I’m a casual user and like the music selection and I can live with the ads. However, it seems like the developers didn’t put any thought into the sleep timer. How about a real and useful timer?

I didn’t want to bother with paying $9.99 a month for Apple or Tidal, so I went back to old faithful. Pandora has put me on to a lot of songs that are now my favorite. Naturally, I could do without the ads, but I get it. Great app overall 😊

by tdickson31 on 2017/11/18 22:59
I purchased the premium version just to be able to use it with my Fitbit Ionic. The interface between the Ionic is less than OK. Hopefully this will be addressed in the next update for Ionic. I also would like to see a family plan available as is for Spotify and ITunes.

Would be five stars if...
by Laura769 on 2017/11/18 22:17
If I could use Pandora with my Bluetooth Hands Free in the car it would be five stars. In all other cases it is a great way to hear the music you are interested in. We really enjoy making our own stations and investigating new kinds of music on Pandora.

You know i really like pandora because it has a variety of music and good songs . But one thing that pisses me off is when im playing music and it makes my phone restart! I know this is only Pandora and not my phone because this is the ONLY DAMM APP THAT MAKES MY PHONE DO THAT! Even after they release an update, they still dont fix that problem! Honestly going to switch to Spotify, tired of it restarting my phone!!!🤬🤬
Broke with a recent update
by JDinNC on 2017/11/18 21:34
This used to be one of my most frequently used apps and one of my favorites. Unfortunately, a recent update blew it up completely. Cuts out every ten minutes or so, making you start over. Not too convenient if you’re mid-run. The bigger problem? The alarm stopped working. Been using this to wake up for a few years. All of a sudden it doesn’t work. Did all the typical troubleshooting steps. Nothing. Contacted support. Told them I did all the usual steps. Of course they told me to do them all again. After repeating all the steps told them it still didn’t work so the escalated my ticket to engineering. They got back to me the next day and said it was a “known issue”. Awesome. That was two weeks ago and I still haven’t seen an update and nothing’s changed. Still not working.

Let’s put it this way... As long as Pandora doesn’t follow suit and sell itself to the corporates like YouTube and the others have, there is hope for all of us who truly appreciate the outstanding music that people all over the world are creating. Fingers crossed...
What’s going on?
by Diamond Whitelaw on 2017/11/18 20:21
I don’t know what’s going on with Pandora but it won’t play my music when i open the app. It always says buffering and then i have to wait at least 10-15 mins for it to work or it doesn’t work at all and just closes out the app. I’ve updated it many times and the same thing still happens. I love Pandora but i would hate to uninstall the app and unsubscribe.

Help me out please
by Lilredsrt on 2017/11/18 16:15
I’m giving the app 5 start due to how long I’ve had and loved pandora. But, I’m having serious issue since I switched to the new premium version. Under updates 11 and higher when using the app on my iPhone 7plus, my phone gets REALLY hot and starts draining the battery very rapidly. In my iPhone settings under battery usage, this app is definitely the culprit. Any help would be great because I keep hoping every update that comes out it would be fixed but nothing yet. This occurs with WiFi and cellular use. Really hope you guys see this.

Constantly Requires Close and Restart for Alpine units
by Mbrogz3000 on 2017/11/18 14:25
Pandora used to work pretty well with my Alpine CDE W265BT head unit, but ever since the update from about 3 weeks ago, now the app never works on first try. I always plug in the lightning cable instead of Bluetooth for better audio quality - so it’s pretty unacceptable and disappointing that a modern iPhone 8 and head-unit advertised to work with Pandora do not properly work together. I now must enter the Pandora app, then close it out, then plug it into my head unit in order for music to play. It used to be seamless operation, but now it’s just terrible and distracting. Oh...and usually after a Pandora update, which seems to be weekly, it’s your responsibility to go into settings and set the audio quality back to High again since it usually defaults back low quality. The music stations also constantly play the same 20 or so songs— it’s like having that same mix cd playing the same music all the time. Despite the claims of creating a curated playlists for paying customers (like me)..its still the listener’s responsibility to constantly tell the app that a song had been played too much (which is a buried setting/feature). The thumbs up and down is flat out ignored in some cases. Between making non-paying customers listen to 60 seconds of ads for every one song played, and just terrible application performance...it’s no wonder the teenagers are flocking away from this service.

App crash/phone reboot
by Alex61780 on 2017/11/18 14:02

by upwitdat on 2017/11/18 13:28
Pandora does pull a lot of good songs. It’s a good music app that enable to discover songs that I like but haven’t heard before. The downside is the large amount of songs that I have already heard on the radio and YouTube. Another drawback is the high amount of songs that are from years ago. I would like more music that haven’t aired on the radio and no older than five years.

Saved songs are deleted and cannot be added back
by N1ghtw1ng29 on 2017/11/18 07:34
I have pandora premium. And when add songs, sometimes the app forgets that I added those songs. When I go to the specific song to add it, it’ll say “Song added to My Music” but the plus sign stays there and it does not add the song
Glitchy
by Awesomejellypancake on 2017/11/18 06:39
Randomly shuts off. Freezes and then kicks me out my phone. I try to open the app and it stays frozen till I click around on different stations. It used to work perfectly. It’s horrible now. Hope it gets fixed soon.

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.
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.
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! 😁
"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.
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🎧🎶
It Used to Work
by WhoReleasedThisCr*p on 2017/11/02 02:23
Pandora used to be my go-to music app. I was introduced to artists I never knew existed because they were similar to what I already enjoyed. When I got a new car with SYNC3, Pandora was rock solid. I could move from house to car and back without missing a beat. But several months ago, Pandora started having problems. When I get in the car, especially when using CarPlay, there’s no better than a 10% chance that I’ll be able to open Pandora, select a playlist and actually hear music. Most of the time it will give me a list of my playlists, but selecting a playlist just snaps back and does nothing no matter how many times I select it. Sometimes the app on the phone tells me “Poor network connection”, or its stuck asking me to start a free trial, or there’s a “Skip to Pandora” button. But you know what’s not there? Music! My home wi-fi is unchanged. There are no new cell towers. I have at least three bars. There is no reason why I can’t do today what I did for months without any problems, and that’s listen to music. So I have deleted the app and reinstalled twice. If I have to delete again, there won’t be another installation. And that’s sad because an app that once brought me so much good music and introduced me to so many artists, now brings only daily frustration.
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.
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.

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
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 👌🏼
Pandora used to be great
by Ne3na on 2017/11/02 07:35
Now it’s not. There are so. Many. Ads. It’s like every 2 minutes there’s this annoying 30 second to one minute ad playing and its usually about paying to stop the ads and get pandora prime or whatever it’s called. Thumbprint radio would have also been an awesome idea if it wasn’t for the fact that pandora is more than likely lying about the amount of songs it has. How else can you explain the fact that I’m stuck listening to the same songs that are pretty much on an endless loop and shuffled? I swear the other day it played the same exact song twice in a row, but I was all out of skips and had to listen to it again. That’s another thing! Why do we have to pay to skip songs? Why do we have to pay for music to keep playing for more than two hours? I came to pandora because I didn’t want to spend money! I wouldn’t want to waste my money on pandora anyway, especially if it just puts songs on an hour loop. I even have a lullaby radio and I’m pretty sure I’ve heard every song that it has to offer at least twice now, if not more. At this point, the only reason I have pandora is because of that lullaby radio.
I love it!

