    I recently refreshed my sources and discovered the new app, Synchstep. Apparently it detects your walking speed and plays a song that has a similar beat to the steps you take. I'll try it out later, but check it out for yourselves.

    it says you need to have the BPM on your songs. there is a tab for it in itunes, and you put in the value. im guessing it just samples at a rate every minute and adjusts to the closest song.

    anyone know how to figure out the beats per minute of a song?

    i s'pose you could just give every song a number based on how fast it is

    but

    yeah
