Great app...only the lack of last.fm keeps shaazam as an option.
Music ID, voice search, track listings, lyrics, what else could you want? Fantastic!
Love this app very helpful on my moment pretty cool app.

Nice. Way better than shazam. HTC hero
It's definitely a unique and interesting concept but it just doesn't find most things I search for. DROIDX2.3.3
This app is the best
Crashes everytime on my Pulse (2.1) plus can't find microphone. I'm disappointed.
I love iiiittt :) it works so fast and accurate and I love that I can actually sing a song into it and it finds it for me
It is excellent!
