Editors' Review

Tangerine for Mac approaches the hassle of playlist creation from a curious perspective: Choosing which songs go well together based not on genre but on tempo. The results can be quite impressive -- a short, intense workout playlist or a long, relaxing one excellent for a lazy afternoon.

Pros

Easy yet powerful playlist creation: With just two sliders and a few other fields, Tangerine easily enables you to create a playlist that matches your specified duration, tempo range, song preference, and beat pattern.

Tight iTunes integration: While creating a new playlist, Tangerine can read the rating of each song and add high-rated songs more often. Also, it can update the play count when used as a music player.

Extensive exclusion rules: If you have audio files other than music in your iTunes library, Tangerine lets you set exclusion rules that eliminate matches based on duration, genre, album, artist, kind, rating, title, and so on.

Cons

iTunes tie-in: Upon launch, the app searches the iTunes Media folder for music, so you must manage your music library with iTunes to use Tangerine. If you don't use iTunes, this app has little to offer you.

Song list doesn't update live: The list of songs presented updates only once -- at the start of the app. If you make any changes to your library in iTunes, be sure to restart the app to see them reflected.

Outdated visual design: The software was made to look like a companion to iTunes, but since it has not been visually updated for some time, it still resembles iTunes 9. Needless to say, that look feels jarring when you use any of the newer versions of OS X.

Bottom Line

Tangerine for Mac may not be much to look at, but it works well. It runs smoothly, and the song scanning takes just 2 seconds per track on average. However, the look is dated, and Tangerine won't be useful if you're not managing your songs through iTunes.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Tangerine for Mac 1.4.1.
