I love pandora, there’s nothing left to say!!!
Over priced crap service
by DarthWook on 2018/12/12 01:29
The only way to use this app while exercising is to channel surf...now that Pandora locks you into listening to an entire song (or skip with limited availability)...why bother. Try harder. Or not 🤷🏻‍♂️
L❤️VE PANDORA!

I love the variety! Pandora GETS me and that’s awesome. Great eclectic mix!!
Amazed Great Job Pandora

I enjoy every time I get the privilege to use Pandora. Thanks for the great music provide for us. Thanks and your being part of my Family . Bring much happiness thanks Rvch.
Doubled their price for crappier service
by La Sra Doubtfire on 2018/12/12 00:14
Why am I now paying $60 instead of $30 one year ago only to get fewer perks and hounded to death about upgrading to “Premium” for $156 a year? You have to be kidding me. This is why the competition is winning, Pandora. Will be canceling soon. See ya.

What happened
by Jburpy on 2018/12/11 23:30
Since the update all my songs only play PG versions. Do I need to change something in my settings? It still shows that I allow explicit.
Censorship
by BrandonJ96 on 2018/12/11 23:27
Need to stop playing the censored versions of music. Unappealing make clean stations instead for kids if that your goal.
Not working
by rachel102301 on 2018/12/11 23:19
The new update isn’t working at all. I tried turning on and off my phone, and deleting the app and relog in. It’s not working at all
Pandora is great
by Videogamer0$ on 2018/12/11 23:16
Pandora is great it plays good music ,glad to use it and it’s great for parties
Good but could be better!
by Yvonne9396 on 2018/12/11 23:01
Should be able to listen to whatever we want to listen too for free besides listening off line which is understandable! However it would make the Pandora experience legit 😁
Maintenance

What a joke
by AshDrex91 on 2018/12/11 22:31
Anytime there is an update it seems like the app gets worse and worse. I had to delete it and reinstall to try to get it to load anything, so of course it logged me out of my account. I’m trying to log back in and it claims all my password attempts are wrong, which they aren’t. So then I’m like alright let’s do a password reset, it keeps failing to send me an email. It simply says “sorry unable to send reset email” um hello? Is my account that I PAY for just gone? It won’t let me log in or do anything. I tried to make a new account under the same email just to see if it would go through to ensure I am in fact using the right log in email and it gives me an error. I don’t understand why you guys do updates that just cause more bugs. This service isn’t worth any money being thrown its way for ad free music. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this issue.
Pretty good
by Boardgamefriend on 2018/12/11 22:30
The only reason I have pandora and not YouTube music is that I can’t be trusted to not go into YouTube comments sections and type profanities against trump morons. Pandora is ok, but I had to delete it and reload it because it got caught in a buffering problem.

I had been using this app but is been crashing a lot. It doesn’t play the play list. At first I thought it was the internet connection, but I notes that anywhere is slow and it doesn’t play. Hopefully you guys can fix it.
Whenever it decides to work
by meganjosquin on 2018/12/11 22:21
Annoying that the app will just not work half of the time. I’ve done all the updates, restarted my phone, restarted the app 100 times...no luck. Guess it’s time to get Spotify
Great except...
by Dissapointed>.< on 2018/12/11 22:19
1.) ads every seven minutes 2.) I can’t afford to upgrade 3.) there’s currently a glitch that has for whatever reason decided it’s going to just downright stop working so I have to delete the app and start all over again #3 happened to me just now and it’s forgotten my account, and when I try to click on “forgot password?” It won’t send to my account. FIX THIS.
Love pandora but update lastnite is trash on my phone
by COADA on 2018/12/11 22:18
This update has screwed the app up bad on my iPhone XS Max. Been fine til now. Please fix !!!
Love pandora
by shelb1357 on 2018/12/11 22:17
I read through some comments about how bad pandora is and the adds and it’s insane how people don’t appreciate that pandora is FREE. I’ve had no problems with watching a few adds for like 30sec. I don’t have premium, just regular downloaded pandora and it is amazing, 100% of the time I listen to music is using pandora, and I’m a person who likes that u mix up songs and I like hearing the different variety of songs. Recently tho I discovered a problem and I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but it won’t let me play music and says buffing all the time, and ik I have service/WiFi. So if there’s some way to fix that, it would be greatly appreciated because pandora is like my main source of music, definitely recommend it tho.
My app
by truckgirl21 on 2018/12/11 22:17
My Pandora app hasn’t been working ever since the new update. This is frustrating because I use this app so much. I’m also paying money for this to have the best music and for it not to work is very upsetting.
Update to useless
by Noneofthismatters on 2018/12/11 22:17
For a company that has released 25 updates to this app over the past 8 months they can’t seem to make it just work. Only functions sporadically and freezes MOST of the time. Why do I pay for a subscription to silence??
Freezing and repetitive
by edvanro on 2018/12/11 22:15
When it works it just repeats the same songs over and over and there is no variety in the station you’re listening to. Like to the point where it starts out with the same song every time you click on a certain station, for me anyways. And lately it’s just been frozen and I can’t listen to anything, even after the update
sorry your account could not load
by Evat281 on 2018/12/11 22:12
getting tired of seeing this message. i even tried to delete the app and load it again. it’s not a connection issue, it’s a pandora piece of crap issue. all of my other apps are loading fine. not even worth the $5/month if there’s loading issues.
Buggy in the latest update 😩
by Kellygrrl2 on 2018/12/11 22:11
Latest update is fun! Every time a song ends the next song won’t start! Yay! Acts like the song is still playing, you can thumb up and down and press “pause” but there’s nothing playing! Close the app, re-open and NOTHING! I hope this bug is fixed soon! I guess I’ll be downloading the competition
Stuck!
by Healthy gram on 2018/12/11 22:09
I was listening to Steve Tyrell Christmas music and in the middle of the song Pandora STOPPED!! What the heck is going on? I tried to swipe forward, then changed the channel I was listening to, even shut it down and to start everything all over. There is no way I’ll ever pay for prime when you can’t even use the regular (and listening to ads)!! Guess I’ll just go back to using my music on my phone, at least it’s reliable and won’t STOP playing 🤷🏼‍♀️
Garbage.
by deadbat13 on 2018/12/11 22:08
I haven’t been able to play anything on my app all day. I turned my phone off, deleted and redownloaded, went on WiFi... nothing. And now that I’ve downloaded it again, NOTHING shows up. Blank. White. No stations, nothing. And when I try to log out of my blank nothingness, it tells me that my account settings could not be loaded. So glad I’m paying for this 😒
Bye bye premium pandora

