I think the Songza interface is far more interesting when you compare it
Seeqpod has offered a very similar service for quite some time. While Songza
is more visually attractive to me, I think seeqpod is much easier to
interact with and use. I'd be interested to know what you think too.
However, my one major reservation with Seeqpod is that it is Flash based
being enabled, and is completely unusable/ inaccessible without it.
Both of these issues impact heavily on the user experience and so, I think
the interaction design is severely flawed in both.
wow, I'm simply blown away by the UI. Very distinctive controls,
layout & flow.
I expect we might see more niche search engines also differentiate
with novel/innovative UI designs.
e.g. http://www.kayak.com/moby/ (not a lot going on with style, but
the interaction thinking is good)
Thanks for the link David, I feel like a kid in a candy store.
