SoundHound ∞ app review: recognizes music playing around you

Reviews

Introduction

SoundHound ∞ is a very clever app for iPhone and iPad that is able to almost instantaneously recognize music that is playing around you, enabling you to easily identify songs and discover brand-new bands and artists.

The best iPad apps for listening to music

I remember the days when you could call a premium rate number to have songs identified; the technology definitely seems to have come a long way since then!

This is a truly impressive app which has left me agape at just how easily it is able to recognize songs, so be sure to check it out today and I think you’ll probably enjoy it just as much as I have, if not more.

Identify Music With a Simple Hum

This is a startlingly effective app that you can use to identify music playing around you within a matter of seconds, simply by holding your device up to the audio source while it does its thing.

The best iPad apps for music lovers

What’s more, this is one of the first apps that enables you to have songs identified simply by singing or humming them into your device’s microphone. I personally find this to be an absolutely amazing feature and a must-see for any doubters.
