    Love this app. Only music app that is worth trying. It's easy to use and looks great. Only issue I have is that when music is playing and I pause it the push shortcut dissappears from my phone. And I have to manually go to Pandora and hit play. Full Review

    Sooooo many ads unless you pay to subscribe. Even with a subscription, you lose unlimited skips if you are listening via Sonos (which I do most of the time). I can't just cast to Sonos, I have to access Pandora through Sonos, and it limits skips. I love Pandora otherwise and would give it five stars! But I just cancelled my subscription due to these limitations when used with Sonos. Full Review

    I had pandora premium for 2 months and suddenly half my downloaded music was gone. Then when I went to contact them I recieved an automated response and they have no number to call for assistance. I try to redownload my music and the app closes down. I wish I could recieve a refund but I know I wont. I'm canceling my service and I wont recommnd anyone else pay for it until they fix these issues and get some sort of live customer service.

    Too many ads, not the audio ones, those are acceptable and understandable. The ads that are a problem ones that keep popping up while you are trying to find info on the artist currently playing. You dismiss it and it just comes back over and over again. This is major annoyance and causes the app to lose all stars as it makes large features of the app virtually unusable. I'm not opposed to ads, a long as they don't obstruct usage of the app. Full Review

    Latest update has ruined Pandora. I have a Google pixel and the most recent update was installed automatically and now only about 1 out of every 5 songs actually plays audibly. Pandora shows that the music is playing but nothing can be heard. I'm a subscribed member of Pandora One which makes this even more frustrating. Full Review

    Matt McClure Published date: October 16, 2017

    Due to income restrictions this payment must be skipped at this time... I paid for the service because it advertised being able to play what I wanted when I wanted it and also skip all I want to. Then am told due to licensing restrictions this song cannot be skipped at this time. I'll just stick to the free version and YouTube. Full Review

    Pandora went so far downhill I'm disgusted. I've had premium for about 3 months now and I'm stuck looking up music on YouTube because the songs I want are "radio only". And the playlist I have set up is reduced to less than a third now because most of the songs are unavailable or their music license doesn't support the song. And to top it all off it told me I was unable to skip songs. Biggest waste of money. I will be cancelling my account, and switching to spotify and I know my sister is doing the same. I don't pay $120 a year to look music up on YouTube for free. Full Review

    I'll be listening to music and when the next song starts, there's no sound. It's still playing, but there's no sound. And, if I get a text or put my phone on the charger within about 20 minutes of shutting my music off, it will just start playing again. Also no matter how many times I thumbs down an artist, they'll just play a different song by the SAME artist. Full Review

    FRAUD ALERT: Pandora is charging a premium for 'unlimited skips'. I have several screenshots showing that they ARE limiting skips. If you have also experienced this, please post a review here to warn others. Pandora is asking for a lawsuit over this for breach of contract. Unlimited means unlimited. Pandora better correct this very quickly or they may end up getting SUED. Full Review

    As soon as you pay for premium it all goes haywire. Jumping stations, lock ups, and restarts. Stick with free. Developer's arent trying at all. Shame its a good concept. Dont trust the 4.4 rating... read the latest reviews to see what you are really getting right now. Slow patches..glitches galore. Also any song tou like dont expect the "replay" option long. As soon as the song becomes popular you will get a message that says due to licensing restrictions this song can no longer be replayed Full Review

    Estrelle Adams Published date: October 10, 2017

    9.99 is too much a month to pay for premium when really the only difference is you can play music offline. Even then it's only a small selection of the songs you liked on the stations you download. I've had Pandora for years and I'm disappointed with the fees associated with simply wanting no commercials. It's gotta be another alternative to Pandora that's less expensive, or even free! Full Review

    Using premium and have NO regrets. Smooth playing streams or after downloading. Unlimited playlists and unlimited skips and repeats. Deep breath.. I truly hate saying this but this even beats Amazon's Prime Music program. Which I also love but not like this. Full Review

    Spent forever trying to get through the sign in phase just to be told they were performing server repairs and I had to wait... Very frustrating. I have used the app before on other devices and like it but why do I have to have an account? (Besides them being able to spam my email?) Great app, but getting started is such a hassle it's hardly worth it. Full Review

    Never had any issues with Pandora, two months after I subscribe to the $10 a month charge now I can't use it. It is auto skipping every song and going on to the next one without playing anything. For something I pay for every month, there's no reason this should be happening. If it's not fixed, I'm canceling everything Full Review

    Good other than making the widget a 4x2 size, especially when the 2nd row is blank..... Why eliminate the 4x1 and force a half screen widget that does nothing but take up space?? Dumb move. Full Review

