    Am I missing something about this official Pandora app craze? Metro radio still seems much better to me with the unlimited skips. I don't understand why everyone is so excited..
    What you are missing is pretty obvious. Whether you like another app more is irrelevant. Lots of people like and use Pandora and have done so for years. People are allowed to be pleased with the app's arrival and it really needs no further explanation. Of course it also means someone with an investment in a Pandora setup can jump fro an Android device to IOS to Windows Phone to Windows to Mac, etc,.. Try that with a single ecosystem app....

    This doesn't happen on my 920 with metroradio?
    ...and this is relevant in what way? Whatever it is that doesn't happen probably doesn't happen on lots of apps on all sorts of platforms. How is this relevant to a thread about the Pandora app? Congratulations - you like another app. This thread is not about another app....

    Being rude to other community members probably doesn't do much for market share either . . .

    I'm not in the US either. I used a proxy and was actually able to make a Pandora account and I can use it on the browser.

    But when I try to use it on the app, it says "Not available for country/region" and my phone is set to United States.

    Chill Stephen. I was just asking if there were some things it did that I was not aware of.

    And by the way, you can do that with metro radio. It saves your channels in the regular Pandora.

    I'm kinda confused how anyone would think its not a big deal. Pandora is a top and highly used app on the android and apple phones. Pandora on windows phones is a big deal, it shows promise , that WP might just be around a long time.

    I'm very pleased with the quality of the app. I had not used Pandora for a while due to not having it on my phone. I listened to Pandora all day yesterday and had forgotten how good their playlists are. I don't know how other people are doing it but when I find a song I want to add to my Xbox Music playlists I take a screenshot and then add them when I am at my PC.

    One of the most exciting moments when I had my dev-unlocked Focus was when the 1st Pandora homebrew app was "released." Coming from iPhone, Pandora was one of my faves and most used apps.

    Got my 920 two weeks ago, so this release is awesome! Cool to login and enjoy all the same stations I would listen to on Android, and w/o the ads.! For awhile, anyway.

    Is there any way to completely kill the app where it is not playing music in the background other than hitting the pause button?
    I use StopMusic to end any music on my phone.

    The only, and biggest issue I have with this app is the random restarting on music when connected to a Bluetooth system, especially my vehicle system

    Not gonna lie, I really wish this was available for 7.x devices too. I get why Pandora made it just for WP8, but at the same time, that would have been so awesome

    Ehh, I don't see its purpose when Nokia Music is there. Can anyone tell me what it does that Nokia Music doesn't? I know it will have the benefit of being a more-popular platform and working on all WP8 devices (not just Lumia ones), but is there something Pandora has over the streaming of Nokia Music, in terms of quality/features?

    My thought when I first got my 920. After setting up and listening to many stations based on the same artists as my Pandora set up, I realized Nokia ends up playing a bunch of eclectic stuff that's not at all related to my selected artist. I'm all for diverse listening and discovering new music, but it's honestly like buying a sampler cuz you really like one song or artist, only to realize you should have just bought the single.

    Yeah, I'm the same way with Nokia Music. I WANT to love it, but it does a rather crappy job of picking relevant music. However, I only use Nokia Music offline, so without offline playlists, Pandora does nothing for me. I am never really in a WiFi area where I am listening to music other than at home, and I listen to music on my PC when I do that.

    Great for the platform... I was too happy to download it. For some reason, when I'm at work, I normally don't get to view blog posts. For some reason, I saw the post right after it was blogged and was so happy... immediately downloaded before it was possibly pulled for an unknown reason.

    I wonder if this means Pandora is coming to the Xbox.
