Functionality is not good
by A user 164947161ajdnf on 2019/04/20 06:13
Has a lot of issues. Often end up listening to 3-5 ads in a row instead of the 1 because it keeps throwing errors and makes me repeat the “listen to ad”. So 1 star rating for sketchy ad practices

Same songs
by queenliz3324 on 2019/04/20 02:30
I’ve been a pandora customer for a while and I have started to notice, no matter what station you chose the same songs are played over and over again. I’m considering going with another music streaming service. None of the latest music.
More adds now

Skip song automatically
by heygomertoo on 2019/04/20 01:53
I like the radio stations on Pandora. Play is a good mix of the group that I like plus other similar groups. Cons: it will skip a song rather than continue to play it. It would be nice if it just continued playing when I got back in the car.. annoying.

by TeoStarsOnly on 2019/04/20 01:14
Need to do a bug fix...new commercials freeze the return to music function and the station has to be manually switched to a different station.....
The best music app to use!
by K Jayde H on 2019/04/20 01:08
This app has a great way of organizing the music categories! It also has a low price feature of offline listening!! It is the best app to use by far, and will also let you go off of the app and use other apps while your background music plays!! All of the latest hits and newest songs are available too!
Skipping song issue
by Golgi App on 2019/04/20 00:58
On my 2016 Hyundai Elantra I would press the skip button once and sometimes it would skip 2 or 3 songs. It’s discouraging when it skips a song I love and it uses up my limited skips.
Enjoyable
by Doe-Doe Byrd2 on 2019/04/20 00:12
I just enjoy listening to Pandora all the time especially with the different stations. In with Pandora in Zachary.

Irritating
by lanan1990 on 2019/04/19 19:14
I got harassed to pay so I got the $5.. they are still harassing me to pay for premium. It’s annoying af I’m already a customer! Very greedy. Lately the app keeps shutting off. It will auto play 3 songs on a channel and then cut off. When I reopen it replays the last song it played. I updated the app and my phone. Same issue. Please fix it and stop badgering me for money!
The right Box
by Mr. Q. Mack on 2019/04/19 17:59
My everyday has to have Pandora. I mean no matter what mood I am in they have the station for me. Either when I am coaching, working a personal training session or just cleaning the house. Its always a good time with Pandora. It truly is the right box because there is something in their for every person, purpose and party. Its just right.

Pandora music changed
by memajules on 2019/04/19 15:40
I had been using the free Pandora and just loved the selection of music in the Norah Jones station. I opted to purchase the monthly package so I could listen to that same station while offline. Since that time the music selection has changed. Trying to get it back to where it had been. Still enjoying the music

Used to love this app
by happy_purchase on 2019/04/19 13:31
I used to love this app, which is i I started paying for the premium membership, but as of the last couple months every time I download a playlist and try listening to it on shuffle, it skips through the WHOLE playlist in a matter of seconds and goes on auto play. I hoped that the updates you fix this Pringle’s but it has only gotten worse. With the most recent update it actually started playing 3 songs at the same time. 3! I am not happy and I really that pandora fixes these problems soon.

For the music lovers
by Aura belaskyni on 2019/04/19 12:21
Grate app I’d recommend it to any music lover but it’s really annoying when your song is blocked for legal reasons and it tells you to make a station but you never end up hearing it
If they could fix this it could be a 5 star!
by Lmao72764539 on 2019/04/19 12:01
I was going to try the pandora plus free trial to see if I would purchase it later on, but it never gave me the initial free month subscription and automatically charged me without letting me know. I love the app but if they could fix that issue or refund me it would give it a 5 star.
Skips

It’s just ok and kinda expensive
by zzjdjdjdjdncjfjrn on 2019/04/19 10:38
I like that this app has mostly all of my favorite music. However only one person can use the app at a a time if you are paying for their service for 12.99 a month I would expect at least my son and I be able to use the app at the same time. Also, this app will not work outside of the Country, when I was in Canada and Mexico this app would not work. But, other than that, it’s ok.

by Steve5151515 on 2019/04/19 04:08
You can’t switch through channels without adds playing. 3x 30 second adds through music. Bad for the gym. When you try and read album art more visual adds pop up. When changing channels it brings ok you to a payment plan. They aren’t about music, they are only about making money through adds. No way those companies benefit from them because I always turn down the volume or go to YouTube to play music. Too darn frustrating.
Crashing
by Lilac S. on 2019/04/19 01:04
I don’t know if it’s the new update or if it’s just me but the app keeps crashing after playing ONE song and every time I reopen the app it freezes and then crashes again. It hasn’t done that until today. I restart my phone to make sure it’s not it but other apps work perfectly fine and the moment I open Pandora it just keeps doing the same thing. Please fix this :(

by MLWJR91 on 2019/04/19 00:36
It seems like I just get the same songs over and over again, I thumbs up all different songs and just get like the same 20 songs over and over again, if I wanted the 20 same songs and for it to constantly skip I would buy a Walkman CD player and some cds.
Great but...
by Slytherin_Queen۵ on 2019/04/18 22:39
I love this app but I don’t want all the adds and can they add podcasts it’s Pandora shouldn’t it be the best over everything?! But all in all I’ll love the app and I totally recommend it to everyone!
Great App
by Andres0802 on 2019/04/18 21:54
Pandora simply just works well on an iPhone. I have used Apple Music a bit, but Pandora is so easy and does a great job personalizing a station, if one uses Thumbs. I have no trouble finding relatively obscure music, either. Highly recommended.
Urgh
by 🍓🥥 on 2019/04/18 21:49
Your app is really great. But today I had some difficulty skipping my songs when it was on offline mode. I would go to skip a song I didn’t like and it would just start over. And when a song ended it would play again. Other than that it’s a really great app.

In my daily life I must have MUSIC from sun up till sun down! I have tried many other music apps without luck. So when I found Pandora I fell in love! Pandora does so many amazing things like thumbs up, it's creates a playlist of all your likes if you don't have time to create your own list. With Pandora you can Create a name for your playlist, edit and save to your liking. You can download your music and play offline with out issues. Pandora is the way to go if your one that needs music for soul. IN MY KITCHEN WE DANCE!!' Thanks Pandora

I am 49 I couldn’t wait when I was a kid to get my favorite cassettes and pop them into to my Sony Walkman to tune out the world. I thought it could never get better. So happy for technology and smart phones and Bluetooth and Pandora! Pandora has magical elves that read your mind and take you to the place you want to be. I love Pandora. I am transcended into musical nirvana. Keep up the good work. I love you Pandora!!

