Pandora for Android

The Good Pandora Radio for Android is sleek and easy to use. But more importantly, its song library is massive, and its programming algorithm works wonderfully.

The Bad Large, intrusive display ads (but that's being nit-picky).

The Bottom Line Pandora Radio is not only easy to use, but it's also scary good at getting to know your musical taste. Download it and start creating stations as soon as possible.

Pandora plays the songs you want to hear

Editors' note, July 8, 2015: See CNET's guide to Internet radio services for a more up-to-date evaluation of this service, along with an analysis of how it compares to competitors.

When you don't want to decide exactly what song to listen to, Pandora's got you coverage. The popular online music service lets you create custom radio stations based on genres of music, artists, music albums, and even specific songs.

Just like the original Web-based version, Pandora Radio for Android lets you tap into an incredible library of music to create stations based on artists or songs, browse through genre-based stations, or fire up a shuffled playlist based on your listening history. If you're already a Pandora listener, you can enter your existing log-in credentials, or you can create a new account right from the app.
