Pandora vs Spotify on a smartphone

I just purchased 'MY FIRST SMARTPHONE'. I have used both apps for years on my desktop, Spotify really has problems, lately. Pandora keeps trucking along.
Your comments are most welcome.

Pandora sent me a list of my favorites. Here are the top 5

  1. Evening Raga Radio
  2. Indian Classical Radio
  3. Raga Jaijaivanti: Drut Gat In Tintal
  4. Shivkumar Sharma/Zakir Hussain
  5. The Rolling Stones

I have never used a smartphone. :rofl:
Remember, I am old. LOL

I like pandora more than spotify. But that is just because I am a long time user of Pandora and I like that it can predict my next song. I have found a few new favorites that way. Spotify I have not spent a lot of time on as Pandora has been spot on.

The downside of pandora is availability in some countries. Canada is a no go for pandora but spotify works.


Pandora is only available in the US right now, but we are working to bring our music service to other parts of the world.

I have seen the same message for about 10 years, from my country.

I have tried it when I have traveled. I found it very friendly and straightforward.

Spotify has the possibility that it integrates very well with all my devices, especially in my car and in Linux.

Thank you for the input. Spotify once worked for me but now it does not work very well. I imagined that telling all of you that I bought my FIRST smartphone, I would have got some funny comments.

I applaud your intestinal fortitude for holding out so long. :smiley:
