Pandora Launches Adobe Air Desktop Client

Free Internet radio service Pandora just launched an Adobe Air desktop client (Windows and OS X). At first blush, I wasn’t so impressed – the visual footprint is rather large, so why not just leave Pandora running in a Firefox tab? Kevin Tofel asked how it runs minimized (or hidden), and I discovered a nice little contextual menu making the app worthwhile. While I generally listen to XM Online these days, I’d likely visit Pandora more frequently if they include ‘next track’ and volume adjustment menu items.

  1. After reading this, I’ve been trying Pandora – it seems cool but I can’t get it to focus on one band like I can with AOL Radio (they have an All Metallica station). Decent alternative though.

    I hear AOL Radio is adding CBS Radio affiliates including news, sports, talk, etc. Also, they’re adding track skip (source: their own ads on the service).
