Great Service, Flawed App
by - - • • on 2018/07/23 00:51
Short version: If you want to avoid falling into the rut of listening to only what you know, Pandora is easily the best internet radio service. That said, the app has a great UI hamstrung by FREQUENTLY becoming (quasi) non responsive. The service is good enough that I’m willing to deal with it, but it’s still frustrating. Long Version: First, the actual service. It has a large library, and it’s algorithm does a great job of not only throwing new things at you, but also in keeping a good audio ‘flow.’ That said, for best results, specialize your stations for two or three complimentary genres each (for example, trip-hop and lo-fi play well together in my experience). Next, the app. The UI is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and would be perfect... except for some reason it keeps becoming non responsive. Want to add variety? Sorry, we’ll let you use the search function but we’ll not let you add anything. Want to bring up whats playing so you can thumbs up a song? Nah, the station stays minimized. You get the idea. It really is frustrating because, if it weren’t for this ONE problem, I wouldn’t think twice about rating Pandora five stars.

Ads
by tori1418 on 2018/07/22 21:42
I honestly think that the ads about the new movies (currently the darkest minds) how they play it over and over again is making the movie get annoying af I wanted to see it but I listen to Pandora all the time that I constantly see the ads about the movie and it gets annoying I know I know I should just get premium but I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking this 😂😂😂
Their new system
by Jacknalls on 2018/07/22 21:38
Ever since they started with their offline listening the music keeps cutting mid song. At first I thought it was my data. However, I checked if the internet was working during these times and well it was. I guess this is the way they are bullying people into buying their membership. If we all stand together pandora will fix this issue. I’ll probably switch to another app like this one but one that doesn’t cut on purpose so that I have to pay a monthly membership.

I used to say pandora is the best app. But I just spent an hour to try and get it to stop skipping and glitching I'm fed up I can't even record a snap without it skipping. I have an iPhone X it's not my phone and I'm connected to WiFi it's not my service this is ridiculous

New Ad set up is horrible...
by Colleen0893 on 2018/07/22 18:24
The way they have set up the app with ads now makes the app pretty much unusable. You can rarely skip, it always shows an ad instead of an album cover and you have to manually click the album cover to show it. Ads after nearly every song. It’s genuinely ridiculous. For an app that was so solid for so long, why ruin it? Greed?! I can’t even use the app anymore! Spotify here i come.
It’s great

I love how you can change your songs without it having to listen to the same one over and over again if you don’t want to listen then don’t download this app. I. Love this app so much that I listen to it when i am doing my chores everyday . I love that u can look at the stations that you want to listen to and not what they pick for u. It is the best app I have ever got in my life.

Hour of unlimited listening?
by Full gamerman on 2018/07/22 14:48
I use pandora almost everyday but recently in the last month or so every time you watch an ad for a free hour, every skip comes with the normal you are out of skips watch another ad. I love the free hour but an ad every skip when you watch the free ad gets kind of annoying. I’m not sure if it’s a glitch but please fix.
Please fix

Uninterrupted listening
by Dylxn_N9ne=sc on 2018/07/22 07:24
I had watched an ad for uninterrupted listening and it wasn’t even 10 minutes threw and it had maxed me out on skips. I was very frustrated with this experience
Awesome
by mauntain goat on 2018/07/22 05:40
One of things that I love from Pandora is that they have only certain kind of music on each station And not all together. Thank you for taking the time to selecting it so well, I really enjoy it without declining songs.
Shortcut doesn’t work.
by Dancingwishy on 2018/07/22 04:50
Whenever I use the shortcut to pick a station (pressing harder on the app to open a quick menu) it never plays. Every time it tells me there are connection issues. I’ve waited several minutes and nothing happens. I have to force close, wait a minute or two, and then open it and change the station if it’s not the one I want. What’s the point of the short cuts if they ever freaking work!
Great music

by KayG96 on 2018/07/22 00:53
It’s alright when it works. I’m canceling my pandora plus subscription before it renews again cause it’s not worth the $5 every month if my offline stations won’t play when I’m offline. What’s the point?? The unlimited skips are nice but they’re not worth $5, soooo I’m done. I tried to wait it out and see if it’d get better and it didn’t, it almost seems to get worse. And when the offline stations DO work, they’ll only play like 3-4 songs if I’m lucky. Better to just suffer through the free version.

I love pandora. So great to listen great songs randomly picked by pandora..... I found some new songs and artist, so that is a big plus. Now with premium I can search and create my playlists, I like how the album art color changes with every track, slick design, love it! Thanks Pandora for making and keeping a great app.
Constant buffering

I don’t pay for pandora so I won’t be able to use it. What’s the point of paying to be able to look up a song if I can’t look it up while it’s connected to Bluetooth. I don’t need pandora to baby sit me while I’m driving or riding as a passenger.

by SlickJohnny on 2018/07/21 13:28
It needs some work. Need less ads for non premium/ plus members. One ad after another, ad after every song, ad interrupting a song. It’s like they’re trying to force you to buy their other services.

Wi-Fi Casting not functional for iOS devices
by jcyoung80 on 2018/07/21 12:55
Wi-Fi casting for iOS devices has not been functional for over 3 months. I used to love this service but it no longer supports WiFi casting and technical support is worthless. I opened a trouble report with Pandora and they did respond and told me that they were aware of the problem. I later replied to them and requested an update. I was told that he did not know when the issue would be fixed. He told me I could reach out to him any time for an update but he received so many tickets that he could not guarantee he could respond. If this cannot be resolved soon I will cancel my service soon. I have several different IOS devices and casting does not work on any of them. I can cast with I Heart Radio every time but Pandora does not work. I have a VIZIO 360 speaker that I bought and used for a year or so and it was amazing but a Pandora update has rendered it useless.

Stole my Money!!!
by S. Mald on 2018/07/21 09:42
I have loved Pandora for a long time, but on a perfectly normal day, it signed me up for Pandora Plus and used $4.99 off my Apple ID without letting me know! Okay, not that big of a deal, right? Then, after a month, it signed me up for Pandora PREMIUM, and this spent $12.99, under MY Apple ID, without even letting me know once again!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, in total, Pandora used a grand total of $17.98, under my name! Now, yes I know that I may have accidentally clicked something that purchased this, but before you make any purchase, you are required to enter a password, which would be impossible to type in accidentally two times. Honestly I don’t know why this is happening, but I just want to get this out there so other people don’t get scammed like I was.

by katiee6 on 2018/07/21 05:45
any chance I get I try and use the “one hour of uninterrupted listening” but after I skip a few songs it’s says I have to listen to an ad to get more which it never used to do during the one hour. I shouldn’t have to listen to an ad to skip during the uninterrupted hour. is it just my phone or something with the new update??

