Need tunes to fit with your seething anger after missing the bus? Moodagent can create a playlist from the music on your phone based on five mood-related sliders: Angry, Happy, Sensual, Tempo, and Tender. Plus, if a song reminds you of your ex, you can block it until you’re ready to hear it again.

Never ask, “What’s this song called?” again. Open Shazam, hold it up to the speaker, and the app tells you the name of the song playing. Shazam pulls info from a database of more than 8 million songs—both old and new. The app lets you tag songs for downloading.