I love pandora but when I’m done with it I close out and that’s what I want it to do (stop playing music) but when I go back again apparently it is still playing some songs and it was all the good songs that I wanted to hear. But you can’t go back and put 👍 thumbs up. I am very disappointed in pandora.

by Psychic awesomeness on 2019/04/18 15:34
I listen to Pandora constantly because I love the variation and different music stations. But after the last update, there are so many notifications that pop up it is beyond frustrating. If you hit the wrong option as well, it changes settings and brings you to different locations in the app and on your phone. All I want to do is listen to music. After the 100th time of not entering my location for concerts near me, I am still checking no. Now, I am logged out every time and signing in takes 10 minutes, only for the app to crash because of the billion pop ups

by Jesskenz on 2019/04/18 13:00
I love pandora. But it is very irritating that I cannot listen to it on my phone at the same time as my Amazon Alexas. It constantly pops up telling me someone else is listening to Pandora. I pay for the premium subscription and still can only listen on one device? That’s frustrating...
Constant crashes and glitches in CarPlay and getting worse every version
by Nickname?! Why? on 2019/04/18 12:54
Pretty much wha the title says. Every new release makes CarPlay crash more often. Pause pandora? Pandora crashes. Launch pandora? No stations menu about 70% of the time. New update? Pandora now crashes sooner while paused and fails to show stations 90% of the time. I frequently have to unlock my phone and manually restart the app to make it work. Update: months later, the downward trend has continued and CarPlay has pretty much not worked at all for the past several updates. The app hangs on launch if CarPlay is attached, and I haven’t seen the pandora UI at all on my CarPlay screen in months. I have had a pandora sub for years because they are the only service with a recommendation engine that works for me, but I’m just about ready to drop it anyway.
Thumbs down
by Txlnghrn504 on 2019/04/18 11:56
If you really wanna listen to a specific artist, just keep thumbs downing them. They’ll keep popping up no matter how many times you hit that thumbs down button. And if you select an artist radio station, you won’t even hear that artist after about 5 songs.
Panic at the disco
by ssgdgdhsjdkslkskdjdjdhdhshs on 2019/04/18 05:20
Pandora is ugly because it’s making me listen to panic at the disco and twenty one pilots. I’m not a goth e-girl, I just want quality music, goodness. Pandora needs to let me skip the ugly songs because the song is blasting and it’s trying to make me become an e-girl, this is harassment. Please remove panic at the disco from pandora, my ears are bleeding help.

Connect to WiFi for “off line” listening
by Ilikemyhusaberg on 2019/04/18 01:41
I got pandora plus for off line music because my daily commute has areas where Cellular service is not available. The $5.38 I paid for two months did absolutely nothing in the off line areas, the app just said connect to WiFi. At the least I’m dissatisfied and wish I could have gotten my money back. The app has a great set up but it’s just ten times easier to buy music off the App Store I actually like. I hope the development team see’s this review and fixes it if other people are having the same problem. Note my phone is a original iPhone 6 and that might be the issue, I hope this review helps someone thanks for reading.
Please add Siri support
by Ldouglas956 on 2019/04/18 01:41
I love Pandora’s stations generation - absolutely the best. The app works, but has room for improvement. As mentioned, please add Siri support to be able to play stations with a voice command from Siri. Also, why is the app always closing, we can’t keep this running in background like every other app? Pause music for a few minutes and go back to Pandora and it reloads from scratch - memory leak? Other requests include easier offline library building and downloads list to show what’s currently in the queue. Keep up the good work, nobody can pick the music I like like Pandora can.

This app was fine but now I can’t play any songs on my playlists and it ticks me off! You need to be premium to play any song and there’s to many adds. If you would just leave me listen to music I’d be fine but you get an add after about every song and the playlist stops at the most random times... FIX IT!!!!!!

Better off with radio
by MAJ MacReaper on 2019/04/18 00:18
They give you advertisements like no tomorrow and then ask you to listen to a special add to get one hour of uninterrupted listening which is a complete lie. I still get advertisements and cannot skip most of the songs. You're better off listening literally to any radio station whatsoever and you would get fewer advertisements and no "cannot load" instances. I was on good WiFi or good data and would still get many times when Pandora would not load.
Like it!
by Sociology grad student on 2019/04/17 23:57
Fun to use! Although if you add variety to a station do it by song instead of band. I find it gives more of what you're wanting for that station instead of a bunch of random suggestions that don't seem to make much sense for what you're trying to do. Makes it easier instead of constantly having to thumbs down some things. If only Netflix could get the hint also lol!

App takes forever to load no matter where I’m at or on WiFi. Every time I close out app I’m asked to log back in. Does not save new stations MOST IMPORTANTLY, does not let me login in now after update!!!!! Yesterday I had to input incorrect password, press login, then input correct password, press login the it worked, but only once. Now today, nothing. Looks like I’m cancelling my monthly membership and looking for another service. What a shame, I liked Pandora.
Fix the latest update
by Tj 18 on 2019/04/17 20:27
So I don’t have any of the upgrades and it used to be great I love the watch an ad and have free pandora premium for a little bit but since I updated it yesterday it didn’t do that anymore I had great service and it wouldn’t load 1 song I tried everything but nothing worked please fix it because I don’t want to delete the app also THE BUFFERING 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 it won’t even get through 1 song then BAM BUFFERING So now it can’t even load one song. NO MATTER WHAT I DO!! Awful! Do not get this app.

