Have you ever been in a situation hearing some song and desperately want to know the name of it?

Well, I have been many times. So I was very pleased when I found a little application for my iPhone which solves my problem. And since this application is free I hope it's OK to post about it.

Its name is Shazam and you can find it in iTunes here:

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=284993459&mt=8

Although I am using Shazam already several months it always amazes me how fast and accurate the application can recognize the song what I am just listening to. It needs to listen only 10 seconds of the song and there is like 90% chance that it will find the answer. Of course not 100% since the song has to be in the database of Shazam, but they claim more than 6 millions tracks in it.

So far I had very good experience with it. I am able to extract the name and artist of the songs from YouTube mixes, night clubs, restaurants, radio stations etc.

If happens that you have iPhone maybe you can try it and share your experiences...
