Proving it can stay competitive with iTunes Radio, the streaming music service that debuted with iOS 7, Pandora Radio is busy at work bringing new features to its own customizable streaming music service.

The company released a feature update today to its iOS app bringing with it the ability to set song or artist stations as alarm clocks.

While the native Clock app in iOS can awake you to a specific song, Pandora’s station alarm clock is a nice addition to iOS and a compelling reason to use Pandora Radio even if you’re an iTunes Radio evangelist.

Pandora Radio 5.1 also brings full iOS 7 compatibility as it was previously designed for the iOS 7 but built for iOS 6,

Check out the full release notes below and download the latest version from the App Store.

What’s New in Version 5.1

• By popular demand, our new alarm clock lets you start your day with Pandora
– Pick one of your favorite stations to wake up to – if you like what you hear, you can keep the music playing
– Need a few extra minutes of shut eye? Hit snooze to catch more zzz’s

• Refreshed app design just for iOS 7

• Other small improvements and bug fixes to make your listening experience even better

    Good idea that could have been great. Why require me to open the app and turn on the alarm everyday? Couldn’t they just have made it to wake me up everyday at 7:30?


  2. Too bad Pandora 5.1 can’t turn Verizon into a decent carrier that doesn’t nickel and dime you on data.

    That’s pretty neat. You’ll hardly ever hear the same alarm. That may help you wake up sooner than later.