    Great app, great idea. Only issue is that some songs on my playlist ended up being blocked due to radio only. Also, offline play does not play selected song, plays 4songs down for some reason. Other than that, very happy with the app Full Review

    Glitchy. Need to uninstall and re-install to get it to work. Frustrating, especially since I pay for the premium service. Wish it functioned consistently. When I've reported issues via email I never received a response. Full Review

    I hate the two ads that appear before I can choose my station when first loading the app. I also wish it didn't automatically play my last station. I would have rated it much higher otherwise as I really love Pandora and the music it plays. Full Review

    Undeniably the best music app, paid or not, Pandora is the best. If I might suggest a switch or button that could toggle whether the specific artist's songs were only to play, or maybe a feature that allows a user to choose specific artist or songs that would not play. !!!Please consider including these in a future update, it would be a big help!!! Please respond also. Full Review

    Crashes and turns off five seconds after starting it, over and over again. No matter how many times I update and/or reinstall. It keeps doing it randomly. Great app if I could listen to the music more than a 5 second go at a time. Please fix. Full Review

    I love this app! It is so easy to use and it's free. You can make many stations and you can like or unlike as many songs you want to. The only thing is that there are ads and you can't skip over 6 songs per hour. Full Review

    Jeff Morgan Published date: October 13, 2017

    Goodbye Pandora. You were great until every 2 songs was followed by 2 long ads. If you change stations, 2 more ads before music. Open the app while music is playing? Another ad you can't stop. I'm fed up. Full Review

    Generally, I love Pandora! My only issue is one that is more of a technical issue that I could use some help with. Whenever I am ready to turn Pandora off, I ALWAYS go to settings and sign out. However, I find evidence later that Pandora has been running the entire time I thought I was signed out.🤔 This has been happening every time I use Pandora for the last 6 months or so. Am I doing something wrong? Please help!! 😕 Full Review

    I woke up this morning and my Pandora is now premium. What? I hope you don't have my credit card info because I don't know how to change it back and I didn't ask for it. Is this a free trial I didn't intentionally initiate? Full Review

    I love Pandora. My bf first had it downloaded on his mobile phone. We listened to it all the time. I then decided to download it. I'm in love! But lately, it is constantly crashing. So much so it's really frustrating me. When it crashes, it stops the song and a new one starts. I can't obviously replay the song. So it really sucks. I hope Pandora fixes the issue. Full Review

    I like how u can listen to the different genres but when it comes to artist it plays song from different artists. when u search up an artist or genre it switches on u and I dislike that. But all though that i love Pandora and i hope u can fix some of the problems with the app. Full Review

    Something wrong with your app. Commercials wont play on lock screen. Or play the next song. Skips all my favorite songs and uses my free skips automatically. Extremely frustrating. Im considering not using it since i have to open the app and restart it constantly just to hear a song i like and have it get skipped when i didnt even push the button. Might as well buy youtube red. Probably works better. Full Review

    I love this app, but I don't know why the widget is so weird a shape. If you want a 4x2, that's great, but can you maybe do a 4x1 as well?! You are not the most important app on my phone.... Full Review

    For some reason when i can't always turn it off. Usually it pops up in the bar on the top of my screen. All I usually do is click on the X. But if I listen to it thru my car it won't let me turn it off with out turning off my phone. Full Review

    Phillip Darby Published date: October 13, 2017

    I noticed that I am having the same problem as many other Pandora users. When I start playing a song it plays audibly for the first 5 to 10 seconds and then stops. The song is still playing according to the screen but there is no sound. I have disabled all of my other apps to see if they were interfering and it is not fixed the issue I have restarted more times than I can count. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Clearly this is a problem on Pandora's end. Please for the good of your app and for the good of your customers fix this problem. Full Review

    Music selection is getting worse and Pandora has NO answer, beyond pure BS. Artists music are switched to radio only (were not previous radio contract artists!) And Pandora cannot or refuses to explain. They lay behind every other service to get new songs / albums. Not days, like described in reviews... MONTHS and still counting. This is for artists have have currently and have a contract with the music producer (by check other artists on the record label). Whatever gets Pandora is playing, I'm about fed up. I'm ready to switch to Spotify. Full Review

    Crashes frequently. 4 times in past 12 minutes. Stableish while idle, but if your phone changes wifi access point or you need to check a text, expect crashes. Annoyingly frequent ads feels like 30% of air time is ads, but it's probably better than that. Full Review

    It's okay, the problem is that I have Pandora premium so I can listen to it offline and listen to songs I've downloaded. They really need to get their licensing together because literally half the songs I want to download are unavailable.. I'm paying to listen to music and they only let me hear half of the music I want to hear. Pretty unfortunate. Other than that works great and the quality is good. Full Review
