There is an app for you iPod and iPhone that you can get to find out what that song is called. The app is called Shazam, it only takes a few seconds to find out what the song is called. This app works on WiFi and on 3g networks, so you are not just tied to finding the names of songs when you are near a internet connection.
Currently I have it on my iPod and I will definitely be putting it onto my iPhone when I get one, it is so useful! You can get a trial of Shazam which is what I done first to see if it was worth paying money for it, with the trial version, you are only allowed to “tag” a certain amount of songs each month.
Tagging songs is the term used when you want to find out what the song is called. The full version of Shazam is €3.99 on iTunes store and I decided I would get it because it is so helpful.
To use it on your iPod you will need a microphone so the earphones with the microphone works fine with this app. On the iPhone obviously you don’t need anything extra, it just uses the mouth piece you speak into.
To tag a song, you begin by pushing the big Shazam logo in the app, then you just put the mic near the speaker, for better sound, and the app listens to it for about 20 -30 seconds, then it at sends it off and matches it and send back the name of the song.
Other extras on the Shazam app are to show the top ten songs currently in the charts and also you can see a history of songs you have tagged.
You can get the trial of Shazam Here.
