Recently I opened my Pandora application and was greeted with a message stating that I needed to pay to continue using the Pandora desktop application. While it would have given me features such as ad-less music, I felt $36 was not worth the 12 months of music. I write free applications, after all. So after a quick inspection of the Adobe Air application that no longer functions properly, I decided it would not be terribly difficult to write my own application, so I did. I am introducing today the HazteK Software version of Pandora Desktop.
It is very basic in what it does, but it works great. It works exactly as if you had the pandora.com website open in your browser. It sits quietly in your system tray and plays back your music. Other than that, it doesn't do much. It won't show you what song is playing in a tool tip or anything like that, as there is no API for Pandora. You can view that information in the main window though. If you feel that you would like to try it out, feel free to download it and check it out. As usual, you can download it from the application's information page or directly from this post. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know by posting them to this entry.