Good Content : Fair Loading Reliability
by GSL-SE Guy on 2018/04/11 15:32
Pandora is smart with assuming what music relates to my chosen bands. They are a little narrow in their offerings from any individual band. For example, if choose a “station” called Supertramp I heat Supertramp’s greatest hits over and over again, which is fine, but if I choose a station based on a specific band, it is safe to assume I like more than just their most popular songs. I should hear their entire catalog. If I choose a genre-based station it is okay to play just hits from various bands in that genre, but if I pick a specific band, Pandora should be smart enough to realize I want everything from that band, not just their hit songs. I also have a frequent connectivity issue. I live in a rural area where it is not uncommon to lose cellular coverage and subsequently my Pandora feed. No problem, I understand this is unavoidable. The problem is that when I regain cellular connectivity Pandora often will not reboot. About half the time I have to turn my phone completely off to get Pandora to restart. This is not safe when I am driving so I either have to pull over or live without Pandora until I get to my destination. I have an iPhone 6s with Apple CarPlay in my vehicle. I love Pandora except for these two issues. Thanks, Mike Kingsley
Love Pandora
by DJaneA on 2018/03/09 09:04
I listen to Ryan Farish radio on Pandora Plus everyday. So relaxing. It has become an addiction. I connect it to my car audio via Bluetooth on the iPhone app and play it on Roku TV while reading, surfing the net and relaxing. I listen to Pandora more than I watch TV. It has a great selection of new age/trance instrumental artists like Ryan Farish (of course), 7 and 5, and Deosil. It throws in some classical, soft jazz, and EDM for variety. Even my bunny likes it! I tried Premium but went back down to Plus. I don’t skip much because it plays most of the music I like that has a thumbs up. I also just like to listen to the music randomly. Most of the songs and artists I like most, could not be replayed or added to playlist on Premium anyways due to licensing. Which is ridiculous considering you’re paying the extra money that should cover this. Another downside is the replay/back button won’t work in the car. I can skip forward using the car’s track button on the steering wheel, but back to replay the song won’t work, especially if the song cannot be replayed because of licensing. I also found the Premium app too confusing. Other than that, love this music. Could listen to it forever.
Crap for free and doesn’t get better with premium
by JordynKLow on 2017/11/05 07:48
Constantly goes offline when I have plenty of service. Now it won’t play the songs on my playlists. I select a song and it chooses a random song from the same playlist. I have premium yet your licensing restrictions require that a lot of the songs I like require to be listened to on the radio part of the app. What’s the point of paying for premium? I’d rather deal with ads. I listen to this app while I’m driving and now with our distracted driving laws in my state this app makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to get it working if it starts wigging out on me. The offline playlists literally play crap music and only play like four songs. When you go back into service it chooses a playlist for you instead of resuming what you had going in the first place. This app is a total waste of money for premium and a total waste of time and effort for commuters without premium. Like if I want to listen to a song over, sure I will listen to an ad but don’t prompt me 7 times about premium before letting me rewind like seriously how am I supposed to listen and drive when the app is asking you 20 freaking questions. Stop making things more of an effort than they need to be. The other day I selected a song and it started randomly playing other songs on that playlist but then immediately choosing another and another and so on. My songs were on a literal shuffle. Get your life together pandora.
LOVE Pandora..BUT!!
by TheGirlGamer202 on 2018/12/02 17:04
Not really enjoying the new update too well.. I mean yes pandora is the best app and I’ve used it for years!! But the new update just makes it a little frustrating because whenever you are listening to the station and go into another one the song plays but then when you’ve gone through all of them and go back to the previous station it just plays the song over and after you play the song for a few seconds it resumes when you go back to that station... overall I love the app but it’s kinda frustrating to have this happen... I miss just going into a station and just having it continue the song even when I don’t have that particular station active. But I hope that you guys can fix this issue and so that I can be satisfied with it again. Thanks for taking the time to read this review sorry it’s kinda long but I’m just trying to get this frustrating issue fixed ASAP... thanks!!! (Ps i agree about the fact that we should be able to like/dislike the songs when you turn the phone on so that we wouldn’t have to unlock the phone every time!!!!) thanks again Hope everyone gets their issues fixed as well as my own!!!!!!!
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.
Yeah the buffering...and no to premium
by Roy from Scranton on 2019/02/06 11:36
So yeah haven’t read all the reviews but the top review was all about buffering and yes that’s my first problem. This ap was my improved radio: yes the setlists held surprises, but it was always on when I needed background music, and the commercials were totally worth what I was getting out of this. My wife is obsessed with another streaming service on my phone and I use that when I really want to listen to something specific, but truthfully Pandora was on 75% of the time for me. Enter the bugs and buffering and freezing and then the final straw: trying to get it to unfreeze, I accidentally disliked a favorite song...then trying to get it back, I signed up for “your free trial of pandora premium!”...yup the magic is gone. The app is deleted and we’ve made sure nothing will be paid for once the trial is over. We had a good thing for many years, Pandora. Literally thousands of songs streamed and I know my ratings have been helpful feedback to you...it just wasn’t enough for you, was it? Well maybe you were ready to move on and I was too happy where we were. I hope our paths cross again one day but for now, I wish you the best and hope you find what you were looking for :’(
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.
Needs updating
by Beccajean89 on 2018/08/10 22:51
I love pandora. I usually have it playing most the day every day. There are just a couple things I wish they would change- 1) when you thumbs down a song, I wish they would give you the option of thumbs downing the song OR thumbs downing the artist. Because in all honesty, I'm not thrilled with having Taylor Swift and Pink pop up and play songs on my CCR and Purple Lace stations. 2) can they give us the option of deleting the variety added on stations? I added a variety song to my station because I really liked the song, but then it completely changed the chemistry of the station and now I'm getting some seriously weird and unrelated stuff on there. And deleting the station and making a new one to restart doesn't work. [[EDIT- I don't know if it was an update or my blind eyes finally noticing, but I can now edit my stations! Thanks Pandora! You just earned an extra star. 😉]] Other than that, there isn't much that I don't like about pandora. They've got some great songs that are great for the stations I've created. And I love that they give me the option of earning some replays and skips. I would give them 5 stars if they could change those two options from above.
Shaka! 2 da Pan do Ra!!!
by IsamuraiZ2sly on 2018/04/22 14:25
Ive moved over, or supposedly up 2 the great I Phone status. Mostly because of an offer and my daughter needed one. But i admit its much better than the ones i had prior. But as expected they cater or offer apps namely music apps of their benefit. I sort of stayed away from the P dora not wanting to feel like a traitor. But somehow your app popped up, and being fm Hawaii. I just gotta have some island/ jawaiian style MsiK! Where the opposite of Orange mSk aPp was clueless and kept showin me empty searches. Dora like the cartoon girl, always lookin for answers n solutions does. Has the MsiK i need like mY psychological/mental fix. U even had all the muSik i had right where me left them. So where Apple has its benefits it offers its customers, which is actually nice. And i see your app has become a little lesss freer. Oh wells. Capitalism. Makes the true potential of man a sick cripple. Its also the pace car that got us here. Kinda drive the donkey gorward, funny that word came out Al Goreward. Or more honestly. Downward. But thank you from a Hawaiian muSik addict. Haha, cuzz i luvs me some local vibes. And it just started playin my Fav Song just about, of all my Life. Safe and Sound - Rebellution.

