Editors' review

Pandora Radio lets you create your own stations with the kind of music you like and even gives you the option of listening ad-free for a small fee. And you can create as many different stations as you want, so you'll always have just the right station to match your mood.

Pros

Free listening: This app gives you the freedom to listen to a wide variety of songs by numerous artists for free. There are commercials every few songs, but they aren't long and generally only come one or two at a time, unlike commercials on actual radio stations. If you'd rather get rid of the ads all together, though, you can subscribe to Pandora One for $3.99 a month.

Sync across devices: Whether you have a free or paid account, you can log in to it on any computer to listen to your stations. So even if you don't have your phone with you, you never need to be without your music.

Cons

Interactivity: Pandora plays songs that its algorithms consider similar to whatever song, artist, or genre you entered when you created your station. You can help tailor the music selection even further by giving each song played a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. If you're listening in a situation in which you can't or don't want to consistently provide feedback, though, you may wind up listening to a whole string of songs you don't like.

Bottom Line

Pandora is a great, free way to listen to the kinds of music you like whenever you're in the mood. It's probably not perfect for every situation, because you can't dictate which tracks it plays when, but if you just want something on in the background, it's a good option to have on hand.

    "Awesome besides for ads and station problems."

    March 05, 2013   |   By yuki7400

    Version: Pandora Radio 3.1.13

    Pros

    Gives you music that you'll most likely really like baesd on the station you use.
    The app itself looks really nice and clean appearance wise.
    Usually doesn't take less than half a second to second to go to the next song based on your internet connection.
    For mobile and desktop

    Cons

    When listening to a foreign station like a K-Pop station, a lot of times there will be a song in English or something other than Korean that doesn't go with the station at all.
    Ads are so annoying and I keep getting Victorias Secret ads which is kind of awkward.
    You can only skip a certain amount of times.
    Sometimes the song will be in the place where the artist should be and vice versa.
