It’s a lot better that Spotify.
by slenderguy1199 on 2019/11/18 12:53
It’s better than Spotify in so many ways but I have question why do I have to add a new song to my playlist every time I get on . It also quits playing my music halfway through the list even if it’s on repeat . I’m new and don’t know how the app works.
I Don’t Mind Ads But...
by ElizabethAnn2015 on 2019/11/18 12:33
I don’t mind ads AT ALL but I hate hearing the same stupid ad over and over again. PLEASE add some variety to the ad choice because I am to the point of turning down the volume when the same annoying ad(s) play. As far as the app function and quality I can’t complain. I’ve had Pandora for a little over 10 years and it’s great. I’m just fed up with hearing the same ads.
Non explicit means non explicit
by gamedrippy on 2019/11/18 10:48
So we play music at work for our customers and for the younger crowd I play the clean hip hop station and filtered the non explicit buuuuut..... I still get explicit language when I play music and it’s scary to even use it at work now. I’m thinking of just not using you guys anymore.

Love Pandora & we have a subscription so my daughter can fall asleep to music, BUT why is the sleep timer buried?? It’s really hard to get to do sometimes the music plays half the night. What a waste. Love it, just with they’d make it easy to access the timer.
Pandora review
by Tom_hollandlover123 on 2019/11/18 04:54
I honestly think that there should be less song that I can only listen to on radio. There should also be less ads and more time on when you get to pick a song with out ads.

Had Pandora Premium on Android for $9.99, switched to iPhone, changed debit cards, had to resubscribe and got charged $4.99 for an upgrade plus the $12.99 charge for Pandora Premium. Too much just for music.

Please fix pandora thumbs
by king of nordland on 2019/11/18 01:02
Pandora is really pissing me off particularly the thumbing of songs if i look at all thumbs I’ve given there are countless duplicate songs and not all the songs I’ve thumbed appear on all thumbed songs for instance I have a playlist pandora created for me called thumbed songs which consists of 90 or so songs while my all thumbs given is over 300 yet only half of these 90 songs are on all thumbs given this angers me because I want to see a list of the entirety of songs I have thumbed but they are spread out into 2 playlists if the issues in this aspect could be fixed this would be a 5 star rating but until I get a single list of ALL my thumbed songs ratings a 3

I’m with the other reviewers
by Aer1ekah on 2019/11/17 21:57
I used to pay for the premium years back before they added more options to take your money. Pandora used to be really good. Lately it is super hit or miss. I do happen to get a lot of songs I like cause I have like 30 stations and I have tailored them over the years back when pandora was point blank free. The problem I get is when I make a new station for a new band or genre - it will play a few good songs from them and then basically melt into some of the other stations I already have. They literally start playing all the same songs as 5 other stations. The songs get a little repetitive as well. I don’t drive a ton lately so this wasn't really bothering me a ton - I would get where I needed to go and wouldn’t be using the app for a while. Then hours later I would use it for the trip home. Many of the same songs would play that played earlier but it was hours later so it didn’t bother me toooo much. On longer drives it’s not fun. Fast forward to the last year and the service has been bad. Every time I try to connect to the app in my car it tells me the USB is bad. Every time. Sometime it will eventually “fix itself” perhaps and play. Much of the time it won’t. It will just sit with the bad usb message on my car stereo. I use the usb for many other things so there is no problem with it. It works for charging and syncing my iPad and iPhone just fine. It’s the app. So it is hit or miss when I can use this app anymore. I live in an area with crappy or nonexistent radio stations so I rely heavily on pandora. So when it doesn’t work at least 60% of the time or more - that’s just not good. When it does work it plays the same 10-20 songs on that station and 5 other stations in that genre but that are totally different sounding. Lastly yes the ads. There are an insane amount of ads. You play 1-2 songs and you get minutes of ads. You skip a song - you get ads. You try to look at the album cover - you accidentally click an ad cause the album is moved to a tiny little square and the ad is full screen. The ads also make the app freeze a lot. Years back I would highly recommend pandora. In fact I did - to everyone I knew in college - friends - family. I couldn’t recommend it anymore in its current state. Find your music elsewhere. Definitely don’t pay for premium.

Better than Spotify!
by thecutegorlbpysfallilovewothme on 2019/11/17 17:07
I gotta admit, Pandora is one of the best things ever! I only thing I don’t like about it is, you can’t find clean version of songs like Apple Music but other than that I love it! The title is Better Than Spotify because I feel like Spotify is so boring all it is is ads and it’s so boring you gotta wait for other songs to play then you get to hear it and your skips goes out so fast and yeah Spotify can be better for sure and I just love Pandora this will be my 2nd choice to go listen to music my 1st will always Apple Music too and yeah, thank you so much Pandora and I hope that this helps you guys to the better music app and thanks for listening to my opinion! It’s so many more comments I got for Spotify but I will keep it for people who will get offended for the comments I got for Spotify and thanks for listening to my opinion!

I’ve used Pandora for years and years, apparently they’ve just recently been purchased by Sirius. Sirius and it’s CEO are long time GOP jagholes who have given millions to Trump. So I guess I’m looking into Spotify to see if they are any better.

The spiritual path of life is here when No one else has a light around me. My desire is to See God , walk W: his son Jesus my lord and master. Music that gives my heart and spirit strength must be nurtured here and I see your words I feel your thoughts, I see more than I deserve. Please continue Gods love in music so I (we) that are alone can find home through it’s light .

Signed up for the free trial, app didn’t recognize that i did, kept asking for me to go on app store to verify subscription... WARNING... do press the button again! Did this three times... charged three times!!!! Had to move mountains to get the refund!!! Pandora.... ABSOLUTELY NO HELP, customer service is nonexistent. Even after being charged three times! For a monthly subscription.....THE APP STILL DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE SUBSCRIPTION, signed out and back in numerous times... deleted the app and re downloaded it.... nothing. Read up on pandora.... they are loosing customers by the millions..... wonder why????? Just use spotify, it actually works and you get something for free!!

