  • 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 believe her name is Erica Sadun and not Suden. She is one of the top hackers so we should really spell her real name properly.

      I had something on my RazR like this. Very cool program except it was subscription based. Good job Erica.

      I think Erica has the potential to make a small fortune selling hers app once Apple opens up iTunes to 3rd parties.

      Beta 2 works great with 1.1.1 just to let everyone know. iTunes dosent work, but Im not sure if it is a mistake or something is wrong with teh server. There is still a lot of room for improvement, but I know Erica will make this app top notch...

      What do you mean when you say "iTunes doesn't work"? WiFi iTunes store?

      Just FYI since someone brought the topic up. Listen.app is jsut a proof of concept right now. Team members are working on getting official licensing from Gracenote for the long haul

      There is a feature to search iTunes for the song that the app indentified. It dosent seem to work right though...

      Is there anyway we can get a progress bar when "connecting to server" screen is on? Something like the text message progress bar, just so we know thats its still searching and not frozen.

      This is one of the coolest apps I've seen yet. If it were combined with the TuneWiki for lyrics... How cool would that be? Sample a song playing --> find the name of the song and get its lyrics.

      Very Nice, It detects lots of songs... I was able to play "American Idiot" on my guitar, and it picked it up.

      But it doesn't seem to recognize mashups like Dean Gray's "American Edit" album.

      Anyone with a limited EDGE plan such as those in Canada have to be careful because this uses TONS of data. About a few MB's each time it connects to the server. Be careful!

      Is it supposed to take 5 to 10 minutes? My phone has been contacting the server for over 7 minutes now. I tried Crank That (Soulja Boy) and it took forever so i quit and tried again still nothing.

      Works great with WiFi but with Edge I can't get it to work.
      Did anybody get it go with Edge?

      Supposedly it works on Edge but I haven't been able to get it working using the same songs that it successfully recognized on wi-fi. But it's still a great app!
