How many of us have ever been in a situation where you hear on a song on the radio but can’t recall the name of the song but you really like it. Then, later you go home and search YouTube for hours trying to come up with the song name? Well if you have done that before this is a must need app, or if you are just a music lover.
The app is basically a song master, what you do is hold your phone up to a speaker when you hear a song you like and press the listen button. The app then processes the song and goes through it’s database and tells you the son you are listening too. Say, you are in a noisy public place and can’t get a clear recording of the song you can type in some lyrics and it will give you the song name. You can even sing or hum to your phone and it will give you the song name. Now that is really amazing!
Along with the song name you also get, the artist name, an artist bio, a place to download the song, lyrics to the song, social sharing options, and more. Many people compare this app to Shazam but I have to say this app is better than Shazam but they can both take pointers from each other and better there apps. The app is an all around must have app for anyone who owns an android device because everyone likes music but not everyone can store as much information as this handy app can.
