Ideas: Desktop Compact Player

I would like to see a compact player option. Maybe by clicking a button and all you see is a small screen with the options to go next back thumbs up and play and pause on it. Sometimes I just want to switch screens and having the full application open can be a hassle. I want to see the work that I'm working on as well as paying attention to what music is playing.

I totally agree with the above.  We are constantly losing from the never-ending technological "improvements."  Not having the small, dock stationed player will again make me disappointed in Pandora.  The music offerings are wonderful but the way we have to access them has, for me - in the second time in a year, become worse.  'You guys competing with Apple for the downward spiral?

The app on iPhone is very usable, and music is excellent. But on a computer the large space taken up is a problem.

Thanks for the response, Brady. Hmmm. It still was a very convenient player. I wonder why it was dropped; is it because most computers are “under" powered? ‘And with the power in a computer!

Unfortunate.

Really? So it previously didn’t work on many computers. Size of the play button has nothing to do with speed or memory. My old iMac mini computer is 10 years old. I didn’t update the player and it still works. The new iMac has huge processing speed and go of space. I’m forced to loose 1/4 of my screen.

Yes, please bring back the mini player option where it showed the album cover and play/pause/skip and thumb up/down. I would like to have it going on in the background corner of one of my screens. not have to switch web tabs

I do not like the new app.  I like the one which ran from the taskbar.  I am always closing the new one by accident.

It would be nice to have the small Player widget (reduced size little control panel that you used to be able to move around your screen) reinstated for desk top applications.  It was dropped in the revamp and was so handy in the previous incarnation of pandora.  Now on the desktop application the smallest you can make the pandora interface is half of your screen.  I know that there are keyboard controls but the little player window was so handy and you could see what was going on.
