If you didn’t know it, I am a big music fan, and I am always looking for a good music app. The iPhone and iPad have the music app that can play your music or any playlists that you have created. You can also use it to create a genius playlist, based off of a seed song, it will match other songs in your library that are similar. There are plenty of apps that will help you find new music, Pandora, Spotify and so on, they use a seed song or band to create your playlist. But what if you want to create a playlist based on something other than a song? For example a playlist based on the day of the week, where you were going, or your mood? Enter Songza. Songza does just that it will create a play list for you based on filters as what you are doing or how you are feeling. All of Songza’s playlists are made by music professionals. DJ’s and music critics. The other cool thing about Songza, is there are no commercials. It also functions a little like Pandora where you can give a gong the “Thumbs Up” or “Thumbs down” which will fine tune you playlist on the fly. For example I am writing this post on Sunday morning. When I opened Songza, it asked me if I wanted a “Late Sunday morning playlist” I clicked go, then it asked if I wanted “pre-game pump up music” and of I said Go. It started playing some really cool songs that would fire you up, but I hadn’t thought about in a while. Songza is not limited to iOS. The application also runs on Android and there is also a website, so you can always have a new cool playlist at your fingertips. I know your next question, “How much for this app?” You can have this app and all of it’s playlist creating goodness for the low, low price of… FREE. So you have no excuse not to at least give it a spin. Even if you don’t download the app, give it a shot on the web. You won’t be disappointed.
A few months ago Apple claimed they were going to re-invent education, with that they released iBooks for the iPad, making the backbreaking old method of carting books around in a back pack, and having the ability to put all of your books on a single iPad. At the same time they also released iBooks [...]
Over the Christmas break I got a chance to play with the Azend Zippy BT-500 bluetooth keyboard. I went through a series of emotions about this little thing. Initially, I was not too impressed with how cheap it felt in my hands (like a dollar store toy for my daughter). Mainly, that was just because [...]
iOS has been around for a while now. I have been using an iPhone since the first one was released. The iPhone was a revolution to the cell phone industry. Not only did it revolutionize the cell phone market, it also revolutionized what “Smart phones” could do. Then once Apple showed everyone how to use [...]
