    A personalized playlist is a great way to let someone know how you feel, and it’s easy to make one online with the vast range of Web-based music services. Tapely takes things a step further, letting you customize a mixtape to set the mood and share them with anyone.

    Tapely can pull in music from YouTube and SoundCloud for you to preview and queue up. Once you’ve collated your favorite tracks, you can name your mixtape, add a background image from Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, your desktop or by searching the Web, and then choose your fonts and colors.

    Editing Tapely

    When your mixtape is ready, you can share it on social networks or email the link from within the app.

    If you’d rather just listen, Tapely has over 25,000 themed mixtapes ready to go: just visit the homepage or search by mood, occasion or genre to tune in.

    The service is easy enough to use, and will certainly come in handy when setting up playlists for the holidays. Tapely has just secured its second round of funding, and plans to monetize sometime in the future with premium features. It also has a mobile app in the works, with a release slated for January.
