About the app

Do happy songs annoy you when you’re feeling angry? Ever wondered why you feel depressed when you listen to dark music?

Music can have a powerful effect on our mood. We use it daily whether we are happy, angry, bored or depressed. It gives us energy when we work out and it helps us wind down.

Create a mood map of your music library, develop dynamic playlists to match your music to your mood or select a music journey to express, enhance or change your mood.

With the swipe of a finger you can draw a music journey starting at how you currently feel and ending at how you want to feel. Or just make it fun – draw your own shape and see what it sounds like. Use the power of music to help you take charge of your feelings.

I would recommend this to a lot of the young people I work with. I really like the fact that it has a social/emotional aim but that this is not "forced" on you. Repackaging something that we use regularly (i.e. listening to music) and tweaking it so that it is a more directed and considered experience makes this an app that I am happy to continue using!

User review

I liked...

This app is really cool and I really liked it. I listen to music all the time so I would use it to listen to music specifically tailored to my mood. I liked that the app was able to make the playlists for me with music I already had.

I didn't like...

Nothing.

User review

I liked...

Automatically makes me playlists based on how I feel/what I might be doing. Graphics were well thought out. Can plan own playlist to transfer moods. i.e feel angry to feel peaceful.

I didn't like...

Little bit difficult to work out how to use, had to really read instructions.
