anyone with an smart might want to download this app. its also just on the web http://www.pandora.com/

you type in your favourite artist and itll play a song by them then play songs from similar artist and you can give it a thumbs up and add it to your station or a thumbs down and go back to another song by your selected artist and start again.

pretty good way to find artists you'll love that you may have not heard of.




About Pandora®
When was the last time you fell in love with a new artist or song?

At Pandora, we have a single mission: To play only music you'll love. (OK, we've added comedy as well so we're also up for playing some jokes you'll love.)

To understand just how we do this, and why we think we do it really, really well, you need to know about the Music Genome Project®.

Since we started back in 2000, we have been hard at work on the Music Genome Project. It's the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken.

Together our team of musician-analysts has been listening to music, one song at a time, studying and collecting literally hundreds of musical details on every track - melody, harmony, instrumentation, rhythm, vocals, lyrics ... and more! We continue this work every day to keep up with the incredible flow of great new music coming from studios, stadiums and garages around the country.

With Pandora you can explore this vast trove of music to your heart's content. Just drop the name of one of your favorite songs, artists or genres into Pandora and let the Music Genome Project go. It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings - new and old, well known and completely obscure - to find songs with interesting musical similarities to your choice. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you.

You can create up to 100 unique "stations." And you can even refine them. If it's not quite right you can tell it so and it will get better for you.

The Music Genome Project was founded by musicians and music-lovers. We believe in the value of music and have a profound respect for those who create it. We like all kinds of music, from the most obtuse bebop, to the most tripped-out drum n bass, to the simplest catchy pop tune. Our mission is to help you connect with the music YOU love.

We hope you enjoy the experience!




About Our Name
The name Pandora means "all gifted" in Greek. In ancient Greek mythology, Pandora received many gifts from the gods, including the gift of music, from Apollo. She was also, as we all know, very curious. Unlike those gods of old, however, we celebrate that virtue and have made it our mission to reward the musically curious among us with a never-ending experience of music discovery.


When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

Spotify vs Pandora, or how Pandora differs from Spotify

Usually, when we scrutinize an app we also try to compare it with the most famous competitors in the niche. However, this time, it is better to take a look at the closest rival and and run a competition: Pandora vs Spotify, trying to detect all pluses and minuses of both services.

Search option. There is no such option in Pandora Radio app, which means that you can’t find a particular song of a particular artist. In Spotify, you can find an artist and listen to his album. In a free version you can listen only shuffle play, yet in premium this option is available.

Replay a song. And again, in Pandora, you have to rely on the system because you simply can’t replay and listen again your favorite song. Spotify offers the feature in premium account.

Number of songs. The Spotify has more than 16 millions songs, while Pandora the app only one million. The numbers are growing, yet the the difference is obvious.

Offline mode. Only Spotify can boast with this feature, not Pandora.

Buy a song. You can easily buy a song in both apps.

Social Integration.
The Spotify is integrated with Facebook and offers you lots of social features, like share your playlist, download your friend’s playlist, see what your friends listen to live and even hide a song that you are listening right now from anyone (for in case you decided to enjoy new Bieber’s track). Pandora Radio app used to have only email sharing feature, which means you could only mail a list of songs you enjoy to your friends, now, thank goodness, you can share your musical preferences in Twitter and Facebook.

Platforms. Spotify covers almost all modern devices, including Windows, MacOS, Linux and mobile systems for IOS and Android. As for Pandora, there are Pandora app for Iphone, Pandora app for Android, for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile, however, the number of handsets is limited. Pay your attention to the fact that Pandora is a web-based platform while Spotify is a desktop app, which means that you need to install it on your PC. And if you want to enjoy your beloved tracks at work while your boss is on a coffee break, be careful with your open tabs.

Availability.
Well this question is painful for me, because both services cover little geography. Pandora mobile app can be reachable only in Australia, New Zealand, United States and United Kingdom. Spotify covers a very few countries in Europe, the USA, New Zealand, Australia and a part of Asia. The issue is connected with licence limitations, so if you live in far from the mentioned regions you won’t be lucky to enjoy the services.

New discoveries. Spotify doesn't give you any recommendations about what music you should listen, you choose among the albums of already famous artists, so there is a little chance you will hear something fresh. At the same time, music app Pandora was created to suggest you new, awesome artists, who you may have never heard before. The system knows your preferences and chooses the track according to this data, not to the popularity of one or another superstar. Moreover, Pandora claims that they will never charge musicians to promote their songs and offer them to people even if they don’t like this style.

Earnings. Both apps use the same monetization strategy, they combine Freemium + Advertisement method. Yet, they divide the income differently. Pandora relies on Ads more, the app gets 80% of income from Advertisements and only 20% from Premium accounts. In such a mode the paid account doesn’t give you many privileges, only the absence of ads. And the cost of Premium is rather low in comparison to Spotify, it’s only $4,99. While Spotify relies more on Premium account which makes free account less functional. The app gets 90% of income from subscribers and only 10% from the ads. Here, you can get the full functionality for $9,99.

Dear Skot,

I think it's really good idea to create app like Pandora and earn money. It's not so hard, but you need to make something different, something special!
Look at the article How To Make a Music App Like Pandora
