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.

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.

I love Pandorajam, love it!
And, thanks so much for the insight about Hear. My PJ stopped working two weeks ago and I couldn't figure out why, didn't have hours to chase it until yesterday. Found these comments yesterday, updated Hear, success!

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!

Anyone else having trouble hiding PandoraJam? I press cmd-H, the window becomes inactive, the application "next in line" becomes active, but the window simply does not go away.

Else, PJ = teh awesome!

Yeah, me too, SSNICKERER. Good catch. I usually don't mind that bug though because I'm almost always running Think to focus on just one or two apps anyway.

Similarly, last.fm scrobbling of thumbed-down songs occurs regardless of the preference setting.

Thanks for the update, Bitcartel, but the issue still persists: if "Tag recording with album artwork" is NOT selected, the artist and song title is added to iTunes under the same field (Name). Also, the album title is not tagged at all.

Workaround for users who prefer to apply their own higher quality album art is to keep "tag recording with album artwork" selected in PandoraJam, then manually remove the PJ applied coverart while in iTunes, and reapply higher quality album art with iTunes or the tagging app of your choice.

Still no 64bit love either :(

After months of flawless performance, PandoraJam is giving me problems.

1. Does not auto load my user account and stations unless I specifically open Pandora.com via my browser (Firefox or Safari) and sign into the pandora.com website first. I then have to close the browser and re-open PJ. If I don't login via the browser first, PJ stays in the "new user" state and doesn't respond to attempts to login from within the program. Very annoying!

2. Song and artist info are garbled together in the “Song” field in iTunes; this makes it necessary to manually edit each recorded item and separately download cover art too. Ugh!

3. Sometime iTunes will not auto open even if the songs from PJ are set to auto record.

4. App does not respond to clicks on the menu (i.e. thumbs up, thumbs down, skip song, etc.).

5. Tons of errors in Console (but that's nothing new; previously I just ignored them because the app worked fine). Ex. 8/3/09 2:49:52 PM PandoraJam[5113] *** -[WebHTMLView sendNullEvent]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0xd849db0 or 8/3/09 3:01:09 PM [0x0-0x24d24d].com.bitcartel.pandorajam[5248] AtomicParsley: option `--genre' requires an argument.

All of these things used to work properly prior to this version. I do not have a PandoraOne account and wonder if these bugs are due to the implementation of new features for PandoraOne users.

I wish I'd kept my previous version. Does anyone know where to download the older, more stable versions?
