I'm a little leery of this program. Run this program with Little Snitch, and you will see that this program wants way too many networks connections. I'm not comfortable allowing it to connect to unfamiliar servers.

Checkout Pianopub and see if avoids too many networks.

I am having a MAJOR viewing issue. I can not create a new channel cause the program has shifted weird. I have a screen shot but looks like I cant put it on here. Oh well. But this is a great program that I use all the time and it only happen when the new update came out. Looking forward to having this fixed.

Really like this but one thing has been bothering me.
And that one thing is that no matter what you set in the preferences, PandoraBoy always changes the volume when you use the mac remote.

This is really annoying because when I push volume up or down, both the system volume AND PandoraBoy's volume change, usually making it either way too loud or dead quiet.

Works for me. I like it more than PandoraMan because of the Apple remote interface built-in, plus the window of recently-played tunes is a nicer viewing option than scrolling back, back, back through the regular Pandora interface.

Besides that, for some reason PandoraMan started launching Safari whenever it was launched. Strange. I don't have any problem like that with PandoraBoy.

Would like to possibly see a mini player option like iTunes has available. I don't know if this is possible, since all these apps basically appear to be the regular Pandora player inside of a shell with added features.

Check out Pianopub. It has a small window like mini player.

I really like how PandoraBoy works, especially with the keyboard shortcuts. Unfortunately, whenever I run the program it ends up using 50% of more of my CPU on my 2.0 GHZ Macbook. :(
