Set it off - Strafe. Recorded in 1983 (!) Strafes version of ´Set if off´must be the coolest song ever.

When I hear music - Debbie Deb. It´s easy to hear that Madonna has been heavily influenced by the way Debbie sings. This song should be played on all dance floors this summer (and the next..)

Windows and more features 

We are currently working on user definable colors and tooltips, that's the next set of features.

After that: A hot key / status menu option, for fast in and out tagging of the current track.

The Windows version is far on it's way now and a beta should be out in a couple of weeks or so!


Filter tip 

A small Moody tip:

If you go to the *Moody playlist and then do a filter search on a genre, say country, you can listen to only the country songs of that mood. Even if you switch mood the filter stays put.

Which can lead to an error.. if you don't have any country songs of a certain mood and try to play that mood. Well well. Expect a fix on that.


Panther and a bug 

Small update out yesterday, just a bug fix.

There is a working version of Moody for Panther - OS X 3.9 too now.
It can be downloadable from here >
(Edit: It may still got some bugs in it, please report if you use it and experience any problems.)

There are some spam in the comments, so we'll try an antispam thing, see if it has any powers.

Also, just want to make clear that just because we don't answer all the suggestions in the comments doesn't mean we think they suck. Some of the stuff you've suggested here are great features that we're discussing or planning on including in future releases.


New version - 0.1.1 

There's a new version of Moody out!
To download it, just start Moody and an update window will pop up.

Changes in this version:
- Quicker respons on playback and tagcount.
- The Quicktag Needle Drop now includes half track time.
- Skip track permanently when quicktagging.

Moody now creates a set of playlists in a folder to increase handling speed. The difference is quite huge, especially for big librarys. Hope you'll love it!

Moody User Review 

I read this user review at Macupdate.com that was pretty interesting. The reviewer didn't really like some aspects of the concept, but went on using the app with his/her personal rules.

The arrows with the Sad-Happy things are there as a guide, to keep people from feeling confused. I hope that those who feel limited by the words do exactly as the reviewer and just close that little window and make up their own rules. I love that, I myself have developed a relationship with the squares and know what songs i put where, and that's really the point.

We love the idea of a personalized experience with software, as opposed to the more lazy approach to have the app autotag the songs or pull down some readymade tags from a server (although this also might be a future possibility if solved in a smart way). Music is a pretty personal thing.

New version finally out! 

It's been over half a year since the Album Art Screensaver was released. Finally there's a new version available, with lots of improvements.

First of all the installtion should be a lot simpler. The installation wizard lets you define all that is needed, no more right-clicking on "scr" files and other clumsy solutions.

Another neat thing is that the screensaver can display info on the currently playing track in your music player. This works for iTunes 7 and SlimServer and looks very nice if I may say so myself.

And finally as you might have already noticed there is support for the SlimServer. This is the server software that is used with the sweet litte Squeezebox. If you have not heard of it I suggest you check it out at:

Hello World! 

We are very pleased to release Moody today, together with a new version of our Album art screensaver.

Moody is a nice little gadget that really can change your music listening if you let it. Tag your tracks with moods and then listen to the smoothest shuffle mixes you've ever heard. No more bumpy roads.

It takes some effort to tag all the tracks if you got many (and you probably do since you're here), but it's so worth it. I tagged my first 1100 tracks in an hour and a half, that's 5 seconds per track, pretty fast thanks to the quicktag function. Take a couple of hours to go through some of your good stuff with the quicktag function. Then you can tag along as you go with quicktag turned off.

The screensaver has got some new functions, it now supports Squeezebox, and it also shows album art and track info of current track. Mattias can talk more about that.

Hope you enjoy the stuff, you got links to the right. And leave a comment if you got any thoughts or if you find a bug or two.

See ya soon!