by wingzinco on 2018/03/19 00:34
I love Pandora for many reasons, especially since they acquired Rdio and have now built that functionality into their product. I have tried and re-tried all of the major music services and still find myself searching for the right one to spend my money on. I’d say, hands down, that the combo of Pandora’s and Rdio’s algorithms is the best choice for balancing discovery and the songs you want to hear. There have been quirks with the full service offering and the app over the last couple years, but the biggest issue I still run into is how the app handles the transition of WiFi to Cell and vice versa. This is the only music service app that I’ve tried that fails to handle that transition well. If I move from my house to car, I get stoppage that can’t recover and it either skips to the next song in the queue or the app reboots itself, forcing me to take action to continue playing. Even if I’m not playing music and I just switch locations and pull up the app, it has a difficult time pulling up the song that I left off on last. Loading of the next song and keeping up with album covers seems to be an issue too at times, even with a strong connection. This is a bummer. Interface, music management, sound quality, and behavioral algorithm are all mostly great, and having browser access for premium are all pros... it’s just some of the little things such as this bug and a few past ones that keep it from being my go-to.
Glitch Fixed, Back To Perfection 👌🏻
by 🎤Mischivia🎶 on 2017/12/27 16:51
As I mentioned in a previous comment, this amazing app was being taken over by an evil glitch. Now that the glitch is fixed, everything is back to normal, i’m back to enjoying all my favorite songs, and discovering new ones. The app is still just as amazing without premium, which I never bothered to try, the app is amazing as it is. And now all that is back. Although there is one thing that I always forgot to mention in my two previous reviews, advertising. The advertisements are not a severe problem, just merely annoying more than anything, you just finished an amazing tune, and then an ad pops up trying to get you to go to Six Flags. I know you cannot remove these, they are necessary, I’m mostly writing this part as a warning to anybody who had the patience to read up to here 😉. Although in the end, we all hate advertisements. 😁 Although I found a glitch in the new update, I am using Pandora on an iPad mini and when I turn off my device while using Pandora and turn it back on the lock-screen is stuck on “Burn by Ellie Goulding” it happened when I was listening to the song and had to leave my device for a moment, and now every time I use Pandora, this glitch happens. I don’t know if it is my device, or your app, thank you for reading my review.
Awesome app! I love it! ♥️🎶👍🏻
by The Creator 🎨🖌 on 2018/03/07 02:58
I love this app so much! Pandora has allowed me to listen to all my favorite songs and find new ones to! It's also pretty cool because when I'm in the middle of house work the songs I want to listen just instantly come on! It's magic! (But of course, it's probably because I'm optimistic and positive about almost everything) I also love that new update and how my pandora app has this neat and cool design for it's logo. Five stars for the creativity! But there are some things that I do kinda mind.. the ads for one. Because when I'm listening to my piano music when a go to bed I hear ads come on and then my insomnia kicks in full force. I'm highly sensitive to changes of sounds. That's why I usually always stick with piano and rag time music. (And no I'm not a old) this also means that when I go to listen to some songs that are hard tuned like remixes and Nightcore I usually hear lots of profanity involved, I'm not a huge fan of inappropriate words. Could there be some sort of setting to fix that problem? It's because I personally have P.T.S.D and profanity is one of my triggers next to gore and violence. That's really all I have to say. But overall, it's my most treasured app! (Next to iMessages and camera) I'm an artist at heart so this app truly helps inspirational moods! Keep up the good work!
The one thing removed is something I miss
by chris1111z on 2018/04/28 11:19
When I chose to add an artist specific station it’s almost always to listen to just that artist (maybe with narrow exceptions, Juliana Hatfield is an example (I also Blake Babies, Some Girls and Juliana Hatfield 3 on there, everting else that came up is thumbed down). I MISS the feature that allowed me to choose less variety. I pay $5.34/month to not get ads, but I’m still thumbing down so much that I’m forced to go to the next station or listen to a song I thumbed down, sometimes relatively soon. Why was this great feature removed? It saved me a lot of thumbing down. The most frustrating thing is it’s actively opposing me keeping a station for an artist. It assumes when I thumb down everything but that one artist that I don’t like the station. That’s not true. On Rush radio I’m thumbing down everything that isn’t Rush or Getty Lee’s solo stuff. On Duran Duran radio, its everything but Arcadia and Duran Duran (never did like power station). I hate getting that ‘Error message’ offering to help me browse stations to my liking. I’ve got 90+/- stations on my app, I just want them to be more narrowly focused (except for the few that by definition broad, “1980’s alternative” (for example). I’d love to get a developer’s response here how to tweak it to not having to thumb down so much. On Tove Lo I have an extreme example (over 1,000 thumb downs and thumb up every Tove Lo song they’ve played so far).
What am I paying for??!
by SuziQ86 on 2017/12/01 14:20
This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I am actually being charged for a service that is unusable. I pay monthly for an ad-free Pandora experience. Despite the minor hiccups, I’ve been relatively happy with this app for the past few years. However, with the most recent update, it no longer functions correctly. I have even taken a screencast to show that I’m not crazy or making it up. First, I have to open the app, which automatically freezes. So then I have to swipe out and open again. Then, after a song starts playing, it will suddenly stop like 30 seconds in. Don’t even try connecting to Bluetooth in your car or you’ll be one distracted driver trying to get it play just one song. If I also try to simultaneously use another app, as I have been doing for many years prior, it will now automatically stop playing. What is with these developers who don’t test out the updates before releasing them to the public and losing many LOYAL customers in return?? I am very frustrated and need this issue to be addressed immediately (for a road trip I’m taking) or I will find another radio music app worth my time and money! Ps- My phone and app have all the most recent updates and I have had no other issues with any other app. Previous Review: Love it! I use Pandora every single day. My only gripe is that I wish we could like/dislike songs on the lock screen without having to unlock the phone each time. Other than that, it's a wonderful app that I'm glad to have :-)
A few improvements would make a big difference!
by Mgurumi on 2018/03/03 03:29
I love pandora. It’s about 90% of how I listen to music. I have the Premium subscription too. So I make good use of it. The biggest complaint I have about the premium version, though, is that if I want to look at my stations, I can click the “stations” filter but it won’t give me any sort options. I believe it defaults to recently listened. But I have a LOT of stations. And sometimes I want to find a particular one. It becomes really hard to quickly find something when I haven’t listened to it in a while. If I could sort my stations alphabetically, it would vastly improve the experience. Alphabetical sort is an option on the subscription one level down. Why should I have to downgrade to get what should be a standard feature? It’s backwards. The other thing I wish was an option was the ability to view my subscription details through the app. I do most everything on my phone or tablet through apps. If I want to look at my subscription info, I have to go to the website (the app only shows what kind of account I have). But the mobile (phone web browser version) website just redirects me to the app. So the only way I can see or change or update subscription info is to find a computer to use, which is inconvenient.
Good Content : Fair Loading Reliability
by GSL-SE Guy on 2018/04/11 15:32
Pandora is smart with assuming what music relates to my chosen bands. They are a little narrow in their offerings from any individual band. For example, if choose a “station” called Supertramp I heat Supertramp’s greatest hits over and over again, which is fine, but if I choose a station based on a specific band, it is safe to assume I like more than just their most popular songs. I should hear their entire catalog. If I choose a genre-based station it is okay to play just hits from various bands in that genre, but if I pick a specific band, Pandora should be smart enough to realize I want everything from that band, not just their hit songs. I also have a frequent connectivity issue. I live in a rural area where it is not uncommon to lose cellular coverage and subsequently my Pandora feed. No problem, I understand this is unavoidable. The problem is that when I regain cellular connectivity Pandora often will not reboot. About half the time I have to turn my phone completely off to get Pandora to restart. This is not safe when I am driving so I either have to pull over or live without Pandora until I get to my destination. I have an iPhone 6s with Apple CarPlay in my vehicle. I love Pandora except for these two issues. Thanks, Mike Kingsley
Love Pandora
by DJaneA on 2018/03/09 09:04
I listen to Ryan Farish radio on Pandora Plus everyday. So relaxing. It has become an addiction. I connect it to my car audio via Bluetooth on the iPhone app and play it on Roku TV while reading, surfing the net and relaxing. I listen to Pandora more than I watch TV. It has a great selection of new age/trance instrumental artists like Ryan Farish (of course), 7 and 5, and Deosil. It throws in some classical, soft jazz, and EDM for variety. Even my bunny likes it! I tried Premium but went back down to Plus. I don’t skip much because it plays most of the music I like that has a thumbs up. I also just like to listen to the music randomly. Most of the songs and artists I like most, could not be replayed or added to playlist on Premium anyways due to licensing. Which is ridiculous considering you’re paying the extra money that should cover this. Another downside is the replay/back button won’t work in the car. I can skip forward using the car’s track button on the steering wheel, but back to replay the song won’t work, especially if the song cannot be replayed because of licensing. I also found the Premium app too confusing. Other than that, love this music. Could listen to it forever.
Crap for free and doesn’t get better with premium
by JordynKLow on 2017/11/05 07:48
Constantly goes offline when I have plenty of service. Now it won’t play the songs on my playlists. I select a song and it chooses a random song from the same playlist. I have premium yet your licensing restrictions require that a lot of the songs I like require to be listened to on the radio part of the app. What’s the point of paying for premium? I’d rather deal with ads. I listen to this app while I’m driving and now with our distracted driving laws in my state this app makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to get it working if it starts wigging out on me. The offline playlists literally play crap music and only play like four songs. When you go back into service it chooses a playlist for you instead of resuming what you had going in the first place. This app is a total waste of money for premium and a total waste of time and effort for commuters without premium. Like if I want to listen to a song over, sure I will listen to an ad but don’t prompt me 7 times about premium before letting me rewind like seriously how am I supposed to listen and drive when the app is asking you 20 freaking questions. Stop making things more of an effort than they need to be. The other day I selected a song and it started randomly playing other songs on that playlist but then immediately choosing another and another and so on. My songs were on a literal shuffle. Get your life together pandora.
Dont take down my review because you dont like what i said
by alexknowsall on 2018/03/20 13:47
Updated march 20th 2018. I think it's pitiful you chose to remove my comment discussing many of the real problems your app is facing rather than deal with them. This app has new glitches since update, songs now stop playing randomly. Pandora is now a bad subscription version of itunes with a free mode. It does not bring you to new music it just replays thumbed up tracks, now i do remember old pandora was not allowed to do this due to copy right laws...so either you found a loop hold or no one was paying attention but now i will be notifiying some people. You need to seriously reevaluate your standards, your algorithm is trash, stop playing slow break up songs in my hard rock lifting station, stop playing commercials about heart problems during my lifting playlist, do not give me the option to get more skips then play an unreasonably long add with an inaudible speaker who cant do more than muble squeek despite a sound booth and head set if thats the whole add they aut to be audible, have a standard, additionally only one additional skip is an inappropriate reward for the add length, very seriously i am telling you to to wake up, this record of events is now in the public domain so take me down ill repost and spread everywhere because at this point you have disrespected me with your foolish attempts to cover up your behavior rather than deal with it responsibly.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Shaka! 2 da Pan do Ra!!!
by IsamuraiZ2sly on 2018/04/22 14:25
Ive moved over, or supposedly up 2 the great I Phone status. Mostly because of an offer and my daughter needed one. But i admit its much better than the ones i had prior. But as expected they cater or offer apps namely music apps of their benefit. I sort of stayed away from the P dora not wanting to feel like a traitor. But somehow your app popped up, and being fm Hawaii. I just gotta have some island/ jawaiian style MsiK! Where the opposite of Orange mSk aPp was clueless and kept showin me empty searches. Dora like the cartoon girl, always lookin for answers n solutions does. Has the MsiK i need like mY psychological/mental fix. U even had all the muSik i had right where me left them. So where Apple has its benefits it offers its customers, which is actually nice. And i see your app has become a little lesss freer. Oh wells. Capitalism. Makes the true potential of man a sick cripple. Its also the pace car that got us here. Kinda drive the donkey gorward, funny that word came out Al Goreward. Or more honestly. Downward. But thank you from a Hawaiian muSik addict. Haha, cuzz i luvs me some local vibes. And it just started playin my Fav Song just about, of all my Life. Safe and Sound - Rebellution.

Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Awesome songs/tunes, good variety and cool artists!
by Julesrules14 on 2018/07/02 17:20
I love pandora. Been a subscriber and a patron and customer/user for the longest time. Used it since I have heard of it coming out. I got tired of YouTube’s, every other song commercials. So I came to use Pandora an oldie but goodie. Always the best do and will survive. I love the fact that I don’t have to skip commercials and that there are not that many. The music and songs are always playing. I don’t have to wait for a song, no buffering, skipping songs is easy. But why would I want to. There is awesome sound quality, the stations/mixes are excellent. The choices of songs from the playlists are remarkable. I approve of all of them. There isn’t one that I don’t like. I am constantly hitting the 👍. Adding bookmarks, creating stations, sharing, and much more. What else can I say. There isn’t much that I couldn’t not say except no videos. So I have nothing but good things to say "terrific app, incredible and hot hits, lovable songs, bands from all eras and genres. Enjoy the app, I know I am! You will too, I just know it once you try it, just listen, turn up the tunes, start to groove. Kick it! Julia
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
"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.
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
Really like Pandora despite its issues
by watsontcbc on 2018/01/06 18:21
I really like Pandora. They fixed the latest crashing issue. I occasionally use and try other apps. Some are good for specific uses, like just finding a specific song or hearing what friends like. But Pandora consistently curated music very very well and I keep coming back, now defaulting to it for general listening in the car and at home. Jazz, electronica, fusion, trance, house, and artist or even song-based stations - you name it: I get an excellent mix suited to my tastes, with new tunes and artists I hadn’t yet heard. Yes, their ad behavior is irritating in the free version. But if you grew up listening to AM radio as I did, this is not really a problem. And if you can’t stand it, ante-up for the premium version. It is totally worth it if you hate the ads that much what with all the extra features you get. Keep it up Pandora. Just don’t make your ad function any more annoying than it already is (like popping up more ads when I just want to see the album cover, making me click two or three times to see it!). If you make it less annoying I’ll give you a full five stars!
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
I love Pandora, but I have some concerns
by forkliftcat on 2018/07/06 01:09
I love Pandora, listen everyday of every week. I bought Pandora Plus because I use it so much, and wanted unlimited skips and replays and no adds. However after 15 - 20 skips I can’t because “licensing restrictions” and I don’t know if the unlimited replays are worth it because in the last 2 months I’ve seen 20 songs I like moved to single song albums and unable to replay. I don’t know why Pandora is doing this, but it’s getting annoying. Paying for unlimited skips and replays but can’t replay any songs I like anymore. Please fix this or do something about it. Also I would like to see more variety of songs. I like a song from one artist and never get any other song from that artist, so I go and look at that artist in Pandora and that artist has plenty more songs; so I don’t know why it’s not playing any of them. Also I like artists that Pandora doesn’t have very many songs for. An example is TheFatRat. Pandora only has about half of his songs, and I have some favorites that I would like to see added like Time Lapse and Windfall. The same goes for various other artists.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
I’m with HER
by Gardengirl18 on 2017/12/05 12:48
I always loved this service and before I was a paying customer, I was a regular subscriber since 2007 and I did love it but there are too many problems with it now! It is constantly buffering, it says it’s playing, the meter shows the music is on and it’s in play status but the problem is there’s nothing coming out! There is no communication between what we hear and what the machine says that we’re supposed to hear and I’m saying everything that the previous person reviewed is exactly how I feel and if this does not fix itself soon, I’m Leaving! I had to now delete the app as per Pandora’s help instructions and my stations and everything else has to be redone! Sometimes I put on gospel music from my coworker that I play with her once a week and once it comes on for some unknown reason I cannot get gospel off and it keeps going into my playlist although the station is the selected and I have close the app hit save and hit shuffle and I cannot get rid of it. Maybe that’s Interventional. Previous Review: I'm surprised to see how the music is chosen for variety. I pay for it, but the optional features are very good.i love Todays Comedy Radio station however, I seem to hear the same bits. So I hit skip a lot. Maybe you can add some variety.
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!
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!

