Songza for iPhoneWeb music service Songza has reportedly become the most popular free music app for Apple mobile devices, bumping Pandora out of the top spot. It has seen 1.15 million downloads since June 7, when Songza updated its iPhone app and released a new app for iPads.

"It looks like Internet radio service Songza is this summer's next big thing in digital music," comments Billboard. GigaOM calls the service "mobile's newest star." TechCrunch writes, "This is a testament to how startups can disrupt crowded spaces as long as the core idea is solving the problem differently."

New York-based Songza "aims to help people find the perfect playlist for what they're doing at the moment - whether it's unwinding after a hectic week, reading the morning newspaper or hosting a cocktail party," writes Reuters.

"We're trying to make the world's greatest collection of amazing playlists and long-form listening experiences", said Elias Roman, co-founder of Songza. "The idea is [to] get people to just three playlists really quickly that they're going to love and are going to be perfect for whatever situation they're in and whatever type of music they love," explained co-founder Peter Asbill.

"People seem to enjoy Songza because it's different than other Internet radio services. It offers playlists based on moods and interests, not artists and albums," writes Billboard.

Plus, as the AP reports, Songza does not run audio ads. That adds extra pressure in the "struggle to survive in a business saddled with high royalty rates for artists." 

Billboard also offers a dose of reality: "Let's keep Songza in perspective, shall we? iHeartRadio reached 10 million users in ten months. TuneIn claims to have 30 million users. Pandora has over 53 million active users. And history has taught us that next big things don't always work out."
