Editors' review

Remember "Name That Tune," the classic game show where contestants had to identify songs after hearing just a brief clip? That's the basic premise of SongPop Free, a free Android app from FreshPlanet. SongPop not only tests your musical knowledge, but also extends it by exposing you to new genres and artists, familiarizing you with the classics, and quizzing your trivia knowledge. You can also challenge your friends and relations via Facebook and Twitter. SongPop makes it easy to share quizzes, playlists, and tunes. It boasts long, high-quality audio clips, weekly tournaments, bonus content, and other features. We tried SongPop Free on a device running the Android operating-system release Ice Cream Sandwich.

You'll need to create an account to use SongPop Free, though the app's start page let us log in and create an account with our e-mail address. However, you can also log in via Facebook. The app opened on its Create Game page, which showed a running countdown to the end of the next tournament more than three days later. We had three choices: Create Game, Find Friends (via Facebook), or Shop. When we tapped Create Game, Song Pop asked us how we wanted to find an opponent: by Facebook, e-mail, username, or randomly. Next we picked a Playlist from the basic offerings SongPop Free starts with, which are Love Songs, Modern Rap, Classic Rock, and Female Singers, though more Playlists are available. We chose a random opponent. The app loaded a clip and offered four choices; we merely had to choose our answer. Winning unlocked more songs. Sometimes our opponents didn't respond right away.

We had a lot of fun testing our musical knowledge with SongPop Free. The clips are real songs by the real artists, and the sound quality is pretty good over the phone speaker. This jazzed-up version (yes, Jazz too!) of good old "Name That Tune" rocks. We can see how it could quickly become as addictive as a catchy Top 40 pop tune from back in the day! And if you like exposing yourself to new artists, styles, and songs, here's a fun way to do it.