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.
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.
Positive New Life Thanks to Pandora
by Tricia Tobias on 2017/09/24 21:05
Pandora was introduced to me as I was in one of the worst turmoils of my life. God will never give you more than you can handle they say..... But it was only because of Pandora that I survived!! Simply having the ability to allow the perfect song at the perfect time come through the tiny iPhone speaker was priceless. Forced to quit my successful job of 13 years to stay at home to take care of our 3 daughters..... After years of mental, emotional, financial and then physical abuse I was relieved when I came home and all my husbands clothes and belongings were gone...... it was a difficult divorce but Because of Pandora I was able to overcome the Obstacles, the Crushing barriers that would otherwise make someone give up or loose hope and become cold towards life and existence..... Thank You Pandora and all the musicians and audio industry for saving me and my 3 young daughters Lives Forever!! Thank you!!💖Tricia Tobias

by Ali_in_KC on 2017/10/19 20:18
I’ve been with pandora for years and have had no complaints until recently. It seems that for every three songs you listen to they will then have you listen to two commercials. That was annoying but I had invested my thumbs up on enough songs that I had a great mix of music to listen to throughout the day with not many repeats so it seemed like starting over would be a pain. This week I’m considering deleting it and finding an alternative. I don’t want to start over but they’ve started playing a commercial that is entirely in Spanish and I hear it like every thirty minutes. I can’t understand a word of it other than the company whose ad it is. In these times of political correctness I’m sure there are plenty of people who will be a negative Nancy over this review. I’m sorry. I’m not trying to offend anyone. If pandora wants to play ads that are in another language other than English, they should find out which of their customers can understand that language and play those ads for them.
It's the best!!
by AJSoftball on 2017/09/18 23:53
I have the Pandora Plus and its so great where you can skip your least liked songs but replay your favorites! Everyone I talk to about this app says "you don't have any control!" but you do. Why I say this is because it is just like a radio station. You have no idea what song is coming up next! But Pandora does pay attention to your thumbs ups and downs so if you do those then you can narrow down to your favorite songs while hearing some new ones. I also love the bedtime timer and alarm. Just lay back and relax while listen to your music while it automatically turns off depending on when you want it to. And then you wake up to the music you love when you want to. Also Pandora gives you notifications when an artist you like goes on tour or releases a new album.
Long time listener
by CookieCharleston on 2017/11/08 23:19
November- for a month or so now it’s been randomly crashing. Didn’t know what was going on but a few weeks ago I finally saw it happen while I was looking at my phone. Program shuts down and you see a star?symbol and then you have to re-unlock phone. Only app that does this The June bug sucked, stuck with it not launching for almost a week. Finally deleted it and redownloaded. Now I can listen to music on my way to work and home. Been listening for years. Love how you can read the bio on an artist. I have noticed lately that within a 30minute window that it plays the same song. Repeat much? I wish when listening to a station that it didn't just play my thumbs up songs. I like hearing new things and having to create a new station so I'm not listening to the same old same old yet again gets annoying.
4 stars
by SugarNSpice96 on 2017/11/10 20:12
Pandora would always crash and go offline quite often for reasons I don’t understand. When it crashes, it makes my phone turn off and it resets itself, then it comes back on and all is well again. This is the only app that does this to my phone, it’s kind of weird. Music is great, however, for a free app. I always recommend Pandora over other music apps. Commercials is a minimum of 2-3 quick clips, then back to music before you know it, not invasive and tolerable. You don’t need to buy the packages for Pandora to be commercial free, if commercials were to be your reason to spend real money on the Pandora app. I don’t recommend it, it’d be a waste. I love love love all of the genre options! There’s everything you can think of and more. Very much enjoyable. Personal favorites are all oldies music, southern rock, classics, and so on. Enjoy!
Advertisements
by Lo Giudice on 2017/11/12 21:32
Advertisements are too frequent. I should NOT have to pay to not have commercials. I can use other competing music apps that don’t have commercials like Pandora does. Also, just because I “like” a song when I’m listening to one genre of radio station, doesn’t mean I want to hear that song when I’m listening to a different genre of radio station. As humans, we are all in different moods at different times, and enjoy listening to different genres of music, depending on our mood. So if I am in the mood to be listening to a more upbeat and dance type genre, that doesn’t mean I want to hear my favorite slow love song from Secondhand Serenade. Please keep the same theme of music within the genre of radio station selected by the customer. If I want to listen to a random mix of songs I have periodically “liked” on Pandora, then I can listen to my thumbprint station. Otherwise, if I pick “Dance Party”, I want Dancing themed music, likewise, if I pick “Love Songs”, I want to hear slow romantic deep lyrical music.