I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
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
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
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 👌🏼
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.
Needs updating
by Beccajean89 on 2018/06/24 13:53
I love pandora. I usually have it playing most the day every day. There are just a couple things I wish they would change- 1) when you thumbs down a song, I wish they would give you the option of thumbs downing the song OR thumbs downing the artist. Because in all honesty, I'm not thrilled with having Taylor Swift and Pink pop up and play songs on my CCR and Purple Lace stations. 2) can they give us the option of deleting the variety added on stations? I added a variety song to my station because I really liked the song, but then it completely changed the chemistry of the station and now I'm getting some seriously weird and unrelated stuff on there. And deleting the station and making a new one to restart doesn't work. Other than that, there isn't much that I don't like about pandora. They've got some great songs that are great for the stations I've created. And I love that they give me the option of earning some replays and skips. I would give them 5 stars if they could change those two options from above.
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
Needs an update for modern devices
by Josh modern tech geek on 2018/01/05 23:11
Pandora needs an update for a stand alone app compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular. If I lose Bluetooth connection with my actual phone pandora will not work because it uses the app on my phone although I have the add on installed my watch. The point of having cellular on the Apple Watch is if you are out of range on Bluetooth with your phone you can still text, call, email etc from the watch. Would be nice to enjoy my pandora premium out on a walk with the dog without my phone and using my AirPods or out for a jog. iTunes does support a stand alone app for the watch so you can listen to music through AirPods without connection to your phone. Another benefit I would get here would be the usage of battery using pandora on my watch vs phone. I get home from a long day of work and my watch is at 80% and my phone is at 20% and that is off and on wireless charging all day. One of my coworkers opted for the iTunes unlimited subscription and I’m getting jealous for sure...
Needs Improvement
by Wally Nelson on 2018/01/26 16:12
I’ve used Pandora loyally for 6 years now but I’m considering switching to a new platform. 7 months ago I signed up for Pandora Premium and have had little problems with Pandora as an app ever since. It crashes more often then before and my downloaded playlists don’t work have the time. If given the option to download a playlist I made I want to be able to listen to it offline but every time I click play it says that it’s unavailable. I find it hard to believe that of the 50 or so songs that I have in my playlist are all unavailable for playback because of licensing issues. Also on that same subject the playlist does work once, and that is the immediately after I download it but a couple hours later I get squat. The Help section of the app is not nearly as useful as I would like. I would like the option to send the developers a message letting them know something is wrong but no option. I love Pandora and it’s a great service but Premium isn’t worth the money.
Great app, just could use some tweaks
by John (in) Denver on 2018/01/10 20:55
Pandora is one of my favorite apps. I listen to it almost daily. Nearly daily, however, it suffers little issues that frustrate me. Examples: The thumbs up/down feature is cool, but crude and its true functionality is in clear. Consider: A song comes on that I like, but it’s a live version. I hate listening to live versions of songs. So is that a thumbs up or down? Lately, if I have been listening for a while and my phone has gone into sleep mode (not sure that is the proper term), I’ll open the phone again and the pause/play button will be locked. The phone isn’t locked. Other controls work, but I can’t stop/start the music without starting a different station. Very frustrating. One more: I started a new station by picking a band (Alabama). Sure enough, first song was a live version of a mediocre song. I skipped the song. The next few songs that came up were non-Alabama songs I liked - songs I would like on an Alabama station. Thumbs up. No more Alabama songs. I quickly stopped thumbing up, then started skipping. Finally, I thumbed down some songs I actually liked. After an hour of music, Pandora had only played three crappy Alabama songs or crappy versions of good Alabama songs. I quit the station and deleted it. Next day I tried again and had a much better, but not great experience with a new Alabama station. Wonderful, magical, but sometimes very confusing.
Love Pandora, but screen lag causes almost accidental purchases
by roshanda123 on 2018/06/22 14:44
iPhone 6. I love pandora, the only complaint I have is that I do not pay for Pandora Premium and sometimes I feel as if I’m almost tricked into Pandora charging me for premium. At random times the screen will dim and ask if I want to pay for premium or a ‘No Thanks’ option will appear under the ‘Free Trial’ option. Almost every time I go to click ‘No thanks’ the screen reloads (not sure what to call it) and the ‘Free Trial’ button moves to where ‘No Thanks’ was. This is happening as I’m clicking ‘No Thanks’ and Pandora registers that I want to start premium and my iPhone pulls up the purchase confirmation screen. If I had auto-pay set up i would have never known that pandora reloaded the screen and began charging me for premium until I see the charge on my account. Other than that small inconvenience, great app & music variety.
Keeping my station ALL “thumbs up”
by Mawgy! on 2018/05/23 03:32
In general, I am very happy with Pandora. I am subscribed to Pandora Plus, or whatever the no commercial option is called. There is no possible way for me to know the algorhythm, or whatever Pandora uses to choose selections for an individual station. I have been actively using the “thumb system” on a particular station for probably a couple of months now and still choices slip in that are nothing like all the “thumbs up” choices I make. This may be a lot to ask of a “free” station, but I’d even be willing to pay to have my station more streamlined without “thumbs down interruptions.” I want to set a sleep timer and not wake up the next morning hearing all manner of music I’d prefer not to hear and have to go through thumbing down again to maybe achieve what the station was before all those other choices crept in. Pandora offers a unique service, and I’d like to see this option offered for a fee.

I love Pandora and have used some of the same stations for years on my computer and phone. I appreciate that the music adjusts to your responses to tracks they suggest. More often than not, when I thumbs down a track, Pandora suggests a song that follows the same style I am looking for that the song I disliked. It is so slick that you can create inspiration for a station and Pandora finds the songs similar to them for you! The only bummer is that with the last update, the option to add variety was taken away-or I haven’t found it, yet. I have found some new artists I would like to add to one of my longest running playlists, and may just need to be patient. The updates do tend to be more user-friendly than the last, but they are vastly different. So prepare to be on your toes. :) Overall, this music app has been dependable for me for nearly a decade!
Great with a suggestion
by Serial Skipper on 2017/11/30 04:44
Pandora works great for me at the moment. I’ve yet to upgrade to premium but so far I can tolerate the ads (its not that much). I can easily find the songs I like so overall it’s a great app. The suggestion I have though isn’t really required such as recommended. I’d like for the rating of songs to be less broad than “like,” “dislike,” or just no rating at all. I know that I for one have songs that I like and songs that I love as well as songs that I dislike and songs I hate. The suggestion is that instead of just thumbs up or thumbs down there would be an advanced option. This would optimize my listening experience because being able to choose how much “thumbs-uping” or “thumbs-downing” a song will effect the rest of the music on my radio. This would, in turn, allow me to have more control over my music. Thank you for hearing me out!
Upgrade is not there yet
by Jazzman1963 on 2018/04/23 03:33
I have been a loyal Pandora subscriber since the day it came out. Have always had the commercial free service and have loved it. I use Pandora everyday and full disclosure, I am a share holder in the stock. However, with the new Premium account there are a few things missing or almost impossible to find. I liked my stations in alphabetical order. What happened there? I also want to delete a station or now delete a song on a play list. You can’t delete anything anymore. It’s frustrating when you have used something for so long and have REALLY ENJOYED the ease of use and now have an entirely new learning curve. By the way, make sure you are off your home wi if and far enough away from your home before you go into Cell service mode. You will have to pull over and work things out. It can’t be done on the fly anymore. Hopefully all of these small issues will be fixed soon.

