SoundHound: Identify Songs and Lyrics with Your Device

Have you ever heard a song that sounds familiar, but you can't remember the name of the song or who sings it? SoundHound will help you track down those elusive tunes. SoundHound can identify and locate the music being played around you. It will even provide you with the lyrics to the song and take you to the song in either the Google Play store or iTunes. Title, artist, lyrics, and a chance to purchase your favorite music--all by letting SoundHound listen in.

When you hear a tune you would like to identify or see the lyrics to, simply open SoundHound, tap the SoundHound icon so that is says it is "Listening" and then let it come up with the list of possible songs.  It will need access to your microphone to work, so don't forget to give it access the first time you use the app.
