  • Your iPhone Listens to Music Too? Listen.app
    Erica Sudan has come up with another little ingenious app called Listen. Believe it or not, just hold your iphone up to some music, and your iphone will happily list the song, artist and album! Never again will you have to ask everyone around you "what's that song again?"



    For now you can visit Erica's Site to download and then install manually but Ste Packaging should have it on their installer source very soon. Very Cool App!

    [via tuaw] thanks Erica for the tip . . . and the app of course

    edit: Ste has it up on his installer source now
    second edit: if you like it give it some digg love

    third edit: the service is disabled for good it looks like. the owners of the music db apparently don't like people freely accessing it.

      I have 1.1.2 also and have the connection problem - I tried Edge and WiFi to see if it would make a difference but nothing at all.

      Can someone confirm that this works over edge? I'm stuck at work just reading about it until I get somewhere with wifi or service!

      It hangs at the Contacting info server for me too. I am on 1.1.2.

      EDIT: Ok, well, of course, it was one of those "could it really be that simple" things If you are having the hanging at the contacting info server screen, try turning your phone upside down so the speaker of your phone is aimed at the music source. That did it for me. Great App!

      holy crap...im new to this music id ,thing from what ive been told its not such a new thing but i dont care its f***ing awsome. I played the most random section of the wierdest songs and it knew what it was...i actualy used it to get the info on a few songs have been namless until today. ALSO you dont need very much i think it actualy takes like 5 seconds but even if you only give it 2-3 it works. havent used it on egde but with wifi it retrievs the info realy quick. I would like it to have somthing to view the recent songs searched and a way to append the songs info to the notepad or just somthing to come back to app and have the info ready to rock overall freaking sweat

      i even kept a time count...roughly 15 seconds from start of app to the song info, did it a couple times to make sure and it works absolutley fine. dont know whats up with 1.1.1 or the other guys just point the RECEIVER at the music and your golden (i am sitting a computer and my phone is a foot from the speaker) so perhaps this may be different when out about the city with ambient noise but for in the car, at a party or a club where the music comes in loud and crisp this will work quite well even when on the edge.

      I just checked it on 25 songs by different artists/groups played through iTunes and it identified every single one! Amazing.....

      I'm sitting at work and just installed it. Sits at connecting for info for me also. I'm on EDGE.

      However, I think this is a really cool idea.

      Best app ever. Kinda slow on edge but works very good never the less. It even recognized some Papoose and Saigon mixtape stuff.
