I really need to start going to be earlier, so that by the time I finish “playing” on my iPhone, it’s still dark out!
Last night, I decided to look through the Music Category of the App Store and found Pandora Radio. Boy am I late to the party on this app! It’s so awesome!
I put in P.M. Dawn as the artist I wanted my Pandora radio station to revolve around. Then, for the next 2 hours, I listened to ol’ school R&B song after ol’ school R&B song thanks to Pandora totally being able to read my mind. I heard Janet Jackson, SWV, New Edition, Babyface, Tevin Campbell, Keith Sweat, Blackstreet, Aaliyah, TLC, Bobby Brown, Prince, After 7, Soul 4 Real, and so much more! And these were full songs, too! Unbelievable!
I have the choice of rating the selection “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” and based on my feedback Pandora can better select other songs for me. Additionally, Pandora also gives me artist info and an explanation as to why they chose each song for me. I can bookmark songs and artists, email my station, start a new one, or buy a specific song from iTunes.
And all this was free! I’m not really sure how Apple makes is money from this app. Do people really like a song and then decide to purchase it from iTunes? I don’t know any of those people like that, lol. Also, I’ve read that one of the limitations is that you can only skip 6 songs per hour. I may have skipped one or maybe 2. Pandora chose my playlist very well, so no need for that. Just wonderful, commercial-free songs that took me back to high school!