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.
Awesome songs/tunes, good variety and cool artists!
by Julesrules14 on 2018/07/02 17:20
I love pandora. Been a subscriber and a patron and customer/user for the longest time. Used it since I have heard of it coming out. I got tired of YouTube’s, every other song commercials. So I came to use Pandora an oldie but goodie. Always the best do and will survive. I love the fact that I don’t have to skip commercials and that there are not that many. The music and songs are always playing. I don’t have to wait for a song, no buffering, skipping songs is easy. But why would I want to. There is awesome sound quality, the stations/mixes are excellent. The choices of songs from the playlists are remarkable. I approve of all of them. There isn’t one that I don’t like. I am constantly hitting the 👍. Adding bookmarks, creating stations, sharing, and much more. What else can I say. There isn’t much that I couldn’t not say except no videos. So I have nothing but good things to say "terrific app, incredible and hot hits, lovable songs, bands from all eras and genres. Enjoy the app, I know I am! You will too, I just know it once you try it, just listen, turn up the tunes, start to groove. Kick it! Julia
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 Music ... where words fail Music Speaks
by Buckeye Smile on 2017/11/10 10:16
Since discovering Pandora listening I have found great joy in listening. Music is uplifting, I am able to choose genre that matches my feelings and mood at certain times of the day or Simply to get me going, it energized me! I have used Pandora to soothe my grandchildren when rocking them to sleep or entertain them while playing. I have used it while sitting with gravely I’ll family in Hospice, I have used it when visiting elderly friends playing music that was popular during their era. I have used it to comfort me , rather than relying on pills to help me fall asleep I Listen to music... I enjoy listening to music while working in my flower beds or sitting on my patio. When I don’t want complete silence I fill it with music. Music is like a good friend... it’s always there for me anytime, anywhere. I prefer listening to music rather than watching TV where there is so much trash and negativity that is depressing. Music lifts my spirit, it’s like visiting a counselor but without the high cost... it speaks to me through its words and melodies 🎼🎶🎹🎺🎷🎻so Thank you Pandora🎧🎶
"Premium" upgrade removes key feature
by EricMLarson on 2017/10/14 21:37
For some reason I got some kind of "demo" of Pandora Premium, which is great except for the total loss of the "I'm tired of this track" feature. "But you get unlimited skips! Why would you need that?" Because it's vital to how Pandora actually works: giving a song a thumbs-up defines the kind of music you want to hear on a station, but you might not want to hear that exact song all the time. So the best way to build a Pandora station is to thumb-up all the songs that have the right kind of sound for you, but then put them on the "shelf" if Pandora starts to play them too often. But that feature has apparently been removed from Premium (and Support won't answer me, or tell me how to get out of this demo/trial that I don't want). My only options are to skip the annoying songs every single time they keep coming up... or bookmark them for future reference before giving them a thumbs-down, and mess up the kinds of music that Pandora is going to put into the station until I manually put them back a few weeks later. Their help files don't warn you of this but if you read carefully you'll see that the "Premium" help is in a different category and it doesn't mention the "I'm tired of this track" feature that's described under the regular iOS app help. Beware.
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.
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 😬
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!
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.
Random music of the World
by Bobsyruncle56 on 2018/10/04 02:50
New revision . PANDORA seems to have a positive opening for Smaller Label ; TED artist release of MANY Artist not available to the general public thru DavidByrne world music . EVERY EAR WILL BE LISTENING AT THE “Austin City Limits” , debut , not as a Headliner , but as an < exemplary > artist that many have not the time to ‘ actually Listen to the Lyrics> of their time on Earth.!! Yes . You will actually be making your families life better .. or just following the herd. !! You are NOW in control of your World : Listen too it or let life revolve around you . Listen to the French Horn , Liberty , Bobsyruncle. !!? love Pandora's diversity of music choices, however, am frustrated when it stops ( w/o warning ) in the Radiology suite, as patient's are listening to a Christmas genre. Is this a bandwidth - use issue. I have 5 bars of service ,and have even switched to internet to listen , only to have to select a single artist. If you RECOMMEND it, have the scalability to handle the volume, or don't recommend !! I was forced to turn on Spotify-not what paying customers should fall back on !
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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 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 !
by 2chichi on 2018/09/19 04:36
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.
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
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.
Used to be awesome but then...
by AceKing42 on 2017/10/12 18:52
I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
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?!?
Crashes .. not all songs are playable
by djmmb on 2018/08/04 04:58
I can’t believe that pandora cost so much when it does so little. All the music I want has copy right issues and I can’t play them or download ..pandora says you can only use one user at a time.... Netflix lets you have multiple user for a fee(still cheaper then pandora and it’s freaking movies ) .. just an idea maybe you should drop the price so you can get more people on pandora premium.. and charge a little more for multiple users per account ... and yeah this program crashes all the time I have a iPhone X and it’s really choppy... make the playlist feature more user friendly and a lot more editable.. offline player has a lot of issues when transferring in and out of online and offline .. music some times plays out of the blue when on Bluetooth via car phone ... so yeah the free pandora is mosdeff a 5 star ,premium is a 1 for all the money I’m paying ... thank you for reading ...
I love it!
by Jesus Loves You 123 on 2017/11/15 13:46
I’ve used it for 3 years and it keeps getting better. Minus the commercials between songs that kills my vibe it’s great. I also get annoyed by only have a few song skips. I mean there’s a lot of songs I like and a lot I don’t like, so I like to thumbs them down and skip. But when I run out of song skips then I’m forced to listen to music I hate... so I usually get off the app then. It would be nice if when you both thumbed it down and skipped the song then the skip wouldn’t count. To me it’s different to hate a song and skip it then to just casually not be in the mood for a song that you like but just don’t want to listen to, so you skip it. But anyways, other than those two things it’s overall a great app! It has some great songs that I just have to download to my phone after finding out about them. It always has the newest and oldest of songs of every genre.👍🏼 I can say if you download it you won’t regret it.
I love Pandora, but I have some concerns
by forkliftcat on 2018/08/01 22:56
I love Pandora, use it almost everyday, and have Pandora Plus. But I have some concerns. One being that quite a bit of songs I like have been made unrepeatable. Another is that they change songs and artists, for example on my station they replaced Avicii’s Wake Me Up with a version done by another artist and now I don’t get Avicii’s version but they still have his version in the app. Thirdly is the seeming lack of variety that I get. There’s been several times where I like a song by an artist and don’t get any other song by them, even though Pandora has more songs from them. I would hope that these get resolved at some point, and would also like it if they added more songs from artists like the plenty of TheFatRat songs there are that aren’t on Pandora. I still love Pandora despite these concerns and will continue to use it, and would recommend Pandora to anybody.
Lots of bugs - can’t play songs and frequently offline
by GBTG1 on 2017/11/09 12:32
My Pandora experience has been getting worse and worse - I’ve been struggling to play songs bc it often freezes on any given song and I can’t play or pause or forward to the next song. (Its frozen right now I’m fact) I have the kill the app and try again. The app also frequently takes me offline when I have good connectivity. I’ve also had a problem where my Pandora will start to randomly play in my pocket. When I go to shut it off I try to pause it from the lock screen of my iPhone, which doesn’t work. I then have to authenticate to get into my phone and navigate to the Pandora app to stop the music. Only the pause button in the Pandora app doesn’t work either (meanwhile the music is still playing loudly). Now I need to kill the app which takes several seconds on the iPhone X. Very poor experience overall. The app doesn’t function properly for what it’s designed for and the random playing in my pocket (when my screen is locked btw with a password) is even more horrible, especially when I’m at work and I can’t turn it off!!! Fix these issues please.
Want to Love It
by Repeter5 on 2018/12/29 02:50
I’ve been a Premium subscriber for several months after a long commitment to free Pandora with ads. I decided to subscribe when I started air travel again due to free downloads for long plane trips. I listen daily for hours on end. My major gripe is the lack of originality in the music selection during random play of a station. I consistently feel like I’ve heard every song multiple times and become bored. Yet when I look st the music catalog available for download it has some artists entire collection. Why can’t I get originality? If the algorithm is smart enough you would think it would learn that I’ve heard a dons 20 times this week. Also, the weekly “for me” playlists again is all the same stuff. Yes I could go to an artist and hit play and hear their entire catalog. Add a song to a playlist. Yes yes. I don’t want to! Please figure out a way to dig deeper in the station mix and throw me a bone. I’m bored.
Apple Watch
by Josh skillful on 2018/12/22 00:26
Okay I know that you guys got ride of this a while ago but I finally have time to talk about it. Why did you guys get rid of it I mean I loved it when I am listening to the app if I want to change the station or like the song etc I didn’t have to find my phone and unlock it to do that when all I have to do is on on my watch and do it. I mean when I am mowing my lawn if I want to do on of those things I don’t have to stop pull out my phone and then unlock it and so forth when I could just use my watch so I don’t have to stop. So I still don’t get why you guys got rid of it you can still make another app just for the Apple Watch and you can log into your account there too or you can bring it back just how it was or you can add a turn off Apple Watch mode so it won’t work it come up how it is on your phone if you guys want to do that. I just want it back it helped out a lot. Please bring it back.

