Today’s Discovery – Songza – Right music at the right time

  • Device : Iphone – Android – web
  • Price : Free
  • Country : USA
  • Data-base : N/A
  • Link : www.songza.com

Songza is a free music streaming service for web and mobile. Depending on the period of the week, your mood, activitiy, culture,… it lets you browse thousands of playlists, create your own playlists collection, search for playlists by song or artist.
Just like in an hotel, you can ask for the Concierge service to find music, singing under the shower on monday morning, livening your saturday night party,… Songza will find `right music at the right time` but not necessarly the ones you enjoy ! Indeed, the system lacks a recommenation system taking into account the user’s taste.

 

+ Everything is free and no premium version.
++ Concierge System is fun and useful, depending on the time of the day, you can really find matched musics.
- As Last Fm services, users can’t select a track or an artist but only a playlist. Ad banner on each screen.
- – Songza is not really a music discover application, user can’t give his tastes and influence results. It’s only a playlist player.

 

Thanks to Songza I discover Harry Belafonte with the song Jump in the line

Today’s discovery : DISCOVR

  • Device : Iphone – Ipad – web
  • Price : $2.99 – $4.99
  • Country : Australia
  • Data-base : Echonest
  • Link : http://discovr.info/

Discovr developed a discovery application for various content : music, movies, applications, people. After entering a search, results appear as round icons scattered on a plan.
In the Music version, clicking on an icon reveals six new artists belonging to the same musical universe as the original selection. For each of these icons, several actions are possible, listen to 30 second extracts of the most popular tracks, obtain bio, share on social networks or new broaden the search by clicking again on an icon.

 

 

Be careful not to open too many icons at once, after a few minutes of use, the map of results can become somewhat complex and the user would tend to get lost in his research.

+  Showing results clear and legible connections between artists.
++  Rdio account holders can extend their research and listening on Rdio Application
-  No way for the user to indicate the suitability of links between artists.
–  No recommendation tool integrated. User discovery experience is thus limited to results elected by the application.

 

Thanks to Discovr I discovered The Magic Sam’s Boogie
