AndroGen


Automated music playlist generation for Android phones and tablets.


What is AndroGen?

AndroGen allows you to automatically generate a music playlist containing tracks in a similar style to the one currently playing, chosen from your own music collection.

AndroGen is in the early stages of development, so it may not do exactly what you want it to do. On the other hand, it works well for me, and I am already using it on a regular basis without any crashes or lockups. All feedback is welcome, and can be sent via the website at http://sites.google.com/site/keithmarshall/androgen.

Who is AndroGen for?

AndroGen will be most useful to people who have a large and varied music collection, and don't always want to decide what to listen to. You may be listening to your music, and think "I'm really enjoying this song, I want to hear some more like this one". That's when you would use AndroGen.

Recent changes:
v0.6.4 - fixed more force-close issues. I've had to add an extra permission (external storage access) to fix one of the close issues, because later versions of Android now require this permission for saving playlists into the media storage database.

There are still problems when switching away and back into the app in Android 4.0 and above.

Happy Musicphiles Everywhere. Been looking for something like this for a long time. For people who have large music collections, and greatly varying tastes, this is fantastic. <3 Thank you so much for the work you've put into this.

Awesome It crashes occasionally on my S4, but other than that it's great. Like many others have said, it's the closest to iTunes Genius that you'll get on Android. I wish this would be integrated better with our favorite music players. Would pay to see this seamlessly embedded into PowerAmp

Works but is glitchy on S5 It worked like a charm the first time but crashed. I changed the songs and restarted the phone yet no fix. Hope you get it fixed, then we'll have a working Genius mix on android. 👑

I wish this feature could be built in to some of the Android music players. It's so useful. Love the app.
