Hello Pandora One

Exciting news! Pandora is now offering Pandora One, an upgrade to their free service. For $36 you get high quality streaming at 192kbps, no pesky adverts, and the timeout is extended from 1 hr to 5 hrs.

This is great news for PandoraJam users as PandoraJam fully supports the new high quality streaming, and your recordings will be in MP3 at 192kbps. If you use the basic free Pandora.com service, music will be broadcast (and thus recorded) as HE-AAC at 64kbps (as mentioned before). Unfortunately, as a few users have noted, some iPod shuffles seem to struggle with playing back the HE-AAC files, so there’s another reason to upgrade to Pandora One.

If you like Pandora.com, please upgrade to support them as they grow their start-up, and send them an email to let them know that you love using PandoraJam. I know from user feedback that PandoraJam, this teeny weeny Indie Mac app, has helped them retain a few listeners over the last two years 🙂 Namaste…

    Quick question: I upgraded to Pandora One, but now I get odd behavior in Pandorajam. Specifically with recording: some stations record fine, others don’t, and some record intermittently. If I empty the cache that seems to trigger recording again for a while, but then it will quit recording (although the recording icon is on and Pandora is playing) I think it is probably random, but my jazz stations are the ones that seem to have the most problems recording into iTunes.Has any one else reported this, and any fix ideas? Is this related to Pandora One?
