With a large music collection, it is a challenge to find the right number, especially when you want to quickly put something on. The MixRadio app creates a playlist that suits you, which you can also listen again offline for free.
Although MixRadio is new to iDevices, the service is available longer on Windows Phone. The app was developed by Nokia and was part of the acquisition by Microsoft, which had already enough music services with Xbox Music. Good news, because MixRadio is an easy and entertaining way for tossing songs from your favorite artists and you take them with you, without having to put your whole iTunes library on your iPhone.
MixRadio learns from your listening habits
Before MixRadio presents a personal list, it is up to you to first select your favorite musical genres and artists. The artist list is constantly adapting when you select an artist, so the Nickel Backs and One Directions disappear quickly from view.
Then you can immediately start listening, or you can choose to download the playlist so you can listen to it offline. This download may take a few minutes, so keep it in mind if you are in a hurry.
With a library of over 35 million tracks, there is always something that you’ve never heard before and because MixRadio constantly learns from your listening habits, the playlists are becoming more attuned to you if you listen more often. This process can be accelerated by a heart (or no heart) that you can give a number.
The beauty of MixRadio is that the number of known and new songs are well matched. You do not hear the classics that you listen to for years, but you’re also not flooded with new material for you unknown musicians. For music lovers among us, definitely worth giving it a try, if only to always have an offline playlist.
