I’m not a Pandora but I’ve seen a fair few requests around the web for this to appear on various Nokia platforms.

It’s now available for WP8, no ads, no limits on streaming – due to a special arrangement with MS (until 2013 ends). Android and iOS users need to subscribe $3.99 to get the same ad-free service.

It’s just out of the gate, but Pandora for Windows Phone is already the best way of listening to the service on a smartphone.

Pandora for WP8 takes advantage of WP features such as pinning your favourite stations to the start screen as well as compatibility with Kids Corner (I put Spotify there so my friends can use it without having access to the whole phone) except that this is the first version of Pandora that filters out explicit content.

The app is apparently missing lyrics  and artist biographies but TheVerge says they can’t imagine this being a deal breaker.


Cheers Muerte for the tip!
