Too many copy adds tho. Needs a bigger variety
So terrible without premium.
by @WAX_MILSON on 2018/11/17 06:06
I’d be surprised if they didn’t censor this review being as liberal as apple is. Total joke of a music app. If you want to listen to 3-4 adds in a row, download pandora. Any other platform will serve you better.
I’m annoyed with Spotify rn
by For Lin on 2018/11/17 05:57
Spotify is playing so many ads lately. They just keep playing more and more. And their ads are all SO annoying. I downloaded Panera for the first time in six years and I was so happy to discover a music streaming service that doesn’t spam with constant ads. Then I realized I could unlock premium for lil while just by watching a short ad. The only thing is that Spotify makes it easier to find new music and has better playlists. But pandora really stepped up its game.
Nothing more than a rip off. By far the worst music streaming company
by Jonathan W. Weiss on 2018/11/17 05:55
Ive had Pandora for close to 10 years now. The only reason for this is because it is such a complicated process to cancel a subscription these days that id rather spend close to 6$ a month to not have to deal with their half-buttedness than to actually deal with their unsubscription process. Music selection? garbage. Freedom to choose to do what you will with the limited selection they provide is also laughable. Customer service? Pretty much non existent. Chance of finding 2 songs in a row you could actually correlate to each other? You have a better chance of starting a group chat between iphone and android users. Dont waste your time or money on their services, the service you receive in return will leave you with a taste in your mouth comparable to licking steaming roadkill on a summers day in Kentucky. P.s. before you say it. Yes! Ive had their most premium services for most of this time, it is rubbish, trash, garbage, Dont even know how i got downgraded to their $6 service, but thankfully they did, the only service they provide worth the forced 1 star.
Such a great app!!!!

I love pandora, but I found that the same music plays over and over again. I would like to hear a lot more of the 70’s music, they have so many artists from that era, but I will still listen to pandora.....thanks

I love it but problems.
by anon_28 on 2018/11/16 23:46
I LOVE Pandora. I really do. I love the fact I can find new songs on there I like. But I have a problem at the moment. My Pandora isn’t working at the moment. It’ll do the ‘P’ loading thing and then glitch back to my home screen. It’s really annoying and I’ve had to use Musi instead of Pandora which is really annoying because Pandora finds LTE better and faster than Musi does. But other than that I usually love Pandora.

Stops my music every 5 minutes
by Kingeddy707 on 2018/11/16 21:50
Every time I play pandora on my iPad and then switch to iPhone I get an annoying message that stops my music and tells me someone els is playing music in my pandora. Ever since I was limited to listening in only one device I hated pandora I give you till the end of the year to take out the limit before I cancel my account and switch. I have been loyal for many years and now I’m annoyed every time I can’t listen on the car because it’s playing somewhere els. Please fix

Runs in background
by MikeHoncho1971 on 2018/11/16 19:53
No matter what setting this app runs in the background for hours. Even if app is closed and not used for days it still shows and running. Had to delete the app. Disappointing because I really like the app but not worth the extra battery drain.
Pandora
by Cody P21 on 2018/11/16 19:19
5 stars, Pandora is awesome. I had the membership at one point, however the free version is so good there is no point in paying. That probably sounds bad for business, customers saying that, however it’s true. Thanks Pandora for still providing such a great app for music for cheap frugal people such as myself.

Pausing is like restarting the app
by Pleasepause on 2018/11/16 15:49
I listen to Pandora at work and I love the variety of music that it gives me, but being that I usually listen at work, I have to pause my music fairly often. But I HATE that every time i pause my music and then come back to it, the app restarts! So instead of finishing the song I was listening to, it just takes me to a new song. Please fix this so that I can keep listening to the songs that I love at work.

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 is a blessing

A few things that I think need changing
by Rainman9898 on 2018/11/16 10:25
Would have given five stars but I don’t know whether it’s a bug or just a feature. You know that moment you leave the house and you fire up pandora only to find all your offline music has been deleted except for the stations? And now you’re forced to listen to music you didn’t intend to? Yea that happens nearly every two days with me and it’s very annoying. Also I know there’s a reason there’s Spotify and Pandora but I sure hope one day Pandora will emulate Spotify and enable a premium user to log in wherever in the world they are without taking $12 off their account and then telling them it’s not available in your location. I travel outside the country a lot and it’s pretty annoying because money will still be charged to your account despite your location but you can’t listen unless you get a VPN which again just hurts your phone plan and battery life. Another thing, are we ever gonna get an equalizer in the app?

by DragonC5 on 2018/11/16 06:38
They play ads for the free service which is fine, but the bums will cut you off from listening to a specific station using the excuse that the station is currently unavailable. Which is BS because they play the ads to “cover listening for free”. Crooks....
Radio edits
by Jadynn Hunter on 2018/11/16 06:01
I’ve been trying to find a certain song without being radio edited and there’s just nothing. For example I was looking for R U crazy in the original version and they only had it radio edit

by Edoc Semis on 2018/11/16 05:22
There are commercials every other song which is really annoying. What happened to commercials every hour? I also wish it was more filtered. I can’t listen with my kids anymore for fear of a random inappropriate song. I am not impressed. I meant to rate this one star but I accidentally pressed two. I’m switching to Spotify. I think you should to.

Won’t play
by linewifelife on 2018/11/16 04:09
This new update has done something not sure what. I cannot listen to pandora while the app is open but in the background. Once I open another app say I am sending a text message or reading an email it stops playing music and won’t start again until the app is the main app open. Once it starts playing again it restarts the last song it was playing. It gets really annoying when I am streaming in my home and need to answer a text message or in my car and need navigation open.

