In case you needed another launchpad for music discovery, here's an app that uses images to curate your Spotify Premium playlists.
Discovering music and creating music playlists can truly be a fun endeavor, especially if you use tools that allow you to go about the task in a unique way. Moodsnap is a new image-based music streaming app that allows users to choose songs based on a mere photograph. Powered by Spotify and The Echo Nest, Moodsnap has reportedly been in closed-beta since May and is now available to anyone with a Spotify Premium account and an iOS device.
“Through research, what I found to be missing from today’s music apps is the perfect balance between contextual relevance, trusted curation, and simplicity through intuitive design,” says David Blutenthal, Founder and CEO of Moodsnap. “Our mission was to develop an app that aims to deliver on all three. That’s how Moodsnap was born.”
But… how exactly can images help you create a music playlist? And how accurate will the results be? We went hands on to find out.
