In the 21st century, music is everywhere, thanks to Pandora. What’s not to like about a streaming music service that gives you the music you want to hear for free? Pandora Radio streams music to your iPhone and iPad. Mac users rejoice. Pandora is alive and well on our favorite Cupertino computer maker’s wares.
Almost free music is close enough.
The 99-cent Radio Station Catalog
Streaming music is everywhere. A bunch of channels are available in iTunes, but it’s Pandora Radio that owns streaming music.
Simply put, Pandora Radio is an automated music recommendation service. It streams music you want to hear using a few hundred attributes about your musical selections and tastes.
For Mac users who want to get in on the Pandora Radio craze, there are a handful of Pandora apps that make music to your ears. Literally.
For a lot less money there’s Fury, an app which brings you another Pandora Radio option to your Mac’s Menubar.
Like PandaBar, Fury resides in the Menubar and gives you one click access to your Pandora stations.
Launch Fury and use the mini-browser to log into your Pandora account.
That’s about it.
Fury just works.
And it gets you away from using Pandora in a web browser window. You can listen to Pandora Radio stations stream music while you’re working on something else.
You get all the Pandora controls you love and expect. Load stations, skip songs, rate songs, check out what’s currently playing, and do it all from the Mac’s Menubar.
Fury also works with Growl notifications and features album art in the pop down Menubar menu.
Not bad for 99-cents, right?
