 2) there were less ads- in particular, the ads for frogging Pandora itself.

It is so amazing that if you have trouble falling asleep at night like me there is a sleep timer so it automatically turns off your pandora. I haven’t slept better in months! 😄 And you always have many options as to what you want to listen to. You can create your own collections and that I love. By the way creator you have made my life so much better and I love you 😘!!!!!!

Just a few things :)
by butterfinger0231 on 2020/02/24 01:12
I really love this app! I love jamming out to my music anywhere. I don’t pay for premium, but the ads really aren’t that bad; they’re actually quite catchy. One of the only problems I have is that you can’t give a song a thumbs up from your lock screen. I don’t know if that is just a thing with my phone, or the app, but it’s kinda annoying to have to enter the app to like a song. One other thing, is that some stations only play like 10 songs I’ve given thumbs and then it plays songs that really don’t relate to the station at all (ex. Disney Children Radio). Other than that I really love Pandora, and would recommend it to everyone :)

by Atoced on 2020/02/24 00:32
Lately the app has been crashing and it’s super annoying. I play one or two songs then it stops playing anything after that. I’ve tried closing out the app and shutting my phone down all together and it still won’t play music. The only way I can get past it is literally deleting the app and re downloading it to get the app to work.

I love this app
by SobbingPuppy on 2020/01/05 00:34
I don’t have the premium plan but nevertheless I would definitely vouch for this app. I recommend this to anyone who wants to jam to their music even with the slight interruption of random catchy ads that you’d surprisingly enjoy. The only thing I can think of that would make one confused or upset is the replay button when you specifically request a song in exchange of a few seconds of advertisement. The replay button within itself does its job; replays continuously until your time is up. On the other hand, when you tap that button twice, to request the song to repeat only once it doesn’t do so. It would replay the song continuously until time is up, which normally doesn’t happen tho because you’d realize it continued more times than wanted. But that can always be fixed, simply by stopping it from replaying by tapping the replay button once more to allow it to go on auto play immediately after or even just requesting another song 😅 Other than that no complaints here, I use Pandora quite literally all the time. Um, thank you for your time, keep it going Pandora!
Good
by IAmTheAdventure on 2020/01/23 18:24
I like pandora, it offers a pretty diverse selection of music. I pay the monthly subscription, so I can look up and play mostly everything except for some up and coming artists for the most part. My biggest gripe is that I cannot search for an artist, listen to an album or song in particular, and give it a thumbs up to add to my “thumbs up” playlist. I have to wait for it to appear in a radio station, and I often listen to music while I’m driving or working and don’t have the time to stop what I’m doing and give it a thumbs up. It would be much easier if I could do that at home and have my thumbs up playlist offering a more accurate selection of what I actually like. I find it ludicrous this isn’t offered. It’s such an obvious part of today’s culture and society, but it isn’t present in this service in a manner that would be most beneficial for a more specific and easier allocation of my favorites. At least I have no advertisements. It only took three years of returning off and on to Pandora to sway me. Also, the offline mode is very nice. Overall I’m pleased with the service. They charge as much as streaming movie services as well, so I hope they are putting forth the highest quality of sound accessible. I haven’t looked into it myself, but it’s nice audio quality for my speakers in the car and at work. Still, I want top notch for how much I’m paying please. It’s important for both the artists and the fans.
App needs so much work
by Waelwulfan on 2019/03/28 21:41
The service itself is great. All of my complaints are with the app and not Pandora itself. 1. App seems to get shut down in the background after only a few minutes if it’s not playing music. Even if you’re not doing anything else with your phone. So when you open it back up, everything needs to reload and whatever song you were listening to is gone. 2. CarPlay issues. OMG, where to begin? CarPlay with Pandora is a disaster. Keeps going from Now Playing back to the Stations screen. Stations don’t load (blank screen) sometimes, forcing you to use your phone to get started. If you change stations or skip songs, sometimes the Now Playing screen will still show the previous song for a good 10 seconds or more, during which time onscreen controls like Pause will not work. 3. Offline songs are noticeably louder than if they’re streamed. Offline mode also seems hesitant to switch back online despite a strong and solid network connection. 4. Ever since Offline mode was introduced, the streaming cache has been severely reduced. It used to cache 3-4 songs. Now it doesn’t seem to cache the next song until the current one is half way done. If you’re in a spotty area and you skip the current song, you’re out of luck. I would happily trade Offline mode to get back a bigger streaming cache.
Pandora’ Disclaimer
by CrystalNWilliams on 2018/09/23 14:51
Allow me start off with how much I utilize Pandora. I have had a Pandora account for at least 8 years. But recently I have purchased the Pandora Premium account. I loved the idea of downloading music to listen to later and I have my own personal music list. I loved the idea of the “Offline” feature as well. But recently I have ran into a few issues. 1 of them being when I switch the offline due to being in an airplane... it only allows me to listen to SOME of the songs even though I have downloaded them. When I go to click on the song it states that it is not allowed for playbacks. 🧐 Sooooo... why was able to download it if I can’t replay it?? 2. Then I was listening to my songs with WiFi and it was telling me that I can’t listen to the songs because they are not allowed for playbacks... so no matter what.... you allowed me to feel like I was given the opportunity to have the song on my playlist BUT I can’t listen to it?? 3. You are able to listen to a lot of songs. You can search for a lot of songs. You can discover new songs.... but you can NOT download a lot of these songs... so my conclusion is... deal with the lack of skips, commercials and keep the free option because it’s not worth what they charge. Very disappointing.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
Nothing compared to Apple Music
by Caleb1744 on 2020/02/05 12:11
There are a lot of adds on Pandora and after paying the smaller subscription (something like $5 a month), I found that I was still limited in what I could do. I was not able to make or edit playlists nearly as well as Apple Music if at all (I never figured it out), the amount of likes and dislikes was also limited. There came several times when I noticed an apparent glitch in the system as well. There was a type of song that continued to play on a certain violin station (Daniel D) that sounded almost like a metronome. I pushed dislike. But then, as if I actually pushed “like”, it played another similar song. Before I knew it, I was listening to nothing but that type of music and patiently disliking every last one. Then I ran out of dislikes. I have noticed that a lot of stations are seemingly preset mostly by popular trends. My likes and dislikes don’t have as strong an influence as they should. Basses on these disappointments, I decided to find somewhere else to get my music. I got Apple Music unlimited for $4.99 on school discount. I have unlimited access to anything - unlimited skips, easily editing of playlists, unlimited likes and dislikes, recommended albums to add to playlists, I can skip to the middle of any song. Pandora served its purpose, but Apple Music, while compared side by side with pandora, is much better.
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
Pandora Plus...has its flaws.
by Courtney4367732 on 2020/02/16 17:39
First of all, with Plus you’re supposed to have the ability to listen to a few offline stations. In theory, it’s supposed to switch to offline mode automatically when you lose cell service or internet access...rarely ever does this happen automatically. Also, of the 4 available offline stations, usually only 1 works. At least a third of the time it will say all stations are unavailable and will play nothing. My second complaint is something that annoys me so much, I’ve been looking into other music services. Even though I pay for ad free and already have Pandora Plus, ads for Pandora Plus pop up constantly! Initially premium ads were coming up, and that’s annoying enough, but then to keep pushing Plus on me when I ALREADY HAVE IT is just too much for me. UPDATE... 2 years later still having the same issue with the switching between offline and online modes. Always messing up or making me do it manually (which is a massive pain due to an update a while back.) makes it very difficult to access this option while driving. Also still says stations are “unavailable” when offline even though I’ve downloaded them. Ugh.
It could be better
by Margaret Kellyyy on 2019/03/10 15:15
I have the premium subscription and overall I’m pleased with the easy to use platform, music selection and the quality of sound. However I do agree with other users that I wish Pandora would give users (especially those that pay for premium) the ability to edit/sort your stations and playlists on your home page. Yes you can filter for your stations or downloaded playlists but I’m pretty particular and I like things to be alphabetical... or the order in which my brain thinks is most logical. But the thing that bothers me THE MOST is the fact that when you pause a song, and lock your phone and walk away for a moment or pause to have a conversation with a coworker and you go back to the app, it acts like you just opened the app and the song you were listening to you, at your favorite part, starts over. What’s with that?! I understand that music apps may be different but the free game apps I have don’t wipe out my progress if I pause the game and “minimize” the app.... why can’t the app I pay monthly for do the same?!?
Thumbprint Overrides Selection
by MrRTB on 2019/12/10 16:21
When I choose an Artist to listen to, I expect the majority of the music for that channel to be the Artist I selected, not just a few. It seems the more thumbprints your choose, the less of the actual artist you want to listen to actually get played. Recently is seems to be maybe 10-15% of the actual artist/musicians channel that is chosen actually gets their music. The only way I can see to fix the issue is to “Un-THUMBPRINT” the individual channels other artist/musician thumbprints to be able to listen to that channels music. The thumbprints should only be used as a guide for using the thumbprint channel itself, or to fill in an occasional selection. There should be no more than 25% of the thumbprint selections on an an individual / group artist / musicians channel except for thumbprint or various selection channels. Perhaps if people prefer thumbprints over the actual artist /musician selected, a setup panel for individuals to choose how much thumbprint they want to listen to Vs actual artist / musician channel would be appropriate. Very frustrated as a main source of listening and won’t subscribe because they (PANDORA) feels they know better about what I want to listen to than I do.
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
No radio zone.
by buddhaman79 on 2019/03/22 19:27
I put off moving from Fl to the backwoods of western North Carolina mostly because there was only talk radio and two country stations (I don’t like country at all) but as fait has it, I moved up here anyway in ‘07 & lived in misery until my first smart phone & finding the Pandora app in around ‘14 & found again what living was again. Than in mid 2017 I was working at a house in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end. I got no service out there & the free Pandora didn’t work out of coarse too. At this point I decided to brake down & get Pandora premium for off line playlist. I have had Pandora premium since that time and have never looked back. I love it, it is my personal radio station. Like I own my own station & can play whatever the hell I want. A few things pop up (can’t play due to licensing) but it’s rare enough & it usually doesn’t last long. Dollar for $ it is the best app I have for sure. I literally have it on 12 plus hours a day. From Hannibal Burris to Bradley’s Postmodern jukebox & 99.9% of anything in between.
Really like Pandora despite its issues
by watsontcbc on 2018/01/06 18:21
