Review: Songify turns your humming or singing into a cool tune

Turn speech into a song automatically with this unique and fun application.

Songify auto-tunes anything you say or sing into a song, but you can only enjoy your music through the app. Sharing and downloading the track can be a pain, too. Still, this app is quite unique and worth trying just to hear the cool effect.

This app turns any noise you make into a hip-hop, dance, or pop track. It's made by the folks behind Autotune The News -- to give you a better idea of the gist of the app. The app works surprisingly quickly, but it doesn't let you adjust your vocals or the finished song at all. It just Auto-Tunes your sounds and matches them to your chosen song's beat as best it can. As for beats you can choose, Songify only offers a handful of freebies. The rest -- which include some well-known pop songs and viral video anthems -- require credits to unlock. Once you've finished your song, you can add a custom image and share it through e-mail or make it your ringtone. You can't download it to your media player, though. If you do share it, it takes your friends to a special Web page, so they can't download it either. That's a little annoying, but it's not a total deal breaker.

Though the app's novelty may wear off after a couple of tracks, Songify is still a fun app with a neat feature that really can't be duplicated.
