Adobe AIR Opens the Pandora Box

Posted by Charles | June 5, 2008 .

I mean it literally. Pandora is one of many startup music services. They’ve got a huge music library and it’s an excellent way to discover music. They also claim to be one of the larger user bases for online music. It was all in browser but it changed by releasing Pandora Desktop, on Adobe AIR.

The UI of this AIR application is very simple and robust without intrusive features. You login to your Pandora account and all the channels you have are just there.

Truth is, this little guy is pretty simple. It’s just a way to pull Pandora out of a browser window and make it accessible with a single click from the Windows tray or Mac dock. We’ve built in quick access to common Pandora features from the tray/dock menu (pause, change stations, etc). If nothing else it ensures that you’ll never accidentally browse away from Pandora and lose your stream.

And of cause, there will be advertisements. Well, they’ve got to pay their bills.
