    While that find of the Hardware Test's recording capabilities is a big find, I'd almost guarantee that most larger companies aren't going to want to work with undocumented and unsupported APIs that need to fake the palm namespace in order to use it. Maybe we'll be able to get a decent homebrew voice recorder out of that discovery, but I don't see it changing anything at all for Shazam.

    I've requested Shazam several times as well, unless Palm opens up a private API to them it's not going to happen until they open up the phones hardware to developers a bit more.

    Hi there

    While I can say our development team are continually working on bringing the service to as many platforms and regions as possible, I’m not entirely sure when or if a version for Palm handsets will be available.

    Full details of any new release would be made available on our website prior to launch date.

    I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help
    Not very promising...OR helpful!

    I completely forgot about this. Shazaam can't do a damn thing until Palm opens up the mic API.

    I added my request as well, I'd love to see Shazam on the Pre. Hopefully if they receive enough requests, once Palm opens things up, they'll work on a port.

    What do you suppose is keeping Palm from implementing a mic API? Clearly there is code that uses the microphone in the phone app. Perhaps this is all very low-level right now and highly specific for the phone app? Or maybe they are working on really packing a lot of functionality into it or something? This just seems like one of those fundamentals that ought to be in there already, and since it wouldn't seem too complicated, it's absence is a little mysterious. But I don't precisely know what I'm talking about either.

    Probably exactly like the download manager API that was locked to Palm in 1.1 and opened up to the public in 1.2: it is probably buggy and/or unfinished, so they want to lock it down to only their app until they have time to do more with it.

    I find it hard to believe that they'd lock it down for any other reason than it's barely working for their purpose at this time.

    Unfortunately, Palm doesn't have infinite resources to get everything done at once, so they do need to prioritize on things.

    My response was a little bit different than that above. And gives me hope!

    Hi there

    While I can say our development team are continually working on bringing the service to as many platforms and regions as possible, I’m not entirely sure when a version for Palm handsets will be available. It will happen, but there is currently no date for it to be launched.

    Full details of any new release would be made available on our website prior to launch date.

    I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

    I recently found out that there is a competitor to Shazam, called Midomi.

    can find their site at midomo.com, and it actually works on your pc, and seems to work pretty well. It lets you hum the tune as well.

    And they have a iPhone App, so maybe we should e-mail them as well to get an app for Palm Pre.

    The link to the site is:

    Search for Music Using Your Voice by Singing or Humming, View Music Videos, Join Fan Clubs, Share with Friends, Be Discovered and Much More For Free! - midomi.com

    and you have to e-mail them via support@midomi.com

    You need to email Palm, no app like this will exist until the phones hardware is more accessible by the API.

    I e-mailed Palm as well, just thought e-mailing Shazam and Midomi, will get the wheels moving more. It couldn't hurt, no?

    even if they WANTED to make the app they couldnt because they dont have access to the necessary parts of the sdk. i guess all that emailing them would do is let them know that demand is wanted for their app.

    Yeah and that is critical, too show the demand for apps like those.

    is Shazaam still that hot? Only time I ever saw anyone use it was when the iPhone was new and a co-worker was showing it off. Oh...and once at a bar in St. Maarten, but by the time the dude had pulled out his iPhone to get the song name for his friend, someone else had already said the name.

    aside from Shazaam, isn't there a service (thought it was 411-song) that does pretty much the same thing? You call the number, let it hear the song, and they text you the info.

    I used Shazam and Midomi on my Windows Mobile phone and found them quite useful. (I liked Shazam better than Midomi, for the record -- thought it worked better and was more accurate. Midomi has a better concept, though, just not execution, yet.)

    The only person I 'showed it off to' was my wife.
