The Pandora One desktop app is a program that works with the Pandora subscription music streaming service.

Music streaming services are incredibly popular, and anything that makes the interface easier to use is usually beneficial. Pandora's answer to Spotify's desktop app is Pandora One. It is a great music app that ups the quality of the music you listen to while giving users a wider range of songs to choose from. It's still Pandora at its heart, but it makes the entire process of streaming a little bit more user-friendly. This is a great application for anyone who uses Pandora or who enjoys music in general. There's not a lot of bells and whistles, but it is a solid streaming platform.

So, what's the downside to this fabulous program? It's part of a subscription service. It will work as long as you are paying for Pandora, but you won't be able to use it for free. It's hard to say if the program is really any better than the other paid streaming services out there, or if Pandora One actually adds much value to the pre-existing subscription. The software exists and it works, but it's not necessarily something that anyone needs.

If you're already paying for Pandora, downloading this program should be a given. It makes for a better listening experience and you'll get more out of your subscription. If you are using a free version of Pandora, though, it's hard to say that this program will convert you to a paid user. In the end, this is a nice addition for people who don't mind paying for it, but not something that free users are going to necessarily clamor to have.
