iCulture App of the Week: Next Do you know that feeling that you want to listen to music, but you don't know exactly what? You then press shuffle, after which you keep skipping until you hear a nice song. Next is an app that you link to your Apple Music subscription. The app has its own shuffle mode, but a special one. Based on your listening behaviour, Next tries to predict which music you want to hear. It alternates between your favorites and the hidden gems in your library. The app is now also available for your iPad.
With Next you can rediscover music in your own library. A special playlist has also been created for this. The playlist automatically adds songs that you used to listen to a lot, but not anymore. Music that you have just added can also receive extra attention in Next, so that you will quickly love it.
