Apparently mood music apps are a thing now. Last week I discovered Rockola, a streaming music app that finds music based on mood from various time periods. Today I came across Moodagent, an app that also creates playlists based on mood. The difference is that Moodagent playlists are generated from songs already in your music library.
The first time you run Moodagent, it will sync your music collection with an online database filled with millions of tracks. Each song has a profile so that Moodagent can decide which songs are tender, sensual, angry, happy, and so forth. The app downloads profiles for each song in your collection so that you can generate playlists more quickly and without an internet connection.
You’re not just limited to clicking on the “Angry” tab to generate an angry playlist though. You can slide each element up and down, so you can find slow and sensual tracks, or tender and angry songs… whatever that would mean.
Each playlist is 25 tracks long. You can also generate a playlist by hitting the search icon and choosing an individual song. Moodagent will use the profile from that song to generate a playlist with similar tracks.
Moodagent is available as a free ad-supported download from the Android Market. It’s also available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The ad-free version will set you back $4.99, but there’s also a free ad-supported version for iOS.
You can find more screenshots after the break.
