When devices like the iPod hit the market, suddenly instead of listening to a dozen songs on a CD player one could take their entire thousand-song music library wherever they went. Today, streaming services like Spotify and Pandora take things a step further by offering nearly every song in existence anytime, anywhere. With so much choice though, picking the right song for the right occasion becomes even more difficult. Now, Songza is here to help.
Users can tell Songza what genre or decade they want a song to come from or even something as vague as what they are doing or what mood they are in. From there, Songza’s “Music Concierge” searches its “thousands of original playlists handmade by music experts” to select the ideal mix. Users can also save and share their favorite playlists through Facebook and Twitter. Best of all, there are no fees, advertisements or listening limits.
The problem Songza fixes, not knowing what song to play, is a pretty first-world one. Still, it is another great example of more convenient living through technology. Songza is available now for free on the App Store.
