Pandora app lands on Windows Phone: worth the wait

Pandora app lands on Windows Phone: worth the wait
Pandora has finally launched a native application for its music streaming service on Windows Phone and the wait was worth it. The application is beautifully made and comes with Live Tile support.

Pandora’s Windows Phone app is very polished, ad-free and unlimited, which is great. In comparison, on other platforms Pandora has a 40-hour monthly limit that is neatly absent on Windows Phone.

You can pin your favorite stations to the home screen, and in the menus you have both your favorites and recent stations. Neatly, in Kid’s Corner mode the app automatically filters the content. Great. You can get the app for free at the link below.

Download Pandora on Windows Phone

The fastest growing platform is windowsphone. Instagram is on the way. April or May.

Its about time .. after all the time that they have denying they were not goign to make a WP app. Downloaded it earlier and tried it out. It was good, but I like using Metroradio pro still.

Even though I prefer iHeartRadio, Windows Phone getting Pandora is great for music fans. Now all Windows Phone needs to do is get Instagram, along with Sprint getting Windows Phone, and I think my next phone could very well be a Windows Phone.

This is exactly what MS needs, quality apps over quantity that play to the strengths of the WP platform. Don't worry about how many apps are in the ecosystem, instead focus on the 50 or so 'big apps' that everyone uses and make sure they're better on WP than any other platform. I love that I can pin a few favorite stations right the home screen.

That's one thing I like about WP, when I use Tunein, I pin my most used stations on my home screen which is sweet...I still like Jelly Bean and iOS too, but Tunein on my WP is probably the best experiance..
