Pandora, one of the most notable apps that was missing from Windows Phone devices, is now downloadable for smartphones running the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system.
The Internet radio company released the Pandora Windows Phone 8 app Thursday, and as a bonus, Pandora also said the service will remain ad-free on Windows Phone 8 for the rest of the year.
The app functions the same as it does on other devices, but Pandora for Windows Phone 8 is visually very different from the iOS and Android versions of the service.
For starters, the Windows Phone 8 app incorporates the square, tile-like look for the main screen. Pandora for Windows Phone 8 also features a "Live Tile" icon on the phone's home screen that displays what is playing on Pandora. Users can also pin individual radio stations from their Pandora account onto their device's home screen.
