Say you are watching a TV show, or a movie, or listening to the radio, or out at a bar, and you hear a song, and you wonder, boy, who is this?
With Shazam, you hit a button on the iPhone, the phone "listens" to the song for about ten seconds and then tells you what song it is.
Its the most incredible thing I've seen on a mobile phone. I have no idea how it works, other than magic. I tried testing it with some really obscure music and Shazam got it right, every time. Not only that, but I was watching a movie, and a song was playing in the background. From ten feet away Shazam was able to recognize the background music in the movie I was watching. Its incredible and its free. You HAVE to get this app.

It is free for a limited time... I think other phones have had this and it was a monthly service fee to use it.

There is another free app (for now?) that does the same thing called Midomi, but their server is constantly down. Assuming they figure that out, it might be an alternative if Shazam starts charging.

Its truly amazing technology. I'd love to know how it works but it would probably make my brain explode.

Dude you don't how useful this would be to me!
-They're are so many 80s,90s, and early millennium songs that Ive heard and just don't remember the name or recognize the artist! This will surely be my first app thanks :)

With Midomi, you can speak the lyrics to a song & it will give the the info. You can also hum the tune & it will do the same. It's really nice!

I dabbled in Shazam earlier today and I am thoroughly impressed. I went through my mom's iTunes which has some rather remote songs and it recognized nearly all of them. I can understand paying a one-time fee but I can't say that I would subscribe to a monthly service fee for it.

Yep, just downloaded it and tested it before I saw this thread.

It really is awsome!

Just hope they don't start charging for it...
