First Look: Pandora Brings Their Streaming Music App to Android

mytouch_widget_400Today saw a great 1-2 punch in Android software announcement!  First it was Facebook, and now it’s Pandora.  The internet radio service has come to Android and the early reactions are rather positive.  We’re hearing it is “super fluid” with “no buffer times” even over EDGE. Look Ma! The app includes a widget too!

Pandora Radio is your own FREE personalized radio now available to stream music on your Android phone. Just start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs or classical composers and Pandora will create a “station” that plays their music and more music like it. Already a Pandora user? Even easier. Just log in. Pandora on Android is fully integrated with Pandora on the web. Enjoy all your existing stations – and create new ones right from your Android phone. – Pandora on Android

Thanks for the tip Andon!

    I agree this app is awesome, one of the best streaming music apps so far, much better then last.fm. Plus the widget adds a great amount of control just from the desktop.

    Doesn't skip (like how other apps buffer, play, buffer, then play during a song) at all on an edge connection with "normal audio quality" selected. Awesome! Widget is fast and responsive and has a small memory footprint.

    You know what,to hell with Pandora.I remember when Android had its debut,so many of these big names didn't give Android a chance and they said all negative things about it.Now they are eating their words.They have to join the bus,else they'll be left behind. Pandora,facebook and the likes,shame on you…

    The last thing Pandora said to me was "you're not in the US, goodbye". So screw them.

    The MixZing player app for Android can claim exactly the same recommendation-based system if that's what you want. Works for me.

    Says my device isn't supported, apparently because I'm using a Hero rom. This is stupid. Good luck if you've got a real Hero. Oh, well, Pandora always repeats songs anyway, and I can't ever find my favorite artists from which to create stations. Boo, Pandora.
