Pandora AIR application!

I really like AIR applications because they have the advantages of websites while making them feel a lot more like standalone applications. They are also entirely cross-platform. One that I discovered recently is the Pandora application. It still works like the website, retrieving the music on the website, but what I really like about using it in AIR is that I never accidently close the wrong browser window and stop the music. You can check out Pandora Desktop here or learn more about Pandora in general here.

Description of Pandora:

Pandora is an online radio station where you can choose what kind of music you want to listen too. It is entirely free.

I tried this today, unfortunately it's currently only available for users in the USA. They do say, however, that they are trying to overcome this problem!

I absolutely love Pandora. It doesn't hiccup like streaming radio can (on itunes). You simply enter a few artists that you like (or your favorite songs) and pandora (using its intuitive music genome) learns what kind of music you like. It will introduce you to new artists.

If you like it, give it a "thumbs up" (and Pandora learns it!) or give it a "thumbs down" (and pandora learns what kind of music you dont like).

Thank you very much for this great tip. I just went to check this out and instantly loved it. I wish I'd heard about this a long time ago.

This tip is a true gem and one that is enough on its own to recommend your blog to everyone I know.

the only problem is you now have to pay to use the desktop app. "Pandora One" costs $36 a year.
