It’s a bit unfortunate that Pandora never released their radio app on the BlackBerry PlayBook. Nevertheless, you can now listen to Pandora with the free 3rd party app called Apollo. Some features of Apollo include:

  • Creation of new Pandora accounts
  • Sign in with existing Pandora accounts
  • Creation/Deletion of stations
  • Bookmark management (bookmark current/recent song/artist, view/delete bookmarks)
  • Like/Dislike of songs
  • Skip current song (6 skips/hr/station)
  • Viewing of recent tracks for each station
  • Create station from current song/artist, recent song/artist, bookmark song/artist
  • Put song to sleep for one month
  • Links to browse music on
  • Sorting of stations by name or date of creation
  • Viewing of current song artist biography
  • Explanation of why current song is playing
  • Settings: audio quality, selectable backgrounds, application timeout, toggle auto-play station on app startup, statistics

The developers are also currently testing the app on BlackBerry 10. I’m a premium Pandora user and have sent them much feedback to get an app on PlayBook OS and BB10. I’m definitely thankful Apollo made the jump, kudos to them.
