Potion Factory releases Tangerine! 1.0
December 8, 2006
Potion Factory is pleased to announce the release of Tangerine! 1.0 for Mac OS X. Tangerine! lets you create playlists of upbeat songs, or playlists for relaxing by analyzing the tempo and the beat intensity of music.
Tangerine! was dreamed up by the Potion Factory founders when they noticed that they were spending more time picking out workout songs than actually working out. Frustrated with having to listen to the same music over and over again or skipping and fumbling over mood-ruining songs during a workout, they decided to scratch their own itch and develop a product to solve the problem once and for all.
Despite having been available as only a beta release, many iPod+Nike users have already taken notice of Tangerine! because with Tangerine! they can now create the perfect playlist for their runs. The iTunes Store already has a selection of songs especially composed for running, however, runners can now enjoy their own favorite songs during their run by having Tangerine! automatically comb through their music library to pick out songs that will match their own foot speed and routine. Tangerine! provides four playlist generation patterns that look much like treadmill routines. Using these patterns, runners can easily create playlists for interval training, or hill training.
Tangerine! sells for $24.95 and can be downloaded and purchased at www.potionfactory.com/tangerine/. A 15-day demo is available at the site as well.
