The Pandora Radio application for the iPhone and Android phones has every element the Pandora Internet Radio has, but on the go.

Pandora Radio for the iPhone allows you to log into your Pandora account and access all the stations you have already created. It also lets you to organize them by the date you created the station or in alphabetical order. You can edit stations as well as create new ones directly in the application. My favorite part about Pandora Radio is it takes the song or artist you chose and only plays songs that are similar to that song or artist. Unlike the normal radio where you hear songs you love once every so often, Pandora creates a station of hundreds of songs you’ll love.
You can create stations by choosing a song, artist or CD you like and simply typing it into the search bar. Another way to create stations is to search by genre and select preset stations Pandora has created for you. Once you have made a station there are buttons that allow you to rate and bookmark the song or artist, buy songs directly from iTunes or email the station to your contacts. By turning your device sideways, to landscape mode, you can flip through songs that have played on that station and replay any song you’d like to hear again. The application lets you skip and pause the station, the only catch in the free version of the application is after you skip a certain number of songs there are short advertisements between songs. Although, you can get an advertisement free version of the application for $3 a month or $36 a year.
