Today, the Internet is abuzz with a range of user-oriented music and radio applications offering superb services. This leaves us in and a great dilemma as it’s very difficult to decide the best among the rest! Some of these apps are fast climbing the stairs of popularity among the music lovers and have already become a global phenomenon.
We bring to you one of such applications with a heavenly name PANDORA RADIO APP. It works as uniquely as its name sounds. It has interspersed several aspirations of a music enthusiast into a single platform , thus providing a subtle and unique experience at your fingertips.
Let’s start talking about its pros first.The app lets you centre a number of similar songs , artists , melodies , soundtracks, ballads etc. at a single place. To be precise, if you search for a song, it brings together all the similar songs, melodies etc. at a single station. Pandora works like an artificial intelligence and thus sorts out the music according to your taste and preferences. The more you use it, more familiar it becomes with your music choices and you get the all the tracks you might like automatically.
Sometimes, you have this innate urge to wake up to your favourite songs and melodies. Well, Pandora has answered your prayers as it comes with an integrated alarm and snooze button which plays your favourite station to wake you up!.Pandora also shows lyrics on the screen automatically.Also, you can bookmark the songs you liked. The app comes bundled with an ability to share your choices on social media.
Now , its biggest con is that if you do not want to subscribe to its subscription which is fairly high at 4 dollars a month, you will have to deal with a no. Of pop up advertisements and video ads which ate pretty much a hindrance to your experience.
Another big anomaly is the track quality. The bit rate is fairly low in the free version. Hence, in terms of sound quality , it will be a very average experience for you unless you switch to the paid version of this application known as PANDORA ONE.
Even the song skipping has been kept very limited. One cannot make more than 6 skips per hour in the free version. And therefore, Pandora tries it’s level best to make you switch to its paid version which offers unlimited skips. Plus, the paid version provides unlimited replays of the songs which remain bounded in the free version.
The audio advertisements which come as a part of the song you are hearing are a great nuisance too!
Concluding the fight between its viability as the perfect music app, we can only say that if you can go for the paid version and are a fan of customisation , this is the app to go to!