The one thing removed is something I miss
by chris1111z on 2018/04/28 11:19
When I chose to add an artist specific station it’s almost always to listen to just that artist (maybe with narrow exceptions, Juliana Hatfield is an example (I also Blake Babies, Some Girls and Juliana Hatfield 3 on there, everting else that came up is thumbed down). I MISS the feature that allowed me to choose less variety. I pay $5.34/month to not get ads, but I’m still thumbing down so much that I’m forced to go to the next station or listen to a song I thumbed down, sometimes relatively soon. Why was this great feature removed? It saved me a lot of thumbing down. The most frustrating thing is it’s actively opposing me keeping a station for an artist. It assumes when I thumb down everything but that one artist that I don’t like the station. That’s not true. On Rush radio I’m thumbing down everything that isn’t Rush or Getty Lee’s solo stuff. On Duran Duran radio, its everything but Arcadia and Duran Duran (never did like power station). I hate getting that ‘Error message’ offering to help me browse stations to my liking. I’ve got 90+/- stations on my app, I just want them to be more narrowly focused (except for the few that by definition broad, “1980’s alternative” (for example). I’d love to get a developer’s response here how to tweak it to not having to thumb down so much. On Tove Lo I have an extreme example (over 1,000 thumb downs and thumb up every Tove Lo song they’ve played so far).
What am I paying for??!
by SuziQ86 on 2017/12/01 14:20
This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I am actually being charged for a service that is unusable. I pay monthly for an ad-free Pandora experience. Despite the minor hiccups, I’ve been relatively happy with this app for the past few years. However, with the most recent update, it no longer functions correctly. I have even taken a screencast to show that I’m not crazy or making it up. First, I have to open the app, which automatically freezes. So then I have to swipe out and open again. Then, after a song starts playing, it will suddenly stop like 30 seconds in. Don’t even try connecting to Bluetooth in your car or you’ll be one distracted driver trying to get it play just one song. If I also try to simultaneously use another app, as I have been doing for many years prior, it will now automatically stop playing. What is with these developers who don’t test out the updates before releasing them to the public and losing many LOYAL customers in return?? I am very frustrated and need this issue to be addressed immediately (for a road trip I’m taking) or I will find another radio music app worth my time and money! Ps- My phone and app have all the most recent updates and I have had no other issues with any other app. Previous Review: Love it! I use Pandora every single day. My only gripe is that I wish we could like/dislike songs on the lock screen without having to unlock the phone each time. Other than that, it's a wonderful app that I'm glad to have :-)
I’m with HER
by Gardengirl18 on 2017/12/05 12:48
I always loved this service and before I was a paying customer, I was a regular subscriber since 2007 and I did love it but there are too many problems with it now! It is constantly buffering, it says it’s playing, the meter shows the music is on and it’s in play status but the problem is there’s nothing coming out! There is no communication between what we hear and what the machine says that we’re supposed to hear and I’m saying everything that the previous person reviewed is exactly how I feel and if this does not fix itself soon, I’m Leaving! I had to now delete the app as per Pandora’s help instructions and my stations and everything else has to be redone! Sometimes I put on gospel music from my coworker that I play with her once a week and once it comes on for some unknown reason I cannot get gospel off and it keeps going into my playlist although the station is the selected and I have close the app hit save and hit shuffle and I cannot get rid of it. Maybe that’s Interventional. Previous Review: I'm surprised to see how the music is chosen for variety. I pay for it, but the optional features are very good.i love Todays Comedy Radio station however, I seem to hear the same bits. So I hit skip a lot. Maybe you can add some variety.
A few improvements would make a big difference!
by Mgurumi on 2018/03/03 03:29
I love pandora. It’s about 90% of how I listen to music. I have the Premium subscription too. So I make good use of it. The biggest complaint I have about the premium version, though, is that if I want to look at my stations, I can click the “stations” filter but it won’t give me any sort options. I believe it defaults to recently listened. But I have a LOT of stations. And sometimes I want to find a particular one. It becomes really hard to quickly find something when I haven’t listened to it in a while. If I could sort my stations alphabetically, it would vastly improve the experience. Alphabetical sort is an option on the subscription one level down. Why should I have to downgrade to get what should be a standard feature? It’s backwards. The other thing I wish was an option was the ability to view my subscription details through the app. I do most everything on my phone or tablet through apps. If I want to look at my subscription info, I have to go to the website (the app only shows what kind of account I have). But the mobile (phone web browser version) website just redirects me to the app. So the only way I can see or change or update subscription info is to find a computer to use, which is inconvenient.
Good Content : Fair Loading Reliability
by GSL-SE Guy on 2018/04/11 15:32
Pandora is smart with assuming what music relates to my chosen bands. They are a little narrow in their offerings from any individual band. For example, if choose a “station” called Supertramp I heat Supertramp’s greatest hits over and over again, which is fine, but if I choose a station based on a specific band, it is safe to assume I like more than just their most popular songs. I should hear their entire catalog. If I choose a genre-based station it is okay to play just hits from various bands in that genre, but if I pick a specific band, Pandora should be smart enough to realize I want everything from that band, not just their hit songs. I also have a frequent connectivity issue. I live in a rural area where it is not uncommon to lose cellular coverage and subsequently my Pandora feed. No problem, I understand this is unavoidable. The problem is that when I regain cellular connectivity Pandora often will not reboot. About half the time I have to turn my phone completely off to get Pandora to restart. This is not safe when I am driving so I either have to pull over or live without Pandora until I get to my destination. I have an iPhone 6s with Apple CarPlay in my vehicle. I love Pandora except for these two issues. Thanks, Mike Kingsley
Love Pandora
by DJaneA on 2018/03/09 09:04
I listen to Ryan Farish radio on Pandora Plus everyday. So relaxing. It has become an addiction. I connect it to my car audio via Bluetooth on the iPhone app and play it on Roku TV while reading, surfing the net and relaxing. I listen to Pandora more than I watch TV. It has a great selection of new age/trance instrumental artists like Ryan Farish (of course), 7 and 5, and Deosil. It throws in some classical, soft jazz, and EDM for variety. Even my bunny likes it! I tried Premium but went back down to Plus. I don’t skip much because it plays most of the music I like that has a thumbs up. I also just like to listen to the music randomly. Most of the songs and artists I like most, could not be replayed or added to playlist on Premium anyways due to licensing. Which is ridiculous considering you’re paying the extra money that should cover this. Another downside is the replay/back button won’t work in the car. I can skip forward using the car’s track button on the steering wheel, but back to replay the song won’t work, especially if the song cannot be replayed because of licensing. I also found the Premium app too confusing. Other than that, love this music. Could listen to it forever.
Crap for free and doesn’t get better with premium
by JordynKLow on 2017/11/05 07:48
Constantly goes offline when I have plenty of service. Now it won’t play the songs on my playlists. I select a song and it chooses a random song from the same playlist. I have premium yet your licensing restrictions require that a lot of the songs I like require to be listened to on the radio part of the app. What’s the point of paying for premium? I’d rather deal with ads. I listen to this app while I’m driving and now with our distracted driving laws in my state this app makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to get it working if it starts wigging out on me. The offline playlists literally play crap music and only play like four songs. When you go back into service it chooses a playlist for you instead of resuming what you had going in the first place. This app is a total waste of money for premium and a total waste of time and effort for commuters without premium. Like if I want to listen to a song over, sure I will listen to an ad but don’t prompt me 7 times about premium before letting me rewind like seriously how am I supposed to listen and drive when the app is asking you 20 freaking questions. Stop making things more of an effort than they need to be. The other day I selected a song and it started randomly playing other songs on that playlist but then immediately choosing another and another and so on. My songs were on a literal shuffle. Get your life together pandora.
Pandora’ Disclaimer
by CrystalNWilliams on 2018/09/23 14:51
Allow me start off with how much I utilize Pandora. I have had a Pandora account for at least 8 years. But recently I have purchased the Pandora Premium account. I loved the idea of downloading music to listen to later and I have my own personal music list. I loved the idea of the “Offline” feature as well. But recently I have ran into a few issues. 1 of them being when I switch the offline due to being in an airplane... it only allows me to listen to SOME of the songs even though I have downloaded them. When I go to click on the song it states that it is not allowed for playbacks. 🧐 Sooooo... why was able to download it if I can’t replay it?? 2. Then I was listening to my songs with WiFi and it was telling me that I can’t listen to the songs because they are not allowed for playbacks... so no matter what.... you allowed me to feel like I was given the opportunity to have the song on my playlist BUT I can’t listen to it?? 3. You are able to listen to a lot of songs. You can search for a lot of songs. You can discover new songs.... but you can NOT download a lot of these songs... so my conclusion is... deal with the lack of skips, commercials and keep the free option because it’s not worth what they charge. Very disappointing.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Needs updating
by Beccajean89 on 2018/08/10 22:51
I love pandora. I usually have it playing most the day every day. There are just a couple things I wish they would change- 1) when you thumbs down a song, I wish they would give you the option of thumbs downing the song OR thumbs downing the artist. Because in all honesty, I'm not thrilled with having Taylor Swift and Pink pop up and play songs on my CCR and Purple Lace stations. 2) can they give us the option of deleting the variety added on stations? I added a variety song to my station because I really liked the song, but then it completely changed the chemistry of the station and now I'm getting some seriously weird and unrelated stuff on there. And deleting the station and making a new one to restart doesn't work. [[EDIT- I don't know if it was an update or my blind eyes finally noticing, but I can now edit my stations! Thanks Pandora! You just earned an extra star. 😉]] Other than that, there isn't much that I don't like about pandora. They've got some great songs that are great for the stations I've created. And I love that they give me the option of earning some replays and skips. I would give them 5 stars if they could change those two options from above.
Shaka! 2 da Pan do Ra!!!
by IsamuraiZ2sly on 2018/04/22 14:25
Ive moved over, or supposedly up 2 the great I Phone status. Mostly because of an offer and my daughter needed one. But i admit its much better than the ones i had prior. But as expected they cater or offer apps namely music apps of their benefit. I sort of stayed away from the P dora not wanting to feel like a traitor. But somehow your app popped up, and being fm Hawaii. I just gotta have some island/ jawaiian style MsiK! Where the opposite of Orange mSk aPp was clueless and kept showin me empty searches. Dora like the cartoon girl, always lookin for answers n solutions does. Has the MsiK i need like mY psychological/mental fix. U even had all the muSik i had right where me left them. So where Apple has its benefits it offers its customers, which is actually nice. And i see your app has become a little lesss freer. Oh wells. Capitalism. Makes the true potential of man a sick cripple. Its also the pace car that got us here. Kinda drive the donkey gorward, funny that word came out Al Goreward. Or more honestly. Downward. But thank you from a Hawaiian muSik addict. Haha, cuzz i luvs me some local vibes. And it just started playin my Fav Song just about, of all my Life. Safe and Sound - Rebellution.

Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Awesome songs/tunes, good variety and cool artists!
by Julesrules14 on 2018/07/02 17:20
I love pandora. Been a subscriber and a patron and customer/user for the longest time. Used it since I have heard of it coming out. I got tired of YouTube’s, every other song commercials. So I came to use Pandora an oldie but goodie. Always the best do and will survive. I love the fact that I don’t have to skip commercials and that there are not that many. The music and songs are always playing. I don’t have to wait for a song, no buffering, skipping songs is easy. But why would I want to. There is awesome sound quality, the stations/mixes are excellent. The choices of songs from the playlists are remarkable. I approve of all of them. There isn’t one that I don’t like. I am constantly hitting the 👍. Adding bookmarks, creating stations, sharing, and much more. What else can I say. There isn’t much that I couldn’t not say except no videos. So I have nothing but good things to say "terrific app, incredible and hot hits, lovable songs, bands from all eras and genres. Enjoy the app, I know I am! You will too, I just know it once you try it, just listen, turn up the tunes, start to groove. Kick it! Julia
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
Pandora Music ... where words fail Music Speaks
by Buckeye Smile on 2017/11/10 10:16
Since discovering Pandora listening I have found great joy in listening. Music is uplifting, I am able to choose genre that matches my feelings and mood at certain times of the day or Simply to get me going, it energized me! I have used Pandora to soothe my grandchildren when rocking them to sleep or entertain them while playing. I have used it while sitting with gravely I’ll family in Hospice, I have used it when visiting elderly friends playing music that was popular during their era. I have used it to comfort me , rather than relying on pills to help me fall asleep I Listen to music... I enjoy listening to music while working in my flower beds or sitting on my patio. When I don’t want complete silence I fill it with music. Music is like a good friend... it’s always there for me anytime, anywhere. I prefer listening to music rather than watching TV where there is so much trash and negativity that is depressing. Music lifts my spirit, it’s like visiting a counselor but without the high cost... it speaks to me through its words and melodies 🎼🎶🎹🎺🎷🎻so Thank you Pandora🎧🎶
"Premium" upgrade removes key feature
by EricMLarson on 2017/10/14 21:37
For some reason I got some kind of "demo" of Pandora Premium, which is great except for the total loss of the "I'm tired of this track" feature. "But you get unlimited skips! Why would you need that?" Because it's vital to how Pandora actually works: giving a song a thumbs-up defines the kind of music you want to hear on a station, but you might not want to hear that exact song all the time. So the best way to build a Pandora station is to thumb-up all the songs that have the right kind of sound for you, but then put them on the "shelf" if Pandora starts to play them too often. But that feature has apparently been removed from Premium (and Support won't answer me, or tell me how to get out of this demo/trial that I don't want). My only options are to skip the annoying songs every single time they keep coming up... or bookmark them for future reference before giving them a thumbs-down, and mess up the kinds of music that Pandora is going to put into the station until I manually put them back a few weeks later. Their help files don't warn you of this but if you read carefully you'll see that the "Premium" help is in a different category and it doesn't mention the "I'm tired of this track" feature that's described under the regular iOS app help. Beware.
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
It Used to Work
by WhoReleasedThisCr*p on 2017/11/02 02:23
Pandora used to be my go-to music app. I was introduced to artists I never knew existed because they were similar to what I already enjoyed. When I got a new car with SYNC3, Pandora was rock solid. I could move from house to car and back without missing a beat. But several months ago, Pandora started having problems. When I get in the car, especially when using CarPlay, there’s no better than a 10% chance that I’ll be able to open Pandora, select a playlist and actually hear music. Most of the time it will give me a list of my playlists, but selecting a playlist just snaps back and does nothing no matter how many times I select it. Sometimes the app on the phone tells me “Poor network connection”, or its stuck asking me to start a free trial, or there’s a “Skip to Pandora” button. But you know what’s not there? Music! My home wi-fi is unchanged. There are no new cell towers. I have at least three bars. There is no reason why I can’t do today what I did for months without any problems, and that’s listen to music. So I have deleted the app and reinstalled twice. If I have to delete again, there won’t be another installation. And that’s sad because an app that once brought me so much good music and introduced me to so many artists, now brings only daily frustration.
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!
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Random music of the World
by Bobsyruncle56 on 2018/10/04 02:50
New revision . PANDORA seems to have a positive opening for Smaller Label ; TED artist release of MANY Artist not available to the general public thru DavidByrne world music . EVERY EAR WILL BE LISTENING AT THE “Austin City Limits” , debut , not as a Headliner , but as an < exemplary > artist that many have not the time to ‘ actually Listen to the Lyrics> of their time on Earth.!! Yes . You will actually be making your families life better .. or just following the herd. !! You are NOW in control of your World : Listen too it or let life revolve around you . Listen to the French Horn , Liberty , Bobsyruncle. !!? love Pandora's diversity of music choices, however, am frustrated when it stops ( w/o warning ) in the Radiology suite, as patient's are listening to a Christmas genre. Is this a bandwidth - use issue. I have 5 bars of service ,and have even switched to internet to listen , only to have to select a single artist. If you RECOMMEND it, have the scalability to handle the volume, or don't recommend !! I was forced to turn on Spotify-not what paying customers should fall back on !
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!

I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
It’s the little things
by vnfectvous on 2018/09/15 01:17
I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)

