Pandora 2.0, Listen to Internet Radio on the iPhone

Out of all the iPhone apps out there, there is no denying that Pandora, which was recently updated to version 2.0, is amongst the well-liked, and proof of that is the fact that Times Magazine gave it the most popular iPhone app of 2008 award. Even though Pandora will not cost you a thing, there is a catch: it no longer works outside of the US of A, which is a crying shame since America is not the only place in the world where the iPhone is popular.

Pandora explains: “We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.”

Moving on, let’s see what the new Pandora 2.0 has to offer to US citizens. The first thing you will notice is that there is a 30-second preview available for all your bookmarked songs as well as artist and song info. You will also notice the CoverFlow song history view, the ability to use just one song to set up a custom station, share your favorite stations via email with your friends, and the much awaited progress bar. Pandora users have been complaining for quite some time now that once a tune starts there is no progress bar; Pandora has beautifully addressed this problem and added a bonus – once the song starts you get a thumbs up and a thumbs down icon; clicking either will inform Pandora if you like or dislike that tune. According to the thumbs up/down data you feed Pandora 2.0, will be used for future recommendations. Also, whenever Pandora recommends a certain song it will also display the reason for doing so.
