Oh, too bad for me. This new update requires 10.7 and up, and I'm one OS behind. Will update soon but for others fyi. I assume it is the same great app it was before so will definitely install and use.

I am also waiting to upgrade from MacOS 10.6.8. In the meantime is there somewhere I can download the older version of this that will work with 10.6.8?

I can't speak for the developer, but the version that worked with my OS no longer works with Pandora at al, and the Pandora-OK version doesn't work with my OS. That is, the older version may work with your OS but it won't work with Pandora. There are other players available, like PandoraBoy, but Pianopub has always been my choice.

Basic. Simple. Free. Running this on Snow Leopard and Lion. Tried some of the others, including the paid ones and I like this player. Any glitches have been due to Pandora making changes, and not due to the software. The developer is responsive. And remember, this is free. No complaints. Just a thank you.

Worked great until about two weeks ago, at which time Pandora apparently changed things on their end. Now PianoPub fails to connect, generating a "TLS Handshake Error", for which there is a fix for Pianobar on which PianoPub is based but which does not apply to PianoPub. No response yet to queries to the developer, but I'm hopeful that s/he hasn't abandoned the application and will come up with a fix soon.

Just got this error. Open it and you will be asked to update to version 1.5.7. This just fixed it for me.

Delightfully simple- exactly what I was looking for!
I downloaded Pianopub, installed and launched in all of 30 seconds... logged in, and my most recently played station started right up. Running smoothly on Mountain Lion.

I love this app for Pandora. I prefer it to the Pandora One app. I have also tried PandoraBoy and PandoraJam, both of which were glitchy. My hunt for an alternate Pandora app, however, was due to the design for it to connect with Adium and set status updates. If it is at all possible to create a plugin for this (or if there is one that I cannot find), then this app will get 5 stars across the board from me.

The best desktop Pandora app out there now!

If I had one bad thing to say about it, its that the volume slider resets every time I open the application, rupturing my eardrums when I forget to take off my headphones.

Fix that, and you'll have your 5 stars from me.

Now my favorite Pandora app. Simple, direct interface and just works.

In version 1.5.3 (and maybe 1.5.4) I experienced a problem running it on Mac OS X 10.6, but the developer quickly fixed this problem with version 1.5.5. thanks!

Really nice! Stable (stayed up and running while I did any number of things), easy to use, Low use of resources and lack of need of flash (as mentioned below) are real plusses, and it's FREE!

I'm SO glad I found this!

Updated from within the app to 1.3.1 and it logged right in. Macupdate? You are behind on versions with this one.

How do I make the media keys work with Pianopub instead of starting or bringing up iTunes every time? I'm using mba 2010 and F7 (play/pause) or F8 (forward) don't work with Pianopub.

It's my first mac with the F keys mapped like that, so I'm not sure if there's something I need to set somewhere.
