Review by SmittyofDHS

Great App! - I've downloaded quite a few of these and always passed on this one becasue of the old reviews. I got to say this is the best so far. I do have an issue with the album art not showing up while behind a corporate firewall, but that's understandable. Great work on the app and I highly recommend it.

Review by monstroclassicist

stops after playing 2 or 3 songs - Not sure how to get this to play consistently. This is clearly not a intuitive application. Do you have to be a computer programmer or app specialist in order to listen to music with this Pandora music box program. I find it incredibly annoying that I purchased something, and now cannot use it.

No AirPlay support - I can use AirPlay to stream to speakers from my iPhone, but not from my computer. Please, add this feature.

Review by Deverind

no longer works. Please fix! - this was a great app that no longer works. It only plays one song before stopping. Then you have to manually switch channels and it will play 1 more. Sooooo annoying and now rendered useless. I wonder if the dev is reading these comments? Seems like an easy fix.