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

Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
Used to be awesome but then...
by AceKing42 on 2017/10/12 18:52
I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
I love it!
by Jesus Loves You 123 on 2017/11/15 13:46
I’ve used it for 3 years and it keeps getting better. Minus the commercials between songs that kills my vibe it’s great. I also get annoyed by only have a few song skips. I mean there’s a lot of songs I like and a lot I don’t like, so I like to thumbs them down and skip. But when I run out of song skips then I’m forced to listen to music I hate... so I usually get off the app then. It would be nice if when you both thumbed it down and skipped the song then the skip wouldn’t count. To me it’s different to hate a song and skip it then to just casually not be in the mood for a song that you like but just don’t want to listen to, so you skip it. But anyways, other than those two things it’s overall a great app! It has some great songs that I just have to download to my phone after finding out about them. It always has the newest and oldest of songs of every genre.👍🏼 I can say if you download it you won’t regret it.
Lots of bugs - can’t play songs and frequently offline
by GBTG1 on 2017/11/09 12:32
My Pandora experience has been getting worse and worse - I’ve been struggling to play songs bc it often freezes on any given song and I can’t play or pause or forward to the next song. (Its frozen right now I’m fact) I have the kill the app and try again. The app also frequently takes me offline when I have good connectivity. I’ve also had a problem where my Pandora will start to randomly play in my pocket. When I go to shut it off I try to pause it from the lock screen of my iPhone, which doesn’t work. I then have to authenticate to get into my phone and navigate to the Pandora app to stop the music. Only the pause button in the Pandora app doesn’t work either (meanwhile the music is still playing loudly). Now I need to kill the app which takes several seconds on the iPhone X. Very poor experience overall. The app doesn’t function properly for what it’s designed for and the random playing in my pocket (when my screen is locked btw with a password) is even more horrible, especially when I’m at work and I can’t turn it off!!! Fix these issues please.
Positive New Life Thanks to Pandora
by Tricia Tobias on 2017/09/24 21:05
Pandora was introduced to me as I was in one of the worst turmoils of my life. God will never give you more than you can handle they say..... But it was only because of Pandora that I survived!! Simply having the ability to allow the perfect song at the perfect time come through the tiny iPhone speaker was priceless. Forced to quit my successful job of 13 years to stay at home to take care of our 3 daughters..... After years of mental, emotional, financial and then physical abuse I was relieved when I came home and all my husbands clothes and belongings were gone...... it was a difficult divorce but Because of Pandora I was able to overcome the Obstacles, the Crushing barriers that would otherwise make someone give up or loose hope and become cold towards life and existence..... Thank You Pandora and all the musicians and audio industry for saving me and my 3 young daughters Lives Forever!! Thank you!!💖Tricia Tobias
Where’s the quality control gone? Do thumbs and seeds even matter anymore?!
by matt70lock on 2018/07/23 03:26
It feels as though pandora has degraded to a point quality control wise that thumbs and seeds no longer mean anything. Every day I start up Pandora to the same tiny handful of my most recent thumbs upped tracks the older thumbs upped tracks have either vanished or are buried deep beneath a pile of unrelated garbage that has taken over all of my channels. I have tracks I thumbed up that I haven’t heard in MONTHS, but on the same station it will try to play the same random artist I just thumbs downed 3 tracks in a row for.... I have also noticed on my comedy stations an influx of “intro” tracks that contain 0 material and end when the comic starts talking, tracks that sound like they were recorded underwater, and even tracks that are 1/3rd outro music... so I have to ask, where is the quality control? Do our thumbs even matter when there is so much random crap being poured into our channels? We need a super thumbs down that thumbs down an entire artist at this point because it’s getting tiresome having to thumbs down endless tracks from the same person because pandora just doesn’t take a hint
Need a update
by fuufgigc on 2018/10/04 19:26
It won’t let me make a picture or video when it the music is Playing and it is so annoying also I wish that I could Ask me if I wanted it to go to a different song like it I don’t now I don’t mean it would interrupt you right in the middle of the song saying would you like to go to another song OK so what I mean is at the end of it I it tells you if you want to go to another song no I have another update you could like for example I could tell the phone if I wanted to go to a different song so I would say when asked me do you want to go to another song I was at yes or no like it’s in it’s a yes or no or no question so I would respond with yes or no and that’s pretty much all and lots and overall the rest of it is awesome but 00 and I don’t think you should watch an ad to like be able to search something that’s like so stupid why would you guys do that And now the rest of it’s good and please do the updates that I told you or else I will give you another bad report and only one star this time and that time
Needs an update for modern devices
by Josh modern tech geek on 2018/01/05 23:11
Pandora needs an update for a stand alone app compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular. If I lose Bluetooth connection with my actual phone pandora will not work because it uses the app on my phone although I have the add on installed my watch. The point of having cellular on the Apple Watch is if you are out of range on Bluetooth with your phone you can still text, call, email etc from the watch. Would be nice to enjoy my pandora premium out on a walk with the dog without my phone and using my AirPods or out for a jog. iTunes does support a stand alone app for the watch so you can listen to music through AirPods without connection to your phone. Another benefit I would get here would be the usage of battery using pandora on my watch vs phone. I get home from a long day of work and my watch is at 80% and my phone is at 20% and that is off and on wireless charging all day. One of my coworkers opted for the iTunes unlimited subscription and I’m getting jealous for sure...
This app has gone to junk...
by Spyrow424 on 2018/09/17 19:09
EDIT: A bit better, however, handoff to Apple Car Play doesn’t work when starting up the car. Every time it just says “connecting” on the Apple Car Play device but never gets past startup. Even with full internet connection. Won’t start unless you unlock phone, go to the app and play from the phone directly. IDK if it’s iOS 11 or my new Watch3 but this app has gone to garbage. It doesn’t allow controls from a 3rd device via BT when the watch is present, like my car stereo! Dangerous! Also it constantly locks out the controls on my iPhone. Again DANGEROUS! It constantly keeps playing even when I press stop and the pause symbol shows. Watch app is constantly “looking for stations” even when it’s been playing for a while. Pandora also borks when going from WiFi to cellular data even in 100% 4G LTE market. I used to be a subscriber. Now I know better. They are just trying to cash out now that they’re not on top anymore. Shame on you devs. No one should give you another dime.
Needs Improvement
by Wally Nelson on 2018/01/26 16:12
I’ve used Pandora loyally for 6 years now but I’m considering switching to a new platform. 7 months ago I signed up for Pandora Premium and have had little problems with Pandora as an app ever since. It crashes more often then before and my downloaded playlists don’t work have the time. If given the option to download a playlist I made I want to be able to listen to it offline but every time I click play it says that it’s unavailable. I find it hard to believe that of the 50 or so songs that I have in my playlist are all unavailable for playback because of licensing issues. Also on that same subject the playlist does work once, and that is the immediately after I download it but a couple hours later I get squat. The Help section of the app is not nearly as useful as I would like. I would like the option to send the developers a message letting them know something is wrong but no option. I love Pandora and it’s a great service but Premium isn’t worth the money.
Great app, just could use some tweaks
by John (in) Denver on 2018/01/10 20:55
Pandora is one of my favorite apps. I listen to it almost daily. Nearly daily, however, it suffers little issues that frustrate me. Examples: The thumbs up/down feature is cool, but crude and its true functionality is in clear. Consider: A song comes on that I like, but it’s a live version. I hate listening to live versions of songs. So is that a thumbs up or down? Lately, if I have been listening for a while and my phone has gone into sleep mode (not sure that is the proper term), I’ll open the phone again and the pause/play button will be locked. The phone isn’t locked. Other controls work, but I can’t stop/start the music without starting a different station. Very frustrating. One more: I started a new station by picking a band (Alabama). Sure enough, first song was a live version of a mediocre song. I skipped the song. The next few songs that came up were non-Alabama songs I liked - songs I would like on an Alabama station. Thumbs up. No more Alabama songs. I quickly stopped thumbing up, then started skipping. Finally, I thumbed down some songs I actually liked. After an hour of music, Pandora had only played three crappy Alabama songs or crappy versions of good Alabama songs. I quit the station and deleted it. Next day I tried again and had a much better, but not great experience with a new Alabama station. Wonderful, magical, but sometimes very confusing.
Love Pandora, but screen lag causes almost accidental purchases
by roshanda123 on 2018/06/22 14:44
iPhone 6. I love pandora, the only complaint I have is that I do not pay for Pandora Premium and sometimes I feel as if I’m almost tricked into Pandora charging me for premium. At random times the screen will dim and ask if I want to pay for premium or a ‘No Thanks’ option will appear under the ‘Free Trial’ option. Almost every time I go to click ‘No thanks’ the screen reloads (not sure what to call it) and the ‘Free Trial’ button moves to where ‘No Thanks’ was. This is happening as I’m clicking ‘No Thanks’ and Pandora registers that I want to start premium and my iPhone pulls up the purchase confirmation screen. If I had auto-pay set up i would have never known that pandora reloaded the screen and began charging me for premium until I see the charge on my account. Other than that small inconvenience, great app & music variety.