Great Service, Flawed App
by - - • • on 2018/07/23 00:51
Short version: If you want to avoid falling into the rut of listening to only what you know, Pandora is easily the best internet radio service. That said, the app has a great UI hamstrung by FREQUENTLY becoming (quasi) non responsive. The service is good enough that I’m willing to deal with it, but it’s still frustrating. Long Version: First, the actual service. It has a large library, and it’s algorithm does a great job of not only throwing new things at you, but also in keeping a good audio ‘flow.’ That said, for best results, specialize your stations for two or three complimentary genres each (for example, trip-hop and lo-fi play well together in my experience). Next, the app. The UI is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and would be perfect... except for some reason it keeps becoming non responsive. Want to add variety? Sorry, we’ll let you use the search function but we’ll not let you add anything. Want to bring up whats playing so you can thumbs up a song? Nah, the station stays minimized. You get the idea. It really is frustrating because, if it weren’t for this ONE problem, I wouldn’t think twice about rating Pandora five stars.

Ads
by tori1418 on 2018/07/22 21:42
I honestly think that the ads about the new movies (currently the darkest minds) how they play it over and over again is making the movie get annoying af I wanted to see it but I listen to Pandora all the time that I constantly see the ads about the movie and it gets annoying I know I know I should just get premium but I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking this 😂😂😂
Their new system
by Jacknalls on 2018/07/22 21:38
Ever since they started with their offline listening the music keeps cutting mid song. At first I thought it was my data. However, I checked if the internet was working during these times and well it was. I guess this is the way they are bullying people into buying their membership. If we all stand together pandora will fix this issue. I’ll probably switch to another app like this one but one that doesn’t cut on purpose so that I have to pay a monthly membership.

New Ad set up is horrible...
by Colleen0893 on 2018/07/22 18:24
The way they have set up the app with ads now makes the app pretty much unusable. You can rarely skip, it always shows an ad instead of an album cover and you have to manually click the album cover to show it. Ads after nearly every song. It’s genuinely ridiculous. For an app that was so solid for so long, why ruin it? Greed?! I can’t even use the app anymore! Spotify here i come.

I love how you can change your songs without it having to listen to the same one over and over again if you don’t want to listen then don’t download this app. I. Love this app so much that I listen to it when i am doing my chores everyday . I love that u can look at the stations that you want to listen to and not what they pick for u. It is the best app I have ever got in my life.

Hour of unlimited listening?
by Full gamerman on 2018/07/22 14:48
I use pandora almost everyday but recently in the last month or so every time you watch an ad for a free hour, every skip comes with the normal you are out of skips watch another ad. I love the free hour but an ad every skip when you watch the free ad gets kind of annoying. I’m not sure if it’s a glitch but please fix.
Please fix

Uninterrupted listening
by Dylxn_N9ne=sc on 2018/07/22 07:24
I had watched an ad for uninterrupted listening and it wasn’t even 10 minutes threw and it had maxed me out on skips. I was very frustrated with this experience
Awesome
by mauntain goat on 2018/07/22 05:40
One of things that I love from Pandora is that they have only certain kind of music on each station And not all together. Thank you for taking the time to selecting it so well, I really enjoy it without declining songs.
Shortcut doesn’t work.
by Dancingwishy on 2018/07/22 04:50
Whenever I use the shortcut to pick a station (pressing harder on the app to open a quick menu) it never plays. Every time it tells me there are connection issues. I’ve waited several minutes and nothing happens. I have to force close, wait a minute or two, and then open it and change the station if it’s not the one I want. What’s the point of the short cuts if they ever freaking work!
Great music

by KayG96 on 2018/07/22 00:53
It’s alright when it works. I’m canceling my pandora plus subscription before it renews again cause it’s not worth the $5 every month if my offline stations won’t play when I’m offline. What’s the point?? The unlimited skips are nice but they’re not worth $5, soooo I’m done. I tried to wait it out and see if it’d get better and it didn’t, it almost seems to get worse. And when the offline stations DO work, they’ll only play like 3-4 songs if I’m lucky. Better to just suffer through the free version.

I love pandora. So great to listen great songs randomly picked by pandora..... I found some new songs and artist, so that is a big plus.

I don’t pay for pandora so I won’t be able to use it. What’s the point of paying to be able to look up a song if I can’t look it up while it’s connected to Bluetooth. I don’t need pandora to baby sit me while I’m driving or riding as a passenger.

by SlickJohnny on 2018/07/21 13:28
It needs some work. Need less ads for non premium/ plus members. One ad after another, ad after every song, ad interrupting a song. It’s like they’re trying to force you to buy their other services.

Wi-Fi Casting not functional for iOS devices
by jcyoung80 on 2018/07/21 12:55
Wi-Fi casting for iOS devices has not been functional for over 3 months. I used to love this service but it no longer supports WiFi casting and technical support is worthless. I opened a trouble report with Pandora and they did respond and told me that they were aware of the problem. I later replied to them and requested an update. I was told that he did not know when the issue would be fixed. He told me I could reach out to him any time for an update but he received so many tickets that he could not guarantee he could respond. If this cannot be resolved soon I will cancel my service soon. I have several different IOS devices and casting does not work on any of them. I can cast with I Heart Radio every time but Pandora does not work. I have a VIZIO 360 speaker that I bought and used for a year or so and it was amazing but a Pandora update has rendered it useless.

Stole my Money!!!
by S. Mald on 2018/07/21 09:42
I have loved Pandora for a long time, but on a perfectly normal day, it signed me up for Pandora Plus and used $4.99 off my Apple ID without letting me know! Okay, not that big of a deal, right? Then, after a month, it signed me up for Pandora PREMIUM, and this spent $12.99, under MY Apple ID, without even letting me know once again!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, in total, Pandora used a grand total of $17.98, under my name! Now, yes I know that I may have accidentally clicked something that purchased this, but before you make any purchase, you are required to enter a password, which would be impossible to type in accidentally two times. Honestly I don’t know why this is happening, but I just want to get this out there so other people don’t get scammed like I was.

any chance I get I try and use the “one hour of uninterrupted listening” but after I skip a few songs it’s says I have to listen to an ad to get more which it never used to do during the one hour. I shouldn’t have to listen to an ad to skip during the uninterrupted hour. is it just my phone or something with the new update??