I really like Pandora. They fixed the latest crashing issue. I occasionally use and try other apps. Some are good for specific uses, like just finding a specific song or hearing what friends like. But Pandora consistently curated music very very well and I keep coming back, now defaulting to it for general listening in the car and at home. Jazz, electronica, fusion, trance, house, and artist or even song-based stations - you name it: I get an excellent mix suited to my tastes, with new tunes and artists I hadn’t yet heard. Yes, their ad behavior is irritating in the free version. But if you grew up listening to AM radio as I did, this is not really a problem. And if you can’t stand it, ante-up for the premium version. It is totally worth it if you hate the ads that much what with all the extra features you get. Keep it up Pandora. Just don’t make your ad function any more annoying than it already is (like popping up more ads when I just want to see the album cover, making me click two or three times to see it!). If you make it less annoying I’ll give you a full five stars!
It’s alright...
by FreudTheFish on 2019/08/23 19:32
It’s a good music app and all but it has its flaws. For starters I’m tired of when it switches to autoplay from my playlist it’s usually the same songs in the same order...that’s not auto play. Switch it up man. I hate how when I am in auto play and I stop the app, not close it but stop it, and I go back into it it starts from my most recently played playlist....WHY??? I suggest making it easier to delete playlists or songs in the playlist without having to go into my profile and search around for eternity. Every playlist should have a delete option and every song in that playlist should have a swipe left to remove from playlist option. Another thing is I swear when I do delete a playlist or a song in the playlist it’s gone from my library....every song in that playlist will just poof....disappear. Finally when it comes to making a playlist, give the name it option like you do but give a plus icon so you can browse every song in your library with an add option instead of having to click every song individually, then the three dots, then add to playlist, then which playlist you want it in....simplify man come on!
Why I love Pandora.
by Pastel Peach🌸 on 2019/11/30 20:17
Omg, Pandora is simply the BEST!! It’s a place where you can find all of you favorite songs for free! I LOVE MUSIC! And if you love music as much as I do, then your going to LOVE Pandora. I love it so much that I listen to it in bed! 😂 But... the only thing I wish was different about Pandora, is that I really wish there were more songs that have a clean version. Sometimes, when I start listening to a song, I search for a clean version of it just in case. Let’s say I wanted to listen to “On My Way” By Alan Walker & Sabrina Carpenter, then I would normally search for a clean version of that song. But sometimes, I click the normal version of it because I would think it didn’t have bad words in it due to the fact that it didn’t have a clean version. But then... I get startled by the cuss words. And then, just because of that, I tend to dislike the song. So whenever I hear that song on a different station, I will most likely 👎🏼 the song. I love you Pandora, but please please work on those clean versions!! I really enjoy your music, I can’t wait to see what you do next! To: Pandora From: Me ❤️
Organization
by Go2camp on 2019/02/02 20:11
Hi. First if all, I would like to thank you for reading this request. Now I will get on with it. I really like Pandora, but I think that you should make it more organized. I think that the favorites should be on the top of all of the stations. I also think that to make it more attractive, the blue bar at the bottom of the screen should be either white, black, or non-existent. It’s just not attractive, and all of my friends and family agree. I’m sorry if you feel as if I am taking over your business, but that is just the way that the people want it. Only the album covers should be full with color. Everything else, I feel, should be black and white and grey. More modern = more attractive. Sorry, but it’s just what it is. My friends and I would also like if everytime we opened the app, music would not automatically start playing. I hope that you can find the time to make the changes in the next two weeks, or I will definitely be compelled to delete the app. I really do think that this app is a very good app and would like to give you props for making it. But the main point of this review is to tell you that the visual appearance of this app is just not attractive. Thank you for reading. Goodbye.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Best thing
by JungKart on 2019/09/30 00:23
Ive had Pandora for YEARS. I finally upgraded to a paid account instead of free. I wish i had done this years ago. I have always loved pandora and have found so many of my favorite bands through Pandora. Now i used Pandora as a “therapy” or “medication”. Im a combat vet with serious PTSD and until very recently have been able to go without any pills due mostly to Pandora. I know that sounds silly but I legitimately medicate with music (specifically Pandora). I use special stations ive set up when i paint as well for inspiration and to keep the right mood or frame of mind or energy for the style im working on that night. Pandora has been and is currently a godsend for me and theres a decent chance I wouldn’t be here without it. Im a lifetime customer and incredibly appreciative of all the free years i accessed it as well. I hope someone up top reads this review because i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have no idea you’ve done in my life. Tearing up as I write this lol...THANK YOU.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Has something changed with the Pandora app???
by Musically Lost on 2018/10/13 06:36
Ive had Pandora for several years now, it is the free version. I have not been able to listen to my Pandora for over a week now. When I click into one of my stations, it doesn’t play. I can’t even click play, rewind, or fast forward. The icons are there but not highlighted. I have logged in and out. I’ve turned on/off my phone and I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app. I’ve done this multiple times and still nothing. When I exit out of the station to browse for other options, it says buffering...your station will be right back. I logged out of my account and had my son log into his account on my phone and his account works on my phone. I contacted the help support explaining all of this, and they sent me the troubleshooting information from their website after I explained I’ve already done all of the troubleshooting. The email they sent me said, if I was still having trouble, to respond to their email, which I did , and I still have not heard anything back. Horrible, horrible customer support.
This is an annoying bug that needs to be fixed
by Cappel 💜 on 2020/02/22 07:17
First off, I am only fourteen years old and I don’t have a bank account yet and I love the little sessions you get so you can listen to specific songs but there is something really annoying I don’t even know if it’s just my phone or if it is pandora but I hope this sounds familiar. So I go on the half session (I watch an ad first 🙂) So anyway the ad ends and it turns on my favorite song! I listen to it a few times 🥰 but then it will happen: I try to go back to my favorite part let’s say 😐 then this happens... IT WON’T PLAY!!!! It has this thing where the time (The end) is not there and I have to swipe with my thumb the thing on the song time back and it just won’t do anything I press replay many times STILL WONT PLAY!!!! So then I have to get off pandora and play a game or something ‘till the session ends!! Or I have to re-login to my account! I tried restarting my phone a few times in fact! I go on Pandora THE SESSION IS STILL ON BUT IT WON’T PLAY?!!!? 😱 This is my bug experience with Pandora! Thank u! Anyways Pandora is a great app! Thank you. 🤗
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
It’s the little things
by vnfectvous on 2018/09/15 01:17
I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Great But Just 1 Problem
by Kenzie M. :) on 2020/02/26 03:45
I love pandora. It’s an amazing app for listening to your favourite songs and I would have given this review a 5 star if it wasn’t for the only issue I’m having. When you listen to an ad to get the free trial to listen to the music if your choice it has a time limit before it times out and takes you back to the radio stations. But sometimes if you close the app before the time is up and you come back after the time is up and you should be back to the radio and ads, it won’t switch over and be stuck on the premium trial. You can’t play music or anything though. It won’t load or anything and there is no way to get out of it inside the app. I have another electronic that shares the same account as mine, and I can usually go in there and it will time out on there and switch it out on my phone but sometimes that won’t work and deleting the app or shutting down the electronic doesn’t work. Idk how to make this not happen, but that the only complaint I have. Otherwise, I absolutely love this app.
Great App! But..
by ARTIECamJT on 2019/09/04 16:41
Hi! I’ve been using Pandora for awhile. But not like 4 years or something 😅. I just want to say I love this app! I love how you can search the song you want! I honestly don’t have a problem with seeing an add when you search for the song. I kinda like the way you made the add it’s very creative to :). Anyway the reason I’m typing this is because recently the app has been having bugs like this morning ((on this date)) when I search the song I want and then after watching the add it looks like I’m gonna listen to the song but then it stops and says “Something went wrong”. And so I’m like oh ok, I’ll just try it again. Then after the add it says the same thing! I was a little irritated about it.. so I just wanted to tell you guys that there are some bugs going on in the app. Oh and another thing I wanted to say is that sometimes there’s a little to much adds when in on a radio I like. Anyway! So far I LOVE this app! It’s improved so much! ☺️ Respond if you can!
Not easy to use
by Ocaoivorew on 2019/11/19 19:40
I love the music I’ve found, BUT they say one is a single artist Chanel or station or whatever and the next with the same name plays that artist and others . But how can you see the difference . I’m basically using two stations because I can’t figure out how to navigate or try new things. I have premium and I think I should have a much better experience than this. Maybe an online how to use the thing and separate it Into free, plus and premium . Meanwhile I have two stations that play a variety around that artist and I like that. The other complaint I have is some of the artist choose that artists music from the worst they ever did, I’ll use Stevie Ray Vaughn for an example. The “ station” was playing all from an early album almost anyone who knows his music would cringe. Many of those same songs are on live albums and are so much better. To get them I had to search . Then it played one live album over and over. Very disappointing. Not all of his live songs are on one album! Gets worse . Got premium family. All this great stuff you can supposedly do, but do they say how? No. So you really don’t have any thing you didn’t have free
The Best Playlists
by steve.edwards on 2019/10/14 19:16
I’ve been using Pandora since 2003 or 2004 and it has introduced me to so many new artists that I have proudly shared with friends through the years. The patchwork of music that Pandora plays is still, I think, unparalleled when comparing the other big music streaming services. Being able to share new music with a friend and hear them say “This is awesome, I haven’t heard this before!” is all thanks to Pandora and has fed that hipster pride that many who enjoy music feel when they’ve “heard something that you’ve probably never heard of”. If I’m being honest I got to hear it only because Pandora heard it first and added it to whatever station I was listening to—Thank you Pandora for bringing so much great music to myself and those close to me AND allowing me to help cultivate stations throughout the years by giving a thumbs up, thumbs down, and to add variety to a station. PS: Reading the Artist bio’s when you get the chance can be really interesting!
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
Pandora Harassment
by andrewsappreview on 2019/05/06 21:21
I’m only giving Pandora one star based on their usability and not the streaming quality itself. Using the app is generally good and easy. When you open the app while listening and attempt to change something you must wait every time and tell Pandora you do not wish to purchase Pandora Premium for $4.99. Asking me every time I want to change my station, look at your app, or give feedback to a song I’m prompted to deny paying for their service. How asinine it that? If a guy ask gets turned down once and keeps asking a girl out it becomes harassment. Essential Pandora is harassing its users into paying for its service when I clearly do not and will not do so. Sooo IF anyone reads this, why don’t you ask for a raise every time you do your job and see how well that works. If it works, keep the service. If it doesn’t, suggest changing this to maybe once a day and earn a raise with better customer support/ friendlier interface. Or do nothing because you don’t care and I’ll leave my review. If you change this I’ll also change my review to 5 stars because it is a good service, you’re just being obnoxious for no reason other than being obnoxious. Best of luck.

