Identify unknown song with your iPhone or iPad using SoundHound

Not being able to remember the name of a song you hear can be intensely irritating. SoundHound is an iPhone and iPad app that should be able to eliminate these frustrating occasions by quickly identifying sounds for you. Like other similar apps, SoundHound can be held up to a speaker playing the track you want to identify, but other options are also available.

The app also enables you to sing or hum a tune and it will attempt to identify it - while this is less accurate that identification of an actual song that is playing, it is an interesting and impressive feature.

To help you to find out more about an artist you have identified, SoundHound provides links to artist pages and MP3 purchases in iTunes. There are also links to in-app YouTube videos, band discographies and tour dates.

You can also perform voice activated searched and the app can also be used to display song lyrics. Both iPhone and iPad version are hugely impressive, but the iPad edition of the app includes an enhanced interface to take advantage of the larger screen and includes a scrolling ticker of recent song discoveries.

Verdict:

Definitely an app to impress your friends, SoundHound is startlingly fast and accurate and doesn't require the purchase of credits.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