So terrible without premium.
by @WAX_MILSON on 2018/11/17 06:06
I’d be surprised if they didn’t censor this review being as liberal as apple is. Total joke of a music app. If you want to listen to 3-4 adds in a row, download pandora. Any other platform will serve you better.
I’m annoyed with Spotify rn
by For Lin on 2018/11/17 05:57
Spotify is playing so many ads lately. They just keep playing more and more. And their ads are all SO annoying. I downloaded Panera for the first time in six years and I was so happy to discover a music streaming service that doesn’t spam with constant ads. Then I realized I could unlock premium for lil while just by watching a short ad. The only thing is that Spotify makes it easier to find new music and has better playlists. But pandora really stepped up its game.
Nothing more than a rip off. By far the worst music streaming company
by Jonathan W. Weiss on 2018/11/17 05:55
Ive had Pandora for close to 10 years now. The only reason for this is because it is such a complicated process to cancel a subscription these days that id rather spend close to 6$ a month to not have to deal with their half-buttedness than to actually deal with their unsubscription process. Music selection? garbage. Freedom to choose to do what you will with the limited selection they provide is also laughable. Customer service? Pretty much non existent. Chance of finding 2 songs in a row you could actually correlate to each other? You have a better chance of starting a group chat between iphone and android users. Dont waste your time or money on their services, the service you receive in return will leave you with a taste in your mouth comparable to licking steaming roadkill on a summers day in Kentucky. P.s. before you say it. Yes! Ive had their most premium services for most of this time, it is rubbish, trash, garbage, Dont even know how i got downgraded to their $6 service, but thankfully they did, the only service they provide worth the forced 1 star.
Such a great app!!!!
by Anna☮️🌊 on 2018/11/17 05:52
I love Pandora; they have a wide selection of music. It’s great.

I love pandora, but I found that the same music plays over and over again. I would like to hear a lot more of the 70’s music, they have so many artists from that era, but I will still listen to pandora.....thanks

I love it but problems.
by anon_28 on 2018/11/16 23:46
I LOVE Pandora. I really do. I love the fact I can find new songs on there I like. But I have a problem at the moment. My Pandora isn’t working at the moment. It’ll do the ‘P’ loading thing and then glitch back to my home screen. It’s really annoying and I’ve had to use Musi instead of Pandora which is really annoying because Pandora finds LTE better and faster than Musi does. But other than that I usually love Pandora.

Stops my music every 5 minutes
by Kingeddy707 on 2018/11/16 21:50
Every time I play pandora on my iPad and then switch to iPhone I get an annoying message that stops my music and tells me someone els is playing music in my pandora. Ever since I was limited to listening in only one device I hated pandora I give you till the end of the year to take out the limit before I cancel my account and switch. I have been loyal for many years and now I’m annoyed every time I can’t listen on the car because it’s playing somewhere els. Please fix

Runs in background
by MikeHoncho1971 on 2018/11/16 19:53
No matter what setting this app runs in the background for hours. Even if app is closed and not used for days it still shows and running. Had to delete the app. Disappointing because I really like the app but not worth the extra battery drain.
Pandora
by Cody P21 on 2018/11/16 19:19
5 stars, Pandora is awesome. I had the membership at one point, however the free version is so good there is no point in paying. That probably sounds bad for business, customers saying that, however it’s true. Thanks Pandora for still providing such a great app for music for cheap frugal people such as myself.

Pausing is like restarting the app
by Pleasepause on 2018/11/16 15:49
I listen to Pandora at work and I love the variety of music that it gives me, but being that I usually listen at work, I have to pause my music fairly often. But I HATE that every time i pause my music and then come back to it, the app restarts! So instead of finishing the song I was listening to, it just takes me to a new song. Please fix this so that I can keep listening to the songs that I love at work.

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.

A few things that I think need changing
by Rainman9898 on 2018/11/16 10:25
Would have given five stars but I don’t know whether it’s a bug or just a feature. You know that moment you leave the house and you fire up pandora only to find all your offline music has been deleted except for the stations? And now you’re forced to listen to music you didn’t intend to? Yea that happens nearly every two days with me and it’s very annoying. Also I know there’s a reason there’s Spotify and Pandora but I sure hope one day Pandora will emulate Spotify and enable a premium user to log in wherever in the world they are without taking $12 off their account and then telling them it’s not available in your location. I travel outside the country a lot and it’s pretty annoying because money will still be charged to your account despite your location but you can’t listen unless you get a VPN which again just hurts your phone plan and battery life. Another thing, are we ever gonna get an equalizer in the app?

by DragonC5 on 2018/11/16 06:38
They play ads for the free service which is fine, but the bums will cut you off from listening to a specific station using the excuse that the station is currently unavailable. Which is BS because they play the ads to “cover listening for free”. Crooks....
Radio edits
by Jadynn Hunter on 2018/11/16 06:01

There are commercials every other song which is really annoying. What happened to commercials every hour? I also wish it was more filtered. I can’t listen with my kids anymore for fear of a random inappropriate song. I am not impressed. I meant to rate this one star but I accidentally pressed two. I’m switching to Spotify. I think you should to.

Won’t play
by linewifelife on 2018/11/16 04:09
This new update has done something not sure what. I cannot listen to pandora while the app is open but in the background. Once I open another app say I am sending a text message or reading an email it stops playing music and won’t start again until the app is the main app open. Once it starts playing again it restarts the last song it was playing. It gets really annoying when I am streaming in my home and need to answer a text message or in my car and need navigation open.