by wingzinco on 2018/03/19 00:34
I love Pandora for many reasons, especially since they acquired Rdio and have now built that functionality into their product. I have tried and re-tried all of the major music services and still find myself searching for the right one to spend my money on. I’d say, hands down, that the combo of Pandora’s and Rdio’s algorithms is the best choice for balancing discovery and the songs you want to hear. There have been quirks with the full service offering and the app over the last couple years, but the biggest issue I still run into is how the app handles the transition of WiFi to Cell and vice versa. This is the only music service app that I’ve tried that fails to handle that transition well. If I move from my house to car, I get stoppage that can’t recover and it either skips to the next song in the queue or the app reboots itself, forcing me to take action to continue playing. Even if I’m not playing music and I just switch locations and pull up the app, it has a difficult time pulling up the song that I left off on last. Loading of the next song and keeping up with album covers seems to be an issue too at times, even with a strong connection. This is a bummer. Interface, music management, sound quality, and behavioral algorithm are all mostly great, and having browser access for premium are all pros... it’s just some of the little things such as this bug and a few past ones that keep it from being my go-to.
Glitch Fixed, Back To Perfection 👌🏻
by 🎤Mischivia🎶 on 2017/12/27 16:51
As I mentioned in a previous comment, this amazing app was being taken over by an evil glitch. Now that the glitch is fixed, everything is back to normal, i’m back to enjoying all my favorite songs, and discovering new ones. The app is still just as amazing without premium, which I never bothered to try, the app is amazing as it is. And now all that is back. Although there is one thing that I always forgot to mention in my two previous reviews, advertising. The advertisements are not a severe problem, just merely annoying more than anything, you just finished an amazing tune, and then an ad pops up trying to get you to go to Six Flags. I know you cannot remove these, they are necessary, I’m mostly writing this part as a warning to anybody who had the patience to read up to here 😉. Although in the end, we all hate advertisements. 😁 Although I found a glitch in the new update, I am using Pandora on an iPad mini and when I turn off my device while using Pandora and turn it back on the lock-screen is stuck on “Burn by Ellie Goulding” it happened when I was listening to the song and had to leave my device for a moment, and now every time I use Pandora, this glitch happens. I don’t know if it is my device, or your app, thank you for reading my review.
Awesome app! I love it! ♥️🎶👍🏻
by The Creator 🎨🖌 on 2018/03/07 02:58
I love this app so much! Pandora has allowed me to listen to all my favorite songs and find new ones to! It's also pretty cool because when I'm in the middle of house work the songs I want to listen just instantly come on! It's magic! (But of course, it's probably because I'm optimistic and positive about almost everything) I also love that new update and how my pandora app has this neat and cool design for it's logo. Five stars for the creativity! But there are some things that I do kinda mind.. the ads for one. Because when I'm listening to my piano music when a go to bed I hear ads come on and then my insomnia kicks in full force. I'm highly sensitive to changes of sounds. That's why I usually always stick with piano and rag time music. (And no I'm not a old) this also means that when I go to listen to some songs that are hard tuned like remixes and Nightcore I usually hear lots of profanity involved, I'm not a huge fan of inappropriate words. Could there be some sort of setting to fix that problem? It's because I personally have P.T.S.D and profanity is one of my triggers next to gore and violence. That's really all I have to say. But overall, it's my most treasured app! (Next to iMessages and camera) I'm an artist at heart so this app truly helps inspirational moods! Keep up the good work!
The one thing removed is something I miss
by chris1111z on 2018/04/28 11:19
When I chose to add an artist specific station it’s almost always to listen to just that artist (maybe with narrow exceptions, Juliana Hatfield is an example (I also Blake Babies, Some Girls and Juliana Hatfield 3 on there, everting else that came up is thumbed down). I MISS the feature that allowed me to choose less variety. I pay $5.34/month to not get ads, but I’m still thumbing down so much that I’m forced to go to the next station or listen to a song I thumbed down, sometimes relatively soon. Why was this great feature removed? It saved me a lot of thumbing down. The most frustrating thing is it’s actively opposing me keeping a station for an artist. It assumes when I thumb down everything but that one artist that I don’t like the station. That’s not true. On Rush radio I’m thumbing down everything that isn’t Rush or Getty Lee’s solo stuff. On Duran Duran radio, its everything but Arcadia and Duran Duran (never did like power station). I hate getting that ‘Error message’ offering to help me browse stations to my liking. I’ve got 90+/- stations on my app, I just want them to be more narrowly focused (except for the few that by definition broad, “1980’s alternative” (for example). I’d love to get a developer’s response here how to tweak it to not having to thumb down so much. On Tove Lo I have an extreme example (over 1,000 thumb downs and thumb up every Tove Lo song they’ve played so far).
What am I paying for??!
by SuziQ86 on 2017/12/01 14:20
This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I am actually being charged for a service that is unusable. I pay monthly for an ad-free Pandora experience. Despite the minor hiccups, I’ve been relatively happy with this app for the past few years. However, with the most recent update, it no longer functions correctly. I have even taken a screencast to show that I’m not crazy or making it up. First, I have to open the app, which automatically freezes. So then I have to swipe out and open again. Then, after a song starts playing, it will suddenly stop like 30 seconds in. Don’t even try connecting to Bluetooth in your car or you’ll be one distracted driver trying to get it play just one song. If I also try to simultaneously use another app, as I have been doing for many years prior, it will now automatically stop playing. What is with these developers who don’t test out the updates before releasing them to the public and losing many LOYAL customers in return?? I am very frustrated and need this issue to be addressed immediately (for a road trip I’m taking) or I will find another radio music app worth my time and money! Ps- My phone and app have all the most recent updates and I have had no other issues with any other app. Previous Review: Love it! I use Pandora every single day. My only gripe is that I wish we could like/dislike songs on the lock screen without having to unlock the phone each time. Other than that, it's a wonderful app that I'm glad to have :-)
A few improvements would make a big difference!
by Mgurumi on 2018/03/03 03:29
I love pandora. It’s about 90% of how I listen to music. I have the Premium subscription too. So I make good use of it. The biggest complaint I have about the premium version, though, is that if I want to look at my stations, I can click the “stations” filter but it won’t give me any sort options. I believe it defaults to recently listened. But I have a LOT of stations. And sometimes I want to find a particular one. It becomes really hard to quickly find something when I haven’t listened to it in a while. If I could sort my stations alphabetically, it would vastly improve the experience. Alphabetical sort is an option on the subscription one level down. Why should I have to downgrade to get what should be a standard feature? It’s backwards. The other thing I wish was an option was the ability to view my subscription details through the app. I do most everything on my phone or tablet through apps. If I want to look at my subscription info, I have to go to the website (the app only shows what kind of account I have). But the mobile (phone web browser version) website just redirects me to the app. So the only way I can see or change or update subscription info is to find a computer to use, which is inconvenient.
Good Content : Fair Loading Reliability
by GSL-SE Guy on 2018/04/11 15:32
Pandora is smart with assuming what music relates to my chosen bands. They are a little narrow in their offerings from any individual band. For example, if choose a “station” called Supertramp I heat Supertramp’s greatest hits over and over again, which is fine, but if I choose a station based on a specific band, it is safe to assume I like more than just their most popular songs. I should hear their entire catalog. If I choose a genre-based station it is okay to play just hits from various bands in that genre, but if I pick a specific band, Pandora should be smart enough to realize I want everything from that band, not just their hit songs. I also have a frequent connectivity issue. I live in a rural area where it is not uncommon to lose cellular coverage and subsequently my Pandora feed. No problem, I understand this is unavoidable. The problem is that when I regain cellular connectivity Pandora often will not reboot. About half the time I have to turn my phone completely off to get Pandora to restart. This is not safe when I am driving so I either have to pull over or live without Pandora until I get to my destination. I have an iPhone 6s with Apple CarPlay in my vehicle. I love Pandora except for these two issues. Thanks, Mike Kingsley
Love Pandora
by DJaneA on 2018/03/09 09:04
I listen to Ryan Farish radio on Pandora Plus everyday. So relaxing. It has become an addiction. I connect it to my car audio via Bluetooth on the iPhone app and play it on Roku TV while reading, surfing the net and relaxing. I listen to Pandora more than I watch TV. It has a great selection of new age/trance instrumental artists like Ryan Farish (of course), 7 and 5, and Deosil. It throws in some classical, soft jazz, and EDM for variety. Even my bunny likes it! I tried Premium but went back down to Plus. I don’t skip much because it plays most of the music I like that has a thumbs up. I also just like to listen to the music randomly. Most of the songs and artists I like most, could not be replayed or added to playlist on Premium anyways due to licensing. Which is ridiculous considering you’re paying the extra money that should cover this. Another downside is the replay/back button won’t work in the car. I can skip forward using the car’s track button on the steering wheel, but back to replay the song won’t work, especially if the song cannot be replayed because of licensing. I also found the Premium app too confusing. Other than that, love this music. Could listen to it forever.
Crap for free and doesn’t get better with premium
by JordynKLow on 2017/11/05 07:48
Constantly goes offline when I have plenty of service. Now it won’t play the songs on my playlists. I select a song and it chooses a random song from the same playlist. I have premium yet your licensing restrictions require that a lot of the songs I like require to be listened to on the radio part of the app. What’s the point of paying for premium? I’d rather deal with ads. I listen to this app while I’m driving and now with our distracted driving laws in my state this app makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to get it working if it starts wigging out on me. The offline playlists literally play crap music and only play like four songs. When you go back into service it chooses a playlist for you instead of resuming what you had going in the first place. This app is a total waste of money for premium and a total waste of time and effort for commuters without premium. Like if I want to listen to a song over, sure I will listen to an ad but don’t prompt me 7 times about premium before letting me rewind like seriously how am I supposed to listen and drive when the app is asking you 20 freaking questions. Stop making things more of an effort than they need to be. The other day I selected a song and it started randomly playing other songs on that playlist but then immediately choosing another and another and so on. My songs were on a literal shuffle. Get your life together pandora.

