SoundHound, The Best Choice for Identifying Music - Review

So just a couple days ago during our Friday Night Hangout my app pick was SoundHound. I decided I'd make a small review about it here to highlight my most favourite features.

So the advertised list of features of Sound Hound are:
  • Blazing fast music recognition
  • The world's only singing and humming recognition
  • LiveLyrics: see lyrics move in time with the music
  • Home screen widget allows you to identify music without launching the app
  • No banner advertisements
  • SoundHound Headlines: brings you free song streams, new artists, and more
  • Real-time Facebook and Twitter updates from your favorite artists
  • Facebook and Twitter sharing, listen-on-startup, and geotagging
  • Buy links, YouTube videos, artist biographies, and much more

Unlike Shazam, another song identifying app, Sound Hound doesn't soulfully identify original tracks, it also takes melodies, lyrics, live concerts, and many remixes.

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head and just couldn't figure out? All you have to do is sing to SoundHound! During our Friday Night Hangout, I sang live on air to my phone with my terrible singing voice, and even with me sounding like I'm tone deaf, SoundHound still correctly identified the song I was singing.

SoundHound identifies the song at the top, and suggests 5 more possible matches to ensure even if it makes a mistake, (or you do) you'll almost always find what you're looking for. Most suggested matches have optional sound clips to listen to the song to really ensure that's the one you're really thinking of.

It also keeps records of your past searches. So if you searched for something six months ago and forgot due to your goldfish memory, SoundHounds got your covered

So the next time you're strolling through the mall and hear that amazing song in one of the clothing shop, pop out your SoundHound and have a listen. SoundHound has never let me down yet.I

There's also a free version, but who wants that?