My pandora has not been working on my phone for 3 days now and it’s getting annoying to listen to the regular radio that doesn’t play any songs I like 🙃
Removing support for Mac
by C5555555555555 on 2018/12/11 22:04
Was suggested by Pandora support to buy a windows 10 PC instead. Complete disgrace.
Newest update fails to load
by Elbert H on 2018/12/11 22:04
Most recent update fails to load. Reinstalled and rebooted device. Will not load successfully.
Rarely works, when does commercials surely play loud
by Sundaeluv on 2018/12/11 22:03
So inconsistent, music wont play half the time and when it does the songs are not like the ones I chose the channel for! Example Pink Martini Holiday channel, it did once when I created but ever since NEVER plays Pink Martini! Everything but including songs/instrumentals/music stles that dont even sound like holiday music or anything like Pink Martini. Geesh. A better more reliable option is TuneIn radio or Jango or YouTube even.
Newest version crashes
by Lilapeels on 2018/12/11 22:00
Even after reinstalling it doesn’t work or load account.
Terrible
by hajdoebsbckd on 2018/12/11 21:59
This app used to be good for all day listening but lately it’s just god awful. It’ll work great for hours but when I take a phone call and try to go back to it, it never works right, always says buffering. No matter how many different channels I try or close it and reopen it. Just going to use amazon music for good. You guys ruined something so good and simple!
Not working
by ffgujnbggjnfg on 2018/12/11 21:59
With each update it works less. Constantly down on the phone and doesn’t work well with Alexa anymore.
Downgraded again...
by 21SAR42 on 2018/12/11 21:58
To a 1. This app is now totally useless. It played well for awhile but now It doesn’t play in the car at all. It stopped playing completely to the point where I get a blank screen on my app. My husband has a Samsung and never has issues. This has to be an issue with the Apple phones?
New update
by TheBane Ojeda on 2018/12/11 21:57
I just did the update has no sound on iphone xs max fix it ASAP !!
JUST NO
by This_User-Name_Is-Taken on 2018/12/11 21:56
This is the least efficient app I’ve ever used, it’s so glitchy and unreliable. I tried all the “reboot” options but that got nowhere. You can skip out on paying, but you’re paying you’re time when you need to reboot and listen to mindless ads.
Disappointed
by jahahahahahahahahaoskdldlshs s on 2018/12/11 21:56
I pay the 5 a month for unlimited skips and it seems like the free pandora works way better. I keep having issues! I don’t understand why it’s telling me to connect to WiFi when I have the option to play offline since it’s part of paying the $5 a month. Not happy with this.

by D Balds on 2018/12/11 21:56

Lately it’s been having a lot of problems. On Pandora premium it won’t download anything, it played 3 songs at once, it’s just been having a lot of problems. Please fix it.
Will not play only buffers
by sclucifer on 2018/12/11 21:52
I have paid for the premium and it will not play anything it will only buffer. Even when I have full signal or WiFi connected. The help support on the app is useless. Really not happy for the money I have been paying. Time to cancel and switch to Apple Music.
Terrible
by Mygotbebo on 2018/12/11 21:51
Freezes requiring you to reinstall the program. Constantly saying something went wrong try again later and being Locked out of your favorite station for hours. Overall frustrating garbage

