When it's working, PandoraJam is fantastic. It's paid for itself many times over in my mind, by helping me discover new music and turning me on to new bands without the added burden of having to run a browser in order to use the Pandora.com service.
That being said, there are some quirks that you should be made aware of:
-Not compatible with ClickToFlash
-BetterPrivacy (Firefox addon) needs to be carefully configured to keep PandoraJam running smoothly.
-Flash Player's Settings Manager needs to be carefully configured to keep PandoraJam running smoothly.
-Little Snitch needs to be carefully configured to keep PandoraJam running smoothly.
If you're the least bit privacy conscious and feel the need to clean your system's cache, you're going to notice some weirdness as far as PJ is concerned. Tips:
-ClickToFlash. Turn it off while PJ is running; it's too much trouble to run simultaneously.
-In BetterPrivacy, make sure you protect the pandora.com folders and the settings.sol folder. Unfortunately, you'll also have to allow clearspring super cookies for the PJ app to run.
-Go to the Flash Player Settings Manager here:
Follow these tips here:
-In Little Snitch, Allow TCP connections (for PandoraJam) through ports 443 and 80 on everything PJ asks to connect to except: google-analytics, onestat, doubleclick, and beacon.
4 out of 5 stars because the dev is not very responsive to support questions. Nevertheless, Enjoy!
