Okay iPhone users!  I am excited to bring you this app review.  Since I have had my iPhone (2 years or so), I have been using an app called Shazam.  I thought it was “the best thing since sliced bread.”  UNTIL, a fellow blogger Benjamin Minnich told me about SoundHound.  He uses it for Android.  I was interested, so I headed over to the SoundHound website to see if they had an iPhone version; sure enough, they did.  Now keep in mind I have used an app like this, so I was not sure what to expect.  Ben said, “I got a song name and artist from using it in a movie theater and the other day I just hummed for it!”  I had high expectations for this app once I heard that.  My high expectations were met and exceeded.  This app is amazing.  The user interface is clean, simple and easy to use.  The way it works is phenomenal.  I found it to be faster than the other app I used.  It found songs, identified them and made it even fun to see if the app could figure them out.  It was extremely accurate, every time.  Now that I have this app, I will never use anything else to figure out what song that is playing or who sings it.  If you’re anything like me or just a music lover, this app is a must have.  I’ll stop my ranting or raving in this case with one example.  Today, I took my girlfriend shopping.  As we walked through the mall, I heard a song over the speakers above that caught my ear.  I wanted to test SoundHound.  So without a thought, I opened up the app.  It loaded up (very quickly I might add); it began to listen.  A minute later, it identified this song:  Lesley Roy – Unbeautiful.  Now don’t make fun of me for being captivated by such a soft song.  The point is SoundHound rocks, and you should have it.