Not worth it
by JBanjovie on 2019/11/16 16:13
Pandora Premium was decent, but wound up canceling because it cost too much money. Tried switching to Pandora Plus - would not recommend, it is absolutely horrible. Constantly tries to rope you into watching ads to listen to music, then plays you four songs and switches to something else.
JO JO’s music
by Calypso's heart on 2019/11/16 16:11
Been listening to Pandora since it started. It never fails to enthrall and move my music mind. It is truly stunning the amount of music that it encompasses. I will be listening to it through the end of my time.... May you all find your Nirvana in it.
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.
App needs so much work
by Waelwulfan on 2019/03/28 21:41
The service itself is great. All of my complaints are with the app and not Pandora itself. 1. App seems to get shut down in the background after only a few minutes if it’s not playing music. Even if you’re not doing anything else with your phone. So when you open it back up, everything needs to reload and whatever song you were listening to is gone. 2. CarPlay issues. OMG, where to begin? CarPlay with Pandora is a disaster. Keeps going from Now Playing back to the Stations screen. Stations don’t load (blank screen) sometimes, forcing you to use your phone to get started. If you change stations or skip songs, sometimes the Now Playing screen will still show the previous song for a good 10 seconds or more, during which time onscreen controls like Pause will not work. 3. Offline songs are noticeably louder than if they’re streamed. Offline mode also seems hesitant to switch back online despite a strong and solid network connection. 4. Ever since Offline mode was introduced, the streaming cache has been severely reduced. It used to cache 3-4 songs. Now it doesn’t seem to cache the next song until the current one is half way done. If you’re in a spotty area and you skip the current song, you’re out of luck. I would happily trade Offline mode to get back a bigger streaming cache.
Pandora’ Disclaimer
by CrystalNWilliams on 2018/09/23 14:51
Allow me start off with how much I utilize Pandora. I have had a Pandora account for at least 8 years. But recently I have purchased the Pandora Premium account. I loved the idea of downloading music to listen to later and I have my own personal music list. I loved the idea of the “Offline” feature as well. But recently I have ran into a few issues. 1 of them being when I switch the offline due to being in an airplane... it only allows me to listen to SOME of the songs even though I have downloaded them. When I go to click on the song it states that it is not allowed for playbacks. 🧐 Sooooo... why was able to download it if I can’t replay it?? 2. Then I was listening to my songs with WiFi and it was telling me that I can’t listen to the songs because they are not allowed for playbacks... so no matter what.... you allowed me to feel like I was given the opportunity to have the song on my playlist BUT I can’t listen to it?? 3. You are able to listen to a lot of songs. You can search for a lot of songs. You can discover new songs.... but you can NOT download a lot of these songs... so my conclusion is... deal with the lack of skips, commercials and keep the free option because it’s not worth what they charge. Very disappointing.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
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.
It could be better
by Margaret Kellyyy on 2019/03/10 15:15
I have the premium subscription and overall I’m pleased with the easy to use platform, music selection and the quality of sound. However I do agree with other users that I wish Pandora would give users (especially those that pay for premium) the ability to edit/sort your stations and playlists on your home page. Yes you can filter for your stations or downloaded playlists but I’m pretty particular and I like things to be alphabetical... or the order in which my brain thinks is most logical. But the thing that bothers me THE MOST is the fact that when you pause a song, and lock your phone and walk away for a moment or pause to have a conversation with a coworker and you go back to the app, it acts like you just opened the app and the song you were listening to you, at your favorite part, starts over. What’s with that?! I understand that music apps may be different but the free game apps I have don’t wipe out my progress if I pause the game and “minimize” the app.... why can’t the app I pay monthly for do the same?!?
No radio zone.
by buddhaman79 on 2019/03/22 19:27
I put off moving from Fl to the backwoods of western North Carolina mostly because there was only talk radio and two country stations (I don’t like country at all) but as fait has it, I moved up here anyway in ‘07 & lived in misery until my first smart phone & finding the Pandora app in around ‘14 & found again what living was again. Than in mid 2017 I was working at a house in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end. I got no service out there & the free Pandora didn’t work out of coarse too. At this point I decided to brake down & get Pandora premium for off line playlist. I have had Pandora premium since that time and have never looked back. I love it, it is my personal radio station. Like I own my own station & can play whatever the hell I want. A few things pop up (can’t play due to licensing) but it’s rare enough & it usually doesn’t last long. Dollar for $ it is the best app I have for sure. I literally have it on 12 plus hours a day. From Hannibal Burris to Bradley’s Postmodern jukebox & 99.9% of anything in between.
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
Really like Pandora despite its issues
by watsontcbc on 2018/01/06 18:21
I really like Pandora. They fixed the latest crashing issue. I occasionally use and try other apps. Some are good for specific uses, like just finding a specific song or hearing what friends like. But Pandora consistently curated music very very well and I keep coming back, now defaulting to it for general listening in the car and at home. Jazz, electronica, fusion, trance, house, and artist or even song-based stations - you name it: I get an excellent mix suited to my tastes, with new tunes and artists I hadn’t yet heard. Yes, their ad behavior is irritating in the free version. But if you grew up listening to AM radio as I did, this is not really a problem. And if you can’t stand it, ante-up for the premium version. It is totally worth it if you hate the ads that much what with all the extra features you get. Keep it up Pandora. Just don’t make your ad function any more annoying than it already is (like popping up more ads when I just want to see the album cover, making me click two or three times to see it!). If you make it less annoying I’ll give you a full five stars!
It’s alright...
by FreudTheFish on 2019/08/23 19:32
It’s a good music app and all but it has its flaws. For starters I’m tired of when it switches to autoplay from my playlist it’s usually the same songs in the same order...that’s not auto play. Switch it up man. I hate how when I am in auto play and I stop the app, not close it but stop it, and I go back into it it starts from my most recently played playlist....WHY??? I suggest making it easier to delete playlists or songs in the playlist without having to go into my profile and search around for eternity. Every playlist should have a delete option and every song in that playlist should have a swipe left to remove from playlist option. Another thing is I swear when I do delete a playlist or a song in the playlist it’s gone from my library....every song in that playlist will just poof....disappear. Finally when it comes to making a playlist, give the name it option like you do but give a plus icon so you can browse every song in your library with an add option instead of having to click every song individually, then the three dots, then add to playlist, then which playlist you want it in....simplify man come on!
Organization
by Go2camp on 2019/02/02 20:11
