500 television channels and nothing’s on. 100 radio stations and not one I can listen to for more than an hour.
It’s cheap, easy to use, out of the way, configurable, and comes with the right blend of extras to make it the most usable Pandora app for the Mac.
What’s not to like about this?
Click the PandaBar icon in the Menubar and get what’s playing, a button for Stations, a button to skip onward, duration, and like or dislike options.
Stations? One click to your customized stations. One click to select.
PandaBar features Growl notification support (nice at first, but distracting after awhile), keyboard hotkeys (and Apple keyboard for play, pause, and next).
It even works with your Apple Remote Control. No clutter. No complexity. Just Pandora when you want it. Even the panda bear icon is cute (I admit it; that’s what makes me look at an app). It’s cheap and available in the Mac App Store.
Shame on Pandora for requiring Adobe’s Flash plugin on the Pandora home page. Hey! Ever heard of HTML5, guys?
