This just doesn't get old: hold your phone to the air to grab the song playing at the supermarket and have it identified in a few seconds. We live in a privileged age.



From The App Developer: When you hear a song and wonder what it is, Shazam is there with the answer. Hold your iPhone to the music and within seconds we'll tell you the artist and track name.

Very cool and free, but you said it would identify humming. It doesn't. At all. You lied. Gizmodo lied to me :(

I've got some songs stuck in my head and thought I would finally know what they are. Oh well, at least now I can possibly grab them the next time they're played somewhere.

From the help file: Shazam identifies recorded music. We can't identify singing, humming or live performances.