Was great now it won’t even load one song with full lte signal.
I love this but...
by Big and UPSET on 2018/12/11 21:49
I’ve been a fan because it’s rather effortless to play similar genre(s) and artists without the tediousness of other applications. However, today as I was listening to my Beatles station, I was given ONE Beatles song, then a completely off-genre song, I skipped maybe 30 songs, still no Beatles lol. I turn to my Guns N’ Roses station and Beatles plays immediately. Kinda annoying, well actually really annoying. :/ Might just move to Spotify. EDIT: deleted the app. Wouldn’t play any music from my channels. Garbage. I cannot believe I actually invested in this app. Waste of money anymore.
Won't load
by MarioFreak1997 on 2018/12/11 21:48
I tried to load up Pandora like normal and it won't pull anything up. I checked it on my boyfriend's phone too and it isn't working
Ughhh
by funkwitch on 2018/12/11 21:48
This app only works about half of the time. You’ll open the app, pick out a station, one song will play and then it just gets stuck! I’ll try switching to a different station and it won’t load a song. I’ve waited for ten minutes, updated app, deleted it and re-downloaded it. This has happened on several different occasions and it does the same thing on my friends phones as well. So if you want a music app where the whole point of the app is to press play and NOT have to mess with it again, don’t download pandora. If you want a music app that actually plays music, use AppleMusic. Thank you and good day.

Issues with Connectivity
by _d_a_7 on 2018/12/11 21:45
I’ve been having a lot of trouble with the app randomly cutting off or crashing without warning. It will freeze even when I’m on WiFi at home while my other music service apps will work perfectly fine. It also has issues when playing over Bluetooth devices - it will pause mid song. I really wanted to like this service and was willing to make the switch, but I’m frustrated by this issue.
Recent Update
by mary1030 on 2018/12/11 21:45
I love Pandora, but with this recent update the app keeps crashing and it’s driving me crazy! Plus, I pay monthly and it’s not like I’m going to get a discount for the app crashing..please have it fixed! 😩
Crashing/ not doing anything
by Fiveohstang13 on 2018/12/11 21:44
App crashes most of the time or when I open it the first time it doesn’t play when I’m clearly connected to WiFi with full bars for both that and cell coverage. This problem has been going on a little over a year. I thought it was my phone... bought a new one, thought it was my cell service... bout a new plan with Verizon.... the app is still complete garbage and doesn’t play when I transition from WiFi to cell data or if I simply have both like right now I can play the app.... screen comes up shows the last song and doesn’t do anything..... complete garbage. Please fix your app as I am already trying new ones in the mean time just in case
Sucking now
by SJPhil on 2018/12/11 21:44
Pandora, fix your app!!!!! All of the sudden I can’t load pandora on my iPhone.
Freezes and fails ALOT
by Dannyshsbsksl on 2018/12/11 21:44
Don’t pay for this service it’s trash. Since I’ve paid for the premium service (a few months ago) I’ve had to delete and re download countless times and it freezes literally every day can’t even stream for long before it freezes and I have to close the app out or delete entirely and re download. Again don’t waste your time paying for the premium service there is better streaming services and more reliable.
Updated, Now Doesn’t Work
by Robert0628 on 2018/12/11 21:43

Issues with last update...
by airsep57 on 2018/12/11 21:41
Please fix!!! 1. Pandora has trouble connecting to the vehicle app. 2. When it does connect and the song changes it disconnects about 10 seconds and then reconnects... This has happened before and you took a while to fix... please fix ASAP
Not worth it

It buffers a lot. Otherwise it’s ok. Also repeating same songs.
This crashes
by Jcdgvxzchbcsxg on 2018/12/11 21:39
You all need to update this app as soon as possible because it makes no sense to pay for it every month and use the free version just for it to crash every time. It’s sad. Fix this please

Bug fixes
by NateSherman1 on 2018/12/11 20:18
I love this app, it’s my go to app on the go. However when you guys do big fixes on the app can you please stop fixing songs that are explicit cause when it says explicit on a songs like 2pac, Snoop Dogg or Biggie Smalls etc and it’s not explicit it’s not cool to listen to the song when you already like it cause the song is not explicit it makes the song not likable.
I love listening to pandora
by ms.Lady Tee on 2018/12/11 19:54
I truly love listening to pandora I listen to my gospel music all day and night I really don’t think I could live without being able to listen to it. I thank you all who came up with pandora may god bless and keep you all from this day and forward. Again thanks from the bottom of my heart.
Love Pandora!
by DarkPalidin on 2018/12/11 19:46
Plays the music I like and finds great music I had not heard before!
Time consuming in a good way
by MajestaV on 2018/12/11 19:28
I’m always so bored and music is the only thing that keeps me entertained.I tried Spotify but I find it more confusing and pandora is just so simple in my opinion plus I get super inpatient.And it could be my earbuds or the app itself but I love the quality/sound and I just think the app is a good music app 🙂
Great Music !
by JoeDBrp on 2018/12/11 19:23
Pandora has great music - from stations that I create! As long as I have internet, I have my favorite sounds - you can't beat that! Thanx Pandora
I’d rather pay for YouTube
by AgonizedCash565 on 2018/12/11 19:17
It takes forever to load one song, I go on YouTube and search up the same song and I get it almost instantly besides an advertisement that happens once then I get no ads for 2 hours
It’s changed
by catagoon on 2018/12/11 19:12
I don’t understand the double ads Also just way more ads in general but hey it’s pandora I’ve been using it for years pretty good variety.
Loved it but the Updates took that away...
by Cristyav on 2018/12/11 19:08
Pandora nooo don’t do that! The update took many of the words out from the songs. No it’s not a good remix. The songs should have original words not some DJ thing on my songs? I’m way old enough to make sure I have manners and not use curse words around professionally. I’ve always listened to Pandora but might need to go to another app to enjoy the original versions. Come on Pandora..

