I don't generally put music on my phone due to the small amount of space that I have, but it would be nice if i had the ability to download songs from pandora that I have cd's for at home once in a while (note: i'm not condoning piracy, and all songs that I'd be downloading, i'd make damn sure i have licence for before i did). I often find myself away from my cd collection for long periods of time and the thought of ripping it all and then trying to manage all that data is just plain daunting... i'd rather hear a track i know on pandora and click the download button.
best ive got is the same way on the desktop.
download firefox (not beta).
open it and go to menu>tools>add ons
click the add on icon in the top right
search the add ons market for "download"
download and install the first add on.
from firefox, go to Pandora.com, it should request you to download the app.
press menu>request desktop site
wait for it to load and sign in
when you hear a song you want, click the "down" arrow on the bottom left
accept, and wait for the download to finish.
open your favorite file manager and navigate to firefoxes download path (more than likely sdcard/Downloads.
find the "blah,blah,blah,blah.null" file and rename it to "the song you are trying to download.mp3"
accept any warning/ prompt about changing the file extension.
enjoy your music!
If opening FF is a pain for you for pandora, you can do a few things to make it almost like an app. use some ingenuity!
