I agree. I love fresh air, clean air. spring air. Not Adobe Air.I need to keep my Mac clean and reduce the risk of malware and slowdowns.

It says here it's free but actually it's not free. You must upgrade to Pandora One to use the Pandora desktop application.

Two things: 1. Over five years after putting up a note saying "we're working hard to bring Pandora to [Canada]," no results or any change in the statement. I don't call that "working hard," I call that lying. Luckily I can work around it. 2. Requires Adobe Air? Yeah, no thanks. I'll stick with PandoraMan.

After years of saying that about NZ... It's now available in NZ!! They can only work as hard as the record labels...

I'm very pleased about NZ and hope that it leads to other things ... Canada has a great music scene that could benefit from this service but we do okay with other things (like our CBC3 radio/internet service that is all Canadian indie music ...). I'll try to be optimistic but I think they should rephrase that line (esp. after five years+) to either put the blame on evil record companies or admit they're not "working hard" but instead think our market is too small for them.

I stopped using this app when I discovered it was preventing my iMac from sleeping, even after the app was closed! The only way I could get the computer to sleep according to the settings in System Preferences - Energy Saver was to restart the computer. I suspect the culprit is actually Adobe AIR.

After I downloaded this app, I noticed it was an Adobe Air app. I should have read Cowicide's comment. I've deleted this app and now I'm deleting it form my phone and iPad too. Jeez, how can a developer claim to be responsive to Mac users and expect us to install more Adobe software when most of us are trying to eliminate the use of Flash.

Just got this note in an email from Pandora mentioning their redesigned web site: "We've removed the listening limit for Pandora. You can now listen to Pandora as much as you'd like for free."

Had potential, but unlike the iOS app, this app ONLY works if you pay first -- deleted!