Hi. First if all, I would like to thank you for reading this request. Now I will get on with it. I really like Pandora, but I think that you should make it more organized. I think that the favorites should be on the top of all of the stations. I also think that to make it more attractive, the blue bar at the bottom of the screen should be either white, black, or non-existent. It’s just not attractive, and all of my friends and family agree. I’m sorry if you feel as if I am taking over your business, but that is just the way that the people want it. Only the album covers should be full with color. Everything else, I feel, should be black and white and grey. More modern = more attractive. Sorry, but it’s just what it is. My friends and I would also like if everytime we opened the app, music would not automatically start playing. I hope that you can find the time to make the changes in the next two weeks, or I will definitely be compelled to delete the app. I really do think that this app is a very good app and would like to give you props for making it. But the main point of this review is to tell you that the visual appearance of this app is just not attractive. Thank you for reading. Goodbye.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Best thing
by JungKart on 2019/09/30 00:23
Ive had Pandora for YEARS. I finally upgraded to a paid account instead of free. I wish i had done this years ago. I have always loved pandora and have found so many of my favorite bands through Pandora. Now i used Pandora as a “therapy” or “medication”. Im a combat vet with serious PTSD and until very recently have been able to go without any pills due mostly to Pandora. I know that sounds silly but I legitimately medicate with music (specifically Pandora). I use special stations ive set up when i paint as well for inspiration and to keep the right mood or frame of mind or energy for the style im working on that night. Pandora has been and is currently a godsend for me and theres a decent chance I wouldn’t be here without it. Im a lifetime customer and incredibly appreciative of all the free years i accessed it as well. I hope someone up top reads this review because i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have no idea you’ve done in my life. Tearing up as I write this lol...THANK YOU.
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Has something changed with the Pandora app???
by Musically Lost on 2018/10/13 06:36
Ive had Pandora for several years now, it is the free version. I have not been able to listen to my Pandora for over a week now. When I click into one of my stations, it doesn’t play. I can’t even click play, rewind, or fast forward. The icons are there but not highlighted. I have logged in and out. I’ve turned on/off my phone and I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app. I’ve done this multiple times and still nothing. When I exit out of the station to browse for other options, it says buffering...your station will be right back. I logged out of my account and had my son log into his account on my phone and his account works on my phone. I contacted the help support explaining all of this, and they sent me the troubleshooting information from their website after I explained I’ve already done all of the troubleshooting. The email they sent me said, if I was still having trouble, to respond to their email, which I did , and I still have not heard anything back. Horrible, horrible customer support.
Ruined a really nice visual package
by Mrjombi on 2019/08/03 22:07
As much as I have tooted the greatness of Pandora in the past I was very disappointed with the total upgrade. On my old tablet the screen was perfect in design and functionality. Nice white and blue background, album cover placed in the upper right, all channels in a row down the left, other options easy to find and use. When I was forced to get a new iPad I was shocked at the latest version of Pandora I had to reluctantly download. Gone was the clean easy to read screen. Now I have a gigantic album on my screen or lots of blue screen everywhere else. You can either see that cover OR your channels. And information about the artist isn’t even on the channel page, you need to go to another page! Yuck. I will no longer tell my friends how they should move to Pandora. Visually it’s wrecked. I would also create an update that allows the current station to be better marked in the list. At this point the stations are very small, a half inch tall space on my tablet with very tiny print. I’m pretty certain the shading to mark it was lightened to a faint grey. I really end up staring to figure out which one I, on. Now about colors, a blue streak, a red streak? Something that stands out.
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
It’s the little things
by vnfectvous on 2018/09/15 01:17
I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Great App! But..
by ARTIECamJT on 2019/09/04 16:41
Hi! I’ve been using Pandora for awhile. But not like 4 years or something 😅. I just want to say I love this app! I love how you can search the song you want! I honestly don’t have a problem with seeing an add when you search for the song. I kinda like the way you made the add it’s very creative to :). Anyway the reason I’m typing this is because recently the app has been having bugs like this morning ((on this date)) when I search the song I want and then after watching the add it looks like I’m gonna listen to the song but then it stops and says “Something went wrong”. And so I’m like oh ok, I’ll just try it again. Then after the add it says the same thing! I was a little irritated about it.. so I just wanted to tell you guys that there are some bugs going on in the app. Oh and another thing I wanted to say is that sometimes there’s a little to much adds when in on a radio I like. Anyway! So far I LOVE this app! It’s improved so much! ☺️ Respond if you can!
The Best Playlists
by steve.edwards on 2019/10/14 19:16
I’ve been using Pandora since 2003 or 2004 and it has introduced me to so many new artists that I have proudly shared with friends through the years. The patchwork of music that Pandora plays is still, I think, unparalleled when comparing the other big music streaming services. Being able to share new music with a friend and hear them say “This is awesome, I haven’t heard this before!” is all thanks to Pandora and has fed that hipster pride that many who enjoy music feel when they’ve “heard something that you’ve probably never heard of”. If I’m being honest I got to hear it only because Pandora heard it first and added it to whatever station I was listening to—Thank you Pandora for bringing so much great music to myself and those close to me AND allowing me to help cultivate stations throughout the years by giving a thumbs up, thumbs down, and to add variety to a station. PS: Reading the Artist bio’s when you get the chance can be really interesting!
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
Pandora Harassment
by andrewsappreview on 2019/05/06 21:21
I’m only giving Pandora one star based on their usability and not the streaming quality itself. Using the app is generally good and easy. When you open the app while listening and attempt to change something you must wait every time and tell Pandora you do not wish to purchase Pandora Premium for $4.99. Asking me every time I want to change my station, look at your app, or give feedback to a song I’m prompted to deny paying for their service. How asinine it that? If a guy ask gets turned down once and keeps asking a girl out it becomes harassment. Essential Pandora is harassing its users into paying for its service when I clearly do not and will not do so. Sooo IF anyone reads this, why don’t you ask for a raise every time you do your job and see how well that works. If it works, keep the service. If it doesn’t, suggest changing this to maybe once a day and earn a raise with better customer support/ friendlier interface. Or do nothing because you don’t care and I’ll leave my review. If you change this I’ll also change my review to 5 stars because it is a good service, you’re just being obnoxious for no reason other than being obnoxious. Best of luck.
Meh
by Sparky3860 on 2018/11/16 11:26
I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.

