Gadgets We Like: SoundHound Search Application for iPhones, iPads, and iPods

Check out this week’s gadget, picked by Bryan, our very techsavvy TuneCore Artist Support Rep…

Take a peek at this rocking app I just downloaded for my iPhone!  SoundHound is most excellent and dare I say, a better search tool than Shazam because of its awesome interface!  I use this app a ton when I’m out cruising the local bar scene and I hear an awesome tune but can’t remember the artist’s name.  I hold the phone up in the air just like I would hold a lighter while “Free Bird” is playing during a concert, and the app does the rest.


You can also search for a song, album, or artist by typing in what you’re looking for, or you can use the ‘speak’ option and shout out what you’re trying to find.  When the search results pop up, BAM! You’ve got links to buy the song on iTunes, lyrics, YouTube links, and you can even launch a Pandora station based on the song.  Super awesome and highly recommended from this super cool dude!

Apple  announced yesterday that Soundhound is the top paid iPad app of all time. The paid version is ad free with some additional premiums.

Have you tried this one out?
