PandoraJam 2.1 Beta: Recording is back!

PandoraJam is the perfect complement to Pandora, a stand-alone player that records, tags and imports song directly into iTunes…

People love streaming radio service Pandora. For a subset of fans, folks that may recorded a song or two off terrestrial radio to cassette tape back in the day, PandoraJam is the perfect complement, a stand-alone player that also records, tags and imports song directly into iTunes.

Recent changes on the Pandora site crippled PandoraJam, notably the ability to record songs. Although the ability to thumb up/down tracks and Scrobbling are still missing in action, PandoraJam 2.1 Beta fixes recording, which is a very good thing.

And, here is the proof — songs downloaded, tagged and placed in my Mac’s Music folder and listed in an iTunes playlist — in the form of screen caps.

Best of all, Notification Center reports when Growl-compatible PandoraJam plays new songs as well as the completion of recordings — see also: Growl 2 adds Notification Center support, OmniGrowl 4.5 adds Growl 2, Notification Center support.

With thumbing and Scrobbling still missing — the Share button doesn’t seem to be functioning either — PandoraJam 2.1 Beta is a work in progress. Yet, with recording re-enabled, it’s a work progress I can live with…

What’s your take?
