    Hi all,
    Just wondering,
    Is there a 'good' (meaning it accesses a decent & up-to-date database, and its audio analysing algorithms are good), music identifier app for the Pre X, similar to progs like shazam, or google/ android's built in music identifier, where you simply hold the phone near a speaker & sample the music for it to be assessed, to tell you the track title, artist etc?

    Cheers
    Al

    Search for an app called "song ID" in app catalog. That's the only one far as I know.

    Hi many thanks for the suggestion,
    Is it any good? Meaning are it's recognition algorithms good and is its back-end music database being kept up to date / expanded?

    Even if there is not - making one is very easy, thanks to AudioTag.info service - http://audiotag.info/ ... any skilled developer can write such app for webOS in few hours ... question is how fresh is their database. Feel free to check and report back if it is worth spending those few hours writing PoC app. Btw. in 2011 it used to be a hot topic (Shazam app for WebOS?) - wish it is 2011 again ...

    EDIT: another option is using Echoprint - Open source music identification + The Echo Nest ... or - ideally - both services at once

    Yup it's the same I can say. The times I used it in the past it worked well!
