    Shazam is a very highly regarded app, yet SoundHound is probably better overall. See our comparison which lightly scratches the surface as to just why SoundHound is better.

    Netiher is free anymore. They both allow a limited number of songs to be ID-ed per month and then are pay after that. Anyone who installed and used Shazam before a certain date (no idea what date it was) is grandfathered in and can use it free for unlimited IDs. I have both installed (double the free IDs!) and both work well.

    Just for information's sake I believe the date that you would need to have had shazam by (this means having used it to ID a song not only having it) was July 16th in order to have unlimited free tags

    It is free to install, but will nly allow a limited number of song IDs per month(7?) unless you buy it or are grandfathered in. SoundHound has a free version which will do the same.

    the free version only allows 5 tags a month. unlimited with the paid version.

    just purchased the paid. had the free one with unlimited tags until the update bricked my phone.

    guess i didnt want to feel limited

    For anyone still on the fence about SoundHound vs. Shazam, check out this new lab video. Pretty much sums it up for the winner on speed and accuracy:

    Why buy a yugo if its only $10 over a civic for $50.

    Sent from someplace, and with something that you need not worry about.

    The car analogy doesn't make much sense, this app for ten cents is a steal :big smile:

    Same here, but now I see stuff on TV where they want us to use Shazam for special offers.