I love listening to pandora but it could be better. I've been using it for a long time now. At times it seemed easy to use other times it did not. It would be nice to put a particular song on. Also I have different stations because i feel like listening to certain songs at certain times but you seem to merge my stations. I will be listening to a station and a song that I put on one station will show up on another with a thumbs up and I know I didn't do that for that station. Also I have been noticing that a song that I gave a thumbs up to is playing as a different version but with the same name and a thumbs up and I never even heard that version before and I never hear the original version that I gave the thumbs up to again.
Love! But a recent issue...
by Bo yo1 23 on 2017/09/28 05:20
I’ve used pandora for years and have enjoyed it for years but as of late I’ve been having a problem where my phone will slightly crash out and close the phone and pandora making me go back and open the app back up. The song that I was on no matter how far in I was resets and I have to listen to it again or skip. That’s the main issue I’m seeing but there is one more. Every once in a while the app will tell me a station isn’t available but it will let me open the station for two songs or so then kick me out again. Both of these problems together make the app almost unusable for me. But I will say these issues aren’t for everyone so I’m mainly doing this to try and get it fixed so take all I say with a hope that it doesn’t happen to you too. Thanks pandora I’ve enjoyed every year and every new favorite song!
HORRIBLE Update and Mix it up more, please!
by Kathleen2810 on 2017/10/21 13:44
PAID SUBSCRIBER HERE. Regarding the new update: I don't like it! I'm not able to add multiple songs from one artist. I've spent almost an hour entering songs to a playlist, song by song. I hit done, and for the second time, it says I have zero songs in the playlist! Really frustrating! An option to enter a particular band and select multiple songs for a playlist would be nice, instead of song by song. What happened to the thumbs up / down option? If that’s not available, how does Pandora learn what I like?? Horrible update. An option to add which years you’d like to be included in a playlist would help those of us trying to plan high school reunions or time themed parties. We are a dual genre household, so we created a station with a mix of rock and country. We added over 15 bands. The station plays nothing but country for about 45 minutes, then nothing but rock for 45 minutes. Is there any way to get this a bit more mixed??
The champ
by GatorsOwnDawgs on 2017/11/01 23:16
I spend a lot of time working out at a 24 hour gym, because the late nights are my only time to do so. Because of this, I need a reliable music app to really help keep my energy high for those late night workouts. Recently, I sought the advice of other people at my gym about which app they’d recommend. I got opinions from other late night regulars and even the staff. I got a wide variety of recommendations. The last guy I asked for advice was the overnight janitor who always seems to be working very hard, with headphones on. I got him to pause his work one night and asked him if he was listening to a steaming app. “Sho nuff!” He said excitedly. He went on: “I gotta have the best thing out there. And when I’m spending hours every night buffering these floors, trust me, I’ve become an expert. And nothing, I mean nothing, can stay buffering all night like Pandora.”
Need to add plus and premium features to all platforms
by Qjsnfieidfnei on 2017/09/27 03:18
I love pandora plus, I hate I can't skip unlimited songs on my Xbox, only on mobile devices. I hate that even on a mobile device I can't restart a song with out actually opening the app., i.e. I can't use the go back button on my head phones or the go back button on the sleep screen when I just click the sleep button. I have to actually unlock my phone, open the app, wait for it to open and load to the correct screen, then start the song over. Some times I have to press the restart button 100 times. I have had my pandora account for well over 5 years. Pandora plus for 6+ months. Hope they can fix these issues soon. Off line music mode is the only reason I pay for pandora plus still. Hope this helps someone.
Hateful marketing practices
by Jaqio on 2017/10/03 11:52
That damned splash screen that comes up every time you open the app which prompts you start a trial. Every. Single. Time. I hate beggars. Especially beggars who create apps that crash every single time I use it. And guess what happens when the apps boots up? They’re begging again, like the beggars they are. If someone wants to become a premium member, they will on their own. Or so I thought. It happens that in their begging splash screen, the start trial and not now buttons (which should have an “or ever” selection) are so close together that you just might tap incorrectly and by pure chance, you might just have your thumb on the fingerprint scanner and viola, you’re enrolled on a trial. Now, I did immediately cancel the trial, uninstalled the app, and after this close my account. But the best thing is that just for the heck of it, I will get a paid subscription service with another music provider. Just because I hate these beggars.
I like a smorgasbord of musical forms
by Onomatopoette on 2017/09/25 01:31
Hello All! Pandora is one of the very few resources for capricious musical access and choice across, within and without differing genres, I.e., one can dig to establish a spectrum of favorites or switch from Country to Pop to Symphonic to Opera with a click. And as at a gourmet smorgasbord, you can savor something as long as you like, until you'd like that other bite to excite other or additional taste-buds. My only criticism of Pandora is that their Complete Classical Works Channel lacks complete symphonies. If one appreciates classical music, it's wonderful to hear all 3 or 4 movements together (in context) rather than an isolated movement here and there. (I'm happy with what is offered; and I count my blessings.) Kind regards, J.H.Nonomura
Mediocre at best
by Hell On Wheels D2 on 2017/10/23 11:58
I’m not sure what algorithm they have worked out to choose music for you based on what you give a thumb up or down but it needs to be redone. I started a Queens of the Stone Age channel and it ended up being more Tool and Black Sabbath because I like a Puscifer song and a Ghost song. They hardly played Queens of the Stone Age from the beginning and it was a struggle to narrow some of their songs down out of all the crap that was being played. My Naked and Famous channel is pretty much just Halsey being played over and over. I liked the theme music for stranger things now I’m getting Halloween themed electronic music. Where is the option to move the song to another station, probably on the paid subscription. This is why I have XM and only listen to Pandora in the shower or while cooking, it’s just background noise.
Great with following suggestion
by Lurgeon on 2017/11/10 11:31
I greatly enjoy being able to listen to a plethora of songs and podcasts. My favorite station is the thumbprint station which plays every song I have ever liked. One suggestion would be to have another thumbprint-esque station which takes all the likes and dislikes and compiles a station of songs that does NOT include any of the liked songs. This way there is a station that plays songs that you haven’t ever listened to that also falls within the general categories you listen to. Add to that the ability to adjust “likes” in order to remove unwanted genres (changing the “likes” would not change the profile likes or dislikes but would only change that one station. ).
Terrible
by A6L7 on 2017/10/29 15:18
Latest update doesn’t seem to have music eq support and some kind of overall volume problem, which means in my car I have to turn up volume and if I change source I get blasted—also like others have said way too many ads that also I have absolutely no interest in and it seems to me the ads in spanish should probably be played for people that have spanish language stations, or at least something close to that—also there seems to be too much music being played that is so far off from my thumbed up tracks that it must be songs/artists that are being pushed by recording companies to promote them like when you listen to regular radio stations and they are all playing the same song—which I’m sure most people who use pandora are trying to avoid—at this point the only reason I’m using pandora is because it works in my car.
Buggy
by Lillybell.0 on 2017/09/21 23:22
I can only use Pandora for about 30 minutes before it refuses to play any stations. My DATA and wifi have strong connections, but when I select a station after it starts to kick me out of the first one selected it'll say "this station is not currently available. Please choose another station"... So that is what I do. I select a new station. Same message will appear. So I select another and another and they all say the same thing. SOMETIMES it will allow me to choose a new station after I run down my stations clicking and clicking and clicking. The problem that then occurs is it will play only one song and then it kicks me out again saying "this station is currently unavailable. Please choose another." Most of the time it's already up to date when this problem occurs. If not, I'll update and try again, but it doesn't fix itself. I've also tried swiping the app away, waiting, and then trying again. Still doesn't work. I've tried swiping it away and turning my phone off. Still doesn't work. This happens almost every time I try using the app. I have an iPhone 6s Plus and I know for a fact this is an app issue not a phone issue. I've had my phone switched out for a new replacement 2 times already and this Pandora app still does the same.
Repeat on iPhone app but not on iPad?
by SelinaG on 2017/10/04 00:14
I have been a pandora one member since the year it first came up (before it was even called pandora one) and a listener since pandora first started. So I don't understand why I can replay my songs on my iPhone but I can't on the iPad app. The app hasn't really changed all that much on the iPad, but it has on the phone. Also why doesn't it show recently played? Aka 3 days ago, or 2 weeks ago? I don't always want to resort to using my phone to listen to music at home It's been a while since you introduced replays. Going on almost 2 years coming this new year, and you still don't have a replay button on the iPad app! Getting frustrating real quick. That's the best part of PAYING for a subscription. I should be able to have the same benefits across a mobile app, desktop app, and web app!
Forced into Pandora Premium
by Peteycee90 on 2017/09/11 22:49
I used to like this app, but now it's completely spam. With the new update I'm suddenly subscribed to pandora premium. I get a notification that at he end of the month, I will start being charged full price. The thing is, I NEVER wanted premium! I'm looking all over the app for how to unsubscribe, finally I see where I have to go to subscriptions in the App Store. IT'S NOT LISTED IN MY SUBSCRIPTIONS! Guess I've got to wait until the end of the month and hope I remember to go in and cancel (A subscription I NEVER signed up for) before this greedy company steals money out of my wallet for an outdated service that they apparently weren't able to get people to pay for the honest way. UPDATE: These CROOKS don't even offer customer phone support. I'm sent to a FAQs page that offers ZERO help. Do yourself a favor and delete app before they steal your hard earned money out from under you.
Please in-break this app

