  • Great way to personalize genres

    by 1nettieb1

    This is a fabulous way to listen to great hits from particular genres. And be able to like some and then hear it again the next day! Love it!!

  • More skips

    by SW: TOR

    Every less than a hundred skips I get a message saying that I can't skip anymore songs. Is this your idea to do this because I need more skips. Could you fix that?

  • A few tweaks?

    by sXeSloth

    Could there be an option to not play songs before/after a certain decade? After playing a successful string of good songs on one of my metal stations, Pandora will suddenly start playing nothing but classic metal from a music period before my tastes despite there being much better, more recent songs to be played. Additionally, my soul station starts playing funk, and aged r&b. Setting preferences to filter out certain artists/genre's in a channel would help out as well. I've heard artists who's every song that came up, I didn't like at all, and had dubstep, country, and 90's alternative playing on channels they had no business playing in. I realise thumbing up a track skews the direction the channel goes, adding the song attributes to the algorithm, widening the song selection pool, that's why adding filters would vastly improve Pandora and help make station much more successful in being personalised.

  • Album Covers

    by Vinshady

    I love pandora, had it since the first launch date! One little problem though, when a song is playing it doesn't show the album cover on most of the songs. It's not a big deal but I'd appreciate if it would get fixed.

  • Love this app

    by Smooty102

    This app play the songs I like just enough to where I often but not to much to where its the same songs on repeat.

  • Album covers.

    by fastolddodge

    Before the update I was able to see the album covers, but after the update I no longer am able to see them. Overall it's an amazing app, but I would like to be able to see the covers again if possible!!

  • Nice update

    by Viziux

    It's awesome


    by WOST EVER

    I don't know what I would do with out pandora they play all the hits with this app you will practically know all of the songs that are on the radio this is a great app you should get it :D

  • Great! The best ever!!!!!

    by Bee Wee

    The yearly subscription is well worth the $48 a year. Piece of crap Sirius would cost $180 annually. They would play the same songs every single day, over and over. No comparison between the two. I like the fast forward skip function, and the thumbs-up and thumbs- down are great options. I can't say enough nice things about Pandora. I listen to it constantly!!

  • One of a kind

    by Back back48

    This app is one o my favorites i don't mind if there is a commercial in between its better than hearing 10 commercials in the radio also love the features on this app and how it runs.

  • I love it but.....

    by shivboo

    It would be awesome if it had some kind of visual effect when you listen to it on your computer!

  • PandoraOne

    by CmarieKern

    Five words: Pandora One, Totally Worth it! Can't even imagine using another music app. <3

  • New Update

    by nmarq017

    I love Pandora. I subscribed to it almost three years ago. I will continue to pay for it. However with this new updated version of Pandora I just installed on my iPhone 5 if I have my phone locked while playing Pandora it only plays one song at a time. Please fix this ASAP :(

  • Fantastic app!

    by Anne Meyer

    Use this ALL the time! Frustrating that I have to go to my computer to make changes to stations, though.

  • Lots of variety!

    by Tater284

    Love Pandora!!

  • Love it

    by Cheriland

  • I love this app!

    by Boricuaaxx3

    This app is just amazing I love finding the perfect station but yesterday while updating my app the app itself disappeared on my phone and when I tried to re-download it it says open as if the app is still there and it's not. Please I need this app back no matter what I do it won't show up!

  • It needs an equalizer!!!!!

    by Exemptcosmine

    I would like an equalizer to make it sound better

  • Album covers

    by Djstaten1

    After a while the album covers disappear and i know it's not my internet. Must be the update or something

  • Great!!

    by Reigan Gonzales

  • Not so great after recent update

    by Jdanner06

    After about an hour the app crashes in the background and music stops. Please fix ASAP!

  • Album artwork missing

    by icewingdog

    Quit, ended, and restarted Pandora. Only showed album artwork from the first song.

  • Fail update

    by Moneyman1688

  • Unsatisfied

    by 122997

  • to many ads

    by CAROLEN77

    unlees u want to listen to CONSTANT ads dont download an ad after each song pretty much

  • Bad App, good music

    by SSinSF

    Consistently had to resign in for no reason, the app also would never remember I have a subscription and would make me retrieve it from iTunes

  • Don't update

    by Scottie S

    App was fine. Latest update lets me play one song then app crashes. I have Pandora 1, this needs to be fixed

  • Good when works

    by Chris ^_^94

    After playing for a short while it tells me there are no tracks available on this station and doesn't let me play any other stations... Honestly the most infuriating thing I can imagine with this app

  • New update

    by CactusAuto

    New update keeps crashing after about two songs. Then you have to log back in. Help please.

  • Bugs

    by Smokey12343

    Album artwork not showing up please fix!!!

