  • 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.

      Right. They got wise to the iPhones that were pinging the Sony site. Erica has a message on her site stating this, and that she is waiting on a license from Gracenote.

      I have to say that I continue to be amazed. I realize that I am not a beginner at posting in forums, but, sheesh...

      Don't even newbies HAVE to minimally actually READ the post that is just before their very own? I mean, the last half a dozen posts or so are all asking the exact same question that has ALREADY been answered.

      Can't the moderators PLEASE address this... again.... and then just delete the posts that have nothing in them but repetitious asking of information that is already posted?

      /end rant

      No, it's not happening to anyone else. This app is working perfectly, trouble free for everyone, except you and the other 1 posters who can't bother to read the dozen or so posts directly before your own.

      Okay - for those who DON'T BOTHER TO READ...
      The Listen app IS NOT WORKING NOW because the service is down. Erica, the creator of the app, is waiting for a license or some such thing in order for the service to work again... if that happens.

      So, until you see something posted that the service is back up, LISTEN WILL NOT WORK. You can uninstall it, and reinstall it until you have worn out dent marks on the screen of your phone, and it still will not work.

      For those who really don't understand, trying to make Listen work now is like trying to watch TV when you have no cable/satellite service.


      Is this clear enough?

      so if you hit the "push to start sampling" button, and then get a text, the iphone will crash and do a soft reset.

      but hopefully the recog. service gets up and running soon!