Music Standstill?
by joshton_66 on 2018/12/11 18:36
I just downloaded Pandora onto a new device so it is the latest update so I have never any problems until now. I don’t know why but whenever I leave a station and go back to it minutes later, the same song is still playing or has started over. It is happening with every station, I don’t know if this part of the update or the app is just acting. It is still a decent listening app but this kills me if I have to keep pressing skip.
why won't the song I click play
by drusilla.d on 2018/12/11 18:25
it either won't play the song or it just starts playing something completely different wth

i LOVE pandora. i’m one of those who is team pandora instead of spotify. but i had to cancel my premium because all of a sudden i can’t listen to music after about a minute after exiting the app!! i’m heartbroken and i really hope they fix this so i can start using it again. i love pandora but i can’t pay $13/month for something that i literally cannot use
Enjoying the music!!!

STOP WITH THE RADIO EDITS REPLACING EXPLICIT WHEN I HAVE EXPLICIT CONTENT ENABLED
by matt70lock on 2018/12/11 16:33
Ok, seriously, what is the point of turning the slider for explicit content on? I thumbs upped the original explicit track and now it’s somehow been replaced with some bs radio edit?! No. I didn’t thumbs up a radio edit, my explicit slider has ALWAYS been set to allow explicit content because several songs I enjoy have explicit lyrics. I don’t appreciate pandora coming in and forcing bs radio edits on me, if I wanted to here the blanked out version I’d listen to the regular radio. Common sense says if I wanted to hear the radio edit instead of the explicit I’d have searched and thumbs upped the radio edit. No, the explicit played, and I thumbed up the explicit, don’t switch what I thumbs upped to a bs radio edit, and if you do change my thumbs up to the explicit version because that’s the version I originally thumbs upped

I was initially so excited at the possibilities until I realized that they were more limited than I thought. I’m a 57 year old Caucasian woman that listens to almost every genre except country. I find your world music selection limited as well as classical music and ecclesiastical. When I look up Greek Orthodox chants, Russian Orthodox chants come up which are not always in a Byzantine style. It would be great to be able to tempo match, match by subject matter, pick the song order, blend one into another and pick by century or decade of each style when I looked for a thanksgiving playlist all I found was some fifties crooners Jazz. What I would have liked to find was songs about being thankful and fall spanning multiple decades as my guests had a seventy year gap that blended into each other seemlessly . The only advantage to Pandora prime is the lack of commercials. What I would like to see is a more expansive selection with a simplified djing ability. I would also like your premise playlists to be more carefully curated and not a sloppy bunch of disconnected songs. PLEASE when I click that I like a song don’t assume I want a playlist made by you containing a hindustani raga mixed with hypercrush and the thrice holy hymn. Whatever logarithm you use to pick does not make the cut. Each month I want to drop the service but feel bad that I will lose my lists. How can I get a job with you?
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 Pandora..BUT!!
by TheGirlGamer202 on 2018/12/02 17:04
Not really enjoying the new update too well.. I mean yes pandora is the best app and I’ve used it for years!! But the new update just makes it a little frustrating because whenever you are listening to the station and go into another one the song plays but then when you’ve gone through all of them and go back to the previous station it just plays the song over and after you play the song for a few seconds it resumes when you go back to that station... overall I love the app but it’s kinda frustrating to have this happen... I miss just going into a station and just having it continue the song even when I don’t have that particular station active. But I hope that you guys can fix this issue and so that I can be satisfied with it again. Thanks for taking the time to read this review sorry it’s kinda long but I’m just trying to get this frustrating issue fixed ASAP... thanks!!! (Ps i agree about the fact that we should be able to like/dislike the songs when you turn the phone on so that we wouldn’t have to unlock the phone every time!!!!) thanks again Hope everyone gets their issues fixed as well as my own!!!!!!!
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

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)

by Verito Rose on 2017/10/01 17:49
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 !
by 2chichi on 2018/09/19 04:36
Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
Meh
by Sparky3860 on 2018/11/16 11:26
I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.
Used to be awesome but then...
by AceKing42 on 2017/10/12 18:52
I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
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
There are important things to be fixed.. like content filtering
by siisdhdbb on 2018/09/10 11:44
Pandora’s explicit content filter does NOT work. I’ve had my explicit content on since I downloaded the app and continue to hear f-word, a-word, and much more. If the f-word isn’t a curse word or explicit, what is?? There is literally no difference with or without the filter. I hear trashy songs and they won’t even play the proper clean version of the song with this filter. FIX THIS or I am deleting the app and going to search for something else with an actual explicit filter that works. Also, in the middle of the song it starts buffering for no reason. This has happened to other people I know as well, even with reliable WiFi/data. And the same song will start and stop a couple times with LONG pauses during the song of silence and buffering for no reason. Please fix these things and then you’ll keep me. And I’m more than happy to spread the word to many people I know, with and without kids, that the explicit filter does not work, so don’t get Pandora. Please fix that issue ASAP.
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.

