SoundHound is designed to do the same thing as Shazam – to understand what song you are hearing. Plus, SoundHound promises to identify a song / artist even if you just sing a tune.
True, the program does not always cope with this task, apparently, a lot depends on the quality of your performance. SoundHound also offers voice and text search by artist, album and song. The found track can be immediately downloaded from iTunes, check for ringtones with this melody, add it to the favorites list, share the link in social networks or via SMS.
The paid version of the app for $ 6.99 differs only in the absence of ads and some additional features. SoundHound is suitable for iPhone, iPad, 2nd and 3rd generation iPod touch. The firmware must be at least 4.0, and the Internet connection (wi-fi or 3G) is fast enough to transfer music.
The principle of operation of both utilities is the same: recording a sounding fragment of a song and searching through the database of matches. Please note that both Shazam and SoundHound are not good at handling Russian-language songs and performers. Shazam's music base appears to be more extensive than the competitor's, but the first app we reviewed has a habit of sometimes misidentifying the track. So if you are afraid of confusion, you can use both programs to control each other.