I have had (and paid for) pandora plus for the past year or 2 and I used to love it. However it now has 2 main issues, 1st and foremost somewhere between 25-50% of the time it will lock up it does it while playing so that you can’t pause skip repeat or any other function and the only way to make it stop playing is to quit the app, it also does it when it’s been paused I will come back to it and it will show the song I was listening to and say it is playing but it will buffer indefinitely until I either quit the app or exit the station start a new one and then go back to the one I was trying to listen to. The other issue is lately the recommendation engine seems to have gone off the rails, and I can thumb down 10-15 similar songs in a row but it seems determined to play songs that are not at all fitting for a given station.
All good, but the billing...
by Roobearz on 2017/11/13 00:07
Been enjoying Pandora for a couple of years- signed up for “ad free” pronto- stations stream well- decent sound quality - abundant selection of artists/ associated stations- the only snafu I encountered was during attempts to update my billing info- despite updating in iTunes- which I was billed thru & every other place I could think of to “update” & despite numerous other entities having no problem billing me thru the same mechanism- after many attempts to get Pandora to: Just bill me & release me from those incessant ads!!! the final resolution was to- delete account; set up new account with updated billing info- trust me- if u encounter this issue- just delete your account- there are NO numbers info etc to actually contact Pandora for resolution. Thanks
What is wrong with offline mode???
by bluebassy on 2017/10/03 19:51
For weeks now I’ve been hoping that an update will fix the offline mode. Very often it just displays the stations it claims to have downloaded, but if I try to listen to an offline station then it just gives me a blank screen and says its buffering. Then when I go back a screen, the station has curiously disappeared from the offline stations list. If I go to settings and erase the downloaded stations and then turn it back on, it says that four stations download (much too quickly to really be true), but when I try to access them, the first thing happens again. This is not worth paying 5 bucks a month for when it only works probably maybe 3 or 4 times out of 10.
Garbage!
by Ihatethisappnow!!!!!!! on 2017/11/03 23:37
I have been using the Pandora APP for years and hardly ever have issues. Since the last update that “fixed bugs” I’ve had SO MANY ISSUES! I listen to music all day while at work and utilize this app for most of that. I have an iPhone, when when the headphones become unplugged the music usually automatically pauses... today my headphones came unplugged and the music played from my phone speaker without pausing at all, disrupting my coworkers... ok no biggy right? I can just pause it.. WRONG. Not only could I not pause it but I had to force close the app to get the music to end. That’s not all folks, I’ve had this pausing issue for almost a week now (update was about a week ago!) when i’m listening to a song and want to pause, I can’t! It just keeps going. There have also been instances where I can’t get the music to play!! I have the App open, press the play button. I can see that it registered but nothing happens! I thought maybe it was a WiFi or data issue but NOPE. It doesn’t matter where I am or what WiFi I’m connected to. Also I’ve been having a problem with the APP force closing ITSELF. I mean come on!!! I’m going to have to delete Pandora because of all the issues 😡.
Keeps Getting Worse with Each Update
by paulm10001 on 2017/11/12 14:09
Pandora keeps getting worse with each update. Now it reluctantly connects to HondaLink, but the app keeps playing on the iPhone after the car is off. Even worse, it cannot be stopped!!! Have to shutdown the phone before you can gain control of app. When it works, Pandora is great, but the app updates have made it a total waste. I have uninstalled it. ———————- The app connection to the Pandora function in my 2013 Accord disconnects shortly after the start of EACH song. Sometimes the connection will drop multiple times throughout a song. Although connecting to Honda's Pandora function through HondaLink has never been trouble free, the previous Pandora version didn't have anywhere near the number of problems as this version. PLEASE fix!! I've now resorted to listening to broadcast radio.
TOO MANY ADS!
by Johjaramillo27 on 2017/09/30 17:19
Love this app! Have had it forever. Since it came out. I’ve had it on my iphone 4, 5, and now 7 plus. Love everything about it, but the new updates have added too many ads! 1-3 songs will play then like 3 ads will play. Like really?? I know it’s free and you need ads to make some kind of money, but ease up on the ads a little bit. And no I’m not gonna pay for the ads to be removed. I remember when there wasn’t that many ads and unlimited skips. What happened to that pandora? Otherwise app is perfect. Thanks pandora for letting me have you for like 6 years. Haha listening right. Is actually. Haha ✌️🤘🏼

I love the app cause it plays all the music that I want to hear. Thanks for coming out with this source of music. Continue to play the jams that look for in songs. I commend what you’ll do with this app. You’ll have all types of music that that person is looking for. So as I continue to listen and enjoying what is being played , I will alway be a fan of your music. Thanks again for I can listen to at any moment of my life. I’m just so happy that I found this app cause it saves a lot of my time trying to find a station that plays just what I want to hear . Thank you again for everything you’ll offer to your fans.
Was a big fan of Pandora, now I am not.
by KosmicPotato on 2017/09/23 20:43
I've used Pandora as my main go-to music app for several years now. Today, I've unsubscribed and am deleting the app due to several issues. 1.) Searching specific songs does not bring it up(some songs), however Pandora has played these songs that I have tried to search. You just have to wait for it by adding the artist or album. 2.) Pandora for some reason has been pulling the most off-track songs. Spanish rap, Twilight Soundtrack, Lana Del Rey, and other artists I do not like nor have any artists near that genre. 3.) I've spent disliking more songs than liking on the majority of my stations. The lack of options to ensure accuracy for listeners is dissapointing. Just because I like a song doesn't mean I want to hear it 5x a day during my 8hr shift at work. Just because I like a song doesn't mean I like the artist. Overall, I went from a huge fan of Pandora to hating it. I used to recommend it but now I will recommend other apps like.... well anything really. Pandora has gone off the rails and in my opinion, is nothing more than a side project that has not seen much progression other than a system to increase profit.
Pandora needs to fix this
by Constance95 on 2017/11/07 15:00
Ok let’s start. I have to say since Pandora started I love it! But since a got an iPhone 7 Plus I started to have some bad problems, I were listening Pandora when suddenly closes it self in the middle of a song and restart the phone, at the beginning I thought was the phone but I reset its settings and nothing happened, I also updated IOS and nothing happened, I deleted the app and installed it again and nothing happens, Pandora still closes it self and restart the phone in the middle of a song! So now I got the iPhone X and still does the same sh%#*%. So my guess is that Pandora it’s not iPhone compatible which is too sad. Pandora has to fix that very soon! Also needs to be iPhone X compatible because the app doesn’t fill all the screen.
Love the app but issues are annoying
by Cflo1996 on 2017/11/09 22:18
Love pandora it’s great since it’s free. Kind of annoying that my today’s comedy radio station just like constantly repeats the same stuff. I like to hear the same songs but with comedy I can’t hear the same jokes all the time. Also, when I’m using pandora my phone literally restarts itself. It only happens with this app. It just shuts off the comes right back on then I have to reopen the apps, it’s usually just annoying but it’s very unsafe if I’m trying to listen to music and need directions while driving. I can’t just pick up the phone and restart my apps when I’m driving a car and it’s kind of hard to pull over randomly when you don’t know where you’re going.
Pandora Entertainment Quality
by no_name_man on 2017/10/20 00:58
This is the bet music app available. The layout and features are easy to navigate and understand. The selection is astounding. Features on Premium just add to the amazing quality and value this music service has. This is a great music app for any music lover. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a music service with great qualities for free. That’s another thing, some music apps don’t allow a lot of features to people who don’t pay for the Premium. Pandora offers tons of features that you would otherwise have to pay for on other apps.
Somethings changed
by whats up Pandora on 2017/11/12 01:19
Love Pandora and the seamless way it used to start playing when I turned my car on and stop when I turned car off. Since late Oct (2017), Pandora no longer starts automatically. I finally get it to play, but I can’t use the forward button in the car to skip a song, I now have to skip a song using my phone. When I turn car off, Pandora starts playing out of my iPhone and I can’t pause or shut it off. I have to turn my phone off or delete the app and reinstall. Really? Worked fine in car for 1 1/2 yrs and now Pandora is clearly messed up. Graphics no longer appear in car either. Getting to be more trouble than it’s worth. I’m a premium member.
Music at my convenience
by DoulosofChristus on 2017/09/22 21:01
Pandora allows me to listen to the music I love most and in accordance to my mood at the time and place of my choosing. I grow up with AM radio and later FM with 8 track tapes. Choices were limited by the radio station lineups and the budget. I could only buy tapes when I could afford them. Today a wide range of genre and quality of music is readily available. I love listening too soft music like Loreena McKinnet and the soft hymns when I study or read. It really enhances my concentration. Thank you Pandora. Thank you Lord Jesus my God and Savior for giving us the ability to develop this technology.
Convenient
by Glenny1010 on 2017/09/14 04:39
This app is really nice to have. You get to pick a station and personalize it by thumbing songs. Doing so will allow the system to read what kind of songs you like. This goes for every station. Pandora has a huge variety of stations as well, and they even add suggestions! It's convenient because the songs are great, it's like a playlist on shuffle and with new songs. HOWEVER the one thing is the adds. They pop out of nowhere and become really irritating, but there's nothing you can really do about it other than upgrading to the "premium" or pressing "skip add".

