Primarily, listeners use Pandora to create stations based on favorite artists and tracks. But if you're looking for even more variety, you can try one of Pandora's many genre-based stations.

Hit the expand key in the top right to get info about the artist, quick facts about the track, and even song lyrics when available. The slider at the top also conveniently lets you access previous tracks in case you want to reread.

Pandora profiles keep track of your bookmarks, likes, and connections. You can edit it right from the mobile app and even import your Facebook profile picture.

You can follow other users and view their profiles. Seeing the new stations that friends create is a great way to discover new music for yourself.

If you're not a Pandora One subscriber, then be prepared for a lot of display and video ads. Some are smaller leaderboard-style ads near the bottom of the screen, while others are huge pop-ups that almost completely cover the album art.

In a recent update, the app added a handy new feature called Alarm Clock, which wakes you up with a station of your choosing. You can snooze the alarm, which starts a countdown on the screen to when the alarm will sound again.
