2 ‘Pandora Radio’ Reviews
Not as promised
it's great listening to old and new music. The customizable stations are wonderful. However, before you buy the "premium" version, take note of a few things I've noticed:
#1 The Pandora servers go down... a LOT
#2 while you have hundreds of songs, it will replay several of your songs repeatedly throughout the day.... making something you loved into something you hate.
#3 Station size is limited.
#4 you can only skip 6 songs per hour.
#5 There are still ads.
Overall, Pandora is "OK" but it's failing fast. If I waited another month to review this service, I would probably rate is a 2 instead of a 3.
Pandora.com is the first of its kind—a customizable online radio station that plays only the music that you want to listen to. I fell in love with the site the first time I used it. The basic site is free to everyone but there is also an upgraded version you can subscribe to and pay for which I signed up for.
There are now no more ads(which were very annoying to me in the free version) and you can customize even more of your music. I have always liked listening to the radio and this is the best radio you can ever listen to. Don’t like an artist? You can ban it from your station—that is one of my favorite aspects. It is so easy to customize your radio station with a click of your mouse.
One of the easiest ways to find new artists is through Pandora. I really like how they display the detailed artist information with each song. This is one of the greatest inventions of the internet!