The one thing removed is something I miss
by chris1111z on 2018/04/28 11:19
When I chose to add an artist specific station it’s almost always to listen to just that artist (maybe with narrow exceptions, Juliana Hatfield is an example (I also Blake Babies, Some Girls and Juliana Hatfield 3 on there, everting else that came up is thumbed down). I MISS the feature that allowed me to choose less variety. I pay $5.34/month to not get ads, but I’m still thumbing down so much that I’m forced to go to the next station or listen to a song I thumbed down, sometimes relatively soon. Why was this great feature removed? It saved me a lot of thumbing down. The most frustrating thing is it’s actively opposing me keeping a station for an artist. It assumes when I thumb down everything but that one artist that I don’t like the station. That’s not true. On Rush radio I’m thumbing down everything that isn’t Rush or Getty Lee’s solo stuff. On Duran Duran radio, its everything but Arcadia and Duran Duran (never did like power station). I hate getting that ‘Error message’ offering to help me browse stations to my liking. I’ve got 90+/- stations on my app, I just want them to be more narrowly focused (except for the few that by definition broad, “1980’s alternative” (for example). I’d love to get a developer’s response here how to tweak it to not having to thumb down so much. On Tove Lo I have an extreme example (over 1,000 thumb downs and thumb up every Tove Lo song they’ve played so far).
What am I paying for??!
by SuziQ86 on 2017/12/01 14:20
This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I am actually being charged for a service that is unusable. I pay monthly for an ad-free Pandora experience. Despite the minor hiccups, I’ve been relatively happy with this app for the past few years. However, with the most recent update, it no longer functions correctly. I have even taken a screencast to show that I’m not crazy or making it up. First, I have to open the app, which automatically freezes. So then I have to swipe out and open again. Then, after a song starts playing, it will suddenly stop like 30 seconds in. Don’t even try connecting to Bluetooth in your car or you’ll be one distracted driver trying to get it play just one song. If I also try to simultaneously use another app, as I have been doing for many years prior, it will now automatically stop playing. What is with these developers who don’t test out the updates before releasing them to the public and losing many LOYAL customers in return?? I am very frustrated and need this issue to be addressed immediately (for a road trip I’m taking) or I will find another radio music app worth my time and money! Ps- My phone and app have all the most recent updates and I have had no other issues with any other app. Previous Review: Love it! I use Pandora every single day. My only gripe is that I wish we could like/dislike songs on the lock screen without having to unlock the phone each time. Other than that, it's a wonderful app that I'm glad to have :-)
I’m with HER
by Gardengirl18 on 2017/12/05 12:48
I always loved this service and before I was a paying customer, I was a regular subscriber since 2007 and I did love it but there are too many problems with it now! It is constantly buffering, it says it’s playing, the meter shows the music is on and it’s in play status but the problem is there’s nothing coming out! There is no communication between what we hear and what the machine says that we’re supposed to hear and I’m saying everything that the previous person reviewed is exactly how I feel and if this does not fix itself soon, I’m Leaving! I had to now delete the app as per Pandora’s help instructions and my stations and everything else has to be redone! Sometimes I put on gospel music from my coworker that I play with her once a week and once it comes on for some unknown reason I cannot get gospel off and it keeps going into my playlist although the station is the selected and I have close the app hit save and hit shuffle and I cannot get rid of it. Maybe that’s Interventional. Previous Review: I'm surprised to see how the music is chosen for variety. I pay for it, but the optional features are very good.i love Todays Comedy Radio station however, I seem to hear the same bits. So I hit skip a lot. Maybe you can add some variety.
A few improvements would make a big difference!
by Mgurumi on 2018/03/03 03:29
I love pandora. It’s about 90% of how I listen to music. I have the Premium subscription too. So I make good use of it. The biggest complaint I have about the premium version, though, is that if I want to look at my stations, I can click the “stations” filter but it won’t give me any sort options. I believe it defaults to recently listened. But I have a LOT of stations. And sometimes I want to find a particular one. It becomes really hard to quickly find something when I haven’t listened to it in a while. If I could sort my stations alphabetically, it would vastly improve the experience. Alphabetical sort is an option on the subscription one level down. Why should I have to downgrade to get what should be a standard feature? It’s backwards. The other thing I wish was an option was the ability to view my subscription details through the app. I do most everything on my phone or tablet through apps. If I want to look at my subscription info, I have to go to the website (the app only shows what kind of account I have). But the mobile (phone web browser version) website just redirects me to the app. So the only way I can see or change or update subscription info is to find a computer to use, which is inconvenient.
Good Content : Fair Loading Reliability
by GSL-SE Guy on 2018/04/11 15:32
Pandora is smart with assuming what music relates to my chosen bands. They are a little narrow in their offerings from any individual band. For example, if choose a “station” called Supertramp I heat Supertramp’s greatest hits over and over again, which is fine, but if I choose a station based on a specific band, it is safe to assume I like more than just their most popular songs. I should hear their entire catalog. If I choose a genre-based station it is okay to play just hits from various bands in that genre, but if I pick a specific band, Pandora should be smart enough to realize I want everything from that band, not just their hit songs. I also have a frequent connectivity issue. I live in a rural area where it is not uncommon to lose cellular coverage and subsequently my Pandora feed. No problem, I understand this is unavoidable. The problem is that when I regain cellular connectivity Pandora often will not reboot. About half the time I have to turn my phone completely off to get Pandora to restart. This is not safe when I am driving so I either have to pull over or live without Pandora until I get to my destination. I have an iPhone 6s with Apple CarPlay in my vehicle. I love Pandora except for these two issues. Thanks, Mike Kingsley
Love Pandora
by DJaneA on 2018/03/09 09:04
I listen to Ryan Farish radio on Pandora Plus everyday. So relaxing. It has become an addiction. I connect it to my car audio via Bluetooth on the iPhone app and play it on Roku TV while reading, surfing the net and relaxing. I listen to Pandora more than I watch TV. It has a great selection of new age/trance instrumental artists like Ryan Farish (of course), 7 and 5, and Deosil. It throws in some classical, soft jazz, and EDM for variety. Even my bunny likes it! I tried Premium but went back down to Plus. I don’t skip much because it plays most of the music I like that has a thumbs up. I also just like to listen to the music randomly. Most of the songs and artists I like most, could not be replayed or added to playlist on Premium anyways due to licensing. Which is ridiculous considering you’re paying the extra money that should cover this. Another downside is the replay/back button won’t work in the car. I can skip forward using the car’s track button on the steering wheel, but back to replay the song won’t work, especially if the song cannot be replayed because of licensing. I also found the Premium app too confusing. Other than that, love this music. Could listen to it forever.
Crap for free and doesn’t get better with premium
by JordynKLow on 2017/11/05 07:48
Constantly goes offline when I have plenty of service. Now it won’t play the songs on my playlists. I select a song and it chooses a random song from the same playlist. I have premium yet your licensing restrictions require that a lot of the songs I like require to be listened to on the radio part of the app. What’s the point of paying for premium? I’d rather deal with ads. I listen to this app while I’m driving and now with our distracted driving laws in my state this app makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to get it working if it starts wigging out on me. The offline playlists literally play crap music and only play like four songs. When you go back into service it chooses a playlist for you instead of resuming what you had going in the first place. This app is a total waste of money for premium and a total waste of time and effort for commuters without premium. Like if I want to listen to a song over, sure I will listen to an ad but don’t prompt me 7 times about premium before letting me rewind like seriously how am I supposed to listen and drive when the app is asking you 20 freaking questions. Stop making things more of an effort than they need to be. The other day I selected a song and it started randomly playing other songs on that playlist but then immediately choosing another and another and so on. My songs were on a literal shuffle. Get your life together pandora.
Pandora’ Disclaimer
by CrystalNWilliams on 2018/09/23 14:51
Allow me start off with how much I utilize Pandora. I have had a Pandora account for at least 8 years. But recently I have purchased the Pandora Premium account. I loved the idea of downloading music to listen to later and I have my own personal music list. I loved the idea of the “Offline” feature as well. But recently I have ran into a few issues. 1 of them being when I switch the offline due to being in an airplane... it only allows me to listen to SOME of the songs even though I have downloaded them. When I go to click on the song it states that it is not allowed for playbacks. 🧐 Sooooo... why was able to download it if I can’t replay it?? 2. Then I was listening to my songs with WiFi and it was telling me that I can’t listen to the songs because they are not allowed for playbacks... so no matter what.... you allowed me to feel like I was given the opportunity to have the song on my playlist BUT I can’t listen to it?? 3. You are able to listen to a lot of songs. You can search for a lot of songs. You can discover new songs.... but you can NOT download a lot of these songs... so my conclusion is... deal with the lack of skips, commercials and keep the free option because it’s not worth what they charge. Very disappointing.
Two stars for what Pandora once was...
by pv15 on 2017/12/04 01:18
I’ve been a fairly long time user of Pandora One. The poor performance of this app is almost making me consider leaving them for online radio. First and foremost, here recently the app has been real garbage. Every time I open it it’s either wanting me to sign into Facebook, or sign up for the higher Pandora service. To me that’s a bit insulting as a person that already pays for Pandora One. There aren’t supposed to be ads, and I certainly don’t want to sign into Facebook on Pandora. Here recently it’s been terrible about audio playback too. For example, the other day if I’d switch to another app or if my phone would go to sleep Pandora would quit playing music. An uninstall and reinstall of the app did fix this. Another issue I’ve been having is sometime I’ll get a notification from another app, the music volume turns down for said notification, but then it doesn’t turn the music back up after, making me close the app and reopen it. One other complaint I have is if I pause the music, the app sometimes just plain seems to forget once I hit play if I spent too long on pause. In order to get music to play again I have to go and reopen the Pandora app. Often times whatever song I was enjoying is no longer there. Really discontent with the quality here recently.
Needs updating

I love pandora. I usually have it playing most the day every day. There are just a couple things I wish they would change- 1) when you thumbs down a song, I wish they would give you the option of thumbs downing the song OR thumbs downing the artist. Because in all honesty, I'm not thrilled with having Taylor Swift and Pink pop up and play songs on my CCR and Purple Lace stations. 2) can they give us the option of deleting the variety added on stations? I added a variety song to my station because I really liked the song, but then it completely changed the chemistry of the station and now I'm getting some seriously weird and unrelated stuff on there. And deleting the station and making a new one to restart doesn't work. [[EDIT- I don't know if it was an update or my blind eyes finally noticing, but I can now edit my stations! Thanks Pandora! You just earned an extra star. 😉]] Other than that, there isn't much that I don't like about pandora. They've got some great songs that are great for the stations I've created. And I love that they give me the option of earning some replays and skips. I would give them 5 stars if they could change those two options from above.
Shaka! 2 da Pan do Ra!!!

