  • 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.

      So I can be driving in the car and I hear a song I like, I can literally hold up the iPhone to the speakers and the app will detect the song?

      Incredible.

      Just tried it with an ACDC song and it worked great! Very fast too! Marvelous program.

      I love this app, But do you think Erica will add the ability to view the song in the iTunes Wifi Music store? That'd be great!

      holy crap! who needs an unlock when we have cool apps like this. i'm kind of kidding, but for my personal iphone if I had to choose between paying $90 for a NEXT SIM and having "Listen" for free or not having "Listen" and having a free unlock... I'll pay for the Next SIM and keep Listen It ROCKS. I tried some semi random stuff, Alecia Keys (my wife's music) and then some hiphop: Radioinactive and Bus Driver and Blackalicious, all 3 worked great!

      This is just absolutely amazing!. I don't know how long this technology has been out but all my friends are just so impressed along with myself. I haven't had one song it didn't recognize yet.
