Pandora is best! My stations on Pandora are all mine. I have one for every genre that I like. They've become unique through my thumbs ups. It's like playing the songs on my phone, on shuffle, but new songs are thrown in. The new ones that are played are music discovered or old songs I still like. But, if I don't like that song, it's easy to get rid of it. The only things I'd like to change, I could get that if I paid for it! But I'm good with the free version. Love it.
The last few update have really F***ed up this app!! App keeps buffering after one song plays and stays that way unless I change the station then the same thing happens all over again. Developers please fix I really don't want to have to go back to Spotify.
Never hear a song you hate again, mostly. No\slow connection with Starlink (Subaru) Bluetooth since Nougat updates (phone pairs quickly with car and other apps stream fine): . Otherwise my favorite app. Seriously with Pandora I don't understand why people waste their money with satellite radio. Would be 5 stars and a subscription if it was as reliable as it used to be before 7. (6p)
THE NEW UPDATE HAS GENUINE ISSUES Why do more companies focus power towards smooth loading animations when they should put the effort into actually improving their system?! HALF THE TIME I OPEN PANDORA, IT STAYS ON THAT LOADING SCREEN AND NEVER FULLY LOADS! Other times it will abruptly crash when I skip a song, this has happened to me even when I was right next to my router, so connection is not the issue.
Buffering I'd say this app is over all a great way to listen to music for free and in my opinion that's the way it should be, because most people can't afford to use data on their phones so that's why I use this app. Anyways when I play a song and at the end of the song it starts to buffer...I have to then wait or close the app and re-open the app as It then skips 4 great songs I like then after the end of the one it playes it buffers again. Even when I'm not on the app and on the lock screen doing other stuff.
Ok I tried the subscription because they added an offline feature. I regularly drive a 3 hr drive with about 45 minutes being out of service. Thought it would be cool. Ya right. They download one to two songs and just repeat those songs over and over. Hello! I cancelled my subscription. They need to get it together. Slacker does a great job with their offline feature. I just like Pandora's features better. So if they fixed it I would subscribe again.
