Have you ever been in a situation, when a really cool song was playing in a cafe or in a shopping center and you want to know what it is to save later? If so, you are in the right place! With current technical progress, it’s as easy as possible.
Technological advances have progressed so far, so writing lyrics and chasing them is just wasting your valuable time now.
There are many special applications to identify anything that can be heard (from music in commercials to TV shows and even your own humming!) In just a few seconds. Try them and never miss an opportunity to save all the good stuff!
Shazam is the most popular music ID application. It was available on smartphones in 2008 and has since been increasingly popular with users. This application is still the best, in terms of identifying songs, because the database is very large.
Shazam is quite easy to use. All you need to do is tap the big blue button with the logo on your screen when the song is playing and the application will give you all information about the track. In addition, Shazam will show you the biography and discography of the artist.
Plus, you will be able to add the tracks found to your Rdio or Spotify playlist, watch YouTube videos of the song if you have it and see all related items. There are actually quite a lot of things you can do!
If you are worried about messing it up by activating the application not fast enough to get the desired song, you can activate the Auto Shazam function, which allows the song ‘shazaming’ in default mode. This means that the application will automatically save all the songs that you will find on the road.
If you don’t have an internet connection when the desired song is playing, Shazam also has a solution: You can record a song and identify it later. Another interesting feature of Shazam is the ability to recognize TV shows.
Shazam is closely connected with all types of social networks. You can share your findings with your Facebook friends and see what they ‘like’. What’s more, you can see what your favorite artists are listening too! This application gives you various recommendations and updates, so you can see all new things and keep up with the times.
There are two versions of the application. If advertisements bother you, you can get Shazam Encore, which is ad-free. Shazam is available on iPhone and Android devices. Even Windows Mobile and Blackberry have applications. Start using it now and don’t miss it!
SoundHound is another great application, which identifies music quickly and precisely. Its features are in many ways similar to Shazam, however, there are some differences between the two applications. SoundHound is famous for its ability to recognize songs by someone humming.
Do you have a melody stuck on your head? Sing this for SoundHound and there is a good chance I will be lucky to find us who are artists and other related details.
SoundHound, unlike Shazam, does not display related matters. However, it effectively provides all other important information, which is sufficient for ordinary users. You can also save songs for later when you are offline; and tell your friends about songs found using Twitter or Facebook.
SoundHoud obviously has many cool features. For example, this allows users to follow lyrics in real time. Try this application too – maybe it will suit your taste better! There are also two versions, the only difference between them is the existence of advertisements.
MusicID is less popular than Shazam and SoundHound and is much simpler. Most of the basic functions coincide, however, this application is not for those who like applications with many additional features. The only working regime is online.
After identifying the song, the application gives you some basic facts about the artist; shows lyrics, YouTube videos and a list of related musicians. It also allows going to the store to buy tracks.
The uniqueness of MusicID is a note that you can write about a song – for example, it can be information about the place where I heard it.
In short, MusicID is a simpler version of the two applications above. Even though it doesn’t have some of the features of the application mentioned, it’s still worth downloading. Don’t you want to drain your battery? Try using MusicID!
Musixmatch is for those who like good lyrics. This is designed to find songs with their lyrics and show them to users. You can say a few lines of a song and the application will show you all the text.
The coolest thing about this application is that it can play songs and lyrics, creating effects like the karaoke effect. It also identifies music playing around you, though that won’t show you as much detail about it as other applications.
Musixmatch is also a website, which stores thousands of lyrics. This application is a great addition to your default music player, especially if you like singing. Download Musixmatch and enjoy your beautiful voice (Oh yes, we know, you have it)! Good atmosphere guaranteed!
Hound is not like other applications. That does not mean identifying music. The thing that is recognized best is your voice. You can give all kinds of orders – ask about the weather, the nearest public place, or various types of news.
The most interesting thing for us here is the opportunity to search for songs and artists just by mentioning their names. Hound points out many useful facts about musicians, such as their biography, updates on social networks or tour dates.
If you don’t want to waste time typing, you should definitely get this application. Its functionality is almost unlimited. Apart from music, you can learn about almost everything on your mind! Get it now and appreciate the time that Hound will save you!
6. Music Detector
There are many music identification applications on the market today, but not all of them are good and comfortable to use. To be honest, this is really similar to Shazam, but the advantage may be the fact that it’s much faster, because it’s not so popular – so it’s not filled with questions.
All the songs you are looking for will be saved in your search history. Here you can’t download songs or make playlists like in TrackID, but that’s the main idea of this application – simple and fast. It has a number of advertisements, but it is quite acceptable because this application works very fast.
We have introduced you to various types of applications that are very helpful in finding songs. We hope you have found something useful for yourself and from now on you will never miss a good trail in your path! Be passionate about music and be smart at choosing apps!
