Songza for iOS

The Good Songza offers playlists that are perfect for just about any activity or mood you're in. It's free to download, and the ads are unobtrusive and easy to ignore.

The Bad There are no links to supplementary artist or track information.

The Bottom Line While you can still get playlists by genre or artist, Songza's unique concept of assembling playlists according to your current activity makes it a great download for music lovers.

Review

Find the perfect music for any activity

Editors' note This review has been updated with new features added in version 3.0.

Songza is a popular streaming-music app that offers a different take on the type of programmed radio experience that Pandora initially made popular. Rather than generate playlists based on specific songs or artists, this app tries to offer up the right selection of tunes for specific activities you might be engaged in. In version 3.0, new features make the app less cluttered and help you start listening to music faster and with fewer steps.

While other streaming-radio apps typically start you off with a search bar, Songza starts with its unique Concierge screen. Here, it presents you with six choices of different activities you might be engaged in. Six may not sound like very many, but worry not because these six actually change depending on the current day and time.
