Pandora Reaches 2 Million User Milestone

2Million iPhone UsersRecently in my article, “Pandora Spins My Hits,”  blogged about my experience using Pandora. Well it appears that I’m not the only iPhone junkie enjoying the genius of Pandora.   Last week the company announced that it had reached  a significant milestone of 2 million iPhone users!  Here is a snipit of Pandora founder, Tim Westergren’s post:

At 10:04am this morning we hit 2,000,000 registered iPhone Pandora users!

We’re hearing all sorts of wonderful feedback from listeners who are using it on their commute, jogging with it, plugging it into home audio systems…you name it. And as usual, offering all sorts of great feedback and suggestions. It’s thrilling for us to see the broader vision for Pandora take shape. Our hearty thanks for your continued support and input.

Pandora Spins My Hits

Pandora combines two things that I love – music and technology!  I’m busy! I don’t have the time I used to download songs from iTunes , then create a play list. I hardly have time to fit in my morning run, but when I do, I enjoy listening to music.  Gone are the days when I was a Napster nut – who had time to download an entire CD.  Now, I’m hard pressed to name one song in the top 40.  Needless to say my iPod playlist is certainly sad.  When Chris Brogan tweeted about listening to Pandora one day, I went straight to iTunes and downloaded the free application.  I haven’t stopped listening since I did.

Pandora is an Internet radio website, and most recently, an iPhone application that streams music to your desktop or iPhone.  It very customizable, you can define and refine the stations that are streamed to you.  Users have the ability to customize stations by genre, artist or both.  My stations are dancehall raggee, Beenie Man (raggee artist), hip hop, R&B, traditional gospel, and southern rap.  I was more than happy with 95% of the songs that were streamed to me.  There were a few that I skipped over, but all in all, the selections that were chosen were dead on.  The streams I receive are a nice mix of new music and older songs, that I will definitely add to my collection – as it needs of a lot of help.

The ability to bookmark a song on both the iPhone application and the website is easy and very convenient,  Although you cannot replay the entire song only a portion of it, you can purchase the song on iTunes or Amazon – both which I have an account with.  When you make changes to you iPhone stations or bookmark a song, it is automatically updated on your web-based account – nice! The convenience of one-click buying with both iTunes and Amazon make Pandora a must have for every iPhone owner and music lover!

Update: Pandora has reached over 2 Million iPhone users!