Pandora filled my summer with exquisite songs and I found a lot of new music to listen to. I enjoyed the pleasant slow walks with quick steps in between running to soft calming tunes. I enjoyed the late night parties to Spanish music. I enjoyed the summer mornings spent playing basketball with my ball dribbling to the beat of drums. I could not put it into better words, but I felt like I was in love every single day in July and August. I cannot believe music has come this far. I cannot even trace where I found all such great music. The world definitely does not deserve Pandora because it gives more than we give back. I don't even have a favorite song. Because of all the great music Pandora has to offer. Rather I have a myriad of favorite songs ranging from R&B, pop, classic rock and romantic music. With artists like American Authors, OneRepublic, Pink, Daft Punk, and Taylor Swift. And favorite movie soundtracks like Paper Towns, Love Story, and Valerian. Love, yours truly, and number one listener: Veronica Andrade
Life expression through harmony of time an place of the poetically timed !
by 2chichi on 2018/09/19 04:36
Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
I love this app but something just happened...
by Glinderella on 2017/09/07 00:52
Okay, so this app is amazing. Just because you have to pay for no adds and offline use and all of that junk it's a great app. I've been using it for I think a year, maybe more, maybe less. I don't know. After the resent update, Pandora forces me to use my free trial for Pandora Premium. I was saving it for my next summer vacation so I could really enjoy it instead of just knowing I'm wasting my week of an amazing Pandora experience. At first, I had absolutely no idea what was going on and for a minute I thought I had bought the subscription and being a fourteen year old, I was super scared that I was charging my mother's bank account. So, Pandora, if you read this, your app is amazing, but please take away my free trial and let me save it!! Thank you! I haven't had any crashes, like ever. (The teenager came out sorry) so I'm not afraid of that. This app really deserves 5 stars except the free trial thing. Okay, so, all in all, this is a great app and you should really get it. It's the best one like it.
Love Pandora! Avid user... BUT!
by Beccajean89 on 2019/05/13 14:31
I love Pandora. I use it daily. It's awesome. Between my own personal use, and then playing for my kids while they play, we use it for hours and hours each day. BUT! I've got two problems with it: 1) for some reason, the app won't let me hit play from my lock screen after it's been paused for a few seconds. It just automatically re-pauses. I've gotta unlock the phone and then go back in and hit play that way. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. 2) my biggest problem is the ads. Having Ads- not a big deal. It's the ad CONTENT that gets me. My kids will be listening to a Disney themed station or Veggie Tales station and an ad for Tampax or Trojan condoms will come on. I don't think those ads are very appropriate. If they're played after a certain time each night- sure, whatever. But this was in the late mornings and early afternoon on kid stations. I'll keep using Pandora. I love it! I'll just have to make sure I turn the volume off in a hurry if inappropriate ads pop up.
Crashes .. not all songs are playable
by djmmb on 2018/08/04 04:58
I can’t believe that pandora cost so much when it does so little. All the music I want has copy right issues and I can’t play them or download ..pandora says you can only use one user at a time.... Netflix lets you have multiple user for a fee(still cheaper then pandora and it’s freaking movies ) .. just an idea maybe you should drop the price so you can get more people on pandora premium.. and charge a little more for multiple users per account ... and yeah this program crashes all the time I have a iPhone X and it’s really choppy... make the playlist feature more user friendly and a lot more editable.. offline player has a lot of issues when transferring in and out of online and offline .. music some times plays out of the blue when on Bluetooth via car phone ... so yeah the free pandora is mosdeff a 5 star ,premium is a 1 for all the money I’m paying ... thank you for reading ...
My go to! But....
by TorresDotRealtor on 2019/11/01 00:51
I’ve had Pandora for a very long time and i enjoy how it knows me so well after a decade of listening. There are a few things i would add, such as a driving mode where touch controls are bigger and more pronounced. The upgrade pop up is freakin annoying, but you gotta do what you gotta do, i do suggest maybe a delay when it pops up, because it appears as soon as you wake up your phone and ive hit that banner a million and one times so far when i try to change a station or song. As for the biggest issue right now is pandora when apple maps is open. It completely messes up voice turn by turn and you only get audio prompts which defeats the purpose of eyes on the road. No matter what settings i change in Pandora or maps, no voice turn by turn possible when playing a song. This doesn't happen with any other music app...just saying. Overall great music service and ill update the review as soon as these issue get fixed....running on iPhoneSE....i need to upgrade, i know, but youuu have the money? Exactly, so shut up. Lol jk Love you 😍
What happened
by ThePowerful on 2019/02/01 01:29
I used to love Pandora because it was free music that played all my favorite music and had a wide variety of music from movie soundtracks to music you hear everyday on the radio. But this past year or so Pandora hasn’t been the best. For one it used to have a problem where it would just shut off for no reason at all but that problem seemed to get fix. But now there’s a problem with loading the music, sometimes radio stations won’t load and you’ll either have to play with a couple of other stations and then go back to that one. I understand the concept of liking songs and hearing similar songs like that one you liked but they continuously play the same liked songs all the time. I realized that you’re better off not liking or disliking a song if you want to hear different music. The last thing is the ads. I know that’s how you make your money and a lot of us can’t afford to pay for premium but it’s annoying when you can only listen to 2 songs before an ad pops up. I wish y’all would fix some of these problems
No longer in Denial
by "aine" on 2019/09/26 20:00
I’ve been in denial over the functionality of Pandora for over a year now. After years of free listening with manageable ads I found that the number, frequency and length of ads went up exponentially about a year ago. So I decided to upgrade. Commercial free and offline listening were big selling points to me. However it’s not really commercial free is it? I would have to play an ad to replay a song and sometimes even to skip. And don’t get me started on the offline listening feature. I am a commuter and am often on the subways and I find that not only do I have to have turned on the offline listening option before I’m underground but I only have a selection of maybe a dozen songs in that playlist. If I don’t switch to the offline listening option before I’m out of range there is no offline listening for me at all. Instead I watch as Pandora skips and buffers through dozens of songs as I listen to the complaints of commuters around me. I can’t honestly note a praiseworthy aspect of Pandora right now and since I’ve canceled my subscription I have such a sense of alleviation. I am no longer wasting money or energy over an app that doesn’t work.
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 👌🏼
Terrible app!
by Ashley5330 on 2019/07/30 17:36
I really like Pandora, so I decided to get the premium version. 1. Unfortunately, one of my biggest issues is that the songs stop playing randomly unless I stay in the app with my phone on the whole time. This can get really annoying when you have to keep going back into the app to resume the song. 2. When I put the app in offline mode there are still lots of problems. I’ll be listening to my music while I’m doing something like hw and then it will start playing two songs at once. I can only pause one song and the other one just keeps playing. So, I have to go back in to close the app and wait a few minutes to reopen it and restart my playlist. 3. When I want to add new songs to a playlist i go to turn off offline mode, but then everything freezes! I can’t scroll, edit, or turn offline mode back on. I know that all of these have little fixes but it is such a pain to stop what you’re doing to fix these. Listening to music is supposed to be enjoyable and this just ruins it. I suggest to anyone wanting to get premium not too. I’d take the ads over this any day.
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.
Awesome App But Too Laggy
by _ChillPill_ on 2019/09/24 11:28
This app is fantastic!! I’ve never searched for a song & not found it; and I love how they have albums and podcasts too! Plus it’s free😱🤩 All you have to do is watch a short ad, and then you can listen to about seven or so songs. You also have the option to pay for no ads, which is really great too. My only problem is how laggy it is sometimes. Maybe it’s just my bad internet, but it gets stuck a lot, and I have to close it for a while before I can even click buttons on it. My phone has the latest version so I don’t think my end is the problem 🤷🏼‍♀️ Another Thing is that if you listen to a song, what will play next is a station, and you can get into some junk. There’s a lot of inappropriate songs that come up, I’d definitely say 13+, because you could accidentally get into a song that’s full of cussing. Overall, I listen to Pandora all the time 💙 and I definitely recommend it!
I love Pandora, but I have some concerns
by forkliftcat on 2018/08/01 22:56
I love Pandora, use it almost everyday, and have Pandora Plus. But I have some concerns. One being that quite a bit of songs I like have been made unrepeatable. Another is that they change songs and artists, for example on my station they replaced Avicii’s Wake Me Up with a version done by another artist and now I don’t get Avicii’s version but they still have his version in the app. Thirdly is the seeming lack of variety that I get. There’s been several times where I like a song by an artist and don’t get any other song by them, even though Pandora has more songs from them. I would hope that these get resolved at some point, and would also like it if they added more songs from artists like the plenty of TheFatRat songs there are that aren’t on Pandora. I still love Pandora despite these concerns and will continue to use it, and would recommend Pandora to anybody.
It’s Awesome, And I Recommend It
by ----Nonya---- on 2019/07/22 02:44
I had this song stuck in my head from my favorite musician, and when I put pandora on the song I had in my head came on. I mean sure, that was a little creepy but still cool at the same time. I mean, I didn’t have to look it up. But anyway, it has a nice diversity of songs and if you decide to create your own station you can customize it to have your favorite songs- you just need to like the songs first, etc. I have one problem though- Whenever I use an app that has music and stuff, I turn the music and sounds off for that app but I can’t have the song I’m listening to resume. It’s a bit frustrating when this happens- I don’t know if it’s a part of Pandora or if it occurs because of the game I’m playing but it’s really annoying. But what I am trying to say is, is that Pandora is a great app to use if you want to listen to your favorite songs. So I definitely recommend it.
Lots of bugs - can’t play songs and frequently offline
by GBTG1 on 2017/11/09 12:32
My Pandora experience has been getting worse and worse - I’ve been struggling to play songs bc it often freezes on any given song and I can’t play or pause or forward to the next song. (Its frozen right now I’m fact) I have the kill the app and try again. The app also frequently takes me offline when I have good connectivity. I’ve also had a problem where my Pandora will start to randomly play in my pocket. When I go to shut it off I try to pause it from the lock screen of my iPhone, which doesn’t work. I then have to authenticate to get into my phone and navigate to the Pandora app to stop the music. Only the pause button in the Pandora app doesn’t work either (meanwhile the music is still playing loudly). Now I need to kill the app which takes several seconds on the iPhone X. Very poor experience overall. The app doesn’t function properly for what it’s designed for and the random playing in my pocket (when my screen is locked btw with a password) is even more horrible, especially when I’m at work and I can’t turn it off!!! Fix these issues please.