Updated march 20th 2018. I think it's pitiful you chose to remove my comment discussing many of the real problems your app is facing rather than deal with them. This app has new glitches since update, songs now stop playing randomly. Pandora is now a bad subscription version of itunes with a free mode. It does not bring you to new music it just replays thumbed up tracks, now i do remember old pandora was not allowed to do this due to copy right laws...so either you found a loop hold or no one was paying attention but now i will be notifiying some people. You need to seriously reevaluate your standards, your algorithm is trash, stop playing slow break up songs in my hard rock lifting station, stop playing commercials about heart problems during my lifting playlist, do not give me the option to get more skips then play an unreasonably long add with an inaudible speaker who cant do more than muble squeek despite a sound booth and head set if thats the whole add they aut to be audible, have a standard, additionally only one additional skip is an inappropriate reward for the add length, very seriously i am telling you to to wake up, this record of events is now in the public domain so take me down ill repost and spread everywhere because at this point you have disrespected me with your foolish attempts to cover up your behavior rather than deal with it responsibly.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Shaka! 2 da Pan do Ra!!!
by IsamuraiZ2sly on 2018/04/22 14:25
Ive moved over, or supposedly up 2 the great I Phone status. Mostly because of an offer and my daughter needed one. But i admit its much better than the ones i had prior. But as expected they cater or offer apps namely music apps of their benefit. I sort of stayed away from the P dora not wanting to feel like a traitor. But somehow your app popped up, and being fm Hawaii. I just gotta have some island/ jawaiian style MsiK! Where the opposite of Orange mSk aPp was clueless and kept showin me empty searches. Dora like the cartoon girl, always lookin for answers n solutions does. Has the MsiK i need like mY psychological/mental fix. U even had all the muSik i had right where me left them. So where Apple has its benefits it offers its customers, which is actually nice. And i see your app has become a little lesss freer. Oh wells. Capitalism. Makes the true potential of man a sick cripple. Its also the pace car that got us here. Kinda drive the donkey gorward, funny that word came out Al Goreward. Or more honestly. Downward. But thank you from a Hawaiian muSik addict. Haha, cuzz i luvs me some local vibes. And it just started playin my Fav Song just about, of all my Life. Safe and Sound - Rebellution.

Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Awesome songs/tunes, good variety and cool artists!
by Julesrules14 on 2018/07/02 17:20
I love pandora. Been a subscriber and a patron and customer/user for the longest time. Used it since I have heard of it coming out. I got tired of YouTube’s, every other song commercials. So I came to use Pandora an oldie but goodie. Always the best do and will survive. I love the fact that I don’t have to skip commercials and that there are not that many. The music and songs are always playing. I don’t have to wait for a song, no buffering, skipping songs is easy. But why would I want to. There is awesome sound quality, the stations/mixes are excellent. The choices of songs from the playlists are remarkable. I approve of all of them. There isn’t one that I don’t like. I am constantly hitting the 👍. Adding bookmarks, creating stations, sharing, and much more. What else can I say. There isn’t much that I couldn’t not say except no videos. So I have nothing but good things to say "terrific app, incredible and hot hits, lovable songs, bands from all eras and genres. Enjoy the app, I know I am! You will too, I just know it once you try it, just listen, turn up the tunes, start to groove. Kick it! Julia
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
"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.
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
Really like Pandora despite its issues
by watsontcbc on 2018/01/06 18:21
I really like Pandora. They fixed the latest crashing issue. I occasionally use and try other apps. Some are good for specific uses, like just finding a specific song or hearing what friends like. But Pandora consistently curated music very very well and I keep coming back, now defaulting to it for general listening in the car and at home. Jazz, electronica, fusion, trance, house, and artist or even song-based stations - you name it: I get an excellent mix suited to my tastes, with new tunes and artists I hadn’t yet heard. Yes, their ad behavior is irritating in the free version. But if you grew up listening to AM radio as I did, this is not really a problem. And if you can’t stand it, ante-up for the premium version. It is totally worth it if you hate the ads that much what with all the extra features you get. Keep it up Pandora. Just don’t make your ad function any more annoying than it already is (like popping up more ads when I just want to see the album cover, making me click two or three times to see it!). If you make it less annoying I’ll give you a full five stars!
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
I love Pandora, but I have some concerns
by forkliftcat on 2018/07/06 01:09
I love Pandora, listen everyday of every week. I bought Pandora Plus because I use it so much, and wanted unlimited skips and replays and no adds. However after 15 - 20 skips I can’t because “licensing restrictions” and I don’t know if the unlimited replays are worth it because in the last 2 months I’ve seen 20 songs I like moved to single song albums and unable to replay. I don’t know why Pandora is doing this, but it’s getting annoying. Paying for unlimited skips and replays but can’t replay any songs I like anymore. Please fix this or do something about it. Also I would like to see more variety of songs. I like a song from one artist and never get any other song from that artist, so I go and look at that artist in Pandora and that artist has plenty more songs; so I don’t know why it’s not playing any of them. Also I like artists that Pandora doesn’t have very many songs for. An example is TheFatRat. Pandora only has about half of his songs, and I have some favorites that I would like to see added like Time Lapse and Windfall. The same goes for various other artists.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
I’m with HER
by Gardengirl18 on 2017/12/05 12:48
I always loved this service and before I was a paying customer, I was a regular subscriber since 2007 and I did love it but there are too many problems with it now! It is constantly buffering, it says it’s playing, the meter shows the music is on and it’s in play status but the problem is there’s nothing coming out! There is no communication between what we hear and what the machine says that we’re supposed to hear and I’m saying everything that the previous person reviewed is exactly how I feel and if this does not fix itself soon, I’m Leaving! I had to now delete the app as per Pandora’s help instructions and my stations and everything else has to be redone! Sometimes I put on gospel music from my coworker that I play with her once a week and once it comes on for some unknown reason I cannot get gospel off and it keeps going into my playlist although the station is the selected and I have close the app hit save and hit shuffle and I cannot get rid of it. Maybe that’s Interventional. Previous Review: I'm surprised to see how the music is chosen for variety. I pay for it, but the optional features are very good.i love Todays Comedy Radio station however, I seem to hear the same bits. So I hit skip a lot. Maybe you can add some variety.
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!
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
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
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
Used to be awesome but then...

