  • 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.

      Must be STE, I only have the normal sources plus MMi. I installed the original version of it from installer instead of Erica's site, and got an update for it about a half an hour ago.

      I believe Edge is not available here in Canada. I have an iPhone and I just use wifi to go online. Edge is very slow anyway so why bother?

      Edge is available here in Canada, it's just ridiculously overpriced.

      this has got to be the best app out there on installer so far - totally astonishing; ive been trying to stump it w/ covers of songs by newer artists, and it nails em all! absolutely amazing! mad props and double kudos to the developer(s) of this one...

      Mine only works sporadically.

      How loud does the music need to be?
      To Eurisko, I tend not to rely on installer to give me what's out there... Beta 6 should be on installer now, but don't forget erica's website where beta 6 was available long before it was on installer.
      As for the music, I found if there is background noise, I need to either turn up the tunes or hold the phone closer (no more than 5 inches seems fine), I have also had sucess getting ID's from MTV sitting on the sofa 10 feet away.

      Cheers.

      This app is great!! I have been looking for this for a long time! Beta 6 looks and works great. Now I dont have to use voice notes to record a song I hear and then try to find the lyrics and artists by doing random google searches!

      still having the problem that it doesn't recognize most of the songs! too bad! hopefully that will be improved to, although I think that's beyond erica's reach....

      I have noticed that if I'm in the middle of using it and an email notification comes in the phone reboots. Other than that it works wonderfully.

      It's nearly impossible to fool this app! I listen to a lot of jazz - with no vocals - and it still gets every one correct, down to the exact artist and album!