I purchased the premium version just to be able to use it with my Fitbit Ionic. The interface between the Ionic is less than OK. Hopefully this will be addressed in the next update for Ionic. I also would like to see a family plan available as is for Spotify and ITunes.

You know i really like pandora because it has a variety of music and good songs . But one thing that pisses me off is when im playing music and it makes my phone restart! I know this is only Pandora and not my phone because this is the ONLY DAMM APP THAT MAKES MY PHONE DO THAT! Even after they release an update, they still dont fix that problem! Honestly going to switch to Spotify, tired of it restarting my phone!!!🤬🤬
Broke with a recent update
by JDinNC on 2017/11/18 21:34
This used to be one of my most frequently used apps and one of my favorites. Unfortunately, a recent update blew it up completely. Cuts out every ten minutes or so, making you start over. Not too convenient if you’re mid-run. The bigger problem? The alarm stopped working. Been using this to wake up for a few years. All of a sudden it doesn’t work. Did all the typical troubleshooting steps. Nothing. Contacted support. Told them I did all the usual steps. Of course they told me to do them all again. After repeating all the steps told them it still didn’t work so the escalated my ticket to engineering. They got back to me the next day and said it was a “known issue”. Awesome. That was two weeks ago and I still haven’t seen an update and nothing’s changed. Still not working.

Let’s put it this way... As long as Pandora doesn’t follow suit and sell itself to the corporates like YouTube and the others have, there is hope for all of us who truly appreciate the outstanding music that people all over the world are creating. Fingers crossed...
What’s going on?
by Diamond Whitelaw on 2017/11/18 20:21
I don’t know what’s going on with Pandora but it won’t play my music when i open the app. It always says buffering and then i have to wait at least 10-15 mins for it to work or it doesn’t work at all and just closes out the app. I’ve updated it many times and the same thing still happens. I love Pandora but i would hate to uninstall the app and unsubscribe.

Help me out please
by Lilredsrt on 2017/11/18 16:15
I’m giving the app 5 start due to how long I’ve had and loved pandora. But, I’m having serious issue since I switched to the new premium version. Under updates 11 and higher when using the app on my iPhone 7plus, my phone gets REALLY hot and starts draining the battery very rapidly. In my iPhone settings under battery usage, this app is definitely the culprit. Any help would be great because I keep hoping every update that comes out it would be fixed but nothing yet. This occurs with WiFi and cellular use. Really hope you guys see this.

App majorly broken
by SaladFork on 2017/11/18 16:03
The pause button doesn't work most of the time, so your music is stuck playing until you force kill the app. This bug has been around way too long and is somehow still not resolved.

Issue with 2014 GMC Sierra IntelliLink
by zapit480v on 2017/11/18 15:50
After recent pandora update pandora no longer communicated with my GMC IntelliLink. Occasionally it will communicate but radio screen shows no pandora information of channels. Radio screen only displays “Acquiring Pandora” all the time. How do I fix this??

Constantly Requires Close and Restart for Alpine units
by Mbrogz3000 on 2017/11/18 14:25
Pandora used to work pretty well with my Alpine CDE W265BT head unit, but ever since the update from about 3 weeks ago, now the app never works on first try. I always plug in the lightning cable instead of Bluetooth for better audio quality - so it’s pretty unacceptable and disappointing that a modern iPhone 8 and head-unit advertised to work with Pandora do not properly work together. I now must enter the Pandora app, then close it out, then plug it into my head unit in order for music to play. It used to be seamless operation, but now it’s just terrible and distracting. Oh...and usually after a Pandora update, which seems to be weekly, it’s your responsibility to go into settings and set the audio quality back to High again since it usually defaults back low quality. The music stations also constantly play the same 20 or so songs— it’s like having that same mix cd playing the same music all the time. Despite the claims of creating a curated playlists for paying customers (like me)..its still the listener’s responsibility to constantly tell the app that a song had been played too much (which is a buried setting/feature). The thumbs up and down is flat out ignored in some cases. Between making non-paying customers listen to 60 seconds of ads for every one song played, and just terrible application performance...it’s no wonder the teenagers are flocking away from this service.

App crash/phone reboot
by Alex61780 on 2017/11/18 14:02
1. App crashes sporadically causing iPhone to reboot. Relaunch pandora and song starts over. 2. At first launch, song will not play. Play button unresponsive. Kill app and relaunch which corrects issue.

by upwitdat on 2017/11/18 13:28
Pandora does pull a lot of good songs. It’s a good music app that enable to discover songs that I like but haven’t heard before. The downside is the large amount of songs that I have already heard on the radio and YouTube. Another drawback is the high amount of songs that are from years ago. I would like more music that haven’t aired on the radio and no older than five years.

Saved songs are deleted and cannot be added back
by N1ghtw1ng29 on 2017/11/18 07:34
I have pandora premium. And when add songs, sometimes the app forgets that I added those songs. When I go to the specific song to add it, it’ll say “Song added to My Music” but the plus sign stays there and it does not add the song
Glitchy
by Awesomejellypancake on 2017/11/18 06:39
Randomly shuts off. Freezes and then kicks me out my phone. I try to open the app and it stays frozen till I click around on different stations. It used to work perfectly. It’s horrible now. Hope it gets fixed soon.

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.
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.
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! 😁
"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.
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🎧🎶
It Used to Work
by WhoReleasedThisCr*p on 2017/11/02 02:23
Pandora used to be my go-to music app. I was introduced to artists I never knew existed because they were similar to what I already enjoyed. When I got a new car with SYNC3, Pandora was rock solid. I could move from house to car and back without missing a beat. But several months ago, Pandora started having problems. When I get in the car, especially when using CarPlay, there’s no better than a 10% chance that I’ll be able to open Pandora, select a playlist and actually hear music. Most of the time it will give me a list of my playlists, but selecting a playlist just snaps back and does nothing no matter how many times I select it. Sometimes the app on the phone tells me “Poor network connection”, or its stuck asking me to start a free trial, or there’s a “Skip to Pandora” button. But you know what’s not there? Music! My home wi-fi is unchanged. There are no new cell towers. I have at least three bars. There is no reason why I can’t do today what I did for months without any problems, and that’s listen to music. So I have deleted the app and reinstalled twice. If I have to delete again, there won’t be another installation. And that’s sad because an app that once brought me so much good music and introduced me to so many artists, now brings only daily frustration.
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.
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.

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
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 👌🏼
Pandora used to be great
by Ne3na on 2017/11/02 07:35
Now it’s not. There are so. Many. Ads. It’s like every 2 minutes there’s this annoying 30 second to one minute ad playing and its usually about paying to stop the ads and get pandora prime or whatever it’s called. Thumbprint radio would have also been an awesome idea if it wasn’t for the fact that pandora is more than likely lying about the amount of songs it has. How else can you explain the fact that I’m stuck listening to the same songs that are pretty much on an endless loop and shuffled? I swear the other day it played the same exact song twice in a row, but I was all out of skips and had to listen to it again. That’s another thing! Why do we have to pay to skip songs? Why do we have to pay for music to keep playing for more than two hours? I came to pandora because I didn’t want to spend money! I wouldn’t want to waste my money on pandora anyway, especially if it just puts songs on an hour loop. I even have a lullaby radio and I’m pretty sure I’ve heard every song that it has to offer at least twice now, if not more. At this point, the only reason I have pandora is because of that lullaby radio.
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.
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.
Positive New Life Thanks to Pandora
by Tricia Tobias on 2017/09/24 21:05
Pandora was introduced to me as I was in one of the worst turmoils of my life. God will never give you more than you can handle they say..... But it was only because of Pandora that I survived!! Simply having the ability to allow the perfect song at the perfect time come through the tiny iPhone speaker was priceless. Forced to quit my successful job of 13 years to stay at home to take care of our 3 daughters..... After years of mental, emotional, financial and then physical abuse I was relieved when I came home and all my husbands clothes and belongings were gone...... it was a difficult divorce but Because of Pandora I was able to overcome the Obstacles, the Crushing barriers that would otherwise make someone give up or loose hope and become cold towards life and existence..... Thank You Pandora and all the musicians and audio industry for saving me and my 3 young daughters Lives Forever!! Thank you!!💖Tricia Tobias

