Songza has just been updated for iOS 7. Or at least on iPhone and iPod touch, it has. While the interface of its iPad edition appears untouched by its latest update, Songza for iPhone and iPod touch has been updated with some nice UI touches based on the design of iOS 7. These touches are most evident in the app's new edge-to-edge Now Playing screen. This includes the play/pause and skip buttons at the bottom, the track details and playlist name near the middle, and the album art at the top portion. And superimposed on the album art itself are the new buttons for easily and quickly liking or disliking the track, posting about the playlist on Twitter or Facebook, and buying the track on iTunes. Note that apart from these new design tweaks, Songza's interface remains largely the same since its 3.0 redesign early last May. Also featuring a new, flatter icon, the new version of Songza is available now in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later. Although Apple has officially launched iTunes Radio, I still keep coming back to Songza for its impressive library of handmade playlists, which easily trump iTunes Radio's featured station selection. Plus, Songza's Music Concierge selection remains topnotch for finding the right music for the right moments. A couple of months ago, Songza introduced Club Songza, a subscription service that offers an ad-free listening experience, enhanced with exclusive playlists and activities, for $3.99 per month.
