This is a GREAT program to listen to Pandora but it is NOT a great program for recording Pandora and importing the tracks into iTunes. The big problem lies with the NEW codec that Pandora is using to stream music. As of 2007, Pandora uses AAC+ and streams at 64 bps. AAC+ is a GREAT codec but unfortunately iTunes does NOT support it NOR can you add it via Perian etc. Yes, you can play back the AAC+ tracks in iTunes BUT at with POOR audio quality. All the treble is GONE. (iTunes can play back the AAC+ tracks BUT at a low 22050 sampling rate. POOR). If you want to play back the AAC+ tracks properly (with all the treble at the 44100 sampling rate), you will need to use either VLC or Songbird. Ideally, PandoraJam should have an OPTION to convert the recorded AAC+ tracks into regular AAC files (or MP3 files) BEFORE importing them into iTunes. It does NOT. P.S. To my knowledge, there are NO easy to use programs on the Mac that will convert these AAC+ tracks into regular AAC tracks. (Audialhub, Switch or QT will not do it). But you can do it via the command line using the FAAD2 program which you can install via fink or darwinports. FAAD2 will convert the AAC+ tracks to WAV files. You can then use any Mac audio conversion to convert the WAV files into MP3, regular AAC files etc.

Unfortunately, it is dead. Wondershare AllMyMusic for Mac apparently is a goof replacement.

I love this app and after doing a clean install of 10.9 I came here to download a fresh copy just to find that development has stopped on the app??? If you click on the link to the devs site this was apparently done as a result of pressure from Pandora? Anyway this software has been one of my favorites and I hate to see it go.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was by your product. I've used Jaksta, love that as well, but for the price I went with PandoraJam. Definitely recommend this product, well done developer!

This review sounds like a love-hate relationship, but that's what it pretty much is :-) I felt I owed to increase my rating as I have been using PandoraJam for 6+ months now and it works like a charm. Records everything and gives no issues whatsoever. The updates from the dev have been great, very happy indeed! :-)

I just bought "Jaskta" from a MU promo and it works like a charm with Pandora...dump this and go for that if you do not want to deal with lack of support this PandoraJam has.

I'm waiting for further updates to PandoraJam. As of 10/7/2012, version 2.1, PandoraJam does record Pandora streams. But it doesn't do it consistently. Jaksta is expensive - currently they are pushing you to buy the $70 version claiming it will capture Pandora and other streams. Certainly, it doesn't work with encrypted streams like Netflix or Amazon. Thus, much of it is for downloading YouTube videos. Jaksta also doesn't add the artwork like PandoraJam does. This means you have a lot of manual work to do to add the artwork.

Well, I have no idea how to edit a review I previously wrote, so this one will average the old one out. In a nutshell, the program has stopped recording out of the blue, I have troubleshooted it every way I could and have contacted the developer. Replies have neen non-existent, so what others say here is true, no developer support whatsoever. So venture forth and buy it, but be aware that a) it may or might now work b) if it does not work, your're SOOL and on your own.

Suddenly PJ stopped recording anything, I tried all troubleshooting and nothing. So I unchecked these settings: http://screencast.com/t/hZqw6k8SAV Skipped to the next song and it was recorded. Seems like a bug where everything I play, PJ thinks is already is on my collection. Hope this helps someone!

I bought this a while ago and stopped my Pandora subscription so I stopped using it in liue of Spotify. Spotify sucks for playlists and discovering new music...really, and I have tried all their apps. I came back to Pandora and was very surprised on the nice GUI improvements made on PandoraJam. It records like a champ, very easy to use, and I love the fact that shortcuts are aware system wide. The only thing I would add is fullscreen tiger support, but other than that, this is one of my favorite mac apps :-)

Technical support is non-existent. I downloaded the latest version for use with Lion 10.7.2. The application does not record Pandora music. After following all help files at their website, I emailed them three (3) times. Not a single reply to assist me with the non-recording issue. Regardless of price, if the company ignores customers, it is a useless product.