by Ali_in_KC on 2017/10/19 20:18
I’ve been with pandora for years and have had no complaints until recently. It seems that for every three songs you listen to they will then have you listen to two commercials. That was annoying but I had invested my thumbs up on enough songs that I had a great mix of music to listen to throughout the day with not many repeats so it seemed like starting over would be a pain. This week I’m considering deleting it and finding an alternative. I don’t want to start over but they’ve started playing a commercial that is entirely in Spanish and I hear it like every thirty minutes. I can’t understand a word of it other than the company whose ad it is. In these times of political correctness I’m sure there are plenty of people who will be a negative Nancy over this review. I’m sorry. I’m not trying to offend anyone. If pandora wants to play ads that are in another language other than English, they should find out which of their customers can understand that language and play those ads for them.
It's the best!!
by AJSoftball on 2017/09/18 23:53
I have the Pandora Plus and its so great where you can skip your least liked songs but replay your favorites! Everyone I talk to about this app says "you don't have any control!" but you do. Why I say this is because it is just like a radio station. You have no idea what song is coming up next! But Pandora does pay attention to your thumbs ups and downs so if you do those then you can narrow down to your favorite songs while hearing some new ones. I also love the bedtime timer and alarm. Just lay back and relax while listen to your music while it automatically turns off depending on when you want it to. And then you wake up to the music you love when you want to. Also Pandora gives you notifications when an artist you like goes on tour or releases a new album.
Long time listener
by CookieCharleston on 2017/11/08 23:19
November- for a month or so now it’s been randomly crashing. Didn’t know what was going on but a few weeks ago I finally saw it happen while I was looking at my phone. Program shuts down and you see a star?symbol and then you have to re-unlock phone. Only app that does this The June bug sucked, stuck with it not launching for almost a week. Finally deleted it and redownloaded. Now I can listen to music on my way to work and home. Been listening for years. Love how you can read the bio on an artist. I have noticed lately that within a 30minute window that it plays the same song. Repeat much? I wish when listening to a station that it didn't just play my thumbs up songs. I like hearing new things and having to create a new station so I'm not listening to the same old same old yet again gets annoying.

Pandora would always crash and go offline quite often for reasons I don’t understand. When it crashes, it makes my phone turn off and it resets itself, then it comes back on and all is well again. This is the only app that does this to my phone, it’s kind of weird. Music is great, however, for a free app. I always recommend Pandora over other music apps. Commercials is a minimum of 2-3 quick clips, then back to music before you know it, not invasive and tolerable. You don’t need to buy the packages for Pandora to be commercial free, if commercials were to be your reason to spend real money on the Pandora app. I don’t recommend it, it’d be a waste. I love love love all of the genre options! There’s everything you can think of and more. Very much enjoyable. Personal favorites are all oldies music, southern rock, classics, and so on. Enjoy!

Advertisements are too frequent. I should NOT have to pay to not have commercials. I can use other competing music apps that don’t have commercials like Pandora does. Also, just because I “like” a song when I’m listening to one genre of radio station, doesn’t mean I want to hear that song when I’m listening to a different genre of radio station. As humans, we are all in different moods at different times, and enjoy listening to different genres of music, depending on our mood. So if I am in the mood to be listening to a more upbeat and dance type genre, that doesn’t mean I want to hear my favorite slow love song from Secondhand Serenade. Please keep the same theme of music within the genre of radio station selected by the customer. If I want to listen to a random mix of songs I have periodically “liked” on Pandora, then I can listen to my thumbprint station. Otherwise, if I pick “Dance Party”, I want Dancing themed music, likewise, if I pick “Love Songs”, I want to hear slow romantic deep lyrical music.

