CNET Editors' review
Pandora Radio is an app that provides a free audio feed that is customizable to your musical tastes. The free app provides the basic service, or you can upgrade (for $3.99 a month) to a higher-quality feed that removes all ads and has fewer interruptions. The app installs easily from iTunes.
When you start Pandora Radio for the first time, you select a favorite artist, song, or album, and Pandora Radio will start to create customized playlists with similar music. As the playlists go on, you can fine-tune the types of music you like or dislike and the feed will update accordingly. Pandora Radio can also scan your existing library and factor that in to the stream. The attraction with Pandora Radio is that you don't get the same music stream as everyone else choosing the same genre, but a more flexible and customizable stream of music. The only annoyance in the free version of the app is the interruptions between songs to add advertisements. One other factor we noticed is some songs will repeat themselves within a short timespan, with the stream not considering the recent history.
In our testing, we enjoyed the music streams from Pandora Radio. The app is easy to work with and provides a good alternative to listening to your iTunes library. We did have a few issues with slow data connections, but that's to be expected. While there are a few competing music streaming services, Pandora Radio has been around for a while and has a lot of fans.

"Awesome besides for ads and station problems."
Version: Pandora Radio 3.1.13
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
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.
"Love this app"
Version: Pandora Radio 3.1.13
Clean, easy to use UI.
Takes off where I left on my PC browser.
None that I can think of.
