SoundHound is an incredible app that can recognize a song, tune or even a hum after listening to a short sound clip of it. Once the app recognizes the song it will attempt to find the lyrics, and information about the album and artist as well as any related information it can find on Youtube and online stores (i.e. links to purchase the song).
If you are not sure that the app has found the right song, you can press the play button and listen to a playback of the versions that SoundHound had found to verify that it is the right one. Once you have found the right song you can buy it from Amazon, Bookmark and share your find with others.
You can also search by song title or artist name if you are not sure of the tune. ‘Wait,’ you say, ‘Shazam is just as good of an Android music recognition app as is Soundhound.’ Well not quite. While Shazam can recognize music from sound bites, SoundHound has an extra trick up its sleeve with its ability to recognize tunes and songs from a mere hum, and it does so in less time than Shazam as well.