by slenderguy1199 on 2019/11/18 12:53
It’s better than Spotify in so many ways but I have question why do I have to add a new song to my playlist every time I get on . It also quits playing my music halfway through the list even if it’s on repeat . I’m new and don’t know how the app works.
I Don’t Mind Ads But...
by ElizabethAnn2015 on 2019/11/18 12:33
I don’t mind ads AT ALL but I hate hearing the same stupid ad over and over again. PLEASE add some variety to the ad choice because I am to the point of turning down the volume when the same annoying ad(s) play. As far as the app function and quality I can’t complain. I’ve had Pandora for a little over 10 years and it’s great. I’m just fed up with hearing the same ads.
Non explicit means non explicit
by gamedrippy on 2019/11/18 10:48
So we play music at work for our customers and for the younger crowd I play the clean hip hop station and filtered the non explicit buuuuut..... I still get explicit language when I play music and it’s scary to even use it at work now. I’m thinking of just not using you guys anymore.

Love Pandora & we have a subscription so my daughter can fall asleep to music, BUT why is the sleep timer buried?? It’s really hard to get to do sometimes the music plays half the night. What a waste. Love it, just with they’d make it easy to access the timer.
Pandora review
by Tom_hollandlover123 on 2019/11/18 04:54
I honestly think that there should be less song that I can only listen to on radio. There should also be less ads and more time on when you get to pick a song with out ads.

Pandora is really pissing me off particularly the thumbing of songs if i look at all thumbs I’ve given there are countless duplicate songs and not all the songs I’ve thumbed appear on all thumbed songs for instance I have a playlist pandora created for me called thumbed songs which consists of 90 or so songs while my all thumbs given is over 300 yet only half of these 90 songs are on all thumbs given this angers me because I want to see a list of the entirety of songs I have thumbed but they are spread out into 2 playlists if the issues in this aspect could be fixed this would be a 5 star rating but until I get a single list of ALL my thumbed songs ratings a 3

by Aer1ekah on 2019/11/17 21:57
I used to pay for the premium years back before they added more options to take your money. Pandora used to be really good. Lately it is super hit or miss. I do happen to get a lot of songs I like cause I have like 30 stations and I have tailored them over the years back when pandora was point blank free. The problem I get is when I make a new station for a new band or genre - it will play a few good songs from them and then basically melt into some of the other stations I already have. They literally start playing all the same songs as 5 other stations. The songs get a little repetitive as well. I don’t drive a ton lately so this wasn't really bothering me a ton - I would get where I needed to go and wouldn’t be using the app for a while. Then hours later I would use it for the trip home. Many of the same songs would play that played earlier but it was hours later so it didn’t bother me toooo much. On longer drives it’s not fun. Fast forward to the last year and the service has been bad. Every time I try to connect to the app in my car it tells me the USB is bad. Every time. Sometime it will eventually “fix itself” perhaps and play. Much of the time it won’t. It will just sit with the bad usb message on my car stereo. I use the usb for many other things so there is no problem with it. It works for charging and syncing my iPad and iPhone just fine. It’s the app. So it is hit or miss when I can use this app anymore. I live in an area with crappy or nonexistent radio stations so I rely heavily on pandora. So when it doesn’t work at least 60% of the time or more - that’s just not good. When it does work it plays the same 10-20 songs on that station and 5 other stations in that genre but that are totally different sounding. Lastly yes the ads. There are an insane amount of ads. You play 1-2 songs and you get minutes of ads. You skip a song - you get ads. You try to look at the album cover - you accidentally click an ad cause the album is moved to a tiny little square and the ad is full screen. The ads also make the app freeze a lot. Years back I would highly recommend pandora. In fact I did - to everyone I knew in college - friends - family. I couldn’t recommend it anymore in its current state. Find your music elsewhere. Definitely don’t pay for premium.

Better than Spotify!
by thecutegorlbpysfallilovewothme on 2019/11/17 17:07
I gotta admit, Pandora is one of the best things ever! I only thing I don’t like about it is, you can’t find clean version of songs like Apple Music but other than that I love it! The title is Better Than Spotify because I feel like Spotify is so boring all it is is ads and it’s so boring you gotta wait for other songs to play then you get to hear it and your skips goes out so fast and yeah Spotify can be better for sure and I just love Pandora this will be my 2nd choice to go listen to music my 1st will always Apple Music too and yeah, thank you so much Pandora and I hope that this helps you guys to the better music app and thanks for listening to my opinion! It’s so many more comments I got for Spotify but I will keep it for people who will get offended for the comments I got for Spotify and thanks for listening to my opinion!

I’ve used Pandora for years and years, apparently they’ve just recently been purchased by Sirius. Sirius and it’s CEO are long time GOP jagholes who have given millions to Trump. So I guess I’m looking into Spotify to see if they are any better.

Signed up for the free trial, app didn’t recognize that i did, kept asking for me to go on app store to verify subscription... WARNING... do press the button again! Did this three times... charged three times!!!! Had to move mountains to get the refund!!! Pandora.... ABSOLUTELY NO HELP, customer service is nonexistent. Even after being charged three times! For a monthly subscription.....THE APP STILL DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE SUBSCRIPTION, signed out and back in numerous times... deleted the app and re downloaded it.... nothing. Read up on pandora.... they are loosing customers by the millions..... wonder why????? Just use spotify, it actually works and you get something for free!!

Not worth it
by JBanjovie on 2019/11/16 16:13
Pandora Premium was decent, but wound up canceling because it cost too much money. Tried switching to Pandora Plus - would not recommend, it is absolutely horrible. Constantly tries to rope you into watching ads to listen to music, then plays you four songs and switches to something else.

