Pandora's Android App No Longer Looks Like Crap

Authored by: Steven Blum — Aug 23, 2012

Pandora – the streaming music service that's been around faar longer than Spotify – finally updated their Android app today. The new app sports a totally refreshed UI and a bunch of new features including the ability to:

  • Browse song histories.
  • Review, rate and bookmark tracks whilst browsing
  • Read artist's bio, without pausing the track.
  • View lyrics instantly

In case you didn't know, Pandora's software considers over 400 musical attributes in order to select the next song in your playlist. It's available in both a free ad-supported version and a paid ad-free version. My experience with Pandora has led me to a whole ton of new music I didn't know I would ever like. If you're in the U.S. (the only place where the service actually works), I'd say downloading it is a no-brainer.

    Both Spotify and Pandora are light years ahead of Slacker Radio (worst bloat software ever next to Peep, Footprints, Car Panel, FM Radio, Friend Stream, News & Weather, Stocks, Talk, Teeter, etc) ...

    You guys just GOTTA download Songza. It's like Pandora but based on your mood, even more awesome!
    Also not available in germany, but download the apk and it works ;)

  • i really like PANDORA's app. But the only thing mlssing is the ability to record songs. I've tried downloading pandora one on my tablet but it won't take and also on my android phone. I hope they fix that real soon.
