    Music recommendation and streaming services have grown exponentially with the introduction of smartphones. Despite the large number of systems, they all currently face a lot of issues. One issue is a cold start where a user who is new to the system can’t be made recommendations until the system learns their tastes. They also lack context awareness to make truly personalised recommendations to the user. This paper introduces a new recommendation and streaming application, individual Personalised Music (iPMusic), for Android which is specifically designed to address the issues. We examine the effectiveness of iPMusic based on real world users’ feedback which shows positive results.