Over priced crap service
by DarthWook on 2018/12/12 01:29
The only way to use this app while exercising is to channel surf...now that Pandora locks you into listening to an entire song (or skip with limited availability)...why bother. Try harder. Or not 🤷🏻‍♂️
L❤️VE PANDORA!

Doubled their price for crappier service
by La Sra Doubtfire on 2018/12/12 00:14
Why am I now paying $60 instead of $30 one year ago only to get fewer perks and hounded to death about upgrading to “Premium” for $156 a year? You have to be kidding me. This is why the competition is winning, Pandora. Will be canceling soon. See ya.

What happened
by Jburpy on 2018/12/11 23:30
Since the update all my songs only play PG versions. Do I need to change something in my settings? It still shows that I allow explicit.
Censorship
by BrandonJ96 on 2018/12/11 23:27
Need to stop playing the censored versions of music. Unappealing make clean stations instead for kids if that your goal.
Not working
by rachel102301 on 2018/12/11 23:19
The new update isn’t working at all. I tried turning on and off my phone, and deleting the app and relog in. It’s not working at all
Pandora is great
by Videogamer0$ on 2018/12/11 23:16
Pandora is great it plays good music ,glad to use it and it’s great for parties
Good but could be better!
by Yvonne9396 on 2018/12/11 23:01
Should be able to listen to whatever we want to listen too for free besides listening off line which is understandable! However it would make the Pandora experience legit 😁
Maintenance

What a joke
by AshDrex91 on 2018/12/11 22:31
Anytime there is an update it seems like the app gets worse and worse. I had to delete it and reinstall to try to get it to load anything, so of course it logged me out of my account. I’m trying to log back in and it claims all my password attempts are wrong, which they aren’t. So then I’m like alright let’s do a password reset, it keeps failing to send me an email. It simply says “sorry unable to send reset email” um hello? Is my account that I PAY for just gone? It won’t let me log in or do anything. I tried to make a new account under the same email just to see if it would go through to ensure I am in fact using the right log in email and it gives me an error. I don’t understand why you guys do updates that just cause more bugs. This service isn’t worth any money being thrown its way for ad free music. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this issue.
Pretty good
by Boardgamefriend on 2018/12/11 22:30
The only reason I have pandora and not YouTube music is that I can’t be trusted to not go into YouTube comments sections and type profanities against trump morons. Pandora is ok, but I had to delete it and reload it because it got caught in a buffering problem.

I had been using this app but is been crashing a lot. It doesn’t play the play list. At first I thought it was the internet connection, but I notes that anywhere is slow and it doesn’t play. Hopefully you guys can fix it.
Whenever it decides to work
by meganjosquin on 2018/12/11 22:21
Annoying that the app will just not work half of the time. I’ve done all the updates, restarted my phone, restarted the app 100 times...no luck. Guess it’s time to get Spotify
Great except...
by Dissapointed>.< on 2018/12/11 22:19
1.) ads every seven minutes 2.) I can’t afford to upgrade 3.) there’s currently a glitch that has for whatever reason decided it’s going to just downright stop working so I have to delete the app and start all over again #3 happened to me just now and it’s forgotten my account, and when I try to click on “forgot password?” It won’t send to my account. FIX THIS.
Love pandora but update lastnite is trash on my phone
by COADA on 2018/12/11 22:18
This update has screwed the app up bad on my iPhone XS Max. Been fine til now. Please fix !!!
Love pandora
by shelb1357 on 2018/12/11 22:17
I read through some comments about how bad pandora is and the adds and it’s insane how people don’t appreciate that pandora is FREE. I’ve had no problems with watching a few adds for like 30sec. I don’t have premium, just regular downloaded pandora and it is amazing, 100% of the time I listen to music is using pandora, and I’m a person who likes that u mix up songs and I like hearing the different variety of songs. Recently tho I discovered a problem and I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but it won’t let me play music and says buffing all the time, and ik I have service/WiFi. So if there’s some way to fix that, it would be greatly appreciated because pandora is like my main source of music, definitely recommend it tho.
My app
by truckgirl21 on 2018/12/11 22:17
My Pandora app hasn’t been working ever since the new update. This is frustrating because I use this app so much. I’m also paying money for this to have the best music and for it not to work is very upsetting.
Update to useless
by Noneofthismatters on 2018/12/11 22:17
For a company that has released 25 updates to this app over the past 8 months they can’t seem to make it just work. Only functions sporadically and freezes MOST of the time. Why do I pay for a subscription to silence??
Freezing and repetitive
by edvanro on 2018/12/11 22:15
When it works it just repeats the same songs over and over and there is no variety in the station you’re listening to. Like to the point where it starts out with the same song every time you click on a certain station, for me anyways. And lately it’s just been frozen and I can’t listen to anything, even after the update
sorry your account could not load
by Evat281 on 2018/12/11 22:12
getting tired of seeing this message. i even tried to delete the app and load it again. it’s not a connection issue, it’s a pandora piece of crap issue. all of my other apps are loading fine. not even worth the $5/month if there’s loading issues.
Buggy in the latest update 😩
by Kellygrrl2 on 2018/12/11 22:11
Latest update is fun! Every time a song ends the next song won’t start! Yay! Acts like the song is still playing, you can thumb up and down and press “pause” but there’s nothing playing! Close the app, re-open and NOTHING! I hope this bug is fixed soon! I guess I’ll be downloading the competition
Stuck!
by Healthy gram on 2018/12/11 22:09
I was listening to Steve Tyrell Christmas music and in the middle of the song Pandora STOPPED!! What the heck is going on? I tried to swipe forward, then changed the channel I was listening to, even shut it down and to start everything all over. There is no way I’ll ever pay for prime when you can’t even use the regular (and listening to ads)!! Guess I’ll just go back to using my music on my phone, at least it’s reliable and won’t STOP playing 🤷🏼‍♀️
Garbage.
by deadbat13 on 2018/12/11 22:08
I haven’t been able to play anything on my app all day. I turned my phone off, deleted and redownloaded, went on WiFi... nothing. And now that I’ve downloaded it again, NOTHING shows up. Blank. White. No stations, nothing. And when I try to log out of my blank nothingness, it tells me that my account settings could not be loaded. So glad I’m paying for this 😒
Bye bye premium pandora