I love listening to pandora but it could be better. I've been using it for a long time now. At times it seemed easy to use other times it did not. It would be nice to put a particular song on. Also I have different stations because i feel like listening to certain songs at certain times but you seem to merge my stations. I will be listening to a station and a song that I put on one station will show up on another with a thumbs up and I know I didn't do that for that station. Also I have been noticing that a song that I gave a thumbs up to is playing as a different version but with the same name and a thumbs up and I never even heard that version before and I never hear the original version that I gave the thumbs up to again.
Love! But a recent issue...
by Bo yo1 23 on 2017/09/28 05:20
I’ve used pandora for years and have enjoyed it for years but as of late I’ve been having a problem where my phone will slightly crash out and close the phone and pandora making me go back and open the app back up. The song that I was on no matter how far in I was resets and I have to listen to it again or skip. That’s the main issue I’m seeing but there is one more. Every once in a while the app will tell me a station isn’t available but it will let me open the station for two songs or so then kick me out again. Both of these problems together make the app almost unusable for me. But I will say these issues aren’t for everyone so I’m mainly doing this to try and get it fixed so take all I say with a hope that it doesn’t happen to you too. Thanks pandora I’ve enjoyed every year and every new favorite song!
HORRIBLE Update and Mix it up more, please!
by Kathleen2810 on 2017/10/21 13:44
PAID SUBSCRIBER HERE. Regarding the new update: I don't like it! I'm not able to add multiple songs from one artist. I've spent almost an hour entering songs to a playlist, song by song. I hit done, and for the second time, it says I have zero songs in the playlist! Really frustrating! An option to enter a particular band and select multiple songs for a playlist would be nice, instead of song by song. What happened to the thumbs up / down option? If that’s not available, how does Pandora learn what I like?? Horrible update. An option to add which years you’d like to be included in a playlist would help those of us trying to plan high school reunions or time themed parties. We are a dual genre household, so we created a station with a mix of rock and country. We added over 15 bands. The station plays nothing but country for about 45 minutes, then nothing but rock for 45 minutes. Is there any way to get this a bit more mixed??
The champ
by GatorsOwnDawgs on 2017/11/01 23:16
I spend a lot of time working out at a 24 hour gym, because the late nights are my only time to do so. Because of this, I need a reliable music app to really help keep my energy high for those late night workouts. Recently, I sought the advice of other people at my gym about which app they’d recommend. I got opinions from other late night regulars and even the staff. I got a wide variety of recommendations. The last guy I asked for advice was the overnight janitor who always seems to be working very hard, with headphones on. I got him to pause his work one night and asked him if he was listening to a steaming app. “Sho nuff!” He said excitedly. He went on: “I gotta have the best thing out there. And when I’m spending hours every night buffering these floors, trust me, I’ve become an expert. And nothing, I mean nothing, can stay buffering all night like Pandora.”
Need to add plus and premium features to all platforms
by Qjsnfieidfnei on 2017/09/27 03:18
I love pandora plus, I hate I can't skip unlimited songs on my Xbox, only on mobile devices. I hate that even on a mobile device I can't restart a song with out actually opening the app., i.e. I can't use the go back button on my head phones or the go back button on the sleep screen when I just click the sleep button. I have to actually unlock my phone, open the app, wait for it to open and load to the correct screen, then start the song over. Some times I have to press the restart button 100 times. I have had my pandora account for well over 5 years. Pandora plus for 6+ months. Hope they can fix these issues soon. Off line music mode is the only reason I pay for pandora plus still. Hope this helps someone.
Hateful marketing practices
by Jaqio on 2017/10/03 11:52
That damned splash screen that comes up every time you open the app which prompts you start a trial. Every. Single. Time. I hate beggars. Especially beggars who create apps that crash every single time I use it. And guess what happens when the apps boots up? They’re begging again, like the beggars they are. If someone wants to become a premium member, they will on their own. Or so I thought. It happens that in their begging splash screen, the start trial and not now buttons (which should have an “or ever” selection) are so close together that you just might tap incorrectly and by pure chance, you might just have your thumb on the fingerprint scanner and viola, you’re enrolled on a trial. Now, I did immediately cancel the trial, uninstalled the app, and after this close my account. But the best thing is that just for the heck of it, I will get a paid subscription service with another music provider. Just because I hate these beggars.
I like a smorgasbord of musical forms
by Onomatopoette on 2017/09/25 01:31
Hello All! Pandora is one of the very few resources for capricious musical access and choice across, within and without differing genres, I.e., one can dig to establish a spectrum of favorites or switch from Country to Pop to Symphonic to Opera with a click. And as at a gourmet smorgasbord, you can savor something as long as you like, until you'd like that other bite to excite other or additional taste-buds. My only criticism of Pandora is that their Complete Classical Works Channel lacks complete symphonies. If one appreciates classical music, it's wonderful to hear all 3 or 4 movements together (in context) rather than an isolated movement here and there. (I'm happy with what is offered; and I count my blessings.) Kind regards, J.H.Nonomura
Mediocre at best
by Hell On Wheels D2 on 2017/10/23 11:58
I’m not sure what algorithm they have worked out to choose music for you based on what you give a thumb up or down but it needs to be redone. I started a Queens of the Stone Age channel and it ended up being more Tool and Black Sabbath because I like a Puscifer song and a Ghost song. They hardly played Queens of the Stone Age from the beginning and it was a struggle to narrow some of their songs down out of all the crap that was being played. My Naked and Famous channel is pretty much just Halsey being played over and over. I liked the theme music for stranger things now I’m getting Halloween themed electronic music. Where is the option to move the song to another station, probably on the paid subscription. This is why I have XM and only listen to Pandora in the shower or while cooking, it’s just background noise.
Great with following suggestion
by Lurgeon on 2017/11/10 11:31
I greatly enjoy being able to listen to a plethora of songs and podcasts. My favorite station is the thumbprint station which plays every song I have ever liked. One suggestion would be to have another thumbprint-esque station which takes all the likes and dislikes and compiles a station of songs that does NOT include any of the liked songs. This way there is a station that plays songs that you haven’t ever listened to that also falls within the general categories you listen to. Add to that the ability to adjust “likes” in order to remove unwanted genres (changing the “likes” would not change the profile likes or dislikes but would only change that one station. ).
Terrible
by A6L7 on 2017/10/29 15:18
Latest update doesn’t seem to have music eq support and some kind of overall volume problem, which means in my car I have to turn up volume and if I change source I get blasted—also like others have said way too many ads that also I have absolutely no interest in and it seems to me the ads in spanish should probably be played for people that have spanish language stations, or at least something close to that—also there seems to be too much music being played that is so far off from my thumbed up tracks that it must be songs/artists that are being pushed by recording companies to promote them like when you listen to regular radio stations and they are all playing the same song—which I’m sure most people who use pandora are trying to avoid—at this point the only reason I’m using pandora is because it works in my car.
Buggy
by Lillybell.0 on 2017/09/21 23:22
I can only use Pandora for about 30 minutes before it refuses to play any stations. My DATA and wifi have strong connections, but when I select a station after it starts to kick me out of the first one selected it'll say "this station is not currently available. Please choose another station"... So that is what I do. I select a new station. Same message will appear. So I select another and another and they all say the same thing. SOMETIMES it will allow me to choose a new station after I run down my stations clicking and clicking and clicking. The problem that then occurs is it will play only one song and then it kicks me out again saying "this station is currently unavailable. Please choose another." Most of the time it's already up to date when this problem occurs. If not, I'll update and try again, but it doesn't fix itself. I've also tried swiping the app away, waiting, and then trying again. Still doesn't work. I've tried swiping it away and turning my phone off. Still doesn't work. This happens almost every time I try using the app. I have an iPhone 6s Plus and I know for a fact this is an app issue not a phone issue. I've had my phone switched out for a new replacement 2 times already and this Pandora app still does the same.
Repeat on iPhone app but not on iPad?
by SelinaG on 2017/10/04 00:14
I have been a pandora one member since the year it first came up (before it was even called pandora one) and a listener since pandora first started. So I don't understand why I can replay my songs on my iPhone but I can't on the iPad app. The app hasn't really changed all that much on the iPad, but it has on the phone. Also why doesn't it show recently played? Aka 3 days ago, or 2 weeks ago? I don't always want to resort to using my phone to listen to music at home It's been a while since you introduced replays. Going on almost 2 years coming this new year, and you still don't have a replay button on the iPad app! Getting frustrating real quick. That's the best part of PAYING for a subscription. I should be able to have the same benefits across a mobile app, desktop app, and web app!
Forced into Pandora Premium
by Peteycee90 on 2017/09/11 22:49
I used to like this app, but now it's completely spam. With the new update I'm suddenly subscribed to pandora premium. I get a notification that at he end of the month, I will start being charged full price. The thing is, I NEVER wanted premium! I'm looking all over the app for how to unsubscribe, finally I see where I have to go to subscriptions in the App Store. IT'S NOT LISTED IN MY SUBSCRIPTIONS! Guess I've got to wait until the end of the month and hope I remember to go in and cancel (A subscription I NEVER signed up for) before this greedy company steals money out of my wallet for an outdated service that they apparently weren't able to get people to pay for the honest way. UPDATE: These CROOKS don't even offer customer phone support. I'm sent to a FAQs page that offers ZERO help. Do yourself a favor and delete app before they steal your hard earned money out from under you.
Please in-break this app
by fishrdumb on 2017/11/16 00:55
I have had (and paid for) pandora plus for the past year or 2 and I used to love it. However it now has 2 main issues, 1st and foremost somewhere between 25-50% of the time it will lock up it does it while playing so that you can’t pause skip repeat or any other function and the only way to make it stop playing is to quit the app, it also does it when it’s been paused I will come back to it and it will show the song I was listening to and say it is playing but it will buffer indefinitely until I either quit the app or exit the station start a new one and then go back to the one I was trying to listen to. The other issue is lately the recommendation engine seems to have gone off the rails, and I can thumb down 10-15 similar songs in a row but it seems determined to play songs that are not at all fitting for a given station.
All good, but the billing...
by Roobearz on 2017/11/13 00:07
Been enjoying Pandora for a couple of years- signed up for “ad free” pronto- stations stream well- decent sound quality - abundant selection of artists/ associated stations- the only snafu I encountered was during attempts to update my billing info- despite updating in iTunes- which I was billed thru & every other place I could think of to “update” & despite numerous other entities having no problem billing me thru the same mechanism- after many attempts to get Pandora to: Just bill me & release me from those incessant ads!!! the final resolution was to- delete account; set up new account with updated billing info- trust me- if u encounter this issue- just delete your account- there are NO numbers info etc to actually contact Pandora for resolution. Thanks
What is wrong with offline mode???
by bluebassy on 2017/10/03 19:51
For weeks now I’ve been hoping that an update will fix the offline mode. Very often it just displays the stations it claims to have downloaded, but if I try to listen to an offline station then it just gives me a blank screen and says its buffering. Then when I go back a screen, the station has curiously disappeared from the offline stations list. If I go to settings and erase the downloaded stations and then turn it back on, it says that four stations download (much too quickly to really be true), but when I try to access them, the first thing happens again. This is not worth paying 5 bucks a month for when it only works probably maybe 3 or 4 times out of 10.
Garbage!
by Ihatethisappnow!!!!!!! on 2017/11/03 23:37
I have been using the Pandora APP for years and hardly ever have issues. Since the last update that “fixed bugs” I’ve had SO MANY ISSUES! I listen to music all day while at work and utilize this app for most of that. I have an iPhone, when when the headphones become unplugged the music usually automatically pauses... today my headphones came unplugged and the music played from my phone speaker without pausing at all, disrupting my coworkers... ok no biggy right? I can just pause it.. WRONG. Not only could I not pause it but I had to force close the app to get the music to end. That’s not all folks, I’ve had this pausing issue for almost a week now (update was about a week ago!) when i’m listening to a song and want to pause, I can’t! It just keeps going. There have also been instances where I can’t get the music to play!! I have the App open, press the play button. I can see that it registered but nothing happens! I thought maybe it was a WiFi or data issue but NOPE. It doesn’t matter where I am or what WiFi I’m connected to. Also I’ve been having a problem with the APP force closing ITSELF. I mean come on!!! I’m going to have to delete Pandora because of all the issues 😡.
Keeps Getting Worse with Each Update
by paulm10001 on 2017/11/12 14:09
Pandora keeps getting worse with each update. Now it reluctantly connects to HondaLink, but the app keeps playing on the iPhone after the car is off. Even worse, it cannot be stopped!!! Have to shutdown the phone before you can gain control of app. When it works, Pandora is great, but the app updates have made it a total waste. I have uninstalled it. ———————- The app connection to the Pandora function in my 2013 Accord disconnects shortly after the start of EACH song. Sometimes the connection will drop multiple times throughout a song. Although connecting to Honda's Pandora function through HondaLink has never been trouble free, the previous Pandora version didn't have anywhere near the number of problems as this version. PLEASE fix!! I've now resorted to listening to broadcast radio.
TOO MANY ADS!
by Johjaramillo27 on 2017/09/30 17:19
Love this app! Have had it forever. Since it came out. I’ve had it on my iphone 4, 5, and now 7 plus. Love everything about it, but the new updates have added too many ads! 1-3 songs will play then like 3 ads will play. Like really?? I know it’s free and you need ads to make some kind of money, but ease up on the ads a little bit. And no I’m not gonna pay for the ads to be removed. I remember when there wasn’t that many ads and unlimited skips. What happened to that pandora? Otherwise app is perfect. Thanks pandora for letting me have you for like 6 years. Haha listening right. Is actually. Haha ✌️🤘🏼

