Gadgets We Like: Songnote Lets You Send Messages Through Tunes

July 19, 2012

You know when you’re listening to music and suddenly a song comes on that immediately takes you back to a specific memory or person? Songnote, an app made by the Darling Group, can help you capitalize on that moment.  Compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, Songnote lets you express yourself by sending messages in the form of music.

So let’s go back to that situation where you’re listening to music on your phone. Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” starts playing.  You remember hearing him play it live at a concert your dad took to you when you were young, and you want to send your dad the song to remind him.

This is where Songnote comes in.

All you need to do is open the app on your phone, and if the music is still playing it will be preselected. Type a little note to your dad like “Hey Dad, remember those front row seats?” and then hit ‘send.’ You can choose to send it as a facebook wall post or an email (if your dad isn’t one of those hip dads who has a facebook account).

When your dad receives your message, he’ll be able to hear the full song if he has that song in his iTunes library, or the 1:30 preview in iTunes if he doesn’t own it.

So the next time you hear a song and it reminds you of someone, or you want to send someone a message that can best be expressed by a song, check out Songnote!

Songnote is available for $0.99 in iTunes.
