Ratings and Reviews
Great idea works pretty well. Just a few things...
I like this software I use it most days asa I go to and from work to match my mood. With 4500 songs on my phone its invaluable. There are only a few problems. It does not analyze songs in the background. You have to leave your phone open and the app up front to get the analysis done. Next song titles and lyrics are not part of the dark/positive analysis. So new are songs with dark lyrics and cruel titles end up in categories like soulful groove or romantic. The beat can be deceiving. I wish they would team up with a content analysis company and make the ratings better. Lastly and this is the most frustrating thing. there is no matching Mac Application that can help manage the playback of the 119+ GB of music on my mac. I would love to sit in my office and be able to pull the full range of music from my system based on my mood or the work I’m trying to accomplish. Imagine being able to designate a mood based playlist or two for transfer to the phone or iPad. (I run this on both.) Great Work. I would gladly ship you a few dollars for a mac version.
I love this application. I think it has great potential specially for people with big music collections who love to create playlists. I like the fact that you can explore your music through a different lens (mood) and find new surprising relations between song that you did not think about. It is a great tool to give you ideas when creating a playlist. One issue I see is that the app doesn’t analyze music in the background (you have to keep the phone opened)and that this app is not maintained often; the last update was about 10 months ago.
Probably Best Mood Player out there
Habu is exactly what im looking for, offline music library mood analyser and player and online music discovery according to mood you choose. Works fine, only a few unpopular songs were not mismatching the selected mood, which is so much better than dreadful shuffle. And the best part is, its totally free!!! 👍🏻
Update: on each launch it re-analyses last 200 songs so I cant choose shuffle option and have to wait for 15-20 mins every time. This is the only annoying bug and I hope they fix it soon!
