    This cool app lets you know the title of a playing song. Have you ever been in a store and a pretty catchy song is playing and you feel like downloading it later but you don't know the title of it? That's when this app comes handy.

    Many use Shazam. I still have the best results with this one. I read an article, where it stated that Soundhound did "real tracks" the best. Shazam did "remixes" better, over all.

    Recognize the song from an audio-snippet. Seriously groovy.

    Personally, it's a lot better than shazam as it has a lot more useful features. One of it being that it can take you to the part of the lyric which you scanned/recorded which makes it pretty useful if you're lost at a certain song. It also tells your location and gives you links to the song itself.

    Does what Shazam do, only better. Recognize any song playing in the background.