Pandora filled my summer with exquisite songs and I found a lot of new music to listen to. I enjoyed the pleasant slow walks with quick steps in between running to soft calming tunes. I enjoyed the late night parties to Spanish music. I enjoyed the summer mornings spent playing basketball with my ball dribbling to the beat of drums. I could not put it into better words, but I felt like I was in love every single day in July and August. I cannot believe music has come this far. I cannot even trace where I found all such great music. The world definitely does not deserve Pandora because it gives more than we give back. I don't even have a favorite song. Because of all the great music Pandora has to offer. Rather I have a myriad of favorite songs ranging from R&B, pop, classic rock and romantic music. With artists like American Authors, OneRepublic, Pink, Daft Punk, and Taylor Swift. And favorite movie soundtracks like Paper Towns, Love Story, and Valerian. Love, yours truly, and number one listener: Veronica Andrade

Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
I love this app but something just happened...
by Glinderella on 2017/09/07 00:52
Okay, so this app is amazing. Just because you have to pay for no adds and offline use and all of that junk it's a great app. I've been using it for I think a year, maybe more, maybe less. I don't know. After the resent update, Pandora forces me to use my free trial for Pandora Premium. I was saving it for my next summer vacation so I could really enjoy it instead of just knowing I'm wasting my week of an amazing Pandora experience. At first, I had absolutely no idea what was going on and for a minute I thought I had bought the subscription and being a fourteen year old, I was super scared that I was charging my mother's bank account. So, Pandora, if you read this, your app is amazing, but please take away my free trial and let me save it!! Thank you! I haven't had any crashes, like ever. (The teenager came out sorry) so I'm not afraid of that. This app really deserves 5 stars except the free trial thing. Okay, so, all in all, this is a great app and you should really get it. It's the best one like it.
Love Pandora! Avid user... BUT!
by Beccajean89 on 2019/05/13 14:31
I love Pandora. I use it daily. It's awesome. Between my own personal use, and then playing for my kids while they play, we use it for hours and hours each day. BUT! I've got two problems with it: 1) for some reason, the app won't let me hit play from my lock screen after it's been paused for a few seconds. It just automatically re-pauses. I've gotta unlock the phone and then go back in and hit play that way. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. 2) my biggest problem is the ads. Having Ads- not a big deal. It's the ad CONTENT that gets me. My kids will be listening to a Disney themed station or Veggie Tales station and an ad for Tampax or Trojan condoms will come on. I don't think those ads are very appropriate. If they're played after a certain time each night- sure, whatever. But this was in the late mornings and early afternoon on kid stations. I'll keep using Pandora. I love it! I'll just have to make sure I turn the volume off in a hurry if inappropriate ads pop up.
Meh
by Sparky3860 on 2018/11/16 11:26
I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.

by Seal Swimmings on 2019/12/26 23:01
I really enjoy your Pandora, I listen to it all the time and it was the commercial’s that was worth while to me as well. I am a out side , blanket person pushing my shopping cart around helping others who are wealthy. I find they are unique but are in need of survival techniques and staying healthy on the out side. Pandora relaxes me and I can swim 🏊‍♂️ in the dirty bay water, ice cold water in the winter and jog miles down the coast to warm up. I live in a tent and wear swimming trunks and stay on the beach just like the wealthy do except I am closer to the water than they are and I don’t pay anything to live in my small homeless tent. Pandora gets me in the mood to move my tent down the beach when I get a three day notice to vacate my current spot. Pandora helps me look for food in back of dumpsters behind grocery stores. ( dumpster diving) so if you want, keep giving me Pandora and I will keep listening and have a marry Christmas and a great new year. Joe Swimmer 🏊🏼 in the dirty bay water
My go to! But....
by TorresDotRealtor on 2019/11/01 00:51
I’ve had Pandora for a very long time and i enjoy how it knows me so well after a decade of listening. There are a few things i would add, such as a driving mode where touch controls are bigger and more pronounced. The upgrade pop up is freakin annoying, but you gotta do what you gotta do, i do suggest maybe a delay when it pops up, because it appears as soon as you wake up your phone and ive hit that banner a million and one times so far when i try to change a station or song. As for the biggest issue right now is pandora when apple maps is open. It completely messes up voice turn by turn and you only get audio prompts which defeats the purpose of eyes on the road. No matter what settings i change in Pandora or maps, no voice turn by turn possible when playing a song. This doesn't happen with any other music app...just saying. Overall great music service and ill update the review as soon as these issue get fixed....running on iPhoneSE....i need to upgrade, i know, but youuu have the money? Exactly, so shut up. Lol jk Love you 😍
What happened
by ThePowerful on 2019/02/01 01:29
I used to love Pandora because it was free music that played all my favorite music and had a wide variety of music from movie soundtracks to music you hear everyday on the radio. But this past year or so Pandora hasn’t been the best. For one it used to have a problem where it would just shut off for no reason at all but that problem seemed to get fix. But now there’s a problem with loading the music, sometimes radio stations won’t load and you’ll either have to play with a couple of other stations and then go back to that one. I understand the concept of liking songs and hearing similar songs like that one you liked but they continuously play the same liked songs all the time. I realized that you’re better off not liking or disliking a song if you want to hear different music. The last thing is the ads. I know that’s how you make your money and a lot of us can’t afford to pay for premium but it’s annoying when you can only listen to 2 songs before an ad pops up. I wish y’all would fix some of these problems
No longer in Denial
by "aine" on 2019/09/26 20:00
I’ve been in denial over the functionality of Pandora for over a year now. After years of free listening with manageable ads I found that the number, frequency and length of ads went up exponentially about a year ago. So I decided to upgrade. Commercial free and offline listening were big selling points to me. However it’s not really commercial free is it? I would have to play an ad to replay a song and sometimes even to skip. And don’t get me started on the offline listening feature. I am a commuter and am often on the subways and I find that not only do I have to have turned on the offline listening option before I’m underground but I only have a selection of maybe a dozen songs in that playlist. If I don’t switch to the offline listening option before I’m out of range there is no offline listening for me at all. Instead I watch as Pandora skips and buffers through dozens of songs as I listen to the complaints of commuters around me. I can’t honestly note a praiseworthy aspect of Pandora right now and since I’ve canceled my subscription I have such a sense of alleviation. I am no longer wasting money or energy over an app that doesn’t work.

Since the update, I can’t get to my notifications. It says I have one but can’t get to it. I do understand that things need an update but certain things do not need to be. I love the app.
Simply the best
by jeffreyscottbrock on 2020/02/27 02:43
This is still hands down my favorite streaming app. Pick a song or genre and let it rip. I have learned of and purchased more music because of this app. I don’t know of anything else like this.
The best app ever!

I really enjoy Pandora. My favorite and most use app on my iPhone 👍

Ok so I understand that you guys need the money to keep this app going but I swear it’s so crappy.Ok so first whenever I exit the app,it stops playing my song and then starts playing some random song.I think that’s so stupid and that’s the thing I’m most mad at.I also don’t like this app because it literally almost deleted my WHOLE playlist.Like I don’t know if this is a glitch or this app is just really awful in general.I suggest getting Spotify instead >:/

There are way to many ads but I’m not complaining
Better the Spotify
by Laynie07🥰🥳 on 2020/02/27 01:16
I am able to get this app to work at school, home and places with little connection. Where as when I had Spotify it did none of that and would not even connect to my AirPods. It is also way cheaper than any other music app.
Best app ever!!!

I love musics and this is my favorites rite app to listen to it on! A+ on the sound quality and variety!👌🙂
The adds..
by Peanutbutterkitkat on 2020/02/27 00:32
I love the app but the gosh dang adds, I can’t get premium until April and it might just be my dumb phone glitching but my radio stations will play but anything from a free trial won’t it’s just silence, it’s probably my phone and my app already updated so I’m sure what to do exactly but otherwise the app is really good
STOP CRASHING
by nsoega on 2020/02/27 00:00
I’ve had Pandora for awhile now and it’s been great, but recently the app has been crashing by kicking me off the app or by not playing the music. It’ll say that the music is playing but there won’t be any sound! I like this app a lot and don’t mind watching an ad to get temporary premium access so PLEASE fix these bugs so I can get back to listening to my music undisturbed.

