If you've ever had an earworm you just can't put a name to, the SoundHound music recognition app -- that even translates your humming -- can be just the sorcery you need. There's now an Android version with a more tablet-centric design and tighter Google integration that brings "streamlined sharing to Facebook, Twitter and more," according to the company. It also trumpeted a stronger relationship with digital music service Rdio, which added interactive music mapping to its SoundHounded track-linking abilities, letting you see others across the globe with the same musical tastes and bad memory. You can grab it at Google Play or Amazon's Appstore for Kindle, but if you're as tone deaf as some of us, don't forget the auto-tune.
SoundHound Unveils Stunning New Design for Android Tablets, Enhancing Overall Engagement, Content Accessibility and User Experience
Launch Partner Rdio to Continue as Featured Sponsor for SoundHound's Interactive Map
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SoundHound, the revolutionary sound search company with more than 130 million users around the world, today released a completely redesigned version of its mobile application for Android tablets, leveraging Google's new graphical user interface. The updated version of SoundHound features an entirely new layout and design, making content more easily discoverable and accessible and a generally improved browsing experience.
"SoundHound on Android tablets is now not only stunning in appearance, it offers improved functionality and an enhanced experience for users"
The redesigned SoundHound app is available today for Google's Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets as well as Amazon's Kindle Fire and Kindle HD.
"SoundHound on Android tablets is now not only stunning in appearance, it offers improved functionality and an enhanced experience for users," said James Hom, SoundHound's Vice President of Products. "By utilizing the tablet's larger screen space and leveraging new tools from Google, users can much more fluidly navigate within the app and have access to more content in one location."
As part of the design launch, SoundHound also deepens its relationship with Rdio, the digital music service. Rdio is the launch partner for this new tablet in the US and continues as the featured partner for SoundHound's interactive mapping feature that allows users to see what songs have been recently SoundHound'ed in their geographic area. Since launching in December with Rdio, interactive mapping has become one of the most popular SoundHound features as users can tap on a SoundHound'ed song displayed on the map and link directly to Rdio to hear the full track.
Google Nexus tablet users can access the new design by updating their SoundHound app in the Google Play store while Kindle users can do the same via the Amazon Appstore.
