Pandora On The iPad – Location Annoyance

I always enjoy listening to Pandora, entering the artist I like and then listening to music from that genre, getting some new songs, old songs, and some songs I never heard of. I always knew they had a location restriction, I tried listening to them online or from other devices like my Sonos system but it never worked, but for some reason it always worked on my iPad and I loved it. Especially that I have 3G I could stream it and listen to it all the time, from any location. Now since the last update to Pandora it comes with the screen that says we can’t stream due to your location and that annoyed the hell out of me.

Luckily the way to circumvent that is using a VPN and in my case StrongVPN. Having a VPN on does slow down your connection a bit but in this case its audio so luckily it wasn’t affected and I couldn’t hear an degradation in music quality.
