Music Identification program

A little new and I've been searching but no luck.  My frient has an iPhone that all she has to do is click a button, hold up her iPhone, and it tells her what song is playing, the artist, etc.  Is there a program similar to this for a BB Curve?  And not the Nobex Radio Companion - all that does is give me the playlist of my local radio stations - something I can do by going to their sites.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Music Identification program

hello, it is called Shazam. It's free for iPhones users. For other mobile phone users, it is also available as soon as they can install Java applications (jad/jar).

Re: Music Identification program

Thank for the tip.  I went and looked it up, and it appears to only be available in the UK at the moment.  Sorry, should have added that - I'm in Missouri, USA right now.

 

It looks like they are preparing for the US to limited companies, though.  But, not T-mobile.

My info:

BB Curve (8320)

Re: Music Identification program

AT&T seems to have made a concurrent of Shazam, called MusicId :

Re: Music Identification program

another concurrent !
Midomi.

Seems to work on desktop browser, as well as iPhone. I didn't find a java application for mobile phones.

Re: Music Identification program

Thank you all for your help.  But, I'm looking for it to work on a Blackberry rather than an iPhone.
