PandoraPandora is one of those apps that once you have it, you almost wonder how you got along with out it.

No, it’s not an app that makes you more productive, or let’s you play addictive games, or communicate with family and friends.

It’s an app that can play the music you like, without actually playing your favorite songs.

OK, what does THAT mean?

Pandora is a free music streaming service that lets you search for a song, or artist, or composer that you like, and then uses that information to create a “station” that plays other songs similar to what you picked.

What’s great is that you DO hear your original request now and then, but in between, you hear lots of music that you’ve maybe never heard before, but that you’ll probably like just because it’s similar your favorite.

Because it works in this way, Pandora is sometimes referred to as a “recommendation service“.

In another “My Favorite App” video, I talked about iHeartRadio, a great radio station streaming service.  And although Pandora is also a streaming service, it’s different enough from iHeartRadio that the two should be part of your music listening app arsenal.

And that’s why I’ve added the Pandora app to my Favorite Apps list!

To give you a better idea of what the Pandora app is all about, I’ve put together this short video.  Click on the image below to take a look…
