It must have happened with you when your watching TV and a song with no name comes up, plays for a few seconds and ends. You like the song but by the time you actually recognize the lyrics and put them in order to create the perfect line, the songs disappears.
To download the song you would now Google it for atleast a half an hour and if you still don’t get it, a little disappointment will definitely be there. Well if you have an iPhone or any other apple device then it could help you in searching songs just by listening to it. It’s true, now SoundHound, a music recognition app is available on the app store which helps you find songs just by listening to them.
The app recognizes sound and finds the song for you. You can use your voice to say the name or even place the phone near the source speaker to let it recognize the song for you.
The interface is pretty simple with a small search section at the top, attached to a speaker button. Above that you have the settings in the top right corner. At the bottom you have three buttons, history, what’s hot and iPod.
Talking about the features of the app first, you can either manually enter the name of an artist or song and search it.
If you want to use your voice to search a title, press the mic button next to it and say the name or the artist or the title of the song.
The best feature is yet to come. In case you are listening to an unknown song and just want it to be on your device, press the big Tap Here button, as seen in the image above, place the device near the speaker and let the app listen to it for a couple of seconds after which it will show you the results.
Numerous results are displayed on the screen. One can also play any song directly by tapping on the small play button ahead of the title on the image or can also head to iTunes to get it.
To know more about a particular song, to share it on Facebook Twitter, or to download it from iTunes tap on the same from the results list.
Coming back to the sections present on the main screen, the app has a history button on the bottom left corner which keeps a log of all your recently searched titles. It even keeps your bookmarks.
The middle button at the bottom is the What’s Hot section featuring all the hottest, underplayed and recently searched songs worldwide.
App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.
Conclusion: Brilliant app, recognizes immediately. A bit expensive but you will definitely love it
