Overall, I think that Pandora is better than Jango even though both offer great services for listeners to choose from. I like Pandora since you can choose your favorite songs and then let the device go from there in picking songs related to your interests'. There is also a wide variety with Pandora.
I believe Pandora is better than Jango. Pandora tends to give me better options and more often figures out the type of music I like. Jango feels like it guesses randomly and suggest songs that were unrelated to what I was listening to. Also Pandora feels like a cleaner interface.
I have never been too impressed with Pandora. Their music selection was small and the free tier had a low bit rate and sounded mushy. Jango has no audio ads, unlimited skips, and I like their hot indie station. As an added bonus their app runs fine on an old iPod touch 4th Gen without freezing. Pandora runs very slow on the same device.
While Pandora may have more variety, you only get 12 skips. Jango has infinite skips. Also, Pandora has annoying ads. Who ever thought it was a good idea to have ads interrupt your music?
Jango has ads but it doesn't have sound and you can x out of them. Jango is also easier for me to use and it has a better song selection (a lot of them I've heard and loved) for me. It also chooses interesting artists for me to listen to that I otherwise wouldn't have ever heard of without Jango.
It gets incredibly frustrating to be told that a website or video is not available for my country. To find a site like Jango which allows South Africans such as myself to use is much appreciated, In the case that Pandora does become available to SA, I would most likely continue to use Jango out of loyalty
