    Well, if you didn't have Shazam before their current update, I have bad news for you. New users who download the free version are now limited to 5 uses per month. If you already had Shazam installed, don't worry about it. If you didn't... well, Soundhound is starting to sound like a better alternative...

    The updates states that if you were a user before, you still have unlimited tags.

    If you update will you go from unlimited to 5 uses? Either way I was planning on trying Soundhound.

    I bet at some point it will be like this for people that had it before too.

    As I said earlier, on the details page of the update, it says "If you've used Shazam on your phone prior to 13 Jul 10, you're still entitled to unlimited tagging".

    By the way, Soundhound limits you to 5 songs a month, too.

    Awesome! That's what mine says too! I figured since I hadn't opened the app, I was toast.

    I read the terms of use, and you are still limited to 300 tags per month.

    Did the upgrade and still says it's unlimited for me. Yay! The new version also seems to add a lot of functionality.

    The program is amazing....I was astounded it could pick out songs even in the background of noisy stadiums, restaurants, hockey arenas, and most recently, in a crowded school auditorium full of screaming people.

    I have only had one song it hasn't recognized, which was a song at the closing credits of Flashpoint (the tv show). But Soundhound didn't know it either (although on the second attempt at Soundhound it misidentified the song as some Rihanna song, which I knew it wasn't). So I did some Googling and found out it was "Let it Go" by Daniel Cage. So off to MP3 Downloader and it couldn't find it either.

    Grrrr....so all 3 apps failed me on that one song.

    Does it usually take a long time to find the song? I have just searched one song, "Don't Cry" by GnR, and it took a long time to find it. It took maybe...2 or 3 minutes.

    I haven't had it take more than maybe...20 seconds? Probably less than that.

    EDIT: just did Don't Cry playing from my laptop and it took about 10 seconds total.

    I've never had it take more than 10-20 seconds. If it took you 2-3 minutes, I'd venture to guess it was a result of a poor data connection.

    I see under the settings for the nw one there is a "social" section with Facebook and Twitter....but they only allow you to logout (but not in)

    Is there someway to link these up?

    Could be. Wasn't sure if it was that or a hard section of the song.

    I even removed the app Monday and reinstalled it yesterday to see if it was gonna limit me to 5 tags. Nope. Unlimited. Pretty cool.