  • Nice app!!!

    by Dinesh_Mahara

    Nice update

  • Advertisements are getting annoying

    by Dinocoar

    I can listen to one song then advertisements for 30 seconds to a minute after ever song. I know advertisements makes them money but after every song is unnecessary.

  • The Best Out There

    by Renato7

    When I signed up for pandora a while back I was just testing it out seeing what it was, made a few stations and wow just the way your own stations evolve to your liking is amazing. I know apple came out with something similar but I'm gonna have to stick with pandora on this one. Download it, you have nothing to lose

  • Pandora

    by Panda poop

    It's ok but doesn't always give you the songs you want

  • Updates make life more difficult!

    by Mark Erickson

    I would use this app more often, if they would stop deleting my user and password every time they update.

  • Can't get rid of likes

    by NoneO'yoBusiness

    The only problem is that I accidently liked a song, and now I can't remove it from my likes. I tried for a long time, then got frustrated and quit. Until this is fixed, I can't truly enjoy Pandora.

  • Just missing some things

    by Chriis_M

    Great app, I just thing there should be a setting to set up the stations in the order you want. Also I think there should be a 45 minute option for the sleep timer. As well what about the swiping to go back, that needs to be added. Btw can you possibly make a better app icon? It's so boring

  • I love pandora

    by Macy24687

    Pandora is awesome cause u get to listen to any song u like its a radio where ever u go u can listen to it:D!?

  • Great app!

    by Hdfedujfjhdydhxfjdjf

    I love this app and great update!

  • Change it back!

    by JesusisLord90

    I agree with everyone who gave 1 star due to skipped songs, too many ads, songs cutting off, etc. pandora: please fix these problems for the 5 stars this app deserves..?? You guys are awesome :)

  • Worth downloading

    by Minion !!!!!! :D

    This app is awesome. Search any artist and all there songs come out. Thanks pandora!!!

  • Love

    by Kathryne Nida

    I love Pandora, this app is great! I use the alarm every night and love the variety in the stations.

  • Wifi?

    by Banana butts

    Does it need wifi to play songs?

  • Pausing

    by mikijklfjakldf

    The Pandora is randomly pausing itself

  • Love it but...

    by Warthog64

    Great app but what's up with the censored songs. The whole point of your app for me is to not have to listen to the butchered clean versions on the radio. Please fix this and have an option to play explicit songs.

  • Love it but needs alarm for ipad

    by Caz703

    Love pandora, wish i had more skips allowed, less ads of course, always said you need an alarm but i meant for the ipad, not just iphone - please add this feature for ipad!

  • Love living life full of all tunes and beats!

    by Kbkeri

    I love being able to pick my mood and desire through music. I love most all genré of music and voice. I love voices and the gift of their particular tone.

  • We got back together

    by WurldPeas

    Pandora and I broke up for a while when she put the 40 hr limit on our time together. Forced me to see some other girls. Now that Pandora has reconsidered, we are going steady again. Hope she can keep her head straight this time. There are lots of others out there begging for my attention.


    by Weareawesome

    Pandora is my favorite music app. It's one of my top 5, too. I don't know about anyone else but I hope that when Pandora is updated, the radio only plays songs of that artist? I would like it better like that

  • Love it

    by Theseashells

    It keeps buffering.

  • My personalized Radio

    by anonymus01

    I really enjoy Pandora, the fact that I can pretty much change the station at any moment is great. The only downside is the ads that appear on the top and bottom of the screen- I am constantly being brought to other screens :( but over all a great app

  • Sweet

  • I am in love with this app!!!

    by Dave Russell

    This app has a wonderfully large amount of music from many different styles. I am not the kind of person that just listens to one style or type of music and this app helps me explore more music. I wish that they had a better app for the Blackberry Playbook.

  • Yesh

  • Great music discovery service

    by dAn 0016

    Review for service: It's really great for finding and indexing(by thumbs upping) all the songs that you like but never actually made a playlist of. Only thing I would like is to be able to stop replay without stopping current song so that you can let the song play out before stop listening to music - the only way I like to stop listening to music to. Another issue: I don't like listening to remixes/live versions of songs so I usually just thumbs them down even if it's of a song I like, but now I'm hesitant to do that because I'm worried Pandora will think I don't like those kinds of songs, which isn't true, but I don't want to keep on wasting skips on those songs in the future by not "thumbsing" them down already. Review for app: Easy to use and to the point(starts last played station when app is launched). On bug though: An ad will play along side a song, and sometimes skip that song when you close the overlapping ad.

  • Great App!

  • Great app but....

    by Foxbiker

    This app really is one of my favorite app and has worked it's way to the front page of my phone and has become my preferred destination for music, how ever, there are WAY TOO MANY ADS! I mean I literally have two commercials in a row, nearly every other song, I mean I know that they are trying to make money, but with the number of ads that are being played, they might be loosing customers, I'm pretty close to changing.... Idk if it's just me but there are way too many ads and it is getting really annoying
