Before Pandora came about, Playlist.com was great. Sure, it had flaws, but a few bad links to some songs was nothing; there was more available that worked. I loved Playlist.com because I could actually CHOOSE what songs I wanted on my playlist to listen to, not pick an artist, hear one song I didn't pick by that artist, then hear a ton of songs that I am forced to listen to because the skips are limited to FIVE, which was used up in two seconds, like Pandora and iHeartRadio does. One day, I went to the Playlist website because Pandora wasn't my listening choice due to their random songs you don't want to listen to, but are forced to, and I saw that the developers of Playlist.com had tried to compete with Pandora, taking away the CHOICE of one's own music playlist with songs they actually picked, and made it identical to Pandora in terms of playlist idea. The inability to actually pick your own songs, and having the website make the choices for you, is what drives me AWAY from playlist/radio apps/websites.
When websites/apps compete, you lose.
