It is said that music is the language of the soul, making it one of the most valuable commodities and art forms in the world. It is no wonder then that there are many mobile phone applications and websites that have been created with the sole purpose of creating and distributing music tracks to humans all over the world via the internet. Pandora Internet Radio (also known as Pandora Radio or simply Pandora) is one of the best internet streaming applications available on the market at the moment.
Pandora is available both as a free and premium service, and is featured on major mobile platforms such as Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, Blackberry and Windows platform.

The design of the Pandora Internet Radio app is intuitive and easy to use. A typical user’s journey usually begins with keying in the name of your favorite artist, music track or album.
