Pandora is a music discovery service available in the US, that offers personalized music, based on what you listen to. The service has official apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Pandora++ is a tweaked version of the official iOS app, which is created by a third party developer and includes several additional features that are not available in the original app.
Since Pandora++ is not available on the App Store, it would ideally require a jailbroken iOS device in order to install the app from an external repository source such as Cydia. But in this article, we’ll demonstrate how you may install Pandora++ on your iOS device without jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad.
Install Pandora++ without jailbreak
Build Store is a third party app store that enables you to install apps from outside the App Store without having to jailbreak your iOS device. Pandora++ is available on the Build Store, and so, you can install it from here without having to jailbreak your device.
Build Store uses a paid subscription-based model, and costs $9.99 per year per device. To know more about BuildStore, check out this article.
Note: Pandora++ is a tweaked app and has the same Bundle ID as that of the official. As such, you can’t keep both the original and tweaked version of the app installed simultaneously on the same device. You must uninstall the original app in order to install the tweaked version.
The following steps will guide you to install Pandora++ on your iPhone or iPad:
- Uninstall the official version of Pandora if you already have it installed on your iOS device.
- Sign up for a new BuildStore account and register your iOS device.
- On your registered iOS device, open Safari and navigate to the Pandora++ app page.
- Tap on the Install button.
Pandora++ will be installed on your registered iOS device.
Update: Pandora++ has been removed from Build Store, so if you want to install the app on your non-jailbroken iOS device, you need to download its IPA file from the Internet (or, from the comment section below), and then install it to your device using Cydia Impactor. You can follow the detailed steps in our dedicated article here.
Note: Unless you have an Apple Developer account, Cydia Impactor uses Apple’s free provisioning profile for signing an app, which is only valid for 7 days. In order to continue using such app, you need to repeat the same process (i.e., re-sign the app using Cydia Impactor) after every 7 days.
Features of Pandora++
Once you install Pandora++ on your iPhone or iPad, you’ll unlock the following additional features within the app, even if you are a free user of Pandora:
- No Ads
- High Quality Stream
- Unlimited Skips
- Unrestricted access (Use Pandora from any location)
- No Delay Button Skip
- No 180 minutes timeout
Note: Installing an updated version of Pandora from the App Store may overwrite the tweaked version; hence, you may lose all the tweaked features provided in Pandora++.
Is Pandora++ safe to install?
Build Store’s content policy states that any application available on their third party app store “MUST NOT harm the device or device owner”. According to Build Store, the apps available on Build Store are reviewed internally for malicious code and stability. We have spoken to a company representative on the matter, and this is what he had to say: “We guarantee that using the apps from the BuildStore is safe for the gadget and users’ private data.”
However, Build Store does not claim any responsibility for any action taken against the user by original app developers (for example, disabling of accounts), for the use of tweaked apps.
