Rather aptly, Evolver.fm compares the $2 iOS app to wildly popular game Draw Something — in that after firing up the app, you’re encouraged to do just that. Sort your music collection by either genre, artist, album, play count, etc and you’ll be presented with a grid of colors connoting those elements. You can then drag your finger through the field of colored dots (each representing a song), drawing anything your heart desires, and the app will create a playlist from what you draw.
I was able to pull together some pretty rad playlists with my inspired drawings — although they were often very heavy on Jay Reatard’s Teenage Hate and sported some song repetitions. The biggest oversight, however, is that you are not able to save your playlist creations for later listening — a bummer, especially since the app is more expensive than the average offering. Still, PlayGrit really makes it easy to weed out the stray Christmas music, which is a blessing to my summer-sound-craving ears.
