Update to iHeartRadio hits Android before iOS; new feature finds tunes for you based on your likes

0. phoneArena 16 Jun 2014, 23:17 posted on

An update to streaming radio site iHeartRadio hit the Android version of the app on Monday, with a new feature in tow. "For You" is a feature that provides you with a curated list of stations that you will love. How does the app know you will love the stations it picks for you? Is it merely based on random guesses? Not a chance. Your favorite genres are examined along with your listening habits, and music you gave a thumbs up to. Perhaps an algorithm is used as well.

Finding good, relevant music based on "likes" is a very difficult problem and usually gives mediocre recommendations.

I like Spotify because I can choose what to listen to and because it allows me to find music I like -- instead of shoving a bunch of crap in my face like many other Internet music services.
