Review Songza

Brandon Girod
6.0Good
Free music
Small pool of music
Songza for Android is a free way to enjoy music curated around certain popular everyday scenarios. Going to the gym? They’ve got playlists for you. Driving to work? There’s a playlist for that. They’ve even got a pre-made playlist just waiting to cheer you up after you and your significant other break up.
I’m a huge fan of music, and am always searching for new music to check out. This app is built for people like me in mind. It wants you to open the app, choose what you’re doing, and not have to worry about picking and choosing what you listen to. Where it gets it wrong is that there is no feedback to give the app, so there is no algorithm to build a profile of your likes and dislikes. Instead, it’s like a pre-made playlist with a pool of songs they put on shuffle, but they’re not tailored to your preferences.
I think this is a huge misstep.
They have an entire set of playlists around dance genres of music. I thought this was awesome because it’s what I’ve been listening to. What I quickly realized was literally all of the music on every playlist was radio rap and R&B. In other words, it was all the same kind of music, no matter what pool of songs I selected.
Songza has a great idea, but unfortunately it’s not the first app to try and pre-select what you want to listen to before you know what you want to listen to, and it’s definitely not the best at it. Instead, it’s mediocre, and the only redeeming quality is that it’s free… but then again, so is Pandora.
