Shazam alternative for sung/hummed tunes

If you, like me, have a good memory for tunes but a shoddy memory for lyrics or song titles, then you’ll have loved Shazam – the smartphone app that recognises music when its being played and tells you what it is and where its from.

Whilst staying with Sarah and Ilkka we tried it with a hummed tune, which – to be fair – it doesn’t claim to be able to cope with. It didn’t. So I researched alternatives and found Soundhound – it works on both Android and iOS devices and when I sing to it – it works out the song title pretty regularly.

Fantastically clever, and good for spontaneous singing competitions!