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.
App needs so much work
by Waelwulfan on 2019/03/28 21:41
The service itself is great. All of my complaints are with the app and not Pandora itself. 1. App seems to get shut down in the background after only a few minutes if it’s not playing music. Even if you’re not doing anything else with your phone. So when you open it back up, everything needs to reload and whatever song you were listening to is gone. 2. CarPlay issues. OMG, where to begin? CarPlay with Pandora is a disaster. Keeps going from Now Playing back to the Stations screen. Stations don’t load (blank screen) sometimes, forcing you to use your phone to get started. If you change stations or skip songs, sometimes the Now Playing screen will still show the previous song for a good 10 seconds or more, during which time onscreen controls like Pause will not work. 3. Offline songs are noticeably louder than if they’re streamed. Offline mode also seems hesitant to switch back online despite a strong and solid network connection. 4. Ever since Offline mode was introduced, the streaming cache has been severely reduced. It used to cache 3-4 songs. Now it doesn’t seem to cache the next song until the current one is half way done. If you’re in a spotty area and you skip the current song, you’re out of luck. I would happily trade Offline mode to get back a bigger streaming cache.
Pandora’ Disclaimer
by CrystalNWilliams on 2018/09/23 14:51
Allow me start off with how much I utilize Pandora. I have had a Pandora account for at least 8 years. But recently I have purchased the Pandora Premium account. I loved the idea of downloading music to listen to later and I have my own personal music list. I loved the idea of the “Offline” feature as well. But recently I have ran into a few issues. 1 of them being when I switch the offline due to being in an airplane... it only allows me to listen to SOME of the songs even though I have downloaded them. When I go to click on the song it states that it is not allowed for playbacks. 🧐 Sooooo... why was able to download it if I can’t replay it?? 2. Then I was listening to my songs with WiFi and it was telling me that I can’t listen to the songs because they are not allowed for playbacks... so no matter what.... you allowed me to feel like I was given the opportunity to have the song on my playlist BUT I can’t listen to it?? 3. You are able to listen to a lot of songs. You can search for a lot of songs. You can discover new songs.... but you can NOT download a lot of these songs... so my conclusion is... deal with the lack of skips, commercials and keep the free option because it’s not worth what they charge. Very disappointing.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
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.
It could be better
by Margaret Kellyyy on 2019/03/10 15:15
I have the premium subscription and overall I’m pleased with the easy to use platform, music selection and the quality of sound. However I do agree with other users that I wish Pandora would give users (especially those that pay for premium) the ability to edit/sort your stations and playlists on your home page. Yes you can filter for your stations or downloaded playlists but I’m pretty particular and I like things to be alphabetical... or the order in which my brain thinks is most logical. But the thing that bothers me THE MOST is the fact that when you pause a song, and lock your phone and walk away for a moment or pause to have a conversation with a coworker and you go back to the app, it acts like you just opened the app and the song you were listening to you, at your favorite part, starts over. What’s with that?! I understand that music apps may be different but the free game apps I have don’t wipe out my progress if I pause the game and “minimize” the app.... why can’t the app I pay monthly for do the same?!?

I put off moving from Fl to the backwoods of western North Carolina mostly because there was only talk radio and two country stations (I don’t like country at all) but as fait has it, I moved up here anyway in ‘07 & lived in misery until my first smart phone & finding the Pandora app in around ‘14 & found again what living was again. Than in mid 2017 I was working at a house in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end. I got no service out there & the free Pandora didn’t work out of coarse too. At this point I decided to brake down & get Pandora premium for off line playlist. I have had Pandora premium since that time and have never looked back. I love it, it is my personal radio station. Like I own my own station & can play whatever the hell I want. A few things pop up (can’t play due to licensing) but it’s rare enough & it usually doesn’t last long. Dollar for $ it is the best app I have for sure. I literally have it on 12 plus hours a day. From Hannibal Burris to Bradley’s Postmodern jukebox & 99.9% of anything in between.
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
Really like Pandora despite its issues
by watsontcbc on 2018/01/06 18:21
I really like Pandora. They fixed the latest crashing issue. I occasionally use and try other apps. Some are good for specific uses, like just finding a specific song or hearing what friends like. But Pandora consistently curated music very very well and I keep coming back, now defaulting to it for general listening in the car and at home. Jazz, electronica, fusion, trance, house, and artist or even song-based stations - you name it: I get an excellent mix suited to my tastes, with new tunes and artists I hadn’t yet heard. Yes, their ad behavior is irritating in the free version. But if you grew up listening to AM radio as I did, this is not really a problem. And if you can’t stand it, ante-up for the premium version. It is totally worth it if you hate the ads that much what with all the extra features you get. Keep it up Pandora. Just don’t make your ad function any more annoying than it already is (like popping up more ads when I just want to see the album cover, making me click two or three times to see it!). If you make it less annoying I’ll give you a full five stars!
It’s alright...
by FreudTheFish on 2019/08/23 19:32
It’s a good music app and all but it has its flaws. For starters I’m tired of when it switches to autoplay from my playlist it’s usually the same songs in the same order...that’s not auto play. Switch it up man. I hate how when I am in auto play and I stop the app, not close it but stop it, and I go back into it it starts from my most recently played playlist....WHY??? I suggest making it easier to delete playlists or songs in the playlist without having to go into my profile and search around for eternity. Every playlist should have a delete option and every song in that playlist should have a swipe left to remove from playlist option. Another thing is I swear when I do delete a playlist or a song in the playlist it’s gone from my library....every song in that playlist will just poof....disappear. Finally when it comes to making a playlist, give the name it option like you do but give a plus icon so you can browse every song in your library with an add option instead of having to click every song individually, then the three dots, then add to playlist, then which playlist you want it in....simplify man come on!
Organization
by Go2camp on 2019/02/02 20:11
Hi. First if all, I would like to thank you for reading this request. Now I will get on with it. I really like Pandora, but I think that you should make it more organized. I think that the favorites should be on the top of all of the stations. I also think that to make it more attractive, the blue bar at the bottom of the screen should be either white, black, or non-existent. It’s just not attractive, and all of my friends and family agree. I’m sorry if you feel as if I am taking over your business, but that is just the way that the people want it. Only the album covers should be full with color. Everything else, I feel, should be black and white and grey. More modern = more attractive. Sorry, but it’s just what it is. My friends and I would also like if everytime we opened the app, music would not automatically start playing. I hope that you can find the time to make the changes in the next two weeks, or I will definitely be compelled to delete the app. I really do think that this app is a very good app and would like to give you props for making it. But the main point of this review is to tell you that the visual appearance of this app is just not attractive. Thank you for reading. Goodbye.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Best thing
by JungKart on 2019/09/30 00:23
Ive had Pandora for YEARS. I finally upgraded to a paid account instead of free. I wish i had done this years ago. I have always loved pandora and have found so many of my favorite bands through Pandora. Now i used Pandora as a “therapy” or “medication”. Im a combat vet with serious PTSD and until very recently have been able to go without any pills due mostly to Pandora. I know that sounds silly but I legitimately medicate with music (specifically Pandora). I use special stations ive set up when i paint as well for inspiration and to keep the right mood or frame of mind or energy for the style im working on that night. Pandora has been and is currently a godsend for me and theres a decent chance I wouldn’t be here without it. Im a lifetime customer and incredibly appreciative of all the free years i accessed it as well. I hope someone up top reads this review because i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have no idea you’ve done in my life. Tearing up as I write this lol...THANK YOU.
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Has something changed with the Pandora app???
by Musically Lost on 2018/10/13 06:36
Ive had Pandora for several years now, it is the free version. I have not been able to listen to my Pandora for over a week now. When I click into one of my stations, it doesn’t play. I can’t even click play, rewind, or fast forward. The icons are there but not highlighted. I have logged in and out. I’ve turned on/off my phone and I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app. I’ve done this multiple times and still nothing. When I exit out of the station to browse for other options, it says buffering...your station will be right back. I logged out of my account and had my son log into his account on my phone and his account works on my phone. I contacted the help support explaining all of this, and they sent me the troubleshooting information from their website after I explained I’ve already done all of the troubleshooting. The email they sent me said, if I was still having trouble, to respond to their email, which I did , and I still have not heard anything back. Horrible, horrible customer support.
Ruined a really nice visual package
by Mrjombi on 2019/08/03 22:07
As much as I have tooted the greatness of Pandora in the past I was very disappointed with the total upgrade. On my old tablet the screen was perfect in design and functionality. Nice white and blue background, album cover placed in the upper right, all channels in a row down the left, other options easy to find and use. When I was forced to get a new iPad I was shocked at the latest version of Pandora I had to reluctantly download. Gone was the clean easy to read screen. Now I have a gigantic album on my screen or lots of blue screen everywhere else. You can either see that cover OR your channels. And information about the artist isn’t even on the channel page, you need to go to another page! Yuck. I will no longer tell my friends how they should move to Pandora. Visually it’s wrecked. I would also create an update that allows the current station to be better marked in the list. At this point the stations are very small, a half inch tall space on my tablet with very tiny print. I’m pretty certain the shading to mark it was lightened to a faint grey. I really end up staring to figure out which one I, on. Now about colors, a blue streak, a red streak? Something that stands out.
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
It’s the little things
by vnfectvous on 2018/09/15 01:17
I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Great App! But..
by ARTIECamJT on 2019/09/04 16:41
Hi! I’ve been using Pandora for awhile. But not like 4 years or something 😅. I just want to say I love this app! I love how you can search the song you want! I honestly don’t have a problem with seeing an add when you search for the song. I kinda like the way you made the add it’s very creative to :). Anyway the reason I’m typing this is because recently the app has been having bugs like this morning ((on this date)) when I search the song I want and then after watching the add it looks like I’m gonna listen to the song but then it stops and says “Something went wrong”. And so I’m like oh ok, I’ll just try it again. Then after the add it says the same thing! I was a little irritated about it.. so I just wanted to tell you guys that there are some bugs going on in the app. Oh and another thing I wanted to say is that sometimes there’s a little to much adds when in on a radio I like. Anyway! So far I LOVE this app! It’s improved so much! ☺️ Respond if you can!
The Best Playlists
by steve.edwards on 2019/10/14 19:16
I’ve been using Pandora since 2003 or 2004 and it has introduced me to so many new artists that I have proudly shared with friends through the years. The patchwork of music that Pandora plays is still, I think, unparalleled when comparing the other big music streaming services. Being able to share new music with a friend and hear them say “This is awesome, I haven’t heard this before!” is all thanks to Pandora and has fed that hipster pride that many who enjoy music feel when they’ve “heard something that you’ve probably never heard of”. If I’m being honest I got to hear it only because Pandora heard it first and added it to whatever station I was listening to—Thank you Pandora for bringing so much great music to myself and those close to me AND allowing me to help cultivate stations throughout the years by giving a thumbs up, thumbs down, and to add variety to a station. PS: Reading the Artist bio’s when you get the chance can be really interesting!
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
Pandora Harassment
by andrewsappreview on 2019/05/06 21:21
I’m only giving Pandora one star based on their usability and not the streaming quality itself. Using the app is generally good and easy. When you open the app while listening and attempt to change something you must wait every time and tell Pandora you do not wish to purchase Pandora Premium for $4.99. Asking me every time I want to change my station, look at your app, or give feedback to a song I’m prompted to deny paying for their service. How asinine it that? If a guy ask gets turned down once and keeps asking a girl out it becomes harassment. Essential Pandora is harassing its users into paying for its service when I clearly do not and will not do so. Sooo IF anyone reads this, why don’t you ask for a raise every time you do your job and see how well that works. If it works, keep the service. If it doesn’t, suggest changing this to maybe once a day and earn a raise with better customer support/ friendlier interface. Or do nothing because you don’t care and I’ll leave my review. If you change this I’ll also change my review to 5 stars because it is a good service, you’re just being obnoxious for no reason other than being obnoxious. Best of luck.
Meh
by Sparky3860 on 2018/11/16 11:26
I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.

