If there’s one thing missing from the Android, it would be iTunes Genius feature. For those who don’t know what this is, it is actually an intelligent feature found on iTunes which automatically creates a playlist based on the genre and mood of the songs found in the existing library. Think of it as a personalized DJ whose job is to create a playlist of songs that will complement one another. Thankfully, Android users can get the same feature on an app we recently discovered.
Just like its name, Moodagent is an app that sorts the music library into different moods. The good thing about this app is that it gets the job done on various platforms including iOS, Android, and Windows (XP, Vista, or Win 7).
How to Sync a Playlist with Your Device:
1. On your mobile device, choose the appropriate library which contains music. Click on the button that says Add Music Files.
2. Once files have been added to the app, click on Start Profiling. This starts the process wherein Moodagent will categorize each of your tracks according to similar musical characteristics. While your device is analyzing your library, you can see the status of each file on the Status panel. The status of each file can range from Profiled, Unprofiled and Error. For a more detailed view of your music files, simply click on Open Detailed View—located on the right side of the screen.
3. Launch the app. From the menu, choose Settings > Sync Music Library. This will automatically sync the created profiles on your computer with your device. Typically, Moodagent will categorize your songs into profiles such as Happy, Angry, Tempo, Tender and Sensual.
