SoundHound app review
SoundHound by SoundHound, Inc. is an app that helps you identify whatever song you are listening to.
Do you find it to be the most irritating thing in the world when you are listening to a song that sounds so familiar but you just can’t remember the name? That’s where SoundHound comes in: simply let SoundHound listen to the song and within seconds it will tell you the name of the song, artist, and give you the lyrics so you can sing along.
SoundHound does require an Internet connection whether over 3G or Wi-Fi to identify the songs but if you don’t happen to have one available at the time, SoundHound will store the sample and identify it when you are connected to the Internet again. You can also go directly to iTunes from SoundHound and purchase or download the music you have identified.
If you are the type who loves to share what they have you’ll be happy to know you can share you music choices over Facebook and Twitter. You can also sign up for live update feeds from your favorite artists and the SoundHound lyrics will keep you on top of everything that is new and cool
This app was updated to Version 5.2.3 on January 4, 2013 and included some minor bug fixes. SoundHound currently has 33 ratings with an average score of three out of five stars.
I thought the concept of this app was amazing. The ability to recognize just about any song within seconds of hearing it is simply amazing. It also makes a great karaoke tool with the ability to scroll the lyrics in time with the music.
For: iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 5.0 or later