Functionality is not good
by A user 164947161ajdnf on 2019/04/20 06:13
Has a lot of issues. Often end up listening to 3-5 ads in a row instead of the 1 because it keeps throwing errors and makes me repeat the “listen to ad”. So 1 star rating for sketchy ad practices

Same songs
by queenliz3324 on 2019/04/20 02:30
I’ve been a pandora customer for a while and I have started to notice, no matter what station you chose the same songs are played over and over again. I’m considering going with another music streaming service. None of the latest music.
More adds now

by heygomertoo on 2019/04/20 01:53
I like the radio stations on Pandora. Play is a good mix of the group that I like plus other similar groups. Cons: it will skip a song rather than continue to play it. It would be nice if it just continued playing when I got back in the car.. annoying.

by TeoStarsOnly on 2019/04/20 01:14
Need to do a bug fix...new commercials freeze the return to music function and the station has to be manually switched to a different station.....
The best music app to use!
by K Jayde H on 2019/04/20 01:08
This app has a great way of organizing the music categories! It also has a low price feature of offline listening!! It is the best app to use by far, and will also let you go off of the app and use other apps while your background music plays!! All of the latest hits and newest songs are available too!
Skipping song issue
by Golgi App on 2019/04/20 00:58
On my 2016 Hyundai Elantra I would press the skip button once and sometimes it would skip 2 or 3 songs. It’s discouraging when it skips a song I love and it uses up my limited skips.
Enjoyable

I just enjoy listening to Pandora all the time especially with the different stations. In with Pandora in Zachary.

Irritating
by lanan1990 on 2019/04/19 19:14
I got harassed to pay so I got the $5.. they are still harassing me to pay for premium. It’s annoying af I’m already a customer! Very greedy. Lately the app keeps shutting off. It will auto play 3 songs on a channel and then cut off. When I reopen it replays the last song it played. I updated the app and my phone. Same issue. Please fix it and stop badgering me for money!
The right Box
by Mr. Q. Mack on 2019/04/19 17:59
My everyday has to have Pandora. I mean no matter what mood I am in they have the station for me. Either when I am coaching, working a personal training session or just cleaning the house. Its always a good time with Pandora. It truly is the right box because there is something in their for every person, purpose and party. Its just right.

Pandora music changed
by memajules on 2019/04/19 15:40
I had been using the free Pandora and just loved the selection of music in the Norah Jones station. I opted to purchase the monthly package so I could listen to that same station while offline. Since that time the music selection has changed. Trying to get it back to where it had been. Still enjoying the music

Used to love this app
by happy_purchase on 2019/04/19 13:31
I used to love this app, which is i I started paying for the premium membership, but as of the last couple months every time I download a playlist and try listening to it on shuffle, it skips through the WHOLE playlist in a matter of seconds and goes on auto play. I hoped that the updates you fix this Pringle’s but it has only gotten worse. With the most recent update it actually started playing 3 songs at the same time. 3! I am not happy and I really that pandora fixes these problems soon.

For the music lovers
by Aura belaskyni on 2019/04/19 12:21
Grate app I’d recommend it to any music lover but it’s really annoying when your song is blocked for legal reasons and it tells you to make a station but you never end up hearing it
If they could fix this it could be a 5 star!
by Lmao72764539 on 2019/04/19 12:01
I was going to try the pandora plus free trial to see if I would purchase it later on, but it never gave me the initial free month subscription and automatically charged me without letting me know. I love the app but if they could fix that issue or refund me it would give it a 5 star.
Skips

It’s just ok and kinda expensive
by zzjdjdjdjdncjfjrn on 2019/04/19 10:38
I like that this app has mostly all of my favorite music. However only one person can use the app at a a time if you are paying for their service for 12.99 a month I would expect at least my son and I be able to use the app at the same time. Also, this app will not work outside of the Country, when I was in Canada and Mexico this app would not work. But, other than that, it’s ok.

by Steve5151515 on 2019/04/19 04:08
You can’t switch through channels without adds playing. 3x 30 second adds through music. Bad for the gym. When you try and read album art more visual adds pop up. When changing channels it brings ok you to a payment plan. They aren’t about music, they are only about making money through adds. No way those companies benefit from them because I always turn down the volume or go to YouTube to play music. Too darn frustrating.
Crashing
by Lilac S. on 2019/04/19 01:04
I don’t know if it’s the new update or if it’s just me but the app keeps crashing after playing ONE song and every time I reopen the app it freezes and then crashes again. It hasn’t done that until today. I restart my phone to make sure it’s not it but other apps work perfectly fine and the moment I open Pandora it just keeps doing the same thing. Please fix this :(

It seems like I just get the same songs over and over again, I thumbs up all different songs and just get like the same 20 songs over and over again, if I wanted the 20 same songs and for it to constantly skip I would buy a Walkman CD player and some cds.
Great but...
by Slytherin_Queen۵ on 2019/04/18 22:39
I love this app but I don’t want all the adds and can they add podcasts it’s Pandora shouldn’t it be the best over everything?! But all in all I’ll love the app and I totally recommend it to everyone!
Great App
by Andres0802 on 2019/04/18 21:54
Pandora simply just works well on an iPhone. I have used Apple Music a bit, but Pandora is so easy and does a great job personalizing a station, if one uses Thumbs. I have no trouble finding relatively obscure music, either. Highly recommended.
Urgh
by 🍓🥥 on 2019/04/18 21:49
Your app is really great. But today I had some difficulty skipping my songs when it was on offline mode. I would go to skip a song I didn’t like and it would just start over. And when a song ended it would play again. Other than that it’s a really great app.

With Pandora you can Create a name for your playlist, edit and save to your liking. You can download your music and play offline with out issues.

So happy for technology and smart phones and Bluetooth and Pandora! Pandora has magical elves that read your mind and take you to the place you want to be. I love Pandora. I am transcended into musical nirvana. Keep up the good work. I love you Pandora!!

But you can’t go back and put 👍 thumbs up. I am very disappointed in pandora.

