A picture may tell a thousand words, but how many decent music recommendations can it give you? A new iPhone app called Moodsnap is aiming to find out. Released today, it’s a streaming radio app that draws on Spotify for its music and The Echo Nest for its recommendation algorithms. But the key feature is the way it categorises music stations by photographs: “Easily find music to match your taste based on photographs that best fit how you feel,” as its App Store listing puts it. “Launch to listen in one tap. Just put your finger on a photo that feels right… Matching music to your mood has never been simpler.” Another twist being that people can contribute songs to specific stations (or “Moodsnaps”) to keep them fresh and relevant. The free iPhone app is live today in countries where Spotify is available.
