The ONLY native listening experience for Pandora Radio on the Mac! No need for a Pandora One upgrade!

• Unlimited Skips*
Unlike Pandora or Pandora One, HD pRadio altogether removes the skip limit. This means if Pandora keeps serving you music you don't like, just skip away.

• No ads**
Are ads annoying you in the middle of your stream? Don't worry, we have an ad detection system that will skip and remove detected ads from your stream so you don't have to hear them anymore.

• HD Streaming***
No more ordinary 64k AAC+ streams. Leverage your listening experience with 128kbps audio quality. If you're on a public or corporate network, you can also adjust to lower qualities to optimize your experience.

• No Flash player
HD pRadio is the ONLY native Pandora app on the Mac App Store. While other apps use Web Views that hog CPU, we use the latest networking technologies from Apple that allow for high audio streaming quality as well as low memory consumption.

• No Timeouts
Tired of Pandora timing out? With HD pRadio, we guarantee you that your stream will continue playing until you close the app.

• Menu bar widget
Conveniently control playback and view the current song directly from the menu bar.

• Customizable shortcuts
Playback can be controlled remotely with global hotkeys!
If you don't like the default shortcuts, you can customize them in preferences.

• Background playback / song notifications
Your stream stays playing even in the background, and the app will even give you a notification when a new song plays (customizable in Preferences).

If you have any feature requests, bug reports, or are experiencing issues with the app, we'd love to help at our support portal: We'll try our best to respond to your request as soon as we can.

Disclaimer: A Pandora account is necessary to use the app. An account can be created for free at

* If you skip too much, Pandora may think you're a bot and ask you to stop making requests for an hour or so. Just make sure to not skip like a bot.
** We use ad detection software to clean ads out of your stream and skip them in real-time under the hood. This method is guaranteed to remove most ads, but it is not fool-proof. If some ads are still getting through, please contact support immediately so we can improve our algorithm.
*** HD streaming is defined by 128kbps quality in the app.

Could be way better, buggy, outdated interface

Since I paid for this and its not working right anymore, I feel complelled to write this. Its great to be able to stream without ads, but this app routinley crashes, on a dailty basis. Selecting the stop icon will often trigger this. Or it will just randomly stop giving you errors until you force quit app. The interface is horribly outdated, and many stations just show a blank even if its a web know artist. I can put up with Windows 95 look, but not the bugs in this app.

Something doesn’t work right

I was happy with this app for a while. The interface is clean and it pretty much does what it says. I also liked that it allowed you to skip songs an unlimited number of times. However,for some reason almost every time I play songs with it for a while it will error out. Afer a bit you will get a slew of like 5 erros messages to close. Very annoying. They have to fix this.

Stopped working - even though I pay for Pandora

Just won’t start/log in - I even pay for Pandora monthly. Liked the app as easy to use and felt Pandora was woth the small fee of $5/month. Yet, this app won’t even log in to my account, much less play any musica now. Used to work last year. Now, nothing. :(