Ive moved over, or supposedly up 2 the great I Phone status. Mostly because of an offer and my daughter needed one. But i admit its much better than the ones i had prior. But as expected they cater or offer apps namely music apps of their benefit. I sort of stayed away from the P dora not wanting to feel like a traitor. But somehow your app popped up, and being fm Hawaii. I just gotta have some island/ jawaiian style MsiK! Where the opposite of Orange mSk aPp was clueless and kept showin me empty searches. Dora like the cartoon girl, always lookin for answers n solutions does. Has the MsiK i need like mY psychological/mental fix. U even had all the muSik i had right where me left them. So where Apple has its benefits it offers its customers, which is actually nice. And i see your app has become a little lesss freer. Oh wells. Capitalism. Makes the true potential of man a sick cripple. Its also the pace car that got us here. Kinda drive the donkey gorward, funny that word came out Al Goreward. Or more honestly. Downward. But thank you from a Hawaiian muSik addict. Haha, cuzz i luvs me some local vibes. And it just started playin my Fav Song just about, of all my Life. Safe and Sound - Rebellution.

Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Awesome songs/tunes, good variety and cool artists!
by Julesrules14 on 2018/07/02 17:20
I love pandora. Been a subscriber and a patron and customer/user for the longest time. Used it since I have heard of it coming out. I got tired of YouTube’s, every other song commercials. So I came to use Pandora an oldie but goodie. Always the best do and will survive. I love the fact that I don’t have to skip commercials and that there are not that many. The music and songs are always playing. I don’t have to wait for a song, no buffering, skipping songs is easy. But why would I want to. There is awesome sound quality, the stations/mixes are excellent. The choices of songs from the playlists are remarkable. I approve of all of them. There isn’t one that I don’t like. I am constantly hitting the 👍. Adding bookmarks, creating stations, sharing, and much more. What else can I say. There isn’t much that I couldn’t not say except no videos. So I have nothing but good things to say "terrific app, incredible and hot hits, lovable songs, bands from all eras and genres. Enjoy the app, I know I am! You will too, I just know it once you try it, just listen, turn up the tunes, start to groove. Kick it! Julia
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
Pandora Music ... where words fail Music Speaks
by Buckeye Smile on 2017/11/10 10:16
Since discovering Pandora listening I have found great joy in listening. Music is uplifting, I am able to choose genre that matches my feelings and mood at certain times of the day or Simply to get me going, it energized me! I have used Pandora to soothe my grandchildren when rocking them to sleep or entertain them while playing. I have used it while sitting with gravely I’ll family in Hospice, I have used it when visiting elderly friends playing music that was popular during their era. I have used it to comfort me , rather than relying on pills to help me fall asleep I Listen to music... I enjoy listening to music while working in my flower beds or sitting on my patio. When I don’t want complete silence I fill it with music. Music is like a good friend... it’s always there for me anytime, anywhere. I prefer listening to music rather than watching TV where there is so much trash and negativity that is depressing. Music lifts my spirit, it’s like visiting a counselor but without the high cost... it speaks to me through its words and melodies 🎼🎶🎹🎺🎷🎻so Thank you Pandora🎧🎶
"Premium" upgrade removes key feature
by EricMLarson on 2017/10/14 21:37
For some reason I got some kind of "demo" of Pandora Premium, which is great except for the total loss of the "I'm tired of this track" feature. "But you get unlimited skips! Why would you need that?" Because it's vital to how Pandora actually works: giving a song a thumbs-up defines the kind of music you want to hear on a station, but you might not want to hear that exact song all the time. So the best way to build a Pandora station is to thumb-up all the songs that have the right kind of sound for you, but then put them on the "shelf" if Pandora starts to play them too often. But that feature has apparently been removed from Premium (and Support won't answer me, or tell me how to get out of this demo/trial that I don't want). My only options are to skip the annoying songs every single time they keep coming up... or bookmark them for future reference before giving them a thumbs-down, and mess up the kinds of music that Pandora is going to put into the station until I manually put them back a few weeks later. Their help files don't warn you of this but if you read carefully you'll see that the "Premium" help is in a different category and it doesn't mention the "I'm tired of this track" feature that's described under the regular iOS app help. Beware.
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
It Used to Work
by WhoReleasedThisCr*p on 2017/11/02 02:23
Pandora used to be my go-to music app. I was introduced to artists I never knew existed because they were similar to what I already enjoyed. When I got a new car with SYNC3, Pandora was rock solid. I could move from house to car and back without missing a beat. But several months ago, Pandora started having problems. When I get in the car, especially when using CarPlay, there’s no better than a 10% chance that I’ll be able to open Pandora, select a playlist and actually hear music. Most of the time it will give me a list of my playlists, but selecting a playlist just snaps back and does nothing no matter how many times I select it. Sometimes the app on the phone tells me “Poor network connection”, or its stuck asking me to start a free trial, or there’s a “Skip to Pandora” button. But you know what’s not there? Music! My home wi-fi is unchanged. There are no new cell towers. I have at least three bars. There is no reason why I can’t do today what I did for months without any problems, and that’s listen to music. So I have deleted the app and reinstalled twice. If I have to delete again, there won’t be another installation. And that’s sad because an app that once brought me so much good music and introduced me to so many artists, now brings only daily frustration.
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!
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Random music of the World
by Bobsyruncle56 on 2018/10/04 02:50
New revision . PANDORA seems to have a positive opening for Smaller Label ; TED artist release of MANY Artist not available to the general public thru DavidByrne world music . EVERY EAR WILL BE LISTENING AT THE “Austin City Limits” , debut , not as a Headliner , but as an < exemplary > artist that many have not the time to ‘ actually Listen to the Lyrics> of their time on Earth.!! Yes . You will actually be making your families life better .. or just following the herd. !! You are NOW in control of your World : Listen too it or let life revolve around you . Listen to the French Horn , Liberty , Bobsyruncle. !!? love Pandora's diversity of music choices, however, am frustrated when it stops ( w/o warning ) in the Radiology suite, as patient's are listening to a Christmas genre. Is this a bandwidth - use issue. I have 5 bars of service ,and have even switched to internet to listen , only to have to select a single artist. If you RECOMMEND it, have the scalability to handle the volume, or don't recommend !! I was forced to turn on Spotify-not what paying customers should fall back on !
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
It’s the little things
by vnfectvous on 2018/09/15 01:17
I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)

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

Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
Used to be awesome but then...

I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
I love it!

