Elpis is an easy to use Pandora client that allows users from selected countries to listen to online radio stations. The software allows users to search for their favorite bands' own station and listen to it. A working Pandora account is required (as well as an Internet connection).
A good tool for Pandora users
The program is most valuable to users that already employ Pandora on a regular basis and could benefit from a desktop program with the same functionality. Else, anyone who enjoys listening to music can draw value from this application, as it allows one to listen to tracks from the most popular artists.
Elpis comes with a very professional, black-themed GUI that most users will find pleasant to work with. There are no tabs or menus to confuse users and all navigation is handled by on-screen buttons. All in all, the absence of most otherwise common interface objects makes this software highly intuitive.
A working Pandora account is required
Users should note that before any music can be played, one must meet three requirements: 1. have a working Pandora account; 2. be able to connect to the Internet; 3. connect from either the USA, New Zealand or Australia. For the latter case, one can employ a VPN or proxy program, in order to connect to Pandora.
Once the previously-mentioned criteria are fulfilled, users benefit from the same functionality as the source website. This means themed radio stations can be played and one can even like or dislike songs. Entries are displayed with short descriptions and informative thumbnails.
Users can search for radio stations
One of the great features of this software is that it allows users to search for radio stations. Essentially, all the functionality that the Pandora website offers is available with this small desktop application!
In conclusion, Elpis is a good option for anyone who likes to stream radio stations and has a Pandora account.