I listen to Pandora constantly because I love the variation and different music stations. But after the last update, there are so many notifications that pop up it is beyond frustrating. If you hit the wrong option as well, it changes settings and brings you to different locations in the app and on your phone. All I want to do is listen to music. After the 100th time of not entering my location for concerts near me, I am still checking no. Now, I am logged out every time and signing in takes 10 minutes, only for the app to crash because of the billion pop ups

I love pandora. But it is very irritating that I cannot listen to it on my phone at the same time as my Amazon Alexas. It constantly pops up telling me someone else is listening to Pandora. I pay for the premium subscription and still can only listen on one device? That’s frustrating...
Constant crashes and glitches in CarPlay and getting worse every version
by Nickname?! Why? on 2019/04/18 12:54
Pretty much wha the title says. Every new release makes CarPlay crash more often. Pause pandora? Pandora crashes. Launch pandora? No stations menu about 70% of the time. New update? Pandora now crashes sooner while paused and fails to show stations 90% of the time. I frequently have to unlock my phone and manually restart the app to make it work. Update: months later, the downward trend has continued and CarPlay has pretty much not worked at all for the past several updates. The app hangs on launch if CarPlay is attached, and I haven’t seen the pandora UI at all on my CarPlay screen in months. I have had a pandora sub for years because they are the only service with a recommendation engine that works for me, but I’m just about ready to drop it anyway.
Thumbs down
by Txlnghrn504 on 2019/04/18 11:56
If you really wanna listen to a specific artist, just keep thumbs downing them. They’ll keep popping up no matter how many times you hit that thumbs down button. And if you select an artist radio station, you won’t even hear that artist after about 5 songs.
Panic at the disco
by ssgdgdhsjdkslkskdjdjdhdhshs on 2019/04/18 05:20
Pandora is ugly because it’s making me listen to panic at the disco and twenty one pilots. I’m not a goth e-girl, I just want quality music, goodness. Pandora needs to let me skip the ugly songs because the song is blasting and it’s trying to make me become an e-girl, this is harassment. Please remove panic at the disco from pandora, my ears are bleeding help.

Connect to WiFi for “off line” listening
by Ilikemyhusaberg on 2019/04/18 01:41
I got pandora plus for off line music because my daily commute has areas where Cellular service is not available. The $5.38 I paid for two months did absolutely nothing in the off line areas, the app just said connect to WiFi. At the least I’m dissatisfied and wish I could have gotten my money back. The app has a great set up but it’s just ten times easier to buy music off the App Store I actually like. I hope the development team see’s this review and fixes it if other people are having the same problem. Note my phone is a original iPhone 6 and that might be the issue, I hope this review helps someone thanks for reading.
Please add Siri support
by Ldouglas956 on 2019/04/18 01:41
I love Pandora’s stations generation - absolutely the best. The app works, but has room for improvement. As mentioned, please add Siri support to be able to play stations with a voice command from Siri. Also, why is the app always closing, we can’t keep this running in background like every other app? Pause music for a few minutes and go back to Pandora and it reloads from scratch - memory leak? Other requests include easier offline library building and downloads list to show what’s currently in the queue. Keep up the good work, nobody can pick the music I like like Pandora can.

This app was fine but now I can’t play any songs on my playlists and it ticks me off! You need to be premium to play any song and there’s to many adds. If you would just leave me listen to music I’d be fine but you get an add after about every song and the playlist stops at the most random times... FIX IT!!!!!!

Better off with radio
by MAJ MacReaper on 2019/04/18 00:18
They give you advertisements like no tomorrow and then ask you to listen to a special add to get one hour of uninterrupted listening which is a complete lie. I still get advertisements and cannot skip most of the songs. You're better off listening literally to any radio station whatsoever and you would get fewer advertisements and no "cannot load" instances. I was on good WiFi or good data and would still get many times when Pandora would not load.
Like it!
by Sociology grad student on 2019/04/17 23:57
Fun to use! Although if you add variety to a station do it by song instead of band. I find it gives more of what you're wanting for that station instead of a bunch of random suggestions that don't seem to make much sense for what you're trying to do. Makes it easier instead of constantly having to thumbs down some things. If only Netflix could get the hint also lol!

Does not save new stations MOST IMPORTANTLY, does not let me login in now after update!!!!! Yesterday I had to input incorrect password, press login, then input correct password, press login the it worked, but only once. Now today, nothing. Looks like I’m cancelling my monthly membership and looking for another service. What a shame, I liked Pandora.
Fix the latest update

So I don’t have any of the upgrades and it used to be great I love the watch an ad and have free pandora premium for a little bit but since I updated it yesterday it didn’t do that anymore I had great service and it wouldn’t load 1 song I tried everything but nothing worked please fix it because I don’t want to delete the app also THE BUFFERING 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 it won’t even get through 1 song then BAM BUFFERING So now it can’t even load one song. NO MATTER WHAT I DO!! Awful! Do not get this app.

