If you are familiar with Pandora, then I can tell you that this app is a good version of the web based Pandora for your phone. Once you log in, it syncs with your account and shows all of your stations.

Pandora allows you to listen to music for free - however, you cannot choose the specific song that you listen to. It works by asking you to specify either songs or artists that you like. Then, it creates a custom radio station tailored to those preferences. It learns your tastes when you vote on songs by indicating either a "thumbs up" or a "thumbs down." From those indications, the stations becomes more closely tailored to your preference.

You can have multiple radio stations, and you are allowed to skip several songs per hour (although it is not unlimited).

However, after you use up all of your skips, you can just change to a different station, and then you get more skips for that hour. You can also upgrade to "Pandora One" for a $4.99 monthly fee. That gives you unlimited listening with more skips and no ads (although, in my opinion, the ads in the free version are not too frequent or intrusive) however, there is still a "skip" limit with "Pandora One."

There is also the option to purchase a one day pass of Pandora One for $0.99. That might be something to consider if you are having a party and want to use Pandora music without any ads.

This is a good app and service for someone that has specific tastes in music, and is happy listening to a random selection of songs similar to those interests. If you are looking for something that allows you to pick the exact song you want to listen to, then this is not the app for you.

The app now includes an alarm function that you can set for a specific time to start playing music from a specific station that you want to wake up to. Conveniently, it allows you to specify which days of the week you would like it to work on (for example, only on weekdays). It also has a snooze function that you can specify duration for.

There is also a "sleep timer" that allows you to set the app to stop playing music after a certain time interval (currently 15, 30, or 60 minutes) so that the app doesn't play music all night while you sleep.

Pandora is a great app on Kindle Fire. Works very similiar to the program used on my PC. The only thing missing is a sound system to go with it, but it sounds very good using headphones,and this new speaker that I;mgoing to try out. Having it on Kindle Fire is great as I spend a lot of time in doctor's offices or hospital, and having my music with me is priceless.

This has to be one of my favorite apps! I like being able to find the genres of music that I like and the artists and make stations that are to my liking. I don't even mind the ads! I grew up listening to my transistor radio in high school and this is better!

What can I say. I just discovered Pandora and I love being able to have just the music I want. there are some commercials but so what, not anymore than you would get on a radio station,(if as many) and you get just what you want.

I downloaded this app for my Kindle Fire. I can now listen to whatever music I am in the mood for when I am on my Kindle. Even better, it was a free app! Very easy to download, just took seconds.

This app allows me to have all of the music I enjoy listening to right at my fingertips! No more purchasing CD's!
