  • Great app but... Jan 4, 2021

    By @sarca
    This is an excellent app. I absolutely love it and I use it all the time. It allows free music, music curated for you, and make your own playlists. The reason, though, that I gave it three stars is because of ads. I get it. If I skip the songs like ten times, yeah I should get an ad. But sometimes the ads are quite long. And, on top of that, after the ad ends I only get two skips. Also, it randomly plays ads in the middle of songs. I will be listening to something then all of a sudden I will hear “We have great deals at target”. Usually these ads will last about thirty seconds and then when the ad is over, it skips the song you were listening to. One more complaint. If you make a playlist with 10+ songs, you will not be able to listen to all of them in one sitting. After listening to about 5-7 songs on your playlist, it will cut and send you to a random station. It’s annoying because sometimes I just wanna listen to MY songs. The ones that I picked out. This really gets on my nerves because when I’m in my feels, and I’m listening to my “sad song” playlist, it will cut randomly to a pop hits or a hip hop station. Once again. Super frustrating. I basically stopped making/listening to my playlist because I can only listen to a few songs in one sitting. Please fix these minor problems, but other than that...great app.

    I really used to love Pandora but that feeling is dissipating quickly. I now currently listen to podcasts. Sometimes I can fast forward and sometimes not...no apparent rhyme or reason. The episodes skip around again without an obvious reason and it doesn't seem to save my place most of the time. If this is some weird way to get me to purchase premium, its having an opposite influence. It has made me seriously consider a paid service BUT Pandora has NOT made that list of options.

  • Can’t get it right AGAIN!!! Dec 2, 2017

    By Vipedogg
    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.

    Though I've had Pandora for years, in the last few months, it'll randomly start playing music out of nowhere. Ive had this happen in the most inopportune times, and it's incredibly annoying. In regards to music, I have Premium, and I absolutely love the selections. I wish this glitch would get fixed, cause I'd definitely rate it 5 stars otherwise.

    What can i say? Its a free music app that actually plays the music you like and its free. It has its flaws and nothing is ever going to be quite perfect. Ever. Its a damn fine alternative compared to listening to the garbage they play on FM radio. Good job, Pandora. And thank you!👍😇

    Pandora dose too much. They are always trying to make a list for you, bogging up the menu, making it hard to find what you actually want to hear. I'd been listening to a rock station for two day. Change it up for a while, now I can't find what I'd been listening to. They sure as hell have top thumbs up for 2020 tho. That bs is in your face.

    My app will not load up. It always says i have no internet connection when my phone is connected to the wifi or my data. I always have to press retry like 5 times before the apps loads up and even then it says nothing is loading. "An error has occured", "cant load profile", "no internet connection avilable" are all the pop up ive gotten. I have been with you guys on and off for over 2 years and never had this many problems.

  • App needs so much work Mar 28, 2019

    By Waelwulfan
    The service itself is great. All of my complaints are with the app and not Pandora itself. 1. App seems to get shut down in the background after only a few minutes if it’s not playing music. Even if you’re not doing anything else with your phone. So when you open it back up, everything needs to reload and whatever song you were listening to is gone. 2. CarPlay issues. OMG, where to begin? CarPlay with Pandora is a disaster. Keeps going from Now Playing back to the Stations screen. Stations don’t load (blank screen) sometimes, forcing you to use your phone to get started. If you change stations or skip songs, sometimes the Now Playing screen will still show the previous song for a good 10 seconds or more, during which time onscreen controls like Pause will not work. 3. Offline songs are noticeably louder than if they’re streamed. Offline mode also seems hesitant to switch back online despite a strong and solid network connection. 4. Ever since Offline mode was introduced, the streaming cache has been severely reduced. It used to cache 3-4 songs. Now it doesn’t seem to cache the next song until the current one is half way done. If you’re in a spotty area and you skip the current song, you’re out of luck. I would happily trade Offline mode to get back a bigger streaming cache.

    Used to have tons of personalized stations and now everything is gone. Seems like they want you to upgrade to be able to listen to anything decent? I even tried searching for something as simple as "Top Hits" and nothing great. I've been using my Pandora account since I was in 6th grade. I'll be 21 this year so that's quite some time of music build up. Very disappointed that I have to delete the app now because it's no longer worth it without paying. Wouldn't recommend.

  • Ads, ads, and then more ads Oct 21, 2017

    By Combzz
    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.

  • It could be better Mar 10, 2019

    By Margaret Kellyyy
    I have the premium subscription and overall I’m pleased with the easy to use platform, music selection and the quality of sound. However I do agree with other users that I wish Pandora would give users (especially those that pay for premium) the ability to edit/sort your stations and playlists on your home page. Yes you can filter for your stations or downloaded playlists but I’m pretty particular and I like things to be alphabetical... or the order in which my brain thinks is most logical. But the thing that bothers me THE MOST is the fact that when you pause a song, and lock your phone and walk away for a moment or pause to have a conversation with a coworker and you go back to the app, it acts like you just opened the app and the song you were listening to you, at your favorite part, starts over. What’s with that?! I understand that music apps may be different but the free game apps I have don’t wipe out my progress if I pause the game and “minimize” the app.... why can’t the app I pay monthly for do the same?!?