Removing support for Mac
by C5555555555555 on 2018/12/11 22:04
Was suggested by Pandora support to buy a windows 10 PC instead. Complete disgrace.
Newest update fails to load

Most recent update fails to load. Reinstalled and rebooted device. Will not load successfully.
Rarely works, when does commercials surely play loud
by Sundaeluv on 2018/12/11 22:03
So inconsistent, music wont play half the time and when it does the songs are not like the ones I chose the channel for! Example Pink Martini Holiday channel, it did once when I created but ever since NEVER plays Pink Martini! Everything but including songs/instrumentals/music stles that dont even sound like holiday music or anything like Pink Martini. Geesh. A better more reliable option is TuneIn radio or Jango or YouTube even.
Newest version crashes

Terrible
by hajdoebsbckd on 2018/12/11 21:59
This app used to be good for all day listening but lately it’s just god awful. It’ll work great for hours but when I take a phone call and try to go back to it, it never works right, always says buffering. No matter how many different channels I try or close it and reopen it. Just going to use amazon music for good. You guys ruined something so good and simple!
Not working
by ffgujnbggjnfg on 2018/12/11 21:59
With each update it works less. Constantly down on the phone and doesn’t work well with Alexa anymore.
Downgraded again...
by 21SAR42 on 2018/12/11 21:58
To a 1. This app is now totally useless. It played well for awhile but now It doesn’t play in the car at all. It stopped playing completely to the point where I get a blank screen on my app. My husband has a Samsung and never has issues. This has to be an issue with the Apple phones?
New update
by TheBane Ojeda on 2018/12/11 21:57
I just did the update has no sound on iphone xs max fix it ASAP !!
JUST NO
by This_User-Name_Is-Taken on 2018/12/11 21:56
This is the least efficient app I’ve ever used, it’s so glitchy and unreliable. I tried all the “reboot” options but that got nowhere. You can skip out on paying, but you’re paying you’re time when you need to reboot and listen to mindless ads.
Disappointed
by jahahahahahahahahaoskdldlshs s on 2018/12/11 21:56
I pay the 5 a month for unlimited skips and it seems like the free pandora works way better. I keep having issues! I don’t understand why it’s telling me to connect to WiFi when I have the option to play offline since it’s part of paying the $5 a month. Not happy with this.

Will not play only buffers
by sclucifer on 2018/12/11 21:52
I have paid for the premium and it will not play anything it will only buffer. Even when I have full signal or WiFi connected. The help support on the app is useless. Really not happy for the money I have been paying. Time to cancel and switch to Apple Music.
Terrible
by Mygotbebo on 2018/12/11 21:51
Freezes requiring you to reinstall the program. Constantly saying something went wrong try again later and being Locked out of your favorite station for hours. Overall frustrating garbage

