midomi mobile is a music search and discovery application for the iPhone that lets users search for music in four different ways. Sing--just sing or hum a few seconds of a song; Say--just say the song or artist name you're looking for; Type--just type a song or artist name the way it sounds, regardless of spelling; or Grab--just hold your phone to a speaker playing original music for a few seconds. Regardless of which way you search, midomi will find your song. Once you find a song, you can share it with friends, watch it online, or buy it from the iTunes store. You can also browse artist photos, albums, and biographies.
Gotta have that song? Midomi is an excellent, free application that returns song titles and artists when you sing, hum, speak, type, or play a request into your iPhone. The four input types are convenient for giving you freedoms to dictate your search style. While the input quality may vary depending on ambient noise, our tests were fairly accurate, and typing usually prevailed in the rare case that singing failed.
Take heed that Midomi is the discovery app advertised and not a song downloader. Like other native iPhone apps, this one will steer you toward legitimate purchasing through iTunes. Indeed, the musically curious are offered the chance to buy the single in addition to sharing the song details with friends, watching YouTube videos, or hearing sample clips from other songs on the album.