  • No radio zone. Mar 22, 2019

    By buddhaman79
    I put off moving from Fl to the backwoods of western North Carolina mostly because there was only talk radio and two country stations (I don’t like country at all) but as fait has it, I moved up here anyway in ‘07 & lived in misery until my first smart phone & finding the Pandora app in around ‘14 & found again what living was again. Than in mid 2017 I was working at a house in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end. I got no service out there & the free Pandora didn’t work out of coarse too. At this point I decided to brake down & get Pandora premium for off line playlist. I have had Pandora premium since that time and have never looked back. I love it, it is my personal radio station. Like I own my own station & can play whatever the hell I want. A few things pop up (can’t play due to licensing) but it’s rare enough & it usually doesn’t last long. Dollar for $ it is the best app I have for sure. I literally have it on 12 plus hours a day. From Hannibal Burris to Bradley’s Postmodern jukebox & 99.9% of anything in between.

    I'm so glad the app has been updated to have a control bar on the notification drop-down. That is one thing I've been thinking was missing for a long time. It does irritate me that the semi-transparent pop-up for the artist messages doesn't go away when the audio is over, and will still be there ten songs later if I don't clear it. Edit: I realized the artist messages can be turned off from the settings menu. Now I just wish the app would switch to dark mode. (Phone's in night mode)

  • Downloaded songs not really accessible Jan 24, 2018

    By Kitkatbiggie
    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!

  • Why I love Pandora. Nov 30, 2019

    By Pastel Peach🌸
    Omg, Pandora is simply the BEST!! It’s a place where you can find all of you favorite songs for free! I LOVE MUSIC! And if you love music as much as I do, then your going to LOVE Pandora. I love it so much that I listen to it in bed! 😂 But... the only thing I wish was different about Pandora, is that I really wish there were more songs that have a clean version. Sometimes, when I start listening to a song, I search for a clean version of it just in case. Let’s say I wanted to listen to “On My Way” By Alan Walker & Sabrina Carpenter, then I would normally search for a clean version of that song. But sometimes, I click the normal version of it because I would think it didn’t have bad words in it due to the fact that it didn’t have a clean version. But then... I get startled by the cuss words. And then, just because of that, I tend to dislike the song. So whenever I hear that song on a different station, I will most likely 👎🏼 the song. I love you Pandora, but please please work on those clean versions!! I really enjoy your music, I can’t wait to see what you do next! To: Pandora From: Me ❤️

    The good - has music The bad - like the shareware programs of a generation ago this thing has a zillion pop-up and audio ads an hour to advertise itself to get you to buy - tends to lose its mind if you don't have a solid internet connection, especially when you start it up. - the car app integration is absolutely atrocious, buggy, and the general nightmare. I've had to pull off the road stop the engine turn off the power to reset the app because it and my phone are both stuck.

  • Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful Jun 13, 2018

    By Fixxerboy
    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?

  • Last update makes pandora insufferable. Aug 31, 2020

    By Snorydr
    I have been happily using Pandora, commercial free, for years. Everything worked great, I never had to think about it. The last update has caused many many issues. First off, now I have to be on WiFi or in cell coverage to open pandora. No offline stations are accessible unless you are already online. If I am out of cell range I cannot open pandora until I am in cell range or WiFi. I get notices that pandora cannot he signed into, the station cannot he reached, or to change stations. There is no option to change stations or to go offline. When traveling this is incredibly frustrating to have to wait for the next cell coverage zone to open pandora. Why have offline stations downloaded onto my phone if I’m no longer allowed to use them? Also, when I run out of cell coverage, Pandora stops playing so it can tell me, “it looks like you’ve lost your internet connection so we are switching you to an offline station to keep the music playing”... you stopped the music to tell me you aren’t stopping the music. The regular chime that alerts me that pandora is switching to offline mode is adequate and not annoying. Please stop the lengthy diatribe about not stopping the music by stopping the music.

  • Nothing compared to Apple Music Feb 5, 2020

    By caleb_otto
    There are a lot of adds on Pandora and after paying the smaller subscription (something like $5 a month), I found that I was still limited in what I could do. I was not able to make or edit playlists nearly as well as Apple Music if at all (I never figured it out), the amount of likes and dislikes was also limited. There came several times when I noticed an apparent glitch in the system as well. There was a type of song that continued to play on a certain violin station (Daniel D) that sounded almost like a metronome. I pushed dislike. But then, as if I actually pushed “like”, it played another similar song. Before I knew it, I was listening to nothing but that type of music and patiently disliking every last one. Then I ran out of dislikes. I have noticed that a lot of stations are seemingly preset mostly by popular trends. My likes and dislikes don’t have as strong an influence as they should. Basses on these disappointments, I decided to find somewhere else to get my music. I got Apple Music unlimited for $4.99 on school discount. I have unlimited access to anything - unlimited skips, easily editing of playlists, unlimited likes and dislikes, recommended albums to add to playlists, I can skip to the middle of any song. Pandora served its purpose, but Apple Music, while compared side by side with pandora, is much better.
