MusicID with Lyrics Puts You in Tune with Musical Artists

By Bob LeVitus

Ever hear a song on the radio, on television, in a store, or at a club and wonder what it’s called or who is singing it? With MusicID with Lyrics, you may never wonder again. Just launch the $2.99 app and point your iPhone’s microphone at the source of the music. In a few seconds, the song title, artist’s name, and much more magically appear on your iPhone screen.

If all MusicID with Lyrics could do is hear a song and display its name, recording artist, and lyrics in a few seconds, it would probably be enough to make this a great app. But this app does more, such as providing

  • A link to the song in the iTunes Store

  • A link to related videos on YouTube

  • A biography of the artist

  • A map showing where you were when the song was identified

  • A list of similar songs (with info and lyrics)

  • Identification of songs in your iPod Library (with info and lyrics)

  • Capability to search for songs by title, artist, or lyric phrase

  • Capability for you to e-mail song information to your friends

MusicID with Lyrics is great at identifying classical music, jazz, hip-hop, country music, opera, and show tunes. For popular music, including old and obscure songs, MusicID with Lyrics totally rocks (pun intended). This app also makes a jaw-dropping demo of something very cool you can do with your iPhone.
