Definitely recommend. Stable, fast, easy to use, finds everything. I just wish you could name the images according to the title of the page they were downloaded from. If it had naming options I would give it 5 stars.

Highly recommended. I have used Pandora ever since John created it years ago. I recently downloaded and tried all other image grabbing software available for Mac OS X. Some were okay, some didn't work well but I found none exceeded the nice way Pandora just works - easy to use and collects the stuff I want. Also Pandora's demo version is nice because it allows you to try it and not watermark the images you download. Thank you John.

Excellent tool for finding pics and graphics that I use in my work. I used to get the "Google blocking" message as well, but found that the problem was with my ISP and not with Google nor Pandora. I do not get the message anymore and often make multiple searches at the same time.

Really cool to use!

Indispensable tool for dedicated pr0n hounds. Apple should buy this app and incorporate it into Safari's "Private Browsing" feature.

Don't buy it. It doesn't work at all.
It just says that google has blocked because of multiple connections and to reduce the number of connections and it may work again in 24 hrs.
The funny thing is, there is no place in the application to reduce the number of connections. One search causes this. I don't have multiple windows or searches going.
I did fix it by going to google and entering a code to verify that I was a human and not a bot, but then you can't use this application because it will just lock out again.
You can only use google's web site rendering this application useless.

Product and support excellent. Pandora makes collecting images from the world wide web easy. I have looked at other software but Pandora seems unique in it's ease of use and successful image collecting. My special interest is in studying and learning to identify animals and plants. Pandora has allowed me to collect hundreds of images scattered about the internet to help this learning process. Over the years I have worked with Pandora (from it's creation as NetScrape) and developer John's support has been excellent. As an example: a recent issue with the Google engine refusing to deliver was responded to immediately by John and corrected in a day with an update released in 4 days. All the best and thank you John.

Got to change your name! The music Pandora has the widespread, established use of the name, and you only create confusion by using it (even considering the possibility that you had it first).

Apparently version 2.6.3 is current (NOT 2.6.4), since this download, as well as both the application checking itself for updates and the developers website give 2.6.3 as the current version.