More music would help
by Agape Reign on 2020/02/26 19:44
I have not gotten the premium service because you have a limited number of songs you play on my channels. I loop through the same small group of songs. And I’m not sure how some songs get on my stations. They aren’t even in the same genre.
Awesome!!!!
by aaa battery boi on 2020/02/26 19:11

My favorite music app
by Hap!? on 2020/02/26 15:38
This app is the best music listening app for me. It’s great at playing the kind of music I want to listen to when I want to listen to it. The heartfelt country, the shower singalongs, the getting out some anger rock, upbeat cleaning jams, slow relaxing meditation sounds. I have a station for each of these, and more. Because I choose what station tinlisten To based on my mood at the moment, I would love to be able to choose to give feedback for “this station,” for “this artist,” or for “this song.” Some songs I never want to hear, ever, on any station. Some singers/bands I never want to hear ever on any station. Some songs are perfect for the rockin stations and wrong for the chillin stations. I want to be able to specify “thumbs down for this station” versus “thumbs down” or skipping the song leading to the impression that I didn’t want to listen to that song. It depends on what my music mood is what station I’m on and what music I want to hear. Pandora does a great job with stations that play music to fit my mood, this would just bring Pandora up to a new level. I would love to have a station for “broken heart” songs that includes broken heart songs from country, rock, pop, etc instead of the default country genre. This could be applied to so many other emotions, which of course is the place music touches the most! “Pick-me-Up” “Love💗” “🤬 you” “sexy time” “massage/bath relaxation” The list goes on as far as the emotional range of all of the listeners of Pandora. Pandora, you can do this!
Great until glitches
by Hugonias on 2020/02/26 15:34
Have always preferred Pandora to other music apps but have run into various glitches with the app.
Great app. Worth paying for to get rid of commercials
by Schoomista on 2020/02/26 15:31
IT’S BEEN OVER 10 YEARS I’VE HAD THIS AMAZING APP. I’ve been a plus member since day 1, I loathe commercials, that’s why I don’t listen to the radio anymore. My only wish is that I could listen to my stations on more than one device at a time so I can have different stations in every room! Amazing app!

I love Pandora. I have used it for years and they never fail me.
It’s ok I guess
by gZudud on 2020/02/26 05:56
I like this app there are better apps out there and the only reason i use this app is to get to music I normally reach. It’s ok I guess in a rush I would never use this app because you have to watch an add. But on slow days I would totally recommend it if you haven’t heard a song in a while or you need to pick up on the latest songs. Though I find it hard to find music that I like and the adds are so annoying I just want to listen to my song! I can’t even find my playlist without going on search and watching an add. I must of watched the same add over a hundred Times. I do dance and I can’t let the screen go dark from the other side of the room and then I have to watch the add all over again. I would not recommend this app if you have a short tension span.
Great But Just 1 Problem
by Kenzie M. :) on 2020/02/26 03:45
I love pandora. It’s an amazing app for listening to your favourite songs and I would have given this review a 5 star if it wasn’t for the only issue I’m having. When you listen to an ad to get the free trial to listen to the music if your choice it has a time limit before it times out and takes you back to the radio stations. But sometimes if you close the app before the time is up and you come back after the time is up and you should be back to the radio and ads, it won’t switch over and be stuck on the premium trial. You can’t play music or anything though. It won’t load or anything and there is no way to get out of it inside the app. I have another electronic that shares the same account as mine, and I can usually go in there and it will time out on there and switch it out on my phone but sometimes that won’t work and deleting the app or shutting down the electronic doesn’t work. Idk how to make this not happen, but that the only complaint I have. Otherwise, I absolutely love this app.

by HellSpawn1970 on 2020/02/25 15:30
I’ve been listening to music on Pandora for a while now, and it’s still a good app for listening to music at the gym, but I’ve noticed something: while it’s still playing music that I like, it seems to be from the same four bands, when in the past I heard music from 10-15 bands. Is there some way I can get back to the way it used to be? Help! (Please?)

By the way creator you have made my life so much better and I love you 😘!!!!!!

by butterfinger0231 on 2020/02/24 01:12
I really love this app! I love jamming out to my music anywhere. I don’t pay for premium, but the ads really aren’t that bad; they’re actually quite catchy. One of the only problems I have is that you can’t give a song a thumbs up from your lock screen. I don’t know if that is just a thing with my phone, or the app, but it’s kinda annoying to have to enter the app to like a song. One other thing, is that some stations only play like 10 songs I’ve given thumbs and then it plays songs that really don’t relate to the station at all (ex. Disney Children Radio). Other than that I really love Pandora, and would recommend it to everyone :)

by Atoced on 2020/02/24 00:32
Lately the app has been crashing and it’s super annoying. I play one or two songs then it stops playing anything after that. I’ve tried closing out the app and shutting my phone down all together and it still won’t play music. The only way I can get past it is literally deleting the app and re downloading it to get the app to work.

