Abstract Mobile music devices need to deal with management issues related to increasing number of music items. There is a growing trend of using social tagging for building interfaces which allow for navigation of the content. Last.fm is an example of successful online music services built around user-generated metadata. New systems based on tags suffer from a cold start problem – situation when there is lack or very limited amount of available metadata. The aim of the project was to find the method of populating tag space with meaningful users’ annotations. Module for collection of social tags was designed on the basis of tagging-game concept. The implemented solution to this problem is a tool which allows users for assigning tags to music content in a convenient and pleasant way. In parallel, module for navigation of music based on the collected metadata was analyzed and designed. Module for collection of metadata was tested by a group of ten test participants. Data collected during the tests allowed for thorough analysis of the concept and application itself. Music annotated by ten test participants was described well on both artist and track level. Tags’ distribution is varied among different categories (genre, mood/emotion, etc.) as well as level of specificity. Application has proved to be successful in collection of meaningful descriptions for music content.
