Giving iTunes a deserved kicking...
by on December 22, 2010
Apple’s Genius function for iTunes is something that should be awesome but isn’t. Maybe it’s the way that Genius has to rifle through all of your songs every time you use it, making it slower than Stephen Hawking reciting Homer’s The Iliad while trying to explain the notion of time travel to a five year old.
Maybe it’s because it’s made by Apple, who treats Android users with the sort of contempt usually kept for reality TV stars in pantomime.
Mixzing makes the bold claim that it is better at iTunes for matching music to mood and creating playlists that can be used as soundtrack’s to your puny and rather average life.
It works and it works well, creating playlists based on individual songs and allowing you the ability to chop and change songs in the lists.
There’s even the inclusion of artist bios and information, which is a decent addition to any music player.
Other features include the option to find artwork for albums, fix tags on songs and some neat desktop synching.
In some ways, Apple keeping iTunes for the iPhone and iPod is a good thing – as it means that apps like Mixzing can come in and give it a kicking.