Pandora filled my summer with exquisite songs and I found a lot of new music to listen to. I enjoyed the pleasant slow walks with quick steps in between running to soft calming tunes. I enjoyed the late night parties to Spanish music. I enjoyed the summer mornings spent playing basketball with my ball dribbling to the beat of drums. I could not put it into better words, but I felt like I was in love every single day in July and August. I cannot believe music has come this far. I cannot even trace where I found all such great music. The world definitely does not deserve Pandora because it gives more than we give back. I don't even have a favorite song. Because of all the great music Pandora has to offer. Rather I have a myriad of favorite songs ranging from R&B, pop, classic rock and romantic music. With artists like American Authors, OneRepublic, Pink, Daft Punk, and Taylor Swift. And favorite movie soundtracks like Paper Towns, Love Story, and Valerian. Love, yours truly, and number one listener: Veronica Andrade
Life expression through harmony of time an place of the poetically timed !
by 2chichi on 2018/09/19 04:36
Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
I love this app but something just happened...
by Glinderella on 2017/09/07 00:52
Okay, so this app is amazing. Just because you have to pay for no adds and offline use and all of that junk it's a great app. I've been using it for I think a year, maybe more, maybe less. I don't know. After the resent update, Pandora forces me to use my free trial for Pandora Premium. I was saving it for my next summer vacation so I could really enjoy it instead of just knowing I'm wasting my week of an amazing Pandora experience. At first, I had absolutely no idea what was going on and for a minute I thought I had bought the subscription and being a fourteen year old, I was super scared that I was charging my mother's bank account. So, Pandora, if you read this, your app is amazing, but please take away my free trial and let me save it!! Thank you! I haven't had any crashes, like ever. (The teenager came out sorry) so I'm not afraid of that. This app really deserves 5 stars except the free trial thing. Okay, so, all in all, this is a great app and you should really get it. It's the best one like it.
Love Pandora! Avid user... BUT!

I love Pandora. I use it daily. It's awesome. Between my own personal use, and then playing for my kids while they play, we use it for hours and hours each day. BUT! I've got two problems with it: 1) for some reason, the app won't let me hit play from my lock screen after it's been paused for a few seconds. It just automatically re-pauses. I've gotta unlock the phone and then go back in and hit play that way. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. 2) my biggest problem is the ads. Having Ads- not a big deal. It's the ad CONTENT that gets me. My kids will be listening to a Disney themed station or Veggie Tales station and an ad for Tampax or Trojan condoms will come on. I don't think those ads are very appropriate. If they're played after a certain time each night- sure, whatever. But this was in the late mornings and early afternoon on kid stations. I'll keep using Pandora. I love it! I'll just have to make sure I turn the volume off in a hurry if inappropriate ads pop up.
Crashes .. not all songs are playable

I can’t believe that pandora cost so much when it does so little. All the music I want has copy right issues and I can’t play them or download ..pandora says you can only use one user at a time.... Netflix lets you have multiple user for a fee(still cheaper then pandora and it’s freaking movies ) .. just an idea maybe you should drop the price so you can get more people on pandora premium.. and charge a little more for multiple users per account ... and yeah this program crashes all the time I have a iPhone X and it’s really choppy... make the playlist feature more user friendly and a lot more editable.. offline player has a lot of issues when transferring in and out of online and offline .. music some times plays out of the blue when on Bluetooth via car phone ... so yeah the free pandora is mosdeff a 5 star ,premium is a 1 for all the money I’m paying ... thank you for reading ...
My go to! But....