I love this app
by SobbingPuppy on 2020/01/05 00:34
I don’t have the premium plan but nevertheless I would definitely vouch for this app. I recommend this to anyone who wants to jam to their music even with the slight interruption of random catchy ads that you’d surprisingly enjoy. The only thing I can think of that would make one confused or upset is the replay button when you specifically request a song in exchange of a few seconds of advertisement. The replay button within itself does its job; replays continuously until your time is up. On the other hand, when you tap that button twice, to request the song to repeat only once it doesn’t do so. It would replay the song continuously until time is up, which normally doesn’t happen tho because you’d realize it continued more times than wanted. But that can always be fixed, simply by stopping it from replaying by tapping the replay button once more to allow it to go on auto play immediately after or even just requesting another song 😅 Other than that no complaints here, I use Pandora quite literally all the time. Um, thank you for your time, keep it going Pandora!
Good
by IAmTheAdventure on 2020/01/23 18:24
I like pandora, it offers a pretty diverse selection of music. I pay the monthly subscription, so I can look up and play mostly everything except for some up and coming artists for the most part. My biggest gripe is that I cannot search for an artist, listen to an album or song in particular, and give it a thumbs up to add to my “thumbs up” playlist. I have to wait for it to appear in a radio station, and I often listen to music while I’m driving or working and don’t have the time to stop what I’m doing and give it a thumbs up. It would be much easier if I could do that at home and have my thumbs up playlist offering a more accurate selection of what I actually like. I find it ludicrous this isn’t offered. It’s such an obvious part of today’s culture and society, but it isn’t present in this service in a manner that would be most beneficial for a more specific and easier allocation of my favorites. At least I have no advertisements. It only took three years of returning off and on to Pandora to sway me. Also, the offline mode is very nice. Overall I’m pleased with the service. They charge as much as streaming movie services as well, so I hope they are putting forth the highest quality of sound accessible. I haven’t looked into it myself, but it’s nice audio quality for my speakers in the car and at work. Still, I want top notch for how much I’m paying please. It’s important for both the artists and the fans.
App needs so much work
by Waelwulfan on 2019/03/28 21:41
The service itself is great. All of my complaints are with the app and not Pandora itself. 1. App seems to get shut down in the background after only a few minutes if it’s not playing music. Even if you’re not doing anything else with your phone. So when you open it back up, everything needs to reload and whatever song you were listening to is gone. 2. CarPlay issues. OMG, where to begin? CarPlay with Pandora is a disaster. Keeps going from Now Playing back to the Stations screen. Stations don’t load (blank screen) sometimes, forcing you to use your phone to get started. If you change stations or skip songs, sometimes the Now Playing screen will still show the previous song for a good 10 seconds or more, during which time onscreen controls like Pause will not work. 3. Offline songs are noticeably louder than if they’re streamed. Offline mode also seems hesitant to switch back online despite a strong and solid network connection. 4. Ever since Offline mode was introduced, the streaming cache has been severely reduced. It used to cache 3-4 songs. Now it doesn’t seem to cache the next song until the current one is half way done. If you’re in a spotty area and you skip the current song, you’re out of luck. I would happily trade Offline mode to get back a bigger streaming cache.
Pandora’ Disclaimer
by CrystalNWilliams on 2018/09/23 14:51
Allow me start off with how much I utilize Pandora. I have had a Pandora account for at least 8 years. But recently I have purchased the Pandora Premium account. I loved the idea of downloading music to listen to later and I have my own personal music list. I loved the idea of the “Offline” feature as well. But recently I have ran into a few issues. 1 of them being when I switch the offline due to being in an airplane... it only allows me to listen to SOME of the songs even though I have downloaded them. When I go to click on the song it states that it is not allowed for playbacks. 🧐 Sooooo... why was able to download it if I can’t replay it?? 2. Then I was listening to my songs with WiFi and it was telling me that I can’t listen to the songs because they are not allowed for playbacks... so no matter what.... you allowed me to feel like I was given the opportunity to have the song on my playlist BUT I can’t listen to it?? 3. You are able to listen to a lot of songs. You can search for a lot of songs. You can discover new songs.... but you can NOT download a lot of these songs... so my conclusion is... deal with the lack of skips, commercials and keep the free option because it’s not worth what they charge. Very disappointing.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
Nothing compared to Apple Music
by Caleb1744 on 2020/02/05 12:11
There are a lot of adds on Pandora and after paying the smaller subscription (something like $5 a month), I found that I was still limited in what I could do. I was not able to make or edit playlists nearly as well as Apple Music if at all (I never figured it out), the amount of likes and dislikes was also limited. There came several times when I noticed an apparent glitch in the system as well. There was a type of song that continued to play on a certain violin station (Daniel D) that sounded almost like a metronome. I pushed dislike. But then, as if I actually pushed “like”, it played another similar song. Before I knew it, I was listening to nothing but that type of music and patiently disliking every last one. Then I ran out of dislikes. I have noticed that a lot of stations are seemingly preset mostly by popular trends. My likes and dislikes don’t have as strong an influence as they should. Basses on these disappointments, I decided to find somewhere else to get my music. I got Apple Music unlimited for $4.99 on school discount. I have unlimited access to anything - unlimited skips, easily editing of playlists, unlimited likes and dislikes, recommended albums to add to playlists, I can skip to the middle of any song. Pandora served its purpose, but Apple Music, while compared side by side with pandora, is much better.
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
Pandora Plus...has its flaws.
by Courtney4367732 on 2020/02/16 17:39
First of all, with Plus you’re supposed to have the ability to listen to a few offline stations. In theory, it’s supposed to switch to offline mode automatically when you lose cell service or internet access...rarely ever does this happen automatically. Also, of the 4 available offline stations, usually only 1 works. At least a third of the time it will say all stations are unavailable and will play nothing. My second complaint is something that annoys me so much, I’ve been looking into other music services. Even though I pay for ad free and already have Pandora Plus, ads for Pandora Plus pop up constantly! Initially premium ads were coming up, and that’s annoying enough, but then to keep pushing Plus on me when I ALREADY HAVE IT is just too much for me. UPDATE... 2 years later still having the same issue with the switching between offline and online modes. Always messing up or making me do it manually (which is a massive pain due to an update a while back.) makes it very difficult to access this option while driving. Also still says stations are “unavailable” when offline even though I’ve downloaded them. Ugh.
It could be better
by Margaret Kellyyy on 2019/03/10 15:15
I have the premium subscription and overall I’m pleased with the easy to use platform, music selection and the quality of sound. However I do agree with other users that I wish Pandora would give users (especially those that pay for premium) the ability to edit/sort your stations and playlists on your home page. Yes you can filter for your stations or downloaded playlists but I’m pretty particular and I like things to be alphabetical... or the order in which my brain thinks is most logical. But the thing that bothers me THE MOST is the fact that when you pause a song, and lock your phone and walk away for a moment or pause to have a conversation with a coworker and you go back to the app, it acts like you just opened the app and the song you were listening to you, at your favorite part, starts over. What’s with that?! I understand that music apps may be different but the free game apps I have don’t wipe out my progress if I pause the game and “minimize” the app.... why can’t the app I pay monthly for do the same?!?
Thumbprint Overrides Selection
by MrRTB on 2019/12/10 16:21
When I choose an Artist to listen to, I expect the majority of the music for that channel to be the Artist I selected, not just a few. It seems the more thumbprints your choose, the less of the actual artist you want to listen to actually get played. Recently is seems to be maybe 10-15% of the actual artist/musicians channel that is chosen actually gets their music. The only way I can see to fix the issue is to “Un-THUMBPRINT” the individual channels other artist/musician thumbprints to be able to listen to that channels music. The thumbprints should only be used as a guide for using the thumbprint channel itself, or to fill in an occasional selection. There should be no more than 25% of the thumbprint selections on an an individual / group artist / musicians channel except for thumbprint or various selection channels. Perhaps if people prefer thumbprints over the actual artist /musician selected, a setup panel for individuals to choose how much thumbprint they want to listen to Vs actual artist / musician channel would be appropriate. Very frustrated as a main source of listening and won’t subscribe because they (PANDORA) feels they know better about what I want to listen to than I do.
