Songza for iOS Updated with Design Changes, New Shake-to-play Feature, More 

Songza, the music app that plays the music according to how you are feeling or what you are doing, has been updated with some design changes to make navigation easier and takes the clutter away on the iPhone 5, a new shake-to-play feature, better performance, and more.

Included in the update:

  • Doing something special? From the Concierge screen on iPhone or iPod Touch, shake your device and tell Songza exactly what you're up to; Songza will then find the right music to make it better. For example, you could enter 'Entertaining' and Songza will find you music to soundtrack the perfect party. 
  • Enjoying your favorite artists is now better than ever. When you search for an artist, you’ll see every expert-curated playlist on Songza that features them. Any playlist you choose will begin with a song by that artist.
  • Get faster performance and less buffering, even when you have so-so internet connection. We’ve also fixed the most common crashes and bugs.
  • When you’re in a rush, a long press on any Concierge situation (e.g. Driving) immediately starts playing the playlist Songza thinks you'll love most at that moment. Starting your Songza playlist can now be as fast as turning on your car radio.
  • Songza’s HQ Audio feature, powered by Audyssey, significantly improves your headphone sound quality without increasing your data plan usage. With Songza 3.0’s improved HQ Audio, 200 headphone models are now available and it’s now easier to select your headphones whenever you add a new pair. 
  • A new full-screen Concierge experience takes advantage of the iPhone 5 screen and removes visual clutter, while a simplified navigation focuses on the most powerful and user-friendly additional features.
  • To make music discovery easier, in-app tips on iPhone or iPod Touch help you move from playlists you’re getting tired of to new playlists that will make you feel fresh all over again.
  • We’ve made navigation simpler by removing unnecessary things and unburying cool features like browsing playlists by mood, genre, decade or activity.

Songza is available for free as a universal app (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) in the App Store [iTunes Link].
