AndroidAppADay: Pandora

Do you like internet radio? I know I do, and that’s why I could not live without Pandora on my Droid. The app is as full featured as the full, web-based version allowing you to setup radio stations and rate songs based on how you like them.

Pandora’s big hook is that it is based on the music genome project which means that Pandora will determine what kind of music you would like to hear based on how you rate the songs you listen to. In order to use the app, you will need a Pandora account and then you’re set listening to music.

After you’ve got your account, it’s as simple as telling Pandora what music you like. In the above screenshot, I told Pandora I liked Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” and it assumed I liked “Yellow” from Coldplay as well. If the choice is correct, I’d recommend you push the thumbs up, if wrong push thumbs down. Each of the choices you make are sent back to Pandora so they can better understand your music tastes. Very cool.

This app has replaced the radio in my car, in that I have an adapter that allows me to output the music playing on my phone to the car stereo making Pandora that much more awesome. It’s music anywhere and it’s free (if you have a data plan and 3G connection). How could you possibly say no to that?

Pandora is currently available on the Android Market.
