Find the right beat

Try this great little software – Tangerine!

It analyzes the rhythm of your music and generates you a playlist of songs which fit to your training plan. With the right beats per minute (BPM) and beat intensity of your songs you can use faster songs to become faster ;).

It’s all done in your iTunes music library. Right now the software costs around 25$.
