Raise your hand if you love Shazam. Now raise your hand if you thought I was talking about the Shaquille O'Neal blockbuster called 'Kazaam'.
For those who don't know, Shazam is a music discovery app. Long story short, if you hear a song on the radio and would like to know who sings it or what it is called, you open up Shazam, and it listens to the song and tells you everything you ever wanted to know about said song. It's a great service, but it isn't free.
That's where SoundHound comes into play. It too is a music discover app, and as of this week, you get unlimited song IDs on Android and iPhone devices. Granted, if you are thrifty, you have to make some sacrifices. SoundHound will make their money off of advertisements, and in the event you like a song so much you decide to download it, they get a cut of that too.
I already have pretty much abandoned my iPod as my personal music player. My phone has turned into my singular multimedia device The SoundHound app is certainly going to just solidify its place in my entertainment universe.