I love this but...
by Big and UPSET on 2018/12/11 21:49
I’ve been a fan because it’s rather effortless to play similar genre(s) and artists without the tediousness of other applications. However, today as I was listening to my Beatles station, I was given ONE Beatles song, then a completely off-genre song, I skipped maybe 30 songs, still no Beatles lol. I turn to my Guns N’ Roses station and Beatles plays immediately. Kinda annoying, well actually really annoying. :/ Might just move to Spotify. EDIT: deleted the app. Wouldn’t play any music from my channels. Garbage. I cannot believe I actually invested in this app. Waste of money anymore.
Won't load
by MarioFreak1997 on 2018/12/11 21:48
I tried to load up Pandora like normal and it won't pull anything up. I checked it on my boyfriend's phone too and it isn't working
Ughhh
by funkwitch on 2018/12/11 21:48
This app only works about half of the time. You’ll open the app, pick out a station, one song will play and then it just gets stuck! I’ll try switching to a different station and it won’t load a song. I’ve waited for ten minutes, updated app, deleted it and re-downloaded it. This has happened on several different occasions and it does the same thing on my friends phones as well. So if you want a music app where the whole point of the app is to press play and NOT have to mess with it again, don’t download pandora. If you want a music app that actually plays music, use AppleMusic. Thank you and good day.

Issues with Connectivity
by _d_a_7 on 2018/12/11 21:45
I’ve been having a lot of trouble with the app randomly cutting off or crashing without warning. It will freeze even when I’m on WiFi at home while my other music service apps will work perfectly fine. It also has issues when playing over Bluetooth devices - it will pause mid song. I really wanted to like this service and was willing to make the switch, but I’m frustrated by this issue.
Recent Update
by mary1030 on 2018/12/11 21:45
I love Pandora, but with this recent update the app keeps crashing and it’s driving me crazy! Plus, I pay monthly and it’s not like I’m going to get a discount for the app crashing..please have it fixed! 😩
Crashing/ not doing anything
by Fiveohstang13 on 2018/12/11 21:44
App crashes most of the time or when I open it the first time it doesn’t play when I’m clearly connected to WiFi with full bars for both that and cell coverage. This problem has been going on a little over a year. I thought it was my phone... bought a new one, thought it was my cell service... bout a new plan with Verizon.... the app is still complete garbage and doesn’t play when I transition from WiFi to cell data or if I simply have both like right now I can play the app.... screen comes up shows the last song and doesn’t do anything..... complete garbage. Please fix your app as I am already trying new ones in the mean time just in case
Sucking now
by SJPhil on 2018/12/11 21:44
Pandora, fix your app!!!!! All of the sudden I can’t load pandora on my iPhone.
Freezes and fails ALOT
by Dannyshsbsksl on 2018/12/11 21:44
Don’t pay for this service it’s trash. Since I’ve paid for the premium service (a few months ago) I’ve had to delete and re download countless times and it freezes literally every day can’t even stream for long before it freezes and I have to close the app out or delete entirely and re download. Again don’t waste your time paying for the premium service there is better streaming services and more reliable.
Updated, Now Doesn’t Work

by airsep57 on 2018/12/11 21:41
Please fix!!! 1. Pandora has trouble connecting to the vehicle app. 2. When it does connect and the song changes it disconnects about 10 seconds and then reconnects... This has happened before and you took a while to fix... please fix ASAP

This crashes
by Jcdgvxzchbcsxg on 2018/12/11 21:39
You all need to update this app as soon as possible because it makes no sense to pay for it every month and use the free version just for it to crash every time. It’s sad. Fix this please

Bug fixes
by NateSherman1 on 2018/12/11 20:18
I love this app, it’s my go to app on the go. However when you guys do big fixes on the app can you please stop fixing songs that are explicit cause when it says explicit on a songs like 2pac, Snoop Dogg or Biggie Smalls etc and it’s not explicit it’s not cool to listen to the song when you already like it cause the song is not explicit it makes the song not likable.
I love listening to pandora
by ms.Lady Tee on 2018/12/11 19:54
I truly love listening to pandora I listen to my gospel music all day and night I really don’t think I could live without being able to listen to it. I thank you all who came up with pandora may god bless and keep you all from this day and forward. Again thanks from the bottom of my heart.
Love Pandora!

Time consuming in a good way
by MajestaV on 2018/12/11 19:28
I’m always so bored and music is the only thing that keeps me entertained.I tried Spotify but I find it more confusing and pandora is just so simple in my opinion plus I get super inpatient.And it could be my earbuds or the app itself but I love the quality/sound and I just think the app is a good music app 🙂
Great Music !
by JoeDBrp on 2018/12/11 19:23
Pandora has great music - from stations that I create! As long as I have internet, I have my favorite sounds - you can't beat that! Thanx Pandora
I’d rather pay for YouTube
by AgonizedCash565 on 2018/12/11 19:17
It takes forever to load one song, I go on YouTube and search up the same song and I get it almost instantly besides an advertisement that happens once then I get no ads for 2 hours
It’s changed
by catagoon on 2018/12/11 19:12
I don’t understand the double ads Also just way more ads in general but hey it’s pandora I’ve been using it for years pretty good variety.
Loved it but the Updates took that away...
by Cristyav on 2018/12/11 19:08
Pandora nooo don’t do that! The update took many of the words out from the songs. No it’s not a good remix. The songs should have original words not some DJ thing on my songs? I’m way old enough to make sure I have manners and not use curse words around professionally. I’ve always listened to Pandora but might need to go to another app to enjoy the original versions. Come on Pandora..