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
No radio zone.
by buddhaman79 on 2019/03/22 19:27
I put off moving from Fl to the backwoods of western North Carolina mostly because there was only talk radio and two country stations (I don’t like country at all) but as fait has it, I moved up here anyway in ‘07 & lived in misery until my first smart phone & finding the Pandora app in around ‘14 & found again what living was again. Than in mid 2017 I was working at a house in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end. I got no service out there & the free Pandora didn’t work out of coarse too. At this point I decided to brake down & get Pandora premium for off line playlist. I have had Pandora premium since that time and have never looked back. I love it, it is my personal radio station. Like I own my own station & can play whatever the hell I want. A few things pop up (can’t play due to licensing) but it’s rare enough & it usually doesn’t last long. Dollar for $ it is the best app I have for sure. I literally have it on 12 plus hours a day. From Hannibal Burris to Bradley’s Postmodern jukebox & 99.9% of anything in between.
Really like Pandora despite its issues
by watsontcbc on 2018/01/06 18:21
I really like Pandora. They fixed the latest crashing issue. I occasionally use and try other apps. Some are good for specific uses, like just finding a specific song or hearing what friends like. But Pandora consistently curated music very very well and I keep coming back, now defaulting to it for general listening in the car and at home. Jazz, electronica, fusion, trance, house, and artist or even song-based stations - you name it: I get an excellent mix suited to my tastes, with new tunes and artists I hadn’t yet heard. Yes, their ad behavior is irritating in the free version. But if you grew up listening to AM radio as I did, this is not really a problem. And if you can’t stand it, ante-up for the premium version. It is totally worth it if you hate the ads that much what with all the extra features you get. Keep it up Pandora. Just don’t make your ad function any more annoying than it already is (like popping up more ads when I just want to see the album cover, making me click two or three times to see it!). If you make it less annoying I’ll give you a full five stars!
It’s alright...
by FreudTheFish on 2019/08/23 19:32
It’s a good music app and all but it has its flaws. For starters I’m tired of when it switches to autoplay from my playlist it’s usually the same songs in the same order...that’s not auto play. Switch it up man. I hate how when I am in auto play and I stop the app, not close it but stop it, and I go back into it it starts from my most recently played playlist....WHY??? I suggest making it easier to delete playlists or songs in the playlist without having to go into my profile and search around for eternity. Every playlist should have a delete option and every song in that playlist should have a swipe left to remove from playlist option. Another thing is I swear when I do delete a playlist or a song in the playlist it’s gone from my library....every song in that playlist will just poof....disappear. Finally when it comes to making a playlist, give the name it option like you do but give a plus icon so you can browse every song in your library with an add option instead of having to click every song individually, then the three dots, then add to playlist, then which playlist you want it in....simplify man come on!
Why I love Pandora.
by Pastel Peach🌸 on 2019/11/30 20:17
Omg, Pandora is simply the BEST!! It’s a place where you can find all of you favorite songs for free! I LOVE MUSIC! And if you love music as much as I do, then your going to LOVE Pandora. I love it so much that I listen to it in bed! 😂 But... the only thing I wish was different about Pandora, is that I really wish there were more songs that have a clean version. Sometimes, when I start listening to a song, I search for a clean version of it just in case. Let’s say I wanted to listen to “On My Way” By Alan Walker & Sabrina Carpenter, then I would normally search for a clean version of that song. But sometimes, I click the normal version of it because I would think it didn’t have bad words in it due to the fact that it didn’t have a clean version. But then... I get startled by the cuss words. And then, just because of that, I tend to dislike the song. So whenever I hear that song on a different station, I will most likely 👎🏼 the song. I love you Pandora, but please please work on those clean versions!! I really enjoy your music, I can’t wait to see what you do next! To: Pandora From: Me ❤️
Organization
by Go2camp on 2019/02/02 20:11
Hi. First if all, I would like to thank you for reading this request. Now I will get on with it. I really like Pandora, but I think that you should make it more organized. I think that the favorites should be on the top of all of the stations. I also think that to make it more attractive, the blue bar at the bottom of the screen should be either white, black, or non-existent. It’s just not attractive, and all of my friends and family agree. I’m sorry if you feel as if I am taking over your business, but that is just the way that the people want it. Only the album covers should be full with color. Everything else, I feel, should be black and white and grey. More modern = more attractive. Sorry, but it’s just what it is. My friends and I would also like if everytime we opened the app, music would not automatically start playing. I hope that you can find the time to make the changes in the next two weeks, or I will definitely be compelled to delete the app. I really do think that this app is a very good app and would like to give you props for making it. But the main point of this review is to tell you that the visual appearance of this app is just not attractive. Thank you for reading. Goodbye.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Best thing
by JungKart on 2019/09/30 00:23
Ive had Pandora for YEARS. I finally upgraded to a paid account instead of free. I wish i had done this years ago. I have always loved pandora and have found so many of my favorite bands through Pandora. Now i used Pandora as a “therapy” or “medication”. Im a combat vet with serious PTSD and until very recently have been able to go without any pills due mostly to Pandora. I know that sounds silly but I legitimately medicate with music (specifically Pandora). I use special stations ive set up when i paint as well for inspiration and to keep the right mood or frame of mind or energy for the style im working on that night. Pandora has been and is currently a godsend for me and theres a decent chance I wouldn’t be here without it. Im a lifetime customer and incredibly appreciative of all the free years i accessed it as well. I hope someone up top reads this review because i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have no idea you’ve done in my life. Tearing up as I write this lol...THANK YOU.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Has something changed with the Pandora app???
by Musically Lost on 2018/10/13 06:36
Ive had Pandora for several years now, it is the free version. I have not been able to listen to my Pandora for over a week now. When I click into one of my stations, it doesn’t play. I can’t even click play, rewind, or fast forward. The icons are there but not highlighted. I have logged in and out. I’ve turned on/off my phone and I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app. I’ve done this multiple times and still nothing. When I exit out of the station to browse for other options, it says buffering...your station will be right back. I logged out of my account and had my son log into his account on my phone and his account works on my phone. I contacted the help support explaining all of this, and they sent me the troubleshooting information from their website after I explained I’ve already done all of the troubleshooting. The email they sent me said, if I was still having trouble, to respond to their email, which I did , and I still have not heard anything back. Horrible, horrible customer support.
This is an annoying bug that needs to be fixed
by Cappel 💜 on 2020/02/22 07:17
First off, I am only fourteen years old and I don’t have a bank account yet and I love the little sessions you get so you can listen to specific songs but there is something really annoying I don’t even know if it’s just my phone or if it is pandora but I hope this sounds familiar. So I go on the half session (I watch an ad first 🙂) So anyway the ad ends and it turns on my favorite song! I listen to it a few times 🥰 but then it will happen: I try to go back to my favorite part let’s say 😐 then this happens... IT WON’T PLAY!!!! It has this thing where the time (The end) is not there and I have to swipe with my thumb the thing on the song time back and it just won’t do anything I press replay many times STILL WONT PLAY!!!! So then I have to get off pandora and play a game or something ‘till the session ends!! Or I have to re-login to my account! I tried restarting my phone a few times in fact! I go on Pandora THE SESSION IS STILL ON BUT IT WON’T PLAY?!!!? 😱 This is my bug experience with Pandora! Thank u! Anyways Pandora is a great app! Thank you. 🤗
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.

