Awesome! - This app is great. Growl is a really nice thing, so that your notification center does not get clogged up. No bugs for me running Mountain Lion, so there’s that. Overall, a really great app. Also disables the ads in pandora AND takes off that stupid song limit, which means unlimited fast forwarding through songs that you hate. I love the feature that syncs it with your keyboard, so that the rewind is Like the song, and alt+rewind dislikes the song. I have had no bugs, and no problems using it. It fits perfectly into the bar on top, and does everything that it says. Great App!
Pretty nice, but... - A little warning to everybody considering a purchase of this app: You should consider it abandoned. There are a couple of issues, including some bugs that haven't been addressed for months. On top of this the developer's web site (and with it all support channels) is offline for some months now and the Support email link insode the app doesn't yield an answer. But now my actual review: This app does what the developer says it should do, it's definitely the best non-web Pandora player that I've seen, it's worth every cent, and it doesn't require a lot of system memory - which is, sadly enough, not a given nowadays. There's a bug though that's actually quite severe: It doesn't really like to be paused. If you have it sit there while paused for too long it starts acting up. This might have to do with the song not being cached all the way to the end and Pandora ending a session before you continue to play, but it is still not exactly a pleasing experience. And if you happen to press pause very close towards the beginning or end of a song you're in real trouble: The song will start playing again, in a second audio session as it seems, while the original stream still continues playing. Pressing pause, or skip, or any other button for that matter, will not help much either. The original stream might skip, but the second one will simply continue on. The only way to end this is to quit and restart the app alltogether. This is just lazy programming and testing and I have a hard time to let something this severe (and easily reproducible) slide. There are also a couple of other things that bug me: The first and least important is that there's no support for Mountain Lion's Notification Center. This app supports Growl, but I personally don't like Growl at all and prefer to at least have the option to use Notification Center. The second thing I don't quite like is that there's absolutely no support for managing Artist or Track Seeds. This might not be the developer's fault, Pandora might simply not offer an API for this, since they don't even offer full support for this in their own apps! But the fact that I always have to go to Pandora's web page to manage the Seeds for my stations isn't pleasant. The last and most important thing I don't like is the overall feel of the app. It's nice, but it's not beautiful. Animations feel a bit clunky and clumsy, some icons are badly designed and don't tell very well what they are supposed to do, and the whole user interface needs a bit more love to make it look and feel less unfinished and more polished and seamless. Or in one short sentence: This app does its job, it has the potential to be something really good, but it's a bit buggy, it's not exciting and lacks that certain something.

no support - The App should work as soon as its installed, I cant even open it from my dashboard. The worst is the website for help is unavaible?
So far so good. - So far so good. Just installed with no issues, linked to my account just fine, and have been bouncing around on different stations to find what I like. Awesome features too. :) Good player.
Works great! - Not much else to say
So Much Easier! - This app makes listening to Pandora so much easier! First of all you do not have to worry about closing the tab or the browser. Second, it is always available within two clicks. Lastly it is a great design. No problems!
Liked it, but it stopped working - Scratch this review - looks like Pandora is having issues. I assume the app is working fine.