I’ve had Pandora for a very long time and i enjoy how it knows me so well after a decade of listening. There are a few things i would add, such as a driving mode where touch controls are bigger and more pronounced. The upgrade pop up is freakin annoying, but you gotta do what you gotta do, i do suggest maybe a delay when it pops up, because it appears as soon as you wake up your phone and ive hit that banner a million and one times so far when i try to change a station or song. As for the biggest issue right now is pandora when apple maps is open. It completely messes up voice turn by turn and you only get audio prompts which defeats the purpose of eyes on the road. No matter what settings i change in Pandora or maps, no voice turn by turn possible when playing a song. This doesn't happen with any other music app...just saying. Overall great music service and ill update the review as soon as these issue get fixed....running on iPhoneSE....i need to upgrade, i know, but youuu have the money? Exactly, so shut up. Lol jk Love you 😍
What happened
by ThePowerful on 2019/02/01 01:29
I used to love Pandora because it was free music that played all my favorite music and had a wide variety of music from movie soundtracks to music you hear everyday on the radio. But this past year or so Pandora hasn’t been the best. For one it used to have a problem where it would just shut off for no reason at all but that problem seemed to get fix. But now there’s a problem with loading the music, sometimes radio stations won’t load and you’ll either have to play with a couple of other stations and then go back to that one. I understand the concept of liking songs and hearing similar songs like that one you liked but they continuously play the same liked songs all the time. I realized that you’re better off not liking or disliking a song if you want to hear different music. The last thing is the ads. I know that’s how you make your money and a lot of us can’t afford to pay for premium but it’s annoying when you can only listen to 2 songs before an ad pops up. I wish y’all would fix some of these problems
No longer in Denial

I’ve been in denial over the functionality of Pandora for over a year now. After years of free listening with manageable ads I found that the number, frequency and length of ads went up exponentially about a year ago. So I decided to upgrade. Commercial free and offline listening were big selling points to me. However it’s not really commercial free is it? I would have to play an ad to replay a song and sometimes even to skip. And don’t get me started on the offline listening feature. I am a commuter and am often on the subways and I find that not only do I have to have turned on the offline listening option before I’m underground but I only have a selection of maybe a dozen songs in that playlist. If I don’t switch to the offline listening option before I’m out of range there is no offline listening for me at all. Instead I watch as Pandora skips and buffers through dozens of songs as I listen to the complaints of commuters around me. I can’t honestly note a praiseworthy aspect of Pandora right now and since I’ve canceled my subscription I have such a sense of alleviation. I am no longer wasting money or energy over an app that doesn’t work.
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 👌🏼
Terrible app!
by Ashley5330 on 2019/07/30 17:36
I really like Pandora, so I decided to get the premium version. 1. Unfortunately, one of my biggest issues is that the songs stop playing randomly unless I stay in the app with my phone on the whole time. This can get really annoying when you have to keep going back into the app to resume the song. 2. When I put the app in offline mode there are still lots of problems. I’ll be listening to my music while I’m doing something like hw and then it will start playing two songs at once. I can only pause one song and the other one just keeps playing. So, I have to go back in to close the app and wait a few minutes to reopen it and restart my playlist. 3. When I want to add new songs to a playlist i go to turn off offline mode, but then everything freezes! I can’t scroll, edit, or turn offline mode back on. I know that all of these have little fixes but it is such a pain to stop what you’re doing to fix these. Listening to music is supposed to be enjoyable and this just ruins it. I suggest to anyone wanting to get premium not too. I’d take the ads over this any day.
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.
Awesome App But Too Laggy
by _ChillPill_ on 2019/09/24 11:28
This app is fantastic!! I’ve never searched for a song & not found it; and I love how they have albums and podcasts too! Plus it’s free😱🤩 All you have to do is watch a short ad, and then you can listen to about seven or so songs. You also have the option to pay for no ads, which is really great too. My only problem is how laggy it is sometimes. Maybe it’s just my bad internet, but it gets stuck a lot, and I have to close it for a while before I can even click buttons on it. My phone has the latest version so I don’t think my end is the problem 🤷🏼‍♀️ Another Thing is that if you listen to a song, what will play next is a station, and you can get into some junk. There’s a lot of inappropriate songs that come up, I’d definitely say 13+, because you could accidentally get into a song that’s full of cussing. Overall, I listen to Pandora all the time 💙 and I definitely recommend it!
I love Pandora, but I have some concerns
by forkliftcat on 2018/08/01 22:56
I love Pandora, use it almost everyday, and have Pandora Plus. But I have some concerns. One being that quite a bit of songs I like have been made unrepeatable. Another is that they change songs and artists, for example on my station they replaced Avicii’s Wake Me Up with a version done by another artist and now I don’t get Avicii’s version but they still have his version in the app. Thirdly is the seeming lack of variety that I get. There’s been several times where I like a song by an artist and don’t get any other song by them, even though Pandora has more songs from them. I would hope that these get resolved at some point, and would also like it if they added more songs from artists like the plenty of TheFatRat songs there are that aren’t on Pandora. I still love Pandora despite these concerns and will continue to use it, and would recommend Pandora to anybody.
It’s Awesome, And I Recommend It

I had this song stuck in my head from my favorite musician, and when I put pandora on the song I had in my head came on. I mean sure, that was a little creepy but still cool at the same time. I mean, I didn’t have to look it up. But anyway, it has a nice diversity of songs and if you decide to create your own station you can customize it to have your favorite songs- you just need to like the songs first, etc. I have one problem though- Whenever I use an app that has music and stuff, I turn the music and sounds off for that app but I can’t have the song I’m listening to resume. It’s a bit frustrating when this happens- I don’t know if it’s a part of Pandora or if it occurs because of the game I’m playing but it’s really annoying. But what I am trying to say is, is that Pandora is a great app to use if you want to listen to your favorite songs. So I definitely recommend it.
Lots of bugs - can’t play songs and frequently offline
by GBTG1 on 2017/11/09 12:32
My Pandora experience has been getting worse and worse - I’ve been struggling to play songs bc it often freezes on any given song and I can’t play or pause or forward to the next song. (Its frozen right now I’m fact) I have the kill the app and try again. The app also frequently takes me offline when I have good connectivity. I’ve also had a problem where my Pandora will start to randomly play in my pocket. When I go to shut it off I try to pause it from the lock screen of my iPhone, which doesn’t work. I then have to authenticate to get into my phone and navigate to the Pandora app to stop the music. Only the pause button in the Pandora app doesn’t work either (meanwhile the music is still playing loudly). Now I need to kill the app which takes several seconds on the iPhone X. Very poor experience overall. The app doesn’t function properly for what it’s designed for and the random playing in my pocket (when my screen is locked btw with a password) is even more horrible, especially when I’m at work and I can’t turn it off!!! Fix these issues please.
