5. Pandora

Last up on our countdown, we’re looking at Pandora. Pandora streams over WiFi or through your data connection but gives you a radio-style experience.

The best thing about Pandora is that you create your radio stations. You create them all based on a song, genre, or favorite artist. Pandora will then personally curate that station’s songs to what you initially chose.

You can customize your created stations by pressing the thumbs up or thumbs down button to indicate liking or your dislike of a song. Dislike a song, and the station will never play that again. Like a song, and you’ll hear that song back, but it will also try to pull in similar songs.