I love the app cause it plays all the music that I want to hear. Thanks for coming out with this source of music. Continue to play the jams that look for in songs. I commend what you’ll do with this app. You’ll have all types of music that that person is looking for. So as I continue to listen and enjoying what is being played , I will alway be a fan of your music. Thanks again for I can listen to at any moment of my life. I’m just so happy that I found this app cause it saves a lot of my time trying to find a station that plays just what I want to hear . Thank you again for everything you’ll offer to your fans.
Was a big fan of Pandora, now I am not.
by KosmicPotato on 2017/09/23 20:43
I've used Pandora as my main go-to music app for several years now. Today, I've unsubscribed and am deleting the app due to several issues. 1.) Searching specific songs does not bring it up(some songs), however Pandora has played these songs that I have tried to search. You just have to wait for it by adding the artist or album. 2.) Pandora for some reason has been pulling the most off-track songs. Spanish rap, Twilight Soundtrack, Lana Del Rey, and other artists I do not like nor have any artists near that genre. 3.) I've spent disliking more songs than liking on the majority of my stations. The lack of options to ensure accuracy for listeners is dissapointing. Just because I like a song doesn't mean I want to hear it 5x a day during my 8hr shift at work. Just because I like a song doesn't mean I like the artist. Overall, I went from a huge fan of Pandora to hating it. I used to recommend it but now I will recommend other apps like.... well anything really. Pandora has gone off the rails and in my opinion, is nothing more than a side project that has not seen much progression other than a system to increase profit.
Pandora needs to fix this
by Constance95 on 2017/11/07 15:00
Ok let’s start. I have to say since Pandora started I love it! But since a got an iPhone 7 Plus I started to have some bad problems, I were listening Pandora when suddenly closes it self in the middle of a song and restart the phone, at the beginning I thought was the phone but I reset its settings and nothing happened, I also updated IOS and nothing happened, I deleted the app and installed it again and nothing happens, Pandora still closes it self and restart the phone in the middle of a song! So now I got the iPhone X and still does the same sh%#*%. So my guess is that Pandora it’s not iPhone compatible which is too sad. Pandora has to fix that very soon! Also needs to be iPhone X compatible because the app doesn’t fill all the screen.
Love the app but issues are annoying
by Cflo1996 on 2017/11/09 22:18
Love pandora it’s great since it’s free. Kind of annoying that my today’s comedy radio station just like constantly repeats the same stuff. I like to hear the same songs but with comedy I can’t hear the same jokes all the time. Also, when I’m using pandora my phone literally restarts itself. It only happens with this app. It just shuts off the comes right back on then I have to reopen the apps, it’s usually just annoying but it’s very unsafe if I’m trying to listen to music and need directions while driving. I can’t just pick up the phone and restart my apps when I’m driving a car and it’s kind of hard to pull over randomly when you don’t know where you’re going.
Pandora Entertainment Quality
by no_name_man on 2017/10/20 00:58
This is the bet music app available. The layout and features are easy to navigate and understand. The selection is astounding. Features on Premium just add to the amazing quality and value this music service has. This is a great music app for any music lover. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a music service with great qualities for free. That’s another thing, some music apps don’t allow a lot of features to people who don’t pay for the Premium. Pandora offers tons of features that you would otherwise have to pay for on other apps.
Somethings changed
by whats up Pandora on 2017/11/12 01:19
Love Pandora and the seamless way it used to start playing when I turned my car on and stop when I turned car off. Since late Oct (2017), Pandora no longer starts automatically. I finally get it to play, but I can’t use the forward button in the car to skip a song, I now have to skip a song using my phone. When I turn car off, Pandora starts playing out of my iPhone and I can’t pause or shut it off. I have to turn my phone off or delete the app and reinstall. Really? Worked fine in car for 1 1/2 yrs and now Pandora is clearly messed up. Graphics no longer appear in car either. Getting to be more trouble than it’s worth. I’m a premium member.
Music at my convenience
by DoulosofChristus on 2017/09/22 21:01
Pandora allows me to listen to the music I love most and in accordance to my mood at the time and place of my choosing. I grow up with AM radio and later FM with 8 track tapes. Choices were limited by the radio station lineups and the budget. I could only buy tapes when I could afford them. Today a wide range of genre and quality of music is readily available. I love listening too soft music like Loreena McKinnet and the soft hymns when I study or read. It really enhances my concentration. Thank you Pandora. Thank you Lord Jesus my God and Savior for giving us the ability to develop this technology.
Convenient
by Glenny1010 on 2017/09/14 04:39
This app is really nice to have. You get to pick a station and personalize it by thumbing songs. Doing so will allow the system to read what kind of songs you like. This goes for every station. Pandora has a huge variety of stations as well, and they even add suggestions! It's convenient because the songs are great, it's like a playlist on shuffle and with new songs. HOWEVER the one thing is the adds. They pop out of nowhere and become really irritating, but there's nothing you can really do about it other than upgrading to the "premium" or pressing "skip add".
