Pandora app review

Wake up a different way

Every once in a while, it’s good to revisit an old, favorite app — even one that might be collecting digital dust on your phone. In the case of the app for Pandora, the online radio service, the latest update brings something that could really please music lovers: an alarm clock feature. In a move that could give the service an edge (at least temporarily) over Apple’s iTunes Radio, Pandora’s lets you set an alarm, its snooze length, the station of your choice and the volume. For the alarm to work, you have to keep the Pandora alarm screen up while you sleep. And, as is the case with all clock alarms, don’t forget to plug it in. The new feature hits iOS devices first but should roll out to Android devices soon. Free, for iOS and Android; $3.99 in-app purchase for ad-free listening.
