    is there any way of still getting it since it’s been removed from the store?

      Not really, Windows 8 apps are only available from the Windows Store. There are ways, but they just aren’t worth trying.

      You could use the Xbox Music app which will give you 6 months of free music streaming. Then when the Pandora official app comes up you can use that.

      I hope this answer is helpful.