Good Content : Fair Loading Reliability
by GSL-SE Guy on 2018/04/11 15:32
Pandora is smart with assuming what music relates to my chosen bands. They are a little narrow in their offerings from any individual band. For example, if choose a “station” called Supertramp I heat Supertramp’s greatest hits over and over again, which is fine, but if I choose a station based on a specific band, it is safe to assume I like more than just their most popular songs. I should hear their entire catalog. If I choose a genre-based station it is okay to play just hits from various bands in that genre, but if I pick a specific band, Pandora should be smart enough to realize I want everything from that band, not just their hit songs. I also have a frequent connectivity issue. I live in a rural area where it is not uncommon to lose cellular coverage and subsequently my Pandora feed. No problem, I understand this is unavoidable. The problem is that when I regain cellular connectivity Pandora often will not reboot. About half the time I have to turn my phone completely off to get Pandora to restart. This is not safe when I am driving so I either have to pull over or live without Pandora until I get to my destination. I have an iPhone 6s with Apple CarPlay in my vehicle. I love Pandora except for these two issues. Thanks, Mike Kingsley
Love Pandora
by DJaneA on 2018/03/09 09:04
I listen to Ryan Farish radio on Pandora Plus everyday. So relaxing. It has become an addiction. I connect it to my car audio via Bluetooth on the iPhone app and play it on Roku TV while reading, surfing the net and relaxing. I listen to Pandora more than I watch TV. It has a great selection of new age/trance instrumental artists like Ryan Farish (of course), 7 and 5, and Deosil. It throws in some classical, soft jazz, and EDM for variety. Even my bunny likes it! I tried Premium but went back down to Plus. I don’t skip much because it plays most of the music I like that has a thumbs up. I also just like to listen to the music randomly. Most of the songs and artists I like most, could not be replayed or added to playlist on Premium anyways due to licensing. Which is ridiculous considering you’re paying the extra money that should cover this. Another downside is the replay/back button won’t work in the car. I can skip forward using the car’s track button on the steering wheel, but back to replay the song won’t work, especially if the song cannot be replayed because of licensing. I also found the Premium app too confusing. Other than that, love this music. Could listen to it forever.
Crap for free and doesn’t get better with premium
by JordynKLow on 2017/11/05 07:48
Constantly goes offline when I have plenty of service. Now it won’t play the songs on my playlists. I select a song and it chooses a random song from the same playlist. I have premium yet your licensing restrictions require that a lot of the songs I like require to be listened to on the radio part of the app. What’s the point of paying for premium? I’d rather deal with ads. I listen to this app while I’m driving and now with our distracted driving laws in my state this app makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to get it working if it starts wigging out on me. The offline playlists literally play crap music and only play like four songs. When you go back into service it chooses a playlist for you instead of resuming what you had going in the first place. This app is a total waste of money for premium and a total waste of time and effort for commuters without premium. Like if I want to listen to a song over, sure I will listen to an ad but don’t prompt me 7 times about premium before letting me rewind like seriously how am I supposed to listen and drive when the app is asking you 20 freaking questions. Stop making things more of an effort than they need to be. The other day I selected a song and it started randomly playing other songs on that playlist but then immediately choosing another and another and so on. My songs were on a literal shuffle. Get your life together pandora.
LOVE Pandora..BUT!!
by TheGirlGamer202 on 2018/12/02 17:04
Not really enjoying the new update too well.. I mean yes pandora is the best app and I’ve used it for years!! But the new update just makes it a little frustrating because whenever you are listening to the station and go into another one the song plays but then when you’ve gone through all of them and go back to the previous station it just plays the song over and after you play the song for a few seconds it resumes when you go back to that station... overall I love the app but it’s kinda frustrating to have this happen... I miss just going into a station and just having it continue the song even when I don’t have that particular station active. But I hope that you guys can fix this issue and so that I can be satisfied with it again. Thanks for taking the time to read this review sorry it’s kinda long but I’m just trying to get this frustrating issue fixed ASAP... thanks!!! (Ps i agree about the fact that we should be able to like/dislike the songs when you turn the phone on so that we wouldn’t have to unlock the phone every time!!!!) thanks again Hope everyone gets their issues fixed as well as my own!!!!!!!
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.
Yeah the buffering...and no to premium
by Roy from Scranton on 2019/02/06 11:36
So yeah haven’t read all the reviews but the top review was all about buffering and yes that’s my first problem. This ap was my improved radio: yes the setlists held surprises, but it was always on when I needed background music, and the commercials were totally worth what I was getting out of this. My wife is obsessed with another streaming service on my phone and I use that when I really want to listen to something specific, but truthfully Pandora was on 75% of the time for me. Enter the bugs and buffering and freezing and then the final straw: trying to get it to unfreeze, I accidentally disliked a favorite song...then trying to get it back, I signed up for “your free trial of pandora premium!”...yup the magic is gone. The app is deleted and we’ve made sure nothing will be paid for once the trial is over. We had a good thing for many years, Pandora. Literally thousands of songs streamed and I know my ratings have been helpful feedback to you...it just wasn’t enough for you, was it? Well maybe you were ready to move on and I was too happy where we were. I hope our paths cross again one day but for now, I wish you the best and hope you find what you were looking for :’(
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.
Needs updating
by Beccajean89 on 2018/08/10 22:51
I love pandora. I usually have it playing most the day every day. There are just a couple things I wish they would change- 1) when you thumbs down a song, I wish they would give you the option of thumbs downing the song OR thumbs downing the artist. Because in all honesty, I'm not thrilled with having Taylor Swift and Pink pop up and play songs on my CCR and Purple Lace stations. 2) can they give us the option of deleting the variety added on stations? I added a variety song to my station because I really liked the song, but then it completely changed the chemistry of the station and now I'm getting some seriously weird and unrelated stuff on there. And deleting the station and making a new one to restart doesn't work. [[EDIT- I don't know if it was an update or my blind eyes finally noticing, but I can now edit my stations! Thanks Pandora! You just earned an extra star. 😉]] Other than that, there isn't much that I don't like about pandora. They've got some great songs that are great for the stations I've created. And I love that they give me the option of earning some replays and skips. I would give them 5 stars if they could change those two options from above.
Shaka! 2 da Pan do Ra!!!
by IsamuraiZ2sly on 2018/04/22 14:25
Ive moved over, or supposedly up 2 the great I Phone status. Mostly because of an offer and my daughter needed one. But i admit its much better than the ones i had prior. But as expected they cater or offer apps namely music apps of their benefit. I sort of stayed away from the P dora not wanting to feel like a traitor. But somehow your app popped up, and being fm Hawaii. I just gotta have some island/ jawaiian style MsiK! Where the opposite of Orange mSk aPp was clueless and kept showin me empty searches. Dora like the cartoon girl, always lookin for answers n solutions does. Has the MsiK i need like mY psychological/mental fix. U even had all the muSik i had right where me left them. So where Apple has its benefits it offers its customers, which is actually nice. And i see your app has become a little lesss freer. Oh wells. Capitalism. Makes the true potential of man a sick cripple. Its also the pace car that got us here. Kinda drive the donkey gorward, funny that word came out Al Goreward. Or more honestly. Downward. But thank you from a Hawaiian muSik addict. Haha, cuzz i luvs me some local vibes. And it just started playin my Fav Song just about, of all my Life. Safe and Sound - Rebellution.

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.
Awesome songs/tunes, good variety and cool artists!
by Julesrules14 on 2018/07/02 17:20
I love pandora. Been a subscriber and a patron and customer/user for the longest time. Used it since I have heard of it coming out. I got tired of YouTube’s, every other song commercials. So I came to use Pandora an oldie but goodie. Always the best do and will survive. I love the fact that I don’t have to skip commercials and that there are not that many. The music and songs are always playing. I don’t have to wait for a song, no buffering, skipping songs is easy. But why would I want to. There is awesome sound quality, the stations/mixes are excellent. The choices of songs from the playlists are remarkable. I approve of all of them. There isn’t one that I don’t like. I am constantly hitting the 👍. Adding bookmarks, creating stations, sharing, and much more. What else can I say. There isn’t much that I couldn’t not say except no videos. So I have nothing but good things to say "terrific app, incredible and hot hits, lovable songs, bands from all eras and genres. Enjoy the app, I know I am! You will too, I just know it once you try it, just listen, turn up the tunes, start to groove. Kick it! Julia
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 Music ... where words fail Music Speaks
by Buckeye Smile on 2017/11/10 10:16
Since discovering Pandora listening I have found great joy in listening. Music is uplifting, I am able to choose genre that matches my feelings and mood at certain times of the day or Simply to get me going, it energized me! I have used Pandora to soothe my grandchildren when rocking them to sleep or entertain them while playing. I have used it while sitting with gravely I’ll family in Hospice, I have used it when visiting elderly friends playing music that was popular during their era. I have used it to comfort me , rather than relying on pills to help me fall asleep I Listen to music... I enjoy listening to music while working in my flower beds or sitting on my patio. When I don’t want complete silence I fill it with music. Music is like a good friend... it’s always there for me anytime, anywhere. I prefer listening to music rather than watching TV where there is so much trash and negativity that is depressing. Music lifts my spirit, it’s like visiting a counselor but without the high cost... it speaks to me through its words and melodies 🎼🎶🎹🎺🎷🎻so Thank you Pandora🎧🎶
"Premium" upgrade removes key feature
by EricMLarson on 2017/10/14 21:37
For some reason I got some kind of "demo" of Pandora Premium, which is great except for the total loss of the "I'm tired of this track" feature. "But you get unlimited skips! Why would you need that?" Because it's vital to how Pandora actually works: giving a song a thumbs-up defines the kind of music you want to hear on a station, but you might not want to hear that exact song all the time. So the best way to build a Pandora station is to thumb-up all the songs that have the right kind of sound for you, but then put them on the "shelf" if Pandora starts to play them too often. But that feature has apparently been removed from Premium (and Support won't answer me, or tell me how to get out of this demo/trial that I don't want). My only options are to skip the annoying songs every single time they keep coming up... or bookmark them for future reference before giving them a thumbs-down, and mess up the kinds of music that Pandora is going to put into the station until I manually put them back a few weeks later. Their help files don't warn you of this but if you read carefully you'll see that the "Premium" help is in a different category and it doesn't mention the "I'm tired of this track" feature that's described under the regular iOS app help. Beware.
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.
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 😬
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!
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.
Random music of the World
by Bobsyruncle56 on 2018/10/04 02:50
New revision . PANDORA seems to have a positive opening for Smaller Label ; TED artist release of MANY Artist not available to the general public thru DavidByrne world music . EVERY EAR WILL BE LISTENING AT THE “Austin City Limits” , debut , not as a Headliner , but as an < exemplary > artist that many have not the time to ‘ actually Listen to the Lyrics> of their time on Earth.!! Yes . You will actually be making your families life better .. or just following the herd. !! You are NOW in control of your World : Listen too it or let life revolve around you . Listen to the French Horn , Liberty , Bobsyruncle. !!? love Pandora's diversity of music choices, however, am frustrated when it stops ( w/o warning ) in the Radiology suite, as patient's are listening to a Christmas genre. Is this a bandwidth - use issue. I have 5 bars of service ,and have even switched to internet to listen , only to have to select a single artist. If you RECOMMEND it, have the scalability to handle the volume, or don't recommend !! I was forced to turn on Spotify-not what paying customers should fall back on !
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!