Music Standstill?
by joshton_66 on 2018/12/11 18:36
I just downloaded Pandora onto a new device so it is the latest update so I have never any problems until now. I don’t know why but whenever I leave a station and go back to it minutes later, the same song is still playing or has started over. It is happening with every station, I don’t know if this part of the update or the app is just acting. It is still a decent listening app but this kills me if I have to keep pressing skip.
why won't the song I click play
by drusilla.d on 2018/12/11 18:25

i LOVE pandora. i’m one of those who is team pandora instead of spotify. but i had to cancel my premium because all of a sudden i can’t listen to music after about a minute after exiting the app!! i’m heartbroken and i really hope they fix this so i can start using it again. i love pandora but i can’t pay $13/month for something that i literally cannot use

STOP WITH THE RADIO EDITS REPLACING EXPLICIT WHEN I HAVE EXPLICIT CONTENT ENABLED
by matt70lock on 2018/12/11 16:33
Ok, seriously, what is the point of turning the slider for explicit content on? I thumbs upped the original explicit track and now it’s somehow been replaced with some bs radio edit?! No. I didn’t thumbs up a radio edit, my explicit slider has ALWAYS been set to allow explicit content because several songs I enjoy have explicit lyrics. I don’t appreciate pandora coming in and forcing bs radio edits on me, if I wanted to here the blanked out version I’d listen to the regular radio. Common sense says if I wanted to hear the radio edit instead of the explicit I’d have searched and thumbs upped the radio edit. No, the explicit played, and I thumbed up the explicit, don’t switch what I thumbs upped to a bs radio edit, and if you do change my thumbs up to the explicit version because that’s the version I originally thumbs upped
Awesome
by ctina62 on 2018/12/11 16:32
Love this on my phone. Use it all the time
More options and more selection in library would be nice.
by maryrege on 2018/11/28 21:33
I was initially so excited at the possibilities until I realized that they were more limited than I thought. I’m a 57 year old Caucasian woman that listens to almost every genre except country. I find your world music selection limited as well as classical music and ecclesiastical. When I look up Greek Orthodox chants, Russian Orthodox chants come up which are not always in a Byzantine style. It would be great to be able to tempo match, match by subject matter, pick the song order, blend one into another and pick by century or decade of each style when I looked for a thanksgiving playlist all I found was some fifties crooners Jazz. What I would have liked to find was songs about being thankful and fall spanning multiple decades as my guests had a seventy year gap that blended into each other seemlessly . The only advantage to Pandora prime is the lack of commercials. What I would like to see is a more expansive selection with a simplified djing ability. I would also like your premise playlists to be more carefully curated and not a sloppy bunch of disconnected songs. PLEASE when I click that I like a song don’t assume I want a playlist made by you containing a hindustani raga mixed with hypercrush and the thrice holy hymn. Whatever logarithm you use to pick does not make the cut. Each month I want to drop the service but feel bad that I will lose my lists. How can I get a job with you?
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 Pandora..BUT!!
by TheGirlGamer202 on 2018/12/02 17:04
Not really enjoying the new update too well.. I mean yes pandora is the best app and I’ve used it for years!! But the new update just makes it a little frustrating because whenever you are listening to the station and go into another one the song plays but then when you’ve gone through all of them and go back to the previous station it just plays the song over and after you play the song for a few seconds it resumes when you go back to that station... overall I love the app but it’s kinda frustrating to have this happen... I miss just going into a station and just having it continue the song even when I don’t have that particular station active. But I hope that you guys can fix this issue and so that I can be satisfied with it again. Thanks for taking the time to read this review sorry it’s kinda long but I’m just trying to get this frustrating issue fixed ASAP... thanks!!! (Ps i agree about the fact that we should be able to like/dislike the songs when you turn the phone on so that we wouldn’t have to unlock the phone every time!!!!) thanks again Hope everyone gets their issues fixed as well as my own!!!!!!!
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 !!!
Meh
by Sparky3860 on 2018/11/16 11:26
I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.
Used to be awesome but then...
by AceKing42 on 2017/10/12 18:52
I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
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
There are important things to be fixed.. like content filtering
by siisdhdbb on 2018/09/10 11:44
Pandora’s explicit content filter does NOT work. I’ve had my explicit content on since I downloaded the app and continue to hear f-word, a-word, and much more. If the f-word isn’t a curse word or explicit, what is?? There is literally no difference with or without the filter. I hear trashy songs and they won’t even play the proper clean version of the song with this filter. FIX THIS or I am deleting the app and going to search for something else with an actual explicit filter that works. Also, in the middle of the song it starts buffering for no reason. This has happened to other people I know as well, even with reliable WiFi/data. And the same song will start and stop a couple times with LONG pauses during the song of silence and buffering for no reason. Please fix these things and then you’ll keep me. And I’m more than happy to spread the word to many people I know, with and without kids, that the explicit filter does not work, so don’t get Pandora. Please fix that issue ASAP.
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.