I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Great But Just 1 Problem

I love pandora. It’s an amazing app for listening to your favourite songs and I would have given this review a 5 star if it wasn’t for the only issue I’m having. When you listen to an ad to get the free trial to listen to the music if your choice it has a time limit before it times out and takes you back to the radio stations. But sometimes if you close the app before the time is up and you come back after the time is up and you should be back to the radio and ads, it won’t switch over and be stuck on the premium trial. You can’t play music or anything though. It won’t load or anything and there is no way to get out of it inside the app. I have another electronic that shares the same account as mine, and I can usually go in there and it will time out on there and switch it out on my phone but sometimes that won’t work and deleting the app or shutting down the electronic doesn’t work. Idk how to make this not happen, but that the only complaint I have. Otherwise, I absolutely love this app.
Great App! But..
by ARTIECamJT on 2019/09/04 16:41
Hi! I’ve been using Pandora for awhile. But not like 4 years or something 😅. I just want to say I love this app! I love how you can search the song you want! I honestly don’t have a problem with seeing an add when you search for the song. I kinda like the way you made the add it’s very creative to :). Anyway the reason I’m typing this is because recently the app has been having bugs like this morning ((on this date)) when I search the song I want and then after watching the add it looks like I’m gonna listen to the song but then it stops and says “Something went wrong”. And so I’m like oh ok, I’ll just try it again. Then after the add it says the same thing! I was a little irritated about it.. so I just wanted to tell you guys that there are some bugs going on in the app. Oh and another thing I wanted to say is that sometimes there’s a little to much adds when in on a radio I like. Anyway! So far I LOVE this app! It’s improved so much! ☺️ Respond if you can!
Not easy to use
by Ocaoivorew on 2019/11/19 19:40
I love the music I’ve found, BUT they say one is a single artist Chanel or station or whatever and the next with the same name plays that artist and others . But how can you see the difference . I’m basically using two stations because I can’t figure out how to navigate or try new things. I have premium and I think I should have a much better experience than this. Maybe an online how to use the thing and separate it Into free, plus and premium . Meanwhile I have two stations that play a variety around that artist and I like that. The other complaint I have is some of the artist choose that artists music from the worst they ever did, I’ll use Stevie Ray Vaughn for an example. The “ station” was playing all from an early album almost anyone who knows his music would cringe. Many of those same songs are on live albums and are so much better. To get them I had to search . Then it played one live album over and over. Very disappointing. Not all of his live songs are on one album! Gets worse . Got premium family. All this great stuff you can supposedly do, but do they say how? No. So you really don’t have any thing you didn’t have free
The Best Playlists
by steve.edwards on 2019/10/14 19:16
I’ve been using Pandora since 2003 or 2004 and it has introduced me to so many new artists that I have proudly shared with friends through the years. The patchwork of music that Pandora plays is still, I think, unparalleled when comparing the other big music streaming services. Being able to share new music with a friend and hear them say “This is awesome, I haven’t heard this before!” is all thanks to Pandora and has fed that hipster pride that many who enjoy music feel when they’ve “heard something that you’ve probably never heard of”. If I’m being honest I got to hear it only because Pandora heard it first and added it to whatever station I was listening to—Thank you Pandora for bringing so much great music to myself and those close to me AND allowing me to help cultivate stations throughout the years by giving a thumbs up, thumbs down, and to add variety to a station. PS: Reading the Artist bio’s when you get the chance can be really interesting!
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
Pandora Harassment
by andrewsappreview on 2019/05/06 21:21
I’m only giving Pandora one star based on their usability and not the streaming quality itself. Using the app is generally good and easy. When you open the app while listening and attempt to change something you must wait every time and tell Pandora you do not wish to purchase Pandora Premium for $4.99. Asking me every time I want to change my station, look at your app, or give feedback to a song I’m prompted to deny paying for their service. How asinine it that? If a guy ask gets turned down once and keeps asking a girl out it becomes harassment. Essential Pandora is harassing its users into paying for its service when I clearly do not and will not do so. Sooo IF anyone reads this, why don’t you ask for a raise every time you do your job and see how well that works. If it works, keep the service. If it doesn’t, suggest changing this to maybe once a day and earn a raise with better customer support/ friendlier interface. Or do nothing because you don’t care and I’ll leave my review. If you change this I’ll also change my review to 5 stars because it is a good service, you’re just being obnoxious for no reason other than being obnoxious. Best of luck.

