My memory might be failing me though. There was another competitor to shazam with an orange soundcloud like logo that also has song id. It could've been that app.
Edit: It was soundhound and it supports humming
Hummed the riff and had it in no time.
You'll note that you need to define a sequence of similar notes as 'down' or 'up' to make it work.
I have great melody memory, terrible title and lyrics memory, and good pitch, and it has never helped me the many times I've tried to figure out what song I got in my head.
Other games often have a guest account for this with some random name, which they can then upgrade to a real profile by signing up.
I'm unable to download it right now, but my initial concerns are:
- How do you stop people from cheating by singing the words, or otherwise just saying the name of the song? Or, depending on the scoring system, could you not just submit silence?
- How do you deal with people screaming profanity or disturbing audio clips?
433 by John Cage?
On an unrelated note: Even though I type the exact name of the app, it is hard to find it on Google play. I have to type almost all the name and description to find it. The play store is so saturated.
But I agree about the saturation.
It's uncomfortable for me to think how this is showing my age.
Only if youtube add the feature of getting a humming as input and show the video of that thing.
It is always nice to see a fellow dev being so engaged and listening.