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.
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
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
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 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 !
by 2chichi on 2018/09/19 04:36
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.
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
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.
Used to be awesome but then...
by AceKing42 on 2017/10/12 18:52
I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
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?!?
Crashes .. not all songs are playable
by djmmb on 2018/08/04 04:58
I can’t believe that pandora cost so much when it does so little. All the music I want has copy right issues and I can’t play them or download ..pandora says you can only use one user at a time.... Netflix lets you have multiple user for a fee(still cheaper then pandora and it’s freaking movies ) .. just an idea maybe you should drop the price so you can get more people on pandora premium.. and charge a little more for multiple users per account ... and yeah this program crashes all the time I have a iPhone X and it’s really choppy... make the playlist feature more user friendly and a lot more editable.. offline player has a lot of issues when transferring in and out of online and offline .. music some times plays out of the blue when on Bluetooth via car phone ... so yeah the free pandora is mosdeff a 5 star ,premium is a 1 for all the money I’m paying ... thank you for reading ...
I love it!
by Jesus Loves You 123 on 2017/11/15 13:46
I’ve used it for 3 years and it keeps getting better. Minus the commercials between songs that kills my vibe it’s great. I also get annoyed by only have a few song skips. I mean there’s a lot of songs I like and a lot I don’t like, so I like to thumbs them down and skip. But when I run out of song skips then I’m forced to listen to music I hate... so I usually get off the app then. It would be nice if when you both thumbed it down and skipped the song then the skip wouldn’t count. To me it’s different to hate a song and skip it then to just casually not be in the mood for a song that you like but just don’t want to listen to, so you skip it. But anyways, other than those two things it’s overall a great app! It has some great songs that I just have to download to my phone after finding out about them. It always has the newest and oldest of songs of every genre.👍🏼 I can say if you download it you won’t regret it.
I love Pandora, but I have some concerns
by forkliftcat on 2018/08/01 22:56
I love Pandora, use it almost everyday, and have Pandora Plus. But I have some concerns. One being that quite a bit of songs I like have been made unrepeatable. Another is that they change songs and artists, for example on my station they replaced Avicii’s Wake Me Up with a version done by another artist and now I don’t get Avicii’s version but they still have his version in the app. Thirdly is the seeming lack of variety that I get. There’s been several times where I like a song by an artist and don’t get any other song by them, even though Pandora has more songs from them. I would hope that these get resolved at some point, and would also like it if they added more songs from artists like the plenty of TheFatRat songs there are that aren’t on Pandora. I still love Pandora despite these concerns and will continue to use it, and would recommend Pandora to anybody.
Lots of bugs - can’t play songs and frequently offline
by GBTG1 on 2017/11/09 12:32
My Pandora experience has been getting worse and worse - I’ve been struggling to play songs bc it often freezes on any given song and I can’t play or pause or forward to the next song. (Its frozen right now I’m fact) I have the kill the app and try again. The app also frequently takes me offline when I have good connectivity. I’ve also had a problem where my Pandora will start to randomly play in my pocket. When I go to shut it off I try to pause it from the lock screen of my iPhone, which doesn’t work. I then have to authenticate to get into my phone and navigate to the Pandora app to stop the music. Only the pause button in the Pandora app doesn’t work either (meanwhile the music is still playing loudly). Now I need to kill the app which takes several seconds on the iPhone X. Very poor experience overall. The app doesn’t function properly for what it’s designed for and the random playing in my pocket (when my screen is locked btw with a password) is even more horrible, especially when I’m at work and I can’t turn it off!!! Fix these issues please.
Want to Love It

I’ve been a Premium subscriber for several months after a long commitment to free Pandora with ads. I decided to subscribe when I started air travel again due to free downloads for long plane trips. I listen daily for hours on end. My major gripe is the lack of originality in the music selection during random play of a station. I consistently feel like I’ve heard every song multiple times and become bored. Yet when I look st the music catalog available for download it has some artists entire collection. Why can’t I get originality? If the algorithm is smart enough you would think it would learn that I’ve heard a dons 20 times this week. Also, the weekly “for me” playlists again is all the same stuff. Yes I could go to an artist and hit play and hear their entire catalog. Add a song to a playlist. Yes yes. I don’t want to! Please figure out a way to dig deeper in the station mix and throw me a bone. I’m bored.
Apple Watch
by Josh skillful on 2018/12/22 00:26
Okay I know that you guys got ride of this a while ago but I finally have time to talk about it. Why did you guys get rid of it I mean I loved it when I am listening to the app if I want to change the station or like the song etc I didn’t have to find my phone and unlock it to do that when all I have to do is on on my watch and do it. I mean when I am mowing my lawn if I want to do on of those things I don’t have to stop pull out my phone and then unlock it and so forth when I could just use my watch so I don’t have to stop. So I still don’t get why you guys got rid of it you can still make another app just for the Apple Watch and you can log into your account there too or you can bring it back just how it was or you can add a turn off Apple Watch mode so it won’t work it come up how it is on your phone if you guys want to do that. I just want it back it helped out a lot. Please bring it back.