Pandora filled my summer with exquisite songs and I found a lot of new music to listen to. I enjoyed the pleasant slow walks with quick steps in between running to soft calming tunes. I enjoyed the late night parties to Spanish music. I enjoyed the summer mornings spent playing basketball with my ball dribbling to the beat of drums. I could not put it into better words, but I felt like I was in love every single day in July and August. I cannot believe music has come this far. I cannot even trace where I found all such great music. The world definitely does not deserve Pandora because it gives more than we give back. I don't even have a favorite song. Because of all the great music Pandora has to offer. Rather I have a myriad of favorite songs ranging from R&B, pop, classic rock and romantic music. With artists like American Authors, OneRepublic, Pink, Daft Punk, and Taylor Swift. And favorite movie soundtracks like Paper Towns, Love Story, and Valerian. Love, yours truly, and number one listener: Veronica Andrade
Life expression through harmony of time an place of the poetically timed !

Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
I love this app but something just happened...
by Glinderella on 2017/09/07 00:52
Okay, so this app is amazing. Just because you have to pay for no adds and offline use and all of that junk it's a great app. I've been using it for I think a year, maybe more, maybe less. I don't know. After the resent update, Pandora forces me to use my free trial for Pandora Premium. I was saving it for my next summer vacation so I could really enjoy it instead of just knowing I'm wasting my week of an amazing Pandora experience. At first, I had absolutely no idea what was going on and for a minute I thought I had bought the subscription and being a fourteen year old, I was super scared that I was charging my mother's bank account. So, Pandora, if you read this, your app is amazing, but please take away my free trial and let me save it!! Thank you! I haven't had any crashes, like ever. (The teenager came out sorry) so I'm not afraid of that. This app really deserves 5 stars except the free trial thing. Okay, so, all in all, this is a great app and you should really get it. It's the best one like it.
Love Pandora! Avid user... BUT!
by Beccajean89 on 2019/05/13 14:31
I love Pandora. I use it daily. It's awesome. Between my own personal use, and then playing for my kids while they play, we use it for hours and hours each day. BUT! I've got two problems with it: 1) for some reason, the app won't let me hit play from my lock screen after it's been paused for a few seconds. It just automatically re-pauses. I've gotta unlock the phone and then go back in and hit play that way. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. 2) my biggest problem is the ads. Having Ads- not a big deal. It's the ad CONTENT that gets me. My kids will be listening to a Disney themed station or Veggie Tales station and an ad for Tampax or Trojan condoms will come on. I don't think those ads are very appropriate. If they're played after a certain time each night- sure, whatever. But this was in the late mornings and early afternoon on kid stations. I'll keep using Pandora. I love it! I'll just have to make sure I turn the volume off in a hurry if inappropriate ads pop up.
Meh

I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.

I really enjoy your Pandora, I listen to it all the time and it was the commercial’s that was worth while to me as well. I am a out side , blanket person pushing my shopping cart around helping others who are wealthy. I find they are unique but are in need of survival techniques and staying healthy on the out side. Pandora relaxes me and I can swim 🏊‍♂️ in the dirty bay water, ice cold water in the winter and jog miles down the coast to warm up. I live in a tent and wear swimming trunks and stay on the beach just like the wealthy do except I am closer to the water than they are and I don’t pay anything to live in my small homeless tent. Pandora gets me in the mood to move my tent down the beach when I get a three day notice to vacate my current spot. Pandora helps me look for food in back of dumpsters behind grocery stores. ( dumpster diving) so if you want, keep giving me Pandora and I will keep listening and have a marry Christmas and a great new year. Joe Swimmer 🏊🏼 in the dirty bay water
My go to! But....
by TorresDotRealtor on 2019/11/01 00:51
I’ve had Pandora for a very long time and i enjoy how it knows me so well after a decade of listening. There are a few things i would add, such as a driving mode where touch controls are bigger and more pronounced. The upgrade pop up is freakin annoying, but you gotta do what you gotta do, i do suggest maybe a delay when it pops up, because it appears as soon as you wake up your phone and ive hit that banner a million and one times so far when i try to change a station or song. As for the biggest issue right now is pandora when apple maps is open. It completely messes up voice turn by turn and you only get audio prompts which defeats the purpose of eyes on the road. No matter what settings i change in Pandora or maps, no voice turn by turn possible when playing a song. This doesn't happen with any other music app...just saying. Overall great music service and ill update the review as soon as these issue get fixed....running on iPhoneSE....i need to upgrade, i know, but youuu have the money? Exactly, so shut up. Lol jk Love you 😍
What happened
by ThePowerful on 2019/02/01 01:29
I used to love Pandora because it was free music that played all my favorite music and had a wide variety of music from movie soundtracks to music you hear everyday on the radio. But this past year or so Pandora hasn’t been the best. For one it used to have a problem where it would just shut off for no reason at all but that problem seemed to get fix. But now there’s a problem with loading the music, sometimes radio stations won’t load and you’ll either have to play with a couple of other stations and then go back to that one. I understand the concept of liking songs and hearing similar songs like that one you liked but they continuously play the same liked songs all the time. I realized that you’re better off not liking or disliking a song if you want to hear different music. The last thing is the ads. I know that’s how you make your money and a lot of us can’t afford to pay for premium but it’s annoying when you can only listen to 2 songs before an ad pops up. I wish y’all would fix some of these problems
No longer in Denial
by "aine" on 2019/09/26 20:00
I’ve been in denial over the functionality of Pandora for over a year now. After years of free listening with manageable ads I found that the number, frequency and length of ads went up exponentially about a year ago. So I decided to upgrade. Commercial free and offline listening were big selling points to me. However it’s not really commercial free is it? I would have to play an ad to replay a song and sometimes even to skip. And don’t get me started on the offline listening feature. I am a commuter and am often on the subways and I find that not only do I have to have turned on the offline listening option before I’m underground but I only have a selection of maybe a dozen songs in that playlist. If I don’t switch to the offline listening option before I’m out of range there is no offline listening for me at all. Instead I watch as Pandora skips and buffers through dozens of songs as I listen to the complaints of commuters around me. I can’t honestly note a praiseworthy aspect of Pandora right now and since I’ve canceled my subscription I have such a sense of alleviation. I am no longer wasting money or energy over an app that doesn’t work.
