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.

Scan to download

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.

  1. Match made in heaven? The iPod/iPhone are pretty terrible players if you like music. There are generally speaking two types of music listeners: people who like music (everybody believes that they are in this category) and people who like the emotional responses that they get from music (researchers have proven that most people are in this category). People who like music skip Apple portable products. They use lower quality components for all things digital signal. They don’t reproduce music well and don’t sound good. Those who do like music and get an Apple portable send them away to be altered with higher quality components. That just leaves the other category: people who don’t like music. If that’s you, then you’re wasting your money on an Apple portable. There are less expensive, more capable players available. I guess that’s what makes me chuckle about this app. It truly is a companion for people who are emotionally addicted to music, which your iPod/iPhone expresses to be true of you.

  3. I partially agree with Antonio, though the Apple products have their faults, there is not a better high capacity player for the same price point, or anywhere near.