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 👌🏼
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.
Needs updating

I love pandora. I usually have it playing most the day every day. There are just a couple things I wish they would change- 1) when you thumbs down a song, I wish they would give you the option of thumbs downing the song OR thumbs downing the artist. Because in all honesty, I'm not thrilled with having Taylor Swift and Pink pop up and play songs on my CCR and Purple Lace stations. 2) can they give us the option of deleting the variety added on stations? I added a variety song to my station because I really liked the song, but then it completely changed the chemistry of the station and now I'm getting some seriously weird and unrelated stuff on there. And deleting the station and making a new one to restart doesn't work. Other than that, there isn't much that I don't like about pandora. They've got some great songs that are great for the stations I've created. And I love that they give me the option of earning some replays and skips. I would give them 5 stars if they could change those two options from above.
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
Needs an update for modern devices
by Josh modern tech geek on 2018/01/05 23:11
Pandora needs an update for a stand alone app compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular. If I lose Bluetooth connection with my actual phone pandora will not work because it uses the app on my phone although I have the add on installed my watch. The point of having cellular on the Apple Watch is if you are out of range on Bluetooth with your phone you can still text, call, email etc from the watch. Would be nice to enjoy my pandora premium out on a walk with the dog without my phone and using my AirPods or out for a jog. iTunes does support a stand alone app for the watch so you can listen to music through AirPods without connection to your phone. Another benefit I would get here would be the usage of battery using pandora on my watch vs phone. I get home from a long day of work and my watch is at 80% and my phone is at 20% and that is off and on wireless charging all day. One of my coworkers opted for the iTunes unlimited subscription and I’m getting jealous for sure...
Needs Improvement

I’ve used Pandora loyally for 6 years now but I’m considering switching to a new platform. 7 months ago I signed up for Pandora Premium and have had little problems with Pandora as an app ever since. It crashes more often then before and my downloaded playlists don’t work have the time. If given the option to download a playlist I made I want to be able to listen to it offline but every time I click play it says that it’s unavailable. I find it hard to believe that of the 50 or so songs that I have in my playlist are all unavailable for playback because of licensing issues. Also on that same subject the playlist does work once, and that is the immediately after I download it but a couple hours later I get squat. The Help section of the app is not nearly as useful as I would like. I would like the option to send the developers a message letting them know something is wrong but no option. I love Pandora and it’s a great service but Premium isn’t worth the money.
Great app, just could use some tweaks
by John (in) Denver on 2018/01/10 20:55
Pandora is one of my favorite apps. I listen to it almost daily. Nearly daily, however, it suffers little issues that frustrate me. Examples: The thumbs up/down feature is cool, but crude and its true functionality is in clear. Consider: A song comes on that I like, but it’s a live version. I hate listening to live versions of songs. So is that a thumbs up or down? Lately, if I have been listening for a while and my phone has gone into sleep mode (not sure that is the proper term), I’ll open the phone again and the pause/play button will be locked. The phone isn’t locked. Other controls work, but I can’t stop/start the music without starting a different station. Very frustrating. One more: I started a new station by picking a band (Alabama). Sure enough, first song was a live version of a mediocre song. I skipped the song. The next few songs that came up were non-Alabama songs I liked - songs I would like on an Alabama station. Thumbs up. No more Alabama songs. I quickly stopped thumbing up, then started skipping. Finally, I thumbed down some songs I actually liked. After an hour of music, Pandora had only played three crappy Alabama songs or crappy versions of good Alabama songs. I quit the station and deleted it. Next day I tried again and had a much better, but not great experience with a new Alabama station. Wonderful, magical, but sometimes very confusing.
Love Pandora, but screen lag causes almost accidental purchases
by roshanda123 on 2018/06/22 14:44
iPhone 6. I love pandora, the only complaint I have is that I do not pay for Pandora Premium and sometimes I feel as if I’m almost tricked into Pandora charging me for premium. At random times the screen will dim and ask if I want to pay for premium or a ‘No Thanks’ option will appear under the ‘Free Trial’ option. Almost every time I go to click ‘No thanks’ the screen reloads (not sure what to call it) and the ‘Free Trial’ button moves to where ‘No Thanks’ was. This is happening as I’m clicking ‘No Thanks’ and Pandora registers that I want to start premium and my iPhone pulls up the purchase confirmation screen. If I had auto-pay set up i would have never known that pandora reloaded the screen and began charging me for premium until I see the charge on my account. Other than that small inconvenience, great app & music variety.
Keeping my station ALL “thumbs up”
by Mawgy! on 2018/05/23 03:32
In general, I am very happy with Pandora. I am subscribed to Pandora Plus, or whatever the no commercial option is called. There is no possible way for me to know the algorhythm, or whatever Pandora uses to choose selections for an individual station. I have been actively using the “thumb system” on a particular station for probably a couple of months now and still choices slip in that are nothing like all the “thumbs up” choices I make. This may be a lot to ask of a “free” station, but I’d even be willing to pay to have my station more streamlined without “thumbs down interruptions.” I want to set a sleep timer and not wake up the next morning hearing all manner of music I’d prefer not to hear and have to go through thumbing down again to maybe achieve what the station was before all those other choices crept in. Pandora offers a unique service, and I’d like to see this option offered for a fee.

I love Pandora and have used some of the same stations for years on my computer and phone. I appreciate that the music adjusts to your responses to tracks they suggest. More often than not, when I thumbs down a track, Pandora suggests a song that follows the same style I am looking for that the song I disliked. It is so slick that you can create inspiration for a station and Pandora finds the songs similar to them for you! The only bummer is that with the last update, the option to add variety was taken away-or I haven’t found it, yet. I have found some new artists I would like to add to one of my longest running playlists, and may just need to be patient. The updates do tend to be more user-friendly than the last, but they are vastly different. So prepare to be on your toes. :) Overall, this music app has been dependable for me for nearly a decade!
Great with a suggestion
by Serial Skipper on 2017/11/30 04:44
Pandora works great for me at the moment. I’ve yet to upgrade to premium but so far I can tolerate the ads (its not that much). I can easily find the songs I like so overall it’s a great app. The suggestion I have though isn’t really required such as recommended. I’d like for the rating of songs to be less broad than “like,” “dislike,” or just no rating at all. I know that I for one have songs that I like and songs that I love as well as songs that I dislike and songs I hate. The suggestion is that instead of just thumbs up or thumbs down there would be an advanced option. This would optimize my listening experience because being able to choose how much “thumbs-uping” or “thumbs-downing” a song will effect the rest of the music on my radio. This would, in turn, allow me to have more control over my music. Thank you for hearing me out!
Upgrade is not there yet
by Jazzman1963 on 2018/04/23 03:33
I have been a loyal Pandora subscriber since the day it came out. Have always had the commercial free service and have loved it. I use Pandora everyday and full disclosure, I am a share holder in the stock. However, with the new Premium account there are a few things missing or almost impossible to find. I liked my stations in alphabetical order. What happened there? I also want to delete a station or now delete a song on a play list. You can’t delete anything anymore. It’s frustrating when you have used something for so long and have REALLY ENJOYED the ease of use and now have an entirely new learning curve. By the way, make sure you are off your home wi if and far enough away from your home before you go into Cell service mode. You will have to pull over and work things out. It can’t be done on the fly anymore. Hopefully all of these small issues will be fixed soon.