I’ve used it for 3 years and it keeps getting better. Minus the commercials between songs that kills my vibe it’s great. I also get annoyed by only have a few song skips. I mean there’s a lot of songs I like and a lot I don’t like, so I like to thumbs them down and skip. But when I run out of song skips then I’m forced to listen to music I hate... so I usually get off the app then. It would be nice if when you both thumbed it down and skipped the song then the skip wouldn’t count. To me it’s different to hate a song and skip it then to just casually not be in the mood for a song that you like but just don’t want to listen to, so you skip it. But anyways, other than those two things it’s overall a great app! It has some great songs that I just have to download to my phone after finding out about them. It always has the newest and oldest of songs of every genre.👍🏼 I can say if you download it you won’t regret it.
Lots of bugs - can’t play songs and frequently offline
by GBTG1 on 2017/11/09 12:32
My Pandora experience has been getting worse and worse - I’ve been struggling to play songs bc it often freezes on any given song and I can’t play or pause or forward to the next song. (Its frozen right now I’m fact) I have the kill the app and try again. The app also frequently takes me offline when I have good connectivity. I’ve also had a problem where my Pandora will start to randomly play in my pocket. When I go to shut it off I try to pause it from the lock screen of my iPhone, which doesn’t work. I then have to authenticate to get into my phone and navigate to the Pandora app to stop the music. Only the pause button in the Pandora app doesn’t work either (meanwhile the music is still playing loudly). Now I need to kill the app which takes several seconds on the iPhone X. Very poor experience overall. The app doesn’t function properly for what it’s designed for and the random playing in my pocket (when my screen is locked btw with a password) is even more horrible, especially when I’m at work and I can’t turn it off!!! Fix these issues please.
Positive New Life Thanks to Pandora
by Tricia Tobias on 2017/09/24 21:05
Pandora was introduced to me as I was in one of the worst turmoils of my life. God will never give you more than you can handle they say..... But it was only because of Pandora that I survived!! Simply having the ability to allow the perfect song at the perfect time come through the tiny iPhone speaker was priceless. Forced to quit my successful job of 13 years to stay at home to take care of our 3 daughters..... After years of mental, emotional, financial and then physical abuse I was relieved when I came home and all my husbands clothes and belongings were gone...... it was a difficult divorce but Because of Pandora I was able to overcome the Obstacles, the Crushing barriers that would otherwise make someone give up or loose hope and become cold towards life and existence..... Thank You Pandora and all the musicians and audio industry for saving me and my 3 young daughters Lives Forever!! Thank you!!💖Tricia Tobias
Where’s the quality control gone? Do thumbs and seeds even matter anymore?!
by matt70lock on 2018/07/23 03:26
It feels as though pandora has degraded to a point quality control wise that thumbs and seeds no longer mean anything. Every day I start up Pandora to the same tiny handful of my most recent thumbs upped tracks the older thumbs upped tracks have either vanished or are buried deep beneath a pile of unrelated garbage that has taken over all of my channels. I have tracks I thumbed up that I haven’t heard in MONTHS, but on the same station it will try to play the same random artist I just thumbs downed 3 tracks in a row for.... I have also noticed on my comedy stations an influx of “intro” tracks that contain 0 material and end when the comic starts talking, tracks that sound like they were recorded underwater, and even tracks that are 1/3rd outro music... so I have to ask, where is the quality control? Do our thumbs even matter when there is so much random crap being poured into our channels? We need a super thumbs down that thumbs down an entire artist at this point because it’s getting tiresome having to thumbs down endless tracks from the same person because pandora just doesn’t take a hint
Need a update
by fuufgigc on 2018/10/04 19:26
It won’t let me make a picture or video when it the music is Playing and it is so annoying also I wish that I could Ask me if I wanted it to go to a different song like it I don’t now I don’t mean it would interrupt you right in the middle of the song saying would you like to go to another song OK so what I mean is at the end of it I it tells you if you want to go to another song no I have another update you could like for example I could tell the phone if I wanted to go to a different song so I would say when asked me do you want to go to another song I was at yes or no like it’s in it’s a yes or no or no question so I would respond with yes or no and that’s pretty much all and lots and overall the rest of it is awesome but 00 and I don’t think you should watch an ad to like be able to search something that’s like so stupid why would you guys do that And now the rest of it’s good and please do the updates that I told you or else I will give you another bad report and only one star this time and that time
Needs an update for modern devices
by Josh modern tech geek on 2018/01/05 23:11
Pandora needs an update for a stand alone app compatible with the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular. If I lose Bluetooth connection with my actual phone pandora will not work because it uses the app on my phone although I have the add on installed my watch. The point of having cellular on the Apple Watch is if you are out of range on Bluetooth with your phone you can still text, call, email etc from the watch. Would be nice to enjoy my pandora premium out on a walk with the dog without my phone and using my AirPods or out for a jog. iTunes does support a stand alone app for the watch so you can listen to music through AirPods without connection to your phone. Another benefit I would get here would be the usage of battery using pandora on my watch vs phone. I get home from a long day of work and my watch is at 80% and my phone is at 20% and that is off and on wireless charging all day. One of my coworkers opted for the iTunes unlimited subscription and I’m getting jealous for sure...
This app has gone to junk...
by Spyrow424 on 2018/09/17 19:09
EDIT: A bit better, however, handoff to Apple Car Play doesn’t work when starting up the car. Every time it just says “connecting” on the Apple Car Play device but never gets past startup. Even with full internet connection. Won’t start unless you unlock phone, go to the app and play from the phone directly. IDK if it’s iOS 11 or my new Watch3 but this app has gone to garbage. It doesn’t allow controls from a 3rd device via BT when the watch is present, like my car stereo! Dangerous! Also it constantly locks out the controls on my iPhone. Again DANGEROUS! It constantly keeps playing even when I press stop and the pause symbol shows. Watch app is constantly “looking for stations” even when it’s been playing for a while. Pandora also borks when going from WiFi to cellular data even in 100% 4G LTE market. I used to be a subscriber. Now I know better. They are just trying to cash out now that they’re not on top anymore. Shame on you devs. No one should give you another dime.
Needs Improvement
by Wally Nelson on 2018/01/26 16:12
I’ve used Pandora loyally for 6 years now but I’m considering switching to a new platform. 7 months ago I signed up for Pandora Premium and have had little problems with Pandora as an app ever since. It crashes more often then before and my downloaded playlists don’t work have the time. If given the option to download a playlist I made I want to be able to listen to it offline but every time I click play it says that it’s unavailable. I find it hard to believe that of the 50 or so songs that I have in my playlist are all unavailable for playback because of licensing issues. Also on that same subject the playlist does work once, and that is the immediately after I download it but a couple hours later I get squat. The Help section of the app is not nearly as useful as I would like. I would like the option to send the developers a message letting them know something is wrong but no option. I love Pandora and it’s a great service but Premium isn’t worth the money.
Great app, just could use some tweaks
by John (in) Denver on 2018/01/10 20:55
Pandora is one of my favorite apps. I listen to it almost daily. Nearly daily, however, it suffers little issues that frustrate me. Examples: The thumbs up/down feature is cool, but crude and its true functionality is in clear. Consider: A song comes on that I like, but it’s a live version. I hate listening to live versions of songs. So is that a thumbs up or down? Lately, if I have been listening for a while and my phone has gone into sleep mode (not sure that is the proper term), I’ll open the phone again and the pause/play button will be locked. The phone isn’t locked. Other controls work, but I can’t stop/start the music without starting a different station. Very frustrating. One more: I started a new station by picking a band (Alabama). Sure enough, first song was a live version of a mediocre song. I skipped the song. The next few songs that came up were non-Alabama songs I liked - songs I would like on an Alabama station. Thumbs up. No more Alabama songs. I quickly stopped thumbing up, then started skipping. Finally, I thumbed down some songs I actually liked. After an hour of music, Pandora had only played three crappy Alabama songs or crappy versions of good Alabama songs. I quit the station and deleted it. Next day I tried again and had a much better, but not great experience with a new Alabama station. Wonderful, magical, but sometimes very confusing.
Love Pandora, but screen lag causes almost accidental purchases
by roshanda123 on 2018/06/22 14:44
iPhone 6. I love pandora, the only complaint I have is that I do not pay for Pandora Premium and sometimes I feel as if I’m almost tricked into Pandora charging me for premium. At random times the screen will dim and ask if I want to pay for premium or a ‘No Thanks’ option will appear under the ‘Free Trial’ option. Almost every time I go to click ‘No thanks’ the screen reloads (not sure what to call it) and the ‘Free Trial’ button moves to where ‘No Thanks’ was. This is happening as I’m clicking ‘No Thanks’ and Pandora registers that I want to start premium and my iPhone pulls up the purchase confirmation screen. If I had auto-pay set up i would have never known that pandora reloaded the screen and began charging me for premium until I see the charge on my account. Other than that small inconvenience, great app & music variety.
