Songza is a versatile music-streaming service for web and mobile devices. The app is designed to give users the perfect playlist of music for nearly any mood, situation, or time of day. Songza will recommend one of six activities relevant to the date, day, and time, each with its own unique set of options for music. Whether users are trying to relax on a Friday afternoon after a long week in school or at work, or simply going for a walk in the park, Songza has a playlist for nearly any situation. Users will find the recommendations — which are chosen by Songza‘s “experts” –unique, interesting, and fitting for a range of moods or activities. This app is intuitive and easy to use, and contains no inappropriate material, but parental supervision is recommended for monitoring music listening choices of young children,making Songza recommended for any user ages 5 and up.



Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

songza recommendsSongza is nothing if not flexible. The app is designed to present users with unique music suggestions tailored for any time of day, mood, or activity. Users will find its playlists designed for listening while exercising to be upbeat and energetic, while those designed for finishing schoolwork or sitting at the office induce a state of focus and concentration. Users can also learn to be more flexible in their listening preferences as the app recommends an enormous variety of new music. Because the app allows only a limited number of "skips" per listening session, users must approach Songza with an open mind toward new and unfamiliar artists, albums, and songs. Learning to appreciate new forms of music can be an excellent way to introduce users to the base components of the Flexibility thinking skill.


Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.

Songza is designed to tailor music listening to a users current activities and moods. Thinking about and understanding personal emotions and feelings is an excellent way to practice Self-Awareness, and the app, by design, encourages such activity. Users can search for music relevant to their current mood or seek out new and unfamiliar experiences in an effort to alter their mood. Searching for potentially interesting music in a favorite genre or looking for completely new music are both great ways to exercise the Self-Awareness thinking skill. Users can also give new songs and playlists "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" to help the app learn preferences and provide improved recommendations, tailoring the experience to be more in line with their personal tastes.
